Enjoy some naturally grown Oranges

  • Starting from Pokhara, you are driven to Galeshwor, where you start your trek. Heading up to Bas Kharka, you pass scattered farmhouses, forests, and orange groves as you approach the village. You will have time to explore this Magar village and can visit the local school and if in season, enjoy the sweet oranges that grow on the hillsides here.

Day 2: Bas Kharka to Nangi

Immerse yourself in local life

After lunch, it is a leisurely walk on to Nangi, the 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.
  • The hike will take around 5 hours
Day 3: Nangi to Mohare Danda

Close up views of the mountains

  • Today you climb through beautiful, pristine forests with stunning views of the mountains. On the top of Mohare Hill, you can see the Himalayas stretching as far as the eye can see, with close-up views of Machhapuchhre and Dhaulagiri. Don’t be surprised to meet yaks grazing along the route. There is no village here, but located at Mohare Danda is the highest wireless internet relay station in Nepal that provides internet to the remote villages for schools and health posts that use telemedicine, linking up with hospitals in Kathmandu to provide better healthcare in the villages.
  • This will take around 7 hours.
Day 4: Mohare Danda to Danda Kharka

Mountains so close that you almost feel like you could touch them

  • This will be roughly 2 hours.
Day 5: Danda Kharka to Swanta

Taste some homemade cheese

You will cross a river and after a succession of ascents and descents through the forest, you arrive at the village of Swanta. Here you can see farming activity in full swing. There is also a community cheese factory where if you are lucky, you can taste the local cheese.
Day 6: Swanta to Dhankharka

This place also serves as a sheepfold for herds of yaks.

The highest point of the trek

Once you reach Khopra you can walk along Khopra Ridge to a viewpoint that overlooks the Kali Gandaki River far below in the deep valley. From Khopra you can admire the stunning panorama that includes Mt. Dhaulagiri, Nilgiri and Annapurna South.
