The Muldhai Viewpoint Trek (3637m) is the newly-opened trekking trail in the Annapurna Conservation area in Nepal. It diverts from the main and well-known trekking trail of Ghorepani-Poon Hill Viewpoint, which we will also reach on this tour. The 8-day Muldhai trek takes you to discover the stunning natural beauty of the beautiful Annapurna region!

We will  meet in Kathmandu, and then fly to Pokhara, driving to Gandrukbwhere our trekking adventure begins. During these days, we will be hiking off-the-beaten trail, passing through forest of blooming Rhododendron, with the possibility of watching many different species of animals and birds.

We will also enjoy spectacular panoramic mountain views, with a great variety of landscapes, from forests to high alpine scenery.Along the way, we will be staying at traditional “tea houses”.

This fantastic trek takes you to the amazing Muldhai view point (3637m), from where you will be able to enjoy stunning panoramas of the Pokhara and Mustang valleys. The Muldhai viewpoint offers the closest views of the impressive Annapurna and Dhaulagiri ranges.

You will be amazed by the view of high mountains and snow-capped peaks, but this area not only boasts a gorgeous natural beauty; it is also culturally rich, with the unique traditions and culture of the Gurung and Magar ethnic groups. The Muldhai viewpoint Trek will definitely be an experience of a lifetime!

Our trek will continue to Ghorepani and the beautiful Poon Hill viewpoint, trekking back to Pokhara, where we will have some time to relax at this beautiful city, before returning to Kathmandu.

On the last day of our tour, you will enjoy a mountain flight to Mount Everest region! This unique fixed-wing flight takes deep into the Himalayas, as close as five nautical miles from Everest, flying into valleys close to the rock face. A true once-in-a-lifetime experience! Then, back to Kathmandu, you will have time to visit some World Heritage Sites and discover the city.

So what are you waiting for? Are you in for this amazing tour in Nepal? Just book your trip and get ready for an unforgettable experience!

About the Guide

 
 

I have been climbing since 1996, starting on the 8000m mountains in the Himalaya. I'm one of the few IFMGA/NNMGA certified mountain guides (Instructor) from south Asia, gaining my qualification from the New Zealand Mountain Guides Association (NZMGA) & Nepal National Mountain Guide Association (NNMGA).
I have successfully guided on Mt Everest on multiple occasions, and other 8000m peaks such as Mt Cho-oyu (8,201m) (3 times), Sisha Pangma (8,013m), Mt. Manaslu (8,163m), Mt. Dhaulagiri (8,167m), Mt. Makalu (8,463m), Mt. Lhotse (8,515m) and many more.
I have have also a strong international climbing experience and extensive knowledge of the logistics, planning and group dynamic that are also very crucial to successfully lead adventures in the Himalaya and around the world. I guided in New Zealand, Norway, France, Scotland, Thailand, Bhutan, Pakistan, India and Tibet.
I'm also a rescue expert and a technical trainer for the mountain guides training.
I very much like guiding my clients in remote places, where no tourist goes. I like also discovering new routes and peaks. Please have a look to the different trekking and mountaineering expeditions I propose and contact me if you want to discuss about them. I can of course also guide you in more 'classic' routes, just get in touch with me and let's talk about your wishes!
