Balthali is a paradisiacal valley nestled amid forested hills, its floor coated with golf-course-green rice paddies whose swirling contours form a work of art. The village of the same name has no centre, being strung out along the road and elsewhere. The misty mornings here are a particular delight, their peace broken only by the crowing of roosters far and wide. This is a largely undiscovered destination. You’ll feel like you have gone back 50 years.
After breakfast we walk three hours and reach the enchanting Balthali village offering excellent mountain views at an altitude of 1,730m. On arrival at Balthali Village we visit a typical Tamang village, Dada Gaun, where a Buddhist Community lives. It is very traditional and secluded from the modern world. Here people and animals live together side by side. We then walk to Pada Gaun (2100m), from where one can have extremely good views of the whole Himalayan range to north and beautiful green forest of Mahabharat. Then walk on to Karnali, a hamlet of nature, and follow the banks of the Ladku River back to the resort.
