Nepal is by nature very rich in different kinds of natural resources and we are particularly rich in many types of Himalayan Ranges. Many Himalayan ranges are known nationally and internationally. But we still have other nationally and internationally unknown Himalayan ranges as well. Saipal is full of rocky lands , jungles , cold rivers(melted from the snow and flow) , small cold streams and many more natural resources can easily be seen and touched. In our long experience of working with trekkers from different world, we have understood that there are two types of trekkers; one type of trekkers are like that who want easy, well-known and unadventurous area and another type of trekkers like to trek and expedition to unknown , unexplored , difficult , rough and different area.
