This program will give you the opportunity to experience the mountains and cultures that very few outsiders get to see. During this trek, we will be walking through different villages, eating the region’s food and staying at local houses. This program will give you a very different experience than a regular trek will! If you are more interested in experiencing Nepali culture up close, then this village trek is for you! The routes are designed to pass through a number of small villages that rarely (if ever!) get visited by tourists. We will meander among rice fields, stay will locals, eat authentic food and get to observe the village life up-close. Moreover, we will meet farmers, visit local schools and oh, right! – trek up and down at times too! After all, this is Nepal!
