This trail was developed to support local communities in the Annapurna-Dhaulagiri region. The trail passes through less visited area of the region around the more well-known and touristy trek to Poon Hill. The lodgings along this trail are small community lodges and home stays, so don't expect plush mattresses with an attached bathroom, but what the stays lack in amenities they make up for in cultural experience and exchange. The trail passes through two spectacular Himalayan viewpoints Mohare Danda and Khopra Dana. Both of these hills have a lodge at the summit so you can wake up step outside and enjoy the magnificent sunrise view with a cup of hot tea in hand, and without the predawn headlamp illuminated trek required for many other viewpoints like Poon Hill. To reduce this trek to 11 days select the 'Tatopani Finish' side trip.

Side trip Tatopani Finish: Follow the trail down to the west from Khopra Danda to finish your trek at the hot springs at Tatopani. This route requires one less day than trekking via Ghandruk to get back to Pokhara but increases the time on the road.

Weather Conditions in February

change start

February has a slightly higher chance of precipitation than January and a slight increase in the chance of clouds, but in general it is typically a very dry month. While there is little rain, skies in the hills and valleys further from the high mountains can be hazy from dust and pollution. At high altitudes, temperatures can drop to well below freezing. Even during the day, temperatures may not rise much above freezing, if at all, and the snow that does fall doesn’t melt and can become hard and icy. This can make crossing high passes more difficult. During this season it may be wise to bring crampons or at a minimum a good trekking pole.

At a glance
On average there are 3 days with precipitation in February. The highest point on the trek is Khopra Danda at 3640 m. During February, expect high temperatures of around 7.6°C (46°F) and lows down to -9.4°C (15°F) at Khopra Danda.
