INTRODUCTION

This trek is designed for trekkers on a limited time schedule and will offer some of the best views in the Annapurna region without having to contend with the altitude.

TRIP OUTLINE

From the next day trek, we follow the Modi canyon valley through rhododendron and orchid hung forest before we climb to Ghandruk. Ghandruk , a large & prosperous Gurung village, is beautifully set against the backdrop of Annapurna South (7219m), Hiunchuli (6441m) and holy Mount Machhapuchhre (6993m). The reminder of the treks follows the Modi valley and will drive back to Pokhara from Naya Pul.
