For the success of Nepal Tourism year 2011, tourism entrepreneurs and officials are busy building up infrastructure and planning new tours and packages for tourists. That the trekkers may get to explore some f the least explored places, Gorkha Tourism Board in collaboration with Nepal Tourism Board (NTB) is working to establish a new trekking route from Manakamana to Gorkha. Gorkha was the royal seat of the erstwhile Shah dynasty, which ruled Nepal till 2008, when a popular people’s movement overthrew monarchy and declared Nepal a republic.
Gorkha Durbar: The Old Palace of the Shah Kings in Gorkha
The trail, covering a distance of 25 km from Manakamana to Gorkha winds through traditional Magar villages, historical and religious sites and dense forests filled with Himalayan flora and fauna.The Board will be introducing two packages for the trail: a two nights/three days package and a three nights-four days package.
The Gorkha Tourism Board is also planning to revive the ancient Lig Lig Kot race during Chaite Dassein festival(celebrated in March/April). The race will be open to locals and visitors alike, and the winner will be declared the tourism ambassador of Gorkha. According to legend it was by winning in this particular race in the 14th century, that Dravya Shah became the king of Gorkha. However, after his win, he discontinued this race and started the reign of Shah dynasty in Gorkha.
Apr 2023 I had an incredible experience trekking to Everest Base Camp with Explore Himalaya. Our guides were absolutely amazing. They provided us with exceptional support and guidance throughout the journey. The porters deserve special recognition too for their hard work and dedication. The entire journey was filled with breathtaking views and unforgettable experiences. From the start until the conclusion , every moment was filled with awe and wonder. I highly recommend Explore Himalaya for anyone seeking an unforgettable trekking experience in the Himalayas. Thank you to all the the staff, for making our journey truly exceptional!
13 Day Manaslu Circuit Trek Nov 2018 We have just returned to Kathmandu after a wonderful trek around the Manaslu circuit, starting in Soti Khola and finishing in Jaget. The trek and transport out and back to Kathmandu were very well organized. Our guide, Bharet Rana was excellent, arranging our tea-house accomodation and meals each day, without hitch. He was always good humoured and provided an interesting commentary on sights along the way.
Our Everest Base Camp trek was a wonderful and memorable one. Everything was very well organised. Thank you Explore Himalaya and the staffs for such an excellent service. We were taken care of from the moment we landed in Ktm till the day we left. The Guides and the Porters team of Explore Himalaya are very friendly and helpful. They took care of every little things during our trek. Some walked faster, some slowly and few could not but No one was left behind. They walk with your pace and motivates you until you get up. Anuj Pandey, MD of Explore Himalaya was available 24 hours a day when anybody was in need, he even flew to Namche to check if everything was going well and if everybody was doing good. The Guides Bibek Pandey, Bhuwan Tamang and Ram Rajbhandari along with their 5 Porters were the main pillars who made our mission accomplished. I'd highly recommend anybody who wants to travel to Nepal to contact Explore Himalaya and get themselves spoilt and entertained with their excellent service.
