At the moment, the project is targeted for the village of Nuwakot, situated at 2790 ft. above sea level and is 75kms North West of Kathmandu, 5 kilometers from Trisuli Bazaar which is the last little town on the way to the Langtang area. Nuwakot used to be the capital of Nepal before 200 years when Kathmandu Valley was not unified into present Nepal.The village is inhabited by the mixed community of Brahmins, Chettries, Newars, Gurungs, Magars, Tamangs, Thakuries and many other scheduled people. The main core forms a population of around 2000 people. It is also surrounded by other villages and settlements in all sides. The place consists of some historical monuments and is rich in cultural heritages.
I chose Explore Himalaya for this expedition as I believe we will be looked after quite well and our expedition will run smoothly.
