Overview And Highlights

The Mahabharat region is located in the East of Kathmandu. The Mahabharat trek is a short trek through an unfrequented trekking route along with the Mahabharat Himalayan range. Although this trek can be completed in a week, we can always add a few more days to this program. This shall give you more time to marvel at the beauty of this exotic place.

This trek takes you through virgin forests of rhododendron, across a scenic landscape with the mighty Himalayas in the backdrop. Along the trail, you can also see the vast plains of the tropical Terai region. The trail also passes through ancient settlements, allowing you to get an insight into the culture of the local villages. You can always combine this trek with a wild river rafting trip to Sunkoshi. In addition, you can also combine this program with a trip to and from Tibet.
