Tour description :

Annapurna Base Camp trek is the most favored trek in Nepal. Mt. Annapurna is named after Hindu Goddess Annapurna. Annapurna is the goddess of Grains/food. It is very meaningful that the Annapurna region is so rich with lush green cultivated land, natural resources and beauty. Think of splendid waterfalls, pinky rhododendron bushes, neat farmlands, soothing vista of the tallest mountain all through this trek. So, resurrect yourself from workhalism, hang up your working boots and get ready for this electrifying adventure amidst one of the most fascinating landscapes on earth. Nepal Trek Ways is here, to make this a never-before experience for you! Annapurna base camp trek commences from Nayapul in Pokhara. The sight of golden sunrise from these mountain ranges is an incredible scene. The trail traverses several Gurung and Thakali villages giving you opportunity to explore the rich local culture. As you move forward on the expedition you will pass through deep gorges, rich bamboo and rhododendron forest , narrow forest trails and beautiful mountain vistas before finally arriving at Machhapucchre and Annapurna Base Camp.

Tour’s Program :

Today is your arrival day. We welcome you upon your arrival at Kathmandu’s Tribhuvan International Airport. Transfer to Hotel in Kathmandu. Prior to the activities, arrange a meeting with your guide for briefing about the necessary formalities on your tour and trek program. Depending upon your arrival time you may spend free time visiting nearby historic/Countryside areas.

Meet your culture guide for Half day sightseeing in Kathmandu World Heritage sights. Explore UNESCO enlisted Hindu and Buddhist temples, observe age old Newari architectures, friendly people; their culture and lifestyle. Our Trek Leader/Guide meets you in the afternoon for the trek briefing and for the final trek preparation. In the evening sample a delicious traditional Nepali Welcome dinner in authentic Nepali Restaurant with the cultural dances that represents different customs and music instruments of Nepal. Private vehicle is there for you to pick up and drop in Hotel with our staff. Overnight in Kathmandu.

We take a morning flight to Pokhara. On board enjoy the mountainous vista; Mt Annapurna and Mt. Fishtail (Machhapuchchre) in their snowy attire, almost glaring at you as you glance out of the plane’s window! After meager 25 minutes, you will set your feet in one of the most appealing cities of Nepal. Pokhara happens to be the most longed tourist destination for holiday. But today, we are not exploring the city as we have something else on cards. Our transport vehicle will drive us away from the airport and take us to Nayapul (meaning new bridge). Here we gear up a bit and commence our trek to the Ghandruk village. We embark on the downhill route through the forests for about 6 hours and arrive at Ghandruk by mid noon. It is a beautiful valley dwelt mostly by the people of ‘Gurung’ community and located to the north-west of Pokhara. Spend the later half of the afternoon exploring the village as well as paying a visit to the headquarter of Annapurna Conservation Project and Traditional Gurung Museum. While at Ghandruk, you can relish the view of Annarpurna, Machhapuchchre and Himchuli. Overnight at teahouse in Ghandruk; breakfast, lunch and dinner included.

Resuming our trek from Ghandruk, we embark on the uphill route to Ghandrukot for about an hour and then take an immediate descent to the Kimran Khola (river). Surrendering to the frequent ups and downs along the route, we make yet another ascent from Kimran Khola, after which we are gifted with a comfy walk for about an hour. Pleasure is short-lived; hence we again have to take a steep ascent to eventually reach Chhomrong, which is the gateway to the Annapurna Sanctuary Trek, and lies tucked at the very base of Himal Chuli. Gurungs are the main inhabitants of Chhomrong and it is the last permanent settlement in the valley. Overnight at teahouse in Chhomrong; breakfast, lunch and dinner included. Dovan, a small settlement in the Annapurna region of Nepal.

Trailing along the Modi Khola (river), we kiss good-bye to the inhabited foothills of Chhomrong. We the cross a suspension bridge and head to Sinuwa Danda. From here, we embark on a seemingly flatter trail picketed with rhododendron bushes alongside and make an ascent to Khuldighar. What a bumpy trek it is!! The route again slides very steeply down a rocky bank, then to our relief, flattens out, running through bamboo bunches and rhododendron forests, finally getting us to Dovan. Overnight in teahouse in Dovan; breakfast, lunch and dinner included.
Making a trivial ascent through the bamboo bunches and thick rhododendron forests up the side of gorge, we start our fifth day. We continue our way forward as we pass by the Himalaya Hotel and cross the small bridges over two different streams. As we traverse through some solitary places through the forest, we might get a chance to spot some wild lives like pigs, deer and rarely, snow leopards. Climbing further to the Hinko cave (3100 m), we approach Deurali. Overnight at teahouse in Deurali; breakfast, lunch and dinner included. Machhapuchhre Base Camp, a famous trekking destination in the Annapurna region of Nepal, which lies at the base of Mt. Fishtail (Machhapuchhre).

