These include several communities, including Gurung, Magar, Tamang, Newar, and Brahmin, among others.

The Glory of Machhapuchhre

Certainly, the main highlight of the Machhapuchhre Model Trek is the magnificent view of Mt. Machhapuchhre itself. You’ll witness some breathtaking views of the 6,993-meter mountain. However, you’ll also see beautiful glimpses of the Annapurna Range as well.

Machhapuchhre in Nepali means ‘the tail of fish’. This grandiose mountain is shaped just like fish-tail. The mountain is worshipped by the people living near it and also is not allowed to climb. Furthermore, the village communities here have culture and traditions that are centuries old. Machhapuchhre Model Trek offers you some insights into their lifestyle and customs.

The Road Less-Travelled

This lesser-known trekking route offers some brilliant sights of snow-clad mountains, lush vegetation, and ethnic cultures. You travel through villages like Machhapuchhre, Lhachok, Ghachok, Lwang, Dhital, etc. and stay in their homes. This will elevate your experience as you will be greeted and treated with respect and hospitality. Alternatively, you can spend the nights in outdoor camps.

You begin from Pokhara as you drive to Lumre and start the trekking. From there we hike up to Kaltha and spend the night there. Next day, we walk for 5 hours uphill to reach Meshroom. On the third day, we will step up to Korjom Danda and return to Kaltha after enjoying the view there. Finally, on the fourth day, we will walk back from Kaltha to Lumre and ride back to Pokhara.

If you want to trek in the Annapurna region but prefer a less-crowded and pristine trail, then this trek route is for you. Only a few people know about this trail, and even fewer have trekked here. Moreover, the trek is not commercialized and hence is ideal for budget travelers. Additionally, you can do this trek with us any time of the year.
