Historical Culture Trekking is designed with the purpose of trekking to an off-the-beaten-track region of Nepal where there is varied terrain of moderate difficulty, spectacular mountain views, interesting villages, historical palaces and friendly local people who see few trekkers. We avoid the major trekking routes and get to experience a very different side of Nepal! You are walking throughout native villages to experience wonderful Nepalese hospitality and cross-cultural heritage.
