Day 06: Trek to Low camp (2990m).

We start our day early in the morning having some breakfast and hot drinks. The trail continues through forest, but the route appears firmer than before, trees are smaller, shrubs starts to appear. The change in vegetation gives us feeling like we are gaining altitude and slowly get closer to alpine surroundings. Low camp is famous for epic sunrise views over Macchapuchre and Annapurna Himalayas. It is highly recommended to stop here over overnight to enjoy next morning’s sunrise views. We stay here in tea-house at Low camp.

Day 07: Trek to High Camp (3580m).

The views of snow capped mountains are enormous. Ice might be there at higher altitudes and trail may get slippery during the time.  The majestic view of Machhapuchre on the right and Annapurna base camp on the left remain mesmerising. In this way, after getting closer to Himalayan horizon, we return to high camp for overnight stay. There is also an option to trek down to low camp.
