Trip Itinerary

You will be clarified about the preparations about the journey and if you want, you could also visit our office if you are interested. In the evening, a welcome dinner will be hosted to introduce you to the Nepalese delicacies.

After breakfast we drive to Syabrubesi from Kathmandu which is almost 7 hours drive on rough road. Upon reaching Trishuli bazaar we will have lunch and continue our drive.

Today we have a long yet interesting day with almost 6 hours of walk. We walk up in a steep trail up to Rongga Bhanjyang for about 3 hours and stop for some photography and rest. From Ringa we descend about an hour to reach Goljung where we will take a lunch break. It takes us 3 more hours to reach Gatlang from the lunch place. In the evening we can do a short excursion to the pond named after Lord Shiva’s wife, Parvati.

After breakfast we head up into the trail that goes up to Chilime and takes about 2 hours. After a brief stop at Chilime we cross a suspension bridge and climb another couple of hours before reaching Gonggang village which is our lunch spot for today. After lunch we head towards Tatopani and in a descent pace it talks us little less than 2 hours to reach Tatopani, or the area of hot springs. It is believed that taking a dip in these natural springs helps to get rid of the skin diseases and also the tiredness after a long day walk. Our guide will accompany you to the hot spring. Having a beer while you are in the pond is a luxury in the cold mountains. After the hot spring dinner will be ready and enjoy dinner and plan the next day with your guide.

Our destination for today is Nagthali, which literally means the Snake point.  We start the day after a warm breakfast prepared by our Home stay host and continue our 5 hours walk for today We ascent and descent until Brimdang a small settlement with a monastery. WE continue from here after a brief rest for another 2 hours and reach Nagthali, where you can enjoy the lunch (if you are not hungry on the trail) with the view of the central Himalayan region of Nepal.

After breakfast we start the longest and most tiring day of the trek. We will trek for one and a half hours and take a small break for drinks at Thuman village as we don’t find any more hotels and tea houses until we reach Timure. After a short break we continue till the Bhote Koshi River and after walking for about 4 hours from the river we reach the village of Timure. If you wish to walk more (if your body allows you) we can continue our walk to Rasuwagadi. By the end of the day your tired legs will suggest that yes you have walked more than 8 hours.

Today our destination is one of the most popular Home stay destinations in Nepal. We are heading towards Briddim which takes about 6 hours from Timure We will walk for about 3.5 hours in the opposite direction of the flow of Bhotekoshi and reach Lingling where we stop for Lunch.

Briddim is a scenic village at more than 2200 m with a nice community home stays program and nice Mountain View.
