Need to Know
There are many "tea houses" along the way that provide food, water, and rooms. All water in Nepal is sketchy, so bring a filter or chlorine tablets to treat it. Weather can be fickle, so bring gear for heat, cold, and rain. A guide for this trek is highly recommended as they will keep you safe and oriented.
Continue your journey onward to Forest Camp. The trail here is covered by rhododendron trees and gradually progresses upwards via a doublewide dirt path. You'll likely notice water buffalo and locals trekking up as well. Before you reach Forest Camp, there are some great views on the left side of the trail.
