Itinerary

Please note that this is a sample itinerary and may be subject to change depending on weather conditions.
Day 1: Nayapul to Ulleri

The beginning of your journey!

  • The drive to Nayapul is around two hours. After this short drive, we pack up the bags for porters and start our trip. We walk through the lush, green Modi river valley, past waterfalls with plunge pools that invite you to swim. The ascent of the steep staircase to Magar village of Ulleri (2,070m) is a tough one for the first day but you will be rewarded with breathtaking views of the valley below and the peaks of Annapurna South and Hiunchuli. Overnight at Lodge.
Day 2: Ulleri to Ghorepani

Beautiful forests of Oak and Rhododendrons accompany your journey

  • The trek today is a gentle climb through pasture and cultivated fields. After Banthati the trail then continues to ascend more gently, through fine forests of oak and rhododendrons forest to Ghorepani (2,840m). Overnight at Lodge.
Day 3: Ghorepani to Poon Hill and Tadapani

Jaw dropping sunrise from Poon Hill is worth the early start

  • An extremely early start today is repaid with unobstructed sunrise views of the Himalayan mountain range. After spending an hour at the viewpoint we return to Ghorepani where we consume a much needed hot breakfast and then the trek to Tadapani (2,610m) begins. The trail ascends up to Deurali pass and descends steeply through dense moss-covered forest rich with birdlife to Tadapani. Overnight at Lodge.
Day 4: Tadapani to Sinuwa

Up is the only way onward!

  • From here on out till ABC, the road only goes up. The trek today will be 6-7 hours ending at an altitude of 2340m
Day 5: Sinuwa to Deurali

Almost there!

  • The last stop before ABC, Deurali sits at 3200m but the journey there will only take 4-5 hours!
Day 6: Deurali to ABC

You've made it!

  • About 4-5 hours from Deurali, the goal of the trip has been attained! Bask in the accomplishment of having done what you've set out to do and explore ABC with travelers from all around the world.
Day 7: ABC to Bamboo

It all goes downhill from here...

  • The descend begins! Trek back down to 3200m and be rewarded with a car ride that brings you at Bamboo at 2340m
Day 8: Bamboo to Jhinu Danda

Every step you take is a step closer to no more walking

  • No car today unfortunately but you will find yourself at 1690m at the of the day! This will be a 7-hour walk back down.
Day 9: Jhinu Danda to Ghandrung

Hot Spring

  • Rest your weary feet going to Ghandrung when passing the Jhinu Danda Hot Spring on the way. The walk will take about 6 hours.
Day 10: Ghandruk to Nayapul then Pokhara

It's over...

  • Quicker than you ever expected, you will find yourself at Pokhara and the end of the trip. Only a 4-hour walk is required before a transfer over to a vehicle for a 2 hour ride.
