Start: We can arrange tour on any date as per your requirement.

In this trek, which is not difficult compared to Annapurna or Everest Trek, you can experience Nepal in a non-touristic way.
This trek is especially great in February, March and April, because during this time the rhododendron bloom and in the villages there are many many oranges hanging in the trees. If you want you can pluck them and eat while walking. 

Especially in the first part of your trek your group will be alone most of the time, without other tourists around you. This gives you the chance to enjoy the nature around you fully and also integrates you more in the local society. You will take some dinners together with a guestfamily, because during the first part you will stay some nights in the house of host families.
During your trek you will get great views of Dhaulagiri, Annapurna Range and many other mountains.
