icon Day 1: Join trip Kathmandu
Location:

  Kathmandu


Accommodation:

  Hotel


Meals Included:

  No Meals


The trip starts today in Kathmandu, the busy, colourful and chaotic capital city of Nepal.

Your Leader plans to meet everyone in the hotel reception for a welcome meeting at 5 pm. For those that wish, there is the chance to go out together as a group for dinner afterwards. There are no other activities planned for today. Should you miss the welcome meeting, your leader will leave any essential information and details of the best time to catch up with them, at the hotel reception.

If you would like to receive a complimentary airport transfer today, you'll need to arrive into Kathmandu Tribhuvan International Airport (KTM). You should allow at least 45 minutes to reach our hotel in central Kathmandu as traffic congestion in city can be bad.

Depending on the arrival time of your flight, should you wish to explore, our hotel is located a short walk from the lively Thamel area. Home to a multitude of outdoor gear, souvenir shops, great bookshops and a huge variety of restaurants, it's a fun place to wander.

icon Day 2: Trek briefing; walking tour of old Kathmandu
Location:

  Pokhara


Accommodation:

  Hotel


After breakfast there will be a trek briefing by your tour leader to let you know the programme for the next few days, to make sure everyone is properly equipped for the trek and to give you an idea of what to expect on a day to day basis. We have then arranged a walking tour, visiting the bazaar and the Durbar Square area, the centre of old Kathmandu. Much of the day to day life of Kathmandu takes place in the bazaar: a fascinating mixture of people selling fruit, vegetables and spices, devotees visiting their favourite gods at temples and small shrines dotted along the sides of alleyways, rickshaw wallahs honking their horns and the ever present sacred cow wandering amongst it all.

icon Day 3: Drive to Pokhara; prepare for trek
Location:

  Annapurna


Accommodation:

  Hotel


Leaving the capital today we drive to Pokhara. The drive will take us much of the day but there is plenty to see as the landscape changes and the Annapurna range comes in to view.

icon Day 4: Drive to Badaldanda; trek on stone steps to Ghandruk
Location:

  Ghandruk


Accommodation:

  Teahouse


Today we leave Pokhara and drive via Nayapul to Badaldanda village where we begin our trek. Today's walk follows a stone pathway, and for the most time we are climbing roughly hewn steps - it can be tough on the knees so bring walking poles. Our base for tonight is the small settlement of Ghandruk.

Today's two kilometre walk is expected to take around 45 minutes with a total ascent of 100 metres and a descent of 20 metres.

icon Day 5: Hike via Taulung to Chhomrong
Location:

  Chhomrong


Accommodation:

  Teahouse


Today we start with an ascent before dropping down to cross the Kimrong Khola by bridge, before making a short ascent to Taulung. We then begin the long steep ascent to join the main trail to Chhomrong. The high point above the main valley is a favourite place for soaring vultures, griffons and lammergeiers, providing us with some awesome vistas as we begin the descent to Chommrong (2060m), the last major settlement before the Sanctuary and an attractive place for us to end the day amidst its alpine lodges and scenic views.

Today's 12 kilometre walk is expected to take around six hours with a total ascent of 810 metres and a descent of 670 metres.

icon Day 6: Trek through rhododendron forest to Dovan
Location:

  Dobhan


Accommodation:

  Teahouse


Descending to cross the Chhomrong Khola River by suspension bridge, we enjoy some excellent views of Machhapuchhre today (now exhibiting its distinctive 'fishtail' profile) and Annapurna South. We continue to climb steeply, negotiating a trail that leads us through oak and rhododendron forests until we reach a welcome teahouse on top of the ridge at Sinuwa (2350m). The ascent to Kuldigarth (2470m) is then more gradual, continuing through more lush forest to our lunch stop at the Bamboo Hotel (2340m). This afternoon we continue our ascent towards Dovan, beyond which lies the unofficial gateway into the Sanctuary, walking through wet bamboo forest to reach our accommodation later this afternoon.

Today's 10 kilometre walk is expected to take around seven hours with a total ascent of 1060 metres and a descent of 620 metres.

icon Day 7: Trek past waterfalls and bamboo forest to Deurali
Location:

  Deurali


Accommodation:

  Teahouse


This morning the track continues up past the so-called 'weeping wall' and the shrine of the 'God of the Jungle', to the Himalaya Hotel (2840m). Passing several spectacular waterfalls which cascade down the opposite side of the Modi Khola, we climb through bamboo forest to reach Hinku Cave at 3100m. We ascend further until we reach the small settlement of Deurali where we will spend the night.

Today's five kilometre walk is expected to take around three and a half hours with a total ascent of 760 metres and a descent of 80 metres.

icon Day 8: Trek to Machhapucchre Base Camp (3720m)
Location:

  Machhapuchhare Base Camp


Accommodation:

  Teahouse


Today we climb further to pass between Machhapuchhre and Huinchuli - the 'Gates' into the Sanctuary. Climbing over rocky moraine we arrive at Machhapuchhre Base Camp (3720m). Overshadowed by Annapurna South and the beautiful shape of Machhapuchhre (machha, fish' and puchhre, 'tail'), one of Nepal's holy mountains, this is a quite awe-inspiring setting in which to end our day's trekking, the mountain landscapes providing us with a sight to raise the spirits of even the most tired amongst us.

