Cardamom Day Tours are gaining popularity mainly because of opportunities to visit the plantations in remote Nepal and to stay among the villagers in their Homestay environment. Therefore, this tour though recently added, has caught the attention of many visitors willing to travel to Nepal. Large Black Cardamom or “Black Gold”, is one of the preferred cash crops among the farmers in this region, which spreads from eastern Nepal to Sikkim, in India and the westernmost parts of Bhutan. Nepal is the largest producer of large cardamom with major share in the world market, followed by India and Bhutan.
Cardamom Day Tours: Authentic Homestay in Rural Nepal
We organize tours to cardamom plantations with perfect homestay accommodations and excellent scenic diversity in Sankhuwasabha District. We have our own plantation as well and visitors are free to roam and witness this exclusive environment. Being in close proximity of Makalu Barun National Park, our homestay provides glimpses of major Himalayan peaks, lush green forests and hills, deep valleys where cold Himalayan rivers run. We also get to see a plethora of wild flora and fauna.
Naturally, being amidst these rural Nepalese landscapes is a dream most of us yearn to experience one day. For that very reason, we at Himalayan Global Expedition have gone out of our way to bring this itinerary so that our guests can witness the grandeur and potential of Cardamom Farming in the Makalu Region of Eastern Rural Nepal.
We travel to Tumlingtar Airport perched above Arun River. Then we drive on to Khandbari; the district administration town of Sankhuwasabha; and stay overnight. The next day we travel to Num from where we start our trek and reach Thange. After camping overnight under the starry nights, we resume our trek to Mathilo Walung where we spend the next two nights with the local family in their Homestay accommodation. Here we visit the cardamom gardens and take relaxing leisurely strolls of the plantation.
