    Jugal Himal is the nearest Himal that lies in the northeast part of Kathmandu valley. It is situated in the Sindhupalchowk District of Nepal at an altitude of 3800m high from sea level forming the border between Nepal and Tibet. On the way to Jugal Himal Trek, we can witness a fantastic landscape, mixed culture, monasteries, etc. Jugal Himal Trek is a marvelous trek through remote traditional Tamang villages and luxuriant forests. 

    Jugal Himalaya region has high passes, superb mountain views, scenic villages, deep forests with beautiful Panch Pokhari (five lakes), and Bhairab Kunda Lake, a remarkable display of wildflowers, a large quantity of wildlife, and of course friendly local people. Trek to Jugal Himal takes you to the heart of Langtang, Gaurishankar, and the Rolwaling Himalayan range. 

    Lying near Kathmandu valley, the Jugal Himal trek is popular with enthusiastic trekkers all around the world. Ranging from 870m to 4050m, the trail envelopes from tropical forests to high alpine lakes. The route to the Jugal Himal trek weaves through the narrow path and forested ridges. But due to lack of lodges and other shelter facilities, only very few trekkers travel to Jugal Himal. The trek is more preferable to those who don't like meeting many tourists and spending time in crowded villages and best for those who want to experience the view of mesmerizing mountain ranges near Kathmandu valley.
