Itinerary

Arrive in Kathmandu where you
are met at the airport for transfer to
your hotel.

Today enjoy a guided tour of
the city. Visit the banks of the sacred
Bagmati River and Boudhnath Stupa:
the biggest Buddhist monument in
Nepal and home to many Tibetans in
the valley.(B)

Fly from Kathmandu to
Pokhara from where you drive to
the start of the trek at Kymchi. Over
the next week you ascend through
beautiful forest, picturesque valleys,
friendly villages and extraordinary
mountain views. The trail heads
through the Guriung village of
Ghandruk before entering a forest trail
to Tadapani offering super views of
Annapurna South, Huinchuli and the
‘Fishtail Peak’ of Machhapuchhare.
You continue through forest to
Deorali where you climb above the
tree line on open alpine ridges to Ghorepani. From here, an early
morning sunrise excursion to Poon
Hill above your lodge provides one
of the most spectacular panoramas
in Nepal. A sea of peaks lines the
horizon, the Dhaulagiri Himal, the
Annapurna range, and the magnificent
peaks of Manaslu – a stunning vista
encompassing three mountains over
the magic 8,000 metre mark. From
Ghorepani it’s downhill all the way
following the old trading route from
Tibet to the village of Ulleri.

From Ulleri take a steep
descent to the valley and finish the trek
at Birethanti from where you transfer
by bus to Pokhara. Here you have
two nights to relax or explore the town
close to the shores of Lake Phewa.

Fly back to Kathmandu.

Your trip ends in Kathmandu
after breakfast.(B)
