Completely unspoiled it includes some of the most varied and rewarding trekking in the kingdom, through an area between the Dorandi Khola and Buri Gandaki. Starting from the old capital of Gorkha, our route climbs atop a hill overlooking the snowy peaks of the Himalaya and where the old royal palace known as Gorkha Durbar towers the bazaar. Descending through terraced fields we pass by Khanchok and we climb across forested area to our highest point at Darchye (3220m): from that place we have a superb panorama of more than twenty high peaks such as Ganesh Himal, Sringi Himal, Buddha Himal, Himalchuli and Manaslu. Our route descends through rhododendron forest and high pastures towards the Soti Khola on the Manaslu circuit route before ending at Arughat. Trekkers carry only day pack and walk at their own pace. Average hiking per day will be 6-7 hrs.
