Lamjung Himal trekking in the Annapurna region starts from the historical city, Gorkha. Even though this trek has less traveled routes, it offers you the chance to explore lowland villages, picturesque terrace fields and experience the real beauty of the region without encountering exotic trekkers and crowds of people. The trek rewards us with several breathtaking view points from where we can see the views stretching from Dhaulagiri in the west to Manaslu in the east. Talking about the highlight of the trip, it is the day where we will spend the day at Lamjung Himal base camp on a huge alpine plateau. A bit wild and remote but full of fun, this trek starts from the historical capital of Gorkha and ends at Pokhara, the lake city.
We begin our trek through the serene green lowlands and slowly make our way towards a hill where the ancient royal Gorkha Durbar stands with pride, overlooking the snowy peaks of the Himalayas. As we descend through terraced fields, we head west to the Annapurna circuit route before traversing to the south of Lamjung Himal which lies at a low altitude with plenty of things to explore and see. You get to be face to face with the rural life of the typical Nepalese villages and their lifestyles. After we get to, Madi Pool which lies to the north of Pokhara, a trail takes us towards the fishtail peak of Machhapuchhre. We then take the trail up to Siklis through a lush and gorgeous rhododendron forest. We also come across the largest Gurung settlement situated at the foot of Lamjung Himal (6931m). After we get to the top, we descend steeply to the calm and serene Modi Khola riverside. As for our last camp at ThuloKot, it has a lot to offer like the panorama of twenty peaks before descending down to the calm Begnas Lake. Starting from the historical town of Gorkha, this interesting route crosses the valleys of the Daraundi and Marsayangdi rivers, before climbing to the eastern extension of the Annapurna range which is a very spellbinding and a very enthralling route. Get ready to experience few of the best views in the world from spectacular viewpoints with views of Manaslu, Peak 29, the Annapurna and Lamjung Himal..