A bit tough day for us compared to the hikes we have had so far! But we needn’t worry so much as the toil definitely pays off when we get to behold the mesmerizing site of the Fishtail Mountain. Commencing our trek to the Machhapuchchre Base Camp, we make our way up a river bed and then follow the steep route alongside the mountain. It is important that we be on our toes as we move ahead because this happens to be an avalanche zone and a slight wind and rain could leave us stranded and secluded within the mountains! As said earlier, although the hike is comparatively scratchy, we will be compensated by the soothing vistas of Mt. Himchuli, Mt. Annapurna, Mt. Gangapurna and the very classic, Mt. Fishtail. Overnight at teahouse in Machhapuchchre Base Camp; breakfast, lunch and dinner included.

This 2 -3 hrs of trek takes us through the trail that sans vegetation and we can see the snow streams here and there. We follow the wide route into the Annapurna Sanctuary and then ascend few huts alongside a moraine which gets us to the base camp of Annapurna. From here, we can relish the unobstructed mountainous panorama of Annapurna, Himchuli and Machhapuchchre. This region gets the nomenclature of “Annapurna Sanctuary” as it is fortified from all sides by the mountainous hoop of Annapurna range. Besides, it is regarded to be sacred as there is a belief that it happened to be the dwelling place of many deities. This region receives seven hours of sunlight a day and hence has a diverse eco -system. Overnight at teahouse in Annapurna Base Camp; breakfast, lunch and dinner included. Bamboo, a small village in the Annapurna region of Nepal.
Thank god, the ascents are all over and now we will get set to make our way back following the downhill routes through the Machhapuchchre Base Camp, Deurali and Dovan till we arrive at Bamboo. On the way, we get to relish the views of waterfalls, Mt.Fishtail and Himchuli. Overnight at teahouse in Bamboo; breakfast, lunch and dinner included.
From Bamboo, we continue our descent to Jhinu Danda via Sinuwa and Chhomrong. The Annapurna Base Camp trek continues back through beautiful rhododendron forests down to Sinuwa. From Sinuwa, the trail leads us slightly upward to the lower Chhomrong. We then trudge up a thousand stone steps to upper Chhomrong and then wrap up the day’s trek making a final relieved descent to Jhinu Danda. Overnight at teahouse in Jhinu Danda; breakfast lunch and dinner included. Pothana, bustling village in the Annapurna region of Nepal, dotted with plenty of tea houses.
Though most of our return path is an easy descend, we are circumvented by trivial ascends at times. Crossing the suspension bridge over the Modi Khola (river) gets us to the village of Landrung. We advance further, passing through Tokla and then making a slight ascent to Bichkok Deurali, which offers a splendid view of Mt Dhaulagiri. From here, we trail down to Pothana, a charming cluster of good hotels. From Pothana, you can relish a special view of Mt. Fishtail; it is special in the sense that, from this trajectory, the mountain appears more like a Matterhorn than a Fish Tail. Overnight at teahouse in Pothana; breakfast, lunch and dinner included.
Today’s trek is easy in the sense that all we need to do is walk down, may be its even easier as we are too ecstatic to conclude our trek. We follow the downhill route to Dhampus and then further descend down until we reach Phedi. It is just a three hours’ walk, so shouldn’t be too exhausting! Once at Phedi, we can find our transport vehicle waiting. We hop in and after about an hour, we get to Pokhara. You can check in to the hotel and freshen up you self. If you aren’t too jaded with the long walks, you can still stroll around this happening city. Overnight at hotel in Pokhara; breakfast included.
We will catch a flight to Kathmandu from here and after another 25 minutes on air, we touch down at the domestic wing of the Kathmandu airport. A representative from Nepal Trek Ways will receive and transfer you to your designated hotel. You have the entire day at hand and can spend it as you please. You would probably want to get groomed a bit and do some souvenir shopping at Thamel, a popular spot for souvenir shopping in Kathmandu, Nepal. In the evening Nepal Trek Ways will host a peppy farewell dinner party. Enjoy the succulent traditional Nepali cuisines and a cultural extravaganza! Cut loose but sleep tight. Overnight at hotel in Kathmandu; breakfast and dinner included.
If you intend to expand your trip and try out our other adventurous packages like - Bungy Jumping, Mountain Biking, Jungle Safari, White Water Rafting, Golfing & Paragliding etc., this will be your last day in Nepal. Our representative will escort you to the airport, three hours prior to the flight schedule. We wish you a safe flight back home and look forward to having the pleasure of serving you again!
