The trial also offers a magnificent view of Fishtail, Annapurna, Annapurna South, and many more in the Annapurna range. Annapurna View Point Trek trek through tiny mountain villages like Ghorepani, Ulleri, and Ghandruk seem to have come right out of the picture postcards.

This off-the-beaten trek starts at Suiket Phedi and climbs up to Dhampus with stunning views of Machhapuchare (6997m) and the Annapurna Mountain Ranges. This is truly a private trail, which is unique as 75% of the trekkers visit the Annapurna regions yet you will not encounter any other trekkers on this trek for six days. The first few days are uphill as the trek winds along the ridge through forests of birch, rhododendrons, hemlock, and pines and finally, brings you right in front of Machhapuchare and Annapurna South and Mardi Khola winding its way through the valley thousands of feet below.
