Itinerary

Upon your arrival in Kathmandu, you will be greeted at the airport and transferred to your accommodation. Take some time to settle in and perhaps explore the bustling streets of Thamel, a popular tourist area in the city. Prepare for your upcoming adventure in the Annapurna region by resting and acclimatizing to the altitude.

In the morning, you will embark on a scenic drive or a short flight to Pokhara, the gateway to the Annapurna region. Pokhara is a serene lakeside city nestled against the backdrop of the majestic Annapurna and Machapuchare mountain ranges. Spend the day exploring the lakeside area or just relaxing by the tranquil Phewa Lake.

Your journey continues as you drive to Nayapul, the starting point of your trek. From Nayapul, you'll begin your trek towards Jhinu. Along the way, you'll pass through picturesque villages and lush forests. Jhinu is known for its natural hot springs, which you can soak in to soothe your muscles after the day's trek.

Leaving Jhinu behind, your trek leads you through enchanting rhododendron forests and terraced fields. You'll ascend gradually towards Sinuwa, enjoying breathtaking views of the surrounding mountains as you gain elevation.

Today's trek takes you further up into the heart of the Annapurna Sanctuary. You'll hike through the dense forest, where you may spot various wildlife species, and eventually reach Deurali. The air gets cooler as you ascend, and you'll feel closer to the towering peaks.

This is the day you've been eagerly anticipating. You'll make your way to Annapurna Base Camp (ABC), which is surrounded by towering peaks and offers one of the most breathtaking mountain panoramas in the world. Spend your time at ABC soaking in the stunning views and savoring the accomplishment of reaching this high-altitude haven.

After a memorable sunrise at ABC, you'll start your descent, retracing your steps through Deurali and Sinuwa. You'll gradually descend through the forest, and tonight's destination is Bamboo, where you'll find comfortable lodges for a good night's rest.

As you continue your descent, you'll once again pass through Jhinu. This time, you can opt for another dip in the natural hot springs to relax and rejuvenate. It's a well-deserved treat after several days of trekking.

Leaving the Annapurna region behind, you'll trek back to Nayapul and then drive back to Pokhara. Enjoy your last evening in this picturesque city, perhaps with a delicious meal by the lakeside.

You'll return to Kathmandu, either by a scenic flight or a long drive, depending on your preference. Once back in the capital, you can do some last-minute shopping, explore more of the city, or simply relax before your departure.

On your final day, you will be transferred to the international airport for your journey back home. Bid farewell to the beautiful landscapes and warm hospitality of Nepal, carrying with you cherished memories of your Annapurna adventure.
