A freshly opened non-tourist area trekking path in the shadow of Numbur Chuli is called the Numbur Cheese Circuit Trek. The perfect excursion for anyone looking to get off the main path and experience something different. This recently created trekking path is located in Ramechhap, which is located around 190 kilometres to the east of Kathmandu. The path goes to the Likhu Khola glacier, which is guarded by the imposing peaks of Pathibarra and Numburchuli, via deep river gorges, glacial lakes, terraced rice fields, subtropical woods, and Sherpa communities.

This trek provides breathtaking views of the majestic Himalayan peaks including Numburchuli (6959m), Sarmoche (5255m), Ramdung (5930m), Chukyima Go (6959), Parchamo (6273m), Bigphrea Go Nup (6666m), Paniyo Tippa (6696m), Paniyo Shar (6549m), Everest range, Annapurna South, Langtang, Jugal Himal and Gaurishankar.

This trip ascends the Likhu Khola valley to the secluded yak meadows of Ngeju, which are tucked beneath the icefall that cascades from the revered summit of Numbur. While you stroll, you pass Sherpa villages, subtropical woods, rice terraces, glacier lakes, and river gorges. Also, you can go to the renowned Thodung monastery and one of Nepal’s first cheese manufacturers, which was founded in 1957.

Background

Around 190 kilometers east of Kathmandu, in Ramechhap, is where you can find the Numbur Cheese Circuit (NCC). The NCC is a 14–16 day circuit trail that connects the Rolwaling and Everest regions’ Khimti and Likhu river valleys, two stunning river valleys.
