Dudh Khunda Lake trek is new and unique trek that has been designed by look at the high mountains and remote Solu Khumbu region. Though less high and famous than the neighboring Khumbu, it is likewise inhabited by the friendly Sherpa people. Solu also receives far less trekking traffic than the Khumbu so; it is making more cherished and real experience of the trek. Dudh Kunda Lake (which literally means milky lake) is situated at the foot of Numbur Himal, locally known as Shoring Yul Lha, Protector of Solu.
Dudh Kunda Lake is believed to be the abode of Lord Shiva. The devotees believe that taking a dip into the ice cold lake will absolve them from all their sins and bless childless families with children. The trail takes you through dense forests of rhododendron, pine trees and variety of wildlife; such as mountain thars, bears, leopards and birds. Amazing views of flora and fauna and experience of diverse cultures of Sherpas, Khaling Rais, Tamangs, Magars, Gurungs, make this journey a lifetime experience. The hospitality of the locals is one of the most heartwarming experiences of the Solu area. Moreover, you will enjoy panoramic Himalayan views of Everest, Numbur, and Everest Himalaya range.