Today's five kilometre walk is expected to take around three and a half hours with a total ascent of 540 metres and a descent of 40 metres.

icon Day 9: Trek to Annapurna Base Camp (4130m); descend to Machhapucchre Base Camp
Location:

  Annapurna


Accommodation:

  Teahouse


We spend the day enjoying the views within the very heart of the sanctuary. Having made a 'crack of dawn' start to get the best of the day, we follow part of the route taken by British mountaineer Chris Bonnington on the 1970 Annapurna south face expedition. Following west along a moraine to the north of Hiunchuli, we reach several stone buildings at 4130m and then ascend to a spectacular viewpoint. Here we have amazing views of the peaks encircling us including close up views of the south face of Annapurna I which towers over the Sanctuary and also of Annapurna South glacier. We will have time to enjoy this special mountain panorama, to sit amongst the edelweiss and watch the ice carving its way from the glacier, before descending back to Machhapuchhre Base Camp.

Today's five kilometre walk is expected to take around three and a half hours with a total ascent of 430 metres and a descent of 430 metres.

icon Day 10: Descend to Bamboo
Location:

  Annapurna Base Camp (अन्नपूर्ण आधार शिविर)


Accommodation:

  Teahouse


We begin our descent today as we head for Bamboo (2340m), passing through the bamboo forest and crossing a number of rocky avalanche chutes. Approximately 6 hours walking.

Today's 12 kilometre walk is expected to take around six hours with a total ascent of 140 metres and a descent of 1550 metres.

icon Day 11: Trek to Jhinnu Danda via Chhomrong
Location:

  Chhomrong


Accommodation:

  Teahouse


Descending through rhododendron forest full of noisy birds - mostly black-capped Sibia, we then cross the Chhomrong Khola and climb up to Chhomrong village (2060m) where we take a rest break. We then climb for a short while before descending to Jhinnu Danda, our home for the night.

Today's 12 kilometre walk is expected to take around six hours with a total ascent of 690 metres and a descent of 1230 metres.
There is an optional walk to Hot spring which will approximately take 45 minutes.

icon Day 12: Walk to Simai; drive to Pokhara
Location:

  Pokhara


Accommodation:

  Hotel


Our final day of trekking sees us first descending to the Kimrong Khola which we cross and then tackle a short ascent. Descending further we follow the Modi River until we reach Simai from where it's a short journey by four-wheel drive to Nayapul where we meet our bus. It's an hour-and-a-half drive back to Pokhara where a hot shower and one of the town's many bakeries await us.

Today's six kilometre walk is expected to take around four hours with a total ascent of 380 metres and a descent of 680 metres.

icon Day 13: Free day in Pokhara to relax
Location:

  Pokhara


Accommodation:

  Hotel


Pokhara is smaller and more relaxed than Kathmandu and is beautifully situated on the banks of Phewa Tal (lake). Only foothills separate the town from the high mountains and there are superb views of the snowcapped Annapurna range, including Machhapuchhre - the famous 'Fishtail' mountain. Our day here is free to relax after the trek. There is the option to take a small boat across the lake and walk to the Japanese Peace Pagoda or simply relax in one of the lakeside cafe gardens after exploring the many souvenir shops.

icon Day 14: Drive to Kathmandu
Location:

  Kathmandu


Accommodation:

  Hotel


Today we drive back to Kathmandu. The drive takes around 6 hours, however along the way we are rewarded with views of the Himalaya.

icon Day 15: Trip ends in Kathmandu

This tour was absolutely brilliant, and this was down to the effort of the tour leaders making us all feel welcomed.

They all ensured we were having a great time, and ensured that no one was made to feel as like they were slowing the group down.

All the tour guides made sure we all had fun, they all engaged with us and were knowledgeable about the local and wider area and cultures.

This was an absolutely brilliant tour, and a lot of that is due to the group and Su, Kazi, Sundar and Sujan.

What do you love most about Northern India?

"From deserts and mountain ranges to ancient forts and step wells - Northern India is incredibly diverse. "

A 'MUST' whilst you're there?

"The ancient monuments are wonders of architecture and colour. You'll feel like you're in Asia, the Middle East and even Europe at times. "

Favourite time of year to visit Northern India

"Winter! During summer temperatures get very high so winter (Nov - Feb) is much more comfortable. But don't worry! You'll still enjoy sunny hot weather, it just won't be unbearable. "

@lizaliddy's Top Tips

"Don't be afraid to get amongst it! India is so fun and energetic. There's always a lot going on - which can be overwhelming. But if you're open to it, it can be a really cool experience. "

Benefits of a tour guide for Northern India

"Finding hidden little gems, like the Bahubali Hills in Udaipur. An insider's guide is the best help when it comes to unique experiences and (most importantly) yummy food!"

Must pack items for Northern India

"A local (or international) SIM card. As the most populated country on the planet, India is BUSY. It can be confusing to get around, so having access to maps whenever you need them is a godsend. "

Benefits of a tour guide for Angkor Wat

"There are many tour guides at each temple waiting to give you a tour on a tuk-tuk. You can explore by yourself too. Rent a bicycle to get around easily. I'd recommend a motorbike, it's faster!"

Must pack items for Angkor Wat

"Wear appropriate clothing that covers your shoulders and knees. You'll spend a lot of time walking so wear comfortable shoes. Bring bug repellant and sunscreen!"

"Spend at least 2 days exploring! If you're not on a tour, rent a motorbike and have the freedom to explore on your own. Be careful with your money, as they don't accept any torn or ripped cash."

Where can you get tickets if you're not on a tour?

"You can purchase at the Angkor pass ticket counters. Book it a day before, have it delivered to your hotel and skip the line! Or, book online on the Angkor Enterprise website and show your ticket."

Are there restaurants nearby?

"You'll find shops at every temple, if not, then nearby. They sell drinks or snacks, and clothing (traditional clothes for photos). There is a place at Angkor Wat for sit-down food and drinks."
