About this trip

Numbur cheese circuit trek is a new trek in Nepal. Numbur cheese circuit trek is completely non-spoiled trekking trail of Nepal, camping near by the village and walking through local villages of Sherpa and other community is beautiful experience. This trekking trail leads through Panch-pokhari and Jattapokhari, which is more than just beautiful. Jattapokhari & Panchpokhai is of religious belief among Hindu and Buddhist, and once in a year fest takes place in this holy lake. 


Apart from 2 major lakes famous as pilgrimage site; Numbur cheese circuit trek will give opportunity to explore other lakes in route. This off the beaten circuit trail is also famous for its 5 lakes. However trekking trail with 5 lakes is named as Jattapokhari circuit trek.

5 lakes of the trail are Bhale Pokhari, Jor Pokhari, Baulaha Pokhari, Jattapokhari and Panch pokhari. Indeed, there are other small lakes which can be seen along the route of Jattapokhari circuit route.

Accomodation in this trek

 Relying on the fact that, NCC is a off the beaten trekking route – there are no proper tea house all along the trekking route. Trekking in Numbur cheese circuit is camping plus tea house trekking. In the beginning of the trekking and towards the end of the trek there are tea houses where you can spend nights in the local lodge or homestays.

As a camping trek – luxury trek in this route will cost you extra and this extra cost depends on how comfortably you want to trek. But nothing is impossible. Enough trekking staff and good trekking gears with perfect management – wilderness of NCC trekking route can be accommodated as per your need and budget frame.

In contrast with camping plus tea house trek accomodation – remoteness of the trekking route is overwhelming.

Nature and Herbs

 Apart from lake and people this trekking path is extensively rich in herbs and shrubs. One of super virgin and off the beaten trail of Nepal Himalaya Numbur cheese circuit trek is best destination to see lush green forest with varieties of herbs and plants.

Red and white Rhododendron is another eye catching property of jungle on the trail to this cheese circuit. Mt. Numbur and Pathivara are the named Himalaya on the trail but you can see more other unnamed Himalaya during the trekking to this virgin trekking circuit.
