We depart Kathmandu for the five hour drive to Pokhara, 200 kilometers to the west. As we drive out of the Kathmandu valley we descend to the Trisuli River, which we follow upstream to its junction with the Marsyangdi River. We follow the Marsyandi gently up through heavily terraced fields and small hill towns to the Seti River that takes us directly into Pokhara. Pokhara is tourist's paradise with full of natural as well as cultural heritage sites such as lakes, caves, temples of Buddhist and Hindus along with mountains and usually pleasant weather.

On the way, we see good views of Machhapuchhare (or Fish Tail at 6997m), Hiunchuli (6441m), and Annapurna (7219m) south. Now our trail is quite easier passing through rhododendron and shadowy trees and descends gently up to the final camp we will encounter wildlife along the way including monkeys and various species of birds along the way.

High above the Modi Khola on its west bank, the trail passes through the tiny settlement of Tilicho in forests of bamboo, rhododendron and oak. Climbing further on a rocky trail (beware of the stinging nettles) we reach Sinuwa, at 2350 meters. Afterward we trek through rhododendron forests to Kuldi, at 2520 meters. This was once a British sheep-breeding project; now the stone houses are an ACAP visitor center and check post. In winter, it's common to find snow anywhere from this point on.
