Tea-houses rebuilt after the 2015 earthquake, are ready to welcome tourists and share their stories. Similarly, the incredible view of wide range of the Himalayas like Langtang, Ganesh Himal, Manaslu, and Annapurna Massifs makes this region a must visit for those looking for hidden trails of Nepal.
