This trek is part of a national development effort to empower poor, rural communities. The trail offers cultural highlights of one of the indigenous communities of Nepa who are one of the more traditional and less known ethnic groups. They reside very close to nature and seem similar to the Tamang caste yet they have their own language and way of living.

This area offers many different sightseeing experiences and you’ll be staying in homestays in many beautiful places in – Jungle with panoramic views of superb mountain ranges, flatlands, green forests.

The best time for this trek is February – June, September – November when you are more likely to enjoy their primitive culture, their festivals, norms and, values. However, July & August is okay and trekking can be done but the visibility is not very clear due to rain.
