Trip Itinerary

At the airport, a representative from our office and a driver in a private vehicle will meet you. Following that, you will be driven to your hotel, where you will stay the night. You will eventually meet with your guide to discuss the walk and any equipment, documents, or other needs you may have while on the trail. If you don't have any equipment or clothing, you may easily buy or rent some in the Thamel region. If you have time after preparing for the trek, take an easy walk through Thamel.

Today, we'll take the typical tourist bus from Kathmandu to Pokhara. "Tourist" busses usually leave Kathmandu at 7:00 a.m. and travel for 6-7 hours, depending on road conditions. If you're exhausted after arriving at the hotel, take a break and go for a walk around the lakeside, or paddle any of the lakes. Stay overnight at the hotel.

After breakfast, we'll take a shared jeep or bus to Ghhandruk. We can appreciate the scenery of the hills and little waterfalls along the way. We'll arrive at Ghandruk village after a two-hour drive. To go to our hotel or homestay, we'll stroll through Ghandruk village. We will spend the night in Ghandruk, experiencing their culture and old monuments, as well as visiting their museum. We will also get the opportunity to experience their cultural dance and music in the evening.

After breakfast, we'll head to "Pothana," our next stop. The first hour of walking is entirely downhill, and then we head uphill to the large and gorgeous Landruk settlement, which is twice as magnificent as Ghandruk. After stopping for lunch at Landruk, we might hike for an additional hour or two to reach Pothana.

The path leads  through a paddy field and then  trail leads through forests of rhododendron, magnolia, oak, sandalwood, and pine. Australians came and fixed their tents at this place on 1960th  that’s why they call this spot Australian camp, we may have our lunch here and  continue trekking down to  Dhampus Phedi that a low us to explore Dhampus village and beautiful farming terraces.We will have a short 40 minutes drive  from Dhampus Phedi to Pokhara by private taxi.
