Itinerary

Expand All
Day 1. Kathmandu

We meet with the instructor at the airport and go to rest in our hotel. Amazing and original capital will initially cause a shock on the number of people, cars, bicycles. It seems as if we are plunging into complete chaos. It takes a little time to adapt and see the true beauty and originality of this huge city. Let us stop for the night in the area of ​​Tamel - the tourist center of the city, with hostels, souvenir shops, travel agencies and shops with equipment for trekking and climbing. In the evening we will go on a tour of Kathmandu.

Day 2. Transfer to the Himalayas and the beginning of the trek to Annapurna Base Camp

We have a long and very extreme redeployment deep into Nepal . The roads of this mountainous country often wind up serpentines on difficult terrain. From the window, we will see how they live Nepal s Ci in the villages and small towns. A glimpse of Pokhara, a close acquaintance with which we still have to. Then we sit down on custom-made jeeps, which will bring us almost to Ulleri, from where all the main routes in the Annapurna reserve can be seen. Here we start our track and we. Register TIMS- and permits and hit the road. The first steps are already impressive: the stone steps lead to the realm of the real tropics, jungles merge above their heads, flowers smell sweet and wonderful birds chirp. The forest is full of life and color, and around the villages are spread bright rice plantations. Here in such a magnificent entourage we come to Ulleri, where we settle in the most picturesque lodge and rest after a long journey.

Trekking: 3 km. Climbing height: 200m.

Day 3. Gorepani and rhododendron forest

We continue to gain altitude. Our track to Annapurna Base Camp runs the world's largest rhododendron forest. Here it is not shrubby, as in the Carpathians or in the Caucasus. Rhododendron reaches the size of real trees. When they bloom, the sight becomes truly delightful: as if clouds of all shades of pink and lilac descended on the slopes .... We arrive in the small village of Gorepani (2860 m). From here there is a view of Dgaulahiri (8167 m) and the Nilgiri South (6839 m).

Day 4. Dawn on Poon Hill - Tadapani

We wake up at 5 in the morning and, taking the headlamps, we begin the night ascent to Poon Hill (Poon Hill). Climbing to a height of 3200 meters will take 30-40 minutes. Here, on top of Poon Hill, we will meet a stunning sunrise. We will remember it for the rest of our life: the mountain ranges of Annapurna and Dgaulahiri in the first rays of the sun, and in the deep mountain valleys the velvet twilight still reigns ... We return to the lodge, have breakfast and continue the track to Annapurna Base Camp.
The paved path again leads through dense thickets of tree-like rhododendrons and cozy Nepalese settlements, immersed in exotic vegetation. We go along the rivers and terraces on the slopes of the mountains, where Nepalese traditionally grow rice. In the evening we come to the village of Tadapani (2630 m). It offers a beautiful view of the mountain Machapuchare (6998 m), in Nepal, "Fishtail". This name it received because of the two peaks, which, when viewed from the west, form a shape resembling a fish's tail. At dawn, the sharp corners of Machapuchare, Annapurna and Hinchuli burn with a fiery flower under the first rays of the sun. Pistine is a magnificent sight! And do not go anywhere - everything can be seen right from the veranda ♥. We choose the most panoramic loggia and relax after the track :).

Trekking: 10 km. ↑ 1000 m. ↓ 1100m.

Day 5. Another sunrise over the Himalayas - Chomrong

A great start to the day is provided: a cup of coffee, sunrise over the most beautiful eight-thousand-meter planets of the planet ... But the track to the Annapurna base camp continues - now it crosses a deep gorge. The trail leading down is very steep. Fortunately, the rise is more gentle;). In Chomrong we will have dinner, we will have time to relax and recharge our batteries. Tomorrow it will be useful to us.

Trekkig: 8 km (half day). ↑ 300m. ↓ 1000m.

Day 6. Dovang

Alas, it's time to test yourself for strength - there will be the most difficult transition in the whole track to the Annapurna base camp. Go down to the Chomrong-Khola River. Down the steep steps, of which there are 2114 pieces! Any gym will hide :). But we are in the Himalayas, where everything just does not happen. We cross the river over the bridge and re-gain height. On the way we will see whole flocks of wild monkeys, with two kinds of that. Our goal is a lodge in the village of Dovang, dinner and a warm bed.

Train: 10 km. ↑ 750m ↓ 350m.

Day 7. Along the Modi-Khola Valley to the BMC

Today we go along the Modi-Khola river, which originates from the South Annapurna Glacier. Soon we will leave to the Hounku cave - this is a small rocky canopy, where, according to legend, the holy hermit lived. Overnight stay at BMC - Machapuchare Base Camp. You need to go quickly - everywhere there are signs with a warning of avalanche danger. But the transition is very picturesque and easy. We are surrounded by steep slopes of the mountains, you have to lift your head to see the sky. In the evening we traditionally walk on one of the nearest spurs of Machapuchare and admire the moraine of its glacier.

Trekking: 9 km. ↑ 1200m.

