Almost A Virgin Trail
The trail was first explored only quite recently, and so, there aren’t many hotels or tea houses along the route. The trekkers stay in the houses of the locals throughout the trip.
Also, most places in and around the trail aren’t visited by many tourists, so the route is pretty much virgin. There isn’t any rush or flooding tourists here, so trekking can be done with ease, and there’s enough space for everyone. This is a moderate level trek, and so, it’s fit for people of all age groups.
Attractions In Gorkha
During the trek, the tourists get to spend an entire day in Gorkha. The place is one of the richest ones in Nepal when it comes to historical and natural heritages.
Here, they can take an excursion to places such as the Gorkha Palace, Gorakhnath Cave and Gorkha Museum. Each one of them have their own significance, and is ranked among the most visited tourist sites in the country.
Views Of The Mountains
Throughout the trek, you’ll come across numerous view points and villages. These spots offer you the most amazing view of the mountains in the Manaslu, and as well as the surrounding regions.
Few of the peaks that you’ll be able to view are Mt. Annapurna, Mt. Machhapuchhre, Mt. Ganesh and Mt. Manaslu. The higher you go on the route, the better and more up-close the view gets.
Settlements On Route
Throughout the trek, you’ll come across settlement areas like Sirandada, Barpak, Laprak, Gyampesal, Nambai Kharka, and so on. In and around these villages, the trekkers will come across numerous attractions like Sita Cave, Dudh Pokhari, Bageshwori Mahadev Temple, Nage Pokhari, numerous scenic tea gardens, and so on. Exploring them adds further value to this fun filled experience.
Culture And Religion
The trekkers come across the cultures and traditions, followed by the friendly locals, during their journey. Unlike most trekking routes in the country, majority of people living in the villages here are Hindus.
So, if their visit happens to be around some festive season, they can get to become a part of the villagers’ celebration. Certain places like Sita Cave and Darche Danda have religious significance among Hindu and Gurung communities respectively.
