Level: Moderate (max. altitude 3,802 m)
Best Month: March-May and Sep-Dec
An easier version of the classic Annapurna trek. If you are short on time, or unsure of your fitness or comfort at altitude, this is the trip for you. You fly into Jomosom, ascend to Muktinath, getting a taste of the windy, almost lunar Himalayan desert, and then descend to Pokhara over the brilliant village of Ghorepani that serves as a viewpoint over the Annapurna, Dhaulagiri, Tukuche, and Nilgiri snow peaks. As in the olden days, today too mule and horse caravans stop in this village, whose name translates as 'horse water', to refuel.
