TAAN to explore new trekking trails in Mahabharat Range

The Trekking Agencies Association of Nepal (TAAN) is exploring new trekking trails in the Mahabharat Range. A 15-member team of the association will leave for Kavre on August 19 to explore Timal area of Kavre and the Mahabharat Range. Along with TAAN officials and trekking entrepreneurs, the team will include a videographer, photographer, cartographer and report writer.

According to Ambar Tamang, 2nd vice president of TAAN, the team will explore two trekking trails – The Great Buddhist Masters Trail and Mahabharat Rhododendron Trail. “We will also prepare a guide book, maps and documentary to promote the new trails in national and international arena,” Tamang said.

The five-day Great Buddhist Masters Trail will begin from Panauti and end at Lubughat. Similarly, the Mahabharat Rhododendron Trail, which can be completed in 8-10 days, begins from Sindhuli Gadhi and end at Khopasi.

TAAN believes that high peaks of Mahabharat range, dense rhododendron forest and diverse culture and lifestyle of people will attract tourists to the area. “We hope the new routes will be liked by domestic and foreign visitor alike because of their proximity to Kathmandu,” he added. “The route will be cheaper compared to other routes in the country.”
