Rupinala – less trodden trekking route

From Kathmandu we drive to Barpak a big and beautiful village of Gurung.  An ethnic group many of them have joined on British Gorkha Regiment best known as the Gorkhas. From here we trek to Dharche hill for the superb mountain views. After the view point we follow the ridge and enjoy the great views. We trek along the spectacular mountain foothills onto the ice to the base camp above the tree line. Our trek crew fix the tents for accommodation and cook prepare the delicious meals while you enjoy the dramatic mountain scenery. Crossing the Rupinala pass is demanding but very much rewarding with unspoiled and incomparable views of the Himalayas. We continue our trek towards the Boudha himal base camp. Further more we cross the huge glacier of Rani and Gorkha peaks with stunning vista below the tree line. A wonderful scenery which is rarely seen in the Himalaya.
