Kali Gandaki valley Trekking - Annapurna Kali Gandaki trekking

Kali Gandaki valley Trekking -  Jomsom Kali Gandaki valley trekking The trail through the Kali Gandaki Valley has been utilised as a major trading route for centuries following the Kali Gandaki River upstream through the world’s deepest valley, through Mustang to the borders of Tibet. The trail passes from the green, fertile lowlands to the barren and dusty hillsides on the northern side of the Annapurna Mountains.

We begin our trek crossing the foothills of the Himalaya, through small farming villages, terraced hillsides, rhododendron and bamboo forests, ascending to the pass at Ghorapani. An early morning excursion to the top of Poon Hill (3193m) will provide splendid dawn views of the Dhaulagiri and Annapurna Mountains above the Kali Gandaki valley. The route alongside the mighty Kali Gandaki River passes between the mountains of Annapurna 1 and Dhaulagiri, both over 8000 metres high. At Larjung we head off the main trail and head to the spectacular Dhaulagiri Icefall. As we continue north towards Mustang and Tibet the scenery changes dramatically, the landscape becoming much drier and the riverbed widens. At Muktinath we have time to explore the famous temple and make an excursion to the base of the Thorung La Pass. From Jomsom a spectacular mountain flight quickly returns us to Pokhara. Here we stay at the luxurious Fishtail Lodge on Phewa Tal Lake. There is time to explore Pokhara and to relax in the beautiful hotel gardens.
