Overview

Annapurna Base Camp Trek 13 Days is a fantastic journey one must not miss. This offers you the whole view of mountain ranges. Especially, the magnificent, colossal, and snow-capped that are against the blue sky. You can also observe Annapurna South, Tent Peak, Hiunchuli, Gangapurna, and Annapurna South. Their beauty is indescribable that they draw Everyone’s attention. You can take their photos with your camera as much as you like and as far as you can reach to the corners of the base camp.

The trek begins from Nayapul starting point. From here, you cover a large distance of stone steps up to Ulleri. Its often said there are 3300 steps in Ulleri. It leads to the emergence of the region which is made of the uphill trail, steel suspension bridges, and frequent bamboo forest. This includes the largest rhododendron forest in Nepal. In addition to these, after a decent hike from Ghorepani, you will reach Poonhill. Poonhill affords the brilliant view of both Dhaulagiri Ranges and Annapurna Ranges. You will also see Fishtail Mountain as well as, the mountain ranges bathing in sunlight.
Off all the villages the journey takes you to, Sinuwa village is calm, peaceful, and scenic. Its background mountains include Fishtail and Gangapurna. We know trekking is tiring, and we also know that trekking offers breathtaking views; therefore, we all want you to rest overnight at Jhinu Danda, By walking 20 mins downhill from Jhinu Danda, you will reach Jhinu Hot Spring. This will boost your tired body for the last trekking day of Annapurna Base Camp. We Bharal Adventure assure you the best hospitality and quality services.

Trip Itinerary

Our airport representative will be receiving you at Tribhuvan International Airport, Kathmandu and s/he will be displaying a Bharal Adventure signboard outside the airport terminal. You will be then transferred to your respective hotel in our private tourist vehicle.

Note: If you happen to arrive after 4 pm you would be briefed about the trip by our guide, this will be the pre-trip meeting for you, so please make sure that you ask all the questions. But if you arrive earlier than 4 pm, your pre-trip meeting would be on that very day at our office. During the meeting, we will introduce your trek leader/guide. For the meeting, please make sure you bring the passport, three copies of passport-size photos and a readable copy of your travel insurance policy. During this meeting, please clear the due balance, if any, and sign the legally binding trip form as well as the non-liability disclaimer.

Day 02: Kathmandu – Pokhara [910m/2,985 ft]: 6 hrs

Soon after breakfast, the group will set off on a long scenic drive to Pokhara, the second-largest city in Nepal. After checking in to the hotel and taking rest, leisure boating on the picturesque Fewa Lake will be arranged for making the evening pleasant.

This day We will have a scenic drive to Nayapul in Private Car/Jeep which takes around 1 hr 30 min. Then, we will begin our Trek from Nayapul. After a short 20-minute walk along the banks of the Modi Khola, we reach Birethanti (1,015 m), a large village with many shops and teahouses. From there, the trail continues through the village and follows the north bank of the Bhurungdi Khola. The trail climbs steadily up the side of the valley to Hille at 1,450 m. 

We move on towards the steep climb to Ulleri, a large Magar village at an altitude of 2,070 m. The trail ascends more gently from this point, through fine forests of oak and rhododendrons, towards Banthanti at 2,250 m. Then we trek towards Nangethanti at 2,460 m. After an hour's walk, we arrive at Ghorepani (2,840 m).

Today, very early in the morning, we start an hour hiking to Poon Hill at an elevation of 3,210 m, a brilliant mountain range spectacle; this vantage point provides an unobstructed view of the sunrise over the high Himalayas. There we spend about 1 hour and returning to Ghorepani, we take a hot breakfast. Then we make a climb along ridges, and through pine and rhododendron forests, towards Deurali (2,960 m). After that, we descend to the Banthanti, then turn off to Tadapani.

The day starts with a steep downhill through rhododendron forests. Leaving Tadapani, we descend through the forests and then the trail eases as we reach Gurjung which is the village of Gurung people. From here it is a walk to Sinuwa at an elevation of 2,325 m.

Today the trail drops down to the Chomrong Khola and again we continue climbing to Khuldighar at 2,380 m where there used to be an ACAP (Annapurna Conservation Area) check post. There is a clearing in the forest a little further on, from which, the route travels very steeply down a rock bank, then levels out, running through thickets of bamboo at the bottom of the gorge, keeping always on the west side of the river. We walk through bamboo and rhododendron forests to Deurali(3200 m)

Today the trail climbs on past the Hinko Cave, Deurali and then Machapuchare Base Camp, which isn’t really a base camp since climbing Mt Machapuchare is not permitted. Since it is totally surrounded by mountains, this area is known as the Annapurna Sanctuary. Two hours trek from Machapuchare Base Camp takes us to the Annapurna Base Camp (ABC) at an elevation of 4,130 m. There, we will view unobstructed views of mountain scenery, which is very spectacular.

We follow the same trail down today. The trail drops by 1,700 m to the bank of Modi Khola to Bamboo at 2,345 m where there are a few teahouse/lodges available to stay at.

We follow the same trail until Chomrong. Once we have passed Khuldighar, there is an experimental sheep farm. The trail continues through rhododendron and bamboo fields. From Chomrong, the trail descends very steeply to the Jhinu, where we can bath in natural hot springs.

From Jhinu we walk at the right side of Modi Khola for 4.5 hrs to Birethanti which can be considered one of the best and the most relaxing walks of the entire trek. We reach Nayapul. Then an hour's drive will take us back to Pokhara.

After we check into the hotel, we will then walk to the Fewa Lake for our boating trip to Barahi Temple.

We will be driving back to Kathmandu in the morning.

If you are interested in extending the trip, there are many options such as Chitwan jungle safari, river rafting adventure, Kathmandu shopping tour, mountain biking, and other activities.

The trip concludes today. Our airport representative will drop you at the international airport in Kathmandu for your flight departure from Nepal.
