The views of panoramic mountains covering green hills and the cocooned valley of Kathmandu will welcome you to the beautiful country of Nepal. After arriving at Tribhuvan International Airport, head on to the terminal after checks from customs. Our representatives from Third Rock Adventures will greet you and drive you to your hotel located in Thamel, about 5 km away from the airport.

You can relax at your hotel for a while then complete any pending documentation work. The tourist hub of Kathmandu, Thamel, has numerous restaurants offering different cuisines, music stores, arts and crafts shops, massage parlors, and much more. So, take a walk in the streets and come back to have a welcome dinner with some authentic Nepali food.

Day 2
Drive from Kathmandu to Pokhara (800m/2,625ft) - 6 to 7 hours (200km) drive

You can get from Kathmandu to Pokhara in two ways; by air or by road. We will be driving there for this tour, as the terrain along the highway is worth enjoying. Pokhara is located in the western hills of Nepal. The drive diverges from Tribhuvan highway to Prithvi highway. Alongside the Trishuli river, the ride follows hills after hills in rounding paths passing Dhading, Manakamana, then following the Seti river to the City of Lakes; Pokhara. If the road condition is nice, then you will reach there in about 6 to 7 hours.

Upon reaching Pokhara, you will be transferred to your hotel located near Lakeside. After the long tour, you can take a rest then, in the evening, head out to the streets. A must-see in the city is the sun setting in Fewa Lake, which is only a short walk from your hotel. Enjoy the vibrant environment with good music and delicious local food.

Day 3
Drive from Pokhara to Hile and Trek to Ulleri (1,970m/6,463ft) - 2 to 3 hours (52km) drive and 3 to 4 hours (4km) trek

Pack up your bags and take a drive to Hile. On the way, you will be passing significant religions and tourist sites. You can take a jeep ride from Pokhara up to Ulleri. However, to enjoy the view and get one with nature, we will take a hike from Hile to Ulleri. As you leave civilization and head on to Ulleri, be prepared for climbing more than a thousand stairs. Along with the locals, you come across donkeys, mules, and horses for whom you have to give way. Nevertheless, the final climb to Ulleri is rewarding.

After being welcomed by the “Welcome to Ulleri” sign, head to your lodge and take a much-needed rest. Sit beside the log burner fire around the dining table while devouring some authentic Nepali staple.

Overnight stay in Ulleri.

Day 4
Trek from Ulleri to Ghorepani (2,874m/9,429ft) - 4 to 5 hours (9km) trek

In the morning, the sky is clogged with wandering clouds and mist. As the sun rises, the sky gives way to spectacular views of panoramic Himchuli and Annapurna South (7,219 m/23,684 ft). After enjoying your breakfast with an idea, carry your bags and leave for the trail to Ghorepani. Taking slow steps, traverse from lodges to lodges on the way. Distant views of Mt. Macchapuchre will come into display. Through the trickling streams, rhododendron-clad forests, Buddhist prayer flags fluttering in the wind, your brief stop will be at Nange Thanti.

After having some lunch, get back onto the forest floor and take your ascent to Ghorepani. The golden arches of the gate greet you with the “Welcome to Ghorepani, Poon Hill” sign. From here on, Mt. Dhaulagiri (8,167 m/26,795 ft), the 7th highest mountain in the world can be seen. Ghorepani village has several lodges and homestays and friendly locals.

Poon Hill Poon Hill - One of the best view point in Nepal

From Ghorepani, the trail will take an ascent to Poon Hill. The amazing views of mountains, hills, and tiny lodges along the route will keep you occupied when the weather is not misty. Walking on the stone steps is certainly an uphill battle. However, it is worth all the effort. As the stone steps end, you ascend on the grassy hill with a peaking tower on top.

The Poon Hill view tower is one of the most popular tourist destinations in Nepal. On a clear day, the clouds are hovering almost parallel to you. The summit of Annapurna South is visible along with Mt. Dhaulagiri, Nilgiri, Gangapurna, Mt. Machhapuchhre, and more. The Poon Hill sign is a popular spot for taking pictures, so make sure you catch up with this trend. You will witness streams of tourists cogging the area most days of the year as it is a relatively easier trek that is not so far away from Pokhara.

After having a much-needed break, you will take a hike to Deurali. There are many uphill and downhill turns. After setting off to the Deurali Pass, running along the ridgeline of the hills, head to the Bamboo and Rhododendron nestled forest. Taking the trail, a little further, you head to Ban Thanthi, giving way to waterfalls. Keep an eye out for the beautiful songbirds of color flying from one tree to the next. Finally, after taking a flight of stairs, you reach Tadapani.

