Annapurna Panorama Trek Itinerary
Day 1 Arrival at Kathmandu Airport and transfer to hotel. Overnight at hotel.
Day 2 Drive from Kathmandu to Pokhara. Driving approx. 7 hours by tourist bus. Overnight at hotel.
Our travel to Pokhara, the lake city, is on a tourist bus, a ride that should last for around six hours. With breakfast and lunch on the highway, the bus stops at the bus park in Pokhara. The Lakeside, the tourist hub, is a ten-minute ride on any vehicle. This is where we stop for the night.
Day 3 One hour drive to Nayapul by car/van, trek to Ulleri (1,960 mt.). Walking 5-6 hours. Overnight at guest house.
Nayapul, about an hour and a half away on a vehicle, is our trailhead for this trip. Sudamé, where we stop for lunch, is about two and a half hours further to the North on a trail that is a gentle ascent. It is the numerous waterfalls that should attract the attention of many. With two hours up to a steep climb towards the end, the walk arrives in Ulleri. The Himalayas on sight from this village is the magnificent Annapurna South and Mt Huinchuli. This is where we stop for the night.
Day 4 Ulleri to Ghorepani (2,835mt.). Walking 6-7 hours. Overnight at guest house.
The walk today asks us to go through a dense rhododendron forest throughout. The panorama continuously changes as we traverse through the hills, going around a corner then another up a steady uphill. First, it’s the Annapurna South and Mt Huinchuli replaced by Mt Machhapuchré (the Fishtail) next. It is not Banthanti, a settlement on the way, but Nangethanti, which arrives sometime later, where we stop for lunch. We move on aiming for Ghorepani after lunch. Trudging on a similar route, we reach Ghorepani, situated amidst a forest largely dominated by rhododendrons. This is where we stop for the night.
Day 5 Early morning hike to Poon Hill (3,210 mt.) to see 220 degree panoramic view of Annapurna and Dhaulagiri range and sunrise, trek to Tadapani (2,520 mt.).Walking 4 ½ hours. Overnight at guest house.
Early morning is a time for a walk to Poon Hill for that sunrise view: the brightening of the tops of the Dhaulagiri Range in an array of bright shades with the peaks of the Annapurna Range to the East in shadow. Back in Ghorepani and we leave for Tadapani after breakfast. It starts out up a steep incline for almost two hours before eventually arriving atop a ridge. It’s a downhill from here on through a forest one more time until Banthanti, where we stop for lunch. After a downhill for some time then a sharp uphill, we arrive in Tadapani. This is where we stop for the night.
Day 6 Tada Pani to Jhinudanda (1,850 mt.). Walking 5-6 hours. Overnight at guest house.
Today, we start out a steep descent. Don’t be surprised if the legs wobble a little. Through the greenery, the downhill stops and the trail turns into a steep ascent, followed by a steady one before taking all to Gurjung, where we stop for lunch. From here on, JhinuDanda is about two hours away. Our stop for a tea break in ChomrongVilllage on the way pays off well: Mt Machapuchré to the right and the Annapurna and Huinchuli right before us. JhinuDanda is now about an hour of a sharp decline away. Once in JhinuDanda, where we stop for the night, the hot springs nearly by on the banks of Modi River is inviting for a relaxing dip.
Day 7 Jhinudanda to Pothana (1,800m). Walking 6 hours. Overnight at guest house.
JhinuDanda to Pothana (1,890 meters; 6-hour walk)
Our destination today is Pothana; but we stop in Landruk, a village that has the magnificent Annapurna South as well as the Huinchuli on display. This is where we stop for lunch. Our lunch is followed by a gentle uphill all the way to a ridge and the next slightly less than an hour brings us to Pothana. With the whole of the Annapurna Range in view, this is where we stop for the night.
Day 8 Pothana to Phedi and drive to Pokhara by car. Overnight at hotel.
Around three hours to Phedi and it’s time for lunch. The half an hour travel to Pokhara from here on is on a taxi. Pokhara is where we stop for the night.
Day 9 Drive to Kathmandu by tourist bus. Overnight at hotel.
Our return to Kathmandu is on a tourist bus, a ride that should last for around six hours. With breakfast and lunch on the highway, the bus stops in Sorhakhutté in Kathmandu. Thamel, the tourist hub, is a stone’s throw from here.
Day 10 Transfer to Airport for your final departure from Nepal.
Depending largely on your travel fixture, you will be leaving for Tribhuvan International Airport for your departure from Nepal either in the morning or in the afternoon or in the evening.
