 » Rhododendron (Salpa pass ) Trekking

Trek type : Camping
Trek Grade : Introductory/Moderate
Duration : 30 days
Activities : Sightseeing/Trekking/Rafting & Jungle Safari.
Best Time to go : September through to April (Dec/Jan can be very hazy)
Departure dates : By arrangement

This trek starts from a high vantage point at the township of Hille. For a few kilometers the trail follows a new road being built by the Nepali Army before turning back on to the original trail and the commencement of a long and steep descent to the floor of the valley and the Arun River. There are some beautiful views of the Mt. Makalu ranges as you descend. The trail is a very busy transportation route for the villages and major centres such as Khadbari, so you will see a continuous stream of porters carrying every conceivable item a town could need.
After Salpa Pass, the trek will take you through some impressive Rhododendron forest and villages of the Rai, Brahman, Chetri and other 'caste' common to this area.
