A lake near our hotel is a nice place to take an evening stroll and the lakeside town has lots of options to dine. Have an option to fly to Pokhara at an extra cost.

    Today is the first day of our trek which starts after a one and half hours’ drive. Starting from the place called Nayapul, the trek goes alongside the Modi Khola, a Himalayan river flowing down from the Annapurna, to Birethanti and to Hile and finally to Tikhedhunga. We spend approximately five hours including the lunchtime before we reach Tikhedhunga where we will stay overnight today in a simple tea house.

    The second day of the trek, we trek to Banthati, after Tikhedhunga immediately crosses the two suspension bridge and start the vertical climb up to where 3232 stone step must be climbed so that lot of beginners trekker have a problem. Due to this reason we only trek to Banthati today and enjoy the wide valley of Bhurungdi Khola and beautiful terrace cultivate landscape. And if you constantly follow the same path to reach Ghorepani, we have another option for you however there is off road 4 wheel jeep service in operation to Ulleri you could take a jeep and avoid the hard steep. Suggest you to just go to Banthati and stay overnight at Banthati.


    The third day heading to Ghorepani after breakfast. It is a gradual up walk all the way to Ghorepani. The trek passes through beautiful peace and serene rhododendron forest. As we walk upon the well-trodden mountain trails, it brings some of the incredible things in our view including the majestic Himalayas. Once we reach to Ghorepani at the elevation of 2875 meters above sea level, we will be stunned by the real close up view of the Himalayan peaks. If we reach there for the sunset time, it will be one rewarding sunset experience.

    It is going to be a very early morning today as we are hiking up to Poon Hill at the elevation of 3210 meters above sea level to see a breathtaking panoramic view of the Annapurna and Dhaulagiri mountain range in the Himalaya. Given the good weather condition, the one hour hike up early in the morning will be rewarded by a heavenly view of the mountains and sunrise that makes us feel exalted. After sunrise, we hike down to Ghorepani tea house to have our breakfast and start the trek to Tadapani. After an approximately five hours trek, we reach another spectacular place, Tadapani, and stay overnight in a tea house there. Have an option for you according to your physical condition if you like to continue to the loop we don’t take you Poonhill we take you to fallow the trail to Tadapani where another side same height and 90% similar view from Deurali and makes your walk easier to Tadapani. if you couldn’t continuous from Ghorepani we could back the same way from Ghorepani or you could follow the trail to Jomsom till Tatopani (hot spring) please tell us what you want and be clear there are several options according to your physical fitness that could make easier.


    Trek to Ghandruk from Tadapani for about three hours after breakfast.
