Come with me to hike the picturesque Numbur Cheese Circuit in Nepal. During 20 days, we’ll discover a corner of the world rich in biodiversity and culture. In addition, we’ll enjoy stunning views of the Himalayas, glaciers, waterfalls and lakes.

We’ll meet at the Kathmandu Tribhuvan International Airport and explore the Nepalese capital and its sightseeing spots for a day. Then, we’ll drive to Shivalaya, at the foot of the Everest region, where we’ll begin our hiking adventure.

During our trip, we’ll get to experience a variety of flora and fauna. The area is home to the Red Panda, the Musk deer, the Himalayan thar, the Snow Leopard and several species of pheasants like Danfe. If we’re lucky, we’ll get to meet them. Our path will also be covered in conifer and rhododendron forests, forests of Sunpati, glaciers and lakes. Some of them include: Kimti Koala RiverLuikharka, Linkhu Nup Glacier, Bigphera Go Nup Glacier, Panga Dinga Glacier, and the unforgettable Lhasa lake. We’ll also visit cheese factories, Sherpa villages and monasteries.

This trip is also wonderful to enjoy views of the Rowaling Himal Range, majestic sunset views, the Parchemo peak, Bigphera Go Nup (Pathibarra) and Numburchuli.
