Description

Group trip
5 days 4 nights
This trek provides a unique and close-up view into village life in this beautiful area of the Himalayas, close to the magnificent peaks of the Annapurnas, Machhapuchhre, Dhauligiri – some of the highest mountains of the world. Trekking in such a pristine and unspoiled area, you are unlikely to meet many other trekkers. Instead, you will meet the local farmers, yak herders and village people in the communities where you will be treated more like a guest than a tourist.
