Next Day they prepared for the trek and on October 18, they set off towards their destination with their trekking guides. The first stoppage for the night was at Ghandruk.  Grandruk is the popular stoppage for the trekkers around the Annapurna region with easy trials and the several accommodation possibilities. The next day the team headed towards Tadapani 2630m. During the open skies the view of Annapurna ranges and the Fishtail is amazing from this point. On the third day of the trek Mr. Farrukh and Mr. Saleem trekked all the way to Ghorepani. Ghorepani lies within the Annapurna Conservation area and it is the major trial linking many other villages and the Annapurna Base Camp. On the fourth day of the trek from Ghorepani to Poonhill, the team enjoyed the spectacular views of the beautiful villages specially inhabited by the Gurungs and Magars, Himalaya ranges, dense rhododendron forests and deep sub-tropical valleys. The mountains views during the sunrise and sunset from Poonhill have no match. On the last day the crew trekked down to Nayapul and then was escorted to their hotel Temple Tree in Pokhara. On October 23, they flew back to Kathmandu to enjoy their couple of free days at Kathmandu. On October 25, they flew back home from TIA.

Happy Explorers

The itinerary was nice, in that we got to see and experience many different types of climate during the trek, i.e., rainforests to mountain passes to villages.
