Day 1: Australia –airplane-takeoff– Kathmandu

Today, depart Australia for Kathmandu, Nepal!

Upon arrival at the airport, you will be met and transferred to your hotel for check-in.

Day 2: Kathmandu  (B)

After breakfast, we start our tour in Kathmandu’s famous Durbar square and then onto Swayambunath (Monkey temple) in the afternoon. Kathmandu is a wonderful mix of the ancient & the new. This includes western influences that sometimes makes visiting the capital an interesting place to visit as the old stubbornly jostles for its place with rising attractions from Europe & the west. On return to hotel, you will have time to shop for and hire trekking equipment if needed.

Day 3: Kathmandu – Pokhara (B)

This morning we drive along the scenic Trisuli and Marsyangdi Rivers towards Pokhara (approx. 6 hour drive). Take in the breathtaking views of Ganesh Himal and the Manaslu peak in the distance. Pokhara is a tourist’s paradise full of natural as well as cultural heritage sites such as lakes, caves, & temples of Buddhist and Hindus along with stunning mountains. On arrival into Pokhara, the city of lakes, we will transfer to the hotel and you can relax for the rest of the day and enjoy this beautiful town of serene lakes.

Day 4: Pokhara – Nayapul – Trek to Tikhedunga (B,L,D) 

After having breakfast at the hotel, we start the drive to Nayapul which takes approximately 1.5 hours. We then start the first part of our hiking out to Tikhedunga (1577m) via Birethanti (1065m). This is a fairly easy flat hike as we pass through several small lively villages and settlements. After some time, we will ascend gently to the final destination of the day and overnight at the guesthouse. Approximately 4 hours trekking.

Day 5: Trek to Ghorepani (B,L,D)

We start our trekking and ascend steeply for the first 2 hours and then ascend gently passing through Ulleri (2070m) and Banthanti. This path gives us breathtaking views of Machhapuchhare or Fish Tail (6997m), Hiunchuli (6441m), and the grand Annapurna (7219m) south on the way. Our trail now gets quite easy going as we pass through rhododendron and shadowy forests amidst the cackling of birds before the final gentle ascend to the camp. Approximately 6 hours trekking.

Day 6: Ghorepani – Poonhill – Tadapani (B,L,D) 

Today, we hike to Poonhill (3232m) to enjoy the sunrise views over Mt. Dhaulagiri (8167m), Tukuche Peak (6920m), Nilgiri (6940m), Varaha Shikhar (7847m), Mt. Annapurna I (8091m), Annapurna South (7219m), Annapurna III (7855m), Machhapuchhare (6993m), Annapurna IV (7525m), Annapurna II (7937m), Lamjung Himal (6931m) and other numerous snow-capped mountains. Poonhill has always been a symbol of beauty for the Annapurna region. We then hike down to Ghorepani, have a hot breakfast at our lodge and trek to Tadapani (2650m). Most of the trail is through blooming rhododendron forest; the beautiful flower makes the jungle colourful in spring when they bloom.  Overnight at a guesthouse. Approximately 6 hours trekking.

Day 7: Tadapani – Chomrong (B,L,D)

After breakfast at the lodge, start todays trek by descending gently all the way through rhododendron, oak and other kinds of dense forests. We hear the chirping of different kinds of birds on the way to Kimrung Khola. We then ascend steeply and walk at a flat level for about 45 minutes with gentle steep paths in-between all the way to Chomrong – the gateway to Annapurna Base Camp, situated at the base of the Himalchuli. Approximately 5 hours trekking.

Day 8: Chhomrong – Himalaya (B,L,D)

Today’s trek starts with the trail descending on a stone stairway for the first 1.5 hours and crosses the Chhomrong Khola on a suspension bridge, then climbs out of the side valley. High above the Modi Khola on its west bank, the trail passes through forests of bamboo, rhododendron and oak. Climbing further on a rocky path we will reach Sinuwa, at 2350m & then we trek gently through the forest and descend a long, steep stone staircase into deep bamboo and rhododendron forests to reach Bamboo and walk on gently towards Dovan and Himalaya. Approximately 7 hours trekking.

Day 9: Himalaya – Annapurna Base Camp (B,L,D) 

We start our trek as the valley widens and becomes less steep and you can see the gates to the sanctuary from here. As the trail continues into the sanctum, it crosses two avalanche tracks on a narrow trail that hurdles up against the cliffs. After a short trek we reach Bagar (3310m), a green meadow with some abandoned hotels. The normal trail follows the left side of the valley. Here the trail appears gently ascending until Machhapuchare Base Camp (3820m), where we enjoy some of the best landscapes on trek. Enjoy the view of Mount Hiunchuli (6441m), Annapurna South (7229m), Annapurna I (8091m), Annapurna III (7555m), Gangapurna (7454m) and Machhapuchhare or Fish Tail (6997m). The path follows through alpine meadows and after some distance, our trails go gently up. After a short trek, we begin to approach Annapurna Base Camp at (4170m.). Congratulations, you now have reached the Annapurna Base Camp! Approximately 6 hours trekking.

Day 10: Annapurna Base Camp – Dovan   (B,L,D) 

After breakfast at the guesthouse, we will visit the Base camp and surrounding views. From here the views of the Himalayas from the base camp is amazing! We then start our trekking back to the Dovan, which takes about six hours but is much easier as we go down. You should have no problem reaching Sinuwa from Annapurna Base Camp in a single day however; we have chosen this route as some trekkers may have problems descending due to shaking or wobbling legs that could cause fatigue. Approximately 6 hours trekking.

Day 11: Dovan – Jhinudanda (B,L,D)  

Today we continue our trek passing through forests with varieties of rhododendron, oaks and bamboo plants. The trail then goes up steeply for about an hour but quite flat again until Sinuwa. We trek gradually descending to the Chhumrong Khola and we have to follow a stone staircase for almost an hour to reach Chhumrong. The last part of the trail is steep down to Jhinudanda before checking into the guesthouse. Free time or you could go to the Hot Springs to take a refreshing bath in the warm natural hot waters. Approximately 6 hours trekking.

Day 12: Jhinudanda – Nayapul – Pokhara (B,L) 

Today is your last day of trekking. The first part of the trek is a descent then it’s flat land until Birethati, where we stop for lunch. We then continue walking for about 30 minutes to Nayapul, where your transfer will be waiting to take you back to the civilization. Pokhara is the city of lakes and natural wonders. Tonight is at leisure.

Day 13: Pokhara – Kathmandu (B,L,D) 

An early start today for your transfer back to Kathmandu on a tourist bus. The journey will take approximately 6 hours so relax and rest your weary muscles after a long trek and enjoy the scenery. On arrival in Kathmandu, check in to your hotel and the remainder of the day is at leisure.
