Mohare Danda/Khopra Danda/ABC/Mardi Himal Trek

Following my successful and enjoyable trek around the Annapurnas circuit last November, I have decided to return to the region in November of this year and do a different kind of trek, mostly away from the busier trails and experience more of the delights of this beautiful area.
From the information that I read in my ‘Trekking the Annapurna Circuit’ book, written by Andrees de Ruiter and Prem Rai, these trails are something of an undiscovered paradise – newly set-up with lodges and homestays in peaceful surroundings providing magnificent views of the mountains.

My return flights to Kathmandu from the UK are already booked, I intend to spend as little time as possible in the city (hopefully just one night after arrival and before departure), then the rest of my days on trek with perhaps a day or two r&r in Pokhara after the trek.

I have already worked out a basic itinerary for the trek, which will be a minimum of 20 days
