Kathmandu – Jalbire
It is a driving day today to the starting point of our trekking adventure to Bhairav Kunda. About 5 hours of drive will take us to Jalbire, the destination for the day, to stay overnight. The drive takes us past scenic surroundings along Araniko highway. Once we reach Jalbire, we will have time to wander around the traditional Newari town and also enjoy beautiful views of the surroundings.
Jalbire – Chanaute
We are all set to embark on the trekking journey today. The first day of our trek takes us to a small and beautiful village of Chanaute. It is a perfect introductory walk in the region that goes for about five hours before reaching the destination. We will also walk past beautiful ethnic villages along the trail that will bring us chance to explore some local life as well. We set up our tents and stay overnight at Chanaute.
Chanaute – Khani Gaun
We continue the trek along the peaceful region of the mountains. Our destination for the day is a beautiful Newari village of Khani Gaun. It takes us around six hours to reach the village where we can explore beautiful lifestyle. The day will challenge us with a long uphill trek but it is certainly a pleasant day. We can enjoy beautiful surroundings as we trek up towards, Khani Gaun. After settling in our tents, we will take some time to wander around and explore the village.
Khani Gaun – Forest Camp
We are going to be over 3,000 meters for the first time on the trek. The walk from Khani Gaun to Forest Camp is a pleasant experience that takes us through beautiful and forested area. It is definitely a wonderful day at nature walk. We will traverse the trail through beautiful natural surroundings for about six hours before reaching the Forest Camp to stay overnight.
Forest Camp – Pati
Every other day towards Bhairav Kunda is taking us to higher elevation. And the walk today also takes to Pati to be at the elevation of 3,765 meters above sea level. This is an impressive elevation to enjoy the wonders of its surroundings. However, the walk to reach the destination today will challenge us with uphill trail for about 5 hours. Beautiful natural surroundings along the trail will make the walk feel comfortable.
Pati – Bhairav Kunda
We eventually reach Bhairav Kunda, the final destination of the trip, on our walk today. About 4 hours of walk will take us to the place where the sacred lake sits impressively with the magnificent Himalayan background. Once we reach Bhairav Kunda and set up our camp, we will have time to explore and exploit the beauty of its surroundings.
Bhairav Kunda – Sherpa Gaun
It’s an early morning start today. On the walk to Sherpa Gaun today, we will stop at the sunrise viewpoint to enjoy a beautiful sunrise over the mountains. After the sunrise, we descend all the way to the Sherpa Gaun to stay overnight. In addition to the sunrise, we will also enjoy some overwhelming views of the mountains in the Himalaya. Exploring Sherpa Gaun will allow us to understand the life of the local Sherpa people.
Sherpa Gaun – Larcha
Larcha is our overnight camping site for the day. And we are also on the final day of the trek. About five hours of walk will take us to our campsite. Once we reach Larcha, we can walk to a natural hot spring site to have a soothing hot spring bath. The bath feels nice and healing after these many days of trekking in the mountains. We return back to the campsite after the bath and enjoy relaxing time.
Larcha – Kathmandu
We drive back to Kathmandu from Larcha. It will be about six hours of drive along the highway with beautiful surroundings. We will have relaxing time at leisure once we reach the hotel in Kathmandu.
As the last day on this beautiful adventure trip, we will drive you to the airport for your departure flight as per your flight schedule. If this is not your departure day, the service for this trip ends here. If you have extra days to spend in Nepal and need any other assistance, please do let us know. We will certainly help you in whatever way we can.
The walking adventure to the Bhairav Kunda goes through the trail that meanders up and down the mountains frequently. Although this is not an extremely difficult trip, you will certainly feel some challenges of walking up and down the mountain trails during the trip. We would rate it as a moderate trip in difficulty level.
Walking hours vary from day to day on this trip. You can expect the walking hours to be around 6 hours on average.
Since it is cultural walking adventure trip, you do not need any climbing skills, experience or equipment. However, you will need a high level of determination to traverse the mountain trail for several days. This is just a cultural trekking trip.
Since the adventure is a new addition to the trekking adventures in Nepal, finding teahouses along the trail is difficult. Camping is the best option for this adventure. We use tented camps as accommodation during the trek. The overnight places are specified in the itinerary.
Since it is a camping trek, we prepare our own food during the trek. Mostly the food will be Dal Bhat during the trek for the lunch and dinner. We will try to bring some variations on food as well but since it is a camping trek up in the mountains, please expect the food to be pretty repetitive.
When you go for the walking adventure trip, you will pack two different bags – one big backpack that your porter will carry for you and the other, a small daypack for yourself to carry with necessary things that you need for the day. You can refer to our Things to Carry page for a complete guide on what you need to have when you are in the mountains.
