Annapurna & Dhaulagiri

Nepal

About the trip

Altitude: 3650m    
Best Season: Autumn/Spring

Annapurna Region is the first largest conservation covering 7629 sq. kilometre. Annapurna conservation contains world class treks including Annapurna Base Camp and Annapurna Circuit. Annapurna falls in western part of Nepal. This popular trek in the Annapurna region offers unparalleled views of the Annapurna and Dhaulagiri ranges along with the diversity of Nepal. Within a few days we gain a sense of serenity as we gradually ascend through hamlets and pristine forests to the alpine heights of Kobra Ridge. The views are incredible with the sheer walls of the magnificent Dhaulagiri plunging to the misty depths of the Kali Gandakhi – the deepest gorge in the world. We are further graced with the high pastures above Kobra Ridge beneath the amazing Annapurna South and Bharha Shikha – more commonly known as Annapurna Fang, and where ancient pilgrim trails lead to the sacred waters of Khaire Lake. Our route also offers staggering views of Annapurna South and other surrounding peaks. Cocooned by stunning mountains and peaks and hiking past lakes formed by the glaciers and ice falls of Annapurna South, perception and time subtly shift and one feels like a pioneer on a completely different planet.
