Nepal: Annapurna Foothills trek 2024
Annapurna Foothill trek is very famous trekking in Himalayas of Nepal. Views are incredible and colorful short foray into the Annapurna region, It is Short and Beautiful trek Annapurna Himalayan So we have many fixed departures ( Cost , Itinerary and Package details ) 2024/2025 goes to Annapurna Foothills Trek
Day 1: Pokhara To Pothana (or Bichok Deorali) If you’ve flown in to Pokhara this morning take a taxi to Khare (about an hour’s drive). From there an hour of ascending trek will take you to the summit of the ridge to the north, with great views of Annapurna South, Hiunchuli, and Machapuchare ahead of you. A pleasant contouring trail brings you shortly to the ‘Australian Camp’, with several lodges (good spot for a late lunch). From there it’s a very gentle half-hour to reach Pothana, where there are 4-5 lodges. The further ones offer great views. If you are feeling fit, and it’s still relatively early (or if you started the day from Pokhara) you can push on wards for a pleasant hour or so to reach Bichok Deorali (a couple of lodges, including ‘Nice View Lodge’ – and its name doesn’t lie)
Day 2: To Landrung: A most delightful walk, mainly contouring along the side of the Modi Khola valley. There are numerous tea houses along the way for re-hydration. Initially a steep descent through woodland brings you to the lodges at Bheri Kharka, and then the rest of the day is a very pleasant stroll through rural Nepal, with great views ahead, and lots of interest along the trail. There are numerous good lodges at Landrung – a pleasant end to a short, pleasant day
Day 3: To Ghandruk A short day, but a vicious descent (on a good trail) down to the valley of the Modi Khola (If you want a VERY short trek you can then follow the valley down to reach Birethani and then Nyapul for a taxi back to Pokhara) Otherwise, after an all-too-brief stroll along the riverside path a steady 700 metre climb will bring you to Ghandruk. You will almost certainly reach Ghandruk in time for lunch, but it is well worth spending the afternoon exploring the very pleasant village.
Day 4: To Banthanti Mainly gentle uphill walking through delightful rhododendron woods will get you to Tadapani in time for lunch. From there a relatively steep descent, and a not very long ascent, brings you to the Travelers Sanctuary lodge (look out for Langur monkeys on the cliff above the lodge). Half an hour of delightful level trail brings you to Banthanti. The three lodges there are fairly basic (particularly compared with the pseudo-western hotels of Ghandruk and Ghorepani), but are managed by delightful Nepali people
Day 5: To Ghorepani Gently uphill, again through delightful woodland – almost park-like at times, with a stream for company, brings you to Deorali (another one – it’s the Nepali for a pass or col). If you have time, and visibility is good, you could climb to the observation tower on the hill above, but alternatively push on for half an hour on the trail to Ghorepani to reach the ridge which will give you superb views of the Annapurnas and Dhaulagiri. Lots of photo-opportunities of snow-clad mountains framed by rhododendrons – there’s no need to rush, drink it all in ! From there it’s downhill to Ghorepani.
Day 6: (Poon hill) to Tikhedunga or Hille Climb Poon Hill for sunrise if that’s your sort of thing ! The view is no better than yesterday’s from the ridge above Deorali, and if you want to share the hill with a thousand others, then fair enough ! Return to Ghorepani for breakfast (along with the more leisurely trekkers who chose not to have risen at 5 a.m.) From here it’s downhill all the way, to Ullieri (for lunch), and then the 3300 stone steps down to Tirkedungha (better than ascending them !). Lodges at Tirkedungha, or 20 minutes further on at Hille
Day 7: To Nayapul and Pokhara You could get a jeep from just below Hille, but it’s a very pleasant walk along the quiet road to Birethanti, and then the final half hour to the main road at Nayapul.
