Trip Itinerary

Upon your arrival at Tribhuvan International Airport (TIA), our airport representative will greet you and transfer you to your hotel. Depending on your arrival time, the pre-trip meeting will take place either on the first day or within the first hour of the second day. In the evening, you will be treated to a traditional Nepali welcome dinner. Your accommodation for the night will be at a hotel, and the welcome dinner is included.

After your morning breakfast, you will be received by your guide for the sightseeing at Kathmandu valley.The sites you will be taken for are:

 

SwoyambhuNath Stupa: Located on the top of the hill, Swoyambhunath Stupa is a Buddhist holy site also known as the monkey temple. The dome shaped Stupa with eyes on all four sides is absolutely beautiful. The view of the whole Kathmandu valley from the top of the stupa is breath taking.

 

Boudhanath Stupa: Situated to the north eastern outskirts of Kathmandu, this is another holy place for the Buddhists. The dome, mandala, pinnacle, the umbrella and the whole Stupa itself is a true work of art and beauty. Recently renovated Stupa post-earthquake gives the serenity in the crowded city.

 

Bhaktapur Durbar Square: Bhaktapur was the capital of Nepal during the great Malla Kingdom. Bhaktapur has the best-preserved palace courtyards and old city center in Nepal and is listed as a world heritage site of UNESCO for its rich culture, temples, and wood, metal, and stone artworks. You will be taken to the attraction sites such as Bhaktapur Durbar Square, Nyatapola Temple, BhairabNath Temple, Dattatreya Temple.

After breakfast, depending on your travel preference, you can choose to either fly or drive to the renowned city of lakes, Pokhara. You can confirm your flight or drive during the booking process. The flight takes approximately 25-30 minutes, while the drive takes around 7 hours to reach this popular destination. Upon arrival in the city, our representative will meet you and transfer you to the hotel. The remaining time can be spent sightseeing around the Fewa Lake, going boating, and more. Overnight stay at the hotel with breakfast included.

After enjoying a morning breakfast in Tikhedhunga, we begin our steep ascent up the staircases of Ulleri. As we progress, the breathtaking Himalayan ranges appear closer. Walking through the rhododendron forests and oak trees is truly awe-inspiring. From Ulleri, we get a fantastic view of Fishtail, Hiunchuli, and Annapurna South. After a brief rest and lunch in Ulleri, we continue on the trail, surrounded by forests and streams, with the magnificent Himalayas always in sight. After another 5 hours of walking, we arrive at Ghorepani (2675 m) and stay overnight at a Guesthouse, with breakfast, lunch, and dinner included.

Wake up early in the morning and hike up Poon Hill. The hike takes around an hour to reach the top of the hill to view the extravagant sunrise through the mountains and the changing color of the horizon. Upon sunrise, you can clearly see the mountain ranges of Mt. Dhaulagiri (8167m), Tukuche Peak (6920m), Nilgiri (6940m), VarahaShikar (7847m), Mt. Annapurna I (8091m), Annapurna South (7219m), Annapurna I (7937m), Machhapuchhare (6993m), Annapurna IV (7525m), LamjungHimal (6931m) etc. the morning view is exhilarating. We return back to the guesthouse, have our breakfast, and head out for Tadapani.

After the ascents and descents for around 4 hours, we finally reach Tadapani. Overnight at a Guesthouse. B/L/D Included

 

 

 

After breakfast in Tadapani, we return to the trail, which mostly consists of steep descents through oak and maple trees, beautiful forests, and the Annapurna ranges. After walking for around 3-4 hours, we reach the picturesque Gurung village of Ghandruk. We have our lunch in Ghandruk, enjoy the stunning mountain views, then descend the staircases to return to Nayapul, where our trek began. The walk from Ghandruk will take approximately 2-3 hours. From Nayapul, we drive back to Pokhara and check in at the hotel. Breakfast, lunch, and dinner are included.

You need to wake up early in the morning and get ready to return to Kathmandu. You have the option to either take a flight, which will take 30 minutes, or drive, which will take 7 hours.
