There are no tourists here. Three days, or as many as you want, in a rural area full of traditional villages where you can share tea with its shy but friendly inhabitants. Terraced fields, subtropical forests and deep valleys, with the bonus of staying in a small, but very comfortable hotel with locally produced organic food.
3 days / 2 nights (minimum recommended)
Local guide English-speaking
Accommodation in countryside hotel
Transfers in private vehicle
Bajthala’s environment is everything that travellers who come to Nepal want to find. An area that largely represents “real” Nepal (there are many “real Nepal”, of course), not “contaminated” by tourism (it is not at all), where we can walk quietly and relax among nature, crops, some grazing buffalo and eagles flying above us. This is the place! With the bonus of staying in a very comfortable hotel, with a homey flavour, in a small village of four houses, with spectacular views of the Himalayas.
If you follow the route we propose, you will discover the reality of a Tibetan refugee camp like Jampaling, where we will have lunch, after crossing the Seti River that passes between rock formations. You will walk through the subtropical jungle and terraced crops, where the locals are busy with their tasks. You can share a tea, a “mui” (type of yogurt) or something else on the porch of a house. You will have a privileged view of the Himalayas from your room balcony. You will cross traditional villages of the Gurung, Magar or Newar ethnic groups mostly. You will visit the small temple of Dhor Barahi Mandir as you leave this place that you will surely remember.
In this program we only present three days: the arrival day, an enjoyable hiking day and the return day. But in reality they can be as many as you want, because from here you have many options:
- You can do the rarely hiked Millennium Trek on a circular route of 5 days in a “homestay”
- It is not necessary to do the full trek either. You can hike to the Millennium Cave and return in two or three days, for example
- You can walk in a couple of days to Pokhara
- Also, in a couple of days cross to Shyanja and travel by road to Pokhara
- You can go down to the feeding vulture point and observe them
- If you can’t walk, we can organize Jeep routes around the area
- If you are MTB fans, you have many kilometers of mountain tracks
- Routes can be made to observe the birds, fauna and flora of the environment. If you are very, very lucky, you may see one of the leopards that roam here.
- It is an ideal place to meditate and do yoga away from everything
- …or just do nothing
So, we invite you to explore this beautiful place, ideal to include it in any travel plan for Nepal.
