Earth's Paradise Treks & Expeditions

This spectacularly photogenic trek on the southern side of the Himalayas is the approach route for the Annapurna and Machhapuchhre base camps. The trail passes through the cultivated fields, beautiful traditional Gurung tribal villages, temperate rhododendron forests, and into alpine tundra. The early morning view of the Annapurna range from atop Poon Hill is unparalleled by any places accessible by roads. The top point on the trek is 4200 m, making it ideal for people wishing to avoid high altitudes.
