    About Trip

    Explore the continuing culture at the very heart of the 2015 Earthquake!

    It was just before noon on Saturday, 25 April when the ground shifted near the remote Himalayan village of Barpak. Across eastern Nepal and through the Kathmandu Valley, nearly 9000 people died in under a minute. The ground shook, destroying buildings as well as creating a significant loss of life.

    Barpak Village is located in the shadow of Mt. Boudha Himal, a snowcapped peak that rises to the north. The village itself has long been known as home to many of the Gurkha Soldiers. It’s population is composed almost entirely of Gurung and Ghale tribal people who’s hospitality is second to none.

    This is a nine day adventure into the very heart of the earthquake. The land here is now stable and the people are rebuilding their homes, schools and monasteries. Here, you will discover how the people of Barpak have joined hands to remake their mountainside village home once more.

    It’s just five days of relatively easy trekking in the Himalayas. The journey will take you to Barpak, and then down to the mighty Budhi Gandaki River.

    Here you will find Buddhist monasteries, shamanism, Hinduism and Christianity, all living and working side by side in peace and harmony. Nepal is like that – there are a lot of different religions and ethnic groups, but there is such an amazing sense of peace here in these mountains.

    The region is bright with wildflowers. Waterfalls abound, sometimes in the most unlikely places. Enjoy delicious fish fresh from local rivers. Explore ancient temples as you relax in the new village of Barpak!

    Mansingh Gurung of Trek Explore Nepal is delighted to take you to his hometown to share with you all that this post-earthquake village has to offer in the very heart of the Himalayas!
