Annapurna Lamjung 13 Days Round Trip, 9 Days Trekking. Max Altitiude 2715m
Away from the busy tourist routes, this trek provides a magnificent introduction to the pleasures of trekking. Starting from Pokhara, we journey under the dominating Annapurna 2 (7,940m), Lamjung Himal (6,951m) and Machapuchare (6,995m). One of the advantages of this trek is that it is fun for all ages. Without having to reach high altitudes, views of the mountain peaks are close and clear.
On our journey we encounter first, people of the Brahmin caste and then Gurungs. Siklis is the largest Gurung village where many Gurung soldiers have their home. The colour and vibrance of the people is beautifully matched by the calm of the vast forests of rhododendrum, oak and bamboo.
This is a relaxing way to become familiar with trekking life. The mountains and the villagers will ensure your enjoyment and draw you back for more.
