Nepal Middle Hills Trek – From Overview

Experience the 'real Nepal'. Off-the-beaten-track and with a mix of cultural highlights and panoramic mountain views

South of the Makalu Barun National Park and defined by two great rivers; the Arun to the east and the Dudh Kosi to the west, is a beautiful and unspoiled ‘Middle Hills’ region rarely visited by trekking groups. Starting out from the airstrip at Tumlingtar, this exciting trekking holiday, which we are running as a reconnaissance for the first departure in spring 2020, will take us through a landscape dominated at lower levels by picturesque terraced farmland and by traditional villages home to a number of Nepal’s ethnic groups. Heading east to west, this is a linear trek, a logical journey across the grain of the country with lots of ascent and descent; the so-called 'Nepali undulation'. Higher up and for the majority of the trek we find ourselves amongst rugged ridge and valley scenery with far-reaching views to the snow-capped peaks of the Nepal Himalaya, including Kangchenjunga, Makalu and Mount Everest itself. We follow interconnected ridges, camp in remote forest clearings and trek by way of high passes to accessible viewpoints such as Ghyang Peak (3600m). Flying back to Kathmandu, we have included a day to enjoy the Nepalese capital. This is a perfect trekking holiday for those looking to experience the ‘real Nepal’ whether you are a first time or regular visitor to this most charming of Himalayan countries.
