Escape the congestion of commercialized trekking routes and get ‘off-the-beaten track’ to experience the real Nepal- take the 'Indigenous Peoples (IP) Trail in west Ramechhap District, 130km east of Nepal’s capital, Kathmandu. The IP Trail offers unique exposure to one of the most culturally diverse areas of Nepal combined with a beautiful natural landscape. Bound by Sailung Peak in the north, the golden Sun Koshi River flowing along the south and the aqua-blue Tama Koshi River to the east, the IP Trail offers an incomparable combination of cultural, linguistic and ethnic diversity coupled with breathtaking Himalayan and mid-Hill panoramas.
