Classic Kali Gandaki Valley Trekking

A relaxed introduction to trekking in the Annapurnas range and its Kali Gandaki Valley


Classic Kali Gandaki 
Valley TrekKali Gandaki Gorge located in the lower mustang area along the famous trek route of Annapurna Circuit, the world's deepest river gorge, was once a major trading route between Tibet and India. In more recent years it has opened up to trekkers and its relatively quiet trails offer incredible close-up views of Dhaulagiri, Nilgiri and Annapurna Himalayas. This new itinerary offers a chance to get close to these giants but in a relaxed manner. Based in the Gurung and Thakalis villages of Thasang, Ranipouwa and Kagbeni there are plenty of options for day walks but you can just as easily stay put for the day, spend time with the locals and soak up the breathtaking views. This is a ideal and easy trek designed for two weeks those who like to go till 3802 meter high villages in Nepal.
