View the panorama of very high Himalayan peaks of the Annapurna range without going to very high elevations. Trek ridgetops and hillsides through friendly Buddhist and Hindu villages. October trekkers may catch the great fall eagle migration, while March trekkers will experience rhododendrons in a spectacular full bloom. Combine visits to attractive Gurung villages with stunning views of some of the most beautiful peaks in the Himalayas. This trek can be taken at any time of year, and the itinerary can be modified for your particular interests or preferred length of travel. You will spend your nights in small lodges specifically designed to host Western travelers who desire the amenities of modern plumbing, electricity, and private quarters, but who also wish to gain an insider's view of Nepalese culture and village life. Your days are spent hiking mountain trails which afford ever-changing views and perspectives on the land, its people, and Nepalese life. This is a great trip for birders, photographers, and anyone who appreciates the profound rewards of getting away from roads, cities, and the concentrations of mass tourism sites.
