Start before dawn and hike to Poon Hill. This hill at 3,210 meters is a wonderful viewpoint preferred for sunrise views. At this melting pot, you can find people from many countries in one morning. Snap away happily capturing the beautiful sunrise views over Annapurna and Dhaulagiri mountain ranges. Later return to Ghorepani, have breakfast and trek to Tadapani for the night.
After an early breakfast at Deurali we trek along a river bank, make a tedious steep climb and arrive at Machhapuchhre Base Camp (MBC) at an altitude of 3,700 meters. The view from MBC is mesmerizing and rewarding with views of Annapurna, Gangapurna, and Machhapuchhre peaks. Camp at MBC for the night.
Begin early today before dawn, as it’s a long day of trek. Starting from MBC, the vegetation grows thinner and as we tread uphill, the views become more and more beautiful. Today you will work overtime with your cameras as we trek towards ABC. Upon reaching Annapurna Base Camp, we will enjoy the views of several peaks in the Annapurna Massif. Leaving behind ABC, we retrace our steps to MBC and trek down further to the village of Bamboo.
After a leisurely morning in Bamboo, we begin the trek first coming to Sinuwa via an easy downhill trek. After a brief stop here, we head towards Chhomrong and on to Jhinu. The place has a natural hot-spring where you can relax in the hot water and let your muscles regain strength. Spend the rest of the day at leisure and stay overnight at Jhinu in a guesthouse.