Day 8. Annapurna Base Camp (ABC, Annapurna Base Camp, 4130 m)

All this time, gradually gaining altitude, we underwent acclimatization training necessary for climbing. After all, the height of ABC inspires respect.
To enjoy the sunrise in the base Annapurna , we leave early. It feels light frost - we warm well. Things are left at the lodge, let's go to Annapurna base camp radially and lightly. The rise in ABC is smooth, without steep climb. Our route lies between the peaks of Annapurna and each of them is beautiful. We try to capture in memory the stunning view of the formidable eight-thousand-meter peak, admire the glaciers and listen to the distant crash of avalanches and rock falls. We have reached the ultimate goal of our track! We descend to the Machapuchare camp, where we eat, and then we drop the altitude to the village of Bambu. Ahead of waiting for well-deserved rest and excursions!

Trekking: 17 km . ↑ 400m. ↓ 1400m

Day 9. In the heat, to hot springs

We observe how the nature around is filled with life. Becomes more joyful and us. The descent is simple, go to the village of Jean Danda (Jean-Danda, 1780 m). There are hot thermal springs 20 minutes walk from the village in the valley of the Modi-Khola River. There are two pools. In the lower stream, the water temperature reaches 40 degrees! It will be nice to plunge into these "baths" after the icy highlands and the daytime transition. On this winning note, the active part of the track to the Annapurna Base Camp ends.

Day 10. Pokhara, Lake Fewa (Phewa)

We descend through villages in which neither civilization nor the influence of tourism is felt at all. In 2018, a grandiose suspension bridge of epic proportions was built over the river, which makes it very easy to go to the village where the jeep are waiting for us. For lunch we get to Pokhara and stay in a good hotel.

Then we go on an exciting boat trip on Pheva Lake, from the boats we enjoy the picturesque view of the Great Himalayan Ridge with its eight thousand-high peaks of Daulagiri, Annapurna, Manaslu. On the hill is the Stupa of Peace - a Buddhist temple, where we will meet a wonderful sunset over the panorama of the city and the Himalayas.

Day 11. Kathmandu

Moving to the Nepalese capital by registered transport will take half a day. We check in the hotel, have a rest and still have time to go to one or two churches. In the evening we go to the local market. After all, Kathmandu is a paradise for lovers of souvenirs. Be careful: if you decide to make an expensive purchase, be sure to compare prices / quality for such things in several places.

Day 12. Inspection of the Kathmandu valley

In the morning we go to the south - to Patan (Lalitpur), where a historical tour awaits us. The second largest city in the country forms a conglomerate with a capital. The officially accepted name, Lalitpur, means "city of beauty". And this is hard to argue. An unimaginable amount of attractions is concentrated in Patan. We will visit the Royal Square (Durbar), where the Royal Palace, pagodas and temples are located. Then go to a large temple complex of Hinduism - Pashupatinath. From here it is not far to the Buddhist stupa Bodnath (Bouddanath, Boddinat) and the eponymous temple complex.

Day 13. The capital of Nepal, fly home

Today the track to Annapurna Base Camp ends. We do not waste time before departure and go explore the sights of the capital. Visit Swayambhunath, or Monkey Temple - Buddhist temple center with one of the oldest stupas in the world. Swayambhunath lies on the outskirts, besides on a hill, and from here unforgettable views of the Himalayas and the Kathmandu valley open up. For the last time, take a look at the mountains that have recently been conquered. In the city center in the Kumari Ghar Palace, we can see a living Hindu deity - Kumari (Kumari Devi).

The journey to Nepal has come to an end and the planes are waiting for us to go home. It will be a little sad, but vivid memories, strong impressions and beautiful photos will be a worthy consolation away from these wonderful mountains. Or maybe we will meet again on the Himalayan trails? :)

FAQs

I'm going for the first time, I'm afraid I can go the route? What preparation is needed?
All once the first time went to the mountains. And even among the most presumptuous tourists and climbers, also once had a first exit. Very often there are beginners on our trips. The main thing is not to be afraid! When we go along the route, the instructor carefully watches the group. If necessary, we can go twice as slow, and do halts more often. Where you need to prompt and correct. The main thing is your health. From experience, I can say that usually adaptation to the conditions occurs on the second, third day of the trip - the fatigue gradually passes and it becomes much easier to go.
What kind of people are coming with us, how many people are in the group and what is its age composition?
Almost everyone is coming, and already in the process of the campaign we get to know each other. What I love hiking for is a bunch of new friends and acquaintances after each of them. The number of participants in groups is usually from 3 to 15 people. The age composition, as a rule, does not matter much. From experience, I can say that most tourists are people from 20 to 45 years old, sometimes, of course, there are older people, although they run in the mountains better than young people, sometimes you just wonder how it is! it all depends on your desire and mood! The vast majority are people of mental labor, all who need to reboot in a good company of good people. After all, as a rule, there are no bad people on campaigns !!
If my train arrives a day earlier or vice versa, too late?
If you arrive a day earlier, the best thing is to rent a hotel room and take a walk around the city. If your train arrives late in the evening, and our trip to the mountains starts in the morning, then the most reasonable is to take tickets and arrive a day earlier, because it will be almost impossible to catch up with a group in the mountains, except for a couple of three routes.
Do I need to reserve seats in advance?
As a rule, it is advisable to do this in advance, so that we can figure out the amount of equipment if it is needed for hire and the amount of food. Well, in addition, do not forget about tickets, remember that on the same May holidays and on New Year's, tickets for trains are bought up almost immediately as soon as they go on sale.
Could I take children on a hike?
It’s probably better not to take very young children anyway, except to go with them on an individual program. I took the children of 7 years old - it was just such an individual trip , where we completely adapted to the little travelers. On the whole, in the general group, 8 year old children walked with us in an adult campaign. Approximately such an age, that is, a child from 8 years old, there is a reason to take with him to general groups. In general, it must be added that children easily endure all kinds of hiking difficulties. As practice shows, if a child is capricious, then it will definitely not be easy for him and his parents, in fact, as in ordinary city life, but if he is interested and he takes part in the adventure all the time, then such children do not cause problems at all.

