The mountainous road (Lamosangu - Jiri Road) climbs up to 2600 m altitude providing the spectacular panoramic view of the mountains to the east and west before gently descending to Charikot. The place Charikot is situated at 2000 m altitude from sea level and 1000 m above the Tama Koshi river valley.

Your next day or second day in trekking: After a nice breakfast trek will start targeting toward Kalinchowk Hill Top, north-west of Charikot by gently climbing up for Gairi Kharkha Camp via Deurali. Most part of the area is surrounded by green forests with fresh air and shadowy ways. On occasions you will see several kinds of flowers in the forest - red and dark red rhododendrons - and hear the sweet voice of several kinds of birds. You will be lost in joys with this beautiful nature and you will forget all your boredoms by nature beauty.

3rd Day:
Your third day will start with spectacular views of the Numbur Himal with range to Gauri Shankar. Till your lunch Camp at Kuri, the area is covered with rhododendron forests with white color rhododendrons in full bloom and spectacular landscapes with other several kinds of flowers.
