Annapurna Panorama Trek
700

Overview

Annapurna Panorama trek is an ideal choice for those folks seeking short and relatively easy trekking to see the Annapurna mountain range in warmer temperatures (thanks to lower elevations). This exciting Short and easy trekking package  is designed to give travelers an immensely satisfying scenic walk within a tight schedule, with taste of Nepal’s diversity of natural and cultural gems in a short time frame.  This scenic foot trail winds through patchwork valleys, dense green forests and past icy waterfalls where we can stop to cool our faces with white mineral, natural water. Around every turning point is a tantalizing glimpse of the high mountains in-front of our eyes, whole horizons of which will be revealed as we reach higher elevations.

The most popular massifs of the Annapurna Region are protected by the first and largest conservation area in Nepal with glorious views of Mt. Annapurna I, Annapurna II, Annapurna III, Annapurna IV, Gangapurna and Annapurna South. Further views of the mountainous area include amazing panoramic scenes of Annapurna South, Hiunchuli, Machhapuchhre, Lamjung Himal, Tukuche Peak and third highest mountain in the world Mt. Dhaulagiri.

Annapurna Panorama View trekking usually starts in Pokhara but can be customized as per your wish. We enjoy this trek amongst spectacular mountain scenery that take us through charming villages inhabited by the Gurungs and Magars and through dense Rhododendron Forests full of birds and deep sub-tropical valleys, all set below the Annapurna range with the picturesque peak of Machchhapuchhre (Fish Tail) dominating the skyline. The Annapurna Panorama Trekking with Nepal Eco Adventure gives an excellent taste of the culture and traditions of the Poon Magars and Gurungs of the upper Himalayan region. At the climax of this trek we will climb Poon Hill at dawn to enjoy one of the most spectacular mountain panoramas on Earth. The Annapurna Panorama trek is also a shorter alternative for the Annapurna Circuit Trek and Annapurna Base Camp Trek.

Itinerary

Day 1
Drive to Pokhara (820m)

Early in the morning, we will take a wonderful scenic drive to Pokhara as we cruise through colorful rural settings and after about 6 hours, we reach the lake city. On reaching Pokhara, we will check into our Hotel, refresh and stroll around the lakeside and visit the Phewa Lake and Barahi temple. Overnight in a hotel.

Day 2
Drive to Nayapool and trek to Hile (1430m)

We will hit the road and reach Nayapool in an hour, from where the actual trekking trail begins. We will walk on an easy trail across many little villages and have lunch on the way. We will follow Bhurungdi Khola and its canyon towards Hile. The trail is remarkably populated by people of different ethnicities and castes. We will spend our first night in a lodge which has a natural vibe being surrounded by paddy fields.

Day 3
Trek to Ghorepani

The early morning climb is a tough one over the stony staircases, through the village of Ulleri along with the herds of mules and donkeys transporting provisions for upper regions. In the afternoon, the trail goes through different fields and lush green forests with a number of bird species and flowers, the most common species of plants here are the world’s highest rhododendron trees. We will finally reach Ghorepani which is situated on a ridge overlooking the mountain ranges and is a well-developed tourist destination in the region. A great view of Annapurna and Dhaulagiri can be seen from the famous view point called Poonhill, which is only 30 minutes walk from Ghorepani. As one of the main attractions of the trek, Poonhill is a spot that no one skips. Overnight at trekking lodge.

The walk begins by ascending up through the rhododendron forest, towards a hill top called Deurali. Then we go downhill (moderate trail-not always downhill) to Banthati. For most part of the trail we will trek through rhododendron forests, the beautiful flowers adorning the jungle with colors in spring when they bloom. Once we reach Banthati, we will stop to have lunch and then start on a steep trail until we reach Tadapani, a small village with some tea houses. Overnight in a lodge.

After breakfast at Tadapani, we will descend gently all the way through rhododendron, oak and other kinds of dense forests with different kinds of birds chirping on the way. This is one of the most popular destinations for the bird watchers. Ghandruk is a traditional Gurung village with friendly, welcoming people who will entertain us with their heartwarming hospitality. There is a handicraft centre and Gurung museum where we can learn more about these incredible people and their history. From this village we can watch sunset and sunrise setting mountains like Annapurna South, Hiunchuli, Gangapurna (7455m.), Annapurna III (7755m.) and Fishtail ablaze with golden light. Overnight in trekking lodge.

Day 6
Trek to Jhinu Danda (natural hot spring)

After breakfast, the trail climbs up through Ghandruk village for a while and continues downhill through the farming villages to a river, where we will cross a suspension bridge at the bottom, and then follow a steep short climb to Jhinudanda. We’ll take some rest in the lodge and walk down to the riverside to enjoy the natural hot spring. After relaxing in the hot water, we will walk back up to the lodge and stay the night.

Day 7
Trek to Photana

We can go to the hot spring again in the morning for a dip, and later hop back onto the trail which leads down through a valley to cross another bridge. After that, there is a short climb that will take us to Landruk. There are a few more suspension bridges to cross and many waterfalls to enjoy on the way. Landruk is a big Magar village with inhabitants and their traditional attires and culture. After lunch at Landruk the trek continues with few ups and downs leading to the bottom of a hill at Bhaisekharka. After that, the trail takes a steep uphill climb to a ridge at Deurali and through a forest. Deurali is located on the top of a ridge from where we can enjoy splendid views of Mt. Dhaulagiri, the Annapurna range and many more. Overnight at trekking Lodge.

Day 8
Trek down to Phedi and drive to Pokhara
