CHERDUNG PEAK TREK 7NT/8DAYS
Cherdung Peak is located in the northern part of the Dolakha district. The trek to Cherdung Peak starts from Jiri, a beautiful valley situated at an elevation of 1,905 metres above sea level. Because of its scenic beauty, visitors usually compare Jiri with Zurich City of Switzerland.
Jiri, which lies about 190 kilemetres from Kathmandu, was the main gateway to the Everest Region in the past. Almost all the Everest expeditions, including the one led by famous climber John Hunt had passed through Jiri.
One can reach Cherdung cheese factory area after an hour’s trek from Jiri. The area is home to rare Jirel community people, who still believe in shamans. Thus, the area can be of significance for those who are interested in the lifestyles and cultures of the ethnic people.
Bhandara is the next destination from the Cherdung Cheese Factory. The area lies just to the south of the Everest Trail. There are Sherpa villages along the trail to the Likhu River from Bhandara. Trekkers will have to climb through terraced fields and rhododendron and magnolia forests along the trail. After crossing Ngaur, trekkers will have to ascend to the summit of Pike Peak. Located at about 4,090 metres above sea level, Pike Peak offers magnificent view of several mountains, including Everest, Makalu, Gaurishankar, Thamserku and Lhotse. One can reach Phaplu after some hours’ mild trek from the scenic Pike Peak.
