Everest View Treks and Expedition PVT has is now recommending trekking lovers to discover the undiscovered Annapurna –Dhaulagiri Community Trek project (it is Community-managed Eco trail _ Mohare-Khopra-Khayar Lek) which was established in 2010 with the financial support of UNDP/MEDEP and village contribution. This is a unique trekking route in Nepal due to its objective – to develop the community of Parbat and Myagdi Districts in order to support the education system of community-based schools in the villages.

This trekking route offers you a mixture between fabulous landscape and great cultural experience. This is an “off-beaten” trek which gives you the opportunity to see the real Nepali life while walking in quiet and peace without the crowd that you can usually find in other trails.

During this trek, you will have a combination of community home-stay and community lodges. In each village, you can visit the local projects and buy some of the local products. The benefits from your visit will reach the whole community and will not go to one individual person.
There are many options of itineraries for this trek. Any trekker can adjust this route according to their desire and interest.

Health and Experience Requirements

Annapurna-Dhaulagiri Community Trekking is a not so much difficult  trip suitable for passionate adventurers who have ability to walk at least 6-7 hours a day with a light day pack. In some days we might even need to walk more hours. Walking in higher altitude is physically demanding than walking in the lower altitudes; however, those in excellent physical condition with above average fitness and some hiking experience can do this trek. Positive attitude, self-confidence and strong determination are things that aid to accomplish trip successfully. Exercising and jogging regularly for some weeks prior of the trip are good idea to enhance strength and stability.

Travel Insurance

It is a condition upon trips that all clients be insured for comprehensive expenses that might incur due to medical issues or accidents (this includes air ambulance, helicopter rescue, and treatment costs). Please note that we don’t arrange or sell insurance.

Acclimatization

Annapurna-Dhaulagiri Community Trekking itinerary is planned with a high degree of awareness of AMS (Acute Mountain Sickness). Going up at higher altitudes too fast causes a medical condition serious enough to result in death. The higher the altitude, the less oxygen will be in the air. For example, at an altitude above of 5000m, there is 50% less oxygen than at sea level. Therefore, our body needs many days to adapt to an environment with less oxygen. Itineraries generally allow sufficient time to acclimatize. So, for a safe trek, it is absolutely essential to allow sufficient time for acclimatization. Sensible planning is therefore required to minimize the risk of AMS. Mild headaches, fever, loss of appetite or stomach disorders are symptoms of AMS.
