Trekking in Nepal


ay 1. Arriving in Kathmandu, transfer to Hotel, briefing about trek, equipment check
Day   2: Kathmandu - Beni 830m (9 hours by bus)
Day   3: Beni to Takam 1665m (6hours)
From the Myagdi district headquarter you follow a gravel road for 24km to 
Darbang and start walking. Takam is a three hour walk away with Gurjal 
Himal towering overhead.
Day   4: Takam to Lamsung 2250m (6 hours)
This is where the scenery starts getting even more dramatic. This is what 
Nepal used to be like before the trekkers got here. Locals are not used to 
foreigners and have a lot of stories to tell about the war.
Day   5: Lamsung to Gurjaghat 3020m (7 hours)
Climb through dense pine forests, with musk deer darting in the 
undergrowth. The meadows on the ridge offer 180 degree views of 
Dhaulagiri the entire range up to Churen Himal in the west.
Day   6: Gurjaghat to Dhorpatan 2860m (5 hours)
You cross over from Myagdi to Baglung and into the former Tibetan 
refugee camp which was  serviced by an airfield built by the Swiss in the 
1950s. This is also the entrance to Dhorpatan, a Hunting Reserve, where 
you can spot mountain goats and blue sheeps(Bharal).
Day   7: Dhorpatan to Nisi Dhor (5 hours)
This is a paradise for birds. Watch danphes pheasants, and other migratory 
species that you have seen only in bird guides. Hard to imagine that  
people fought a war here. There are cow sheds in the monsoon, but in the  
winter these high pastures are deserted.
Day   8: Nisi Dhor to Tallo Sera(7 hours)
Cross over from Baglung to Rukum into Magar country and enter the 
fromer Maoist base area. There are dense forests all the way, so it must 
have been easy to hide here from the helicopter patrols. The villages are 
picturesque and there is always some kind of Magar festival going on.
Day   9: Tallo Sera to Rujhikhola(6 hours)
Walk to Lukum in Rukum, a village populated only by Magars and 
Dalits(low cast). This is about as medieval as it gets in Nepal nowadays. 
Day   10: Rujhikhola to Thabang(5 hours)
Thabang is the cradle of the Maoist revolution. It was damaged in army 
attacks and parts of the town were flattened by ‘tora bora’ mortar shells 
dropped from helicopters. There has been some development of 
infrastructure after the war ended, and the people are eager and friendly.
Day 11: Thabang to Jaljale(5 hours)
The highest point in Jaljale is Dharampani (3900m) and there is a great 
view from Apisaipal in the west to Dhaulagiri in the east. 
Day 12: Jajala to Jelbang(6 hours)
Now we’re moving down from the high mountains and the village are    
ethnically mixed.
Day 13: Jelbang to Suliochaur(6 hours)
This is where we finally get to Rolpa and the roadhead. Rolpa was also a 
rebel base area and for many of the ten years of war under total Maoist 
control. You can eat at one of the many commune restaurants run by 
Maoist cooperative, where staff are relatives of those who were killed in the
