Milke Danda Rhododendron Trek takes you to Makalu-Kanchenjunga Region in the far eastern part of Nepal. It is a beautiful walk through a region of undisturbed floral beauty, forest landscapes, and stunning Himalayan wilderness. Milke Danda is a 25 km long, high forested ridge that splits the Arun & Tamur River Valleys. It is situated between the elevations of 2580 m and 3580m. The ridge has a great ecological variation encompassing the forests to alpine vegetation and is popular for having the highest diversity of Nepalese Rhododendron species. Recently, an agreement has been reached among the local people, conservationists, and the government agencies to conserve this beautiful remote area and it is a real privilege to be able to experience it.
This trekking journey starts with a direct flight into Biratnagar and drives to Basantpur. Next morning we begin the trek to Milke Danda via Chauki exploring the pristine jungle environment of Gupha Pokhari, with magnificent mountain views of four of the world’s highest peaks. Along the trail, we visit different indigenous settlements of Buddhist Sherpas, Hindu Brahmins and Kirat Rai living in communal harmony. During the trek, one can experience about indigenous people's lifestyle, diverse cultures, socio-economic situation and a complete sustainable eco-trekking of the Makalu-Kanchenjunga Region.
Those trekkers who wish to explore isolated parts of Nepal, Milke Danda Rhododendron trek would be the best. From March to May ( Spring) and September to December ( Autumn) are the best time for Milke Danda trek but one can also do this trek a year round except monsoon ( July- August)
