When you land at the Tribhuvan International Airport, you will be greeted and welcomed by our staff member. He will help you get to your Hotel in the city. There is nothing else planned today, you may check into your Hotel and relax. Overnight stay at the Hotel.
You will be transferred to the airport for your early morning flight to Pokhara. The short scenic flight takes about 30 minutes. Pokhara is amongst the most famous cities of Nepal, and it is also often referred to as “the Tourist Hub” of the country. Upon landing at Pokhara, you will begin your trek to Ghandruk- a Gurung town from where the views of the Annapurna I (8091m) and the Himchuli Peak (6441m) are absolutely amazing. Trekking along verdant bamboo forests and crossing terrace farms laden with wet rice, barley, and maize, you will also cross several small settlements along the way, like Nayapul and Lumle. Overnight stay at the guesthouse.
From Ghandruk, you will follow a steady uphill-and-downhill climb through lush woodlands and rhododendron-laden trail to Chhomrong. Today might be a rather tough day of trekking on uneven trails. Initially, the trail is paved with slate stones and after a while, you will reach the top of the hill from where you can overlook at the gaping valley below. After a steep downhill walk, you will cross the river and arrive at the isolated settlement of Kimrong. Chhomrong is situated about a 90 minutes’ walk uphill from here. Overnight stay at a guesthouse.
The trail continues towards the Chhomrong Khola. Crossing the river and descending up 2,500 stone steps carved into the hillside, we will reach Sinuwa. All along the journey, you can catch amazing sights of the Machhapuchhre Peak (6997m), the Annapurna Himal (8091m) as well as the Himchuli Peak (6441). After passing Kuldighar, the trail is an easy downhill walk towards Bamboo. Overnight stay at a guesthouse.
Passing through amazing lush, damp and wet Bamboo forests that form a dense green canopy above the trail, you will ascend steadily downwards along steep sections that are cut across the hills. You reach the Himalayan Hotel and with a steep climb, you will reach the Hinku cave. From here, the trail drops down towards the river again and turns uphill to reach Deurali. Shrubs of magnolia and small rhododendron trees cover the trail and wildflowers add a colourful patina to the wet rocks along the terrain. Overnight stay at a guesthouse.
Climbing gently alongside the riverbed, you will be making your way over a mountainside towards Bagar. From here, the trail ahead leads towards the Machhapuchhre Base Camp. It is a somewhat strenuous trek. From the Machhapuchhre Base Camp, the Annapurna Base Camp is situated at a distance of about 2 hours. Views of the Machhapuchhre Himal (6997m), the Himchuli Peak (6441m), Annapurna South (7219m), Annapurna I (8091m), Annapurna III (7555m) and the Gangapurna Peak (7454m) from the base camp of Machhapuchhre are quite spectacular. Along the trek through the Annapurna sanctuary, you can get a sensational view of the near-vertical south face of the Annapurna towering above in a hauntingly beautiful way. Trekking through an amazing landscape, you will finally reach the Annapurna Base Camp from where the sights of the Annapurna massif, as well as many neighbouring peaks, are splendid. Overnight stay at the Annapurna Base Camp.
From the Annapurna Base Camp, we will retrace our steps back towards Bamboo. Trekking through the sanctuary, you can take in the moist wetland feel of the landscape, where the trail passes over small brooks and rivers and mighty trees shadow the trail overhead with branches covered in lichen, orchids, and moss. The trek back towards bamboo is downhill, so it isn’t very difficult. Overnight stay at a guesthouse.
Tracing our steps back, we will trek uphill from Bamboo towards Kuldighar, from where we will descend down again towards the Chhomrong Khola. Climbing the stone steps once again to Chhomrong, we will follow the trail towards JhinuDada- a beautiful tranquil village that is famous for its natural hot springs. Overnight stay at a guesthouse.
From Jhinu, you will trek along the beautiful countryside towards Nayapul. Distant views of the Annapurna Mountains loom up quite dramatically and the wet farms brimming with rice plantations provide the hamlets with a rich natural pulchritude. From Nayapul, it is an hour’s drive to Pokhara. When you reach Pokhara, in the evening, you can also enjoy a beautiful boat-ride on the pristine Phewa Lake and explore the lake-side area where there are many restaurants that cater to many different continental cuisines as well as cultural programs. Overnight stay at a Hotel.
You will say goodbye to the Annapurna Mountains one last time as you fly back to Kathmandu. Upon your arrival back in the capital, you can spend the time as you please, exploring the city on your own or relaxing. You can visit different landmarks of the city as well if you want. Overnight stay at the Hotel in Kathmandu.
