Nepal offers a wide range of hiking and trekking adventures because it is home to eight of the fourteen tallest peaks and has a vast variety of geographical features. Nepal is the ideal location for outdoor enthusiasts because of its unusual altitude contrast and diverse topography. There is still more to learn, taste, and experience in Nepal than you could ever see in a lifetime of travel. Alpha Adventure Treks & Expeditions (AAT) has created and investigated some of the best new hidden trekking routes in Nepal when popular trekking routes are so crowded and if anyone is looking for quiet and calm trekking routes, less trafficked or completely off the beaten trekking track. These new hiking paths are serene, gorgeous, and magnificent.
The majority of the newly opened trekking routes in Nepal pass via isolated settlements. The expedition therefore mostly relies on “camping,” necessitating your independence in terms of food and camping supplies. However, for interested visitors, picking a new trekking area will be a great enthralling journey whether they are trekking, exploring, studying geography and botany, or for other reasons.
- Panch Pokhari Trekking:
A brand-new hiking trail in Nepal is called the Panch Pokhari. Northeast of Kathmandu, at the foot of the Jugal Himal, is Panch Pokhari (4,100 m). This location also has cultural, religious, and ecological significance. As a result, the five ponds (Panch Pokhari) in this area are revered. The environment, which is rather diverse and substantial, is located at the foot of the Jugal Himal. It’s kind of a cultural trip in Nepal since you pass through Sherpa and Tamang communities. You will get the opportunity to encounter both traditional Tamang and Sherpa culture on the trip. This camping excursion is also perfect for tourists searching for a serene, spiritual, and lovely trip.
- WalunchungGola and Lumba / Sumba Pass trekking:
The secret town of WalchungGola is reached after a few days of walking on the same path that leads further north through a beautiful forest of rhododendron, pines, and oaks that is located away from and beyond the major hiking paths of North Kanchenjunga base camp. The Sherpa and Bhotia mountain tribes inhabit this village, which is located along the historic Trans-Himalayan Salt Trade and Caravan Route between Nepal and Tibet. The return journey brings you to the high Lumba-Sumba-La Pass, which is above 5,160m high and offers breathtaking views of Kanchenjunga, Makalu peaks as far as Everest in the west, after spending some time exploring WalunchungGola. The trek is ultimately finished in low, mild farmlands and the town of Tumlingtar, which is located on the Salpa Pass route to Makalu and Everest.
- Ghale kharka Siklis Trek:
Gole kharka Siklis Trek takes you to isolated, off-the-beaten-path settlements. The Ghale kharka-Sikles region is referred as the ecological walk. You will travel to the Gurung Ethnic Group’s traditional villages, enjoy the cuisine, and perhaps get to watch some traditional dance acts like the “Ghato” from Sikles. There are also stunning views of the Annapurna and Lamjung Himal. The nature and cultural heritage of this recently opened area are being carefully protected under the supervision of ACAP (Annapurna Conservation Area Project).
- Tamang Heritage Langtang Gosaikunda:
The closest Himalayan trekking area to the Kathmandu Valley is Tamang Heritage, Langtang Gosaikunda Trek. This trek is a magnificent journey that encompasses the Gosaikunda Trek, the Langtang Valley Trek, and the Tamang Heritage Trek. Following the Trishuli River north of Kathmandu, we ride via Trishuli Bazaar and Dhunche to Syabrubesi, a Tamang village on the outskirts of the Langtang National Park. Then, as we ascend through the lower, gorge-like portion of the Langtang Valley, we make a bend to the east and enter. On the journey to the Tamang settlement of Langtang, we go through oak and rhododendron forests and even traverse a glacier moraine. As is customary, we take a bus from Kathmandu to Syabrubeshi to begin our trip.
- Mundum Trekking:
The beginning of the Mundum trekking trail is in the Diktel (1650m) district of Khotang village, which is located in the extreme east of Nepal past Haleshi Mahadev. The route then turns south into a valley in the direction of Tamkel Danda. As you make your way north-east up rocky Himalayan slopes to Salpa Pokhari (3348m), you’ll stay in teahouses and get a rare chance to experience Rai culture and go camping (Organize). The Mundum trekking track heads south to Hans Pokhari (2962m) and then on to Bhojpur(1600m)., providing breathtaking views of the Himalayas along the way
- Khayer Lake / Khopra Danda Trek:
Between the Jomsom hiking trail and the traditional Annapurna Base Camp, the Khayer Lake Trek is a brand-new trekking route in the Annapurna region. It is a recently promoted magnificent trekking path with a mixture of Gurung and Magar culture with spectacular mountain views from Khopra Ridge and Poon Hill across the various Himalayas, including Mt. Dhaulagiri, Annapurna, and Nilgiri. The most beautiful and pristine short walk in the Annapurna Himalayas is the Khopra danda and Khair Lake trip. The journey departs from the beaten path and provides stunning mountain views, untamed terrain, and a traditional Himalayan hiking adventure. Even though the track deviates from the main Annapurna routes, simple community-run teahouses make the journey affordable and more moral by having trekkers pay directly to the community.
Is the new trail safe for solo trekkers?
If you take the right measures and prepare properly, you can trek alone in Nepal. On the Nepalese trekking trails, a lot of hikers go it alone. However, for safety and recognized courses, it is preferable to walk with a native guide on Nepal’s new trekking routes. There may be a number of concerns when hiking on recently opened, less traveled trails. For this reason, trekking with a local guide is usually advised for a secure and stress-free journey. Additionally, it would be beneficial if you could go on your journey with a local guide who has more knowledge of the hiking trails, so you wouldn’t have to worry about the routes or accommodations.
