The Ultimate Annapurna Dhaulagiri trip starts from and ends in Kathmandu. It is a trekking tour that takes 16 days taking you through Ghandruk, Swantha, Bhaisi Kharka and 10 other destinations in Nepal. Ultimate Annapurna Dhaulagiri is a guided small group trip that includes accommodation, transport, meals and others.

A remote trek into the heart of the Annapurnas. This popular circuit trek in the Annapurna region offers incomparable views of the Annapurna and Dhaulagiri ranges. Our carefully researched itinerary is impressive, as within a few days we gain a sense of serenity as we gradually ascend through small settlements and dense forests to the alpine heights of Kopra Ridge. The views from Kopra are incredible, with the colossal ramparts of Dhaulagiri plunging to the misty depths of the Kali Gandaki - the deepest gorge in the world. A further highlight are the high pastures above Kopra Ridge beneath the awesome Fang Face of Annapurna 1, where ancient pilgrim trails lead to the sacred waters of Khayer Lake. Another highlight is our lodge adjacent to Poon Hill. Rather than rise before the sun to make the hike to this famous viewpoint, we sleep soundly in our lodge to awake in the morning to views even more outstanding than those from Poon Hill, without the crowds. Our route really does offer a broad experience of the Annapurnas today, as we pass through small yet prosperous villages, traverse grassy ridges, pass through old growth Rhododendron forests and camp underneath some of the most awe-inspiring mountain scenery on earth.

“The entire team who supported this trek were magnificent. The food was outstanding - tasty, delicious and very varied - a remarkable achievement given the environment. Juddha, Ganga, Perna and our cook ensured with their infectious enthusiasm and joy of life that every day was a memorable one. Their levels of service and commitment to our group was unbelievable. They are a remarkable team of individuals - led by Juddha. He himself is a very special man. His leadership skills are right out of the top draw. As someone who has coached leaders over the last 30 years, Juddha is an outstanding example of everything that a great leader should be: clear , authoritative, inclusive, caring, fun, inspiring, humble. engaging, optimistic, supportive. He is a wonderful man with great values. You are very lucky to have him and its a tribute to your company that you have such a person who is so proud of working for you.”
