Dhud Kunda Trekking is nice and unique trek that has been designed by a look at the high mountains and remote Solu Khumbu region. Though less high and famous than the neighboring Khumbu, it is likewise inhabited by the friendly Sherpa people. Solu also receives far less trekking traffic than the Khumbu so; it is making more respected and real experience of the trek. Dudh Kunda Lake (which literally means milky lake) is situated at the foot of Number Himal, which is a famous mountain of lower Khumbu region locally known as Shoring Yul Lha, Protector of Solu(lower part of Solukhumbu).
Dudh Kunda Lake is believed to be the abode of Lord Shiva. The devotees believe that taking a dip into the ice-cold lake will absolve them from all their sins and bless childless families with children. The trail takes you through dense forests of rhododendron, pine trees and variety of wildlife, such as mountain goats, bears, leopards, and birds. Amazing views of flora and fauna and experience of diverse cultures of Sherpas, Khaling Rais, Tamangs, Magars, Gurungs, make this journey a lifetime experience. The hospitality of the locals is one of the most heartwarming experiences of the Solu area. Moreover, you will enjoy panoramic Himalayan views of Everest, Number Him, and Everest Himalaya range. This is a journey to a part of the world where very few people have set foot until now, a cultural journey for young to old and for all. So this is one of the famous trekking here in Nepal, where you get to see many types of things during the trek with locality and their hospitality.

There are so many trekking routes in Nepal, but few of them are really popular as it is nicer than many other treks in n Nepal. Everest base camp trekking, Gokyo lake trekking, Annapurna base camp trekking, Annapurna circuit trek, Poon hill trek these are the most popular trekking route in Nepal. If you prefer to visrestrictedarea or, rural area to explore the localities of Nepal there are so many options that we have and you can visit safely. Which season is the best to travel to Nepal? Nepal is a rich in biodiversity as it has many different temperature and climate within a few hour drives. So, as we have four seasons in a year we trek mostly in winter (Sep. to Dec) and spring (Mar. to June). The best season of the year is Sep to Dec, you will have clear weather and spectacular view each day this is why people used to call the best season of the year.
The trekking equipment will depend on where you are going if you are trekking to Everest base camp or Annapurna base camp trek you should bring proper equipment such as down Jacket, Sleeping Bag, Windproof pant so no. You have to bring this trekking equipment which is as below:
Yes, you can easily trek in Nepal because there are so many trekking routes. If you are going to trek in Nepal for the first time you can make the easy trek to Poon hill, or Langtang trek these are an easy walking trek. If you are adventurous trekkers you can go to Everest base camp, Gokyo trekking, Chola pass trekking, Annapurna base camp, Annapurna circuit trek etc. so you consult with your local travel agent when you decide to go to Nepal which is the best area up on your pace.
Yes, you can get an experienced guide in Nepal if you book your trip with trekking company or agent. You have to check very well who is going with you through your agent than figure out he is a nice guy or not. There are so many options but manly package trekking and day ways salary base trekking.
There are so many different trekking and travel company who organize all trekking and touring activities in Nepal and they have their own strategy and price but the fact of the trek is the same so if you are in Nepal to make Everest base camp trekking and if you are alone it cost comparatively more than groups, in general for solo trekkers Kathmandu to Kathmandu 12 days Everest base camp trek cost 1299 USD and if you are two people going there cost 1199 USD. If you are budget travelers still you can save some money with this cost but this price is just enough to do all activities during your 12 days time up to the mountain. you have more than 8 people in your group one get free trip while you are in Nepal except for your domestic flights.
Nepal tourism board published some rules and regulation for porters who used to work generally with tourist they carry 25 kg , so in general you will get one porter for two trekkers it means one trekker need to make their weight about 12.5 kg and if you have extra clothes or any extra things that you bought from your country you can leave in hotel locker in Kathmandu once you are back you will get it, it is safe.
Flying to Lukla we will be in a small plane whereas just 14 to 16 people in one plane it is small this is why there is short of strict rules need to be just 15 kg per person as a luggage and small day bags as a hand carry you can take with you. if you have any extra things in your bag you can leave in Kathmandu hotel before you leave than it helps a lot to repack and to follow the rules. Still, after repacking your bag have more than 15 kg you have to pay 5 USD per kg than you can fly in or out.
Tipping things is not compulsory but it is highly expected from field staff during your trek in Nepal such as waiter Driver, Guide porters. Mainly if you are in Nepal and doing more than week trip with guide or with porter you can tip about 100 USD for guide and 80 USD for porter but if they make your special trip with lots of information take caring and you feel safe all the time with them than you can add more tip on top of that.
