The best off the beaten path trekking in Nepal! This 12 day trek takes you to locations where very few tourists have visited before. The only ones that have is usually because their guides live in the area! This trek will be operated on an expedition-style camping trek.
This off the beaten path trek is ideal for beginners, families, corporate, or school excursion trips. The highest point on this trek is only 3365 meters above sea level. It provides you a well-rounded adventure with a good combination to observe the lives of some ethnic people of Nepal and their lifestyle along with the culture. You will be trekking through an agricultural region of Nepal.
The actual hiking per day on most days is five to six, except towards the end it will take seven hours. You should be fit by that period. The panoramic views are unlike anything in the Himalayas or perhaps even the whole world. On clear days you will be able to see Mount Everest, Lhotse, and other mountains.
The highlight of the trek is when we go up a hill of 3365 meters to witness the mountain range from Mount Dhaulagiri in the west to Mount Pandim, which is in Sikkim to the East. The panoramic distance is just under 500km. as the crow flies according to Google maps. Eight mountains above 8000 meters on are this vista, including Mount Everest along with hundreds of peaks that are between 6 thousand and 7 thousand meters high. It is advised that you bring binoculars for close up views as the distance of the vista is massive.
There aren’t many places that have a perfect combination of being in an off the beaten track with the best panorama of the Himalayan peaks.
