Day 1: Pokhara - Galeshwor ( 5 hours drive) - Banskharka( 3 hours trek)
Climb up 3 hours almost only on stairs. You’ll make your way past a couple small villages until you reach Baskharka Community Lodge. Breakfast and start drive early in the morning from Pokhara for 5 hours passing through corn fields and hydro-electric dams until the village of Galeshwor. We geared up there and start the trek through little farming communities who were growing oranges, lemons, corn, and plums. We stop to catch our breathe many times during the nearly all vertical climb, and one time we look up and the clouds parted enough for us to see Dhaulagiri, the 7th highest peak in the world. After three hours of sweat and wobbly legs, we reach to Banskharka Community dining hall, where we would have dinner that night. If you are lucky to watch the sunset over the vast valley below the dining hall.
Day 2: Banskharka - Nangi Community Lodge(5 to 6 hours trek)
The morning is another 3 hour climb up steps and passing through villages. But after lunch, the trail levels out a bit so you can enjoy the views more. Breakfast and the next 3 hours is pretty tough trekking similar to the day before up the mountain past rice and corn fields. After lunch, the hike is much easier as the trail leveled off and we walk across a few race fields and through local communities. Walk around Nangi village and enjoy the view of Annapurna South and Dhaulagiri with sunset.
Day 3: Nangi - Mohare Danda(5 to 6 hours)
Even though we gain 1,000 meters this day, it didn’t feel like it. The trail is mostly uphill, with intervals of flat trail in between the climbs. We pass through an evergreen forest and past the tree line with epic views of the valleys below. Also, we have to carry all the water we’d be needing with us, as there are no villages on this section of the trek. After breakfast, continue trek uphill until the lunch spot around 12 pm, which is a hut in the middle of the path. After lunch, continue trek again another 2 hours on a Nepalese flat trail up and down, up and down, until to the top at Mohare Danda Lodge( 3,300m), this is the highest point of the trek. On a clear day you can see the peaks of Dhaulagiri (8,172m), Nilgiri (7,061m), Annapurna 1 (8,091m), Annapurna South (7,219m), and Fish Tail Mountain (6,997m) which is sacred and no one permit to the summit.
Mohare Danda is the highest wireless internet relay station in Nepal, which allows the schools and hospitals in remote villages to connect to Kathmandu providing better healthcare to the region.
Day 4: Mohare Danda - Tikot Village(5 to 6 hours trek)
Wake up early in the morning, enjoy sunrise view over the Himalayas. Breakfast and trek down hill through a rhododendron forest and over streams to Tikot village. On the trail you could see the Poon Hill. Walk in rhododendron forest which feel like we step out of the wardrobe and into Narnia. Loads of colorful barked trees formed a thick overhead canopy line your hiking trail which would be really nice. The trail eventually connects with a road which we travel on until the village of Tikot.
Day 5: Tikot - Bashari(3-4 hours trek)- Pokhara( 5 hours drive)
All downhill today which is actually one of the most difficult parts of trekking. You’ll walk down steps through small villages and farm terraces as you zig-zag your way down to the Kali Gandaki River where the shuttle will be waiting to go back to Pokhara.
