Annapurna Panorama View Trekking- 11 Days

Annapurna Panorama View Trek is a short trek with spectacular mountain scenery, sub-tropical rhododendron forests, and wildlife. Machhapuchhare (Fishtail Peak) dominates the skyline during the trek.  Charming villages offer an insight to the culture and lifestyle of the mountain people.

We spend a night before and after the Annapurna Panorama View trek in the quiet lakeside city of Pokhara. The trail begins at Nayapul, 1010m, an hour from Pokhara. After crossing the suspension bridge over the Modi Khola, we start climbing a flagstone path shared with villagers, farm animals and mule trains.

At Ghorepani, 2855m we get our first glimpse of the mountains including Annapurna South and Nilgiri. Early in the morning we set out from Ghorepani for a brisk 1 hour climb to the top of Poon Hill, 3210m, the greatest viewpoint of the Annapurnas. The panoramic view of the sunrise on giants like Dhaulagiri, 8167m, Annapurna, 8091m, Machhapuchhare, Nilgiri, Hiunchuli, and Annapurna South is awe-inspiring, surely to be the highlight of this trek.

The trail from Ghorepani takes us to Ghandruk, 2012m, a traditional hillside village with thatched stone houses of the Gurung tribe, famous for their bravery as Gurkha soldiers. A pleasant path leads over hills and down to streams, through forests and farmlands, to reach Landruk, 1619m, and Pothana, 1990m. Annapurna Panorama View Trek ends at Phedi, from where we travel back to Pokhara by road.

The Best Time of Year for the Annapurna Panorama View Trek

The best seasons for trekking in the Annapurna region are spring (February to late April) and autumn (late September to late November). Winter is also possible, especially for Ghorepani, Annapurna Base Camp, and Kali Gandki Treks. However, the Annapurna circuit is likely to be closed as the higher passes on Dhaulagiri may have too much snow at this time. During winter there are very few tourists. Some people prefer this season, as they enjoy the beauty of the snow, and the environment of the remote areas without the influx of foreigners.

Cultural Aspects of the Annapurna Panorama View Trek
The most prominent ethnic groups in the Annapurna region are the Gurungs, Thakali, and Manangba. The Gurungs are the most widely dispersed, being found from the hills of Gorkha district to as far West as Palpa. The Thakalis come from the upper Kali Gandaki Valley around Jomsom, where their traditional farming has been supplemented by trade, in particular the hotel and restaurant business.

The Annapurna Panorama View Trek is a Tea House Trek

Annapurna Foothills Treks takes great care to arrange the most comfortable accommodation possible throughout your stay. Accommodation is included in the cost of your package.
On the popular trekking routes villagers have built tea house lodges with plenty of character and good food. The simple rooms usually have two narrow beds. When you stay in the tea houses you will have close contact with the Nepalese people and are directly contributing to the local economy.

Our clients enjoy two nights in the Standard Hotel  “Shakti",  in Kathmandu, before heading into the remote regions.  During the trek, five nights will be spent in clean and comfortable tea houses/lodges. And two nights will be enjoying in Standard Hotel Meera or Lake Star in Pokhara, before heading into the remote regions and after returning trip.

Spending Money per Day

Although it depends on your spending habits, you should allocate US$ 10 - 15 per meal in Kathmandu. On the trek, your meals are included, but you may wish to purchase extras which are not included in your package, such as chocolate bars, Coca Cola or a beer. US$10 - 15 a day should be enough, but keep in mind the cost of all items increases proportionately with the distance from the trail head.

Safe Drinking Water on the Annapuran Panorama View Trek

While trekking, it is important to keep hydrated; you should drink at least 3 liters of water each day. In the Annapurna Region there are Euro-guard filters, so all you need is your own water bottle and you can refill it easily.  We suggest you bring a supply of water purification tablets in case Euro-guard water is not available.  We request that you avoid using bottled mineral water, as the bottles are not easily disposed of.

We suggest that you drink boiled water or bring chlorine tablets to purify the normal water available in the guest houses along the way. There is a small fee charged for the boiled water. Several guesthouses have Euro-guard filters. Although mineral water is available in most places, there is no provision to dispose of the plastic bottles, so we encourage the guests to do what they can to protect the environment.

Washing and Toilet Facilities on the Annapurna Panorama View Trek
Most lodges offer hot showers, though sometimes a hot shower means a bucket of hot water. You can ask your trekking guide about the availability. For ecological reasons please try and limit your use of hot water unless the water is solar-heated. Please note that at higher altitude and in colder seasons there is very little chance to have enough hot water for all the trekkers. If the water is frozen then ask your guide to get warm bowl of water. Every lodge will have some kind of hand washing facility but it is good idea to carry a bar of soap with you.

Toilets may be  commode style or Asian squat style and vary in how clean they are. Normally toilets are outside the lodge but now some lodges have attached or indoor toilets. The rubbish bin in the toilet is kept for your used toilet paper.

Re-charging Batteries of Electronic Items on the Annapurna Panorama View Trek
You can recharge your digital camera, iPod, batteries etc. with electricity or solar power sources. You may need to buy an adaptor in Kathmandu before the trip since the plugs in Nepal might be different. The lodges charge a small fee per hour for recharging facilities.
Nepal uses 220-240 volts to power your appliances. The sockets fit both round and flat plugs.

Garbage Disposal
Don’t throw anything into the fire in any house, Buddhist or Hindu. In most cultures the household gods live in fire.

Travel Insurance for the Annapurna Panorama View Trek
Annapurna Foothills Treks and Expeditions strongly recommends you have sufficient insurance coverage to go into this remote area. You need specialized travel insurance that covers emergency evacuation, injury, lost baggage, liability and medical treatment. Make sure the insurance covers all the activities that you will be undertaking during your stay in Nepal. Annapurna Foothills Treks and Expedition Pvt. Ltd. can organize the appropriate medical response based on your policy.
