Thick and a wide range of cardamom farms lie along the Limbu Cultural Trail. In addition, we can explore the unique Himalayan flora and fauna, and untouched natural landscapes. Limbu communities in different villages perform cultural dances Dhaan Naach, Chyabrung Naach, and Bijuwa Naach for visitors. This trek provides an opportunity to discover the remote area and experience lifestyle of the village people. Tasting the local tongba (alcoholic beverage) and sukuti (dry meat), interacting with the  friendly people and participating in their regular activities, and hiking along unrefined trails crossing ridge and gully offers some of the best of Himalayan experiences.
