This rural trek offers access to Nangi village between Beni and Poon Hill, and Khopra to the north of Ghorepani in the Annapurna region. Nangi Village is the location of a vibrant development project providing formal and vocational schooling as well as wireless internet access to the community. Khopra is a remote, isolated village offering panoramic mountain views of the Annapurna range.
Rich in culture, nature and remoteness this special and newly developed rural trek is 'off the beaten track' and enables close contact with several indigenous groups. One of them is the Pun-Magar ethnic groups who have their own language, culture and customs. This trek offers you a variety of accommodation, ranging from staying with local families, lodges and community-run lodges specifically built to encourage eco-tourism in this remote area. You will have the great opportunity to experience rural life in the villages of Nepal and the contrast of hiking two days in terrain populated only by wild yaks. A strenuous 9-hour side trip can be made to the beautiful sacred lake of Khaire at 4,700m.
