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)
