Why you'll love this trip
  • The hills can be steep and the going tough, but the rewards at your destination are well worth the aching legs. Sit back with a cup of tea after a long day and watch the kids play, the sun set and the locals go about their lives.
  • Pokhara must be the most relaxed place in Nepal. Spend a few extra days soaking it up.
  • Gain a fascinating insight into 'real' life in the Gurung villages, where you're unlikely to see other tourists.
  • Watch a magnificent sunrise over the Himalayan massif from Sarangkot.
  • Prepare for some stunning views of the surrounding snowy mountains. Better yet, enjoy these with a local leader and porters who will quickly become firm friends.
  • Stay in local tea houses for a more authentic experience.

Is this trip right for you?
  • This is a join-in trip rather than a scheduled group trip, so if other travellers have booked on the same date you will share included activities but you may also be lucky enough to have the trek to yourself.
  • While no where near as challenging as a multi-day trek at altitude such as Everest Base Camp, you will still need excellent fitness for this trek as you will be trekking on average 5–7 hours a day, with some travellers reporting the final trekking day as the longest and toughest.
  • This trek consists mainly of climbing and descending ancient stone steps. We recommend the use of hiking poles which can be purchased for very little in Pokhara and Kathmandu or alternatively, you can bring your own from home.
  • Take note of the time of year you are trekking to know what to expect weather wise. While June–August is monsoon, weather conditions can be unpredictable at any time of the year including rain and fog which can make views cloudy and the ground muddy.
  • A duffel bag is provided on this trip, along with a porter. Your porter can carry up to 8 kg per traveller. Other luggage can be left in Pokhara.

Important notes

1. This trip starts in Pokhara Day 1 at 9 am and finishes in Pokhara on Day 5 at approx 1 pm.
To enable the trip to depart at 9 am, please meet your leader at Dahlia Boutique Hotel listed in the Essential Trip Information the day prior to departure at 5 pm for a pre-departure meeting.
2. Tourist buses all leave Pokhara by 1 pm, so if you wish to depart on Day 5 for Kathmandu you will need to arrange a flight to Kathmandu on that day.
3. Between June and August, it is monsoon season in Nepal. If you do choose to travel during this time, please note that you will encounter wet conditions, obscured views, and an extra leech or two. During the monsoon, there is a chance that your itinerary may be adjusted pending water levels in rivers. Don't forget to pack rain proof jackets and trousers. Please see alternative monsoon season itinerary in the weather section of these notes.
4. This is a join-in trip, so if other travellers have booked on the same date you will share included activities.
5. The single supplement price does not guarantee you will have a single room on our short break trekking trips in Nepal. While we try our best to secure a single room, due to the nature of trekking during peak seasons, teahouses will not guarantee them.
6. You may be asked to provide TWO passport size photographs for your trekking permit.
7. Please be aware that in the event of an emergency evacuation, Intrepid does not have control over which helicopter service may be used. Some helicopters are not in regular use with Intrepid and have not passed our internal safety auditing.

Our Annapurna Homestay trek was much more than imagined it would be. The mountain scenery and rainforest experiences were spectacular. It was tough in places but worth every bit of it.

We had a faboulous homestay 5 day treck with our guide Jebin and porter Tek. The scenery of the Annapurna ranges was just stunning. We were very well looked after by all our hosts in the homestays and were very impressed by our guide's knowledge of the Nepalese culture and the way we were led through this spectacular corner of Nepal by him. The hiking was sometimes demanding in particular on day 4 but the hike through the rain forest and the mountain vistas incredible. Really, really liked this trip!!

I had the most wonderful experience hiking the Annapurna homestay trek. I was so well looked after by my tour leader and porter, Srishti and Dinesh. Both making sure that my experience was great, from pointing out wildlife and interesting points in nature, to playing cards in the evening, to making sure that every step on the trail was safe. When arriving to the guest houses we were welcomed with a smile and warm hospitality. It was a great adventure and I will be forever greatful of the experience I had! I highly recommend this as an introduction to the mountains of the Himalayan region.
