    Trek to Annapurna Base Camp/Route Overview

    Soaring into Kathmandu, a vibrant city buzzing with life is the starting point of your grand adventure. A friendly face from the Nepal Hiking Team greets you, whisking you away to your comfortable hotel for the night. But the real magic awaits...

    The next day, an exciting flight to Pokhara. Secure a window seat – trust us, you won't regret it. Witness the majestic peaks of the Himalayas rise above clouds, their snow-capped tops shining like a crown. As you touch down in Pokhara, a jeep takes you towards Birethanti, the official gateway to your trek. Here, your trek begins, where you go through beautiful forests, waterfalls, and swimming holes and reach Ulleri at the end of the day.

    Your journey unfolds as you meet fellow adventurers, sharing laughter and stories on the trail towards Ghorepani. Awake one crisp morning and hike on a short pilgrimage to Poon Hill. Witness a spectacle etched in eternity -the sunrise, painting the Annapurna peaks in a fiery palette of orange and gold. As the sun ascends, so too will your spirit.

    Next comes the trail to Dovan, with a slow climb due to higher altitudes. You’ll descend 2500 stone steps, cross a bridge, and hike up to Sinuwa. Then, strolling through a forest, you’ll reach Kuldighar and finally reach Dovan.

    From Dovan, travel on a mystical journey. Bamboo forests adorned with colorful prayer flags whisper secrets in the gentle wind. Pass by the intriguing Hinku Cave, a hidden gem in the mountainside, before reaching Deurali.

    Your big trek to Annapurna Base Camp starts with a hike up a riverbed through the Annapurna Sanctuary to Machhapuchhre Base Camp (MBC). After a short travel break, you push toward ABC and marvel at the close-up view of the snow-clad mountains.

    The descent beckons. As you make your way back, each step carries a bittersweet symphony of memories. You’ll descend to Bamboo Village and Jhinu Danda, heading back to Pokhara to enjoy the vibrant city.

    The journey ends, but the memories remain. You’ll fly back to Kathmandu for one more day of exploration. The trip will end the next day, with our NHT member taking you to the airport for your flight home.
