This new and unique trek has been designed to provide an insider’s look at the high mountains and remote Solu region.
Though less high and famous than the neighboring Khumbu, it is likewise inhabited by the friendly Sherpa people. Solu also receives far less trekking traffic than the Khumbu, making for a more intimate and authentic experience. Dudh Kunda lake is situated at the foot of Numbur Himal, locally known as Shorong Yul Lha, ” Protector of Solu “.
From Kathmandu we drive to Jiri and during two days we follow the Jiri – Lukla old route before heading to a completely new route through forested ridges and sparsely inhabited area. From day six, we trek through high pastures, pine and rhododendron forests without permanent settlement. Walking upstream the Beni Khola we reach Dudh Kunda and keep one day for exploring around. Rather than retracing our footsteps in return, we descend towards Khumbu region for ending in Lukla. Next day we fly back to Kathmandu.
