This fall TAAN, the Trekking Agencies’ Association of Nepal, launched three new treks – one of which will benefit the schools in and around Nangi village.
Mahabir Pun has always had the vision of a trekking route close to home.  This dream became a reality when the Borderlands Resort’s Director Megh Ale agreed to team with the Himanchal Educational Foundation to create this new route. 

New Eco-Trekking Lodge in Nangi Nepal

Coordinated by Nature-Treks, these community eco-lodge treks emphasize communities, conservation, and environmentally sustainable travel.  Trekkers will travel for seven days to six villages (see Trek #1 on google map), whose elevations range from 2,700 feet at the starting point in Beni along the Kali Gandaki River to over 9,000 on the Mohare Ridge.  On a clear day you can see over 30 snow clad mountains including three mountains over eight thousand meters. 
In addition to the grandeur of Nepal, this trek is eco-friendly and the lodges are owned and operated by their local schools: all proceeds after expenses go back to the schools for educational purposes and lodges are run by local villagers.
