Trip Overview

Milke Danda Nepal Rhododendron Trek  leads through pleasant lowland country, up onto a remote, uninhabited ridge with fine mountain views of four of the world's five highest peaks. The first few days out of Basantapur are easy and pleasant, leading up to Gupha Pokhari, where Makalu''s reflection simmers in the water of a pond. A trail continues up through the extensive pure rhododendron forests of the Milke Danda, past herders camps, and onto Jaljale Himal ridge (4765 meters), a rocky ridge set with a few small lakes. From end of February till April is best time for rhododendron flower.

For the return, several trails run down side ridges to reach Tumlingtar where we catch our flight to Kathmandu. Trekkers carry only daypack and walk on their own pace.

Average hiking per day will be 6-7 hr a day.
