We have fully supported experts trekking team with all gear and food stuffs while on this camping treks in the Himalaya.
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 and then the next day we cross the huge glacier of Rani and Gorkha peaks with stunning vista below the tree line, which is rarely seen in the Himalaya.
Having lost into the wilderness for several days we reach to Nyak a village on the ridge far above the Budigandaki valley. The trail down to the valley in marginal conditions, indeed can be tiring but once you join on main trail you feel lot more comfortable in walking. We trek down all the way to the Budigandaki river bank from where we board our bus drive to Kathmandu.
