This is one of the classic Nepalese treks, traversing this gorgeous country of shale, rocky outcrops, undulating snow-capped peaks and passes and colourful local cultures and traditions. Beginning in Pokhara and finishing in Muktinath, the trail is based on an ancient trading route so passes through many villages and settlements with lots of opportunities to visit traditional tea houses or shrines along the path.

Much of the route follows the Kali Gandaki river through the culturally rich lower Mustang region with it’s rhododendron and magnolia forests and some spectacular gorge country in the Annapuna Mountain Range, home to a large portion of the worlds highest mountains and some dramatic mountain passes with high bridges to cross adding more drama to the view. There are several points along the trek offering some classic views to Annapurna and Dhaulagiri.

While much of the trail is at an altitude of below 3,000m the highest point is the final climb to 3,800m at Muktinath temples a popular spot for both Buddhist and Hindu pilgrims.

Though a challenging trek the situation along the trading routes means you can stay in guest houses or trekking lodges along the way and don’t have to trek with all your requirements. Another nice feature is the gentle ascent into the mountains at the beginning of the route, but the trail still climbs over 1,500m in the first two days of walking.

Last time I walked this route I especially enjoyed my stay in Tatopani, one of the larger towns and home to nearby hot springs - excellent for a break in the trek.