Devour your breakfast with the towering views of gigantic mountains, Himchuli, Annapurna South, and Machhapuchhre. On this day, you will head to the Northeast towards Jhinu Danda hot springs. Passing by logs of Rhododendron trees, green moss, head to a pasture. From there, descend the hill to the village of Ghurnung filled with fields of barley. Crossing the Kadoorie bridge, continue along the Chomrong pass running through a steep hillside. You will eventually reach Taulung, which diverges on the left to the Annapurna Base Camp trail and right on the Jhinu Dada trail.

Passing farmlands without any sign of settlement, take a long walk until finally climbing stone steps to a fleet of lodges and homestays. Upon reaching Jhinu Danda, take out your swimming costume or anything close to that and head on to the Jhinu Danda hot springs. It is a short 15 minutes’ walk along a forest; you have to pay a certain fee then go down to the hot spring for a warm bath. Finally, head back to your lodge and enjoy a warm dinner.

Overnight stay in Jhinu Danda.

Day 7
Trek from Jhinu Danda to Tolka (1,780m/5,576ft) - 5 to 6 hours (9km) trek

Leaving behind the hot springs of Jhinu Danda, you will take the trail that takes you to Tolka. Take a descent alongside the Modi Khola River while taking time for bird watching along the way. There are a few decent lodges along the way where you can make a quick stop to catch your breath if you are tired of walking on the hard stone steps.

Midway through the trail, make a stop at Landruk village for lunch. The ethnic Gurung tribe highly inhabits the little village. You might witness the tribal people wearing their authentic dress and engaging in traditional activities. From there, continue on the trail to the village of Tolka, which is only a short distance from here.

Overnight stay in Tolka. 

Day 8
Trek from Tolka to Australian Camp (2,100m/6,560ft) - 4 to 5 hours (7km) trek

From Deurali, take a gradual descent to Pothana. Then, take a rest while enjoying the high-standing peaks above and the green fields below.

Australian Camp is known best for the panoramic views of the mountain surrounding the hills. The 180-degree unobstructed view of Mt. Manaslu, Mt. Macchapuchre, Lamjung Himal, and Annapurna Massif attracts most tourists all year round. The smoking landscape and the stunning views of Mt. Annapurna South is the reason for the popularity. Enjoy the sunset over the golden mountains.

Overnight stay in Australian Camp.

Day 9
Trek from Australian Camp to Kande, Drive to Pokhara and fly to Kathmandu - 1 hour (3km) trek, 1 hour (20km) drive and 25 minutes flight

To witness the amazing sunrise along the distant mountains, wake up early in the morning. After having breakfast in the warmth of the panoramic mountains, pack up your bags and head on to the southern trail to Kande, which is a short walk. As you descend, the climate gets warmer.

You will witness many lodges in Kande because this is a departure point for many treks in and around Pokhara and Annapurna. From Kande, take a drive back to Pokhara city. Have some lunch in Pokhara before heading on to the airport for a flight back to Kathmandu city. The flight is as amazing as the drive when you arrived.

Best Season for Annapurna Panorama Trek

Annapurna Panorama Trek can be done around the year, but Spring and Autumn seasons are the best time. Spring falls from March to May, and Autumn from Mid-September to November. During these seasons, the temperature varies from 16 to 22 degrees Celsius (61 to 68 degrees Fahrenheit), which is neither too hot nor too cold. Along with the cool climate, the sky is also usually clear, offering panoramic views of Annapurna massif, Dhaulagiri, and surrounding mountains. In addition, spring is when rhododendrons blossom, making the lush forest trails vibrant with colors of red and pink. Most celebrated and significant Nepalese festivals also fall in the Autumn season, of which you can be a part of your travel coincides with the dates, which is an added advantage.

The summer season lasts from June to Mid-September, when there might be showers due to the monsoon's onset, making the trail muddy. Winter from December to February experiences colder temperatures, so you have to carry heavier and warmer clothing. However, tourists also prefer these seasons as they can enjoy a less crowded silent trekking trail.

Annapurna Panorama Trek Difficulty

Annapurna Panorama Trek is an easy trek for all age groups, families, and individuals, whether experienced or amateur trekkers. The trip ranges from 6 to 10 days with an average of 4 to 5 hours trek. Depending upon the route taken, the walking distance covered in this trek is anywhere from 30 km to 50 km. As there are no technical climbs or difficult trails, one would not require high physical fitness, making it a relatively easier trek than others in the Annapurna region.

