Description

Beautifully settled villages, warm and welcoming people, unique culture and traditions, traditional art and craftsmanship, and breathtaking views of the snowy mountains are the highlights of this Laprak and Dharche Hill trek.

Due to the new trekking routes, the number of tourists is decreasing in this region. This is a shame because the people here are very friendly and give a great welcome to visitors.
