The short trek van Phedi to Dhampus is also known as the first trekking day of the Mardi Himal tour, but it is in itself a wonderful and recently new opened trail to enjoy one of the finest panorama’s of the Annapurna Himalayan mountain range. It takes just a 3 hrs hike all the way up to really feel near the Himalaya’s. Passing Gurung settlements, dense forest, rice terraces and a thousand stone steps. That’s what it takes to get the reward for this beautiful sunset and sunrise the next morning!
