After breakfast we begin our tour of four amazing UNESCO World Heritage Sites. These

Nath, the interesting ‘Monkey Temple’ (Swayambunath) and Bauddha Nath Stupa which
is one of the largest stupas in the world. After completing our tour late in the
afternoon, we drive to Himalayan Glacier’s office for a brief meeting about our trek and
get to know our team leader (guide) and fellow travelers.

Day 03: Drive from Kathmandu to Sundarijal (1350m.) takes about one hour and then walk uphill to Chisopani.

The unpaved road from Kathmandu turns into a trail near a small hydroelectric plant. The trail passes through the Shivapuri Watershed and Wildlife Reserve. The first settlement you will come across is Mulkharka with Tamang inhabitants. The route heads down the ridge through the forest of oaks and rhododendron to Chisopani (2300m.). Chisopani is cold for its weather. It has magnificent views from Annapurna to Everest. Stay overnight at lodge.

Day 04:Trek from Chisopani to Kutumsang (2446m.) takes about seven hours.

The trail continues to drop from Chisopani on a good, sometimes level trail that crosses the meadow and fields. You will then descend through Pathi Bhanjyang till Gul Bhanjyang. The trail climbs the ridge from Gul Bhanjyang to another pass at 2620m. The meadow makes a good camping spot, its downhill to Kutumsang at 2470m, in a saddle atop the ridge. Stay overnight at lodge.

Day 05: Trek from Kutumsang to Tharepati Pass (3650 m.) takes about five and half hours.

The trek continues north up the Yurin Danda ridge and affords views of the peaks. The trail climbs above Kutumsang on a steep, eroded trail mostly through fir and rhododendron forest where there are no permanent settlements. The trail then descends gradually to Magen Goth. There are few lodges and Goths (Domestic Animal Shed). The trail gradually ascends through the enchanting forest enriched with beautiful rhododendron, oak, and other trees. Tharepati, in fact, is a great viewpoint from where you can take a glimpse of the breathtaking view of the snow-capped mountains such as Dorje Lakpa, Gaurishankar, Langshisa, Jugal, Number, and many others. Stay overnight at lodge.

Day 06: Trek from Tharepati to Tarkeghyang (2743m.) via Melamchi Gaon (2640m) takes about five and half hours.

Melamchi Gaon is surrounded by beautiful forests, where it is mainly inhabited by Sherpa people with their distinctive culture. Leaving Melamchi Gaon, you trek along the descending path until you cross the stream named as Melamchi. Now you trek gently up to Tarkeghyang passing through Sherpa settlements. Tarkeghyang is a beautiful Sherpa village with one of the oldest and biggest monasteries. Tarkeghyang, also known as Helambu is named after the Helmu caste. The Sherpa people living here originally belong to Helmu caste. Stay overnight at lodge.