Well, I’ll also add that it makes no sense to take children under 6 years old with them to the adult group, they simply will not chase after us. Especially for the smallest, we have a route with children "Young Tourist ", designed for parents with children.
Who is cooking?
Without fail twice a day - in the morning and in the evening, we cook hot food - soups and cereals at the stake, or if there is none, and this happens somewhere on the alpine, then on gas. We have a snack at lunch - depending on the conditions and time, it can be either with a fire or without a fire. Usually, duty officers are responsible for cooking on the hike, and the instructor looks after the process. Firewood is collected by the whole group. The attendants are directly engaged in the kitchen. Every day attendants are replaced.
How hard will it go?
Our routes are all divided into conditional categories of difficulty and if you do not take the Fan Mountains, which climb Energy or Elbrus from the North, most of them are designed for ordinary people. It is clear that the load will be decent, but in moderation. If you are not confident in your abilities, it is best to consult with us, we will definitely pick you the route by force. Some may force themselves to run a couple of weeks before the start, in order to slightly bring their physical condition and endurance into condition. I already wrote, but once again I will say that the first couple of days will be the hardest - your body may be slightly surprised by the new loads, so a crash tour will quite naturally appear. But, from experience, on the third or fourth day, you stop noticing the backpack behind your back, the body is completely drawn into the traveling rhythm and you begin to enjoy the process.
How much will my backpack weigh?
The weight of the backpack is formed in two parts: your belongings and catering and equipment. A normal backpack weighs usually in the region of 10 - 17 kilograms for women and 12 - 22 kilograms for men, it all depends on your equipment and personal items that you take with you (the spread is so big, because, for example, for the summer Crimea, personal items you need nothing at all, while you need to warm yourself very seriously during a winter hike to the same Crimea). Out of these kilograms of public equipment (kilograms) there will be three to four kilograms for girls on the first day of the trip, and 5-7 kilograms for men, depending on the route. Don’t worry, it’s not so much! Well, then, every day, the backpack will only become lighter and lighter.
What to take on a hike?
We have a lot of different articles on the website on the subject of equipment, laid out in a special section. Of the special you need to have a backpack, rug, sleeping bag and tent (all this can be rented if you don’t have your own, but it is better to have your own equipment, of course). After each route, we have in additions a link to the manners such as “ what to take with you on a trip ”, depending on the route and season, the equipment will also be different.
Should I Be A Vegetarian Or Do Not Eat Some Foods?
Be sure to indicate this moment in correspondence or write when filling out an application so that we can adjust the layout and notify the instructor. As a rule, the easiest way is to take a portion of evening porridge for yourself until the moment when the stew is laid there.
How in the mountains with a connection?
The connection in places is very good, as a rule, on the peaks and ridges there is no problem with this, and in places in the valleys and on the sidelines, respectively, there is none. Therefore, please warn your relatives that sometimes you will not be in touch so that they do not worry again. I’ll also add that it’s usually nowhere to charge equipment if it doesn’t pass through settlements, because there are no outlets in the forest (about the possibility of access to electricity, read the descriptions of specific routes). Therefore, it makes sense to take a power bank with you, recently, they are taken by many, a very relevant thing.
Alcohol, how do you feel about them?
To be honest, not really. We did not come here to thump, in the end. Where is the thread at the exit to the sea no one forbids you to drink beer, or a glass of wine, overlooking the local surf, but do not try especially hard.
What if I get lost?
The probability of this is extremely small, for our part we are very keen to reduce it to zero. But still, it may happen that you went off to photograph another interesting stone on a forest path, the trailing one did not see you, and suddenly you realize that the group has gone ahead.

First things first - you need to drive the panic to wherever you go, we now absolutely do not need it. Then we try to shout to anyone from the group, we can and should scream as if you saw a bear in front of you. If it doesn’t help, and there is a connection in your area, call. If there is no connection, do not panic. Now we need panic even less. We stay in place. We are not going to look for a group. We sit and wait when they find us. We are waiting on the very path where you just separated from the group. About every thirty minutes, the instructor makes a halt, while counting people. Therefore, please, do not try to take the shorter obvious path or cut through the forest when you hear the rumble of a river somewhere below - it may not be the one we need, and moreover, not the fact that you can go along the river. Sit and wait on the trail until they find you !!!
