This moderate trek is a wonderful portion of the Annapurna Circuit that encompasses the stunning rhododendron and magnolia forests and includes the highlight of the Poon Hill sunrise, possibly the most memorable part of the whole Annapurna circuit. This trek is ideal for people with less time who still want to experience the full glory of trekking in the Himalayas.

Difficulty Level

Moderate

A few hours of walking may be involved in the day on mostly flat paved ground.

Detailed Itinerary

1Day 1
Drive: KTM-Pokhara
Travel from Kathmandu to Pokhara by tourist bus and spend the night at a hotel in Pokhara.
2Day 2
Phedi to Dhampus (1650m)
Drive from Pokhara the Phedi where you will begin your trek. It’s a steep climb up through terraced farm land and forest from Phedi to Dhampus, situated on the ridge of the hill, where you will get your first glimpse of the stunning Annapurna mountain range.
3Day 3
Trek to Landruk (1620m)

4Day 4
Trek to Ghandruk (1940m)
One of the hardest days trekking on the circuit even though it is only a half day. From Landruk it is a steep descent down to the Modi river where you will cross on a suspension bridge before the equally steep ascent up to the incredibly picturesque Gurung village of Ghandruk.
5Day 5
Trek to Tadapani (2630m)
A beautiful day’s walking uphill through the forest of rhododendrons and magnolias. If you are lucky, you might even spot some Langur monkeys. Although it is only uphill, it is nice and gradual and an enjoyable 4-5 hours until you reach the village of Tadapani where you can enjoy the incredibly close mountain views of Annapurna South.
6Day 6
Trek to Ghorepani (2860m)
First you will descend for an hour or so before heading back uphill to Deurali (a different Deurali!) and then down again to Ghorepani where you will enjoy magnificent views of the mountains and the Kali Gandaki gorge below.
7Day 7
Visit Poon Hill (3193m) and trek to Ulleri (1960m)
You will arise before dawn to trek to Poon Hill for a panoramic sunrise view of the Himalayas – possibly the most memorable and sublime moment of your trek.

8Day 8
Trek to Nayapul and drive to Pokhara - Overnight at Hotel
