Nevertheless , there were very few  trekking tours in the past  that included this aerea, therefore the whole region is still very rural and natural. It is a fanastic  place  where you can  get a glimpse  of  the life  in the Himalayas in its original form . The trek from the  ChilimeKholaRiver to the BhungreKholaRiver will introduce  you to  the heart of the Ganesh  Himal.
