Day 2: Drive from Kathmandu to Pokhara (900m) overnight in hotel (960m)

Pass By: Pokhara Museum, Pokhara Nepal
Drive or fly to Pokhara. The flight is an optional extra for this itinerary. Pokhara is located about 200km west of Katmandu on the shores of the beautiful Lake Fewa. Pokhara is a mixture of restful and busy. It has the atmosphere of a relaxed “resort town” where visitors take it easy seeing the sights and resting before their Annapurna or Mustang trek and once again upon their return. But it is also a busy place with all these visitors arriving, leaving and exploring the lake and nearby sights of Pokhara. The option to drive from Kathmandu to Pokhara provides an opportunity to experience more of the real Nepal beyond the national parks and trekking trails. The scenery and people you will meet on the drive is also worth the experience.

Our outward trekking trail will take us along the western side of the valley where we will ascend through beautiful Rhododendron forests and pass through many small and welcoming villages. We will be walking in mind pace, so make sure to take in the beautiful view and local culture on the way. As you start ascending towards Ghandruk you will see the spectacular view of Himalayan peaks that better and better throughout the journey. Some of the mountains that are the highlights of the day and also for most of the trek are Madi Himal (5,553m), the sacred Mount Machhapuchhre (6,997m) also known as Mount Fishtail and Annapurna III (7,555m). The trek for the day ends once we reach Ghandruk, where we will get the opportunity to view a fantastic sunset over the Annapurna Range.

Above Deurali the valley widens and becomes less steep. After walking some stone staircase we reach the place where some people were killed by an avalanche a decade ago. We should not stop in this possible dangerous place for a long time. This place is warned of avalanche so continue trek ahead with aware until you get to a safe place. As you walk further, more beautiful White Mountains are seen and close. The trail turns to the left in the valley after Machhapuchhre Base Camp and it is pleasant to walk up to ABC though, the air is thinner now. You may feel at a high altitude now. It is recommended not to rush and walk gently. Now you can see the one of best 360˙degree Mountain View in the world from Base Camp.

Stop At: Sinuwa (upper Sinuwa), Ghandruk 33700, Nepal
We start our trek early today to try and reach Annapurna Base Camp in time to see the best of the morning sunrise as it spreads its rays over the countless icy peaks and the valley that surrounds us. On the way to Annapurna Base Camp from Machhapuchhre Base Camp, the scrubby vegetation fades to just a little grass and lots of rock, snow, and ice depending upon the season. We are now in the very heart of the Annapurna Sanctuary as the valley widens under the grinding power of the glacier. The multi-summit mountain wall of Annapurna South (7,219m) to Annapurna I (8,091m) now towers in front of us. We stand in a snowy mountain caldren of unmatched natural beauty. Take your time to soak in the scenery and take lots and lots of photos. Your guide will point out the main mountain peaks and the routes brave climbers have followed to reach their summit. But eventually, we must depart and commence our return down the glacier valley. The descent will be much faster than our ascent and we will end the day at the village of Sinuwa not far from Chhomrong.
