Cultural, ethnic and linguistic diversity to the absolutely splendid panoramic Himalayans, from walking through the lush green hills to crossing the snaking rivers on high suspension bridges, this trek provides just right amount of adventure, thrill, and gratification and bountiful of knowledge and entertainment.

We will enjoy the cultural performances of 6 different ethnic groups, home stay, soft trekking, visiting the ancient temples and monasteries, meditation, walking through beautiful forests widening from Dhaulagiri and Annapurna in the west to Numburchuli and Kanchenjunga in the east, along with the Langtang and Dorje Lakpa range.

Homestay is a special attraction of this trek. Throughout the trek we will be staying at different host families that are trained to prepare hygienic food and treat us like family. The homes we pick for homestay are very typical of a specific culture. We can enjoy the dance and music by men and women dressed in traditional attire. Home stay will allow us to study the culture and the people on a very micro level.

So, sign up for Nepal Eco Adventure’s Indigenous People’s Trekking Trail to experience and witness the vibrant and rich centuries old tradition and lifestyles of the indigenous people of Nepal, amid spectacular setting of beautiful mountains, hills and rivers.
