Within a few days of arriving at the trail head, stand at Poon Hill (3,210 meters) and gaze at a panoramic view of some of the highest peaks in the world.
Before the trekking, enjoy a day in Pokhara – an quest lover’s nirvana. The city lies next to Phewa Lake, encased by lush trees. The pure air is quite a sustenance after spending some days in Kathmandu. Ramble around lakeside and enjoy the slipshod vibes of Pokhara before beginning the trek the following day.
Get on on the adventure from Nayapul and follow the brooks past attached hillsides and villages in Annapurna region. Admire the typical lifestyle found in the feet of the massive Himalayas.
