Machhapuchhre Model Trek is a unique package that provides alternatives to trekkers who are affected by the increasing motorable roads constructed in the ACAP region. 

Machhapuchare Model is named so because of the excellent views of Mount Machhapuchare is observed on this trek. Like Mount Fishtail, this trail is also a virgin, unspoiled trail. 

Trekkers have the option to extend the trek up to Mardi Himal Base Camp enjoying the great views of the snow-capped Himalayan range including the popular Mt. Annapurna and Mt. Machhapuchare (Fish Tail), mountain landscapes, natural hot water springs, mixed indigenous lifestyles, rhododendron forest, ancient caves, waterfalls, various species of flora and fauna and obviously the amazing viewpoints.

Machhapuchhre Model Trek can be done either by staying in the camping tents in indigenous houses in the villages of Lachok, Ghachok, Machhapuchare, Ribhan, LwangGhalel, Sardikhola and Dhital.

The Machhapuchare Model homestay has been fruitful for more than 16,000 local villagers. TAAN is working hard to minimize the environmental impacts and to maximize the economic impacts of trekking.
