Jaljala Trek

Jaljala Trek is the newly opened trekking area since October 2009 which is situated in Rolpa district in the Midwestern part of Nepal. Rolpa district is one of the least developed districts of Nepal in terms of infrastructure but this place has immense potential to be one the best tourist destinations of Nepal there as it goes through the Dhorpatan hunting reserve, which is only one hunting reserve in Nepal. In the Nepalese context, Rolpa district is also known for the historic place as it’s the main epicenter of the Maoist revolution in Nepal that took lives of more than 10,000 Nepalese people.

Jaljala Trek is more like a village to village trekking. During this trek we will pass through the green meadows, Rhododendron forest, and can view the picturesque village, different varieties of Flora and Fauna, amazing mountain views, including Mt. Sisne, Mt. Putha, Mt. Dhaulagiri, Mt. Annapurna and much more. This region is mainly inhabited by Magar Committee, which is rich in their culture and tradition. Not only Magar, but we can also see the settlements of Chhetri, Newar, and Thakuri people as well.
