Rough and wild, this trek cuts through less traveled country south of Annapurna II and Lamjung Himal massif. It boasts good mountain views and the local people are unaccustomed to trekkers. It is a spectacular short trek and traverses a variety of terrain from low land villages and rice terraces up to Nepal’s largest Gurung (Gurkha) village (300m) as well as blooming forest of rhododendron in the spring.
