Indigenous Peoples trek or I.P. Trails was opened within a few years ago and takes trekkers through lesser-traveled through parts of Nepal. Located after a 6-hour jeep drive from Kathmandu, begin our journey to get the real local experience of Nepal. Stunning mountain views, the sacred Hundred Hills, sacred caves, Buddhist ceremonies, and connecting to the local people and culture added up to create an unforgettable adventure. We walk through typical Nepali villages, and enjoy the warm hospitality at homestays, and stay at a Buddhist Monastery among the hospitable female nuns.

Our guide shares with you the magic of the folklore and religious sites hiding throughout the region. Indigenous people trek is generally easy, and perfect for those looking to gain a better cultural understanding of Nepal, and want to get away from the more popular trekking routes. Join with Rugged Trails Nepal to make your life memorable trip, For more about indigenous trek details read our blog which was written by Allie (from the USA).

    Nirajan is great! Nepal is a beautiful, amazing place but like anything, the company of those around me was the highlight of my experience. Nirajan made an effort to befriend us, not just provide a service.
