Nepal’s only trekking project operated by the communities the trail runs through to financially support community development programs.

Revenue goes toward trails maintenance, laying new paths, the salaries of school teachers, and ensuring village clinics are prepared to aid ailing residents.

The trail offers incredible views and genuine local interaction. Trekkers eat locally grown food in community dining halls and sleep at homestays and community lodges.

About Khopra Mohare Community Trek

The Khopra and Mohare Community Trek weaves through villages and outposts in the Parbat and Myagdi districts of Nepal to take you on a trek less traveled.

The Khopra and Mohare Community Trek is Nepal’s only trekking project operated by the communities it runs through to financially support community development programs. The proceeds from your visit support sustainable projects related to infrastructure, health, and education.

The trail offers both incredible views and genuine local interaction. Trekkers eat locally grown food in community dining halls and sleep at homestays and community lodges. Along the way, trekkers are welcome to visit local schools, clinics, and community enterprises. Itineraries can vary from 5 to 12+ days.

Mr. Mahabir Pun, a native of Nangi village, established the trekking route in 2010 with the financial support of the Nepal Micro-Enterprise Development Program (a program of the UNDP) and village contribution. The project is a joint venture of ten villages: Banskharka, Nangi, Ramche, Tikot, Aula, Khibang, Swanta, Kindu, Paudwar, and Narchyang.

We also offer volunteering opportunities. Reach out, connect with us on Facebook, and come experience the Khopra and Mohare Community Trek.
