What to expect?

A mosaic of Nepalese beauty awaits you on this journey. Flowering rhododendron forests come alive with birdsong, and deep, subtropical valleys set with stone steps will make you feel like an old-fashioned adventure hero! This is all set with the beautiful Annapurna Mountains - including the famous Machapuchare, or Fish Tail - dominating the skyline. The climax of your trek, sunrise atop Poon Hill, will give you front-row access to one of the most phenomenal spectacles of natural theatre on Earth.
