Annapurna Community Eco Lodge Trek - 6 days

This trek provides a unique and close-up insight into village life in this beautiful area of the Himalaya; close to the magnificent peaks of the Annapurnas, Macchupichhre and Dhauligiri – some of the highest mountains of the world. Trekking in this pristine and unspoiled area, you are unlikely to meet many other trekkers. Instead, you will meet the local farmers, yak herders and village people in communities where you will be treated more as a guest than a tourist. 

Day 1:    Drive to Galeshwor, Trek from Galeshwor to Bas Kharka (1500m, 3hrs)
 
 

Starting from Pokhara, you are driven to Galeshwor, where you start you trek. Heading up to Bas Kharka, you pass scattered farmhouses, climbing through forest and then orange groves as you approach this attractive village. You will have time to explore this Magar village, maybe visit the school and healthpost, and in season, enjoy the sweet oranges that grow on the hillsides here. (Approx 900m; 3 hours). 

Day 2:    Trek from Baskharka to Nangi
 
 

Hike up through the forest to Danda Kaske where you stop for lunch. Overlooking the valleys, this is a get place to meet some of the local people and admire the views. After lunch, it is a leisurely walk to Nangi, the main village where you will spend the night. Here you can visit the school, see how the villagers make paper from the locally grown plants, visit a medicinal plant nursery and a number of other income-generating projects. (2300m, 5-6hrs)

Day 3:    Trek from Nangi to Mohara Hill (3320m)
 
 

Today you climb through forest, with stunning views of the mountains. Up on the top of Mohare Hill, you can see the Himalayas strecting as far as the eye can see, with close-up views of Macchapuchre (Fish Tail Mountain) and Dhaulagiri. Surrounded by forest, do not be surprised to meet yaks grazing nearby. There is no village here, but here is the highest wireless internet relay station in Nepal, providing internet to the remote villages for schools and healthpost that use tele-medicine, linking up with hospitals in Kathmandu to provide better healthcare in the villages.

Day 4:    Trek from Moharahill to Danda Kharka
 
 

A fantastic ridge walk with marvelous views in every direction before descending through forest to the secluded lodge at Danda Karka. The mountains here seem so close you feel could reach out and touch them. (2800m - 2hrs)

Day 5:    Trek from Danda Kharka to Tikot
 
 

Continuing down, pass through changing scenery as you reach Tikot, a village of narrow lanes and beautiful houses. Here you visit the school and experience the fascinating Mayar dance tradition (the men dress as women, while the women sing traditional songs). Staying with families in their homes you are treated to a close-up glimpse of village life in this fascinating and bustling village. Sit and watch the women carrying huge mountains of grass to feed their buffalo; see the children clutching their books on their way to school; see the villagers working in their fields. (2300m - 5 to 6hrs)

Day 6:    Trek from Tikot to Tipling & drive to Pokhara
 
 

From Tikot you descend a steep path down to Tipling, with amazing sheer views down to the Kali Ghandaki river below. After about two hours' descent, at Tipling you are transported back to Pokhara. (900m; 2hrs)
