Soon after you hit the tarmac in Pokhara, we take a one-hour cruise to Naya Pool along the graceful Modi Khola Valley. On reaching our destination, we begin our highly thrilling Annapurna trek. The route winds through lush green forest & finally culminates at Birethanti after walking for one hour.

As we quit Birethani, we hike along terraced fields below the wonderful panorama of awe-inspiring glaciated Himalayan mountain ranges. As the trail moves across a group of flatlands, forest, cultivated lands and a suspension bridge over Khumnu Khola, we arrive at the scenic & beautiful village of Ghandruk after hiking for 3 to 4 hours. A supreme vantage point in this pristine & serene village offers breathtaking views of Annapurna South, Gangapurna, Annapurna III, Machhapuchhare and Hiunchuli. Several hotels and teahouses at the village give us a warm welcome with sincere Nepalese hospitality while catering to the requirements of all trekkers’ who hit the trail through this village. Camping in its terraced fields give you the open wild feelings of adventure!

Tadapani offers the most magnificent mountain views of the overwhelming peaks of Annapurna South. [Walk approx 3 hours] we then crash out for the night.
