As the sun touches the snowcapped summits the Himalayan giants, Dhaulagiri (8,167m/26,788ft.) and Annapurna (8,091m/26,538ft.) along with a maze of other peaks, slowly begin to appear, like magic, before our eyes. A rewarding trek that can be enjoyed by everyone who appreciates nature and beautiful landscapes. This is one of the lower elevation treks that we offer rising to only 3100 m. If you are very limited on time you can do 3 or 4 days trek to Ghodepani or Ghandrung village which will be perfect for you.
