The trek starts from Sundarijal, located on the eastern side of the Kathmandu Valley, and continues via Shivapuri National Park, Chisopani, Kutumsang, Thadepati and Sermathang before coming to an end in Melamchi Pul Bazaar in the Helambu region.

This is a relatively low-altitude trek along a less busy route through temperate forests, green valleys, lush fields and Tamang and Sherpa villages. You will see Langtang, Manaslu, Ganesh Himal, Rolwaling and Gauri Shankar mountains along the route.

David's review for another Icicles Adventure Treks and Tours Pvt Ltd tour
“We did the Everest base camp trek and made a circuit through Gokyo Lakes. Amazing landscapes. Every twist and turn opened into spectacular scenery. The Khumbu is an incredible region, and the people are equally fantastic. You must do this trek.”

QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS Find answers to the most frequently asked questions about this tour.
  • How much money do I need to bring with me?

    Your personal budget obviously depends on your spending habits and what is included in your trip cost. If accommodation is included, but meals are not, we would suggest that you bring around 30 USD per day per person for meals. Having a hot shower or charging your device sometimes costs extra. There are also sometimes small crafts/souvenirs to buy along the trekking route which you may want to bring extra money for. Also, consider whether you would be staying in Kathmandu or Pokhara before or after your trek.

  • Is quarantine in Nepal in effect for arriving visitors?

    In response to the current Covid situation, rules for arriving visitors may change frequently and sometimes without notice. Please check the government travel pages and advisories of your home country and the official website of the Nepal Tourism board here.

  • What happens if someone gets altitude sickness, does the rest of the group continue on?

    It depends on the situation. Sometimes, altitude sickness can be treated and the trekker may wish to continue. If not, the rest of the group can continue on if they want and the sick person can descend.

  • How does it work with a porter?

    Generally, the porter will pick up the baggage in the morning and drop it at the hotel in the evening. You will not always be walking with your porter or have access to your bag during the day, while trekking. 

  • Is a visa on arrival available?

    Typically, yes. However, in response to the current Covid situation, rules for arriving visitors may change frequently and sometimes without notice. It may be necessary to obtain a tourist visa in your own country before travel. For updated information on visas, please check the Nepal Tourism Board and the Government of Nepal Immigration websites.
