Gurkhas Khukuri Making Tour

7 Days

The tour package is based on a traditional weapon of Nepal, known to the world as “The Khukuri”. Khukuri is a curved knife, the national symbol of Nepalese Army.

After your arrival in Kathmandu, you will be addressed and welcomed by representatives from Asian Adventure Trips. You will then be transferred to the hotel booked for your comfortable accommodation.

Our trip starts from Kathmandu; it is a five-hour drive along the highway, followed by a two-hour off-road drive to the Khukuri making village. The village is called as Dhamilikuwa Village. We stay with a very nice village family, participating with them in cooking and other jobs.

Early in the morning, we go into the jungle with a Kami person, who is involved in making your Khukuri. We spend one full day in the jungle making charcoal, which is essential in making the Khukuri by hand. Lunch will be provided by the village family in the jungle, and in the evening we will return to the village.

Today is hammering day, and you can also participate in hammering with the Kami person if you choose to !!

To finish making one Khukuri takes one full day. So as per our group size the trip can vary in length. Other attractions include swimming in the Chepe River, which is fifteen minutes’ walk from the village. On your free day, you can go hiking up Rainashkot Hill. It is three hours hard walking, but it is well worth the effort as from the top you can see many beautiful mountains and a magnificent landscape.

Completing our adventurous trip, we return back to capital city today. Comfortable bus ride of around 6 hrs brings you to Kathmandu, Where we can share our memories and experiences of the trek. Accommodation is managed in Kathmandu by Asian Adventure Trips

Before your planned return from Kathmandu, Asian Adventure Trips Organizes farewell dinner for the whole trekking team including guides and porters. We share our experiences with each other and also have an opportunity to plan our next trip to Nepal with Asian Adventure Trips. As per your departure schedule from Kathmandu, Asian Adventure Trips will provide airport transport facility from your hotel.
