The next is the Pashupatinath Temple, which is one of the most sacred pilgrimage sites for Hindus around the world, followed by the Buddhist shrine of Boudhanath, which is one of the largest stupas in the world. Finally, late in the evening, we gather together at your staying hotel for a brief orientation on our hike for next day. Overnight in Kathmandu.

Ulleri Hill, with more than thousands of steps and continually rising rocks, will be a test of our resistance. We arrived in Ulleri in the evening. Overnight in Ulleri.

We wake up early in the morning to get to Poon Hill just in time to see the sunrise over the Himalayas.

From Poon Hill, we also get incredible views of Mustang, Pokhara and more than 20 of the highest mountains. After having a cup of coffee or local chai(tea), we return to Ghorepani. After our lunch here and then we walk to east and climb a ridge. Our path descends through rhododendron forests and waterfalls before reaching Tadapani. Night in Tadapani.

The trail begins with a descent into a large forest of rhododendrons. The forest path ends and our path opens onto magnificent terraced fields. We walk about 5 km upstream, pass through the waterfalls and arrive at a suspension bridge. Suspension bridges are very common in the hilly area and mountainous regions of Nepal. A few additional kilometers of uphill and downhill hiking, we will arrive at our destination, Chhomrong. It is a beautiful village just below the giant Annapurna massif. We will spend the night in Chhomrong.

Here before we reach Deurali we are going through a bamboo forest which is wet and cold. Then we climb sometimes a steep road. Only after arriving at the small villages containing hotel and lodges, 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, our path descends to a river before climbing Deurali. From here we can enjoy spectacular views of the surrounding hills and Mt. Dhaulagiri. We notice that the vegetation has become rare, allowing magical views of the valley, the river below and the cliffs adorned with waterfalls. Night in Deurali.

We follow the path of the valley in a regular climb. The trail adheres us to a rocky cliff and is sometimes steep. We walk along a fairly flat path before going to Machhapurchre base camp. From here we have an excellent view of the Mt. Hiunchuli, Annapurna South, Annapurna I, Annapurna III, the Gandharvachuli and Gangapurna mountains. We turn left and begin to climb slowly towards the Annapurna base camp. During our ascent, we can admire the spectacular views of the Himalayan panorama. Walking further, we reached the base camp of Mt. Annapurna and it's amazing. We are surrounded by beautiful peaks and the only way to get there is to cross the gorge in which we have just walked.
