Lapchi Kang Milarepa Cave trek takes you to the exciting secreted corners of Nepal located at the border with Tibet. Lapchi offers an admirable trekking route in the high mountain region. There are many pleasing sights. The serenity of Lapchi makes this place unique from all other destinations. Moreover, the art and architecture of the monasteries and the cave, the scenic beauty of the spiritual mountain, and other natural aspects of this high alpine region make the region an excellent destination for travelers.

The least visited and isolated Lapchi Kang region is a famous pilgrimage site for Buddhists. It is where the famous Tibetan Yogi Milarepa lived for a long time in a cave. However, this place's alluring natural beauty and ethnic and cultural activities lure every trekker.

Milarepa is a great figure in Tibetan Buddhism. He was a Buddhist yogi, but he was also a great poet and magician in Tibet. To attain enlightenment, he did meditation in many isolated regions of the Nepali Himalayas. Among many, Milarepa Cave is the most hidden and unexplored cave on the Nepal Tibet border. He performed many miracles in Lapchi and left behind sacred marks like his footprints. Lapchi Kang and Milarepa Cave trekking let you explore one of the oldest monasteries, Lapchi Kang, and the hidden cave dedicated to Milarepa, Milarepa Cave. Inside the cave, you can see the bronze statue of Milarepa, which is very sacred to Buddhists.

The amazing landscape of Ama Bamare Himal to the Lapchi Karhka gives the snow leopard the perfect habitat for survival. According to the ancient literature of Hindus and Tibetan Buddhism, there are three holy mountains in Jambudivpa: Mt Kailash, Mt Tsari, and Mt Lapchi Kang. Holy Lapchi Mountain is located in the eastern part of Nepal at about 4850m. You will get spiritual peace and eternal happiness by joining this spiritual trek. Explore the Mount Lapchi Kang and Milarepa Cave once in a Lifetime.

FAQs

  • Q1. What is the best time to do Lapchi Kang Milarepa Cave Trek?

    Spring and Autumn season is considered the best to do trekking in Nepal and so is this trek. Spring falls between March to May in Nepal. During the Spring season, the climate here gets warmer and more stable. Flower in the Lapchi Valley starts to bloom. While trekking you can see the blooming colorful flowers on the way. The awe-inspiring views of snow mountains will add more excitement to your journey. Moreover, you will also get a wonderful opportunity to witness various wildlife.

    Well, Autumn is the peak tourist season in Nepal. Autumn lasts from September, October, and November in Nepal. The dry and clear weather during this month increases the visibility of the mountains and the surrounding environment. Next to the Spring March, April, and May, it is the best season to do Lapchi Kang Milerapa Cave Trek.

    It is possible to do the trek in the Summer and winter seasons also. However, doing the trekking during these months means you will have to face various troubles and risks on your way. During the summertime, the temperature gets hotter. In addition, heavy rains increase the risks of flooding in the Valley. Also, Lapchi trekking in the winter season, there is a risk of heavy snowfall that may cause a serious problem.

  • As Lapchi Trekking is protected by the Gaurishankar Conservation Area so, Gaurishankar Conservation Area(GCA) special permit is required for Lapchi Kang and Milarepa Trek. Further, you should also carry the Trekkers Information Management System(TIMS) card.
