Far West Nepal

The rough route will be
– Taking the bus to Martadi (2 day bus trip)
– Martadi to Rara Lake (and crossing Karnali in between)
– Rara Lake to Simikot via the Great Himalaya Trail
– Simikot to Martadi on a path that is really extremely remote

This is a very adventurous and remote Trek, that I have basically dreamed up myself.
Far-West Nepal is rarely ever visited by tourists since it is so far off the grid. So this is really only for the adventurous trekker who brings their own tent (I have my own one person tent) and does not mind living in very poor conditions.

I do speak Nepali – so there is no real need for a proper guide. So I am rather looking for a trekking partner or porterguide who comes along for the fun of it and the safety in numbers.

Of course it is extremely important to me that we do get along well. And personally I would prefer to trek with another female trekker or guide.

I am sure that whoever is curious when reading this, will have many many questions – shoot away I will try to answer them!

    Badimalika — Adventure in the Grasslands Badimalika is one of the new trekking trails identified and explored by Trekking Agencies’ Association of Nepal (TAAN). Tilak Thapa Magar, joint treasurer of TAAN, was the leader of the exploration team. Offering some of the best natural landscapes, the trail lies in Bajura district in far-western region of Nepal. The major attraction of the trail is the temple of Badimalika which is situated on top of a hillock (4,200 meters). The place wears festive look during Janai Purnima festival (August). Thousands of people from different parts of the country as well as neighboring India visit the temple on this auspicious day. Bajura is rich in terms of culture and tradition of local people. They perform different dances like Deuda, Hudkeuli, Bhuwo and Thadi among others. The trail is operable throughout the year. But heavy snowfall during winter can affect trekkers. Though teahouses are available in lower areas, trekkers are advised to be self-sufficient on food and accommodation. As the area is relatively new, trekkers are suggested to hire local guides as the trail lacks signposts and other infrastructures.
