About Indigenous Peoples Trail

Indigenous peoples trail trek is a unique new trekking trail in Nepal which offers to explore the multi-culture, langue, and ethnic area of mid-region of Nepal. The indigenous people's trail trek is easy trekking and not very high in elevation. The magnificent panoramic view of the Dhaulagiri, Annapurna, Manaslu, Ganesh Himal and Langtang Himalayan range to the left and the Jugal, Everest, and Kanchenjunga Himalayan range to the right can be seen from this trekking trail. The trekking trail has been encircled by Sunkoshi River to the south and the Tamakoshi River to the east. The main experience of this trek is the homestay with the locals being as their family member and gives you the traditional and typical encounter of the multi-ethnic people of this region.

Indigenous peoples trail is the best mixture of the cultural and the ethnic diversity with stunning massifs and the more. After driving about five hours from Kathmandu to Mude, the trek starts by crossing different beautiful villages of different ethnic people such as Tamang, Sherpa, Magar, Yolmo, Majhi and Newar. The local people from this region are practising the Hinduism and Buddhism then you can face with their deities, shrines, temples, monasteries, stupas, and the other things.  The local people, with whom you stay every different night, welcome you very well with nice hospitality and treat you like their own family member.  It really helps you to know about the culture and lifestyle by staying in the local houses. You will have the great chance to enjoy the cultural and the traditional folk music and the dance and join with them.
