Lamjung Himal low altitude trek cuts through an area rarely visited and traverses a variety of terrain from low land villages and terraced fields up to Nepal largest Gurung village of Siklis. Starting from the old capital of Gorkha,Highlight of the Lamjung Himal trekking is an exploration day spent near Lamjung Himal Base Camp on a huge alpine plateau. The return trek to Pokhara leads to Thulo Kot . From this vantage point there are views stretching from Dhaulagiri in the west to Manaslu in the east.
our route climbs atop a hill overlooking the snowy peaks of the Himalaya and where the old royal palace known as Gorkha Durbar towers the bazar. Descending through terraced fields we head west to cross the Annapurna circuit route before traversing an area south of Lamjung Himal at low altitude with plenty of rural life such as typical Nepalese villages not used to seeing foreigners. Reaching Madi Pool north of Pokhara, our route heads towards the fishtail peak of Machapuchare upstream the Seti Khola till Ghalegaon, an important Gurung village. Then the trail climbs up to Siklis through a rhododendron forest. The largest Gurung village is situated at the foot of Lamjung Himal (6931m). From there we descend steeply to the Modi Khola riverside. Our last camp at Thulo Kot offers a panorama of twenty peaks before descending to the Begnas lake. Starting from the historical town of Gorkha, this interesting route crosses the valleys of the Daraundi and Marsyangdi rivers, before climbing to the eastern extension of the Annapurna range. There are excellent viewpoints for the peaks of Manaslu, Peak 29, the Annapurnas and Lamjung Himal.
