The Middle Hills cover about 65% of Nepal’s total land area and are home to around 45% of the population of the country. This diverse region is the home of the ancient ethnic casts of Nepal; the Rai, Limbu, Magar, Gurung, Tamang & Sherpa people. The climate in the Middle Hills is generally mild year-round and is home to many of Nepal’s most beautiful valleys and lakes. This area also provides exceptional habitat for wildlife, such as leopard, deer, bear, monkeys, butterflies and over four hundred indigenous species of birds.
Starting out from the airstrip at Tumlingtar, this exciting point to point trekking journey connects the Kangchenjunga and Khumbu regions via some of the best and seldom-traveled ridge walking in Nepal. 2020 marks the first year we are offering this brand new, moderate-altitude hiking itinerary, which will take us through a landscape dominated by scattered farming villages, picturesque, terraced farmland, traditional culture and grand views of Nepal’s Himalaya Range.
The Middle Hills Trekking Journey (Camping Trip) is part of our Epic Himalayan Journey Series! These trips are led by one of our experienced trekking guides and represent the gourmet trekking offerings of the great Himalayan Range. In 2020, we are able to arrange this incredible trek starting on any day of the week during the months of late April through May and October through late November for groups of 2 to 10 people.
