Above the guesthouse at Kalinchok – next to the temple on the mountain ridge a one hour hike up – runs an old trade route. It’s been used for centuries by merchants between Nepal and Tibet. Just a narrow trail, it zig-zags along the ridge all the way into the mountains of the northern neighbor. Steep slopes on the southern side; seemingly endless pinewood on the northern side; as well as deer, eagles and the Nepalese pheasant – those are among the ingredients making this trek breathtaking. Few hike the trail, so you’ll likely have it alone, save the random local on the way between villages. The mountain view on a clear day is among the best. Want to try it? Contact us for more info!
