An enthralling Tara hill top trekking takes you off the beaten path and through the stunning Gurung Village, terraced fields, alpine pastures and blooming rhododendron forest during spring season up to Parje Village. Tara Hill Top Trekking (3056m) offers mesmerizing views of the Eastern Annapurnas, including Annapurna IV (7,525 meters) Annapurna II (7,939 meters) and the hulk of Lamjung Himal (6,932 meters), and another dozen or more summits. All are impressively above 6,500 meters while, sliding down from the heights of Annapurna II, is the huge icefall and glacier that feed into the Mardi Khola. The large village of Sikles is dominated by Gurungs, one the ethnic groups found only in Nepal. Many Gurungs have served in the British Army as Gurkhas.
Trek Nepal Himalayas will be more than happy to organize Tara Hill Top trekking and certainly trekking in Nepal with us will be a lifetime experience.

Head towards Pokhara either by car or plane. The short flight gives you a spectacular bird’s eye view of the Himalaya or the drive on the Prithivi Highway takes you along the Trisuli River. Enjoy traditional Nepali cuisine (dal bhaat) in Mugling. After an hour’s drive, the road leads you along the side of the Marsyandi River to Pokhara. Get the last essentials needed for your trip and take in the atmosphere of Lakeside Pokhara in the evening.
An hour’s drive from Pokhara takes us to Bhurjung Khola, from where we start our trek to Ghalegoan. Along the route we will see the place where the local village men go hunting for honey. The area is also culturally rich and displays a diverse variety of ethnic traditions. The housing and farming styles gives you in-depth insight into life in the Himalayan foothills of Nepal.
Today’s trek is mostly uphill. Leaving behind the well-established tourism village of Ghalegoan, we trek upwards along the upper reaches of the Seti River towards Tara Tops. On route we will stop at a view point from where we get panoramic views of the Himalaya including Lamung Himal, Annapurna South, Fish Tail, and Annapurna III and IV. The views of the Himalaya are truly amazing and a highlight of the journey. Once returning down, you can also get dramatic views of the Pokhara Valley. Continue trekking onwards to our overnight stop at Tara Tops. Tara Tops is a unique and beautiful campsite.
Leaving behind the campsite at Tara Tops we bid farewell to the breathtaking views and trek mostly downhill through magnolia and rhododendron forests towards Parche in the lower foothills.
Today is for exploring the area around Sikles, which is a Gurung-dominated region. The Gurkha soldier, usually recruited from this area, is renowned for his hardiness and skill in battle. We explore the area and trek to another view point where we can again get stunning view of the mountains and glacier which roll down from Annapurna II, Annapurna IV, and Lumjung Himal. We return to Parche for the night for evening entertainment by the local community.
Trekking from Parche, we head towards Lamakhet and the main road. The trek is mostly downhill through rural farming lands and at times passes alongside the Mardi Khola River. From Lamakhet, it’s about an hour and a half drive back to Pokhara along some rough and ready roads.
