Annapurna Base Camp Trek 10 days Deluxe Plan

Annapurna Base Camp (also known as Annapurna Sanctuary or ABC) a snowy valley is another one of Nepal’s scenic and adventurous trekking routes. It is a deep glacier, which gives the effect of an Amphitheatre surrounded by a ring of impressive high peaks including: Hiun Chuli, Annapurna South, Annapurna l, Ganggapurna, Annapurna III and Machhapuchhre. The trail to this awe-inspiring scene ascends the Annapurna foothills through forested hillsides, where we are given a taste of Nepal’s magical and majestic vistas with a spectacular sunrise over the Annapurnas and Dhaulagiri at Poon Hill. It continues through scattered Gurung settlements, cross terraced fields and abundant forests before climbing gradually into a world of ice and snow at Base Camp, the ‘Sanctuary of the Gods’’. Returning to Pokhara by a different route this trek offers truly fascinating scenery, with a combination of picturesque rice-fields, villages and a panorama of high peaks.


Day 01: Arrival, hotel transfer & welcome dinner O/N hotel (D)

Arrive Kathmandu airport (1345m.), receive and welcome with flower garlands and transfer to hotel. Their after generally we discuss about the things need to do and late afternoon we settle the remaining preparation of the trekking and shopping. Then if there is little time left we may go for a short walk around, if not we go for dinner.

Day 02: After breakfast fly to Pokhara 25 minute and drive to Saulibazar via Nayapul by private Car / Van, then trek to Ghandruk (1940m.) 4 hours. O/N lodge (B)

Lunch can be taken in Lakeside Pokhara or Nayapul depends on the flight and the weather condition. Today we cross some of small streams and a river through many small villages. There is check point of Annapurna Conservation Area Project which check all the necessary permits for trekking.   

Day 03: Ghandruk to Sinuwa (2360m.) 5.30 hours O/N lodge

At this juncture, we climb up for around an hour up to Kimrungdanda. On the way, we can enjoy great views of Annapurna South, Hiunchuli, Fishtail Mountain (Machhapuchhre) and Ganggapurna. Next, it’s a steep descent takes us to the Kimrong Khola. After another steep ascent from Kimrong Khola to Chere Danda, we descend for a while then it’s a gentle walk to Chhomrong.  Chhomrong is a beautiful village located on the lap of the giant Annapurna massive. The trail out of Chhomrong descends via 2500 stone steps and crosses the Chhomrong  Khola on a swaying suspension bridge. It is an uphill climb to Sinuwa.

Day 04: Sinuwa to Deurali (3230m.)  4.00 hours  O/N lodge

We pass through the Kuldhigar and then to bamboo forest which is damp and cold then ascend steadily with fewer steep sections. It is only after reaching Himalaya Hotel that the forest opens up and we are out in the sun again with astounding views of the glacial river below. It is a steep climb up through a much drier forest before reaching Hinku Cave. From here we can see the trail drop closer to the river before climbing again to Deurali, the most scenic stretch of the day. The vegetation is sparser, allowing magical views of the valley, the river below, and the sheer rock face cliffs above with bands of wispy waterfalls.

Day 05: Deurali to Annapurna Base Camp (4,130m.) via Machhapuchhre Base Camp (3700m. 6.00 hours O/N lodge

Climb gently through a river bed then over a steep trail over to the mountain side. The hike from Bagar to Machhapuchhre Base Camp is somewhat strenuous. From Machhapuchhre base camp we get excellent views of the majestic Machhapuchhre along with Mt. Hiunchuli, Annapurna South, Annapurna I, Annapurna III, Gandharvachuli and Gangapurna which is certainly a rewarding experience. The vegetation disappears on our way to ABC and the path widens as we enter the Annapurna sanctuary. From here, we get sensational views of the near-vertical south face of Annapurna towering above us. The sanctuary boasts of a dynamic view without anything impeding the 360-degree panorama. From the base camp we again get to savor mesmerizing views of the Machhapuchhre, Annapurna south, Annapurna I, Hiunchuli and other peaks.

Day 06: Annapurna Base Camp to Bamboo 7.00 hours O/N lodge

From the Annapurna base camp we retrace our steps to Bamboo. Today’s trek is downhill so it shouldn’t be very difficult. Besides, we will always have the company of the extraordinary landscape to cheer us up.

Day 07: Bamboo to Jhinu Danda (1760m.) 5.30 hours O/N lodge

From Bamboo, it is an uphill trek to Kuldighar followed by a downhill walk to Chhomrong Khola. Then we climb the stone steps to Chhomrong. The trail then descends to Jhinu Danda, where we will be resting for the night. Today we will have an opportunity to enjoy hot springs just 15-20 minute downhill walk from Jhinu Danda to soothe our aching body.
