Now, we will set in the direction of Annapurna Base Camp as we leave Pokhara’s vibrant life. We will start with a drive to Nayapul, a one-hour drive. Nayapul is the starting point of our Annapurna Base Camp Trek.

We will join the riverbed of Modi River to reach Birethanti. There we will stop for a while before getting back on the trail. Walking through the banks of Bhurungdi Khola to Hille and Tikhedhunga’s steep stairs, we will reach Ulleri. We’ll end the day here in one of the teahouses.

Following breakfast, we’ll ascend a climb that is dotted with Oak and Rhododendron trees. Along the day, several Gurung villages like Banthati and Nangthanti will pass by.

Pushing ourselves for a couple of more hours, we will finally step into Ghorepani Village. The village is one of the famous villages for homestays and cultural exposures in Nepal. Our evening in the village will become more magical by the spectacular mountains visible from there. Overnight in Ghorepani.

Day 6: Morning Hike to Poonhill & Trek to Tadapani (3201m) | 7hrs


We’ll wake up a little early today for an exciting morning hike to Poonhill.

Day 8: Trek from Chhomrong to Dovan (2,600m) | 6hrs


We’ll start the day all excited with a descent to a river, Chhomrong Kola. Right after crossing the river through a suspension bridge, we’ll begin an uphill climb that takes us to Khuldi Ghar. On a clear day, we’ll see breathtaking mountains and hills.  

Next, we do a steep walk over a steep stone staircase to reach the site full of green bamboo forest, Bamboo. The two hours of a gradual climb from there will bring us to Dobhan, the place to end the day’s trek. Overnight in Dobhan. 

Day 9: Trek from Bamboo to Deurali (3,200m) | 5-6hrs

Day 10: Trek from Deurali to Machhapuchhre Base Camp (3,700m)


From Deurali, we’ll now move towards Annapurna Sanctuary and Machhapuchhre Base Camp(MBC). This day will see us crossing 3500m+ altitudes so that we will trek slowly and calmly. 

As we trek ahead, we’ll come across the glacier and rocky sides. Though it is a little tough to trek on, the place is quite rewarding.

Day 12: Trek from Bamboo to Jhinu Danda (1800m) | 3-4hrs


Now we leave Bamboo as well via an easy downhill trail. Losing the altitude gradually and enjoying the same view all again, we’ll descend to Jhinu Danda. There is a natural hot spring in Jhinu Danda, which will heal our exhausted bodies. Overnight in Jhinu Danda.

Day 13: Trek from Jhinu Danda to Nayapul and Drive to Pokhara | 2-3hrs Trek
