About Numbur Cheese Circuit Trekking
Numbur Cheese Circuit Trekkingis for the adventure seeker looking for an exciting journey in the remote highlands. This route travels away from the main path and enters territory that few tourists have visited.
Numbur Cheese Circuit Trek was jointly developed by the Ramechhap Economic Development Forum and the U.N.’s International Labor Organization. Numbur Cheese Circuit Trek was formally launched in October 2009 by the Nepal Tourism Board. This route will enter remote landscape up to the very base of the Himalaya with staggering scenery and cultural interaction along the Numbur Cheese Circuit trekking journey. According to the developers, there are thirteen cheese making stations on this circuit. Many of these are only operating during the monsoon season from June to September. A permanent, Swiss-designed factory at Thodung was established way back in 1957 and Thodung Gomba, a Buddhist monastery is in the serene hills nearby the cheese factory.
The Numbur Cheese Circuit Trekking is located within the Gauri-Shankar Conservation Area, a newly designated are of protection. The Gauri-Shankar Conservation Area borders the Everest region and Sagarmatha National Park and includes the Khimti and Likhu rivers. Several high passes are crossed along the trekking route of the Numbur Cheese Circuit including Gyajo La 4880 mt (16,010 ft), and Panch Pokhari 4605 mt (15,108 ft) with a nearby collection of five small lakes.
The actual name for this Numbur Cheese Circuit trekking route is derived from Numbur Peak (6959 mt, 22,831 ft), an unclimbed peak that is the protector deity of Solu, the area to the immediate east.
Many peaks are seen soaring into the sky in this region along with mesmerizing Himalayan landscape of rural farmland, deep gorges, glaciers, and glacial lakes as well as a chance to see alpine wildlife.
Numbur Cheese Circuit is a camping trek. High Camp Adventure will arrange a crew of porters to transport provisions and gear, including food and a dining tent, tables, chairs, a toilet tent, and personal sleeping tents. Our skilled chef will provide the day’s meals and in the evening we will enjoy a magnificent camp under the stars, surrounded by the Himalaya and jaw-dropping surroundings while we enjoy a supper and a warm drink.
Our Numbur Cheese Circuit Trek starts after a scenic drive through terraced farmland to the pleasant town of Jiri. The drive takes most of the day and then our trekking begins as we ascend through charming villages and rural farmland over high passes. We break away from the main Jiri to Everest route at a village called Shivalya. From here we head north entering the Gauri-Shankar Conservation Area.
There is a lot to explore in this region and we look forward to guiding you to the highlights.
