Day 2: Fly from Kathmandu to Pokhara(820 to 870m) and Drive to Ghandruk(1,980 to 2,090m) from Pokhara

The scenic flight from Kathmandu to Pokhara and countryside rough road drive to Ghandruk

The flight from Kathmandu to Pokhara covers a distance of approximately 146 Km and takes only 30 minutes. We'll make the journey as early as possible, leaving plenty of time for recreation and refreshment in Pokhara before embarking on our driving journey towards Ghandruk.

The road from Pokhara to Ghandruk is about 56 Km in total length, with roughly 42.5 km being paved highway while the remaining stretch is unpaved and bumpy. As we head northwest out of Pokhara towards Napapul (the former starting point for treks prior to construction of road to Ghandruk), travelers can expect an adventurous ride with stunning views of greenery, streams, cliffs along curvy roads that wind through scenic countryside landscapes.

We will stop at various points midway for small tea breaks en-route to Ghandruk - a reputed Gurung village located within Annapurna region known for its picturesque scenery that warmly welcomes visitors despite cold weather conditions.

Once we arrive at this charming settlement nestled amidst beautiful surroundings filled with natural wonders like snow-capped peaks or rushing rivers below towering cliffsides overlooking everything around us it's easy understand why so many people come here seeking peace amid pristine wilderness areas where one can rest up before heading onwards toward Chhomrong on their next day's trekking adventure!

Day 3: Trek to Chhomrong(2,170 to 2,230m)

Scenic forest covered walking trail from Ghandruk to Chhomrong village

Ghandruk village offers not only a glimpse into cultural civilization but also breathtaking views of Mt. Annapurna South (7,219 meters) and Mt. Hiunchuli (6,441 meters), just 16-17 kilometers to the north of the village. To the northeast lies an impressive array of mountains including Mt. Gangapurna (7,455 meters), Mt. Annapurna II(7,555 meters), Mt.Machapuchare or Fishtail(6,993meters)and Mardi Himal(5,553 meter). These snow-capped peaks stretch continuously from left to right.

After crossing one hill past Ghandruk Village on our way to Chhomrong Village we reach Komrong Danda which provides us with even closer views all those aforementioned mountain ranges! From this hilltop(Danda)our trail inclines steeply downward until we cross Kimrong Khola(small stream). Then it's uphill again until we reach Chhomrong Village whereupon nearing its entrance once again all those above-listed mountains comes into view in stunning detail.

Our trek today takes us through centuries-old forests that are home to tiny yet beautiful settlements inhabited by indigenous people who have lived here for generations. The sights and sounds along our journey will be unforgettable as is lunching in one such settlement en-route before continuing onto another delightful hamlet called Bamboo. Vacationers should rest easy knowing that after arriving at peaceful Chhomrong & indulging in healthy food they'll be rested up for tomorrow's adventure!

Day 4: Trek to Bamboo(2,310 to 2,330m)

Damp walking trail through dense forest

When making the trek from Chhomrong village to Bamboo, expect it to take approximately 4-5 hours. The trail begins with a downhill walk on a stone-paved staircase until reaching a small stream flowing between Chhomrong village and Sinuwa. Cross over the short-span suspension bridge before gradually ascending through Sinuwa and Upper Sinuwa.

After passing Upper Sinuwa, the trail becomes quite straight; however, just around 1.5 km ahead of Bamboo we will again walk downhill. Throughout this portion of your journey you can expect dense old-growth forest that may make for damp conditions along less-bright trails. Being inside the forest most of the time, the view of mountains is rare to see from this section of the trek.

Despite these challenges nature will likely engulf any negative emotions or tiredness felt during your trekking experience! Once arriving in Bamboo rest up so that you're fully prepared for another day's worth of travels towards Deurali.

Day 5: Trek to Deurali(3,170 to 3,235m)

Riverside trail damp and rugged

As you embark on your journey to Annapurna Base Camp, today's trek will be a shorter one lasting only 3-4 hours before reaching Deurali. This is intentional as it provides our bodies with ample time to acclimate since we will be crossing an altitude of over 3000 meters from Deurali and beyond.

