The trek starts with a scenic flight to Phaplu, a small town in Nepal's Solukhumbu district. From there, the hike follows a path that leads to Dudhkunda Lake, which translates to "milky lake" in Nepali. The  Dudhkunda Lake is located at the base of Mount Numbur, also known as Shorong Yul Lha, which is considered the "Preserver of Solukhumbu Region." The Dudhkunda Lake is of great religious significance to Buddhist and Hindu devotees, who believe that taking a dip in the lake's holy waters will wash away all sins and fulfill wishes.

The path is also relatively less traveled than other popular trekking routes in the region, providing trekkers with a more peaceful and natural experience.

Trekkers may encounter rare animals such as the elusive snow leopard, Himalayan thar, and musk deer.

Best time to travel to Nepal: 


Nepal is a country of differences with various landscapes, including towering mountain ranges, lush forests, and a vibrant cultural heritage. The best time to travel to Nepal depends on your preferences and the type of excursions or events you intend to participate in. Generally, Nepal has four distinct seasons, each with unique charms and challenges.

Autumn Season: September to November is Nepal's best time for trekking and outdoor activities. Clear skies, pleasant temperatures, and festivals like Dashain Tihar and Chhat make this period ideal for experiencing Nepali culture.

Trekking involves walking long distances, sometimes for hours daily, over different terrain and at high altitudes.

Some places in Nepal require a separate permit to visit. Our TIMS card and Permit fee section provides more details.

We recommend a policy of at least USD 100,000 coverage to provide financial security in case of unexpected events such as altitude sickness or accidents.

Altitude Sickness and Acclimatisation:


Altitude sickness is common among hikers in Nepal's Himalayan Region. It happens when the body doesn't get enough oxygen at higher elevations, causing headaches and dizziness. Acclimatization is essential to prevent this. It means gradually getting used to higher altitudes by resting, drinking fluids, and ascending slowly. Spending an extra day at lower elevations before going higher is the best way to avoid altitude sickness. Hydration is the main issue during trekking to prevent dehydration, which can worsen altitude sickness. Drinking plenty of water, tea, and soup can help. Trekkers can also take medicines like acetazolamide or dexamethasone to relieve symptoms, but it's best to consult a doctor first. Proper acclimatization techniques, like "climb high, sleep low," and staying hydrated, can reduce the risk of altitude sickness. Booking with an experienced guide can ensure you get the right advice and help during your trek.

The trail moves up from Japre to a grassland ridge at Bhulbhule. The Everest range is clearly seen from one guesthouse, which has no name. The track splits just beyond Bhulbhule, and you should take the right path up towards Pikey Peak. Before winding around the hillside below Taklung Danda, your trail passes a number of old yak herders' homes and a lengthy "Mani Stone" wall. After leaving the forest, the last portion of the gorgeous, Rhododendron-filled trail takes you to Pikey Peak base camp, which is about two hours away. At 3,640 meters, there is only one lodge, which has a few smelling rooms in a separate structure. However, you could be able to utilize the dining room to relax in the comfort. The ascent to the peak, at 4,065 meters, is not very difficult, but it is best to save the climb until daybreak unless the evening is especially clear.

starting from behind the lodge, the path ascend a gentle climb to Pikey Peak's peak, which is covered in prayer flags. To get to the peak in time for sunrise, you should set out before dawn because the views are stunning there. You will be blessed with views that reach from Annapurna to Kanchenjunga if the weather is clear; they are absolutely spectacular! You descend a ridgeline to Jase Bhanjyang in the north from the summit of Pikey, where a good staff will have breakfast waiting for you. You have a few options for your ascent to Junbesi after leaving Jase Bhanjyang, but we highly suggest you take lovely "Quick and easy trail," which exits the ridge quickly after Jase and falls sharply through gorgeous Pine forest to Taktor approximately 3,007 m. The tea houses were more developed in Taktor, Hera you occasionally encounter other trekkers who fallow the Hillary Path start from Jiri.

On your way to Thupten Choling, a really special site where 800 monks reside in small houses scattered throughout the hill behind the main Gompa, you follow the river once more this morning as it meanders between farms and flowers. After leaving Tibet in the 1960s, His Holiness the late Trulsik Rinpoche founded the monastery. 80 percent of the people who live, eat, and are educated at Thupten Choling are Tibetan refugees. For the many Tibetans who enter Nepal each year, this is one of their first points of contact. Up to 40 nuns enter the monastery each year despite the fact that the majority of refugees move on to India. After here, you continue up the valley for an additional hour to your first camp, where you are finally welcomed by the entire camping group. Up until you get to Taksindu, you will now spend every night in a tent.
