We head out early on curvy country road for around 1.5 hours until we reach Nayapul. The trek on foot starts from here and as soon as we cross the confluence of Modi River over a rustic bridge.

With breaks in between, we trek for 4 hours, until we arrive at Ghandruk. The difficult section is the 2500 manmade steps all the way to Ghandruk. Overnight in Ghandruk.

Day 05: Ghandruk to Chhomrong (2,170m/7,120ft): 5 - 6 hours

On a clear day we wake up with splendid views of Annapurna South, Hiunchuli and Machhapuchhre, from Ghandruk. We ascend for the first 2 and half hours to Kimrong Dada and then steeply descend 2 hours to Kimrong Khola and then finally accent on famous steps to Chomrong for 3 hours. Most of the walking is done in lush green subtropical forest. Overnight in Chhomrong.

Day 06: Chomrong to Himalaya (2,310m/7,578ft): 4 - 5 hours

Today is one of the difficult days in the Annapurna base camp trek and one of the longest, with multiple ascents. Starting the day early, it would take around 8 hours to reach Himalaya. As soon as we embark on the trails from Chomrong we walk steep downhill until an old suspension bridge. After the bridge we walk on steep hills, on man crafted beautiful slate trails for over 2 hours until we reach bamboo. In this section of the trail we often walk through dense forest of bamboo, oak, rhododendron and dotted fern. Further down the trail, after lunch, we walk for just over 3 hours to reach Himalaya. Bamboo to Dovan and dovan to Himalaya as well is uphill walk. Overnight in Himalaya.

Day 07: Himalaya to Machhapuchhre Base Camp (3,700m/12,139ft): 4 -5 hours

We start the day by hiking a pleasant ascend, making our way through streams and falls until a steep ascend to Hinku and further small but steep hike to Deurali. Immediately after Deurali, the damp trees of lush green forest change into more dry and grassy land. The trail is more relaxed from here onwards but undergoes one of the most adventurous sections being it prone to avalanche. The views of distant Machhapuchhre become more dominant and we get the first glimpse of majestic Annapurna. On this day we start to feel the effect of altitude. Overnight at Machhapuchhre base camp.

Day 08: MBC to ABC (4,130m/13,550ft): 3 – 4 hours

The trek to Annapurna base camp (ABC) from Machhapuchhre base Camp (MBC) takes over 2.5 hours. The walk is basically easier compared to days earlier and the incline is gradual. The views of Hiunchuli, Annapurna Dakshin, Annapurna I, Tent Peak, Annapurna II, Gangapurna, Barasinga, Machhapuchhre and few others is very impressive. Overnight at ABC

Day 09: ABC to Bamboo (2,310m/7,579ft): 5 – 6 hours

After taking breakfast at regular time, we trek the same route to Annapurna base camp on the previous day. We first head to MBC followed by Deurali, Himalaya, Dovan and finally Bamboo. We descend for almost 7 hours until we reach Bamboo. Alike every day, we take frequent breaks in between the initial point and final destination. After a long day on trails we rest at a teahouse in Bamboo.

Day 10: Bamboo to Jhinu dada (1,780m/5,840ft): 5 – 6 Hours

Down through the rivers, crossing streams and bridges and steep uphill for almost 1 hour, we enjoy majority of our trails through lush green forest. Most of this day's walk is on flat trails with gentle up’s and down’s except for one final steep climb for half an hour to Chomrong. We take steep trail downwards from Chomrong to Jhinu danda where waits natural hot springs. We have possibility of enjoying the natural hot springs and rejuvenating for the rest of our journey.

Day 11: Jhinu dada to Nayapul to pokhara 820m/2,690ft): 4 hours of walk, 1.5 hours of jeep ride

By the time we reach Pokhara it is around 5, we can enjoy walking around the Phewa Lake or rest, as per our preference.
