It’s the experience of unparalleled beauty, where your eyes can feast on the enthralling beauty of nature, it’s the experience of adventure, where every step encourages another step to move forward without looking back, it’s the experience of a peaceful life away from the usual skyscrapers. Moreover, this time it’s also an experience of hardship, where your eyes can witness the post earthquake life of people in the remote village of Gorkha: Barpak, Laprak and Gumda. The beauty, culture and the hospitality of these villages in the Gorkha district of Nepal have never failed to attract tourists in the past. However, the destructive earthquake on 25th April 2015 has very badly shattered the settlement making almost everyone homeless, jobless and hopeless.

Therefore, this trek by Amigo Treks and Expedition is designed to attract your attention towards these areas to help these people get back to normalcy, while helping you fulfill the dreams of trekking the trails of Nepal. Despite the destruction,the remote track, the Himalayan panorama, diverse scenery and the unique culture are very much welcoming and the people here are still ready to serve their guests with the best they can offer.

Starting Kathmandu, this 11 day Barpak Trek itinerary will take you to the three main beautiful Gorkha villages: Barpak, Laprak and Gumda, where along with the beauty of nature you can also enjoy the culture, tradition, settlement and the hospitality of Gurung people. The Kathmandu city tour is also included in the same package. Since, the lodges were destroyed by the earthquake; this trek is a home stay trek with local food and accommodation with very basic amenities. However, full board is ensured during the trek. Local transportation is available up till Baluwa (starting point of the trek) and from Arughat (ending point of the trek). Private jeep can be arranged on request, but requires extra cost.

This trek is perfect for anyone looking to do a little volunteer work, while on their way to making a memorable holiday. Come with a group and get special discount. You can also customize the itinerary as per your requirements and we guarantee 100% departure on each customized package. This trip can be planned any time of the year. Moreover, people who are looking for a purely adventurous trek, we offer some of the best deals on Everest, Annapurna, Langtang and Manaslu trekking packages. Enjoy!
