This is an off the beaten trail through thinly populated area near the Tibetan border on the southern rim of the giant Mt. Gauri Shankar with walks up the ridges gently outlining in the valley. One will see several beautiful little villages as the trek ascends gradually into the lovely upper part of this valley through the misty rhododendron forest. From the ridge line, a breathtaking view of the Mt. Gauri Shankar Peak 7,145m (23,439ft) can be relished on. The trek leads to Tinshang Ri (3,812m) from Tinshang La to catch the glimpse of Mt. Everest (8,848 m) and panorama of the entire mid Eastern Himalayan Range. With grand view of Mt. Gauri Shankar (where the Nepal time meridian passes through), the trek descends along the narrow path passing through mixed forests to Dolong Sha, the valley’s last village. It is then followed by a walk through the terraced middle hills to a large bazaar of Barabise (2,700ft) situated on the bank of Bhote Koshi River.
