Annapurna Panorama Trek - 10 Days


This adventure itinerary has been designed to give travelers an insight of Nepal on a tight schedule. We at Earthbound Expeditions hope to confer as much as possible of the taste of Nepal’s diverse realism in a very short period of time.

We will fly you to Pokhara where your trekking crew will meet you and drive about one and half hour west into the scenic foothills where the majestic mountain peaks in Annapurna range of the Himalaya preside over the traditional villages and terraced hillsides. By the time you reach the starting point of the trek, you will already have a crush on the Himalaya. The relatively gentle trail that we take you to trek on this trip will be at a maximum elevation of 5,900 feet.

After a nice and easy going trekking trip in the serene mountain atmosphere, we lead you back to Pokhara and you will bid farewell to your trekking crew. Next day, a drive of about four hours to Trishuli River places you in the expert hands of our rafting guides who will lead you through a day of Himalayan white water rafting fun. Paddling down the course of raging Himalayan water, you enjoy the moment of being into the water. After finishing the adventurous rafting trip, we will drive you to Chitwan for an amazing wild life experience.

A full day of jungle safari activities in Chitwan will involve you in various activities like an elephant ride, canoe ride, jungle walk, bird watching, cultural show and many other activities. You will have  plenty of time to explore Kathmandu later when you arrive from Chitwan for a bargain shopping and sightseeing on your own.

Annapurna Panorama trip will be an ideal experience for you when you are on a short vacation.

We think you should go for it and you will surely love it.
