Trip: Majh Gaun Cultural Trek


Mega Adventures International research team has recently discovered this route which is culturally unique and naturally untamed. Cultural practices and festivals of Gurung community, century’s old farming and pasturing practice and traditional houses of local people, and their daily household activities, which are completely detached with modernity, are enough to bring the feeling of ancient human civilization. Beside this, untamed natural beauty, floating widely under the shadow of high mountains such as, Manaslu, Annapurna . Himchuli, fishtail, evoke the trekkers to get lost around the periphery.

The trek begins from Besisahar after 6 hrs drive from Kathmandu. We will then walk about max 3 hrs for the first day and reach to Majhgaun. We will have full day cultural program where local people will present different kind of cultural dance of Gurung community. After Philiso, team will spend the night in tented camp until we reach to Naiche Village. We will explore different untouched places with the magnificent view of High Himalayas and different lake with dense forest during this trek interacting local people with local cultural. We will celebrate their life, culture during our last day of the trek. This trek will give us immense opportunity to explore the beauty of local lifestyle of Gurung community.

They were reliable, timely, organized and above all fun!

My experience with Mega Adventures could not have been any better! When I arrived in Kathmandu, I was warmly received by a member of the staff who, after dropping my bags off at the hotel, kindly led me around the city. After spending a few days exploring that wonderful city and meeting my climbing guide, we flew out to Lukla to begin our trek. Our goal was to summit Island Peak with a stop at Everest base camp along the way for acclimatization. Throughout the trek, my guide and porter were incredibly supportive and engaging and taught me so much about the region and culture. Although we ultimately were unable to summit Island peak due to weather conditions (one of the greatest challenges of climbing) we did reach approximately 6,000m, the highest I had ever been. I was immensely satisfied with the climb. Though I have taken a mountaineering course previously and had the opportunity to climb many of the highest peaks in Washington State, I was new to the Himalayan Mountains. My guide taught me several new techniques to enhance safety while climbing and provided a safe, encouraging environment. I would highly recommend this guiding company, as they were reliable, timely, organized and above all fun!
