Begin the trek from the historic centre of Gorkha after a 6-7 hrs drive from Kathmandu. The
trail heads up the valley of the Buri Gandaki River through wild and unexplored country
inhabited mainly by members of the Gurung ethnic group.

meter and finally emerges onto the Marshyangdi river valley along the main trail of
Annapurna circuit. You will have two options as where to conclude your trek.

high and arduous hike through Thorung la pass at 5416 meter and conclude the trek by
flying down to Kathmandu via Pokhara, or you can also avoid a flight by walking down to
Pokhara from Jomsom following the Annapurna trail in 4-5 Days. Along the way you will be
rewarded with magnificent views of the Annapurna Massifs and Dhaulagiri peaks.
