Adventure Destination Annapurna Panorama 2022
The trek begins with a guided sightseeing program in Kathmandu. After we take a flight to reach the serene lakeside city of Pokhara, the real walking begins from Nayapul. While trekking along to Ulleri and Ghorepani, we marvel at colorful orchids and clear views of the splendid high mountains including the two eight-thousanders – Mt. Annapurna (8091 m) and Mt. Dhaulagiri (8167m). Upon reaching the final destination, Poon Hill (3210m) is a reward in itself, perhaps one of the most beautiful viewpoints on earth. The added presence of rice terraces completes the picture making it a photographer’s paradise. Then, we trek to the beautiful Gurung village of Ghandruk and enjoy the ethnic hospitality along with the cultural magnificence of the Gurung Museum. Trekking through the Rhododendron forest that bloom with red flowers during the springtime, descending down to Birethanti, passing by waterfalls and a few small villages and settlements heightens our thrilling experiences. We further walk to Naya Pul and then drive to Pokhara which announces the end of this marvelous trek.
The 9-day Trek itinerary is designed for the trekkers who want a less demanding but short and beautiful trek, especially with their family and kids in the rural mountainside with up-close Himalayan views. For Trekkers who want a longer trek in the Annapurna region to (Machhapuchhre) Mt Fish Tail and Annapurna Base camp, Annapurna Sanctuary trek – 14 Days is the best option. If we are looking for a more demanding trek with the whole Annapurna circuit to cover in about two week’s time, Everest Trek Nepal’s Annapurna Circle Trek – 17 Days would be fine for us.
