Annapurna Foothills Trek - One of the finest and relaxing trek in the Annapurna region!
Annapurna Foothills trek is a low level walk in the Annapurna in north central part of Nepal. Gentler but no less invigorating, this is a trek in the foothills of the Annapurna range in Nepal. It doesn’t miss out a thing and the views are just jaw-dropping. With the highest part of this trek only reaching 3210m (at Poon Hill) and some of finest mountain views (particularly between Tadapani and Ghorepani), this is a fantastic trek for those who do not want to walk for more than a week, have limited time and also want to avoid the major high altitude areas of the Annapurna range.
This ten day trek offers benefit of less frequented paths, without missing out on the sights. It is ideal for those with limited time, or who seek a gentle introduction to the scenic and cultural beauty of the Nepal Himalaya. Our route travels west from Pokhara out across the Panchase Lekh to the Modi Khola Valley, before turning north for the long but gradual climb through rhododendron groves to the village of Ghorapani and its magnificent panoramic views of Dhaulagiri and Annapurna. We then backtrack across the high ridges of the Deorali Pass (10,000ft) to Ghandruk with its slate-roofed houses and fertile terraced fields. From Ghandruk the trail descends steeply to the Modi Khola, before climbing to a final, superbly situated campsite known as Austrian Camp, directly facing the peaks of the Annapurna Himal.
Annapurna Foothills Trek is best trip among the none-too-fit trekkers in their 60s and 70s and those who love the soft walking holidays relaxing though the charming villages, terraced farm lands, lush green and rhododendron forests, and breath taking Mountain View almost every day with easy access. Early morning excursion to famous Poon Hill to observe the spectacular sun rise over Mt. Dhaulagiri, Annapurna, Nilgiri and many other snowy peaks is awesome experience. When the sun touches Himalayan giants in the early morning you will just say "wow". The route in Annapurna Foothills Tour includes Dhampus, Pothana, Deurali, famous Gurung village of Landruk, Ghandruk, Ghorepani then descend down through Ulleri, Tikhedhunga and finally Nayapul to end the trip.
