The Yoga and Trekking Program combines two of Nepal's most distinct traditions. Introducing Yoga into the Trekking experience allows for a richer appreciation of the physical and mental landscape as the body and mind are opened through daily Meditation, Yoga, Stretching, Massage, and Trekking. The combination of these elements creates a more fulfilling physical exercise while strengthening and opening the mind for greater relaxation and awareness all within the beautiful natural environment provided by the Himalayas. The program is open for all experience levels and ages and is a unique opportunity for those interested in the strengthening of both the body and mind.

Group Photo and Mountain in the BackdropWe will start trekking from Naya Pull after a 1 hour drive with a private vehicle from Pokhara. After 15 minutes short walk along the bank of the Modi Khola, we reach Birethanti (1.015 meters) a large village that has many shops and teahouses. 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 1495m and after the short climb, we reach Tikhedhunga at 1570 meters. Today`s walk offers a short and relatively easy day, during the journey which allows us to become used to the experience of trekking in Nepal.
Leaving Tikhedunga, we begin our journey with a steep climb to Ulleri. Ulleri is a large Magar village at 2070 meters. The trail then continues to ascend more gently, through fine forests of oak and rhododendrons towards Banthanti at 2.250 meters. Then we trek towards Nangethanti at 2460m. After another hour of walking we will finally reach Ghorepani at 2.900 meters.
Sunset in the back of MachhapuchhureToday, very early in the morning, we start an hour hiking to Poon Hill at elevation of 3210 meter, 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.
The trails drops down from Tadapani through dense rhododendron forest till Chiule where a few lodges are located. A maze of small paths leads down through the terraced fields to a big suspension bridge over the Kimrong Khola. From the bridge, the trail climbs past the school and along terraces to the little village of Klisigo Chiukle. After a series of waterfalls, the trail climbs and contours along the terraces to join the main Ghandrung-Chomrong route, from where we make our way to Chomrong for the night.
After a steep descend from Chomrong followed by a demanding climb to Sinuwa we continue up through the forests passing the small villages of Bamboo and Doban till we finally reach Himalayan Hotel.
Hiking at ABC BasecampFrom the few lodges at Himalaya Hotel (2850m) we climb further up past Hinku Cave, where the first expeditions to the base camp used to overnight under the huge rock. From here we will also have great views of Machhapuchhure (Fishtail) mountain (6997m) and you will understand why the translation of its name means fishtail mountain.
After crossing a ravine the trail climbs among boulders, finally leaving the trees behind us. The valley broadens out and the scenery becomes wilder as we approach the gates of the sanctuary. Passing between the heights of Hiunchuli and Machhapuchhare, we reach Machhapuchhare Base Camp (3700m) at the entrance to the great amphitheatre, where we spend the night. The views are stupendous, the panorama including Huinchuli, Annapurna 1, Annapurna 3, Gangapurna and Machhapuchhare.
Snow Cover Cravas Verglass SnowfallAfter a very early wake up call slightly climb up for around 2 hours till we reach Annapurna Base Camp. The Base Camp is surrounded by the snow capped peaks of some of the highest mountains in the world. Hiunchuli, Annapurna South, Annapurna 1 and 3, Gangapurna and Machhapuchhhure (Fishtail) all encircle us. The sunset and sunrise are really magnificent in this mountain arena.
From just above Annapurna base camp, overlooking the Annapurna South glacier, the panorama is breathtaking. Annapurna I rears above rubble covered glacier while to the south Hiunchuli and Annapurna South loom behind. Machhapuchhare is magnificent and also Annapurna III can be seen. For a view of Gangapurna you can climb the moraine with a few rock cairns to the south. Once you have soaked up the stunning views of the Annapurna range, breakfast in your lodge at the Annapurna Base Camp and descend all the way back to Sinuwa passing Deurali, Himalayan Hotel, Doban and Bamboo.
When leaving Sinuwa immediately the trail drops steeply to the river from where we have to climb up again till we reach Chomrong.After lunch in Chomrong we descend again steep to the next Place Jhinu Ghandrung (1950m) is a large, prosperous Gurung village and after arrival we have time to explore the maze of narrow alleyways separating the neat slate-roofed houses and watch the sunlight on Macchapuchhare, Annapurna South and Hiunchuli. It's also possible to visit the small but interesting Gurung Museum.
From Ghandrung we descend to Syauli Bazaar. From Syauli Bazaar it is a pleasant easy walk following the river to Birethanti (1040m) where we cross the bridge. A short walk from the village brings us to the road at Naya Pull where we take transport for the 1,5 hour drive into Pokhara.
