Get to Pokhara
On your own, go to Pokhara from Kathmandu by bus or by air.
Drive 40 km (two hours) from Pokhara to Nayapul (3,812 ft). Trek Nayapul to Ghandruk (11.6 miles; 5 hours) at 6,571 feet in elevation
On this first day of the hike to Annapurna Base Camp, we will travel to the lovely Gurung village of Ghandruk. Starting from Pokhara, we drive two hours to Nayapul. After arriving in Nayapul, the trail descends to Birethanti and then crosses a dilapidated suspension bridge over the Bhurungdi River. Trekkers must complete the required check-in procedures at the ACAP office in the lovely settlement of Birethanti. The last ascent towards Ghandruk then starts. The track gradually ascends on a gravel road up until Syauli Bazar at first. You will start climbing a flight of stone steps from Syauli Bazar until Kimche after leaving the dirt road and river bank. One of the coziest villages along the trek, Ghandruk, is another two hours away. A Gurung cultural museum is also located in Ghandruk. The Hiunchuli and Macchapucchre peaks will be visible from your teahouse in the evening if the sky is clear.
11 km/5 hours from Ghandruk to Lower Sinuwa (7,414 ft)
The planned destination for today is Sinuwa. After passing through the entire town of Ghandruk, the trail gradually ascends 200 m to the little settlement of Kimrong Danda, which is perched atop a ridge. The settlement provides sweeping views of the mountains around. You descend 400 m abruptly from Kimrong Danda through oak and rhododendron forests before crossing the Kimrong Khola at the bottom of the valley. first cross the river before passing through the lower Kimrong village and ascending once more to Chhomrong. stop at an ACAP Check post on the way up the 500 m to one of the valley’s largest communities (featuring genuine Italian coffee). Chhomrong extends from the summit of the mountain to the bottom of the valley; to reach the stream, you must descend 400 m through the entire village.
12 km (6 hours) from Lower Sinuwa to Deurali (10,400 feet)
Today, you’ll begin in Lower Sinuwa and climb 250 meters to the top settlement. Stunning views of the higher valley may be found from Upper Sinuwa. For the first five kilometers, the trail is level and runs through extensive bamboo and rhododendron trees. One of the nicest aspects of the path is this segment. The 900-meter ascent from Bamboo to Deurali should take 4 hours. A small community called Deurali is located right at the foot of Macchapuchhre, one of the world’s most exquisitely formed mountains.
4 miles and three hours from Deurali to Machhapuchhre Base Camp (12,070 feet).
One of the trek’s shorter days is today. On the fourth day of the expedition, people used to often hike up to Annapurna Base Camp, but that is no longer feasible. It is not feasible to stay at ABC because the majority of the teahouses and lodges there were damaged over the winter and spring of 2019. Today, we’ll hike up to Macchapuchre Base Camp. You will ascend 500 meters while traveling across slopes with little vegetation and twice crossing the Modi Khola. You will encounter accumulated winter snow as you ascend farther into the valley.
17 km/7 hours from Macchapuchhre Base Camp to Annapurna Base Camp (13,451 ft) to Bamboo (7,582 ft).
Today, get up two hours before sunrise and walk the final few miles to ABC. Over the right lateral moraine of the Annapurna glacier, you will gradually climb. The hike up the trail is simple and enjoyable. When you arrive at ABC and the sun begins to rise, you will notice enormous peaks rising to 7,000 and 8,000 meters surrounding you. At the base of Hiunchuli and Annapurna South, ABC is located (7,219 m). You can see the main Annapurna peak (8.091 m) to your right. Khangsar Kang, Tare Kang, Gangapurna, and Annapurna III are to the east of Annapurna. The glacier and the top of Annapurna are separated by a massive wall of ice and rock that is quite steep. One of the nicest sunrises you have ever witnessed will occur.
9 miles (4 hours) from Bamboo to Jhinu (5,659 ft).
Today’s travel is intended for Jhinu Danda. We first ascend to Kuldhigar from Bamboo, where the ACAP office and visitor center are situated. After passing Sinuwa, we descend to the bridge across the Chhomrong River. We cross the bridge and enter Chhomrong, a stunning Gurung settlement. We will descend rapidly from Chhomrong to Jhinu Danda. From Jhinu Danda, the Jhinu hot springs are about 15–20 minutes downhill.
The drive to Pokhara is 40 kilometers and takes two hours from Jhinu to Nayapul.
The planned destination for the day is Pokhara. After crossing the bridge over the Modi River, the trail first travels through an erratic bamboo forest before passing through several tiny towns that are ornamented with terrace farms that grow seasonal crops till Siwai. Here, where the path and the road meet, you can hire a jeep to skip the final 8 km of hiking to Nayapul. If you decide to hike on, it will take you another two hours to get to Birethanti, where you can finish checking out at the ACAP Checkpost. It takes 10 minutes to ascend from Birethanti to Nayapul, where you will board your cars for the trip to Pokhara.
On the ninth day of the trek, you can depart from Pokhara.
