Annapurna Dhaulagiri Community Eco-lodge treks
Its not that tourism has not flourished in the country but the benefit has reached to only few areas and largely centralized by certain individuals totally ignoring the much needed and indispensable community building and conservation aspects.
The Annapurna Dhaulagiri Community Eco-lodges (ADCELT) are established along the settlements of culturally rich Magar community, entirely on off the beaten path in wilderness to the breathtaking hills of Mohare and Khopra. The amazing sights from these hills are beyond the word can describe! The superb views of Dhaulagiri, Annapurna massive, Manaslu, Machhapuchhare (Fishtail), Himal Chuli and Jugal range dominates the northern horizon from west to east. Besides this, the pristine and wonderful forest of Chilaune, Pines, Fir, Castanopsis, Quercus and Rhododendrons bestow a great scene and serenity of mind being in the real nature. The sound and song of beautiful mountain birds such as Grosbeak, Yuhina, Tits, Magpies, Pheasants area soothing and lively. At the same time an anticipation of encountering the wildlife such as Deer, Himalayan Bears, Monkey and Leopard makes the trail very exciting and intriguing.
