The Chadragiri Range flanks the south-western part of Kathmandu Valley. The verdant hills of the Range are dotted with small traditional villages, pretty lakes and spectacular mountain scenery. The Weekend Hikers from Explore Himalaya recently took to the picturesque trail skirting the Changragiri Hill. The group began their trip from Thankotand reached Chitlang Village crossing Chandragiri Hill. They trekked upto Markhu Village and enjoyed boating atKulekhani. According to Samir from Sales “It was an unplanned yet an amazing trip!”

This tour has an expedition character which requires a great sense of adventure. You only have to carry a daypack on the trek which should contain a warm jacket and rain coat since weather can change quickly in the mountains. You will need walking poles and a torch since most of the time while we camp we will have no electricity. On the trek we prepare the meals ourselves. Our porters and assistant will buy food along the way and carry it for us. For lunch we will cook with a small gas stove or whenever possible use facilities in the villages. In some places you will get the opportunity for a shower. Otherwise we can also heat up a bucket of water for some rough washing. Be prepared to improvise and lack of comfort. This will be a real adventure!

Компания Happy Hari trekking была порекомендована мне приятелем из Непала и я нисколько не пожалела об этом выборе. Два Hari - два основателя компании и их команда очень дружелюбные и приятные люди, которые позаботились о правильно подобранном и очень опытном проводнике (а в треккинге мне предстояло провести 27 дней). Индра ( мой проводник) хотя и имел проблемы с английским языком, но он очень надежный. Как то раз другие туристы ждали нас, потому что их собственный проводник не смог провести их через ледник, но мой Индра сделал это! Мне также понравилось, что в пути я могла сама выбирать направление и Индра был готов к этому. Он учитывал мои пожелания и выбирал наилучший из возможных вариантов, чтобы дойти туда и увидеть то, что я хотела. Поэтому я еще и благодарна ему за невероятное тепрение.

С Happy Hari trekking мне удалось не просто совершить высокогорный треккинг но и пройти к Base camp Everest через деревни шерпа и дойти до пока еще мало посещаемого туристами Pikey Peak. Для тех, кто не может подниматься высоко в горы, это хорошая и очень интересная альтернатива. Я очень рекомендую эту компанию тем, кто желает не просто пройти по туристической тропе, но и иметь возможность выбирать собственный маршрут.
