Numbur cheese circuit trek is one of the newly opened trekking areas. It is the best trek for those who want to escape from the regular tracks. This trek will offer you an impressive view of glacial lakes, terraced rice fields, subtropical forests, and Sherpa village.
Numbur Cheese Circuit trekking route lies in Ramechhap about 190km east of Kathmandu. The Starting point of this trek is Shivalaya, and the one who does not want to fly to Lukla, for the Everest Base Camp trek is also the start. On the way, you will observe the splendid view of the majestic Himalayan peaks including Numburchuli (6959m), Ramdung (5930m), Parchamo (6273m), Sarmche (5255m), Bigphrea Go Num (6666m), chukyima Go (6959m), Everest range, Annapurna south, Gaurishankar and many more.
The route has been recommended for 14 days; however, you can expand or compress the days of trek according to your desire. You will continue your trek through the Likhu Khola valley up to the remote yak grazing land of Ngeju nestled at the foot of the ice-fall fall-down from the Numbur. You will visit the first yak cheese factory established in 1957 BS and the famous Thodung monastery.
It is generally an eco-lodge camping trek. Moreover, this trek will offer you a unique home-stay experience among Sherpa Communities and their unique culture and traditions. And if you are lucky enough, you can catch a glimpse of the elusive snow leopard. The rhododendrons bloom in mass during April and May. You may also see eagles and musk deer as well as Himalayan tahr. If you are beginning your trek during monsoon season, then the route is generally closed so you must continue your journey from Jiri to Shivalaya.
