Come join our Rupinala Pass Trek which is a newly opened trek that goes through some of the loveliest trek routes. Mostly favourable for people with less time to explore Nepal and visit its less travelled trek destinations like Rupinala. Nature and cultural both are uniquely presented to trekkers while they make an attempt to explore this magnificent region. Our 14 days Rupinala Pass trek begins as you land at the Tribhuwan International Airport (TIA) at Kathmandu. At first, you are to have an enriching sightseeing tour around Kathmandu valley which will take you to Boudhanath, Swoyambhunath, Pashupatinath and historical Kathmandu Durbar Square. Afterwards, our trek commences with a drive towards Trishuli Bazar where we shall remain for the overnight. This place has a very huge historical significance for indigenous people living here. From this place onward, we shall march deeper inside the spectacular Manaslu region. Trekkers can observe many scenic villages en-route among which Bumdang village, Satyadevi village, Jharlang and Khading village are the places where we are to stay overnight. Next day, we shall cross Sing-la Pass (2640m)and the grandiose Rupinala Pass (3900m) which can be a very memorable moment for trekkers passing through these passes. We reach Lapubesi village and then continue heading towards Takukot village via Singla and Barpak villages. We are now going to visit the ancient historical place of Gorkha which is largely popular for being the hometown of Late King Prithvi Narayan Shah who had successfully united Nepal. Lastly, after that, we will take a 5-hour long drive back to Kathmandu city. During our ordeal, trekkers can see Mt. Manaslu (8163m) and Himal Chuli (7893m) along with other Himalayan mountains which can be a very rewarding moment for the trekkers. Early March to end of May and early September to end of November is widely considered to be the most pleasurable time to do this particular trek. Contact, Himalayan Holyland Treks & Expedition now to make your visit to some of the most historically ancient towns of Nepal.
