The Annapurna Ghorepani Trek begins in Nayapul, where we arrive after an hour’s journey from Pokhara. We start our hike in Nayapul and cross Modi Khola twice before we arrive in Birethanti (1025m). Birethanti offers some spectacular views of Mt. Machhapuchhre. From here we walk uphill, leave the Bhurungdi Khola to join a mountainous path across terraced fields and waterfalls before arriving in Tikhe Dhunga (1500m)
After stopping for lunch in Tikhe Dhunga, we start walking again – only this time we follow a more challenging path across several hundred stone steps before stopping in Ulleri (1960m). Ulleri is a small and peaceful hamlet where we also spend that night. The next day we head to Ghorepani following the typical mountain path until we reach Birethanti, where the path heads into a forest. From here we go to the left bank of the main river, crossing a wooden bridge and again walk across dense forests of rhododendrons before stopping for lunch in Nangetati.
After lunch we follow the same trail which once more passes through the same rhododendron forests before crossing the Ghorepani Pass (2780m). We stop for the night in Ghorepani and the next morning we ascend Poon Hill (3210m). he Annapurna I, Annapurna South, Tukuche, Nilgiri, Hiunchuli and Dhaulagiri are majestic mountains that can be best seen from only a few places and Poon Hill (3210m) is one such place.
From Ghorepani we follow the east ridge for about two hours up to the Deorali pass (3078m) which offers some excellent tea houses and superb mountain views. From Deorali, the trail drops steeply to Banthati and then Tadapani (2590m). We call it a night in Tadapani and the nest day we head to Ghandrung. The trail now passes through many scattered settlements, terraced farmlands and animal pastures as we arrive in Ghandrung. We visit the Gurung Museum and a Buddhist monastery in Ghandrung before heading back to Birethanti (Nayapul) the next day. Our trek ends in Nayapul and from there we catch a bus (Taxi) back to Pokhara.
