The village stands on a hillock to the south of Bheri River, which at one time was supervised collection center of tolls for the trading caravans. Overnight stay at tea house lodge/ camp.
From Tarakot, we follow the path to upstream Tarap Chu River, crossing the bridge and crossing the same river twice.
