Just to the West of the Annapurna Sanctuary route lies the Annapurna Dhaulagiri Community Trek. The trail is also called the ‘Myagdi Parbat Eco-trek’ and it’s located in the area around Poon Hill, and partly lies right on the Great Himalaya Lower Trail (Cultural Route).
This is one of several new community-managed projects in Nepal, where the benefits from your visit reach the whole community. The trek offers you a fabulous Nepal experience with a mixture of nature and culture in abundance. The views from Khopra (3.650m) are far better than from highly visited Poon hill. You have amazing views of both the impressive Annapurna and Dhaulagiri Massive. An additional advantage: with its yak farm, Khopra Ridge is the only place in the Annapurnas where you can encounter yaks!

Our trail passes through quaint villages, cascading waterfalls, lush forests and surprisingly an almost-barren leeward side of the Himalayas. The diverse Nepalese landscape combined with the rich culture of its people makes this trek all the more rewarding. On our Jomsom Muktinath Trek, we also walk on trails along the Kali Gandaki gorge which is the deepest gorge on earth and then visit Muktinath Temple which is an important place of pilgrimage for Hindus and Buddhists alike.
