Annapurna Foothills Trek

A completely and extremely different destination is the Annapurna foothills trek in Nepal Himalaya.  The Annapurna Southern part covers within this foothills trek. It is 3 in 1 trekking such Mardi Himal Trek, Khopra Trek and Mohare Danda Trek. The Annapurna foothills trek offers nature and culture as well as a beautiful Dhaulagiri and Annapurna panorama Himalaya range. You can see this trekking is one of the fewer tourist regions in Annapurna trek. We can say Annapurna Shadow trekking as well instead of Annapurna foothills trek because of the trekking will be the south part of the Annapurna Himalaya. So, Annapurna shadow trekking is a lodge (community lodge) trekking where you can get basic facilities to survive. It is not required to bring own tent. 

Annapurna shadow trekking starts from Kande, nearby Pokhara city (after an hour driving). Annapurna foothills trek goes along the Australian Camp, Pothana, Deurali, Forest Camp, Landruk, Ghandruk, Tadapani, Dobato, Khopra ridge, Swanta, Ghorepani, Mohare Danda then you can end either the bank of Kali Gandaki or Nayapul. The trekking gives a chance to see Mt Fishtail (6993m), Hiun Chuli (6441m), Annapurna South (7219m), Barah Shikhar (7647m) and the massif world seventh highest Mt Dhaulagiri (8167m). The Annapurna foothills trek highest elevation will be Khayer Lake (4727m), the lake would be visited by a day hiking from Khopra ridge. The lake is related to a history of religion. 12 Days Annapurna foothills trekking can be modified up to 14 days trekking duration or make shorten. We, a reliable and services–oriented local trekking agency strongly recommend one of the best trekking in Nepal Himalayas, the Annapurna foothills trek.

Regarding the trail to Khopra, better to go to Bayeli one and half more hrs because there is a separate trail to Khopra nearby Bayeli and ask to local (lodge people) either shortcut trail to khopra is walkable or not because the month of December (end) our group could not go through that trail because of frozen Icy. Then they walked via Chistibung (takes a long time, approx 8 hrs walk on that day).
