Kathmandu – Ngadi (930m)|Lodge.
Morning breakfast around 7am at the Hotel, then board on the privately reserved 4WD jeep to drive to Ngadi (930m). Ngadi is a small town located on the bank of Marshyangdi River (about 220km). The road upto Besisahar is finely built all-season road; after Besishar it’s a seasonal. During the rainy season, the drive only upto Ngadi will be possible without too much dirt and muddy crossing. This is under-construction site.
Overnight at the lodges – to which we have termed as the “Lodge”. All your accommodations during trek will be on the similar ones. The comfort and facilities may be vary from lodge to lodge but every lodge will have one restaurant for the in-house guests' dining, therefore each one is more than sufficiently able to provide hot meals and drinks, offer good accommodations and friendly environment with cleanliness.
During your journey, your breakfast is provided everyday in the same lodge where the night is spent (time around 7 to 8). Lunch around in 11 to 12 almost everyday and dinner in the same lodge where the night is spent. This will be continued on the days to come while you will be in the mountain.
Ngadi to Jagat (1300m/6hrs trek)|Lodge
There is a road connection between Ngadi to Jagat – but as said above it is only the seasonal road. So the drive may be not possible. We believe that the trek should be more than pleasant! So no use in case any jeep available to drive to.
The jeep available here are public jeeps used for the local passengers in any case your want to use. As long as the road condition is OK such jeeps are available. So you may choice whether take the jeep or do trek.
If taken jeep, trek will be quicker. You may decide stay at Jagat or go further is totally upto you; just talk with your guide and let you decision to know the porters.
