This exotic trek is developed into two fold models i.e. camping trek as well as village tours with home stay provisions in 7 different villages enroute like Lachok, Ghachok, Machhapuchhre, Ribhan, Lwang Ghalel, Sardikhola and Dhital in Kaski district, thus benefiting more than 16000 local villagers and several communities.
