11 Day Mundum Trekking Trial.

The Mundum Trekking Trial truly appears to be an extraordinary adventure! The picturesque landscapes and natural beauty along the trail must be awe-inspiring. It’s commendable that the Nepalese government is actively promoting new trekking routes, not only diversifying tourism but also contributing to the local economy.

The Mundum  Trekking Trial is heightened by its passage through various breathtaking spots, including the revered Salpa Pokhari and the majestic Silichho Peak, providing panoramic views of multiple mountain ranges, with Mount Everest prominently featured. While embracing the adventure, it’s crucial to uphold the cultural significance of these sites, practicing responsible trekking by leaving minimal impact and respecting local traditions.

The fact that camping is the sole option along the trail adds to the allure, providing an opportunity to deeply connect with nature and immerse oneself in the wilderness fully. However, adequate preparation, including carrying essential equipment and supplies, is imperative.

In summary, the Mundum Trekking Trial promises an unforgettable adventure, and I eagerly anticipate exploring it someday!

Silichho Peak treats trekkers to unobstructed views of more than 22 peaks, including Mt. Everest (8,848m), Lhotse (8,516m), Nuptse (7,861m), Mera (6,476m), Chamlang (7,319m), Numbur (6,958m), Makalu (8,481m), Chalachuli (3,636m), and the Kanchenjunga Range (8,586m). Both Salpa Lake and Silichho Peak hold sacred significance in the Kirat Community.

The Mundum Trekking Trial concludes with a descent from Silichho Peak to Salpa Phedi (1,680m), Chewa Besi (285m), and Tumlingtar (457m). While it poses challenges with steep ascents and descents, the trek offers an unforgettable experience for seasoned trekkers seeking both adventure and breathtaking views.
