With 1 guest: Vasily (Russia)

The route was opened for trekking as recently as 2012 and now has lodges along the trail, so it can be done as a teahouse trek. The trek has the advantage of drawing far fewer trekkers than the more well-known destinations like Poon Hill and Annapurna Basecamp. The trail ascends the ridge beneath Machhapuchhre (Fishtail) peak and boasts some of the best views anywhere of this picturesque mountain.
