Itinerary

Day One – Fly to Kathmandu

We will meet you in Kathmandu International Airport upon your arrival to Nepal and accompany you to your hotel. If you arrive early enough there will be some time for you to explore the city, relax in a cafe or restaurant, or see one or more of the seven World Heritage Sites in the Kathmandu Valley. In the evening, once all group members have arrived, we'll have a trip briefing in the hotel. It will give everyone a chance to meet each other as well.

Day Two – Rafting on the way to Pokhara

You will spend about 3 hours in a private minibus, heading out of Kathmandu and into the foothills of the Himalaya. Soon you will hear the distant rumble of the mighty Trisuli River – your highway to Pokhara. Get ready to get wet because we’ll be rafting for the next 3 hours. Why sit in a boring bus when you can hit the rapids to your destination? We will need to get out for the last couple of hours and sit in a boring minibus, but the adrenaline of the previous few hours will see you to Pokhara. You will spend the night here.

Day Three – Pokhara to Naya Pul, Trek to Ulleri

You will start with an early morning bus journey to Naya Pul. From here your trek begins! You will descend into the village of Tikedhunga (1,540m) where you can stop for lunch, before moving on to Ulleri to spend the night. You’ll be glad for the rest after the hill that gets you into this pretty village.

Day Four – Ulleri to Ghorepani

This is an exciting day! The rumored 3300 steps on the stone staircase to Ulleri the previous afternoon suddenly feel worth the effort, when you get your first glimpse of the beautiful Annapurna South summit (7219m). Once past Ulleri, you will hike on an through Banthanti to Nangathanti (2460m). Ghorepani (2750m) is a little further, and will be your final rest stop for the day. Historically, this town has been used by mule caravans as a rest and watering hole, on their way between Pokhara and Jomsom.

Day Five – Ghorepani to Poon Hill, trek to Tatapani

An early morning start (about 5am) will enable you hike up to the top of Poon Hill (3210m) just in time for sunrise over the Himalaya. This is the high point of your trek, both literally and with regards to the sights you will see. You’ll see the mountains slowly being bathed in the morning sun, before heading back down to Ghorepani to have breakfast, then trek to Tatapani where you will spend the night.

Day Six – Tatapani to Ghandruk

From Tatapani you will trek to Ghandruk, passing through beautiful jungle where you will see Langur monkeys who tend to be quite naughty and give you a lot of distraction while you head to Ghandruk. Your night here will be the last one outside of a city.

Day Seven – Ghandruk to Naya Pul, private bus to Pokhara

You will trek down from Ghandruk to Naya Pul, following a river for most of the day. After the initial descent from Ghandruk the day becomes quite easy and allows you to end the trek with some easy walking. You will spend the night in Pokhara.

Day Eight – Paragliding, fly to Kathmandu, on to home

You will start the day in a very exciting way, with a short hike up to Sarangkot, where you will go paragliding over Pokhara, seeing the beautiful sights of the Annapurna Mountain Range. This will take roughly an hour or 1.5 hours. After having this amazing experience you will head to the airport at Pokhara, getting back to Kathmandu and then on to your home country. It’s been our pleasure to host you on this adventure.