Altitude Sickness

Altitude sickness is fairly uncommon in the Annapurna Panorama Trek as this is a low altitude trek. In the fringes of Annapurna, the hike reaches a maximum altitude of under 3,500 meters. Altitude sickness occurs beyond the elevation of 3,500 meters. In some cases, the body cannot get accustomed to the decrease in oxygen level and increase in air pressure and shows fatigue, vomiting, headaches, and such symptoms. However, in this trek, it is rare to fall victim to altitude sickness.

Permits and Entry Fee

Annapurna Panorama Trek falls under the Annapurna Conservation Area Project (ACAP), a protected area. Hence, the following are the two permits required for this trek.

  • ACAP Permit: Fee for foreigners is 3000 NPR (Approx. USD 30), Fee for SAARC Nationals is 200 NPR
  • TIMS Permit: Fee for all 1000 NPR (Approx. USD 10)

These permits can be collected from the Nepal Tourism Board Office in Kathmandu on all days of the week between 9:00 AM to 16:00 PM (NT). Alternatively, you can get the permits from TAAN Office based in Santi Patan, Pokhara. Children below ten years old don't require these permits.

Meals and Accommodation

Annapurna Panorama is a teahouse trek where the lodges/teahouses along the trail offer decent meals and accommodation. The basic facilities include a comfortable bed, room with minimal furniture, warm blankets, a communal bathroom with a paid hot shower, and communal squat toilets.

Family members run the lodges, so Nepalese staple food, Dal (lentil soup) and Bhat (steamed rice), are particularly famous. However, you will find a small range of western cuisine as well. In the popular routes of the Annapurna region, the teahouses offer better benefits than those situated on the new trails.


As the Annapurna Panorama is a popular trek in the lower altitude of the Annapurna region, an internet facility is available on the trail. Wifi facility is available in major tourist stops like Ghorepani, Ghandruk, Tadapani, Kimchi, Ulleri, and more. Furthermore, to enjoy high-speed internet, you can also purchase a local GSM-operated SIM card with a mobile internet data pack from Kathmandu or Pokhara.

In the trekking trail amidst the forests, however, the internet is not easily available due to connectivity issues.

Packing checklist

Your packing checklist for Annapurna Panorama Trek should generally include the very basic gears as this is a low altitude, easy, and relatively short trek. Carrying warm clothing from head to foot, comfortable trekking shoes, sturdy walking poles, and toiletries is essential for the tour, while the rest depends on you.

However, the list can also vary depending upon the season of travel. During the autumn and spring season, you can carry the basic gears; summer or monsoon requires rainproof gears, while the winter season requires warmer clothing.

For an in-depth detail of the packing checklist, please check out our Packing for trekking in Nepal blog.

Best trek with Third rock

I knew Third Rock and Naba from my uncle in California. He recommended Naba to me when I asked him about Nepal and trek adventure. I talked with him personally on phone and booked easily. He was genuine and welcoming. We had a perfect scheme that best fits my interest and he would also let me customize the overall plan and itinerary. I also checked his team profile and it was evident that they were professional. Naba welcomed me in one of his hotel and we had dal bhat with him. Such a great welcome and touch for clients. We dont have much to say about the adventure as wel loved it with our whole heart. The mountains of Annapurna region are magical and Pokhara is a great city for tourists. Naba also recommended us short hike to Champadevi when returned to Kathmandu.

10 DAY Annapunra Trek

Recently had a perfect holiday in Nepal. We traveled to Nepal and trekked to Poon Hill and reached Pokhara via Australian Camp. I did a week of research before booking with Naba's company. We talked with more than 10 companies in Nepal and finally chose Naba's company. There were emails luring us to book with them but it was upto us and choose THird Rock because they had great reviews, and recommendation. The main head Naba personally called us and we had good conversation. Our leader for the trek was Dol who was equally professional as Naba and the porters were hardworking. They were superhero for the adventure to Poon Hill top. The food were great, rooms were cozy. Some part of the trail was muddy and slippery. When we reached poon hill there were more than 20 other travelers ready to embrace the sunrise view. We had the best view that day. We descended to Pokhara from Jhinu Danda and Australian Camp. It was scenic trail. We truly enjoyed 10 days with Third Rock Adventure and we are grateful to them for the amazing service.

Annapurna Poon Hill Trek

The trek was amazing. Poon Hill and australian camp were the two best stopping points along the route. Rishi was the guide for this adventure and though he looked unfit, but he was the fastest among us and with full of energy. He was kind and always ready to help us for anything. He knew all the stuff and served us with great deal of enthusiasm. We had the best sunrise view from top of Poon Hill. And also we had great refreshjment in Pokhara.

