strung out on a ridge, inhabited by the friendly Gurungs. Overnight
Day 07 - Dhampus - Landrung
through forests and villages with the very welcoming tea houses,
this day's trek keeps us on the ridge with fabulous vistas until
Deurali (6,890 ft), the high point of this walk, then descending
to Bheri Kharka - Sheep Pasture, high above the Modi Khola valley
for lunch Not far away lies Landrung where you will spend overnight
Day 08 - Landrung - Chomrung
A grand days walk which takes you into the
Modi Khola valley with views of Annapurna South, Hiunchuli, Gangapurna
and Machapuchhare. The valley you will be trekking through in
the next few days is all visible. First a short descent to the
river then begins the climb of the day. Lunch is at Jhinu, Overnight
at tents. a place which not only welcomes it's weary travelers
with good food but also known it's hot springs.
Day 09 - Chomrung - Dovan
Despite modest linear distance covered the
trail makes a constant switch back through the Modi Khola gorge.
In the initial stage of the walk the route gives the possibility
of views but later as the trail heads among rhododendron and bamboo
forests it gets scarce but here the birds and Languar monkeys
abound. You stop at Bamboo for lunch - a teashop amidst, one can
guess - bamboo. An hour's walk reaches you to Dovan a place with
three teahouses in a narrow, shaded valley.
Day 10 - Dovan - Machapucchare
Base Camp (12,139 ft)
Now as you walk in the deep Modi Khola valley
the trail winds up among bambook thickets and forest to the famous
Hinku cave that once housed a lodge. The cave lies separated from
Deurali, the lunch spot by a stream that flows right off the Hiunchuli
Peak that looms above you. Beyond Deurali the temperature vegetation
quickly transforms into short, stunted Alpine. Lying too close
to Machapuchhare and the surrounding Mountains the views from
Machapuchhare Base Camp may not be up to your expectation. But
to be able to enjoy the next few days. Stay of a night here is
a wise move. Day 11 - Machapucchare Base Camp - Annapurna Base
Camp (13,550 ft) - Dovan
trek to Annapurna Base Camp ascends at a steady gradient, never
very shortly, but the altitude is likely to have a tiring effect.
Do not hurry, but ascend slowly & enjoy the expanding panorama.
It's a clear, well-defined trail and as you gain height the lodge
buildings can be seen ahead. The final rise is the steepest. After
some time at this wonderful vantage point we turn back to retrace
our steps going all the way back to Dovan.
Day 12 - Dovan - Chomrung
Trek up to Chomrung and spend overnight there.
Day 13 - Chomrung - Gandrung
This day you descend to Kimrong Khola on
a fairly steep trail through Oak Forest for lunch. Then it's up

large and prosperous village is also the headquarters of the very
successful Annapurna Conservation Area.
