February 28, 2024

The Manaslu Circuit Trek is a popular trekking route in Nepal, and one of the villages along this route is Namrung. Recently, a new local attraction has been added to the village that is drawing attention from visitors – the Milerapa Park. This park is home to several impressive statues, including 16-inch-tall figures of Marpa Lotsāwa, Gampopa, Milarepa, and Shakyamuni Buddha. These statues are intricately designed and are a sight to behold. 

The location of the park has also been given a new name by the locals, who have called it Thukjeling. This name reflects the cultural significance of the park and adds to its charm. Visitors to Namrung village can now enjoy the beauty of the Milerapa Park and learn more about the rich history and culture of Nepal.

The Namrung village has recently received a significant addition to its local attractions, in the form of a new park that is ideally located for trekkers heading towards Larkya Pass or Mount Manaslu expeditions. This park was established with the generous aid of a prominent local social worker, Mr. Sonam Gyalgen Lama, who worked tirelessly to make this project a reality.

The inauguration ceremony of this park was a grand affair that spanned three days, marked by vibrant cultural celebrations and divine chants of Buddhist mantras and hymns. The ceremony was graced by the presence of 18 Buddhist priests, who gathered to perform the function and bless the park with their prayers and blessings.
