Olangchung Gola Trek

Olangchung Gola Trek

(30 Nights/31 Days)

overview

The Olang Chu Gola trekking tour is one of the remote ones in the Taplejung district of Nepal. Some of the main attractions of the region are the virgin trails that are yet to be explored, the Hindu-Buddhist mixed ethnicity and the ridges, the trade hubs and the wildlife. The trek along the base camp area takes you to an altitude above 4,500m with spectacular views of the Yalung Glacier, the Lapsang La and many more such tourist attraction sites.

The Olang Chu Gola Trekking 30 Nights 31 Days, begins at Mangmaya and ends at Illam. The fun and adventure begins in Kathmandu itself. Go sight-seeing and trekking along the Ghunsa valley, the highest settlements in the area. Explore the trading centers between Darjeeling in India and Tipta Pass in Tibet. You will be walking on the CroosNango La, a high pass that falls on your way to a beautiful valley. This is one of the most remote treks and it is still not as popular as the other treks in Nepal, hence the number of tourist visits yearly is less. For trekkers looking to explore the true peace and tranquility of Nepal, the Olang Chu Gola Trekking Route is the perfect choice.
