Kali Gandaki valley Trekking

Duration: 16 Days   |   Based on 1 Review

Travel and explore Nepal with the Kali Gandaki valley trekking, which is a comparatively easy trek where the trails have been affected by roads, but has still a popular pick among those trekkers who wish to trek in the mountain region without having a major risk of high altitude sickness. This pleasant, serene and gorgeous trek gives us stunning views of the high and majestic Himalayan giants including the Dhaulagiri, Nilgiri, and Annapurna ranges.

The Kali Gandaki valley trek goes all the way up to the holiest Muktinath temple, from where we go back to the final stop of our trek, Jomsom. Back in the day, Kali Gandaki Valley was very popular as it was the main trading route with Tibet and hence, a decent number of guest houses and lodges are available in this area. The inhabitants of this region are the Thakali people and are renowned for their hospitality and for being obliging hosts and also their signature Thakali food. During this trek, we go through amazing trails that follow the Kali Gandaki River valley where there are Hindu lowlands in the south and Buddhist habited villages and people in the upper valley. As we get to Tukuche, we get off the main trail and head to the spectacular Dhaulagiri icefall where we are confronted by the breathtaking views of the icefall and the deep valley to Annapurna.

When we go north towards Mustang and Tibet the scenery changes dramatically, the landscape will drastically be different. Hills will be dry and barren with no signs of green vegetation, the winds will be at their driest and highest and the river bed widens. Fulfill your curiosities when we get to Muktinath where we have adequate time to explore the renowned Hindu temple and we can also manage an excursion to the base of Thorang La Pass.



  • Explore the classic route, Thakali villages, holy Temple and enjoy the high Himalayas including Dhaulagiri, Nilgiri, and Annapurna ranges
