Day 01 - Arrival in Kathmandu
Upon arrival at Kathmandu International Airport transfer to your hotel in Kathmandu or Bhaktapur. A short briefing will follow concerning the necessary formalities and your itinerary. Depending upon your arrival time you may spend free time visiting nearby sanctuaries or resting.

Day 02 - Kathmandu-Dhampus [1700m]
We start in Kathmandu and fly or drive to beautiful Pokhara on the shores of Lake Phewa, then down to Phedi, alongside the Seti River, where we start our trek. Our walk to Dhampus village takes us past terraced hillsides and then up to the hilltop village of Dhampus, where we’ll meet a mix of Gurung, Brahman, and Magar people. The distinctive peak of Machhapuchhare (Fishtail) and Annapurna South are fantastic from here. Overnight in Dhampus.

Day 03 - Trek to Landruk [1646m]

Today’s trek is an easy walk along the ridgeline from Dhampus to the village of Landruk, across open meadows and through small villages. Landruk is on the trekking route to Annapurna Base Camp, and fabulous views of the mountains are a highlight of the route. Landruk is famous for its honey hunting festival, where intrepid harvesters climb bamboo ladders and dangle from ropes to gather honeycombs from sheer cliff faces. Overnight in Landruk.

Day 04 - Trek to Ghandrung (1940m)
Today we trek to Ghandrung, one of the most popular destinations for trekkers in Nepal, known for its beautiful mountain views. Visible across the valley from Landruk, we’ll have to go down the hill, cross the river over a bridge, and then head back uphill to Ghandrung. Ghandrung is a lively village with some fine accommodations. Overnight in Ghandrung.
