The Indigenous Peoples Trail presents an incomparable, natural blend of cultural, linguistic and ethnic diversity coupled with breathtaking Himalayan panoramas and scenic landscape of Nepal.
he Indigenous Peoples Trek is a newly identified trek through a land of wide-ranging cultural diversity and scenic landscape with astonishing mountain panoramas. Indigenous Peoples Trek passes through the mid hills of Nepal and is at a relatively lower elevation than some of the other popular treks and suitable even in the winter months.
Indigenous Peoples Trek begins near the high point and then makes a pleasant top-down trek to the finishing location near the Sun Koshi River. Along the way, along with the blend of cultures and people, the trail visits caves, mountain viewpoints, famous Hindu temples, Buddhist monasteries and even a fishing village among many other highlights. The trail was officially launched in 2009 AD and has therefore seen fewer tourists compared to the more popular trails and it preserves its original mystique, while allowing closer connections to the people and landscape.
