Sailung Indegineous People Trek
Click to Enlarge
The word Sailung is made of two Nepali word Sai(One hundred) and Lung(Windy Hill) which means one hundred Windy hills. This trek takes you to Thulo Sailung (3100 m), its highest elevation, from where you will see a vast Himalayan range from Makalu to Dhaulagiri. In additional, this is the only trek from where you will have a glimpse of Tarai - the lowland of Nepal as well as the world's highest - Mt. Everest (8848 m).
While trekking in this area, we walk high up on spectacular ridges in an area inhabited by Tamangs - an indigenous Buddhists community whose religion is a fusion of Buddhist Lamaism and the Shamanist Bon culture. It is common for a village to have a Lama and a Jhankri (Shaman). Except Tamang, you will have encountered with different ethnic people and experience about socio-economic situation, life-style, and their professions. Moreover, the main attraction of this area is, it gives a wide range of exploration to the trekkers.
