Kathmandu - Bandipur - Pokhara - Dandakarka - Tikot - Kathmandu
For a truly authentic experience in rural Nepal, this trek in the Himalayas takes you to the lesser-visited villages close to Macchupichhre, Dhaulagiri And The Magnificent Annapurnas - some of the highest mountains in the world. You trek through a pristine and unspoiled landscape where you are unlikely to meet many other trekkers. Instead, you’ll meet local farmers, yak herders and village people in the communities where you will be treated more as a guest than a tourist. This trip starts with a tour around some of Kathmandu’s Heritage sites. You have your first taste of village life by exploring Bungemati and Khokana in the Kathmandu valley, before spending the night at a monastery where you can join the monks in their prayers. Breaking your journey to Pokhara at the old newar town of Bandipur, you get a chance to stretch your legs with a day hike to the village of ramkot where you get your first glimpse of the mighty Annapurna mountain range.
This is an easy 6-day trek that takes you up Mohare Hill, where you can admire the Panorama of the Himalayas stretching in both directions as far as the eye can see. You stay in community lodges and homestays where the benefits of tourism go straight back to the local communities.
