The Duganagadi Hidden Fort & Monastery

The Duganagadi Fort is situated at an altitude of 2084 m and was built in 1854 by the Nepali Army to attack the Bhot, a region behind the Himalaya, which is Tibet. The dispute occurred between Nepal and Tibet due to the mistreatment to the Nepali merchants by the Tibetan authorities. During this time many border skirmishes occurred. Finally a truce was signed on March 1856. The Nepal Trade commission was set up in Lhasa to protect the interests of the Nepali merchants. The Dugunagadi Fortress is a maze of crumbling walls strategically situated on a plateau. The views are stunning; during the day one gazes at Tibetan snow-capped peaks and by night, the lights of Khasa, the first Tibetan town north of the Friendship Bridge, glisten throughout the dark evening sky.

Raft: 2 days.

The Bhote Koshi is one of Nepal’s premier adrenaline rivers with more vertical drop and white water than any other in the Kingdom. A 2-day rafting program on the Bhote Kosi with Nepal’s No1. rafting company for safety & reputation is like nothing else on offer in Nepal.

Trekking Itinerary

Day 1:
After brunch at the Borderland, you take a 25 minute bus ride up to the bridge at Larcha, just below the Village of Ermashing. This is the beginning point for the trek. The trail winds through a number of small, interesting Sherpa and Tamang villages. This historic trail was once the trade route between Nepal and Tibet. As you approach the pass, you can catch a glimpse of an old fortress, Dunganagadi. This is where our campsite will be.

Day 02: Bagam – 2400 m. (5 to 6 hours)

After an early breakfast, the staff breaks down the campsite and the porters load up the gear and the packs. From the fortress, you follow the trail down for approximately 30 minutes to the Hindi Khola River. As you descend towards the river, keep your eyes open for Om Mani Padme Hum, rock carvings. At the river crossing you will pass a mill that grinds popcorn and also millet into flour. From the river you gradually travel up to the village of Tasitham. After the village you leave the main trail and climb up to the village of Bagam. In Bagam, you can visit the local Gumba – monastery.

Day 03: Gumba (5 to 6 hours)

The trail leads you through dense, mixed forests to the village of Listikot (2936 m). The fort offers a commanding view of the valley and was built for its strategic location. It was one of the many fortresses built in 1854. From the fort, the trail descends to the village of Gumba, which named itself after its own gumba – monastery. There is a beautiful view here and wide, open fields ideal for camping.

Day 04: The Borderland (5 to 6 hours)

From the monastery there is a 45-minute walk to an old Hindu temple. The temple has an outstanding view of the Bhote Kosi River and the Borderland. This is the start of your final descent towards a home cooked meal and a complementary drink from the Borderlands Arnika Bar.
