Useful Information


 Different here relative to other regular treks: The Mundum Trekking Trail is a newly established path that offers visitors an opportunity to experience the unexplored and serene beauty of the area, far from the chaos and commotion of urban life. Here, one can witness the cultural richness of the Kirat and Rai communities, who have been inhabiting the region for centuries. The unique culture of these communities can only be experienced through this trail, making it an unparalleled experience. The breathtaking view of the magnificent Himalayan range is a highlight of the trek, particularly from the Silichung Peak, which towers at an elevation of 4153 meters. Overall, the Mundum trekking experience is a fresh and authentic adventure that leaves an indelible mark in one's memory.

Meals and  Accommodation on the trail: In the initial days of the Mundum trekking trail, it was conventionally considered a camping trek; nevertheless, in recent times, basic amenities such as teahouses have been established throughout the trail. The teahouses offer a comfortable stay with a diverse list of menus to choose from, and individual or shared rooms with comfortable bedding. However, it's important to note that most of the teahouses lack private toilets, which are not attached to the rooms.

Drinking water facilities: Nepal is a naturally rich country in edible water resources and people here consume the water directly from natural sources like rivers, streams, wells, ponds, and many others. Along this trekking trail, we can find many such options for drinking water but such water contains more harsh minerals which are not easy to digest for you. So, for pure and fresh water you are suggested to use the Aqua tab, Stair Pen, or any other water purification elements. Also, in high-altitude regions, teahouses may charge relatively higher for bottled mineral water. 

Electricity and Wi-Fi on the trail: Normally, most teahouses along the Mundum Trekking Trail have access to electricity and basic Wi-Fi. There may be a nominal fee for charging electronic devices and accessing Wi-Fi services.

Best time to take on this trip: The Mundum Trekking Trail is a picturesque journey that provides a unique experience throughout the year. The spring season offers warm weather and vibrant views with colorful blossoms and foliage, making it an ideal time for trekking the Mundum Trail.  Similarly, the autumn season is ideal for those who love a little bit of adventure, as there is a chance of encountering some snow. Whether you prefer a leisurely walk or a challenging hike, the Mundum Trekking Trail can be enjoyed in any season, making it a perfect destination for all types of trekkers.
