Along the way, there are incredible views of the snowcapped peaks, which include Annapurna I (10th highest mountain in the world) along with Annapurna II, Gangapurna, Machhapuchhre and more.

The trail starts out following the Marsyangdi River as its boils and races down its watercourse. The train passes through forests of oak, pine and rhododendron. There are deer in the lower elevations and in the alpine regions, you will see blue sheep. If you are lucky, you may even see a snow leopard, which inhabit the snowy regions of the mountains.

Bird lovers will enjoy their time up in this area as there are blood pheasants, multi-colored impeyans, koklas and many more birds. During migration season, it is quite common to see birds who normally reside in Siberia. And there are plenty of colorful butterflies.
