Taste of Community Eco-Lodge Treks: 12 days Trip and 06 days Trek

The trek

This trek starts from Galeshwor to Nangi and all the way to Histan (Tikot) via spectacular  Hill of Mohare. The normal day on this trek, begins in the early morning after the first meal of the day (breakfast), so that you could see the best view of the area and the mountains. Usually the walking or trekking ends in the afternoon, mostly well before the darkness, to be in the lodge comfortably though some time, it could take longer. Lunch will be provided (pack or hot) in the middle of the day and then dinner  in the evening. The food provided are mostly organic local food such as rice, wheat, buckwheat, corn and millet food, locally grown vegetables and mushrooms and noodles, in a tasty and wholesome cuisine. Eggs will be also used often but meat will be used few times only, subject to availability as most villages use the meat especially in the special occasions and festivals only.

The walking between the villages will be all in your own pace, so that you can enjoy the day and get most of your trek to know and experience. There will be always somebody with the people who walk behind and in the front, so that nobody will be there without any of our staffs, that comes from the villages in most.

Why choose this trek!

The “Taste of Community Eco-lodge treks”  is a great short trek suitable for all kinds of outdoor lovers even for family adventure. The trail stays on off the beaten track, in a different area even so close to the mountains and people. This is a also a trek with great purpose! Trekkers will enjoy more, as this is community based tourism with genuine eco-sense and offers all the components such as great mountain views, real village life cultural experience, natural environment, friendly people, real trekking or walking experience. The added highlight is, all the lodges are fully managed by the communities themselves that is creating the opportunities of works and their capacity building. This directly provide the economic benefit for the whole communities. They are also involved community organic farms (the orange juice factory), school for higher secondary levels, community forest and many other activities collectively.

Trip grade (level of difficulty): Introductory to Moderate Adventure

The highest point on this trek is 3300m. The trek is categorized as an introductory to moderate adventure that can fairly easy. However, it can be also be quite strenuous for some people, at some points, (as it’s known, Nepal is a hilly and mountainous country). Anybody with some reasonable level of physical and mental fitness can enjoy this walk greatly.

People with some chronic health problems are advised to choose after their medical consultation only or choose accordingly that can be suitable for them.

Season/time to go on this trek

This trek can be done through out the year. However if you are looking for settled weather and clear mountain views, its the autumn to winter and spring to summer before the monsoon starts. It can be cold especially at the highest point whenever you go. During the later summer, the wet season lasts till September, when the lush green surroundings and mountain flowers along the trail contrast with the mountains, making this a breath-taking time to come. The rain sometimes can make it little uncomfortable, but it is possible to enjoy the trek during this time too.

Food and drink

The food provided along the trail is simple Nepali food that mostly comes only from this area. The vegetables and other food stuffs are organically grown locally. The main meal is called Dal Bhat that consists of rice, lentil soup, vegetables (curried and plain), local salads, pickles and chicken or mutton, sometimes with buffalo meat. Canned foods are also almost non-existence or are used very occasionally. Roti or bread made of wheat, barley and millet; noodles; and a mix of some Nepali and western food support the main meals. Overall the meals provided are healthy and wholesome, hygienically prepared and served by trained cooks and staff.

For drinking water we strongly advise you to bring one or two liter water bottles to refill with boiled and treated water, as plastic mineral water bottles are discouraged for environmental reasons. The water bottle can be filled at the lodges whenever you need or at the lunch stops.

Accommodation

For accommodation home-stay in two places and rest community lodges.
