Numbur Cheese Circuit (NCC)' Located in Ramechhap, around 190 km east of the capital city Kathmandu. The NCC is a 14 to 16 days circuit trail connecting two beautiful river valleys, namely the Khimti and Likhu in the lap of Everest and Rolwaling region. The trail has been named in honor of the yet unclimbed peak Numburchuli (6959m) as well as for one of Nepal’s first yak cheese factories established in 1957.If you want to escape the congestion of commercialized trekking trails and get ‘off-the-beaten track’ then plan your trek to the recently developed trekking route. NCC offers visitors the superb and breathtaking views of majestic Himalayan peaks including Everest range, Numburchuli, Gaurishankar, Jugal and Langtang Himal ranges, pristine nature and unspoiled culture. NCC is mostly an eco-lodge camping trek in addition to the unique home-stay experience among Sherpa communities.
NCC welcomes both domestic and international visitors. The trek encompasses a variety of terrain- deep river gorges, glacial lakes, and terraced rice fields, temperate to alpine vegetation, and Sherpa villages to the towering peaks of Bigphera Go Nup (Pathibara) and Numburchuli. One can also observe Yak Cheese factories and the famous Thodung Monastery on the way. In March and April, rhododendrons bloom in profusion and eagles, musk deer and Himalayan Tahr are a regular sighting! And with a lot of luck, you can catch a glimpse of the elusive snow leopard.
