Itinerary:

Day 01.

Arrival in Kathmandu.

Flying to Kathmandu along the northern border of Nepal on a clear day is in itself an exciting and memorable experience as exotic panoramic view of snow-capped Annapurna mountain range peaks sprawls before you. The Nepali support team will meet you at the airport and escort you to your hotel.

Day 02.

Sightseeing of Kathmandu Valley.

Kathmandu, being a historical and cultural heart of Nepal, is a popular destination for tourists, trekkers and adventure seekers. The city presents a wonderful mixture of Hinduism, Tibetan Buddhism and Western influence in the Valley. Patan and Bhaktapur are its two major neighboring cities which bear immense historical, cultural and religious significance. There will be a half day guided tour to the famous & biggest Hindu shrine PASUPATHINATH, the largest Buddhist stupa in town BOUDHANATH, the 15th century palace of 55 windows and SOYAMBHUNATH. In the evening, a trip orientation meeting will be organized.

Day 03.

Flight/Drive to Pokahara & drive to Phedi, trek to Dhampus [1700m].

From the hotel we head to the domestic terminal of Kathmandu Airport for the 45 minute flight to Pokhara. It is a sensational flight, with the peaks of the Greater Himalaya clearly visible through the right-hand window as we travel westwards. Particularly prominent are Manaslu and the Annapurna range as we approach the landing field at Pokhara.From Pokhara, we set off immediately by bus for Phedi, which means 'bottom of the hill'. To get us into the swing of things, we'll walk for a couple of hours, principally uphill, on a long flight of stone steps, to the village of Dhampus, our first camp of the trip. [3 hours walking].

Day 04.

Trek to Landrung [1550m].

Beyond Dhampus, we get our first clear views of the mountains ahead, as we ascend through a forest on a trail which is often made up of steep stone steps. Passing through Pothana, we reach a clearing on a pass, at a place called Deorali [which means 'pass'!]. At this point we are high up on the east side of the Modi Khola, the river which flows out of the Annapurna Sanctuary. From here, the trek continues to descend until we reach the picturesque Gurung settlement of Landrung, which offers spectacular views of Annapurna South and Hiunchuli. [4 hours walking].

Day 05.

Trek to Chomrong [2100m].

We descend all the way to the river and cross over a new suspension bridge. Our route now climbs quite steeply, high above the river, through bamboo forest and isolated farmsteads. The teahouses at Jhinu provide a welcome opportunity to stop for a drink and rest on this long, hot climb. We reach the crest of this particular climb at Daaulu [2180m] and Chomrong, our camping place, lies a little below and to the north. There are many chalet-style, wooden lodges at Chomrong, which look out towards the prominent Machhapuchhare. [4 to 5 hrs walking].

Day 06.

Trek to Dobhan[2500m].

After dropping down to the Chomrong Khola on steep stone steps, the trail climbs again through terraced fields and forests of bamboo and rhododendron. Today's walk is always either up or down, on steep paths which are often paved. Sometimes there are views of the Annapurnas and Machhapuchhare ahead, but often the forest is too thick to allow more than a tantalizing glimpse. We pass through Khuldigar and Bamboo then reach Divan for the night (5 hours walking).

Day 07.

Trek to Deurali [3200 mtrs].

From Dovan we climb along the west bank of the roaring Modi Khola to Himalaya hotel. Climbing steeply we soon reach a fire-blackened overhang which has been walled in to make a small lodge, knowm as Hinku cave. The trail raises continuely now, as we near the entry to the sanctuary path. Tonight we stop Deurali.

Day 08.

Trek to Annapurna Base camp [4130m].

We pass by bagar, then Machhapuchare Base camp, a level and grassy moraine platform with several lodges. We further continue along a grassy valley and reach Annapurna Base camp.

Day 09.

Trek Dobang / Bamboo .

From Annapurna Base camp, we retrace our trail to Dobang.

Day 10.

Trek to Chomrong [2100m]

Today we continue up the vast gravel riverbed of the Kali Gandaki, passing mule trains travelling down from Tibet. The medieval Today we backtrack the up and down stage to Chomrong. [5 hrs walking].

Day 11.

Trek to Tadapani [2600m].

Nice easy walk from Chhomrong to Gurjung, cross Kyumu Khola and climb to Chunle for lunch break. rom here enter Rhodendron forest to Tadapani.

Day 12.

Trek to Ghorepani [2880m].

Leave Tadapai gently, decend to a stream then gradually climb to Banthanti. From Banthanti the trail steppens as we climb through Rhodendron forest to Deurali before dropping down to the lodges at Ghorepani. Along the way there are fine views of the mountains including Machhapuchere. (5 hours walking).

Day 13.

Trek to Hile.

It is a must for those who stay at Ghorepani to make the climb up to the celebrated view point of Poon Hill [3195m], and dawn is the best time to go. We arrange a wake up call for 5:00 am and head up the well marked track by the light of our head torches. The first light of dawn illuminates Dhaulagiri and Tukuche Peak with a surreal pink glow. You may be able to buy coffee and breakfast from some enterprising Nepali who has carried his produce up to Poon Hill to take advantage of the morning trade. Leaving Ghorepani, the route is downhill and mostly on stone steps through dense forest. We pass the occasional lodge in a clearing before reaching the small village of Ulleri. From Ulleri, a very steep section, [with 3767 steps!], leads down to Hille on the Bhurungdi Khola.

Day 14.

Trek down to Nayapul and get in the Himalayane Envpro Vehicle to drive down to Pokhara / Overnight Meera hotel.

A further descent on big steps takes it out of your legs, but is followed by a more level stretch beside the river, which leads eventually to Birethanti. Forty minutes beyond Birethanti we arrive at the road and meet up with our transport for the one hour ride back to Pokhara. We have evening free to wander by the lake. [6 hrs walking].
