Overview And Highlights

Annapurna Panorama View Trek is a short and easy trekking package to enjoy the stunning views of Annapurna and the Dhaulagiri range.

Staying at Lodge in peaceful mountain villages and enjoying the panorama of the Annapurna throughout the trail is the major highlight of this trekking.

Annapurna Panorama View Trekking Route

After your arrival at the Kathmandu airport and a direct transfer to your hotel, you’ll be visiting Thamel, a great tourist hub to walk about exploring. Thamel boasts several trekking gear shops, foreign money exchange booths, pubs, clubs, budget hotels, and travel agencies to name a few.

After you test your bargaining skills in Thamel you’ll return back to your hotel. The next day, after traveling for 5-6 hours on a coach, you’ll reach Pokhara. You’ll spend the afternoon in Pokhara, especially Lake Side, which is similar to Thamel, but only cleaner and less crowded.

After spending a night in Pokhara you’ll be taken on a private vehicle to Nayapul. Here you’ll start your trek along a well-trodden trail that passes in and out of terraced rice fields, forests of rhododendron, and several picturesque villages. On the first day of your hike, you’ll be stopping at Ghandruk. Besides excellent mountain scenery, the village of Ghandruk is popular for its hospitable residents, especially the Gurung communities. On the second day of your trek, you’ll cross the Modi river and ascend through a trail that takes you across several paddy fields until you reach the village of Pothana. You’ll be spending the night in Pothana. The next day’s trek will take you to Dhampus and Phedi, from where you’ll be driven back to Pokhara.

Why Choose Annapurna Panorama Trekking?

The Annapurna Panorama Trek is suitable for travelers who want to observe the majestic Annapurna region, but do not have the time or experience for challenging month-long treks.

Besides exceptional scenery, including panoramic views of the Annapurna I and Annapurna South, and a pleasant hiking experience, this trek also gives you insight into the local people’s lives and culture.

The trekking trail is suitable for all ages people. Even a child to old one can easily walk by enjoying the panoramic views of the beautiful landscape and the Himalayan range.

Additional Information

Spring: March-May

The spring season of March/April/May is the best for holidays in the Nepalese Himalayas. The sky and the weather are very clear and sunny in these months and the temperature is warmer. At heights below 3,500 meters, you can expect temperatures of 20 to 25 degrees during the daytime, although these will drop at night. Once above 3,500m, you should expect significant temperature drops at night and early morning, often as low as -15 degrees.

There is some rain in these months, but nothing severe and this really helps to bring out the natural colors in the varied flora and fauna, especially in the national flower of Nepal, the rhododendron.

This is the primary time for tourism in Nepal with trekkers and mountain climbers seen all across the country.

Summer: June – August

Nepal experiences its monsoon season during June, July, and August, and it can sometimes last until mid-September. Some treks are possible in mid-June before the rains really get heavy, however, visibility can be limited.

The rains bring other challenges and obstacles. Mountain flights are not so frequent, while landslides can block the roads. Trekking in mid-June is still possible but we advise against the classic treks such as Everest due to the risk of long delays at Lukla which could potentially lead to missing international flights. If this is the only season possible for you, then we recommend treks in drier parts of the country such as Upper Mustang or Upper Dolpo. We can also suggest other activities such as white water rafting or visiting the National Parks at Chitwan or Bardia.

Autumn: September – November

With very similar conditions to spring, the autumn season begins in mid-September and runs to mid-December, and is also ideal for trekking. This is a long window of good visibility and so there are a wide variety of trekking options available.
This time of year is also known for its festivals, especially the Dashain festival/Tihar festival and Chhad festival. There are also long national holidays so many people return to their villages to see family, making rural Nepal even more vibrant than normal. There is little rain and the skies are mostly clear with warm weather. This does mean that the trekking routes can be quite crowded in the most popular areas so we advise booking early to avoid the disappointment of full tea houses.

The less popular trekking regions such as Manaslu, Tsum Valley, Upper Dolpo, Mustang, and Naar Phu are great alternatives for those who want to avoid the crowds at this busy time.

Winter: December – February

December to February is the winter season in Nepal. Trekking at this time is not ideal and we advise against anything that goes into thin air as snowfall is common and temperatures can be extremely low.

Trips that can be done in winter include trekking in the hills around Kathmandu, Ghorepani, Poon HillNagarkot, Chitwan National ParkBardia National Park, or experiencing a homestay in one of the local villages. The biggest positive of this time of year is the excellent sunsets and sunrises which can often be enjoyed in rural areas.

There is something for everyone at any time of year in Nepal and the team at Peace Nepal Treks is happy to advise the most suitable for your needs.

Below is a checklist of equipment that we advise people have with them when visiting Nepal. This is a guideline only and will depend on the type of trip you are undertaking.

While we always suggest bringing your most important equipment from home, it is possible to buy or rent equipment in Kathmandu where almost all products and major brands are available, often at cheaper rates than you might find at home.

This equipment listed is prepared by our long experiences in trekking. During the treks, our porters can carry approximately 20kg in total while we recommend that any trekker carries their own day-pack that weighs between 8-12kgs which would include a camera, snacks, and drinking water for easy access.

  • Good standard trekking boots
  • Camping shoes/thongs
  • Socks-polypropylene
  • Down Jacket
  • Fleece
  • T-shirts
  • Trekking trousers
  • Shorts (both casual and for treks)
  • Swimwear

Kathmandu, Nepal

Jun 13, 2024

Incredible experience in Nepal! I was part of a group that worked with Nir in November 2016, and he and everyone working at Peace Nepal Treks were incredibly helpful throughout our experience. Nir provided invaluable advice and expertise on our trip, going above and beyond at every opportunity imaginable to make our trip to Nepal the most enjoyable and authentic it could be. Whenever we had an idea or request for an activity, Nir provided us with options and transport to whatever it was we were ... + See more interested in doing (seeing a movie within Kathmandu, doing a hike on the weekend, etc.), which enhanced my experience in Kathmandu. I cannot recommend Peace Nepal Treks enough, they are a fantastic company and very easy to work with! Thank you so much for everything Nir. ... - See less
