Kerung, at an elevation of 2,774 meters above sea level, stands as a gateway to countless adventures and cultural encounters. The town is located on the east bank of Kyirong Tsangpo, a source stream of the Trishuli River. It has a subtropical mountain monsoon climate with uncommonly warm temperatures and reasonable precipitation. 

Kerung is the starting point for many trips deeper into the Himalayas. From there, you can reach a wide range of trails, experiences, and discoveries. This air route between Kathmandu and Kerung is very different from the usual land routes and makes sure that travelers can start their adventures quickly and in comfort.
