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 Khobra Ridge. The views are incredible with the sheer walls of the magnificent Dhaulagiri plunging into the misty depths of the Kali Gandakhi – the deepest gorge in the world. We are further graced with the high pastures above Khobra Ridge beneath the amazing Annapurna South and Bharha Shikha – more commonly known as Annapurna Fang. This is a place 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.
