Indigenous people/ Sailung Trekking
Meet the indigenous people and stay in their homes.
A six hour drive from Kathmandu you find the Dolakha district. This beautiful district is located at the bottom of the Himalaya: hard working farmers, terraced rice fields, pittoresque villages, bright rivers and splendid views on the Eastern Himalaya.
During a trek in this region, you get to know some minorities that live in this area: Tamangs, Gurungs and Chettri people. There is nearly no tourism in this region.
The scenery is hilly but the trails are easy to navigate and you do not rise to high altitude, making this an ideal trek for beginners or families, or just for anyone interested in local culture and the beautiful surroundings.

Please keep in mind that a trek in the Himalayan Mountains requires a flexible and emphatic mind. During your trek you are lacking some of the basic luxuries like electricity and hot showers. Due to weather conditions, health issues, fitness of group members or sudden natural disasters (like landslides, snow storms, earth quakes, flooding...) we may have to change your itinerary. We try to do our best to follow the outlined itinerary of your booked trek, but your safety and well-being stays our primary concern. In case an amendment of your trek is necessary, it is our group leader or head guide who takes this final decision.
You can fill in your remaining days in Nepal with a wide range of activities. Discover some days the jungle in one of the nationals parks in the South of Nepal, go enjoying the shores of Phewa lake in Pokhara or visit the cultural sites in Kathmandu Valley.
