Annapurna Dhaulagiri Trekking begins once you land in the busy and historic Kathmandu valley from where we either drive or fly to Pokhara. Pokhara is well known for its clean environment, natural beauty and lakes amongst the domestic and international travellers from all around the globe. After spending a night in Pokhara we drive for around 1hr 30min towards Nayapul from where the Annapurna Dhaulagiri Trekking trial begins and reach Ghandruk through Birenthanti, a beautiful village at the Modi Khola riverbank. From Ghandruk we gradually ascend to Tadapni walking through the Rhododendron and Oak forests. The Annapurna Dhaulagiri trek continues ahead to Bhaisi Kharkha from where we trek to Tadapani.
The journey continues in the Annapurna Dhaulagiri Trekking trial towards Bayli Kharka from where the path leads us to Upper Chistibung crossing Lower Chistibung. From Upper Chistibung we slowly ascend towards the Kopra Ridge for overnight stay. The next morning we hike upto Khayer Lake, the highest point of the trek and return to Kopra Ridge. We unwaveringly descend to Swanta from Kopra Ridge following the same path till Lower Chistibung. We then trek in the direction of Ghorepani walking through the village of Chitre. After an early morning hike to Poonhill (3,210m) to witness the spectacular sunrise over the Dhaulagiri and Annapurna Himalayan Ranges. We leave Ghorepani and head towards Tirkhedhunga following the trial to Nayapul from where we drive back to Pokhara. We return back to Kathmandu and you'll be dropped at the airport according to your flight time. The Annapurna Dhaulagiri trek ends with lots of memories that last lifelong.
