Nepal – The Pokhara Valley and Annapurna Himal

The Pokhara Valley of Nepal is one of the most beautiful places in the world. It is only in Pokhara, a subtropical valley at 3,000 feet, from where one can gaze up at 25,000 foot Himalayan ice summits only 20 miles away. Join us for a relatively short but wonderfully varied exploration of this region, an ideal introduction to trekking in Nepal! This trek traverses the foothills of the Annapurnas, up and down steep ridges dotted with small villages, across fields and farms of the Magar and Gurung people and through forests of oak, pine and rhododendron. The snowy flanks of Dhaulagiri, the Annapurnas, and the famous spire of Machapuchare, the "Matterhorn of Nepal," are seen from high viewpoints at the villages of Ghorepani and Ghandruk.
