TRIP INTRODUCTION

Annapurna Panorama Trek is the perfect easy trek option in the Annapurna region. This is among the most popular treks around Annapurna.

We will first enter the Annapurna conservation area from Nayapul and head for the popular mountain watching destination - Ghorepani. The highlight of Ghorepani is the hike to Poon Hill. This hill is the jewel of Annapurna Sanctuary Trek, providing stunning view of the mountains. The sight of the sun rising over the tall mountains is spectacular from Poon Hill. Ghorepani-Poon Hill trek is also a popular trekking alternative for those seeking a wonderful view of the mountains in a few days of light trek.

Pothana, a village of Gurung people, Tadapani  and Tolkha are other settlements ahead of Ghorepani. These places provide us a wonderful view of Mt. Annapurna I, Annapurna II, Annapurna III, Annapurna IV, Gangapurna, Annapurna South, Hiunchuli, Machhapuchhre, Lamjung Himal, Tukuche Peak and Dhaulagiri mountains.

Most of the trekking will take place in the ancient trade route between Nepal and Tibet. The villages on the road are rich in their unique culture and traditions. The homestay experience with the Gurung people will be unforgettable.

Other highlights of the Annapurna Panorama Trek include walking along the dense Rhododendron forests, sight of rare animals, plants and birds, the beautiful subtropical valleys, mountains streams and waterfalls.

Trip Route: Kathmandu - Pokhara - Nayapul - Ghorepani - Landruk - Pokhara- Kathmandu

Day to Day Itinerary

  • Day 01: Arrival in Kathmandu
  • 1,300 m

    Our representatives will pick you up once you land at the Tribhuvan International Airport in Kathmandu. After picking you up from the airport they will transfer you to your hotel on a private vehicle.  We will welcome you in the evening with typical Nepali dinner in a traditional Nepali restaurant. The dinner will be followed by cultural dance program.

  • Day 02: Sightseeing in Kathmandu Valley
  • Kathmandu has a rich history and culture that extends back centuries. It is also known as the city of temples. There are many ancient temples, monuments, stupas and palaces in Kathmandu. You will be accompanied by a guide on a day tour of the city. Major places to visit include the Pashupatinath Temple, Swayambhunath Stupa (also known as the monkey temple), Boudhanatha and the three Durbar Squares.

  • Day 03: Drive to Pokhara
  • 6-7 hours
    820 m/ 2,690 ft

    We will head for Pokhara today. You have two options – travel by jeep or by air. Travelling by jeep provides you an opportunity to enjoy the green hills and gorging rivers that follows the road. The travel takes 6-7 hours including an hour stop in between for refreshment. Travelling by air is shorter, takes about 30 minutes, and allows you to see the mountains from the clouds. You will, however, have to pay separately for it.

    We will check into our hotel upon reaching Pokhara and visit the Phewa lakeside in the evening.

  • Day 04:  Drive to Nayapul and trek to Tikhedhunga
  • Drive - one and half hours, Trek - 3-4 hours
    Nayapul (1,070 m/ 3,510 ft), Tikhedhunga (1,540 m/ 5,052 ft)

    Our trek begins today but we will have to drive for one and half hours from Pokhara to reach the starting point of our trek – Nayapul.

    The first half hour of the trek is easy and flat. It starts to go gently uphill from there. We first pass a place called Birethanti (1,080 m/3,543 ft). Going forward we will meet old and typical villages in the Annapurna region like Matathanti, Ramgai, Sudame, Hile and Tikhedhunga. Most of our journey to Tikhedhunga will be along the banks of the thundering Modi river.

  • Day 05: Tikhedhunga to Ghorepani
  • 6-7 hours
    2,860 m/ 9,383 ft

    We will walk to Ghorepani today. The road passes through dense forests and waterfalls. The waterfalls flow into the Modi river, which will again be at our company . We will cross the river via a suspension bridge and climb for a while to reach Ulleri village (2,080 m/6,824 ft). The road to Ulleri provides wonderful sight of the Annapurna, Hiuchuli and Machhapuchhre mountains.

    Ulleri is a busy village with shops for trekkers. Going past Ulleri we will reach other traditional villages like Banthanti (2,300 m/7,545 ft) and Nangethanti (2,450 m/8,038 ft). We will reach Ghorepani Village after walking through dense Rhododendron forest in the last part of the day. The whole forest is turned red by the blooming Rhododendron forest in spring. The view of the mountains from Ghorepani is exemplary.

  • Day 06: Hike to Poon Hill and trek to Tadapani
  • 6-7 hours
    Poon Hill (3,210 m/10,531 ft), Tadapani (2,590 m/ 8,497 ft)

    Poon Hill is a hilltop at a short hike from Ghorepani. The view of the sun rising over the mountains is magical from Poon Hill. We will wake up early and reach Poon Hill before the sun rises. Poon Hill provides a wonderful view of the Dhaulagiri I, II, III, IV, V, Dhampus Peak, Annapurna South, Hiunchuli, Barah Sikhar, Mt. Fishtail, Nilgiri South and Tukuche peaks.

    We will return to our hosts in Ghorepani after enjoying a blissful morning at Poon Hill. We will have breakfast and head for Tadapani. We will pass beautiful places like Deurali (2,990 m/9,809 ft) and Banthanti (2,520 m/8,267 ft) on our way to Tadapani. Our trail will be easy because we will mostly be walking downhill from Ghorepani.

  • Day 07: Trek to Tolkha
  • 5-6 hours
    1,940 m/6,364 ft

    We will head for Tolkha via Ghandruk today. The downhill path goes through deep Rhododendron forest. We will get a wonderful view of the Annapurna South, Hiunchuli and Fishtail mountains before reaching Ghandruk.

    Ghandruk is also known as the village of stone houses or the village of the Gurkhas. We will leave Ghandruk behind and trek down to Modi river. We will follow the Modi river and reach Kyumi, where we will have our lunch. The way is downhill until Landruk. It is a short steep climb from Landruk to Tolkha.

  • Day 08: Tolkha to Phedi
  • 4-5 hours
    1,130 m

    Our trekking begins after breakfast. We will head downhill to Deurali, where we will have a little coffee break.  We will stop for lunch at Dhampus. Dhampus is also a popular one day hiking destination because of its closeness from Pokhara. We will proceed to Phedi after lunch at Dhampus. A vehicle will be waiting for us at Phedi and it will carry us to Pokhara.

  • Day 09: Drive back to Kathmandu
  • We will return back to Kathmandu today. We again have two options to do so – a 30 minute flight or a seven hour drive. Flight provides wonderful mountain view but you will have to pay separately for it. The drive is longer but takes you to Kathmandu through green hills and riverbanks.

  • Day 10: Departure
  • You will carry the memories of Annapurna Trek with you and return back to your destination today. We will bid you farewell by organizing a small traditional Nepali ceremony and drop you at the Airport.