Panorama Trek

It's a great trek, specially for familes with kid. We did it with our 5 years old and 9 years old sons. The trek is great for the reason that it's not that overcrowded. We hired Shiva for this trek from Third Rock. Naba organized eveything with perfect plan and operation. When we wanted to live extraday in Ghorepani, Shiva immediately tweaked the itinerary and added. We also spent extra day in Pokhara. It was amazing place.

Our trek was fantastic! We selected a 10 days Annapurna Panorama Trek. Babu was our guide, a professional and very responsible team player for adventure. He met us at the airport and all went perfectly from start to finish. We felt safe and well cared for when we were in Nepal. My husband and I (mid 50’s) did the trek and it proved to be one of the best adventures of our life. We are so glad we did it and want to thank Babu and Team for their excellent service and care. We enthusiastically recommend Third Rock Adventures.

Great Trip

Had a wonderful time and memorable experiences with Third Rock Adventures. Fantastic scenery and breathtaking mountains; Poon Hill was breathtaking. I enjoyed sunrise view from this viewpoint. Rishi organised everything perfectly - it couldn’t have been better. He was very attentive and quick to everything. Also helped me out making sure I had the right gear. The local people were so kind, greeted me Namaste, throughout the trail. A special thanks to my Naba. In addition to the trek when I fell ill in Kathmandu, the company was there ready to assist with anything I needed. We really felt looked after and cared for and had a great time despite the illness. I really enjoyed the welcoming dinner & Farewell dinner with the team in Thamel. Had an unforgettable time in Nepal.Thanks again

Great Annapurna Panorama Trek

Leena did an excellent job of understanding my requirements and tailoring a trip to my exact needs. She was very responsive in her communications and ensured that each aspect of the trip was handled smoothly. The logistics of the trip were handled flawlessly. My guides were wonderful. I appreciated the personal touches; guiding me through receiving a Hindu blessing and buying me the best frozen yogurt in Kathmandu. My trekking guide was very attentive and made sure I was safe and comfortable.The accommodations exceeded my expectations. The meals and service were excellent. The staff were consistently warm and accommodating. It was clear that everyone wanted to ensure I had an excellent experience. The trek was perfect for my needs. It was just challenging enough to make me feel a sense of accomplishment when we reached each destination, specially Poon Hill.

Fine Trek in Nepal

We booked our Annapurna Panorama Trek in a hurry. We were planning to go somewhere else but later decided to explore the mountain above Pokhara. Last time we visited Pokhara, it had us promise for next visit again. From the get to go, they were so attentive. Since we were booking in a hurry, they were swift to respond to our queries in detail. And when it was time for our trek, we were warmly welcomed by our guide Babu at the airport. Our second day of the journey started with a scenic ride to Pokhara, our fav town in Nepal. We never got to do thorough research about the trek, but our guide precisely provided every tiny detail about the place, its people, and the majestic mountains. We had only mountains to look forward to, but the journey was much more than the mountains. The people, small villages we bypass, and the naked mountains that accompany you were some of the best parts of the trek. Although we were both physically fit couples, we had never walked at such an altitude. Babu kept up with our walking pace, never rushed. We were deeply impressed with how he led our trek. From our safety to our comfort, everything was taken care of. And we are forever fortunate we decided to plan our vacation with Third Rock Adventures.

Best Adventure with James

James insisted we do easy trek and upon asking to the consultant at Third Rock Adventures, she recommended this trek as a new and best trek as per our request. It was one of the most beautiful trekking journeys because we believe the Annapurna region of Nepal is one of the most beautiful regions out there. Hiking to Ghorepani and then to Poon Hill, both of these destinations offered us breathtaking views of the mountains. The accommodations that we stayed at were excellent and we absolutely loved Nepal’s hospitality. Especially in the more isolated villages and far-off settlements, the people were extremely friendly and welcomed us like one of their own. The whole experience was extraordinary and utterly beautiful and amazing. Special thanks to Leena for recommending this trek.

Amazing Annapurna Panorama Trek

My wife and I visited Poon Hill and Australian Camp above Pokhara. We had a wonderful experience trekking in Nepal. As soon as we landed in TIA, we were welcomed by our friendly guide Babu. He was very easy and responsive to work with. He explained all the queries we had and gave a brief description of the tour before we head to the mountain. And to be honest, we found everything beyond our expectations. The hills, mountains, and Kathmandu, specially Pokhara is great place to visit. The team made our trek more enjoyable. While writing this, it reminded me of the days we had on the trails. Thank You again for the wonderful experience. We will definitely love to do trek again, probably Mardi Himal Trek.
