Believed to have been created on its own, this Budhhist stupa is the oldest of all the monuments in Kathmandu valley. Standing atop a small hillock, Swoyambunath, known as monkey temple amongst tourists, provides a fascinating view of the valley, surrounding hills and snow-capped mountain at the distance on a clear day.

Patan Durbar Square
One of the three medieval palace squares, Patan Durbar Square holds its medieval art and architectural grandeur. Amazing skill of the artisans is evident in each and every building that stands in the square. The square comprises of medieval palace, temples and museum.

This site is the most sacred Hindu temple area in the country. But, as the temple is strictly a Hindu only area, non-Hindu tourists go there to watch the unique Hindu cremation rituals on the bank of River Bagmati. The death rites of Hindu family there are so engrossing and heart-touching which make you feel the moment. It’s not any kind of intrusion in being there and watching somebody being cremated in an open ground. It’s a great cultural experience.

This giant Buddhist stupa is considered as the biggest one in the world. This small square with giant shrine has a powerful presence of the spiritual vibrations. It’s an important pilgrimage site for the people following Tibetan Buddhism.

We take early morning breakfast and get ready to drive to Pokhara. Situated 200 kilometers west of Kathmandu, Pokhara is a blessed city with beauty of nature and is the gateway to Annapurna region trekking. We drive along the highway that passes through several beautiful towns and runs along the river in most of the parts. The peaceful rural setting of Nepal looks fascinating during the drive. About 7 hours on the road brings us beautiful rural views along the highway before reaching Pokhara. Once we reach Pokhara, we can take leisurely wanderings around the serene lakeside.

We are going to start the first day of the trekking part of our journey. We drive for about one and half hour to Nayapul where the trekking starts from. We are embarking a five hours day walk to Ghandruk. We walk along Modi Khola, a river that comes from the Annapurna sanctuary, to Birethanti where we cross it over a bridge. After checking into the Annapurna Conservation Area Project office for trekking in the region, we head right towards our destination.

About five hours of gentle dirt road walking, including lunch break in between, takes us to the beautiful Gurung settlement of Ghandruk that boasts a spectacular view of the Himalayan peaks.

We are heading deeper towards the Annapurna sanctuary as we head to Chhomrong as our destination for the day. On the very first section of the trek, we descend along the trail before heading on a steep uphill and well paved trail. When we reach Chhomrong, another typical Gurung village along the Annapurna sanctuary trail, we can experience the wonderful village life and culture of the ethnic people.

On the way deeper into the Annapurna Sanctuary, we are trekking to Dobhan today. We descend to Chhomrong Khola in the beginning of the trek and later start trekking uphill towards Sinuwa and continue our walk towards the destination for the day. Once we reach the cool weather of Dobhan, we will have some time to explore around the beautiful and natural surroundings.

On our adventure today, we trek to the base camp of Machhapuchhre also known as Mt. Fishtail. We trek through Bamboo forest and then to Deurali before reaching Machhapuchhre base camp. We can enjoy the beauty of the sanctuary as we head up towards the destination. Once we reach MBC, we can laze around to discover more about the place and acclimatize.

We get ready for the day walk after breakfast and start walking towards Annapurna Base Camp. We reach Machhapuchhre Base Camp and walk even further to Annapurna Base Camp. While at the impressive base camp, we are surrounded by the mighty Himalayan peaks that take our breath away. We enjoy the moment of being at the spectacular place on earth.

Today, we trek towards the Singu Chuli peak. The adventure for the day takes us to the base of Singu Chuli at the elevation of 4,200 meters above sea level. This adventure trek amongst the gigantic mountains gives us a beautiful memory to cherish. We come across so many wonderful things enjoy them before reaching the Singu Chuli base camp to stay overnight.

We stay here at the base camp today to acclimatize and prepare for the big adventure coming to us. We will discuss in details about the climbing adventure on the Singu Chuli that all of us are eagerly waiting. We check all the climbing equipment and also learn how to use those tools. Some lazing around would be highly beneficial in acclimatizing more to the climate in the surrounding.

Our adventure for the day advances up to the high camp. The challenging walk to the high camp exposes us to the beautiful view as we struggle up towards the destination. When we reach the camp and settle, we will have plenty of time to exploit the beauty of the surroundings. Spending more time at this elevation allows us to get used to with the altitude and prepare for the higher climb.

A big day of adventure today, it’s the camp I that we are heading to as our destination for the day. A tough effort to climb to the camp I from high camp exposes us to the thinning air as we go higher. We plod higher on a slow but gradual pace and eventually reach the camp to settle and take rest while acclimatizing.

Early this morning, we are setting our foot up on the trail towards the top of Singu Chuli that stands at the elevation of 6,501 meters above sea level. As we climb higher and day starts breaking, we can enjoy the view of captivating mountains in the surroundings. It is highly technical section of the climb where we need to use all climbing gear to be able to reach the top. We eventually reach the top and spend some marvelous moments to take pictures and enjoy the view. Later, descend all the way back to base camp.

We have a backup day to compensate any possible delay on the trip due to various reasons.

If we use the contingency day in the climbing, we are trekking back to Machhapuchhre base camp today. Trekking all the way back to Machhapuchhre base camp after the climbing adventure is a great relief as we can breathe comparatively more oxygen.

We relish our breakfast amidst the mountains in the Annapurna sanctuary. Later we get ready to trek back to Bamboo. The trek onwards is taking us to lower elevation. We spend the overnight at Bamboo today.

On the trek today, we trek to Jhinu Danda via Chhomrong village. We traverse the same trail as before to Chhomrong and then we stay to the trail that descends to Jhinu Danda. A steep descent takes us to the destination today. Once we check into the lodge, we may like to go for a relaxing natural hot spring bath on the bank of Modi Khola, the glacial river that comes from the Annapurna Sanctuary. About fifteen minutes of walk down to the river bank takes us for a soothing hot spring bath. Later, we return back to the lodges and spend relaxing time.

It’s the final day of walk on this journey. We start the trek and descend steeply to a river to cross it and climb for a bit before beginning on a fairly gentle trail. We walk past New Bridge, Kyumi and eventually reach Birethanti to check out at the Annapurna Conservation Area. We walk further to Nayapul. We get on a vehicle that is there to pick us up and take to Pokhara. After about one and half hour, we will be back at beautiful city civilization of Pokhara.

Early in the morning, after breakfast, we get on the bus to drive back to Kathmandu. About seven hours of overland journey takes us back to Kathmandu.
