From ancient kingdoms to majestic mountain vistas, this walking trip takes you through the breath-taking Himalayan landscape of the Annapurna Foothills. Pass awe-inspiring glaciers, cross mountain pastures, and encounter mule trains carrying supplies to remote villages. From your route around the Foothills, you'll see glimpses of Annapurna 1, one of the highest mountains in the world reaching an impressive 8,091m. Its surrounding sister mountains are equally imposing and create magnificent panoramas from any viewpoint.

This trip covers a wide variety of terrain, from lowland pastures and peaceful villages to powerful glaciers and stunning mountain views. In the rugged mountain scenery, you stay in mountain communities and meet friendly Nepali hill people as they go about their daily lives. This trip is not only visually superb, but also gives you a chance to immerse yourself in the local culture.

Rest and revive in cosy mountain teahouses with friendly locals around the foothills of Annapurna. Time spent in Kathmandu and Pokhara completes the adventure with insights into Nepali culture and tradition.

Please note: Due to the nature of this trip, it could operate on an amended itinerary in high risk weather conditions; your private guide will determine the most suitable route.

Day 1: Arrive in Kathmandu

Namaste! Welcome to Nepal. You'll be met at Kathmandu airport and transferred to your first accommodation (approx. 15mins); here you'll receive your briefing from your private guide. If time allows, spend your evening exploring the bustling city of Kathmandu.

Kathmandu is an incredible mixture of legend and modern development with a rich artistic and cultural heritage. Narrow lanes lead to small squares and courtyards where ornate carved balconies overlook shrines and temples. Buzzing markets and bazaars are the centre of Nepali life where stalls and small hole-in-the-wall shops sell everything from bangles to Buddhas to beetroot.

If you arrive early, why not take time to climb to the Swayambhunath Temple. Situated on a hilltop, the instantly recognisable stupa with its Buddha eyes attracts a steady stream of pilgrims and the views out over the valley are superb.
Overnight Kathmandu.

Day 2: Fly to Pokhara

Enjoy your breakfast before transferring to the airport for your internal flight to Pokhara (30mins). From here, you'll be transferred to your accommodation in Pokhara; this is where your unforgettable walking tour begins.

Pokhara enjoys a delightful setting on a lake beneath the snow-capped peaks of the Annapurna range, making it an excellent place to relax and contemplate what lies ahead. Pokhara is part of a once vibrant trade route extending between India and Tibet. This is the land of Magars and Gurungs - hardworking farmers and valorous warriors who have earned world-wide fame as Gurkha soldiers.

You can enjoy a walk in the lakeside area, only a short stroll from your hotel. Pokhara is a lively place in the evening, so it is worth heading out to experience another side of Nepalese life. You may even use your spare time for boating on the Fewa Lake which is highly recommended whilst in Pokhara.
Overnight Pokhara (breakfast included).

Day 3: Pokhara to Landruk (13km/8.1mi)

After breakfast, you'll be transferred to the start of your walk near Shyauli bazaar (approx. 2hrs). From here you begin your walk to Landruk (1,730m high) through the forest trails where you can see the spectacular Annapurna South, Hiunchuli and Fishtail mountains.
Overnight Landruk (breakfast, lunch & dinner included).

Day 4: Landruk to Jhinu Danda (7km/4.3mi)

Today's trail descends, crossing the Modi river before stopping in Samrung village for lunch. Continue on to Jhinu Danda where you can visit the natural hot springs. This traditional village sits at 1,780m high.
Overnight Jhinu Danda (breakfast, lunch & dinner included).

Day 5: Jhinu Danda to Ghandruk (8km/5.0mi)

Begin your walk by a small stream, climbing up a small stone staircase through the terrace fields. From the top of the ridge, you'll have great views of Jhinu Danda and Chhomrong villages. Continue through dense rhododendron forest until you reach the beautiful village of Ghandruk (1,940m high). Here, they have their own dialect, culture, costume and lifestyle; Ghandruk is also home to many Gurka soldiers. This village is famous for it's spectacular mountain views of Annapurna South, Gangapurna, Annapurna III, Hiunchuli & Machhapuchhre. In the evening, you can choose to visit the Annapurna Conservation office and Gurung museums.
Overnight Ghandruk (breakfast, lunch & dinner included).

Day 6: Ghandruk to Tadapani (10km/6.2mi)

After breakfast, begin your walk to Tadapani at a much higher elevation of 2,630m. You will see beautiful rhododendron trees alongside the awe-inspiring Himalayas right in front of you. You may even see white monkeys running around the trees as you follow your guide along the trail.
Overnight Tadapani (breakfast, lunch & dinner included).

Day 7: Free Day

Spend the day resting your feet in the village of Tadapani. Literally translating to 'Far Water', Tadapani's name derives from a time when their water source was such a long distance from the village - this isn't the case anymore!
Overnight Tadapani (breakfast, lunch & dinner included).

Day 8: Tadapani to Ghorepani (10km/6.2mi)

Today's trail climbs up many stairs amidst the lustrous rhododendron forests. Pass rushing waterfalls and imposing trees as you meander towards Ghorepani.
Overnight Ghorepani (breakfast, lunch & dinner included).

Day 9: Free Day/Optional Poon Hill Walk

Take a rest day or enjoy the incredible sunrise from Poon Hill (3,210m), a fantastic vantage point to witness the breath-taking mountains, especially Annapurna South, Fishtail and Dhaulagiri (approx. 1hr) - you have to do this at least once in your life, right?
Overnight Ghorepani (breakfast, lunch & dinner included).

Day 10: Ghorepani to Ulleri/Hille (12km/7.5mi)

Leave the beautiful village of Ghorepani behind as you head towards Ulleri. The sound of flowing streams, birds chirping, bright rhododendron flowers, and of course, the striking mountain views accompany you along the path to Ulleri.
Overnight Ulleri/Hille (breakfast, lunch & dinner included).

Day 11: Ulleri/Hille to Pokhara

Enjoy a short walk, mostly downhill with some stairs before meeting your transfer back to Pokhara (approx. 2hrs). Spend your afternoon and evening soaking up the atmosphere in Pokhara.
Overnight Pokhara (breakfast included).

Wave goodbye to the beautiful lakeside city of Pokhara as you're transferred to the airport for your flight to Kathmandu. Enjoy your last night in this fascinating city, reliving the unforgettable memories of your Annapurna Foothills adventure.
Overnight Kathmandu (breakfast included).
