  • Cost Info

Annapurna Dhaulagiri Panorama Trek is starting from Nayapul to the first day a relatively easy hike till Gandruk. Where we spend the over night than next day hiking to Ghorepani considerably more challenging due to the significantly steep line itself followed of the way. I believe many peoples choose this route the opposite way but its difficulty is a good warm up to the day.

The well mark path journey through the scenic Rhododendron forest over a number of smaller streams and around a few home-sites off slightly late we departure from Ghorepani to the base of the Khopra Dande ridge. After a minor deviation from the trail we began our ascent through despite the season the weather is mostly mild with occasional breaks in the clouds giving us opportunities to fully take in our surroundings. After some improvising up the ridges face Annapurna Dhaulagiri Panorama Trek trail here is a little harder to decipher but is self explanatory. If you pay attention to the terrain the forest here feels mostly untouched and weaves between large treed areas. After another hour and not too much daylight left. We spotted the Khopra Tea-house. (It was a little more than a nine hour day so choosing a closer starting point or leaving earlier will make the day somewhat easier. We will spend the evening around the fire with a group of locals who were visiting the camp. They were all very friendly, generous. The views of Dhaulagiri Annapurna others surrounding valleys were absolutely phenomenal.

We decide to start making our descent towards Tatopani. The path down the opposite side of the ridge is full of its own amazing views.It’s well marked with numerous shrines and small homes along the route. Stopping in the village Paudwar for lunch at small guest house /restaurant that’s adjacent to the school is well worth the wait then continuing on towards Tatopani. Annapurna Dhaulagiri Panorama Trek next day. We will take Local bus into Beni then back to Pokhara. Travels take a good a part of the day and expect an “exciting” ride especially on the first section of road. The entire experience is one of memorable and you couldn’t have hoped for better for your first trek in the Himalayas. I would definitely recommend this trek to anyone who’s looking for a good variety of what the area has to offer in a shorter period of time.
