  1. Sarangkot trek and Australian Base Camp:

The views shall include the Annapurna range, the Fishtail, Dhaulagiri, Hiunchuli, Lamjung Himal and other peaks. The mountains Annapurna and Dhaulagiri are top 10 highest peaks in the world.

  1. Gosainkunda trek:

Which trek fulfills your religious requirements with the beauty of nature? The answer is Gosainkunda trek. Many trek to this lake to take a dip in order to clear out their sins!
