After a night in Pokhara, we will make our destination to Nayapul and then to Tikhedhunga. In the very first hour of the morning, we will have our breakfast in the Hotel and begin our journey with a drive to reach Nayapul before we start our trek. The drive to Nayapul is around one and half hours through wonderful hill sides of Annapurna district filled with extraordinary views. Taking a private vehicle will most likely be more comfortable in comparison to making a trip in local transport. Once we reach Nayapul, we will begin strolling which we will call trekking later on. The trail begins with simple down and flat before beginning our way to Tikhedhunga. Once we reach Birethanti [1080M/3543FT] the trial will begin moving through typical villages of Annapurna regions known as Matathanti, Ramgai, Sudame, Hille. After walking through these villages we will begin our trek to Tikhedhunga following the thundering Modi River. Trekking to Tikhedhunga is not troublesome and the trail is very simple to walk. The villages we encounter throughout this route are densely settled and we are far from the noisy city and vehicle noises. After a long journey, we will reach Tikhedhunga.
