This trek is one of the most ancient and highly dense with flora and fauns but interestingly remained at the shadow of main flock of the trekkers. The remaining in the shadow is not because this is less interesting than other trekking routes in the Annapurna, but because it is lesser talked about. And there use to be lesser availability of the facilities of hotels, lodges etc. But not it is different. The flora and fauna have been found the most than any other trek routes in the region. And there have been added with necessary facilities. So, this trek recently has been one of the most feasible trek routes in Nepal.

The trek has some of the best viewpoints from which a dramatic close up view of Annapurna massif can be captured. The en-route villages are so colorful with their traditional ways of day to day live. One can observe so closely of it. In the past trekkers are even involved – when they had extra days in harvesting potatoes at Parje village. That was one of the most appreciated activities of the entire trek.

The green carpeted meadows by your trekking trail are excellent grazing sites of the local farmers where thousands of sheep and goat herds can be seen. A 10-12 days trek here is spent with a great pleasant and amazing soft adventure.
