Dudh Pokhari Trekking in Nepal
Dudh Pokhari Trek offers the first-hand experience of the ethnic lifestyle of indigenous people in a village called Dudh Pokhari in Lamjung district of Nepal, named for its milky lake.
Dudh Pokhari refers to milky lake; the lake is in the Lamjung district of Nepal. Hence, the village itself has been named after the famous lake. The village of Dudh Pokhari lies at an altitude of 4560m above the sea level. Dudh Pokhari is a long ridge stretching from south from Himalchuli (7896m) and near to Boudha peak (6672m).
This Dudh Pokhari trekking is a short trek, but offers many chances to enjoy the up close view of the amazingly beautiful mountains such as Mt. Manaslu (8163m), Himal chuli (7896m), Dr. Harka Gurung peak (7871m), Annapurna ranges including Manang valley and Lamjung Himal. Apart from the natural and geographical aspects, the village is equally rich in-terms of cultural aspects too. One of the major inhabitants of the village are Khaling Rai’s who have their own language and ethnic lifestyle, besides Gurung communities are also in existence.
According to legends, some three thousand years back the Tamu community now known as Gurung entered this area through Namun Bhanjyang from Tibet & settled there. Tamu community had their own king in the ancient days whose palace is still there for everyone to see; therefore, this place is also known as Tamuwan. Hence, the trek in the Dudh Pokhari offers the first-hand experience of the ethnic lifestyle of these indigenous people.
