Explore the area during the day and in the evening savor the cultural dinner. Stay overnight in the hotel in Kathmandu.

Today you shall have the sightseeing of this culturally rich valley of Kathmandu as well as the preparation of the trek that begins from the next day. In our city tour in a private vehicle, we shall be exploring the medieval era and older heritages; almost all of these are listed in UNESCO World Heritage Site List and some of them are the world famous pilgrimage sites. We have in list the famous Hindu temple of Pashupatinath, a temple located at the bank of holy Bagmati River, the stupas of Swayambhunath (a 14th century stupa, also known as Monkey Temple) and the Boudhanath Stupa (arguably the biggest stupas of its kind with several smaller Buddhist architectures), and probably the Durbar Squares of Kathmandu and Patan (a complex with royal palace, temples and other ancient heritages). Later in the afternoon, we shall have a pre-trip meeting with the trekking guide in the hotel. Bring with you the insurance policy of yours and other necessary documents. Also, clarify your doubts regarding the trek with the guide. Stay overnight in Kathmandu.

After exploring the culturally rich cites in Kathmandu valley, we shall head for the beautiful Pokhara valley which is the start point of this trek. We shall leave early in the morning for Pokhara after you being picked up by your guide and transferred to the tourist vehicle. We drive on the winding road along the torrential rivers and past the waterfalls, rural settlements, glimpses of the mountains to the far which comes closer as we approach the destination. You will be welcomed by the Fishtail Mountain and many other sibling peaks as you reach Pokhara. Drive to the Lakeside of Pokhara along with our representative who shall be picking you up from the Pokhara Bus Park and taking you to the hotel of your stay.

This day marks the beginning of our trekking in the breathtaking Annapurna region after a drive to the starting point in the settlement of Nayapul. In a drive of around 2 hours from Pokhara, we shall drive past rural landscape, famous Bindhyabasini temple, Tibetan refugee camp, and settlements with great scenery from Naudanda, Kanre, Lumle Bagar, Hemja, Phedi and others before reaching our starting point of Nayapul. En route the views of snow-capped mountains are always a treat to the travelers. After a short trek from Nayapul we reach to the settlement of Birethanti located at the confluence of Modi River and Bhurungdi River. Trekking upstream along the Bhurungdi River we start with the sub-tropical forest and pass through the bamboo and rhododendron forest, beautiful waterfalls and swimming fissure, and several small settlements as we ascend up the side of the valley to the village of Tikhedhunga. This entire walk shall be of around 4 hours. Stay overnight at a teahouse in Tikhedhunga.

The first settlement in this section of the trek is the village of Ulleri to reach which we shall have a steep trek for a couple of hours along the stone steps and later rather a gentle trek as we approach Ulleri. Once you find a rhythm ascending trail on stone steps shouldn’t be much of a problem. Ahead in the trek we walk past the small settlement of Phultise, a Magar village, good view of Annapurna South and Hiunchuli, and a crossing over Bhurungdi River before we reach another settlement of Banthati. The trek continues along the river as we keep moving ahead past the waterfalls, lush hills, valleys, cool shade of pine and rhododendron trees in the section of today’s trek which is rather a gradual trail as we reach the destination for today, the village of Ghorepani. This is an ancient stoppage for traders who used this place to feed their horses with water, leading this village within the Annapurna Conservation Area to give its name. We have the view Annapurna range from Ghorepani. Overnight Stay at Tea houses in Ghorepani.

Today you shall have a morning like never before as you shall have the most beautiful sunrise from the famous Poonhill to start the day with. Poon hill is derived as a hill from the ethnical group called as Poon, residents of Ghorepani and around area. Rising up earlier before the sun rises, we leave to the Poonhill armed with some lighting in hand and excitement in mind. A trek of around an hour takes you to the Poonhill and after securing ourselves a perfect spot for the view we wait for the sun to rise. Beginning with the silhouette of mountains, with each passing minute, we shall have the view of hills, gorges, crevasses and villages before the view of sun painting the mountain range with its golden rays. We have the tantalizing view of stunning mountains from west Dhaulagiri, Annapurna ranges, unique mountain Mt. Fishtail following the alluring view of Manaslu to Ganesh Himal to the east ranges of mountains. After capturing memories in the hill, we trek down to have a lunch and head forward to Tadapani which is our destination for today. Through the forests hosting the rhododendron, pine and bamboos all along the trail with short up and down, we reach the village of Tadapani. We shall be having our lunch in the teahouses along the route. Overnight stay in Tadapani.

We start our trek from Tadapani with the steep descent off the village through the dense forest decorated with the rhododendron trees, small streams, and creeks. When the trees blossoms in its full allure, the beauty is breathtaking as the forest is decorated with red and pink flowers. Other natural scenery including the blossoming cherries, depending upon the season of the trek, on the other side of the gorge on a slope is seen.

We shall explore this semi-modern settlement of this trail before we have an overnight stay in Ghandruk.

In this section of our trek, we shall have a number of ups and downs till we reach Pothana. Starting our trek we shall descent to the Modi River in a trail that is rather a steep downhill to the river. Crossing the river we have a march upward to the Landruk village, a village inhabited by mostly the Gurung community and few Brahmins also. The trek continues on a gradual descent through the terraced landscape and few settlements, crossing over a suspension bridge and traversing to the settlement of Tolka. Continuing ahead in the trail we pass through the stone steps, prayer flags and view of the mountains including the Annapurna South and Hiuchuli Mountain as we have a steep climb up to the settlement of Deurali.

Leaving the scenery of Pothana surrounded by forests and marvelous mountain views, we trek through dense forest and trek through the Australian camp and other small settlement to reach the famous village of Dhampus in a downhill trek. Dhampus is famous for the well-preserved culture of Gurung community and magnificent view of the lofty mountain peaks including the Annapurna ranges, Manaslu peak and Hiuchuli Peak.

After an exciting trek in the culturally rich and scenically diverse trek in the Annapurna region and having a well-deserved rest in the marvelous Pokhara city, we shall be heading for the Kathmandu valley to end this trekking journey.
