New Trail In Eastern Part

Abhishek Subedi August 8, 2020

The newly explored off-the-beaten trail in eastern Nepal comprises natural beauty, rich biodiversity, Kirati-Rai civilization, culture, lifestyles, and wide-ranging landscape view of Himalayan, mid-hill and Terai regions. The area is largely inhabited by Kirati- Rai communities for centuries, adjoining are Brahman, Chhetri, Newars, Magars and Dalit settlements. According to an expert, Mundum is a verbal scripture of Kirati people that elucidate rituals, lifestyles and traditions. Since ancient times these hills (Temke, Mehrung, Maiyung, Salpa Pokhari) were pilgrimage pathways used by Mundumi (Kirati guru) to reach the sacred Silichung hill. The trail meets Arun Valley trek at Salpa Bhanjyang, the footsteps of the first Everest explorers. Few guidebooks have mentioned that HW Tillman had walked from Hile to Lukla through Arun valley in 1950. It takes you through the lush green landscape of the mid-hill region, with steep climbs and strenuous paths particularly upon reaching Siluchung hill.

1. Tempke Danda Hill

The next morning, we set off on our hike to Tempke Hill. The hill is famous for its religious importance and also a popular tourist destination among the local people. During our hike up to Temke, we were greeted by the dazzling sunrise. The gradual ascending hike of two and half hours south from Chakhewa is rewarding. It is a steady uphill hike through the lush rhododendron forest. Temke Hilltop is situated at 3010m from the sea level and is commonly shared by Bhojpur and Khotang district. There are Mahadev Temple and Jogi Cave nearby and its surrounding is a breathtaking place to stroll around. It’s a wonderful hilltop trip, one I will regret if I miss it.
