Halesi, 223 kilometers from Kathmandu, is where the trek starts. From the beginning, there are benefits. Halesi, undoubtedly the most coveted stop along the trail, is best known as a Hindu, Buddhist, and Kirati sacred place that comes alive during celebrations like Sakela, Shivaratri, Bala Chaturdashi, Ram Nawami, and Teej, among other occasions.

During these festivities, a large number of people visit locations like Panchadevi, Kakani, Bhairavthan, Kalikasthan, Murdhum Cave, Maratika Gompa, and Mahadev Cave. It is thought that Gautam Buddha spent his penance in the Mahadev Cave. The majority of visitors to Halesi enjoy swimming in the Dudhkoshi River at Jayaram Ghat.

Background

The word “Mundhum” has kirati cultural and historical roots; it is an oral manual for the kirati way of life and has more traditional than religious overtones. This fact led to the Mundhum Trail, a brand-new and rapidly developing trekking route in Nepal’s eastern slopes. Hilly regions on the path include Khotang, Solukhumbu, Bhojpur, and Sankhuwasabha.
