Why do the Millennium Trek?

Here are some reasons why you should do the Millennium Trek:

  • Authentic Food:

Special Local Food with home-grown and Organic Ingredients.

Due to the commercialization of Trekking Routes and a high volume of tourists, it is often difficult to find locally made and organic food while trekking but it’s not the same case when it comes to the Millennium Trek. The food in this region is Local and Organic.

  • Culture

Dhor Durbar

Nepal was, in the past, divided as 2200–2400 rajya (राज्य); independent states.
It is said that the ‘Dhor Rajya’ (ढोर राज्य) was one of the independent states and that the Dhor Durbar/ Dhor Mulkot is where the monarchs of the Khand Rajhya reigned from.

The Khand rajhya is said to have been reigned by 12 monarchs and the last king who reigned the kingdom was ‘Kriti Khand’. The kingdom got combined to the Gorkha Kingdom (present day western Nepal) in 1837 AD.

The Dhor Durbar or what remains of the palace is 30 minutes walk away from Rajasthal. Therefore, for those following the itinerary for the millennium trek as per mentioned in the website, this historic place can be visited on the 2nd day of the Millennium Trek.

This site is a preserved heritage site and is best suited for visits at early morning for the sunrise or for sunsets in the evening.

Nearby to the Dhor Durbar is the Khadga Kalika Mandir.

As this palace is suited atop a hill and allows a magnificent view of the Himalayan range, it is also a very popular picnic spot for locals and other visitors alike.

Dhorbarahi Temple

One of the major attractions of the Millennium Trek is the ‘Dhor Barahi Temple’.

This destination is situated at Dhorphirdi, Tanahun and can be reached on the first day of the hike if you’re following the itinerary that’s been posted on our website.

This temple, tucked at a place surrounded by natural beauty houses a four armed idol of the Goddess Barahi along with idols of Ganesh and other gods and is regarded as one of the most sacred Hindu temples of Nepal.

As mentioned Himavatkhanda Purana, it has been said that this temple was established by the goddess herself. The bells in the temple date back to 1876 AD.

As a goddess, Dhor Barahi is considered to have the power to fulfill all the wishes of her devotees and as such, many animals are sacrificed to her every month. One thing to remember about sacrificing however is that roosters are forbidden as sacrificial animals. Likewise sacrifices are not performed during the festivals of Aunsi, Ramanavami, and Ekadashi.

Similarly, present within the premises of the temple premises is a pond which is watered by a spring that appears and begins to flow by itself. It is believed that this phenomenon is testament to the Goddess’ power.

Millennium Cave

One of the biggest attractions of this Trekking route is the Millennium Cave.

The Millennium Cave which is central to the Millennium Trekking route lies at Ghaderi Village and is one of the lesser-explored caves of Nepal.

It is located near to the Sadhi River that flows crossing the borders of Syangja and can be reached on the third day of the hike if you’re following the itinerary that’s been posted on our website.

It is taken as one of the ideal caves of South Asia as two waterfalls cascade down the walls of the cave and unlike many caves with waterfalls where the water dries up during the summer, the flow of waterfalls located inside the cave remains the same throughout the year.

Surrounded by the forest, the cave is submerged in the melody of Sadhikhola and the chirping of birds so getting to the place is an experience in itself.

Different idols of gods and goddesses and bats in a heavy number can be observed inside the cave. A shivaling also stands inside as the cave is observed as a form of Lord Shiva.
