This is me Krishna P from Kathmandu and would like to guide you people in one of the most iconic, cultural & beautiful scenery in Nepal under foothills of Himalayas. Mountains have been fascinating me since my childhood. Growing up in the foothills of the Himalayas, I have travelled & explored more than 500 miles of different trekking/hiking trails throughout Nepal on foot. I too have a decade long experience in leading, managing & arranging trekking/hiking and other leisure activities here in Nepal.

Trip Itinerary

Kathmandu

Day 1-2
Day 1 (Kathmandu, Altitude: 1320 mtrs) You will arrive Kathmandu City via Tribhuvan International Airport from your home country. After arrival to Kathmandu, we shall pick you up and arrange your accommodation accordingly. Later in the evening, we will have a welcome session with drinks to know each other & fellow trip mates.

Sing Gompa

Day 3-4
Day 3 (Dhunche-Sing Gompa) Altitude-3000 mtrs We will start our first day trek after our breakfast in Dhunche and will ascent towards Deurali(2500 mtrs) where it will take roughly about 2-3 hour. It is a small village on the way to Sing Gompa with a few tea houses. Through this beautiful trail, we pas through streamlets and cascades and reach Dhimsa(3000 mtrs) after Deurali. The climb up to Dhimsa is slightly difficult, as the trail goes uphill through beautiful pine forests. After crossing steep uphill sections and around 6 hours of walk, we will finally reach Sing Gompa(3200m). The small settlement also known a Chandanbari in local language is located at the lap of a pine forest.
4

Gosainkunda

Day 4-5
Day 4 (Sing Gompa- Gosainkunda Lake) Altitude- 4380 mtrs After our hearty breakfast early in the morning at Chandan Bari, we will hike uphill up to Gosainkunda(4380m). Today the hiking will be comparatively more difficult than yesterday because we have to gain higher altitude. So acclimatization is most necessary. The trail gradually ascends up from the beginning so we will have to walk through barren hills and encounter cold breeze. So, make sure you have warm clothes to keep you fine in such a cold environment. After reaching Gosainkunda we will have the view of sunset and overnight in lakeside.

Ghatte Khola

Day 5-6
Day 5 (Gosainkunda- Ghatte Khola)-Altitude 2200 mtrs We will wake up early morning for sunrise view and explore the alpine freshwater lake Gosainkunda. Followed by warm breakfast we will descend back to Ghatte Khola where the lunch will be provided during trek at Chandanbari. Since we will be descending, hiking will be a bit easier and fun. We will also spot different protected birds in the trail like Wood Snipe, Snow Partridge, Tibetan Snow Cock, etc.

Day 6( Ghatte Khola-Nuwakot Durbar Square) Altitude 900 mtrs Today is the last day where our trek will end. So we will be enjoying it a bit more.
