Simi Gaun is the biggest settlement you will come across during the trek, which is located on top of the hill at an altitude of 2000m giving you a spectacular view of the hills surrounding the area. Traditional homes and fields of seasonal vegetation line the trekking trails, and the entire community exudes an atmosphere of authentic village life. The village is surrounded by lush green forests and as you slowly make your way up the mountains where the thick forest fades with little vegetation. There is a very thin settlement throughout the trail with limited lodging options at specific points. Similarly, Dongang is a popular stop for trekkers as it has a comfortable lodge right beside the river making it a perfect place to rest.
