Korchen trekking in Nepal is newly found trekking route in Annapurna region. This is a Camping Trekking in Nepal that takes you to Korchen, which is a rounded summit on a ridge lying south of Machhapuchhare, one of Nepal’s most beautiful and most photographed mountains. Though lower in altitude, Machhapuchhare, its fish tail shape pointing skywards, appears to dwarf the mighty Annapurnas, which are ranged to the west and east. The panorama of these awesome peaks, viewed from Korchen’s summit in the pale light of dawn or bathed in evening sun, is a sight that few will forget. On this short, but incredibly scenic Camping Trek in Nepal, we walk up the ridge route to Korchen. We trek through forest and open pasture, with tantalising glimpses of the peaks ahead as an incentive to keep going.
Korchen Camping Trekking is fully a private trekking in Nepal provides a panoramic view of Mt. Mardi, Mt. Machhapuchre, and the Annapurna Himalayan ranges, allowing observers to prodigy at their fascinating beauty. In December 2009, the Swiss Ambassador to Nepal Thomas Gass initiated this route that passes through seven northern village development committees of Kaski district. This trek passes though Tatopani of Sardikhola, Hile of Ghachowk, Rivan of Lahachowk, Lwanghalel and Milanchowk of Hemja.
As the Korchen Camping Trekking is all about the camping so, We camp two nights at Korchen, which allows for a full day of exploration further up the ridge for those who want the greater challenge of reaching 4000 meters and even more incredible views. After trekking back down the ridge, we descend to the valley, which is deeply scarred by several spectacular gorges. Walking to the trailhead, we pass Buddhist Gurung villages, set among rice paddies and cornfields. This wonderful Korchen Camping Trek is the result of an extensive reconnaissance visit to the Annapurna region in 1999, in which we walked many of its forgotten trails to search out new and exciting trek itineraries. We believe there to be few other one-week treks of this caliber on offer.
Trekking to Korchen Camp is possible in all the seasons of the year and all of them equally serves astonishing views of the mountain panorama, cultural diversities and the rolling green hills. Korchen Camping Trek is moderate level trekking and can be completed by all the trekkers with stable health and physical fitness. You can explore the tremendous beauties of hiogh Himalayas including the Machhapuchhre Range from very close in Korchen Trek in Nepal.
