A new trekking ‘Mundum trekking has been explored to promote tourism in Khotang, Bhojpur, Sankhuwasabha and Solukhumbu areas of Eastern Nepal. The footpath has been explored with the joint efforts of Nepal Tourism Board, TAN and Temke Mayung Municipality.
The explored footpath starts from Chakheva Bhanjyang of Temke Mayung village municipality of Bhojpur and reaches Silichung Danda via Dhotre Bhanjyang, Mayung Danda, Hanspokhari, Satdobato, Ravadhap and Salpa Bhanjyang. It takes a total of 9 days to walk back to the same road. On the way back, you can reach Bhojpur Bazaar from Mayung via Sunta.
Chakheva Bhanjyang, Dhotre and Salpa Bhanjyang along the footpath have basic food and accommodation facilities. So for now, camping trekking in this area seems to be necessary. Chakheva Bhanjyang, Dhotre Bhanjyang, Satdobate, Ravadhamp and Salpa Bhanjyang are suitable places to stay while starting the trek. On the way back, you have to stay in Hayakule, Mayung Danda and Bhojpur Bazaar.
On the footpath, Kirati lifestyle, from Dudhkund (Numbur) to Mount Everest, Makalu, Kumbhakarna and even Kanchenjunga can be seen. From the climax point of the footpath, Silichung (4,1153 m), these mountains catch the eye. It takes 4 hours to reach Silichung from Salpa Bhanjyang. You usually have to walk 6 to 8 hours a day on foot.
Why is it called Mundum trekking?
There is a Kirati settlement in this area. Kirati’s Veda is Mundum. The oral text Mundum describes the Kirati lifestyle and culture. Ramesh Rai, chairman of Temke, Mayung, Salpa Silichung Tourism Promotion and Development Center, said that there is an old tradition of pilgrimage from Temke to Mayung and Silichung. That is why we have named it Mundum trekking. In terms of height, the Mundum footpath is a footpath that can be walked from teenagers to the elderly.
We have also done trail marking of the post journey at Lauri Danda and Silichung Danda need to be improved. He said that we are preparing to publish the map, poster and booklet of Mundum trekking soon after consulting the concerned bodies.
