Itinerary

Have an early breakfast at your hotel, and you will be received by crew members and transferred to Ghandruk. The first half of the drive takes you through a pitched black-top road. Once you cross Nayapaul, the road towards Ghandruk is uphill and bumpy, but you will enjoy the view of the Himalayas and traditional villages and farmlands. 

Ghandruk is a Gurung village known for intriguing traditional stone houses and terraced fields showing the village lifestyle. 

Then commence the trek towards Chhomrrong. Start your trek walking across the dirt path as you cross some small villages and ascend through a stone staircase to Kimrung Danda, which offers an up-close view of Annapurna South (7219m), Machhapuchhre (6993m), and Hiunchuli (6441m). Then make your descent to Kimrung Khola through a forested path filled with oak and fir trees leading you to a suspension bridge. 

     After breakfast, begin today's journey by walking uphill through the village and then descend to cross a river through a suspension bridge. Once you cross the river, ascend on a nicely paved stone path leading to Lower Sinuwa.  

    The journey towards Upper Sinuwa is challenging, with a steep climb through ancient forests followed by a plain path with enjoyable views. 

    The trail continues downhill to Bamboo, through some waterfalls, and finally reaches Dovan. 

      Start with a short moderate walk to Upper Dovan. Then walk through the woods on a stone trail following classic inclines and declines trails of Nepal. You will then reach a gorgeous temple with a view of a waterfall cascading down the cliffs. While passing the temple, we pay respect to it. 

      Then start a steep ascend on stone steps towards Himalaya and to Hinku Cave, which was once a sleeping area for shepherds. Once you cross the cave, walk a short downhill to 
      the landslide zone with a view of a stunning waterfall. Since it's a landslide zone, do not stay in this region for too long. 

      To reach Deurali, you have to walk one last uphill.  

         Begin your day with a Nepali Breakfast. 

        Sensational views into the Annapurna Sanctuary gradually appear as you walk over a ridge and climb to the Machhapuchhre Base Camp (3,700m/12,136ft). 
        From here, Annapurna Base Camp is not too far. Enjoy a short relaxed walk on a grassy slope leading to the Annapurna Base Camp. 

        Later, enjoy the day exploring the area and rewarding yourself with a breathtaking view of the Annapurna South glacial moraine. 

          This particular day is the most rewarding one. The sun rises, and the first ray hits the mighty Himalayan peak, that moment is truly magical, creating a magical glitter 360 degrees panoramic view of the 10th highest mountain on earth - Annapurna I (8091m), Annapurna III (7555m) and Annapurna South (7219m), Gangapurna (7455m), Machapuchare (6993m), Baraha Shikhar / Annapurna Fang (7647m), Hiunchuli (6441m), Singu Chuli (Fluted Peak). 

          After enjoying a moment, have breakfast and we start retracing our way to Lower Sinuwa. The way to Lower Sinuwa may not seem that difficult but be careful walking downhill, especially the steeper one as it will definitely hit your knees and ankles. 

            After your morning routine, we hike towards the last part of the trail, Jinu Dhada.

            Walk slowly down to the river to make the way back to Chomrong led by a steep uphill on a stone staircase. 

            To Jhinu Danda it's a steep downhill. Once you cross the suspension bridge, the trek concludes and you will be transferred back to Pokhara.
