Day 1 : Pokhara - Ghandruk: (1982m)

You will leave to Pokhara early in the morning by a private vehicle along with a Great Nepal Representative and travel to either Naya pul or to Phedi. The trail climbs steeply uphill to your right towards Dampus. Walking along this ridge affords fantastic views of Annapurnas and Manaslu. If you go to Birethati, you can turn right after crossing the river (Modi khola) and aim to reach Ghandruk. This is about a 4-5 hours steep uphill trail with good views of Machhapuchre (Fishtail) and Annapurna South.


Day 2 : Ghandruk: (Explore the Ghandruk Village)

Ghandruk is the second largest Gurung village in Annapurna. Further to the south of Ghandruk there is another beautiful traditional Gurung village, GairiGoun, with its orderly rows of neat slate- roofed houses. GairiGoun is situated on the canyon wall amid a complicated network of terraces where wheat and barley are grown. You will get an opportunity to learn the lifestyle of locals in this village.


Day 3 : Ghandruk - Pothana:

In the morning you can take the trail down to ModiKhola and the trail again climbs to Landruk village. You can walk through paddy fields followed by an uphill climb to Pothana via Deuralli Village.


Day 4 : Pothana - Pokhara:

Today, you will mostly walk along the ridge of a forested hill with a back drop of mountain views. Then descend to Phedi through the village of Dhampus and meet your transport and drive to Pokhara.

Note: From Pokhara, you can extend a 2 Nights/3 Days trip to Chitwan National Park for jungle safari rides or return to Kathmandu by surface or flight.
