Annapurna Community trek

8 Days

The Annapurna Community trek gives you a unique introduction to village life in the mountains. You will meet people from the local communities in this beautiful, less traveled area of the Himalayas. The beautiful snowy peaks of the Annapurna`s are nearby. Consequently you will see some of the highest mountains in the world including the Machhapuchhre and the Dhaulagiri.

The highest point during your trekking is Mohare Hill. From an altitude of about 3300 meters you have a breathtaking view of the Annapurna and Dhaulagiri mountain ranges. This view is undoubtedly one of the highlights of your trekking!

Because this part of the Annapurna area is less touristic and therefore more unspoiled, you will not encounter many other hikers during the Annapurna Community trek. However, you will meet the inhabitants of the villages, mostly farmers or yak shepherds. These locals will give you a warm welcome in their community. You will spend the night in community lodges and with local families.

All this makes this short trekking very suitable if you want an intense contact with the locals in combination with the white peaks of the Himalayas.

Namaste and welcome to beautiful Nepal.

Today you will drive by private car from Kathmandu to Pokhara. You follow the Prithvi highway (the only road between Kathmandu and Pokhara). On the way you will stop at least 2 times, where you also have time for lunch at one of the stops.

In the afternoon you will arrive in Pokhara, where there is a lot to do. Pokhara is situated along the beautiful Phewa lake. When the weather is nice you can see the snowy peaks of the Annapurna chain. The reflection in the lake is beautiful.

Take a nice walk along the lake and a boat trip on the water to the island with the Hindu temple.

You will spend the night in a standard hotel in Pokhara.

The path to Bas Kharka leads past several remote farms and you first climb up through the forest. Then you walk before entering Bas Kharka through orange groves.

You have enough time to visit this small Magar village. The Magars are an ethnic group.

There is a local school and a health post that you can visit. In autumn and winter you can enjoy a delicious orange from the orchards here!

You will spend the night in a community lodge or home stay in Bas Kharka.

Your hiking day starts today up through a forest to a small village. From here you have a nice view on the valley and you can get acquainted with the local lifestyle.

Afterwards you will hike to the village of Nangi, where you will spend the night today. Here again there's a lot to discover: see how the locals make paper from locally grown plants, visit the school, the herbalistry or some other local projects.

You will spend the night in a community lodge or homestay in Nangi.

Today is the longest hiking day of your trek. You climb up through beautiful, untouched forests, with breathtaking views of the mountains.

From the top of Mohare Hill you are surrounded by views of the Himalayas. Nearby you have a view of two giants: the Machhapuchhre (Fish Tail Mountain) and the Dhaulagiri.

You are in the middle of the beautiful nature. It is so green here, that you will undoubtedly also cross some yaks grazing in the green meadows.

You will spend the night in a community lodge or homestay in Mohare Hill.

Today is a short, but no less beautiful walking day. You follow the path on the mountain hill and have beautiful views in all directions where you look. Afterwards you descend through a forest until you reach Danda Karka.

This remote village seems far away from civilization. The mountains, on the other hand, seem so close here, that it feels exactly like you can touch them.

You spend the night in a community lodge or homestay in Mohare Hill.

What you walk up in the Himalayas, you go back down. So you walk further down today.

The landscape changes slowly as you descend to Tikot, a village with narrow streets and authentic houses.

Here you can enjoy a cultural performance with singing and dancing of the Magars. You can also visit the school here.

If you're staying with a family, you'll get a closer look at family life and village life.

You will spend the night in a community homestay in Tikot.

Today is unfortunately already the last day of the trekking.

From Tikot you descend via a steep path to Tiplyang, where you have a beautiful view on the wild Kali Ghandaki river below.

In Tiplyang a private car is waiting for you to take you to Pokhara. In Pokhara you are free to fill in the rest of the day.

You stay in a standard hotel in Pokhara.

The end of your journey is here. After an early breakfast the driver will pick you up at the reception of your hotel and drive you back to Kathmandu in a private car.

We follow the Prithvi highway (the only road between Pokhara and Kathmandu). On the way you will stop at least twice, of which you will have the opportunity to have lunch at one stop.
