Detailed Itinerary:

day 01 | Pre-trip meeting
Your guide will welcome you at your hotel for a pre-trip meeting. You are introduced to any porters you request and we talk about the trekking route. A great time for any questions or requests.

Note: Please make sure you bring your passport to the meeting along with three copies and a readable copy of your travel insurance policy. During this meeting we sign the legally binding trip form as well as the non-liability disclaimer.

overnight at a hotel

day 02 | Drive to Pokhara - 7 hrs.
Early morning we pick you up at the hotel and bring you to the bus station. The bus to Pokhara leaves at around 7:30 am. Once in Pokhara you will see a beautiful valley set on the banks of the Phewa Lake. It is also known for its panoramic views of Annapurna, Machhapuchhre (with the shape of a fish tail) in the north, Dhaulagiri in the west, Lamjung Himal and Manaslu in the east. Pokhara is smaller and much less hectic than Kathmandu, hence it is the perfect starting point for our trek.

overnight at a hotel

day 03 | Drive to Nayapul and trek to Tikhedunga - 3 hrs.
After a 1-hour drive with a private vehicle from Pokhara we begin our trek at Nayapul. After a short 15-minute walk along the banks of the Modi Khola we reach Birethanti (1015m), a large village with many shops and teahouses. From there, the trail continues through the village and follows the northern bank of the Bhurungdi Khola. The trail climbs steadily up the side of the valley to Hille at 1495m and after a short climb, we reach Tikhedhunga at 1570m. Today’s walk is relatively short and easy, a prelude to the trekking experience in the Annapurna region.

overnight at a mountain lodge

day 04 | Trek to Ghorepani - 5 hrs.
We move on towards the steep climb to Ulleri, a large Magar village at an altitude of 2070m. From this point the trail ascends more gently through fine forests of oak and rhododendrons towards Banthanti (2250m). From there we trek towards Nangethanti (2460m) and one more hour later we arrive at Ghorepani (2840m) where we spend the night.

overnight at a mountain lodge

day 05 | Hike up to Poon Hill and trek to Tadapani.
Very early in the morning, if possible an hour before sunset, we start a one hour hiking to Poon Hill (3210m) for a brilliant mountain range spectacle. This vantage point provides an stunning panorama view of the sunrise over the high Himalayas. Here we spend about an hour before we return to Ghorepani for hot breakfast. Then we pack our bags again and set off for a climb along ridges, and through pine and rhododendron forests to Deurali (2960m). After that we descend to the Banthanti when after we turn off to Tadapani.

overnight at a mountain lodge

day 06 | Trek to Chomrong - 5 hrs.

Today the trail climbs on past the Hinko Cave, and then Machhapuchhre Basecamp. This isn’t a real basecamp since climbing the mountain is not allowed. This area is totally surrounded by mountains and known as the Annapurna Sanctuary. After trekking two hours from Machhapuchhre Basecamp you are in Annapurna Basecamp (ABC) at elevation of 4130m. There you have very much rewarded unobstructed views of mountain scenery. It’s spectacular.
