Upper Mustang Trek

(pokhara-Jomsom-Mustang-Pokhara=12days)

Mustang trek (Damodar Kunda) we take a morning flight from Pokhara to Jomsom. The district headquarters of Mustang. The sound of jingling horse and pony bells as the Mustangi people pass by with their loads becomes an omnipresent aspect of the trek from now on. We trek up the windy Kali Gandaki valley to Kagbeni. The wide trail along a sandy, saligram-filled riverbed provides views of the surrounding peaks of Dhaulagiri, Tukuche and Nilgiri, and to the south the entire Annapurna Massif. Kagbeni, spectacularly situated atop a cliff overlooking the confluence of the Kali Gandaki and the Jhong Khola rivers, is the last village in Lower Mustang and guards the entrance into Upper Mustang, visible across the Kali Gandaki riverbed. It is an oasis of patchwork fields in the midst of rocky, arid mountains. This ancient and partially ruined citadel town provides us with a taste of scenes to come in upper Mustang, with its narrow alleyways and tunnels, irrigation canals, green fields of wheat and barley and its imposing and newly-restored brick-colored gompa.  Here we go through the police check, after completing our paperwork we enter Upper Mustang, the long-forbidden region of Nepal. Lo Monthang, aptly named the ”Plain of Aspiration.

 

Tiji is the main Festival in Mustang.It comes every year in May.The festaival is fixed by main Lama from  Tibetan calender.It goes up to three days.Tiji Festival – Lo Manthang presents a concise overview of the land and people of Lo, the history of Tiji and its significance, as well as the main events of the festival and the role of the community in it.

Dhaulagiri Trek (Pokhara to Dhaulagiri Circuit -Jomsom-Pokhara 12 to 15 days)

 

Dhaulagiri trek is one of most adventure trek in Nepal.This trek has high altitude pass like -French pass(5365m),Thapa pass(5244m),Dhampus pass(4915m). Trekking around Dhaulagiri is an exceptional trek the passes through staggering alpine terrain. Until recently few trekkers ever attempted it but now foreign trekking companies advertise it along side standard treks. It isn’t standard, being tough and demanding and has shocked many trekkers who expected something similar to the Annapurna Circuit or the Everest trek. It is better labelled as an extreme route; extreme, because you need a rope and should also take ice-axe and crampons. Going without a guide It is very difficulty with its extended high altitude nature it should only be attempted when snow-free, from late September to December or perhaps May and early June. This means don’t go during March or April, these times can be particularly unpredictable and dangerous.This trek begins at the lowlands of Baglung inhabited by the Brahmins and Chhetries. In the trek, come across the Gurung and Magar Tribes. Beginning from Sal and Pristine Pine forest, the trail foes to barren lands from where we embark on mountain experience with the exquisite Dhaulagiri in front of us. We cross the French Pass and then the Dhampus Pass which offers the breath-taking view of the Dhaulagiri Range, the Annapurna Range, Nilgiri and a look at the deepest gorge in the world, the Kaligandaki gorge.  the trek finish at Marpha then after it takes 3 days way to Ghorepani/Poonhill to come back in Pokhara.

 

Manaslu Trek (15 to 18 Days)

 

The main journey here is around Manaslu trek reaching north of the Himalayas and circling the great Manaslu-Himalchuli-Baudha massif. Since Manaslu is a special area for trekkers and was only officially opened from 1991 onwards for trekking, it needs special permits. Three-week complete treks will give you an exciting, adventurous and once in a lifetime experience.

Pristine mountain views, rich culture and genuine adventure sum up the trek experience around the 8156m Manaslu. Beginning in Gorkha, home of the celebrated Gorkha soldiers, visit the ancient palace of King Prithivi Narayan Shah. Soon after civilization fades and we pass though ancient villages, observing the simple agricultural habits of its people. Then we ascend the Gandaki River valley, fed by innumerable rivers and waterfalls, offering the chance of a plunge into some bathing pools. From here, the strenuous section begins and yaks begin to outnumber people in the rocky landscape. In Samagoan (3450m) we visit the glacial green lake of Birendra, before crossing into mystic Samdo, a mere 15km from the Tibetan border. Here Tibetan monks inhabit sacred monasteries and combined with the views of Tibetan plateau against stark white Himalayas makes this is a truly spiritual place. Continuing, more monasteries await in Larkya Bazaar, along with the biggest challenge – crossing Larkya La (pass.) This 5213m snow-covered pass demands the utmost respect. Snow-covered peaks over 6500m tower above as we cross. The descent, once off the snow takes us through alpine then tropical areas, bursting with ferns, bamboo, pine trees, waterfalls and aqua-blue green lakes laced with cotton-white beaches. Finally, Manaslu will disappear as we descend to Beshishar (832m.) This 3 week excursion will leave you with a sense of peace and respect for the people of Nepal and its ecological wonders.This trek is now an alternative to the Annapurna circuit trek due to road access in Annapurna

 

Everest Trek ( 14 to 20 days)

 

Mt. Everest, at 29,028 ft is the highest mountain peak of the world. Also, known by the third pole, Everest soars as Sagarmatha high above the sky and the clouds.This region also includes Lhotse (27,923 ft), Cho Oyu (26,750 ft) and Amadablam (22,491 ft).

Everybody knows of Mt Everest and that’s the simple reason. The trek has a number of stunning attractions, but it also has some distinct drawbacks which might well deter potential trekkers were it not for the undeniable plus point of being able to say you’ve been to the base of the highest mountain in the world. The attractions include spectacular scenery and the outgoing Sherpa people of the Solu Khumbu, the region where Mt. Everest and its attendant lesser peaks are located. The drawbacks include the long, hard slog to get there and the acclimatization problems caused by the region’s considerable altitude. It’s not until you get right into the Solu Khumbu region that the Everest trek really gets interesting. The first part of the trek is not only a hard slog, but is also pretty sparse in the breathtaking views department. The hard slog comes about because the trek doesn’t follow valleys-like the Annapurna treks-instead the Everest trek cuts across the valleys. So for day after day it’s a tiring the other. The Everest trek starts in the Nepali speaking Hindu lowlands and ends in the Tibetan-Buddhist highlands where the Sherpas are renowned for their enterprise, hard work, civic responsibility and devotion to the practice of Buddhism.

 

Gurja/Churan Himal – Dhorpatan Trek (12 to 15 days)
