About six hours of the drive along the highway takes us through beautiful villages, towns, rivers, and other wonderful surroundings. We will reach Pokhara in the afternoon that leaves us enough time to go for a stroll around the Lakeside and enjoy the beauty of Fewa Lake. Pokhara offers a peaceful atmosphere and stunning views of the mountains from the city itself. Exploring around and soaking in the beauty of Pokhara, we will spend quite leisurely time preparing for the trek to start tomorrow.

As it is our first day of the trek, we get ready for the same. We drive for about half an hour to Phedi and start the walking adventure for the day. The very beginning of the trek is an uphill one through lush forest to emerge to a village that leads us to a famous Dhampus village. We will trek even further to Pothana to stay overnight.

Another wonderful day of a nature walk with a spectacular view of the mountains on a clear day, we will trek all the way to the High Camp to stay overnight.

Once we reach the Viewpoint, we can enjoy some breathtaking and unreal views of the mountains in the Annapurna region.
