Our trip starts from Kathmandu. First, we round off Kathmandu valley by visiting some of the historically important heritages and we take a flight to Tumlingtar. We start our first trek from here and reach Marduna. Even though, trail starts to get exciting and usual as we walk further and further. Therefore when we reach Dobani, we can already sense isolation and take a rocky trek to Salpa Phedi. The view from here is great and the hospitality of the villagers are amazing. We trek to Guranse and along the way, pass rhododendron forest and get to see colorful grassy lands and meadows. From Guranse, it is all the way to Sanam – in this trail we have to cross Salpa La Pass at 3350 and cross rhododendron forest.However, trek is steep from Sanal and we have to cross bridges to reach Bung – a tiny Rai Village. We cross Pangum La pass and experience a great view of Mera peak as we come closer to Painya. Although from Painya, we trek to Lukla and leave isolated villages’ village.
