The glorious Annapurna Conservation Area makes the rigorous walks entertaining with a bountiful of sightings of wildlife. From Bamboo, a trail through the bamboo forest leads you to Hinku Cave. Thereon, a slight ascent to Deurali makes way for the climb to the Machhapuchhre Base Camp (3700m). After exploring the base camp vicinity, you proceed towards the Annapurna Base Camp (4130m).

The base camp is a vintage viewpoint to see the panoramic views of the mountains such as Machhapuchhre (6997m), Gangapurna (7454m), Hiunchuli (6441m), Nilgiri (7061m), and the Annapurna Massif. On the way back, you descend to Jhinu Danda and enjoy the natural hot springs there. This trek can be done at any time of the year but it better to avoid the monsoon season which makes the trail slippery and blocks the mountain views. March – June & Sept-Dec are most suitable as the temperature is moderate and the skies are clear.
