Detail Itinerary

Day 01: Welcome to Kathmandu.
Upon your arrival we welcome you at the international airport and transfer you to our hotel. Enjoy the welcoming program and rest overnight.
Day 02: Drive from Kathmandu to Pokhara.
Early morning drive through the beautiful Nepalese countryside to reach the Pokhara. You can have the chance to experience the serenity of the less traveled places in Nepal, and to have a glimpse on the quaint villages along the way.  Pokhara is a scenic and leisure hub where you can sit back and enjoy yourself beside the beautiful Fewa lake.  Enjoy your own time after the long ride and rest overnight at hotel.
Day 03: Drive from Pokhara to Phedi (1810m) and trek to Deurali (2500m)
After breakfast, we begin our journey by driving around 30 minutes to Phedi, the place we commence our trek. The trail may be a bit steep and physically challenging at the beginning, but the part after Dhampush is relatively relaxing with great scenery. You will cross different crop fields, some quaint villages as well as a jungle. Conserved by Annapurna Conservation Area Project (ACAP), this area is a true private and scenic haven. We shall reach Pothana after the 4-hour walk. Stay overnight at teahouse of Pothana.
Day 04: Trek from Deurali to Forest Camp (2600m)
Today after breakfast we leave Pothana and continue our journey on a plain flat route. , we leave the main trek and set foot on the road less traveled by with the pleasant view of oak trees, maple leaves and rhododendron forests along the way. After 4 hours, we reach Forest Camp and stay overnight at the lodge there.
Day 05: Trek from Forest Camp to Low Camp (3150m)
Today we trek for 4 to 5 hours from Forest Camp to Low Camp. As we ascend, the flora around also changes – denser and greener vegetation, more rhododendron trees and the best is yet to come. Take a rest overnight at the Low Camp overnight and prepare for the upcoming ascend tomorrow. At Low Camp, you can enjoy a view of the mighty Machapuchare.
Day 06: Trek from Low Camp to High Camp (3700m)
After breakfast, we leave Low Camp and continue our ascend journey. As we walk along the Mardi Himal ridge, we have a clearer view on the Machapuchare and the South Annapurna range. As we travel to a higher attitude, the flora is gradually replaced by a more barren land. Yet during this 4-hour trek, you may have the chance to encounter the Himalayan monal, the national bird of Nepal. At High Camp, you may have a closer look for the Machapuchare and Hiunchuli. Rest over night at the teahouse in High Camp.
Day 07: Explore High Camp (Upper View Point - 4450m)
Today after an early breakfast, we hike up to the Upper View Point. This trail is steep and thus more physically challenging than the previous walks. The winding road starts at the bottom of a high hill, passing through a little pond and gradually becomes steeper and narrower. Reaching Upper View Camp, your hardship is rewarded by the stunning view of Himalayan panorama. You may have a clear view on Annapurna I, Annapurna south, Himchuli, Tent peak, Singachuli, Gangapurna, Machapuchare and needless to say, Mardi Himal. The whole trip takes about 5 to 6 hours, but the tranquillity and serenity of the place totally worth it. After that, back to base camp and stay overnight.
Day 08: Trek from High Camp to Siding (1750m)
Enjoy breakfast and have the last glance at the High Camp. Then, we walk back down to Low Camp, taking a different route from the one we traveled. Instead of going back to Forest Camp, we trek for 6 hours to Siding Village – a quaint traditional Nepalese village. Staying overnight there, you can have a taste on the most authentic Nepalese style of living.
Day 09: Trek from Siding to Lumre and drive back Pokhara(920m)
After a good rest at Siding, we walk for another 3 hours to Kumre. The trail is flat and easy. Along the way, you will pass through the village of Ghalel. At Lumre, we take a short break and drive back to Pokhara by private vehicle. Explore around Pokhara and stay overnight at the hotel at Pokhara.
Day 10: Exploration day at Pokhara(920m)
Pokhara, one of the scenic havens and the most famous tourist destination in Nepal, offers a large variety of leisure activities for you to spend the day, including boating, pony riding and paragliding. You can also take a leisure walk along the Fewa lake with the Annapurna Massif at the background, or explore the cultural villages and different holy places of great significance around the city.
Day 11: Drive back to Kathmandu(1350m)
Early morning, enjoy a scenic drive back to Kathmandu. Seize the last minute to enjoy the vibes of Kathmandu and grab the last chance to capture memorable moments in Nepal.  Rest overnight at hotel.
