RouteKathmandu – Ghorepani – Poon Hill
Day 01: KATHMANDU: ARRIVAL DAY. 
Welcome to Kathmandu, the lovely and historic capital of Nepal! We’ll be at the airport waiting for you when you step off the plane, ready to transfer you to your hotel. You’ve had a long flight, so get some rest: your adventure begins tomorrow!
Day 02: FLIGHT TO POKHARA. 
Leave your hotel for a quick morning flight to Pokhara. Spend the rest of the day relaxing in this beautiful mountain city and prepare for the trek the following day.
Day 03: POKHARA TO NAYAPUL, NAYAPUL TO GHANDRUK .
We’ll kick the day off with a post-breakfast drive to Nayapul, where we’ll take the first steps of our trek! Our path will take us past the TIMS checkpost and entry to the Annapurna Conservation Area (time for a permit check!), winding through charming farmland and the Kymche Waterfall. The walking is easy and the views are beautiful. Our first stopover is in Ghandruk, an ornate traditional village that is also the home of the Annapurna Conservation Project.
Day 04: GHANDRUK TO TADAPANI. 
We’ll be doing some steep climbing today, although not terribly much of it. The path of ascent is a scenic one, winding through forests of magnolia and rhododendron. In flowering season, the sights and scents are absolutely amazing! If you keep your eyes peeled, you’ll catch sight of the Nepal gray langur monkey chirping at his peers as he passes through the treetops overhead! Tadapani is a major stopping point on the Annapurna trekking circuit, featuring stunning views of Annapurna II, Annapurna South, Hiunchuli, and Machapuchare, the famed “Fish Tail” peak.
Day 05: TADAPANI TO GHOREPANI
The trek from Tadapani to Ghorepani is notoriously hilly, with lots of up-and-down along the way! Your legs will feel the stretch, but you will delight at the sight of the dense, flowering forests all around you. Our path brings us over stony steps surrounded on all sides by dense undergrowth and creeping vines, making this leg of the trek feel like a proper adventure! We’ll cross the river by a handmade wooden bridge and gain Ghorepani, which has outstanding views of Dhaulagiri.
Day 06: GHOREPANI TO POON HILL, POON HILL TO ULLERI
The day kicks off early with an excursion to Poon Hill and an indescribably wonderful panorama of three Himalayan peaks (Dhaulagiri I, Annapurna I, and Manalsu) illuminated by the glowing rays of sunrise. From here, we’ll also be treated to views of the 6,000m-deep Kali Gandaki Gorge and the visual border of Nepal and Tibet as divided by the trans-Himalayan ranges. It’s back to our lodge for a late breakfast, and then we’re back on the trekking path! The stone steps are back again, stretching our legs and making for a vigorous early afternoon. We’ll stop for the night at Ulleri, where you can savor your last views of Annapurna South. 
Day 07:ULLERI TO NAYAPUL, NAYAPUL TO POKHARA
It’s not a long walk between Ulleri and Nayapul, allowing us ample time for the 5-hour drive back to Pokhara, and still leaving time for a half-day tour of the city that trekkers love. This is the home of the tranquil World Peace Pavilion, as well as the International Mountain Museum – an apt landmark for a team of newly-minted Annapurna trekkers! Be sure to take a look at the traditional Nepali jewelry on display at the market, as it is one of one of the area’s specialty handicrafts.
Day 08: POKHARA TO KATHMANDU
The six-hour drive from Pokhara to Kathmandu brings us back the way we originally came, ending again in a comfortable hotel. Your long trek is complete: it’s time for some rest! After an afternoon to nap and relax, we’ll meet up one last time for a celebratory dinner at one of the town’s finest Nepalese restaurants, where you can give us your feedback on the trek.
Day 09: KATHMANDU: DEPARTURE DAY 
Every great journey must, unfortunately, come to an end. After breakfast at your hotel, there’ll be a last bit of time to return any rental equipment, pick up souvenirs, and grab your things. We’ll get you to the airport for your flight home with time to spare!
