Timal Trek and Sailung Region (Grade D)
This is a most non-tourist area and less crowded, but a very splendid one. This trek takes you to Thulo Sailung (3100 m), its highest elevation, from where you will see a vast Himalayan range from Makalu to Dhaulagiri. In additional, this is the only trek from where you will have a glimpse of Tarai - the lowland of Nepal as well as the worlds highest - Mt. Everest (8848 m).
While trekking in this area, we walk high up on spectacular ridges in an area inhabited by Tamangs - an indigenous Buddhists community whose religion is a fusion of Buddhist Lamaism and the Shamanist Bon culture. It is common for a village to have a Lama and a Jhankri (Shaman). Except Tamang, you will have encountered with different ethnic people and experience about socio-economic situation, life-style, and their professions.
Moreover, the main attraction of this area is, it gives a wide range of exploration to the trekkers. Trekkers carry only daypack and walk at their own pace. Average hiking per day in Timal Sailang will be 6-7 hrs.
