The NEW Dharma Hill Trek (Dharma Danda Trek) gets you away from the crowds and into less explored regions. It takes you to numerous villages each with their unique culture and traditions that includes Rai, Chhetri similarly as Brahmin, Tamang, Sherpa, and Magar villages. The Dharma Hill Trek is also referred to as the Lower Everest Eco Trek.
The Dharma Hill Trek starts from Salleri or Phaplu amidst striking terraced farmland and lush valleys then crosses the Dudh Kosi River (milk river) continuing on through fascinating villages in the SoluKhumbu region, such as Rai, Chhetri, Brahmin, Tamang, Sherpa and Magar.
The Suke Danda, Dharma Danda, and Ghyangkharka peaks are the highlights of this trek and of course, the fantastic views of several giant snow-capped mountains, Mt.Everest (8848m), Mt.Lhotse (8516m), Mt.Makalu (8481m – 5th highest in the world) and Mt.Kanchenjunga (8586m).
The ideal time to do this trek is from September to December (autumn) and from March to May (spring). Between March and May, the rhododendron forests will be in full bloom, with pink flowers contrasting with the otherwise green countryside. Homestay accommodation is offered and is an excellent way of understanding how families survive in these sometimes rugged and remote regions. The best starting point of this trek is from Phaplu.
Sherpa Expedition and Trekking also offer several other new trekking destinations to out of the way places, such as Pikey Peak Trek in the Lower SoluKhumbu region, Panch Pokhari Mera Trek and the Arun Valley Salpa Pass Trek. These treks will also offer you a uniquely peaceful and more tranquil time in this region.
Your trekking gear (Sleeping bag, Down jacket and trekking pole, are possible to rent and buy in Thamel Kathmandu, if you inform us, we will provide this).
The following information will give you some idea about what you need to bring for the trek. It is important you do not forget the essential items, as this will determine your comfort and safety on the trek. Equally important is that you do not burden yourself with unnecessary equipment on the trek.
(Note our company guide will carry the medicines and first aid kits during the trek. However, we recommend you bring your personal first-aid kit as well)
You will be accommodated in 3-star hotels in Kathmandu. During the Dharma Hill Trek. we will be staying at the homestay/local tea house. You may not find comfort and better quality teahouses.
In Kathmandu, your hotel includes breakfast, whereas all meals (breakfast, lunch, and dinner) will be provided during the trek. A staple food of the Khumbu region is potatoes, oats, buckwheat, Sherpa stew, and Tibetan bread. Sherpas started farming potatoes when the first seeds were introduced to the region in the early 90s. There is a limited choice of food at higher elevations and except many potato dishes. Potatoes are high in carbohydrates – an excellent source of energy needed at high altitudes.
We use a private car for sightseeing and for the airport to hotel pick and drop off. We do not have to use public transportation or local buses during the trek. Our only flights are from Kathmandu to Lukla and return.
Dharma Hill is an easy trek where you often have to walk 5-6 hours a day. You don’t need past experience of hiking or trekking but if you have done any kind of trekking activities then it is always a plus!. We have met people from all walks of life, shapes, and sizes who have completed the trek. The only difficult part is when altitude sickness strikes and the effect that it can have on your body. Before leaving for Nepal it is good if you can prepare yourself physically by increasing your stamina and oxygen intake.