The trail passes through the side of a small river basin accompanied by lush green forests until we reach Deurali. The scenery changes after this point as mountainous terrain begins. As the trail progresses past Bamboo, vaporizing waterfalls can be seen cascading down on the left-hand side.

Today's trek concludes in just 6.5 kilometers of walking distance which allows us plenty of time for rest and preparation for tomorrow’s big day where we aim to reach up to ABC - Annapurna Base Camp!

Day 6: Trek to ABC (4,100 to 4,130m)

Rocky rugged trail with chilled thin air

From Deurali onwards, the rugged trail begins until we reach Annapurna Base Camp (ABC). Due to climate change impacts, vegetation can be seen until and a little above Machapuchere Base Camp (MBC). The dry and chilling wind of the mountain will kiss us before entering the base camp region.

After walking approximately 4.5 kilometers from Deurali, we will reach MBC where we'll get a glimpse of Mt. Annapurna South (7,071 meters), Mt. Annapurna Fang(7,647 meters) and Mt.Annapurna I(8,091meters), which is also the world's tenth highest mountain to our northwest direction.

Continuing our walk towards ABC with these views of mountains and iconic terrain is an unforgettable experience that makes this day one of utmost importance during the entire Annapurna Base Camp Trek. We'll admire both view & satisfaction for being able to step in one of world-renowned mountain bases.

Day 7: Explore ABC and Trek back to Bamboo(2,310 to 2,330m)

The magical view from Annapurna Base Camp and the downhill trek

The Annapurna Base Camp is a breathtaking location situated on the cliffside of South Annapurna Glacier, where the Modi Khola begins. From this vantage point, you'll be able to witness panoramic views of the giant Himalayan ranges up close.

Looking towards the west side of base camp, you can see Mt. Hiunchuli (6,441 meters) just 3.3 km away and Mt. Annapurna South (7,071 meters) at only 5.2 km distance followed by Mt. Annapurna Fange (7,647 meters), Mt.Annapurna I(8,091 meters), Mt.Annapura massif(8,064 meters ) and Mt. Khangsar Kang(7,193 meters)to north located just about 8-9km from ABC itself.

On the east side lies another beautiful sight with stunning peaks such as Mount Machhapuchhre or "Fishtail" stretching across from left to right along with other mountains like Mount Gandharba Chuli and Mount Annauprna II that stand tall in all their glory!

During golden hours when light cascades over these magnificent mountains casting majestic shadows upon them; it's an unforgettable experience! It will leave you breathless every time without fail!

After witnessing this awe-inspiring view we begin our downhill journey toward today's destination - Bamboo which is today's rest point.

Day 8: Trek to Jhinu Dada(1,667 to 1,740m)

Soak into natural hot-spring of Jhunu Danda to rejoice

After enjoying breakfast at the tea house in Bamboo, we will embark on today's downhill trail towards Jhinu Danda. This idyllic village sits just below Chhomrong where we spent our second nights of trekking. A highlight of this area is the renowned natural hot water pool known as Jhinu Danda Hot Spring.

The spring lies alongside Modi Khola and offers a truly magical experience surrounded by dense forest and sound of flowing stream. Immerse yourself in the warm waters to soothe your tired legs and body after a long day's walk – an unforgettable way to unwind amidst beautiful scenery.

After indulging in this unique opportunity, return to your hotel feeling relaxed and rejuvenated for tomorrow’s adventure en route to Pokhara.

Back to city just after few hundred meters walk.

After crossing the Jhinu Suspension bridge, which marks the last leg of our trek, we will make our way to Jhinu Jeep station. From there, we'll take a drive back to Pokhara before catching a flight back to Kathmandu on the same day. As part of our farewell celebration and in recognition of everyone's hard work and dedication throughout this adventure with Himalayan Adventure Therapy, an official dinner will be organized where feedback or appreciation can be shared with responsible officials.
