This trekking provides an exhilarating experience for any trekkers who curious about the ways of life that the Maoist cadres led in the rugged terrain along with the scenic panoramas. This treks also allows the trekkers to interact with the innocent locals untouched by the realms of modernization.

This is the only legal hunting reserve that covers the part of Myagdi, Rukum, and Rolpa districts; these are the conflicted region during the war. The trail goes through Jaljala Pass (3107m) by providing the stunning panorama of Api (7132m), Saipal (7031m), Dhaulagiri (8167m), Annapurna (8091m), and many other Himalayas. This trek also features unique cultures that vary in different locations throughout the trek. Also, the trek passes through lush forests of rhododendron, fir, pine, birch, juniper, oak, and hemlock to come across the settlements of Thakali, Tibetan, Chhetri, Brahmin, and Magar ethnics.
