ACTIVITY LEVEL

This moderate-to-challenging trekking journey is rated ‘4’ on a scale of 1-5. The trails are generally well-maintained, with a number of rock steps, several suspension bridges, and some steep, narrow sections with exposure. Although we have plenty of time to acclimate, we ascend over  Larkya La (16,690'), thus we need be prepared for alpine trekking conditions. We will be trekking on firm snow and can expect strong sun, wind, and possibly inclement weather while we cross the pass. The amenities on this trek are clean, yet quite basic. If luxury is a priority for you, then this might not be the right adventure. Participants must be seeking a unique, off-beat trek where you gain unique insights into Himalayan communities and cultures. An open-mind and flexibility are required for experiencing this very unique and remote part of Nepal.
