It is a rare combination of a long array of snow-capped peaks, crystal clear lakes, and turbulent rivers with deep gorges, hot springs and picturesque villages inhabited by simple and friendly people. This trek takes you far away from the vehicular movement, into the land of the standing mountains.
This trek offers spectacular mountain scenery and an extremely diverse cultural experience along with the vast landscape. The trail follows north of the main Himalayan range, to the dry Tibetan-like trans-Himalaya. It is enjoyable and no technical knowledge is required to undertake this trek.
This trek will start in Pokhara before going through the different villages or settlements called Bhulbhule, Chame, Pisang, Manang, Churiledar, Phedi, Muktinath, Kagbeni, Marpha etc. The trek shows some spectacular valleys including Ngwal, Ghyaru, Marsayangdi, Tengi, Manang and Kali Gandaki valley.
