    Day to day Itinerary

    Day 01: Arrival in Kathmandu and Transfer to hotel.

    Welcome to Nepal. You will be greeted by the representative of Adventure Bound Nepal and transferred to the hotel. In the evening, we give you a short briefing about the trip overview. Overnight at hotel.  

    Day 02: Drive to Pokhara by tourist bus (6 hours).

    From Kathmandu, we drive to Pokhara in the morning. Through the Prithvi Highway, the drive offers the sceneries near by the Trishuli and Marshyangdi River valley, green hillside and the terraced hillside. 

    Day 03: Drive to Nayapul and then trek to Tikhedhunga (1577m).

    After the breakfast at the hotel, we drive from Pokhara to Nayapul, which takes about an hour. We begin to walk and after about 40 min. We reach to the check post and officially enter into the Annapurna Conservation Area project. We have an easy day to walk through the wide trail. The waterfalls at Bhurungdi Khola are amazing. Passing Hile, we steadily walk to Tikhedhunga. Overnight at lodge.

    Day 04: Trek to Ghorepani (2750m).

    The second day of the trek, we begin to walk from Tikhedhunga, passing some lodges. Crossing the suspension bridge, we climb through the stone paved steps, that are nose touching. The Ulleri village we reach after one and half hour and walk continually, we pass Banthanti. Then the isolated part begins through the rhododendron forest.

    Day 05: Climb to Poon Hill (3200m) and trek to Tadapani.

    Early in the morning, we climb up to the Poon Hill, which is about 45 minutes of steep climb up. The stunning Himalayan views of Mt. Dhaulagiri (8167m), Annapurna (8091m), Fishtail, Himchuli and the peaks nearby can be explored that changes into the golden color with the sunrise over those peaks. This is a precious moment to take photographs.

    Day 06: Trek to Ghandruk (1940m).

    After the breakfast at  Tadapani, we begin to trek down through the rhododendron forest. First the trail is easy with flat landscape. After about half an hour, we begin to descend through the stone paved staircase. 

     Day 07: Trek to Birethanti (1025m) and then drive back to Pokhara.

    From Ghandruk, we commence through the steep stone staircase. We pass Khimche, Syaulibazaar and walk steadily through the flat trail. We can see farmers working in their fields.

    Day 08: Drive back to Kathmandu.

    From Pokhara, we drive back to Kathmandu, enjoying the Riverbank sceneries. If you have one more day, Pokhara sightseeing is a recommended thing to do along with the boating in Phewa Lake.

    Day 09: Departure.

    According to the time of your flight, our airport representative drops you to the International Airport for your final departure.
