From Deurali we make our way to Annapurna Base Camp. Today’s jouney is the most interesting as we will complete our goal of reaching Annapurna Base Camp and also because today’s journey offers the most beautiful landscape view. Almost every second of the journey is picturesque. We will stop at Machhapucchare Base Camp for lunch. Machhapuchhare Base Camp is without the doubt the best lunch stop during the whole trek due the amazing Panoramic view of mountains that can be witnessed from here. From Lunch we will continue our trek and after 2-3 hours of walking we will reach our destination of Annapurna Base Camp. The journey from Machhapuchhare Base Camp to Annapurna Base Camp is the most photogenic part the of the trek. Walking in this trail is a total bliss with amazing 360 degree view of Annapurna Range. During the night in Annapurna Base Camp i would highly recommend to wake up sometime in the middle of the night in order to witness the stars and mountains in the night light. The view is one of the highlight of the trek and a dream landscape of night photography.
Next day we woke up early to go to the edge of Annapurna Base Camp to witness the sunrise. It was definitely a very cool morning but the wait was worth it seeing the morning rays of sun slowly touch the top of Annapurna and slowly come down till the whole mountain is shinning golden. It was a moment to cherish and it makes your whole journey to the base camp worth it. After taking in the view and talking hundreds of pictures we have our break and make our journey back to home. Today’s destination is Chhomrong. This a long downhill trek, which can be challenging for people who have difficulty walking. If you have difficulty walking then you should walk up-to Bamboo. We made our long trek up-to Chhomrong and i can say it was the toughest as walking downhill for a long distance will cause a lot of pain in your legs. Let's just say it took a few days for the pain to go away.
Today our destination will be Pokhara making it the last day of our trek. Even though its the last day of the trek it is still an interesting day as well as we stop in Jhinu. The stop is special is we leave our bags in a lodge and head down 20 mins to the river to be welcomed by natural Hot Spring pool. After walking for the last few days, nothing beats relaxing in the hot springs which naturally heals your body. After relaxing in the hot spring for more than an hour we head back to Jhinu for lunch. Then we continue our journey. Less than an hour walk from Jhinu we reach a Suspension Bridge. We cross many bridges on the trek but the Jhinu bridge is special as it is 278m long, making it one of the longest suspension bridge in Nepal. It is quite fun and thrilling to cross the bridge and watch the river flow around a few hundred meters below it. After crossing the bridge our vehicle was waiting for us that took us to Pokhara. We reached Pokhara around 7-8 pm and headed to Lakeside for dinner and drinks to celebrate the completion of our amazing trek to Annapurna Base Camp.
