Day 02:: Sightseeing tour of Kathmandu & trek preparation day

Let us introduce you Kathmandu Valley in Brief. You will be taken to Kathmandu's most beautiful locales where culture history and the heritage of the ancient town spills in every corner. Explore the biggest hub of Hinduism in Nepal Pashupatinath where travellers get to experience the important aspects of the religion. Stroll around Boudhanath, a large dome shaped stupa where Tibetan culture and Buddhism are seen at its best. Exploration of Kathmandu Durbar Square is an awesome experience as it takes you to Nepal’s one of the oldest architectural landmarks where local Newari culture also has been prospering for ages.

After spending hours observing these wonderful sites, we meet for a few hours to finalize your clothing and trekking gears that are required during the trek.

Meals: Breakfast

Day 03:: Drive to Pokhara 200km 7-8 hrs drive

Today, we drive 200 km along the snaky Prithwi Highway to Pokhara. The highway that most of the times runs above Himalayan Rivers offers an adventurous drive. Moreover, the local lifestyles in frequent highway towns and lush vegetation are interesting aspects to observe during the drive. Once, we reach Pokhara we check into our Hotel in Lakeside and set out to explore the tourist hub in town. Pokhara is the city decorated with lakes and panoramic Himalayan views. It is also the biggest adventurous hub of the country. The city is famous amongst trekkers because it is the starting point for Annapurna Region Treks. 

Day 04:: Drive to Nayapul 1hr drive and trek to Thirkhedunga 1540m/5052ft

Early morning we begin the journey. An hour long drive along narrow and twisted Baglung Highway brings us to Nayapul. We begin our trek from Nayapul. After an hour walk we come to Birethanti, the popular and the first entrance to Annapurna Conservation Area Project. Then, gradually walking along gentle ups and downs and sometimes on the flat trail, we arrive to Hille. It is a couple of hours trek to Hille. Finally a gentle push on a short flat trail brings us to Thirkhedunga for the overnight stay. 

Day 05:: Trek to Ghorepani 3194m/10,479ft

Today, the trek really tests your endurance. A long walking day along the steep uphill stony steps to Ulleri would be an effortful hike. Getting up to Ulleri after 3 hours of strenuous walk would be a great relief. We will enjoy the lunch at Ulleri and then continue to trek along the geltle uphill trail and sometimes flat trails brings us to Ghorepani. Ghorepani is small village at the foothill of towering 8000m plus peaks. Ghorepani refers to horse water and hence we see plenty of horses in Ghorepani. Overnight in Ghorepani.

Day 06:: Morning hike to Poonhil 3210m & trek to Tadapani 2706m/8878ft

Today, we wake up before dawn and begin the trek towards Poonhill. An uphill walk before the dawn for 45 minutes brings us to Poonhill right before the sunrise. From Poonhill we shall witness the most beautiful sunrise of our life. The mountains glitter like gold in the beginning and slowly their color changes as the sun goes higher. As the sun sets high enough, the white walls almost 270 degrees sprawl right before our eyes. The view is amazing. Annapurna, Dhaulagiri, Nilgiri, Fishtail, Dhampus and many other Himalayan peaks loom high up in the sky rising from the base at green hills. Enjoy the morning here and trek down back to Ghorepani. Enjoy the breakfast in your teahouse and resume the trek. We trek downhill most of the times and few uphills to Tadapani. The trek to Tadapani is wonderful as it goes through pleasant woodlands most of the times. Plus, it caters magnificent views of Dhaulagiri, Annapurna and Himalayan Nilgiri Ranges with Mt. Fishtail always in between. Overnight in Tadapani.

Day 07:: Trek to Sinuwa 2360m/7742ft

As the trek begins today, we start with the strenuous walk to Chiule. Trekking a bit further we come across a bridge over Tibuje Khola. Crossing the river we arrive to Taulung via Kingtrongkholagaon. Beyond Taulung, steep uphill trail stretches all the way to a beautifully located at the lap of Annapurna South Gurung Village, Chhomrong.  A short push uphill from Chommorong brings us to Sinuwa. Overnight in a local teahouse at Sinuwa.  

Day 08:: Trek to Deurali 3200m/10498ft

Yet another hard trekking day. We trek along the steep uphill trail almost all day. However slight descends and flat trails would act like breather during today's trek. Trek to the abandoned village Khuldighar that most of the times stretches through the dense bamboo woods we arrive to Hinku Cave. A short downhill walk brings us to Dovan and the final section of the walk along the side of Modi River brings us to Deurali. We stay overnight in a local teahouse at Deurali. 

Day 09:: Trek to Annapurna Base Camp 4130m/13549ft

Trekking uphill on a ridge above Modi River we reach to Bagar, where the traces of avalanche moraines can be seen. Continuing to trek uphill from here brings us to Machhapuchhre Base Camp. Welcome to Himalayas. We are very close to towering Himalayan peaks now. The striking views of Mt. Fishtail from Machhapuchhre Base Camp and its closest neighbors including Annapurna South, Annapurna I, Annapurna III, Hiunchuli, Gandharvachuli and Gangapurna among others is the highlight of the day. Slowly we enter the treeless zone as we trek uphill towards Annapurna Base Camp. The course widens as we head west closer to the famous glacial basin, Annapurna Sanctuary. As we arrive Annapurna Sanctuary the view spellbinds you. 360 degree view of sparkling Himalayan peaks that include Annapurna south, Annapurna I, Hiunchuli, Machhapuchhre and many other mountains is simply stunning. Experience the rawest nature here as we stay overnight in a teahouse at Annapurna Base Camp.  

