Nangi Hills Trek : RPCV

Nangi Trek Itinerary : R P C V

Robert Frost….
I shall be telling this with a sigh
Somewhere ages and ages hence:
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I..
I took the one less traveled by,
and that has made all the difference.

The Nangi Hills Trek is unlike any of the standard, run-of-the-mill mountain treks elsewhere in Nepal. Rather, this trek provides travelers with a unique opportunity. It takes you into the mid-hills of Nepal, to the villages, hamlets, and farms of the Magar ethnic group. We’re not just going to look at the Himalayan peaks, but we’re also learning about its people, and their place on the magnificent landscape.

The backdrop will be the near vertical south facing wall of Dhaulagiri off to the north complemented by peaks of the Annapurna range at the east. The Himalayas are the “Abode of Snow”, home to both Hindu and Buddhist gods, and many lesser deities and spirits.

We have deliberately timed this trek for the rhododendron blossoming season and spring bird migration. We’ll also enjoy the awesome terracing that will surround our small group as we walk the quiet trails among villagers who call this incredible place home.

BRIEF ITINERARY
March 23 ~ 24 Arrive Kathmandu Nepal, met and transferred to you hotel. Elevation 4464 feet. Free time to explore and sightseeing a few of the must do’s of Kathmandu.

March 25 Overland on the windy road to Pokhara and our comfortable lakeside hotel. Mountains, terraces and more huge towering mountains. Elevation 2992 feet.

March 26 ~ April 03 Spring time in the Himalaya of Nepal has many diverse landscapes — including ten of the highest mountains. We’ll trek trails on the western flank of the Annapurna Himalaya. Dhaulagiri at 26,795 ft. (above) is 7th highest after Mt. Everest. Of course, there are culturally rustic villages along with “old world” markets, palaces, and ancient temples to tantalize the traveler. There will also be an opportunity for those who wish to volunteer your skills or services in the Magar villages during the course of our trek. The brief volunteering options and opportunities are described in more detail below. With our many friends here among the Magar, we’ll be staying in a village guest house and also home-staying too.

Day 11 ~ 12 Return to Kathmandu. Personal time, power shopping for Christmas and take in more of the sites. We often call Kathmandu a “five day city”, there is so much to see and experience.

Additional Nepal options include: Mt. Everest flight-seeing, bicycling Kathmandu, birding at quiet country lodge, etc. Nepal is like a second home for us, so we enjoy welcoming travelers to explore one of the most diverse and repeatable destinations on our planet.
