Overview

Nepal feels less explored the more you explore it. The country is a bucket of many beautiful trekking trails. If you check the bucket randomly, you will find many less explored trails; Just the way you’ve seen this Mundum Trail, an unexplored, wild, and off-the-beaten trekking in Nepal.

Yes, Mundhum Trail is a newly explored trekking trail located in Far East Nepal. Mundum means the holy book of the Kirati People. As the trek goes through the lands of the Kirati People, it is named Mundum Trail. Inaugurated in 2018 by the Government of Nepal, Mundum Trail is a perfect trekking route for the remote cultural and pristine natural trek. By choosing this trek, you’ll travel the Eastern hills of Nepal, home to the Kirati People, one of the Sino-Tibetan ethnic groups. 

On this trail of Mundum, you’ll walk to witness the snow-capped mountains, breathtaking landscapes, lush forests, vast pastures, iconic hamlets, chiming rivers, waterfalls, lakes, sacred sites, and more. The trek has excellent views of Lhotse, Everest, Nuptse, Chamlang, Number, Makalu, Kanchenjunga, and more if you are a mountain lover. 

Above everything, you’ll touch and explore a culturally vibrant place. The region is one of the last places where you can meet the Kirat ethnic. You will get to stay in the Kirat-rai communities of the trail. And that is the best way to gain insights into indigenous culture, tradition, and lifestyle. Those villages you will explore on Mundhum Trail, one of the virgin trekking routes, have been there since old age. So this trek is an escape for you if you love knowing foreign people and cultures.

The Mundhun Trail is a relatively easy route to take. You do have to be a super trekker for this trek. However, you’ll have to walk several uphills to reach ridges and hilltops. There will be nights when you have to settle in a tented camp. Otherwise, Mundhum Trail Trekking, one of the less explored trails, is a comfortable tour. It is a 13 days trip where you have to walk on average 4-5 hours of slow walking on trekking days.