Day 10:: Trek to Dobhan 2600m/8530ft

Enjoy the morning at Annapurna Base Camp as the views from here look even more breathtaking during the sunshine. Then, after the breakfast we trek along the retracing trail to Dobhan for the overnight stay. The trek today is mostly downhill.  

Day 11:: Trek to Jhinudanda 2170m/7119ft.

Continue the trek downhill and arrive to Jhinudanda. Enjoy the bath in natural hotsprings of Jhinudanda and let go all your trek exhaustion. 

Day 12:: Trek to Nayapul and drive back to Pokhara

The last day of the trek is along the downhill trail along the bank of Modi River to Nayapul. From Nayapul, we drive back to Pokhara. Explore around Pokhara and enjoy the evening strolling and partying in Lakeside.

Day 13:: Drive back to Kathmandu

Today we drive back to Kathmandu along Prithiwi Highway. Enjoy the drive. As we arrive to Kathmandu we will check into our hotel in the city. Evening on your own.

Meal: Dinner

Day 14:: Departure Day

Our representative will escort to the airport for the final see off to your onward destination. Have a safe flight and visit Nepal time and again we have much more to show.

  • Climate and weather condition during trek
    Weather in the mountains is extremely unpredictable. The nights are generally cooler and the days are warm. Winter (January and February) will be bit colder but the days can be quite beautiful and warm if the sun is out. There will be bit of snow during the month of January, February and December. It is also important to make sure that you can stay warm and dry in just about any conditions. Expect the unexpected!

    Everest Base Camp trek is likely to have a wide range of temperatures depending on the altitude and the time of day. In the mountains up to 3,500m the nights will be cool, normally around 5 degree C, and during the day temperatures sometimes rise to 25 degree C. At higher altitudes temperatures range from about 20 degree C to -15 degree C.

  • Travel Insurance
    While travelling to Nepal, you are requested to have a travel insurance that should cover any comprehensive expenses possible to acquire due to medical issues or accidents. Especially, your travel insurance must protect air ambulance, treatment charges, rescue and evacuation, product cancellation and refundable charges, flight delay and cancellations. We suggest you to bring you travel insurance certificate or send us scan copy and required to issue from your home land and we do not arrange or sell insurance.

    Travelling in the Himalayas is full of adventurous; hence it is wise to choose a proper insurance policy. While choosing your insurance policy, make sure that it will protect all such unforeseen expenses. Your insurer should be well familiar with our itinerary that you have booked and must have agreed to cover all activities being undertaken during trip.

  • Altitude Mountain sickness
    AMS is the abbreviation for Acute Mountain sickness also termed as the High Altitude Sickness. AMS is one of the challenges that the trekkers/ climbers might face during their climb in the mountains. As you reach higher in the altitude the oxygen level gradually decreases. If a person tries to climb too quickly then there is a higher chance of getting AMS. The major symptoms of AMS is headache, loss of appetite, nausea, vomiting, dizziness, tiredness, difficulty in sleeping. However, AMS can be avoided by using some precautionary measures such as drinking plenty of water, eating enough food and walking in the steady pace. Our experienced guides who have been working in the Himalayas will help and instruct you for further measures.

    Ecstatic Himalaya will provide a well-qualified and experienced guide who has a good knowledge about AMS as they can recognize the early symptoms and advise medications for instant relief. We have designed our trips in such a way that the clients get full acclimatization and proper rest. You will also be provided with a Gamow bag upon request at an additional charge which is considered a major gear to reduce the effect of AMS. In the worst case scenario, we shall arrange a rescue and evacuation using a helicopter whose cost should be covered by your travel insurance.
  •  

  • Acclimatization
    We are experts at operating at high-altitude. Every trip we run has a realistic acclimatization programme. Our treks are designed to allow gradual height gain, spread over a number of days. There is no way of predicting who will suffer from altitude but, for the vast majority of people, a slow ascent to height will produce minimal effects. We can provide 'Gamow Bag' as a precautionary measure as per your request on hiring basis. Acclimatizing takes time and there are no safe shortcuts. All trips to altitudes in excess of 3,000 meters carry medicines essential to the treatment of altitude illness, and our leaders are trained to administer them and to know the symptoms.
  •  

  • Physical Fitness
    We strongly recommend our clients for consulting the doctor before planning your holidays. You should obtain professional advice from a travel clinic or your local GP about which vaccinations to have before you arrive in Nepal. Your doctor will advise current inoculation requirements. If a doctor has recommended against travel or indicated travel may be inconvenient then inform us of the details. On all trekking and exploratory trips technical experience is not required, hiking/camping experience is an advantage, but by far the most important thing is a positive attitude and a generous amount of determination. We strictly maintain hygiene foods on the trek. We carry extensive medical kits and, if the need should ever arise, we are able to evacuate seriously ill group members by helicopter. We run regular first aid courses for our all trekking guides and Sherpa helpers.
