Max Group Size
Annapurna Base Camp is a popular trekking destination located in the Annapurna Conservation Area of Nepal. It is a 10-14 day trek that takes you through a variety of landscapes, including lush forests, terraced fields, and alpine meadows, before reaching the base of the majestic Annapurna massif.
Pokhara is located 5-6 hours from Kathmandu and serves as the gateway to the Annapurna region. It is also easily accessible by car and plane. Today's stay will be in a Pokhara hotel.
The vehicle will be arranged to get to the starting point of the trek. After about 2/3 hours of driving, arrive at the point and begin trekking towards Lower Ghandruk. It is the trail's largest village and can be reached in an hour. There are some tea houses there, and the rest are easily found ahead. The trek from Lower Gandhruk to Komrong is a gradual descent until the stream, after which the trail splits; take the right for a one-hour steep ascent to Komrong.
Chomrung is visible from Komrong due to its location on the ridge top. Start descending after breakfast and cross a stream ahead. Kimrong Khola is now reached after a half-hour ascent. Cross this section and follow Kimrong khola along the mountainside. Further up, the ascent is gradual, and Komrong can be seen on the other side; go higher for stunning views of rising peaks. Annapurna South, Hiunchuli, Machapuchare, and Gangapurna can all be seen from there. After a one-hour hike, you will arrive at the lodges at the beginning of Chomrung, which are located on the mountain's edge. Climb to the top and get a close look at Annapurna South. View Chomrung's entire village as well as the lovely village of Sinuwa.
Today, after breakfast, descend through stone steps towards Chomrung village, arriving in half an hour at Chomrung Khola. The Annapurna Sanctuary area is located above upper Sinuwa and has dense forests as well as some grouped tea houses. Now, gradually climb the muddy trail from Sinuwa to Bamboo until you reach a clearing after about 30 minutes. Descend until you reach bamboo in thirty minutes. The trek is through dense forest, and the ascent to Dovan begins near the end of the Bamboo Lodges. Cross several bridges and arrive in 10 minutes. There are lodges where you can spend a comfortable night.
Begin the trek from Dovan to Himalaya after breakfast. After a few minutes of trekking, cross the bridge and begin climbing; two routes lead to Himalaya after some short but steep ascents. Arrive in Himalaya and stop. Climb yp from Himalaya to Hinku cave, then descend for 15 minutes until snow patches are visible. Trek through the boulder region, leaving the alpine forests behind; only grass and bamboos can be found ahead. Descend over the small boulders. Cross Deurali's last lodge by climbing for a few minutes until the valley opens up; Gangapurna and Machapuchare can be seen from a distance from here. If you descend for more than 30 minutes, you will arrive at Bagar.
Today, eat an early breakfast and depart from Machapuchare Base Camp, but don't miss the color-changing sunrise view from there. The first 1 km of the trek is steep, but the trail gradually ascends from there. The final walk is on moraines and leads to Annapurna South. The Annapurna Base Camp is surrounded by snow-capped Himalayan peaks. Views of Annapurna I, Annapurna III, Annapurna South, Gandharvachuli, Gangapurna, and Machapuchare are spectacular. Get to the Annapurna glacier's edge and take in the scenery. Have dinner and spend the night there in peace.
Today's trek from Annapurna Base Camp to Bamboo will be the most difficult. Continue on the same path you took to reach Annapurna Base Camp. Pass through the Machapuchare Base Camp, Deurali, Himalaya, and Dovan. The descent is steep, and there are some short ascents before reaching Bamboo. You can spend the night there.
Wake up early today and post breakfast leave for Jhinu. Follow the trail to Sinuwa village and climb the steep steps to the checkpoint. It takes 45 minutes to get there; the descent is steep until Chomrung Khola, followed by a steep ascent to Chomrung. Check out of the office and then take the trail that leads upwards. After that, descend through steep steps for 2 hours to reach Jhinu. A forest will now be visible that faces Modi Khola. This location is well-known for its hot water springs.
The trek takes 4 hours to complete from Jhinu to Syauli Bazaar. Begin descending from Jhinu; ahead is the Kimrong Khola Bridge; cross it and follow the trail to Somrong. The trek is a mix of ascents and descents, with houses lined up along the way. Furthermore, the road splits, with one branch leading to Landruk and the other to Kyumi. Continue on the trail that leads to Kyumi until you reach a small village called Uppu Dandu. Descend the stoned path to Kalchane, where some tea houses can be found. Follow Kyumi's trail and you'll be there in about 30 minutes.
