Day by Day Itinerary:

Day 1: Bus from Pokhara (915m) to Nayapul (1050m), Trek to Tikhedhunga (1577m) approx. 4 hours

Drive from Pokhara to Nayapul by bus (approx. 1.5 hours) to begin your trekking experience in Nayapul (1050m) to Tikhedhunga (1577m) via Birethanti (1065m) which takes about 4 hours. On the way you will be able to see the high peaks of the Himalayas looming in the distance as the road winds its way up to the starting point of the trek. Packed with your camera, warm sweater and some water you head off, accompanied by your guide and local porters.


Day 2: Trek from Tikhedhunga to Ghorepani (2675 m) approx. 6 hours

After breakfast (not included) it's time to pack your things and head off on the trek. The first stretch is fairly easy as you walk downhill into the valley and cross the Burungdi Khola river. Make sure to stop and admire this spectacular mountain river which at times is a peacefully flowing stream but can fast become a wild churning rapid. Then get ready for a strenuous uphill climb to Ghorepani at 2675m.  


Day 3: Trek from Ghorepani to Poon Hill (3180m) to Tadapani (2675m) approx. 5.5 hours

Annapurna I (8091m), Annapurna South (7219m), Annapurna III (7855m), Machhapuchhre (6993m), Annapurna IV (7525m), Annapurna II (7937m), Lamjung Himal (6931m) and other numerous snowcapped mountain peaks. Return to Ghorepani for a rewarding breakfast (not included) and begin your trek to Tadapani (2650 m) through the deep forests of rhododendrons, bamboos and oaks. On the way, you frequently see waterfalls, rocks, wild animals, local birds and green landscapes. Tadapani is a small village surrounded by beautiful forests which grant you a magnificent view of Annapurna South, Hiunchuli, Fishtail, and Annapurna II and other snowy peaks. Stay overnight at a teahouse.


Day 4: Trek from Tadapani (2675m) to Chomrong (2140m) approx. 4.5 hours

Day 5: Trek from Chomrong to Bamboo (2340m) approx. 5 hours

Leaving Chomrong, the trail descends on a stone staircase and crosses the Chomrong Khola River on a swaying suspension bridge, then climbs out of the side valley. High above the Modi Khola on its west bank, the trail passes through the tiny settlement of Tilicho in forests of bamboo, rhododendron and oak. Climbing further on a rocky trail (beware of the stinging nettles) you reach three hotels at Sinuwa (2350m) where you can take a break to catch your breath and enjoy the scenery. Climb through rhododendron forests to Kuldi (2520m), once a British sheep breeding project) where you can stop in at the ACAP visitor centre and check post housed in stone buildings. In winter, it's common to find snow anywhere from this point on. Descend a long, steep stone staircase into deep bamboo and rhododendron forests. It is then a short distance on a muddy trail to Bamboo Lodge (2340m). Stay overnight at teahouse.


Day 6: Trek from Bamboo to Deurali (3230m) approx. 5 hours

Make a gentle ascent through bamboo forests with varieties of rhododendron and oak trees. The first town you reach is Dovan (2630m) where there are few lodges and campsites. Now you pass through a muddy trail which traverses high above the river. After short trek, you reach the Himalayan Hotel (2900m) and a small village. Beyond it, the trail ascends steeply to Hinko Cave (3160m), a huge overhanging rock that provides some protection against rain and avalanches. From here you will ascend another twenty minutes to reach Deurali (3230m).


Day 7: Trek from Deurali to Annapurna Base Camp (4170 m) approx 4.4 hours

Today the trail climbs on past the Machhapuchhare Base Camp (3820m) through the Annapurna Sanctuary completed surrounded by mountains.  A 2-hour trek from Machhapuchhare Base Camp takes you to the Annapurna Base Camp (ABC) at an elevation of 4130 meters. There, you will enjoy unobstructed views of spectacular mountain scenery.


Day 8: Trek from Annapurna Base Camp to Dovan (2630m) approx. 5 hours

Day 9: Trek from Dovan to Jhinudanda (1750m) approx. 6 hours

Descend from Dovan to Bamboo passing through forests with varieties of rhododendron, oaks and bamboo plants. After Bamboo, the trail goes steeply up to the Kuldi Ghar and then flattens out until you reach Sinuwa. Make a gradual descent to the Chumrong Khola and then follow a stone staircase for almost an hour to reach Chumrong. The last part of the trail takes you on a steep descent to Jhinudanda (1750m). Enjoy a well-deserved soak in the hotsprings at the bank of the Modi Khola located a short 20-minute walk from town.


Day 10: Trek from Jhinudanda to Birethanti (1025m), Bus to Pokhara approx. 5 hours
