Exploring the Karbakeli Eco-Trek: An Enchanting Journey in Nepal

The Karbakeli Eco-Trek, launched on May 18, 2018, has emerged as a hidden gem in the Nepalese tourism landscape. This trek, characterized by its pristine natural beauty and rich cultural tapestry, offers an alternative and eco-friendly trail to explore the breathtaking vistas of Nepal. Crafted and promoted in collaboration with the Trekking Agency Associations of Nepal (TAAN), Nepal Tourism Board (NTB), and Nepal Mountaineering Associations (NMA), along with the enthusiastic involvement of the Karbakeli Village Tourism Deployment Committee (KVTDC), this trek has quickly gained recognition for its unique offerings.

A Scenic Journey through Karbakeli Eco-Trek

The Karbakeli Eco-Trek is a mesmerizing journey that promises to immerse you in the stunning landscapes and vibrant cultures of Nepal. This trail offers a newly opened version of the classic Poon Hill trek, with the added charm of MOHARE Danda. Situated in the Annapurna region, this trek is a treat for nature enthusiasts and cultural explorers alike.

As you embark on this adventure, you’ll be greeted by a panoramic view of the Annapurna mountain range, which includes the majestic Dhaulagiri standing tall at 8,167 meters, the impressive Tukuche peak at 6,920 meters, and the iconic Nilgiri at 7,061 meters. The Annapurna South peak, at an elevation of 7,219 meters, adds to the grandeur of the landscape. However, the natural beauty isn’t the only highlight; the Beni Bazaar Valley, with its stunning gorge, is another captivating feature of this region.

A Melting Pot of Ethnic Diversity

The Karbakeli area is a melting pot of ethnic diversity, with various communities coexisting harmoniously. Among the prominent ethnic groups are the Poon Magars, Tamangs, Thakalis, Damais, and more. However, it is the Poon Magars who predominantly inhabit the Karbakeli area, and their rich culture and customs add depth and authenticity to the trekking experience.

Karbakeli Baba: The Chief God of the Magar Community

Central to the culture of the Magar community is the veneration of Karbakeli Baba as their Chief God on Earth. Perched atop Karbakeli Hill, the temple dedicated to Karbakeli Baba stands as a testament to this deep-rooted faith. Located in Annapurna Municipality Word No 8 at Kaphal Danda, which is also known as “Ramchan Kulchan Danda,” this temple sits at an altitude of 2,332 meters. Adorned with prayer flags and featuring a splendid golden statue of Karbakeli Baba, the temple is a place of spiritual significance and breathtaking beauty.
