|•||Kande to Australian Camp to Pothana to Dhampus to Phedi (or reverse) is an easy trek for those that do not want to try the more challenging treks. This trek offers great views of the World Peace Pagoda and Lake Fewa on clear days as well as a chance to meet Nepali life in the countryside. Australian Camp and Pothana are small villages with small pubs and great views of Mount Fishtail and the large Annapurna Mountains that are over 8,000m. It is recommended to spend a night in each location to enjoy the sunrise and the sunset. The hike from Kande to Australian Camp is more steps, while the hike from Dhampus to Phedi is a dirt road, so you may want to consider doing this trek in reverse.|
|•||Upper Mustang, the former Kingdom of Lo that has a culture very similar to Tibet, has amazing Trans-Himalayan scenery although it is a difficult trek because of high altitude, exposed terrain and continual strong winds. This trek, which is accessible via a flight to Jonson from Pokhara, requires a restricted area permit, making it less favorable for budget travelers.|
Although camping treks are possible, they are not recommended except for special circumstances. Camping treks require significant additional support personnel and equipment.
A trekking peak is a mountain under 7,000 meters. Most require an ice axe and crampons to climb. Additionally, special Peak Climbing permits are required. Trekking Peaks require a qualified "climbing guide", permits and deposits to cover camp waste disposal.
