Lower Manaslu, Balcony of Buddha and Ganesh Himal

               Explore the Dharchee Kang Trek

The Lower Manaslu Dharchee Kang Trek is located in the lower Manaslu region, at an altitude of 3200m. It is a relatively new and less-traveled trek, making it a great option for those seeking a more off-the-beaten-path experience. On this trek, there are no tea houses along the route, but you can stay in local homestays or arrange a camping trip.
During the trek, you'll encounter picturesque villages, rolling hills, lush forests, rivers, and charming bridges. The journey starts from Gorkha Bazaar, passing through Daurali Dada and traditional villages with beautiful rice fields. After descending through terraced crops and reaching the village of Thalogau, we'll ascend through a dense forest path to reach the highlight of the trip, Dharchee Kang.

Dharchee Kang is the highest point of the trek and offers breathtaking views of majestic mountains, including Machhapuchhre, the Annapurna massif, the Buddha Himal range, and the Shiringi Himal range in the west-north part. You can also see the Ganesh Himal range, Chamar Himal of the Tsum Valley, Langtang Himal in the northeast, and get a lower view of the Gorkha Valley.

Continuing the trek, we'll pass through Sambe Kharka, Nambe Kharka, and Laprak, a new settlement village (Gupsi) situated in an open area surrounded by rhododendron and pine forests. We'll cross suspension bridges to reach Singla, Khorla, and Khorla Besi villages, where we encounter the gorge of the Budi Gandaki River.

We'll also get to enjoy the natural hot springs of Tatopani and cross the Budi Gandaki River again to reach Hulchowk village. Moving on, we'll pass through Runchet, Kerauja, Kashigau, and Yarsa, which are nestled at the foot of Ganesh Himal. From Yarsa, we'll descend through terraced crop fields to reach our final destination, Soti Khola. The next day, we'll reserve a private vehicle to take us back to Kathmandu, concluding our memorable trek.

the Dharchee Kang Trek offers a unique and less-crowded experience with stunning landscapes and mountain views, providing a great adventure for nature enthusiasts and trekking lovers.
