      We begin with a short drive of about an hour to reach Phedi, a small Gurung village. Our adventure starts here with an uphill walk of an hour towards Australian Camp through the rhododendron and oak forests. Locally known as ‘Thulo Kharka’, Australian Camp is a clearing between forests used as a grazing pasture by locals. It has an amazing panoramic view of the whole Annapurna Range.

    • Day 5 : Trek to Forest Camp ‘2550m’

      We start our trek on a route that leads us into a deep forest of complete wilderness surrounded by red rhododendrons all over during spring. Our trail is very quiet until we reach a clearing of the Forest Camp, locally known as Kokar. We can see the views of the Annapurna range including Machapuchhre and Hiuchuli from here.

    • Day 6 : Trek to Low Camp ‘2990m’

      We continue to walk through the dense rhododendron forest as it leads us higher on an uphill path to reach a clearing with fantastic views of surrounding valleys and mountains at a closer range. As we climb you can see the diverse vegetation including mosses, lichen, tree ferns and orchids. Through the woods you can peek at the Hiuchuli, Annapurna South and Machhapuchhre which is now much closer. Far below we can also see the Modi Khola Valley.

    • Day 7 : Trek to High Camp ‘3580m’

      After a short, steep climb the forest starts getting thinner and the ridge becomes grassier with alpine shrubs and rhododendron bushes now showing up along the trail. You find yourself above the clouds, both Annapurna South and Machapuchhre now seeming close enough to touch. If lucky, you might even cross paths with the colorful Daphne pheasant (national bird of Nepal). You can also see the yaks grazing in the pastures and their sheds.
