It is a panoramic thrill flying into Kathmandu on a clear day. The views of snow-capped mountain peaks sprawling down below you are almost ecstatic, beginning a whole chain of memorable experiences that stay with you for a long, long time. Our representative and driver will meet you at the airport and escort you to your hotel. At the hotel, you will be briefed about your daily activities.
This morning we will take a walk down to the famous Durbar Square, just 30 minutes from the hotel. This is also home to the Kumari, or Living Goddess, who can sometimes be seen as she peers shyly from her temple surroundings. There's just so much to see and take in on your first day, so we have left most of it free for you to explore in small groups.
Fly from Kathmandu to Pokhara and drive the pleasant riverside village of Birethanti(1000m), at the edge of the Annapurna trekking region
Our first day on the trail, we trek through oak and rhododendron forests and follow the Bhurungdi Khola (river) to Banthanti.
We continue along the Bhurungdi Khola and ascend Ulleri Hill, eventually arriving at Ghorepani where there are perfect views of the Annapurna range.
Rise early to climb up Poon Hill to watch a magnificent sunrise over the Himalaya. From west to east you can see Dhaulagiri, Tukuche, Dhampus Peak, Nilgiri, Annapurnas and Machapuchare - breathtaking! We then continue to Tadapani, trekking through open grassland and deep forests. On the way there are excellent views of Annapurna South and the Manaslu range.
Today, we have a steep descent through rhododendron forest to the valley bottom, with fabulous mountain views. Later the path climbs steeply again before we arrive at the lively trekking hub of Chomrong.
Our trail descends on a stone staircase and crosses the Chomrong Khola before climbing through deep rhododendron and bamboo forests to Doban.
The goal today is to pass through the gates of the sanctuary. We trek up the muddy surface of the Modi Khola, then along a rocky trail to Hinku cave. From here we climb towards the base camp of Machapuchare. There are stupendous views of the Hiunchuli, Annapurna I & III, Gangapurna and Machapuchare, the 'fish tail' mountain peak
We continue our exploration of the sanctuary and ascend to the Annapurna Base Camp.
Retracing our steps we return along the only route to Bamboo
Descend to Chomrong, continue to Jhinu hot spring where we can enjoy a hot spring bath and soothe our trekking muscles!
Our last full day trekking, we follow the route to the village of Pothana.
A short morning trek to pick up our vehicle for the journey to Pokhara. Rest of the day at leisure in this beautiful lakeside city.
we wake early and get ready for the flight back to Kathmandu.
