Take this chance and enjoy an incredible trekking experience in Annapurna, which will take us to the Annapurna Base Camp, starting your trek from the beautiful city of Pokhara passing through several hilltop villages along the way.
Since a long time ago, the Annapurna Base Camp is considered to be the home of gods by the locals and once you’ve reached the area, it does feel like the place has something divine. You will trek to the foot of the majestic Annapurna massif, walking past mountains of over 21,000 feet in altitude. You’ll get to discover a route where you’ll be able to visit all the beautiful villages on the way.
Day 1: Arrival
We will receive you at the airport in Kathmandu and take you to your hotel.
Day 2: Pokhara on a tourist bus
You’ll get to discover Pokhara, the famous tourist town on the bank of the Phewa Lake. We will get there in seven hours, where we will have to pass several green hills to get there. You will encounter many travellers in Pokhara on their way to enjoy Annapurna. Around the area, in the lakeside, you can enjoy incredible nightlife.
Day 3: Driving to Nayapool and trekking to Tikhedhunga
The trekking circuit around Mount Annapurna begins today, and we will have to drive to Nayapool village, but don’t worry, it’s only a short drive. We will walk six miles alongside forests and streams from here to Tikhedhunga, where our route begins.
Day 4: Trekking to Ghorepani
Walking up the steps all the way to Ghorepani for five to six hours will definitely put a lot of pressure on your legs. Because of this, we will stop at several villages for you to rest. The views that you will encounter in the forests and hills provide a very good distraction from your fatigue.
Day 5: Hiking to Poon Hill and trekking to Tadhapani
Poon Hill is at the village and we will trek to its summit. People usually say that the western part of the Himalayas look more beautiful than the eastern mountain ranges. After reaching the summit, we will trek towards Tadhapani. It takes about five hours to get here, but the views you’ll get here are worth the effort.
Day 6: Trekking to Chomrong
Today, we have to get closer to the Annapurna. A tough uphill is coming today, it will take about 5 hours. You’ll get to enjoy incredible views, that’s for sure.
Day 7: Trekking to the Himalaya Hotel
First, we have cross the Chomrong River and get into the Modi Khola Valley to be able to reach Dovan village. Past the village, we have to cross another river, the Modi Khola one. After that, we wil find the final ascent to the Himalaya Hotel. This will be a 6 hour trek.
Day 8: Trekking to Annapurna Base Camp
We will have to walk for the entire day to reach our goal. We will pass by the Mount Himchuli and the Mount Machhapuchhre. Once we get to the foot of the Annapurna massif, the view will be breathtaking; you will be surrounded by mountains over 23,000 feet. Now you know why the locals consider this place a home for gods.
Day 9: Trekking to Bamboo
We will take the same track back where we came through the other day. We will walk for six hours, crossing the the Modi Khola river and a forest to reach Bamboo.
Day 10: Trekking to Jhinu Hot Spring
