Day to Day Itineary Details

Once you arrive in Kathmandu, a representative from the Taleju Adventure will pick you up at the airport and drop you to the hotel. In the afternoon you can rest, refresh yourself and have a good tea or coffee. In the evening, a welcome dinner will be held by the Taleju Adventure. For dinner, you can enjoy the authentic Nepalese cuisine. Overnight in Kathmandu.

We take an early morning scheduled flight to Pokhara, the beautiful city of the lake, and where we can enjoy a breathtaking view of the Himalayas from the right side of our plane. After landing at the Pokhara airport, we will drive to Naya Pul (1 hour and 20 minutes) and begin the trek. From Birethanti, we walk to Ghandruk, a beautiful village inhabited mainly by the Gurung community. Weather permitting, we also visit the Gurung Museum today. Night in Ghandruk.


At this point we will stroll for about an hour to Kimrungdanda. On the way we can enjoy excellent views of Annapurna South, Hiunchuli, Fishtail Mountain (Machhapuchhre) and Ganggapurna. A strong descent takes us to Kimrong Khola. After another strong stroll from Kimrong Khola to Chere Danda, we descend for a while and then it is a smooth walk to Chhomrong. Chhomrong is a beautiful village located in the lap of the gigantic Annapurna. We will spend the night in Chhomrong.


We descend by 2500 stone steps and cross the bridge over Chhomrong Khola. From there, it's a difficult climb for Sinuwa. Then we cross a beautiful forest to Kuldihar, then we descend easily to bamboo. Bamboo Night on this day.


We crossed a humid and cold bamboo forest, then climbed regularly with some steep slopes. Only after arriving at the Himalaya region, the forest opens up and we are again exposed to the sun with an impressive view of the glacier river. It is a steep climb through a much drier forest before reaching the Hinku cave. From there, we can see the trail descending closer to the river before returning to Deurali, the most picturesque part of the day. The vegetation is sparser, allowing magical views of the valley, the river below and steep cliffs at the top of the rocks covered with bands of waterfalls. Night in Deurali.


Climb gently up the riverbed and then up a steep path to the side of the mountain. The walk from Bagar to Machhapuchhre Base Camp is hard. From the base camp of Machhapuchhre, we have excellent views of the majestic Machhapuchhre and Mt. Hiunchuli, Annapurna South, Annapurna I, Annapurna III, Gandharvachuli and Gangapurna are certainly gratifying experiences. The vegetation disappears on our way to ABC and the road widens when we enter the Annapurna Sanctuary. From there, we have a sensational view of the almost vertical south face of the Annapurna that rises above us. The sanctuary has a dynamic view without anything preventing the 360 degree panorama. From the base camp, we once again can enjoy a fascinating view of Machhapuchhre, Annapurna South, Annapurna I, Hiunchuli and other peaks. Overnight at Annapurna base camp.


From the Annapurna base camp, we retrace our steps towards the bamboo. Today's descent is downhill, so it should not be very difficult. In addition, we will always have the company of this extraordinary landscape to cheer us up. Bamboo Night should be fun.

From Bamboo the journey is slightly uphill to Kuldighar, followed by a descent to Chhomrong Khola. Then we climb the stone steps that lead to Chhomrong. The path then descends to Jhinu Danda, where we will rest at night. Today we will have the opportunity to enjoy the hot springs, just 15-20 minutes walk from Jhinu Danda to soothe our aching body. We will spend the night in Jhinu Danda.


From Jhinu Danda to Naya Pul, we can enjoy the beautiful mountainous landscape of western Nepal. We can have a lunch on the way to Naya Pul. Our walk will end at Naya Pul, where we will board Pokhara in our vehicle. Overnight in Pokhara.


We fly to Kathmandu in the afternoon. Once we land in Kathmandu, than you will be transferred to the hotel. You can spend your day quietly or make last-minute purchases or explore the Kathmandu area upon time permits. To celebrate the success of our trip, we will have a farewell dinner at night. Overnight in Kathmandu.


Our trip to Nepal ends today. A representative of the Taleju Adventure will drop you at the airport approximately 3 hours before your scheduled flight. On the way back, you have enough time to reflect on your journey back to Annapurna Basecamp and plan your next adventure in the wonderful country of Nepal.
