Introduction to Jugal Himal Trek

Jugal Himal Trek is isolated and located north of Kathmandu. The major mountains of the Langtang region are Jugal Himal and Dorje Lakpa at an altitude above 6,000 meters. Although the trek is very up and down, the village is culturally interesting in how Nepalese will live their lives in the countryside.

The villages of this Langtang region have the main Tamang tribe settlements. Their culture, traditions, and daily life are different from any other tribe. This journey gives us a glimpse of the old and primitive culture of this remote region of Nepal, where we may feel like we are hundreds of years behind.

On the way to this area, you will find some exotic flora and fauna while traveling through the rich Rhododendron forests, as well as some small Buddhist monasteries in the villages. Jugal Himal Trek brings you closer to three ethnic groups of Nepal – Tamang, Sherpa, and Halmo – and allows you to know their traditions. During this trek, we can enjoy the real taste of Bhotang’s potatoes, Helambu apples, fresh yak cheeses, and butter.

Start Your Trek in Langtang Region

After 4 hours of drive, you reach Chautara from where your journey begins. The trail gradually crosses the Indrawati valley to the Holy Panch Pokhari (Five Lakes) and then goes to the remote Balephi Valley. These 5 glacier lakes are located in a delightful place surrounded by picturesque lush green hills.

Although Jugal Himal is a beautiful destination for trekking, only a few camping trekkers visit this area. This trip is more expensive than other normal trips due to the lack of food and accommodation facilities. Jugal Himal Trek is perfect for trekkers who do not like to meet many other travelers or spend time in a crowded place.

The best seasons for the Jugal Himal Trek are spring and autumn. You can also complete the trip in the winter and summer. But you have to have the proper gear to deal with these seasons. This is a moderate-level trek. You must keep yourself physically fit to complete the trek. The maximum height of the trek is 3,800 meters. So you should have the proper equipment and be careful about altitude risk.

Have just returned from my fourth trip to Nepal and as always Odyssey Treks organized everything superbly. We visited Makalu relatively late in the season and were rewarded with empty trails and amazing weather. Karma was as entertaining, friendly, and informative as ever along with Ang Dawa Sherpa who together made the three weeks perfect.

They also organized a few days to Helambu at short notice as I had some time spare, all done easily and professionally. Thanks for the company both and I will be back again. I cannot recommend Odyssey highly enough as a genuinely friendly, locally based company that provides not only unforgettable experiences but also great service at a very reasonable cost.

Thanks.

Tsum Valley Trek

I have just returned from the trip of a lifetime. Always wanted to visit and see the Himalayas and to have completed the trip with the most excellent hosts really made the trip come alive. Odyssey took care of everything and ensured that we experienced real Nepalese hospitality. We climbed up to 3700 meters, saw Ganesh Himal, experienced true excitement on the trek, ate superbly produced fresh food along the route..and above all met some amazing people. Thanks to Karma, Rinji, and our fantastic porters…without you guys it wouldn’t have happened!! All the best. Alex
