At just 40km and an hour drive from the capital city Kathmandu, Balthali village is located in the Kavrepalanchok District of central Nepal. The Balthali village trek is a short trip for the trekkers who wants to explore the beauty of nature and the wildlife in a short period of time. The trek offers traditional, cultural and religious values untouched by modernization. The houses are built in a Pagoda style with different colors which is quite rare in this present world. The village is mostly settled by the Newar and Tamang community so, you will have a opportunity to explore their history, culture and tradition. Throughout the trek, you will enjoy the view of dense green forest covered with rhododendron, pine and saal trees. This short trek will offer you majestic views of the Himalayan ranges like Langtang Himal, Ganesh Himal, Mt. Manaslu, Mt. Gaurishankar and Mt.Everest on the northern horizon. Since the trek is short, you are not required to have any past trekking experiences to enjoy this trek.
