Although newer routes are attracting more tourists, this old favorite with brilliant sights and distinctively Nepali villages still boasts the true spirit of trekking in Nepal.

The panoramic view of Annapurna South, Machhapuchhre and Dhaulagiri along the trail makes this short trek even more enchanting.

You start your trek at Nayapul and follow a rocky path along the banks of Modi Khola to reach Birethanti. You then pass through Ghandruk, Tadapani and Ghorepani before making an early morning excursion to Poon Hill and be mesmerized by mountain views and the stunning sunrise over the Himalayan panorama.

This is a perfect route for those who get nervous with longer treks and also for those with tight schedules.

Earthquake update:

This trail is relatively unscathed by the earthquake and is safe for trekking.
