Trekking In Less Explored Regions

 

 

Nepal is the perfect place to get off the beaten track and participate in Indigenous treks and village tourism, supporting community. By choosing this, both the trekkers and locals benefit immensely. These programs have been developed with all in mind and are highly sustainable, maximising the benefits to the local community and rural economy.

CAMPING OFF THE BEATEN TRACK

Camping and trekking in Nepal’s remote regions can require some extra planning or organisation. Sherpa Tours will help in all aspects of planning to ensure an enjoyable experience on your trip. We will arrange the local assistance needed for the trip, equipment/tent hire and permits that are required for some areas. Some of the remote areas we can take you are;

  • Kanchenjunga - The third highest mountain located on the Indian boarder. It is a strenuous trek up to the base camp. We can arrange transfers from Kathmandu to the start of this trek.

  • Dolpa - Visit the remote Land of Bon also known as Upper Dolpa. Strong Tibetan influences are prominent in this region. Lower Dolpa can be reached by plane.

  • Narr-Phu Valley - Recommended for camping style treks, taking around 9 days from Koto to Ngawal. The Tibetan valley is just north of the Annapurna circuit and was only opened to visitors in 2002.

  • Guerrilla Trek - A recently opened trail in the Himalayan region. Here you will see the treks and hideouts used by the guerrillas during the 1996-2006 conflict. This peaceful walk passes lush valley and dramatic waterfalls and is quite different to more commercialised trails. You will explore astonishing rural landscape and unique culture full of mystique.

  • Indigenous Peoples Trail - This is a first of its kind in Nepal. This trek is through relatively low elevation areas (3,000m or below) and along the way you will encounter many of the ethnic groups and cultures of Nepal.  Stretching from Annapurna and Dhaulagiri in the West to Numburchuili and Kanchenjunga in the East, exposing trekkers to the most culturally diverse regions of Nepal. It provides stunning natural beauty and marvellous viewpoints along the way.

 

TEA-HOUSES

Lodging at tea-houses is a great alternative to camping.

  • Manaslu - Manaslu has become one of Nepal’s newest tea-house treks with the construction of a lodge below the Larkya La pass. The unspoilt trails pass through remote villages and over a wild pass to circuit the 8,000m high mountain. Sherpa Tours will arrange the necessary permits and guides that are required to explore the extremely interesting Tsum Valley and Manalsu area.

  • Makalu - The Makalu base camp can now be reached using tea-house accommodations. This remote and rarely visited trek is considered to be quite tough and for serious trekkers. Here you will have incredible views all to yourself and share the company of wildlife.
