Starting and ending in Kathmandu, the Ultimate Annapurna Dhaulagiri tour is a guided trekking trip that takes 16 days. You will travel through Tadapani, Landruk, Swantha and 10 other destinations in Nepal. Ultimate Annapurna Dhaulagiri is a small group tour which 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 food was fantastic, hot meals 3x a day, fresh rotis and other breads every meal, the cooks literally carrying the kitchens! The guides and other trekking support staff were professional, friendly, supportive, considerate - couldn't have wished for better. The gear provided was great, especially when it got cold! The porters were amazing, and lovely to chat with them shy though they were. Accommodation was comfortable for the conditions in some delightful locations. The pace each day was gentle, time for rests and not rushed at either end of the day so it felt like a holiday as well as a trek. I've had a few experiences of guided treks around the world and this was right up there.”

“My trek exceeded my expectations with safety, food, toilets, cultural sensitivities, challenges, accommodation, guidance all given proper consideration. Fantastic lead guide with lots of interesting knowledge about Nepal and its history. I felt that I was in safe hands and developed personally along with my fellow trekkers whilst enjoying the majestic scenery of the Himalayas. I even got to meet the first Australian to ever climb Mount Everest. I can’t wait for my next trip with World Expeditions.”
