trekking

Trekking is a journey on foot changing places each day. Basically Trekking means enjoying the exterior landscape or the alfresco of the scenery, being out of the door- in the  mountain areas, in the rural places or on the foothills of the mountains including some high passes excluding the mountain climbing. Trekking is obviously a journey on foot, leading through the trails. Beside, it is not only observing the scenery it is a way of learning the different aspects of life in the mountain side. Country life! Nepal itself is hilly and mountainous topographically. We have very less flat land which is only the Terai. And Nepal is famous for its abiding Himalaya where perennial snow glits. A magnet to the hungry eyes who are fascinated by the view. So you are attracted too which is the main attraction and why Nepal is famous for Trekking. So its also learning the way of life beliefs and practices of peoples. That is the reason why travelling makes you or gives you an opportunity to learn and to see the country. Your first hand experience being there will help you to witness the different rituals and rites according to different ethnic groups, the costumes and so on. Please let us know how you want us to help you? We are dedicated to the service you require.

Some says when there was war in tibet they use those caves to hide them. Some said to protect from the strong wind those cave houses were better than buildings. After crossing sloppy flat pasture land we will reach the edge. From where we could see lo manthang, Chooser and migrated villages from Sam dzong. It is wide and barren. Topography is strange very different from green hills. On the south if weather is clear we can see Annapurna and Nilgiri in the horizon. From this edge within 40 minutes we will reach to Lomanthang. Ancient walled City. Now there are houses adjoined to the ancient wall also. In few places that old wall was opened creating gates. We can walk inside the wall through narrow alleys. But the main palace is not allowed to visit. If rules are changed or the palace will be finished repairing. We are now in the  ancient walled city which was established by Mustang King in 1380, by Ame Pal. Last king Jigme perbal Bista, And his surviving Prince is the direct descendent of Ame Pal.

Even the language is known as Lowa. Within 2.5 hours we will reach Chooser. There is an entry ticket to visit several storied ancient caves and few other caves we would be allowed to visit. Foreigners have to buy a 1000 rupees ticket per person.we can not guarantee about the changes of entry fee  Within that ticket 4 different caves are permitted to visit. That is for the conservation of the caves. We can have our Lunch in this village either before visiting caves or after visiting caves. Then walk back to Lomanthang.

There are two options: one is to follow the same way back to Tsarang and take a right turn crossing a pass to descend down to Ghemi. On this side we have to follow the rough road or jeep track. Another option is to follow right from lo manthang heading to Ghyar Gompa and continue down to Dhakmar and to join to Ghemi. We can decide which way to follow. Anyway our night stay would be in Ghemi. When we have already passed through Ghyaar Gompa from Dhakmar. Different route would be interesting.

Then use jeep to return back to Kagbeni to exit from restricted area. This is the ending day of 10 days permit. If we exceed the limitation, we need to pay an additional amount day wise. So reaching to Kagbeni will do night stay there    #PS: (optional note) If you want to visit Muktinath Temple also the option could be we can stay overnight in Tetang village and from Tetang climbing a small pass we can get into Muktinath. In this case if that limited permit of 10 days exceeds the limit additional fee of remaining days  should be submitted to immigration office or related bodies of government. And from Muktinath we can catch a straight bus to Pokhara also or private jeep could be arranged or if you would like to fly back we can schedule or reschedule the tickets according to the availability.                                       

Day12: Kagbeni to Jomsom 
After we leave Kagbeni, this part goes from Kagbeni to Jomsom as I mentioned earlier also. We have to follow the road and compared to upper side traffic would be more in this section of the road. So we can use the jeep to return Doing additional visits to Muktinath Temple and blue natural flame. Where there are 108 spouts hindu people or devotees take bath in it and dip in the pond right in front of the temple. Then back down to Kagbeni collect the luggage back or we can put it in the jeep before leaving Kagbeni. Then go to Jomsom and stay the night here waiting for the flight back to Pokhara.

Day13: Jomsom to Pokhara
