Trekking in Other Areas of Nepal

Dhaulagiri

Dhaulagiri (8,167 metres) is the seventh highest mountain in the world. It forms the eastern anchor of the Dhaulagiri Himal, a subrange of the Himalaya in the Dhawalagiri Zone of north central Nepal. It lies northwest of Pokhara, an important regional town and tourist center. Across the deep gorge of the Kali Gandaki to the east lies the Annapurna Himal, home to Annapurna I,
one of the other eight-thousanders. Dhaulagiri means "White Mountain".
In terms of rise above local terrain, Dhaulagiri is, in fact, almost unparalleled in the world. For example, it rises 7000 m over the Kali Gandaki gorge to the southeast in about 30km of horizontal distance. The Kali Gandaki is especially dramatic since Dhaulagiri and Annapurna both stand near the river, giving a unique example of two Eight-thousanders facing each other over a deep valley.
The South and West faces of Dhaulagiri both feature massive drops;
each rises over 4000 meters from its base, and each has been the site of epic climbs.
Among the subsidiary peaks in the range, Gurja Himal also boasts a large, precipitous drop on its south face.
We have the following programmes for Dhaulagiri region:

Manaslu

Manaslu (also known as Kutang), 8,156 metres (26,759 ft), is the eighth highest mountain in the world,
located in the Mansiri Himal, part of the Nepalese Himalayas. Manaslu is derived from the Sanskrit word Manasa and is translated as "Mountain of the Self".
Manaslu is the highest peak in the Lamjung district and is located about forty miles east of Annapurna, the tenth highest mountain.
The mountain's long ridges and valley glaciers offer feasible approaches from all directions, and culminate in a peak that towers steeply
above its surrounding landscape, and is a dominant feature when viewed from afar.
Manaslu was first climbed on May 9, 1956 by Toshio Imanishi and Gyalzen Norbu, members of a Japanese expedition.

the treasures representing the five repositories of God, which are gold, silver, gems, grain, and holy books. Kangchenjunga is also called
Sewa Lungma in the local Limbu language and is considered sacred in the Kirant religion.

is attractive both scenically and culturally. The area is the inhabitant of various rare and endangered species of wildlife and plants diversity, including several herbal plants

Dolpo (Upper)

Upper Dolpo trekking is remote hidden trekking destination in Nepal where Nepal's most tranquil and natural beauty is still unexplored. Dolpo is located inside the Shy - Phoksundo National Park of mid-western Nepal, behind the Dhaulagiri massif, towards the Tibetan Plateau. Dolpo Trekking/Trekking in Dolpo region is an experience not easily forgotten. As it is in the isolated part of Nepal, there the nature seems to have remained exactly the same as it was first created- unharmed and unaltered. Undisturbed and preserved for centuries now. Blue sheep, leopards and other interesting Himalayan animals are still there in that region. Dolpo region trekking is the natural embodiment of high passes, rare flora and fauna, and sweeping vistas, which is enriched by the traditional Tibetan cultural heritage. To trek on Dolpo region is quite an experience of life. The view of Kanjiroba peak, Phoksumdo Lake, and the Dhauligiri massif is one of the most rewarding moments of the upper dolpa trekking. We organize the following Trekking programmes for Upper Dolpo region :

Round Upper Dolpo Trek

Humla

Humla District is a part of Karnali Zone. Which is one of the seventy-seven districts of Nepal.
The district, with Simikot as its district headquarters, covers an area of 5,655km˛
The Northern part of Humla District is inhabited by Buddhists whereas in the Southern part mostly Hindus are living.
Life for the Humli people is challenging, the agricultural season in these high mountain valleys being short and the winters are long and severe,
with most of the population living by subsistence farming amid the region’s difficult, though extraordinarily beautiful and dramatic terrain.
This mountain landscape of high peaks, cut through by green valleys, turbulent rivers and forests of rhododendrons teeming with wildlife,
and featuring Hindu and Buddhist temples, shrines and religious sacred places, make trekking in the region an extremely rewarding and rejuvenating experience.
It also has a route to Tibet, mostly used for Manasarovar Kailash pilgrimage.
We organize Trekking programmes in Humla and also organize Kailash Manasarovar Pilgrimage.
We also have other trekking itineraries.
