This remote valley was only opened to trekking in 2008. Bounded by Ganesh Himal and Sringi Himal, and Boudha ranges, the valley was settled by people of Tibetan origin, and has a rich cultural history. The trail is lined with chortens and mani walls and home to the historic monasteries of Rachen Gompa and Mu Gompa. Accommodations may be basic but what the region lacks in amenities it makes up for in hospitality.
