Overview

The trek in the foothill of Annapurna range provides opportunity to visit villages and experience cultural life of simple folks living in hills. The elevation does not reach over 2000 meter therefore it is not a strenuous trek. Weather along the trek is quite warm except in December and January. Snow is not expected. The trail is very much used by local people and traders. Teashops dotted all along the trail make the walk interesting. The famous Machhapuchare peak (Matterhorn of Nepal) can always be seen from any point on this trek.

Meet your guide at the airport or hotel in Pokhara and then drive to Dhumpus Phedi; the drive is about 1 hour- about 40 km north west of Pokhara city. You drive through a large Tibetan camp at Hyanjha where local handicraft can be purchased and weaving of Tibetan carpet can be observed. The next village before Phedi is Suikhet. Depending upon weather, physical and logistical condition Suikhet provides alternative route to Dhumpus. The road to Phedi in the Yamdi Khola (river) valley is quite good. From Phedi you start climbing up hill to Dhumpus (1770 m). It takes about 2 hour easy walk up the stairs through the terraced rice field. It is a large Gurung village. There are several tea houses and lodge accommodations in this village.

From Dhumpus the trail climbs steadily and gradually to Pothana (1890m). The gradual uphill walk is about 2 hours. Lunch stop at at Pothana. Instead of taking the main trail to Ghandrung (1951m), one of the best-known villages in the foothill of Annapurna, situated above Modi Khola (river) you take the trail to Australian Camp (2232m); it is a well known name and has vantage point to see the Himalaya range all around. The trail from Pothana turns southwest to Khare (1524m) and Naundanda (1457m). In the beginning you make a gradual uphill ascend for about 45 minutes. After spending sometime at the vantagepoint you continue to descend the trail to Khara (1457m); it should take about one hour easy downhill walk. Overnight lodge Australian camp.

 

Highlights

Australian camp was set up as they were the first to get here and provide a beautiful 360 degree view of the Pokhara valley and the beautiful Macchapucchre. It is one of the best destinations to see the culture and geographical landscape and enjoy a sub-tropical climate in Nepal. You travel in high altitude regions without too much concern about high altitude sickness as you reach elevation just over 2000 meter.

Inclusions

  • All meals and accommodation in lodge/tea house during the trek.
  • Service of trek guide.
  • Porters to carry personal baggage each 10 kg
