The Great Buddhist Master`s Trail and Mahabharat Rhododendron Trail

The representatives of Marron Treks witnessed the inauguration program on the exploration campaign of "The Great Buddhist Master's Trail and Mahabharat Rhododendron Trail" convened at the Timal region of Kavrepalanchowk district. The program was organized by Trekking Agents Association of Nepal- TAAN, on the occasion of Janai Purnima. Both these trails have natural and cultural attractions. If all goes well as planned, the campaign is expected to promote ecotourism. Let's be optimistic about hearing an entirely new and pristine eco-trekking location- The Timal Region, being open to the tourists who are craving to spend a short holiday exploring the rural landscapes and culture of Nepal. On the day, the localites put up several shows exhibiting their ancient cultural practices. The Jhakaris, often referred as the local doctors were the gravity of the show. Coming on to some more snippets on the two trails, the Great Buddhist Master’s Trail commences from Panauti, continuing all the way through Narayansthan (Timal Region Timal Danda) till it finally winds up in Lubughat. The route encapsulates few Buddhist religious sites back to the 8th century; that is how the trail got its name as “the Great Buddhist Master Trail”. Plan to connect the Buddhist trail with the Mahabharat Rhododendreon Trail is on the cards. As quoted by the general secretary of TAAN, Mr. Mohan Lamsal, the Mahabharat Rhododendron Trail will not only be connected to the Buddhist trail but will also be hooked up to another trail from Sindhuligadi which ends in Khopasi. The varied topography carpeted in green, coupled with pockets of human settlements here and there will challenge the trekkers with arduous climbs at one time and tickle them with headlong descents at the other, simultaneously providing ample opportunities to react with the inhabitants. The tourism stakeholders are eagerly eyeing at the promotion and potential of this immaculate would-be tourist destination that has till date been a Cinderella.
