These areas were restricted before and in complete
isolation from the rest of the world . The Government
of Nepal has recently opened the areas to trekking
groups organized through recognized agencies.
The Government has laid down strict rules in
an attempt to maintain the special cultural
heritage and the natural beauty of the environment.
These areas offer unique cultural encounters
and interesting experiences to adventure visitors.
1. Kanchanjunga Base Camp (28-30 days)
Exploration of far eastern Nepal is for the
experienced trekkers who seeks complete escape
into the wildest, richest part of the Himalayas.
Few have ventured into this area and little
is know about the trail, local culture or ecology
of the area. Many members of the snow leopard
staff are from this area. The villages are inhabited
by the Rai, Limbu and Bhotes tribes who are
some original inhabitants of Nepal these tribes
are well know for their bravery in the army
as Gorkha soldiers, Kanchanjunga is the third
highest peak in the world. The area was only
opened to foreign visitors as lately as 1988.
2. Manasalu Region (20-22 days):
We conduct treks to the Manaslu region - a region
to the north of the Gorkha area . This is fascinating
course which visits the three peaks of Manaslu
know as the “Japanese Peaks”. It
is a well loved trek from Trishuli Bazar to
the Budhi Gandaki passing through a huge precipitous
valley to the contrasting world of Sama crossing
snow-covered Larkya La and descending to the
Marshyangdi River. It is a relatively hard and
long trek which require extra days of rest which
can be done at Sama before crossing the pass.
We begin our trek form Trisuli Bazar which is
4 hours drive form Kathmandu and trek ends in
3. Dolpo – Far West Nepal( 28
Dolpo, one of the highest inhabited plateaus
in the world, is 2,100sq. miles, inside Nepal’s
north-western frontier with Tibet. Its 45,000
Tibetan-speaking inhabitants live in thirty-five
scattered villages and monasteries that lie
at altitudes of 11,000 feet to 15,000 feet.
Dolpo is part of Nepal, but in race, culture
and language, its people the ‘Dolpo-Pa’
is no different from their northern neighbors.
They are descendants of Tibetans who migrated
to the legendary. ‘Bayul, The Hidden Land‘
before the 10th century. Much of the Dolpo is
preserved in the 2,100 sq. miles of Shey-Phoksundo
National park, Nepal’s largest nature
reserve. Dolpo is an invaluable addition to
the westerners understanding of an almost vanished,
infinitely precious part of the human experience.
Today, Dolpo is one of the last enclaves of
traditional agrarian Tibetan culture, a land
where valleys lie at elevations as high as the
highest peaks of Europe, and mountains soar
beyond the reach of humans.
4. Mustang-West Nepal (14 days):
The name 'Mustang' refers to the arid Tibet
like region at the North end of the Kali Gandaki
which is known to its inhabitants as Lo. The
capital of the Mustang district is Jomsom (2700
m), where you start and finish your trek. The
spectacular 25 minutes flight from Pokhara flies
in between Dhaulagiri (6167 m) and Nilgiri (7061
In March 1992, the first tourist groups were
allowed into upper Mustang.
The trek leads to Lo-Manthang through Nyi La
pass at 3950 m, the highest point in the trek.
The countryside is similar to the Tibetan plateau
with its endless expanses of yellow and gray
rolling hills eroded by wind and almost treeless
barren landscapes. Houses and temple construction
throughout the region uses some stone but mostly
sun-baked bricks of mud. The people of Mustang
are called "Lopa". The religion practiced
in Mustang is Tibetan Buddhism primarily that
of the Sakyapa sect. Most Chortens and Gompas
in Mustang are painted in the gray, white and
yellow stripes on its red walls identifying
the Sakyapa structures that reflect the surrounding
hills. The best time for trekking in Mustang
is from late March to early November.
