There is an option for the trek from Tikhedhunga as well. The most spectacular places on the trail are Ghorepani, MBC (3,700 m)., Jhinu Dada and Annapurna Base Camp. Ghorepani is the splendid Gurung/Magar village. It is a gateway to Poon Hill (3,210 m). The panoramic view of the mountains and the green lush forests including rhododendron is its feature. The Sunrise view from Poon Hill (3,210 m) is indeed the most momentous.  Moreover, the sun rays kissing the tip of snow-capped mountains are definitely a sight to behold.

    Furthermore, trekkers walk through green lush forest trails, rivers and gorges towards ABC. As the altitude increases; temperate forests change to Alpine and finally to Tundra. The chill mountain breeze kisses your skin. Moreover, it is the most fantastic walking journey ever. From the base camp of the world’s 10th tallest mountain Mt. Annapurna (8,091 m), the view of the mountains is effervescent.

    This is the only place where one can observe the mountains very close on a 360-degree view. It is a mystical trekking zone. However, trekkers will realize that heaven on earth is not a myth. Namely, the Annapurna Base Camp offers quintessential Himalayan wilderness.

    Day 03: Bus to Pokhara (8, 20m/2,690ft)

    On this day we have our breakfast by 6:00 a.m. in the morning and head towards the tourist Bus Park at Thamel and board a tourist bus to Pokhara. The bus ride will take around 7 hours through curvy roads of hilly terrain with a couple of breaks in between for snacks and lunch. The drive to Pokhara on one of the major highways is exhilarating with beautiful views of never leaving tributaries, lush green hills and roadside settlements.

    Day 04: Drive to Nayapul and trek to Ghandruk (1,940m/6,360 ft): 5 - 6 hours

    We head out early on a 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. Once on foot and half an hour later we get our permits checked in the village of Birethanti and move further. The first day of trek is easy compared with the days to come and very short. 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 for 2 hours to Kimrong Khola and then finally accent on the famous steps to Chomrong for 3 hours. Most of the walking is done in lush green subtropical forests. 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 the Himalayas. 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 forests of bamboo, oak, rhododendron and dotted fern. Further down the trail, after lunch, we walk for just over 3 hours to reach the Himalayas. Bamboo to Dovan and Dovan to Himalaya as well is an uphill walk. Overnight in the Himalayas.

    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 a 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 is prone to avalanches. 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 a few others is very impressive. Overnight at ABC

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

    After taking breakfast at the 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 the 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 the majority of our trails through lush green forest. Most of this day's walk is on flat trails with gentle ups and down’s except for one final steep climb for half an hour to Chomrong. We take a steep trail downwards from Chomrong to Jhinu Danda where waits natural hot springs. We have the 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 walking, 1.5 hours of jeep ride

    From Jhinu Danda the trails are easier, and ascending and descending are very effortless. We make our way through rustic bridges, patches of villages and jeep tracks. We finally checkout from ACAP at Birethanti and walk around 15 minutes to Nayapul At Nayapul we board our vehicle and drive an hour back to Pokhara. By the time we reach Pokhara, it is around 5, we can enjoy walking around the Phewa Lake or rest, as per our preference.

    Day 12: Pokhara to Kathmandu

    The bus ride takes around 7 hours to Kathmandu. The bus traverses through beautiful lush green hills and views of mountains (only in season). Once we reach Kathmandu we transfer you to your accommodation and hence officially come to the end of the Annapurna base camp trek.
