Numburchuili is a 6959m peak in Nepal.

Regions

Numburchuili lies on the border of Ramechhap and Solukhumbu.

Other destinations

The Numbur Cheese Circuit is a new trekking route in the lap of Numburchuili. On this trek you get close enough to drink the pure glacial water at the base of the peak, following the Likhu Khola Valley until you reach the remote yak pastures of Ngeju nestled at the foot of the ice-fall tumbling from the sacred summit of Numbur. The ancient Buddhist Shrine of Kau Gumba lies above the tree-line in the upper Likhu Khola Valley enclosed by a great sweep of high rock and snow peaks. Dudhkunda, the 'Milky Lake' rests in the heart of the basin, surrounded by tumbling glaciers and large moraines.

Understand

A mini-Everest - 'Numbur' is often mistaken for Everest when viewed from Nagarkot, due to the similarity in their shapes.
