Hidden Himalayan trek is the best part of the great Himalayan trial which plunged under the western region of Nepal. This route was established as a trading route in the ancient period, sole traders used to trade salt following this route up to Tibet border crossing Humla. After the development of transportation and infrastructure, salt trading through this route was stopped, so for some decay, this route stay silent. Along with the development of tourism industry this route was brought in used but not as a trading route. This route was re introduced as one of the best and adventurous trekking trial.
The adventurous parts of every location trekking are different and difficult high passes. So, like another trekking route, this route has also two interesting passes, first Bhubre Khola pass located at the height of 3412m. That we have to face between Sun Khada and Rodikot and Chankheli Lagna pass at the height of 3127m. That we can find between Jojimara and Dharke Khola camp.
Natural beauty and view
This trekking route is like green postures fade into the barren land cut by a deep valley. Ups and down is the best aspect of this trek. Field with a different color, few green hills forest fade into the isolated glacial valley leading to high pass are also the element that makes this trek interesting and adventurous. Rara national park is also the best and famous national park of Nepal which is part of this trek. Rara national park is the largest lake located at high altitude.
