DAY 1 - KATHMANDU: ARRIVAL DAY

Welcome to Kathmandu, the lovely and historic capital of Nepal! We'll be at the airport waiting for you when you step off the plane, ready to transfer you to your hotel. You've had a long flight, so get some rest: your adventure begins tomorrow!

DAY 2 - KATHMANDU TO POKHARA

It's time to kick off our journey! The first leg of this adventure is a 6-hour bus ride from Kathmandu to Pokhara, where you'll rest up for our first day of trekking! We'll have a final briefing in the evening to go over details and answer any last-minute questions.

DAY 3 - POKHARA TO NAYAPUL, NAYAPUL TO HILE

The day starts with a transfer to Nayapul which is about one hour drive from Pokhara, where we'll take the first steps of our trek. The walking is easy at this stage, as we stroll through the Modi Khola River Valley. We trek to the small village of Hile to spend the night.

DAY 4 - HILE TO GHOREPANI

From Hile we walk to Tikhedunga and we'll cross a stream as the warm up to ascending the steep stone staircase to the scenic, quaint Magar Village at Ulleri. After lunch, our route wends through glorious blooms of rhododendron and imposing oak forests. We'll move slightly upwards in the direction of Nangethanti before scaling towards Ghorepani for dinner and sleep.

DAY 5 - GHOREPANI TO POON HILL AND TADAPANI

We'll be up before dawn today, but with good reason: our day kicks off with an excursion to Poon Hill and an indescribably wonderful panorama of three Himalayan peaks (Dhaulagiri I, Annapurna I, and Annapurna South II) illuminated by the glowing rays of sunrise. From here, we'll also be treated to views of the 6,000m-deep Kali Gandaki Gorge and the visual border of Nepal and Tibet as divided by the trans-Himalayan ranges. It's back to our lodge for a late breakfast, and then we're back on the trekking path! Our legs get a bit of a rest on the downhill walk towards lunch at Bathanti, which takes us through beautiful, deep forests, and then to Tadapani.

DAY 6 - TADAPANI TO CHHOMRONG

More downhill walking awaits us today as we again trek rhododendron and oak forests. We'll arrive at the lofty Gurung village of Chhomrong by lunchtime, giving you a bit of time to explore the fantastic views of Annapurna South and Machhapuchhre.

DAY 7 - CHHOMRONG TO DABAN

Another precipitous stone staircase guides our way today as we descend towards the Chhomrong Khola. We shift gears at that point and will climb in the direction of Modi Khola, traveling its west bank, and pass through leafy bamboo forests. More upward travel awaits us in the afternoon as we head towards Kuldi and then another staircase down to Dovan, where we'll rest after a vigorous day.

DAY 8 - DOBAN TO ANNAPURNA BASE CAMP

You'll feel the bite of the thin air today as we climb high above our starting point of Dovan, overlooking a river far below. We'll scale the lateral moraine of a shimmering glacier and then come down the other side to the glacier bed before reaching the Annapurna Base Camp. A breathtaking 4,130m above sea level, this is our stopping point for the night.
It's time to reap the rewards of your hard trekking work! Miles above earth, we have all day today to wander the base camp and drink in the beauty and majesty of Annapurna. The sunrise and sunset are spectacular displays of natural theatre, and not to be missed. Make sure your camera is charged!

DAY 9 - ANNAPURNA BASE CAMP TO BAMBOO

We'll savor one last fiery Annapurna sunrise before beginning our trek down the mountain. Our route today ends in the village of Bamboo, named for the dense forest of tall bamboo that surrounds it.

DAY 10 - BAMBOO TO CHHOMRONG

The stone staircases and their steep, unforgiving steps await us once again! We'll trek the bamboo forest, passing vibrant blooms of rhododendron, on our way to Kuldi. After lunch, we pass through Sinuwa and Modi Khola before an invigorating uphill climb towards Chomrong.

DAY 11 - CHHOMRONG TO GHANDRUG

From Chhomrong, we head back to Taglung, descending slowly through a forest to Kummu. It's back towards Ghandrung and one more hypnotically-lovely panorama of Annapurna South before our last night on the mountain.

DAY 12 - GHANDRUG TO NAYAPUL AND DRIVE TO POKHARA

The end of our trek is in sight. Villages and terraced fields dot the landscape at these lower altitudes, adding interest and variety to our last morning on the mountain. We'll pass through Syauli Bazaar and Nayapul before catching a ride back to Pokhara, where the comforts of a hotel ensconce you after a long and tiring journey.

DAY 13 - POKHARA TO KATHMANDU

The 25 minute flight from Pokhara to Kathmandu brings us back the way we originally came, ending again in a comfortable hotel. Your conquest of the Himalayas is complete: it's time for some rest! After an afternoon to nap and relax, we'll meet up one last time for a celebratory dinner at one of the town's finest Nepalese restaurants, where you can give us your feedback on the trek. In the morning, we'll make sure you catch your flight home with time to spare.

DAY 14 - KATHMANDU: DEPARTURE DAY

It's your last day in Nepal! Grab some breakfast, and then take in some last-minute shopping in Kathmandu. We'll make sure you arrive at Kathmandu International Airport with plenty OF time before your flight home. At this time, we'll say our goodbyes and bid you farewell, armed with warm memories and gorgeous photos to show your loved ones. END OF OUR SERVICES
