We visit Boudhanath Stupa, one of the biggest Buddhist  shrines in the world, where we observe Buddhist monks praying  in the monasteries surrounding the stupa. After Boudhanath Stupa we visit Pashupatinath, the most famous Hindu temple in the country, located on the banks of the holy Bagmati River. Here we see Hindu holy men (sadhus) meditating, pilgrims bathing and occasionally funeral pyres burning on the ghats. We will also visit Kathmandu Durbar Square, which is a collection of pagoda and shikhara – style temples grouped around a ancient royal palace of brick and wood. The attraction of the Kathmandu Durbar Square is Kumari, Maju Dega, Jagannath Temple , The Statue of King Pratap Malla.
The rest of our time in Kathmandu is free for further exploration and some shopping in Thamel area near by your hotel. Overnight at a hotel.

Day 3: Drive to Pokhara (900 m) by private vehicle- 7 hrs

After breakfast we drive to Charaudi (the rafting starting point) by private vehicle. The rafting in the Trishuli River is one of the most thrilling adventure activities. During this period, you will feel what the real ecstasy of life being in Nepal is. The natural scenery seen from the Trisuli will be another spectacle to cherish. Upon reaching Mugling, the ending point of rafting, you will be trasferred to Pokhara on a 3-hour drive. A beautiful valley set on the banks of the Phewa Lake, Pokhara is also known for its panoramic views of Annapurna, Machapuchare (shape of fish tail) in the north, Dhaulagiri in the west, Lamjung Himal and Manaslu in the east. It is smaller and much less hectic than Kathmandu, hence providing the perfect starting point for our trek. Overnight at a hotel.


Day 4: Drive to Nayapul (1,010m) – 1 hr and Trek to Tikhedunga (1,570m) – 3 hrs.


We begin our trek at Nayapul after a 1-hour drive on a private vehicle from Pokhara. After a short 15-minute walk along the banks of the Modi Khola, we reach Birethanti (1,015m) 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 1,495m and after a short climb, we reach Tikhedhunga at 1,570m. Today’s walk is relatively short and easy, a prelude to the trekking experience in the Annapurna region. Overnight at a guesthouse.


Day 5: Trek to Ghorepani (2,840m) – 5 hrs


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

Day 6: Hike up to Poon Hill (3,210m); and trek to Tadapani (2,610m)


Today, very early in the morning, we start an hour hiking to Poon Hill at an elevation of 3,210m, 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, then returning to Ghorepani we take a hot breakfast at a hotel. Then we make a climb along ridges, and through pine and rhododendron forests to Deurali (2,960m). After that we descend to the Banthanti, then turning off to Tadapani. Overnight at a guesthouse.


Day 7: Trek to Chommrong (2,140m) – 5 hrs


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, with an easy walk to Chommrong at an elevation of 2,140 m. Overnight at a guesthouse.


Day 8: Trek to Dovan. – 6 hrs. Overnight at a guesthouse.

Today the trail drops down to the Chhomrong Khola and again we continue climbing to Khuldighar at 2,380m 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, then rhododendron forests to the Himalayan Hotel. Overnight at a guesthouse.


Day 9: Trek to Deurali (3230m) – 4 hrs. Overnight at a guesthouse.

Today is a relatively short day trekking to account for the altitude. As we ascend through the jungle and bamboo forests we’ll leave this behind and enter into a more rugged, alpine setting. The open valleys give you a glimpse of the snowfall which is present on the northern slopes of the mountains. As we gain altitude the views of the Annapurna Massif become ever more impressive.

Day 10: Trek to Annapurna Base Camp (4,130m) – 7 hrs


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


Day 11: Trek back to Bamboo (2345m) – 6 hrs


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


Day 12: Trek to Jhinu hot spring (1,780m) – 5 hrs


We follow the same trail until Chommrong. 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 hot spring, where you can bathe in natural hot springs. Overnight at a guesthouse.


Day 13: Trek to Nayapul (1,010 m) – 4.5 hrs. Drive to Pokhara – 1 hr.

From Jhinu hot springs 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.
