Trip Detail

This newly explored off the beaten trekking destination in eastern, Nepal offers some of the most spectacular Himalayan landscapes along with cultural diversity as the trekking route is home to different ethnic groups like the Limbus, Sherpas, Rai, Gurung, Magars, Newars and Tamangs. While on this trek, trekkers can explore the traditional farming practices, see different birds and wildlife species, including the endangered snow leopard and red panda if lucky enough.

The trek route passes through Kanchenjunga Conservation Area (KCA) and Makalu Barun National Park in the eastern Himalaya giving trekkers an opportunity to explore these two Nepal’s best preserved and protected areas. The trekking trail finally leads the Lumba Sumba pass (5200 m) passing through different climatic zones. The scenery along the trek route encompasses dense temperate and sub-tropical forests, low river valleys, rocky outcrops, alpine grass lands, and high snow capped peaks. Besides natural beauty, trekkers can also explore cultural heritages like monasteries, chortens, temples and prayer walls during the trek.

Dear Chhiring,
I had a chance to experience first hand professionalism, courtesy and dedication of you and your team to achieve set goals through this journey. Twice I came to Nepal and had a chance to experience 2 routes once to Everest Base Camp directly and another one going through Gokyo lakes, Chola Pass and Base camp . This last time I did with my son so it was even more rewarding. I was very touched by the way you handled all procedures from the time we landed in Kathmandu, the trek itself and accommodations throughout the trek , Kathmandu sightseeing and the final drop to airport. We always felt safe and you ensured we ate the right food to avoid any issues. Under all circumstances I would recommend you and your tour and I am contemplating doing more treks with you in next future. Thank you Chhiring and Rinji
