Day 3: Trek from Chhomrong to Deurali (3,230m)


You continue your walk from Sinuwa by ascending to Kuldi (2470m). You enter the upper Modi valley from here. Then you make a steep descent on a lengthy stone stairway to reach Bamboo (2310m). To get to Dobhan from Bamboo, you must once more climb continuously through bamboo groves and rhododendron forests.


As you leave Dobhan, you have to cross a stream and a landslide. You come to a little shrine in the forest where locals leave floral and clothing offerings for Baraha, a local deity. You ascend over a cascade over a rock platform before crossing another Shiva temple and arriving at two lodges in a deep gorge with the names Himalaya Hotel on both.


 Day 4: Trek from Deurali to Annapurna Base Camp (4,130m/13,546ft) via Machhapuchhre Base Camp (3,700m/12,136ft)


As the mountains really begin to rise above Deurali, the valley becomes wider and less steep, and you can see the sanctuary's gates. You reach Bagar by following the trail that takes a detour to the east side of the valley and ascends through an interesting mixture of bamboo and birch. From Bagar, you ascend through a sparse birch forest while navigating further avalanche tracks.


Descend to a creek after traversing a moraine. Then you reach Machhapuchhare Base Camp after ascending a stone stairway (3700m). The trail ascends to a few huts where shepherds graze their sheep during the summer from Machhapuchhare Base Camp after following a creek for a short distance. You soon notice the base camp hotels, and then you arrive at Annapurna Base.


Day 5: Descend from Annapurna Base Camp to Bamboo


You get up early today to watch the dawn over Annapurna and the nearby mountains. Retrace your steps back to Bamboo after breakfast, via Machhapuchare Base Camp, Hinko, the Himalaya Hotel, and Dobhan. Even though it takes about 7 hours to walk there, there is no difficulty because it is downhill. In a mountain lodge for the night.


Day 6: Trek from Bamboo to Jhinu Danda (1,760m/5,772ft)


It is an uphill climb from Bamboo to Kuldighar and then a downward stroll to Chhomrong Khola. You then ascend Chhomrong's stone steps. After that, the trail drops to Jhinu Danda. Today you will have the chance to relax in the hot springs, which are just a 15-to-20-minute downhill stroll from Jhinu Danda. In a mountain lodge for the night.
