Trip Overview of Annapurna Panorama Trek

Annapurna Panorama Trek is one of the most beautiful treks passing through the diverse ethnic group’s culture and verity vegetation forest and wildlife. Nepal Annapurna Panorama trek offers a great variety of beautiful landscapes, nature & culture of the central Himalayan. It is short hiking trail that allows fantastic views of Mountain above than 8000m including prominent Mt. Annapurna, Mt. Dhaulagiri and some of the important as Nilgiri, Machhapuchhare and many more green hills. The dense forest of rhododendron hundred’s species of birds, flora, and faunas with deep sub-tropical valleys has brought Annapurna panorama view trek into the glow.

Normally 6 days trip is enough for your Annapurna panorama journey to experience the world of biodiversity and an enchanting thrill in the mystery of distinct culture. The Annapurna Panorama trekking trail takes you through an ever-changing landscape of rice fields, misty forests, and tiny villages. Starting at Dhampus, we encounter sub-tropical heat, pretty villages, neatly terraced rice fields, and colorful Rhododendron forest. The trail goes through the dense rhododendron forest with raging rivers making sound from Dhampus, Pothana to Landruk.

Annapuran skyline trek guarantees you fun, pleasure, and a great insight into the natural panorama of the beautiful Himalayan country, Nepal.  Walking west to Tadapani (2590m) you will come across some of the most incredible rhododendron forests in Nepal, while the enormous Mt. Machhapuchhare (6900m) looms above you.

Annapurna Panorama Skyline Trek

The Annapurna skyline trek  panorama of prominent peaks from the vantage Poon Hill viewpoint [3190m] above Ghorepani is the most spectacular mountain escapes on Earth. The Ghorepani Hill point mesmerizes with a heavenly view of sunrise and golden color views of Annapurna ranges. It provides you nothing than fun, pleasure, and gladness, sipping your cups at local tea shops.

Ghandruk village is an ideal vantage point that offers breathtaking views of   Annapurna, Gangapurna, Machhapuchhare, and Hiunchuli. Very almighty rhododendron forests and fine terraces went passing through our trail to the Chhomrong village. The path emerges in the central Modi Khola valley and reaches Tolkha and continues towards Pothana and finally back to Pokhara.

The whole Annapurna panorama view trek path is so less used and nontouristy that you feel like embarking upon a discovery expedition. The added advantage of the Annapurna panorama trek through Annapurna region is the passage of different villages alongside the route which offers the study of different culture and lifestyle of the ethnics group living in those remote villages of Nepal.

This mind-stimulating skyline trek discloses the secret of this untouched Himalayas. The maximum elevation we reach in this trekking is 2800 m, reaching here will not be that hard. You will also have a chance to have the best view of these mountains Dhaulagiri (8,167 m), Annapurna (8,091 m) Fishtail (6997 m) Annapurna South, Himchuli and another famous mountain in this area.

Detailed Itinerary of Annapurna Panorama Trek

Take 1-hour drive to  Dhampus, Dhampus is a small valley on the top of the ridge, more than 500m above. The area is inhabited by Brahmins, Chhetris and few Gurungs. Crossing the dirt road a couple of times and stone staircases make the trail more adventuring. The spectacular panoramic view of Annapurna Himalayan range makes your overnight camping much greater.

The trail climbs to rhododendron forest and passes to Pothana (1990m). The view of Machhapuchhare (6997m) is excellent from here, except that from this angle it looks more like Matterhorn than a fishtail. The trail emerges in the central Modi Khola valley and reaches Tolkha (1790m).  Beyond this, the path descends gently crossing numerous streams and terraces continuing to Landruk, a beautiful Gurung village which provides an excellent view of the surrounding mountain ranges.

You can see Ghandruk village high above on the opposite side of the river. Take a right path over a wooden bridge and past a hydroelectricity pipe beside a lovely waterfall. Ghandruk is the second largest Gurung village in Nepal. You can explore the maze-like streets of this thriving Gurung settlement.

Today the trekking trail ascends steeply through rhododendron forests from Baise Kharka. You can encounter with monkeys and wide varieties of birds. The left-hand path makes a short, steep ascent among rocks. The trail ascends steeply through the dense moss-covered forest with abundant birdlife to Tadapani which also provides a close-up sunset view. Tadapani means ‘far water’ and the water supply is a long distance below the village.

The trail ascends steeply through dense moss-covered rhododendron forest with a rich birdlife. We pass some small villages and walk alongside the Ghaja Khola. It’s about 7-8 hours work up to Ghorepani.

Rise before dawn the following day to make the early-morning excursion to Poon Hill (3210m), one of the best Himalaya viewpoints in Nepal, provides an unobstructed view of sunrise over the high Himalayas. The spectacular panorama stretches from Dhaulagiri I, Annapurna and Machhapuchhare. Watching the beautiful sunrise is a defining moment with lots of pleasure and tranquility. The trail crosses two sparkling clear streams, a small ridge, and another stream before doing a short climb to Nangathanti (2460m). The unrelenting staircase continues to the large Magar village of Ulleri (2080m). After short hiking, you will arrive at Tikhedunga. We spend the overnight at guest house.

Drop steadily up the side of the valley to reach Hille (1510m) and Sudami. Traverse high above the river on a full stone-paved trail to a large and prosperous town Birethanti (1000m). We continue our walk to Nayapul and catch a private vehicle to get to Pokhara. We spend a beautiful night in Pokhara city. You can have some expedition over city streets.
