This three-week trek takes you far way from the road, in to the heart of the high mountains.

Fishtail, Mt. Manaslu, Mt. Nilgiri, Mt. Hiun Chuli, Mt. Dhawalagiri, Mt. Gangapurna and several other mid western Himalayan ranges of Nepal . From the heights of the pass we descend to Muktinath and its sacred Buddhist and Hindu Shrines.
