Treks follows the Yak country and finally over to the Thorung La (5416m) pass with amazing views of the surrounding landscapes and magnificent peaks, After the strenuous walk up to the top of Thornag La we reach the highest point of this trek. The trail descends most of the way to Pokhara passing throught the holy site of Muktinath. Muktinath is one of the sources of the Kali Gandaki River. Through the deepest gorge of Kali Gandaki River Valley and passing the charming Villages of Jomsom, Marpha, Tukuche and Tatopani (Hot Spring), we end our trek at Pokhara one of the most scenic places on this planet. The dramatic deep valleys and mountain scenery is the reason for this trek, and the experience is truly awe-inspiring.
