Milke Dada trekking in Nepal is one of the least travelled trekking trails in Nepal’s Kanchenjunga Conservation Area. In fact, very few trekkers have walked this way up to the wild east of Nepal. Therefore, it’s an ideal route for those seeking silence and solitude. The breathtaking views of Kanchenjunga mountain and some other companions like Mt Everest and Mt Makalu will leave you stunned and give great opportunities for beautiful Himalaya pictures. Moreover, the region of this conservation area surprises you with lovely waterfalls and variety of vegetation. 250 species of plants and alone 25 species of Rhododendron have been recorded in this area. Especially the colorful forest with blooming Rhododendron is a real highlight of the Milke Dada trekking.
Further, Milke Dada and the Kanchenjunga Conservation Area lie in the eastern part of Nepal. This area is much more developed than the western part of Nepal but you will see the typical Nepali lifestyle with the vast cultural diversity. The more we climb up the more hidden and isolated parts we will explore. The warm hospitality of the Sherpa, Limbus, Rai and Lhomis communities will welcome us.
