From there, the trail continues through the village. The trail follows the north bank of the Bhurungdi Khola. From there, the trail climbs steadily up the side of the valley to Hille at 1.495m and after the short climb, we reach Tikhedhunga at 1.570 meters. Todayís walk offers a short and relatively easy day, during the journey which allows us to become used to the experience of trekking in Nepal.

After another hour of walking we will finally reach Ghorepani at 2.900 meters.

Day 05: Ghorepani - Poon Hill - Tadapani
Today, very early in the morning, we start an hour hiking to Poon Hill at elevation of 3.210 meters, a brilliant spectacle; this vantage point provides a superb view of sunrise over the high Himalayas, including the Annapurnas, Dhaulagiri and Machhapuchhare.

In Poon Hill we will spend about 1 hour, we then return to Ghorepani we take a hot breakfast at the hotel and continue our trek to Tadapani (2.600 meters).

Along the trail towards Tadapani, we make climb along ridges and through pine- and rhododendron forests. Our final destination for today, Tadapani, offers magnificent views of Machhapuchhare and Annapurna South.

Day 06: Tadapani - Ghandrung
