- About Us
We take you on the only trek in Nepal that offers views of 5 different Himalayan regions — the Everest, Annapurna, Langtang, Ganesh Himal, and Rolwaling regions. This is the Sailung Trek.
Discover a non-touristy area in the northeastern part of the Kathmandu Valley, where the region’s nature and culture remain unspoiled.
Cross paths with Nepali people from different caste and ethnic backgrounds, and admire the biodiversity of the Sailung hills, the stunning views of the Himalayas, and the natural beauty surrounding you every day.
You will hike between four and six hours per day. At Thulo Sailung, the trek’s highest point, you’ll find one of the country’s best viewpoints of snowcapped Mount Everest surrounded by the awe-inspiring Himalayan mountain range.

The Tamang (Devnagari: tāmāng), or Tamag, are indigenous inhabitants of the Himalayan regions of Nepal. They are one of the major Tibeto-Burman speaking communities and trace their ancestry from Tibet, and even further back to Mongolia. They have a distinct culture, language, and religion. Due to foreign invasions throughout the centuries, they have moved to other parts of South Asia. Today, they inhabit almost all of Nepal’s mountainous regions as well as adjoining regions of India, Myanmar, and Bhutan. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tamang_people
Sherpa (Tibetan:ཤར་པ།) are an ethnic group from the most mountainous region of Nepal, high in the Himalayas.
Most Sherpa people live in Nepal’s eastern regions; however, some live farther west in the Rolwaling valley and in the Helambu region north of Kathmandu. Pangboche is the oldest Sherpa village in Nepal. The Sherpa language belongs to the south branch of the Tibeto-Burman languages; however, this language is separate from Lhasa Tibetan and unintelligible to Lhasa speakers.
The Magar are one of the oldest known tribes in Nepal; however, their origin is unclear. They are believed to be of Tibetan descent because their language and dances are similar to those within the Tibetan culture. Some of the Magar live in the plains where the Himalayan hills begin. Others occupy the lower hills of the Mahabharat Lekh while a few inhabit the high altitude mountain areas.
The Thami were originally a nomadic tribe that settled just to the east of Kathmandu, Nepal’s capital. Legend says that the first Thami couple had seven sons and seven daughters. When the parents could not find suitable marriage partners for their children, they allowed them to intermarry. The Thami tribes are their descendants.
