If you have a few days longer holiday, trek to Annapurna Base Camp via Punhill offers you a breathtaking mountain vista and also to experience how nature changes in a short time. You have a chance for a perfect view of Mt. Dhaulagiri (8167m) – the so-called White Mountain, which is the seventh highest mountain in the world and the highest standing mountain within the border of a single country Nepal. It is 34 km far apart from Annapurna I (8091m), the 10th highest mountain in the world. These two high mountains make the deepest gorge in the middle called Kali Gandaki.
