The trail traversed on this trip pioneers new routes away from the busy teahouse trails and offers some of the best walking in the Annapurnas. It includes the Pokhara Valley with its panoramic views of MachhapuchharMount Dhaulagirie (Fish Tail) and the Annapurna massif, picturesque Gurung villages of the hills and the rhododendron forested ridge lines that provide stunning vantage points for views of the highest peaks. The views from Kopra Ridge are spectacular, taking you close to the peaks of Annapurna and Dhaulagiri with the unique view of the deepest gorge in the world (7000m) and the opportunity to visit the sacred lake of Khaire high up near the base of Annapurna. We travel from Kathmandu to Pokhara by bus, a 200km journey that takes us about 7 hrs. There will be a number of stops on the way with ample time to take photographs etc. A lunch stop is made along the way and a packed lunch will be provided.The Annapurna/Dhaulagiri Trek will appeal to those trekkers who wish to experience the diversity of Nepal with the varied village life of diverse ethnic groups, walking through lush forests and the beauty of the Annapurna and Dhaulagiri ranges. We achieve these highlights while staying predominantly at low altitudes where the temperature.

The trek pace is relaxed to ensure that the trek is comfortably achievable by trekkers of average fitness for their age, but as you would expect, there are some steep uphill sections and narrow tracks. The optional day's trek to Lake Kaire is a long and strenuous one with the possibility of having to cross over frozen mountain rivers. Those who take this side trip, however, have found it to be most rewarding both for its views and spirituality.
