    Itinerary

    Arrival on: Kathmandu

    Departure from: Kathmandu

    Day 1

    Drive from Kathmandu to Sundarijal (1350 m) and trek to ChisoPani (2300 m)

    We thrive to deliver you a life-changing trekking experience and as you will be done embracing the beautiful and authentic culture of Nepal in Kathmandu, the hour's drive to Sundarijal begin. As you set your foot in Sundarijal, you will be blown away by the thrilling beauty of the surroundings. The walk starts from here on the trail that runs along a small hydroelectric plant finally enters the Shivapuri Watershed and Wildlife Reserve. Going further on the journey, you will witness the first rural settlement of Nepal, the Mulkharka Settlement mostly inhabited by Tamang people. The walk from here traverses through the beauty of the oak and rhododendron forests which finally leads you to Chisopani. The magnificence of the high Himalayan Peaks like Mt. Manaslu, Ganesh Himal, Langtang, Shishapangma, Gaurishankar, and much more is a treat to witness.

    Day 2

    Trek from ChisoPani to Talamarang (960 m)

    The journey today begins with a downhill trek crossing through the authentic rural Nepal where you will get to see terraced farmlands, villages, local farmers, and farming animals all the way till you reach your first stop at Pati Bhanjyang. The Pati Bhanjyang is a cute little village that is enveloped in greenery and the zinc rooftops of their houses hint that they still believe in the traditional lifestyle. After your shortstop, you will take the ascending trail leading out of Pati Bhanjyang towards Gosaikunda cutting through the terraced lands and villages and finally reach Thakani.

    The small village of Thakani is blessed with gorgeous views of ranges like Langtang Himal, Dorje Lapka, and some other surrounding peaks. Here, you will get the chance to witness a whole different culture and community before you set and ready to take on the rough trail ahead to Talamarang. Though the trail runs over ridges, the appealing sights of the green hills and spectacular mountains make your journey a memorable experience. As you enter the last part of the walk, the steep descent is crafted to tire you from the core, we approach it with great cautiousness and as you enter the Talamarang, we bet you will just want to sit back and relax. Talamarang is a mixed community to be precise as people of different cultures reside here. You can also see a motorable road that connects to Kathmandu via Timbu and Melamchi Pul Bazaar.

    Day 3

    Trek from Talamarang to Timbu.

    The Timbu Village is a reflection of the authentic mountain culture and this Sherpa Village is certainly a thing to look out for in the journey. The abundance of the Sherpa and Tamang people going ahead with their daily chores is a sight you get to witness and cherish. Follow the motorable road out of Talamarang and from there you get to walk on the raw trail giving you deeper delves into the culture of the local villagers. You will also cross a couple of villages like Mahankal and Chanaute along your way to Timbu. Feel the cool breeze as you go past these villages over the flat path and take in all the beauty nature is offering. If you plan to take this trail in October, then you get to see the farmers harvesting rice in their merry behaviour.

    Day 4

    Trek from Timbu to Tarkeghyang

    Tarkeghyang is among the prettiest of the Sherpa villages, dotted with beautiful ancient monasteries and supreme green sights of nature. Moreover, Tarkeghyang is originally known as Helambu and the name is originated from the Hemlu Caste. The real inhabitants or the Sherpa People actually belongs to the Hemlu Caste. Besides the culture of the village, the trail you walk on today is equally enthralling. Witness the terraced lands and forests as you walk on the ascending journey bypassing many small settlements.

    Day 5

    Trek from Tarkeghyang to Shermathang

    The fifth day marks the easiest day of the whole journey as most part of the walk is on flatlands. Enjoy the brilliance of the surroundings, beautiful forests, small streams, vast green lands, all account for the raw beauty of nature. After relaxing and refreshing 5-hours of walk, as you reach the Shermathang Village, the surreal setting of the village will amaze you as a whole. As you look up to the northern face, the sights of the Jugal Himal range will tempt. We promise you a great time in this pretty Sherpa Village as you can also visit the monasteries located in the village. At the highest point of the village, you get to see a Buddhist Monastery.

    Day 6

    Trek from Shermathang to Melamchi Pul Bazar

    Another pleasant walk is to Melamchi Pul Bazar where you get to socialize and mix with the locals along the way. Though the majority of the village is dominated by the Sherpa Culture, you will see a lot of people of other ethnicities. The walk is blessed with the splendour of the mountain views while the descending trail passes through the meadows and cultivated fields. Undoubtedly, a fine a trekking experience.

    Day 7

    Trek from Melamchi Pul Bazar to Nagarkot

    While you are nearing the end of the journey, the concluding half becomes more enticing than ever. Though you begin the half an hour journey in a local bus to Bahunepati, we plan the further journey in the most thrilling way. Brace yourselves for a daunting uphill trek on the steep ascent and as you walk to savor the sights of the terraced lands and distant settlements. Moreover, you will also get to see a few forests making your journey even more memorable. Witness the locals doing their daily chores and as you cover the steep trail till Kartike Village, you will enjoy the last part of the walk until Nagarkot.

    Now, we planned this destination to present you with some exclusive sights of this country. At an elevation of 2211m, Nagarkot is a fascinating place to witness some ecstatic views of the mountains. Sights like of Annapurna, Dorje Lakpa, Gauri Shankar, Langtang and many other ranges make this an outstanding place to watch the sunrise. Experience the spectacular view of the mountains changing its colour as the sun begins to go up in the sky. Have the most of the final day of the trek.

    Day 8

    Trek from Nagarkot to Changunarayan and Kathmandu

    The first part of the trek to Changunarayan takes around three and half hours and it is another 90 minutes of a drive back to the capital, Kathmandu. Experience the thrill of walking along a ridge with views of the Changunarayan Temple, Sankhu Village, and Bhaktapur Village. This temple has a lot of rich history associated with it and beautifully decorated with sculptures and carvings. Being situated at the end of a long ridge which finally leads to a valley, this temple is said to be built by King Hari Datta Varma at around 322 AD. Rediscover your soul from within in this oldest temple of the valley before finally boarding the vehicle back to Kathmandu.

    Nepal is safe....and beautiful!!

    Traveled to Nepal for 10 days in December. We did 7days of trekking to Helambu, Chisopani and Nagarkot and the rest in Kathmandu and Thamel area. We had an amazing time with the friendliest and warmest of guides. Huge thanks to Raj for all his hard work accommodating every request we had...... and to BK our trekking guide for keeping us on the right track!!!.......and to Madhav, our cultural guide who was very insightful and a great company. All of them made our trip unforgettable and went above and beyond for us in every way possible. We can't wait to go back to beautiful Nepal and couldn't recommend them enough to anyone considering visiting Nepal for what ever the reason.
