Day 04: Drive: Pokhara
- Nayapul & Trek
to Ghorepani ( 2774m)
The trail ascends a steep stone staircase to Ulleri village then more pleasantly through rhododendron forest. There is a hut with water and a
small camp site about 1 hr. above Ulleri, and further on the stream is followed, providing water for a meal stop. Arrive at the top of the Ghorepani pass and camp there.

Day 06 Tadapani - Chhomrung
Dropping down from Tadapani Ghandgung offers good views of the upper Modi valley. The route starts the
long ascent high above the west bank of the Modi Khola. The village of Chhomrong lies tucked at the very base of Himal
Day 07 Chhomrung - Himalaya Hotel
Proceed to Kuldi Ghar 2 1/2 to 3 hrs. There is a clearing
in the forest a little further on. From there the route goes very steeply down a bank of rock and then levels out, running through thickets of
bamboo at the bottom of the gorge, while we keep to the west side of the river. We pass the pasture of Tomo, and then the very neck of the gorge at
pantheon Barah, where there is a small trail and a shrine. Then the track climbs to Himalaya hotel at the camp site.
Day 08 Annapurna South Base Camp
We continue up the broad grassy path for about 1 and 1/2 hr. and then climb on to the lateral moraine
and down the other side on to the glacier. Walking up the bed of the glacier is safe and quite easy and the British Expedition Base Camp is reached after another 1 and 1/2
hr. Base camp is at 4,237 m. The trip is best done from the lower camp, carrying only lunch, and the best views are probably obtained from the crest of the moraine, which
may have been cut by the glacier flowing down from Himal Chuli to the north.
Day 09: Machhapuchhre Base Camp or
Annapurna south Glacier basin ( 3,858m)
The track remains on the west bank of the Modi, now flowing through a more open valley, and eventually emerges into the Sanctuary.
Straight ahead is the high lateral moraine of the south Annapurna glacier and the Modi follows a deep cliff to the right. This is the site of Machhapuchhre base camp
and one can either camp here or continue northwest, staying above the glacial moraine.

path dropping away towards the river.
