Overview
This is a unique trek on the foothill of the Annapurna south specially designed for those who love to enjoy the flora and fauna, panoramic view of the Himalayan range in a comfortable way including Annapurna, Dhaulagiri, Fishtail and other Himalayas...
What to Expect
This is an ideal trek best called as a classic walk right into the heart of the mountains and our gentle walk start from lowland to the outstanding high mountains with breathtaking view of the Annapurna range. The walk ends at a point where you are virtually surrounded by soaring Himalayan peaks. Once this trek was a real expedition into an uninhabited wilderness area!

The trek involves several ascents and descents but not so hard to attempt as there are several alternative routes to the sanctuary, all meeting at Chhomorong.

This trek provides an excellent opportunity to experience the fascinating glimpse of rich culture, typical Nepalese lifestyle and ultimate thrill of trekking in the Himalayas at the high elevation.
