ABOUT DHAULAGIRI ECO TREK

Also known as the Parbat Myagdi Ecotourism Trek, this is one of the several new community-managed projects areas of Nepal where the benefits from tourism reach the whole community instead of individuals. The trek offers community lodges and home stays.

The views from Mohare Hill, the highest point of the trek (3310m), are simply breathtaking. From this viewpoint gaze at spectacular sunrises and sunsets over the Annapurna Himalayan Range. Views of 2 of the highest mountains in the world: Annapurna I (8091m), Dhaulagiri (8172m), and also other numerous snowcapped mountain peaks such as Tukuche Peak, Nilgiri, Varaha Shikhar, Annapurna South, Annapurna III, Machhapuchhre, Annapurna IV, Annapurna II, Lamjung Himal.

A fantastic trek to get immersed in the Magar community and Hindu culture. As you approach the land of the Annapurnas your path will cross wonderful Rhododendron forest (the national flower of Nepal) and terraced fields. Experiences that will test the limits of your camera lenses. The Eco-Tourism approach in this region offers a sense of humanity and respect that will bring us a fresh perspective.
