I was very impressed with the trek, it was all (and more) that I had hoped it would be. A serious, longish trek into remote mountains. Loved it! Big thank you to all concerned. Well organised trip. If anything had gone wrong (which it didn't) I would have been in safe hands. Wonderful mountain walking in remote areas. Hardly saw other trek groups until we rejoined the Annapurna Circuit in last few days.

Our trek starts from steamy Arughat Bazaar as we walk northward up the Buri Gandaki valley, sometimes following the river along the valley, but more often climbing high as the trail snakes along the increasingly steep, forested gorge. At the village of Lokwa we turn off from the main circuit and trek up the restricted Tsum valley towards red-roofed Ra-chhen Gompa. This serene and beautiful valley is home to people of Tibetan descent, and their distinct dialect, culture and traditions have remained intact as their remote location has left them isolated from the modern world. We rejoin the circuit and from Ghap start to climb steeply towards our high point, the Larkya La (5,213m/17,103ft) with time to acclimatise and explore the attractive Tibetan villages of Sama Gaon and Samdo en route.
