Annapurna Dhaulagiri Community Trek

  • Trip duration 11 Days
  • Trip GradeModerate
  • All Inclusive Price USD (Per Person)

Annapurna Dhaulagiri trekking is one of the best scenic two weeks community based tea house treks in Nepal. No other treks offer such a rich variety of spectacular scenery, peace and isolation and experience of so many diverse Himalayan cultures. We stay at community run and managed lodges, whose profits directly benefit local schools and people. The trail passes through many interesting traditional villages, beautiful forests and rarely trekked high alpine pastures offers magnificent views of the spectacular Annapurna and Dhaulagiri ranges

Annapurna Dhaulagiri Community Trail Trek offers a fabulous experience with a mixture of nature and culture in abundance. The views from Khopra, the highest point of the trek (3650 m) are almost as good the views from Poon Hill. They say people come to Nepal for the mountains and return for the people. Anyone excited to acquire the awesome experience and best views of Himalayas, there are no doubt that the two high points Mohare and Khopra will fulfill it. An additional advantage with its yak farm, Khopra Ridge is the only place in the Annapurna's where you can encounter yaks! This “Off the Beaten Path” trek passes through Rhododendron forests with hidden Hindu temples and shrines around some small and serene lakes. Stumping views of slumping mountains are abundant in this Annapurna Dhaulagiri Community Trail Trek. Secondly, it offers an awesome opportunity to involve with Magar culture and traditions at yak farms, cheese mongers, local paper makers, forest nurseries or bhangra tailors.
