The route begins at the town of Arughat, passing through bamboo forests and Gurung villages in the narrow Buri Gandaki gorge. After travelling through Lho village, trekkers will enter the Nupri region, inhabited primarily by Tibetan immigrants. The colourful prayer flags, mani walls and monasteries seen here are iconic images of Tibetan culture and religious practice. Travellers can gain a unique, first-hand perspective on the lifestyles of this respected population.
After passing through Samdo village, travellers will approach the Larkya La pass. Crossing this high Himalayan pass is a challenging, day-long endeavour, yet it remains easily surmountable by hikers who are in good physical shape but may not have previous mountaineering experience.
The vistas at Larkya La are stunning, featuring unobstructed views of Himal Chuli, Manaslu, Cheo Himal and the Himlung Himal mountains.

- What is the required budget for a trip to Nepal?
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.

Is Asia open for tourists?
Despite the initial fears of the Covid-19 pandemic, most Asian countries have managed to mitigate its effects. As such, many popular destinations throughout the continent are currently open for travelers with precautionary measures like mandatory vaccinations. A few countries, however, require newly arrived travelers to spend a couple of days in quarantine.
As of February 2022, countries like Thailand, Laos, and Cambodia are officially open for vaccinated tourists without the need for quarantine. Meanwhile, India and Indonesia are two of the countries that may require you to quarantine for up to a week on arrival. However, Japan, Vietnam, and Myanmar are yet to open their doors to visitors.
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.
