Detail itinerary

Enjoy panoramic, spectacular views of the valley with the Landruk Trek. The trek usually starts from Ghandruk Village or the River Camp, depending on the option of the tour that’s chosen. This particular trek offers some incredible nature views that will leave an indelible imprint on the heart. The Landruk village itself has farming terraces that will instantly capture your heart.

Dhampus Landruk Village Trek is wonderful rural trekking in Nepal at Annapurna Region preserved as Annapurna Conservation Area. The place serves as one of the main entry points to Annapurna Base Camp and to other trekking trails of Annapurna area which offers the gorgeous view of the Pokhara Valley, surrounding green lush forests hills, mountains and villages.The trip to Dhampus village, one of the paradises of Nepal, begins from Phedi village and head towards the Dhampus village and then Landruk.

On our 3rd day we trek toward Dovan. Chhomrong to Dovan trek distance is 8.6 kilometers / 5.3 miles. From Chhomrong you have to trek for 5 to 7 hours to reach Dovan which is at a height of 2600 m above sea level. Steep decent till Chhomrong khola and steep ascent towards upper Sinuwa is the most difficult part of ABC trek.

On your 4 day, you will trek towards Machapuchhre Base Camp. After lunch, we have another 2 hours and 30 minutes most uphill all the way through the amazing Annapurna Valley as we move to Machhapuchchhre Base Camp at 3,700m/ 12,140 feet. Today is memorable. The trail after Dovan has a small portion that is prone to avalanches. Our precise route, which may include a small detour, will be chosen this morning. After about an hour along a rocky path followed by dense forest, we arrive at Hinko. The trail then follows a path along the bank of a river until Bagal. Continuing, we pass through more rhododendron forest, after which comes the difficult yet exciting section - the hike to the base camp of Machapuchre or Fish Tail peak (which is, however, not an actual base camp since scaling Mt. Machapuchre is forbidden.)

The distance from Machhapuchhre Base Camp to Annapurna Base Camp is 2.9km/ 1.8 miles and should take 2 hours. You will see Hiunchuli, Annapurna South, Barahi Shikhar, Annapurna I, Tent Peak, Singachuli, Glacier Dom, Gangapurna, Annapurna III and Machhapuchhre snow-capped mountains around the Annapurna base camp which makes you worthwhile and happy. After this imaging view, you will trek down to Pokhara via Jhinu Hot Spring.

We follow the same route to get back to Chomrong from Annapurna base camp.

Instead of returning to Pokhara on our outward route, we will take a detour from Chomrong towards Ghandruk. It offers the majestic view of Annapurna mountain and a splendid sunrise and sunset. The Ghandruk trek is most popular for wonderful Gurung culture, the beautiful village, geographical differences and the fantastic views of the mountains of Annapurna (7219 m), Machhapuchhare (6993 m) and Himchuli (6411 m).
