About This Tour

Dudhkunda, also known as Dudhpokhari, sits majestically at an altitude of approximately 5,300 meters above sea level, while Thurchu, the base camp of Dudhpokhari and Namun La Pass, marks the geographical center of Lamjung, Manang, and Kaski Districts, boasting an altitude of around 4,500 meters above sea level.

This hidden jewel remains relatively undiscovered, making it one of the world's most picturesque yet least-trekked destinations. Dudhkunda offers a perfect blend of natural beauty and rich cultural experiences, providing an enticing prospect for adventure enthusiasts seeking new trekking routes in the Annapurna Region of Nepal.

The Khaling Rais, the predominant community in this region, add to the unique charm of Dudhkunda. With their distinct language, the Khaling Rais are known for their proactive engagement in both joint and nuclear family ties. Their cultural identity is reflected in rituals such as the Bhume Dance, the Chandi Dance, and the Naghi Pooja, while Chhan, a locally fermented millet/rice wine, is an integral part of their cuisine and traditions.

The highlanders firmly believe in worshipping their ancestral deities and the earth to ensure the continuity of human existence. Despite their affiliation with the Kirant ethnic group, the Khaling Rais enthusiastically celebrate Hindu and Buddhist festivals, showcasing the harmonious blend of diverse cultures in this remote Himalayan enclave.
