The trail goes up and down several times on the route. One should be prepared for long ups and downs by the stone steps. Lodges are situated rather close to each other, so that you can stop earlier in case of bad weather.

From the ABC you can enjoy the view of the south face of Annapurna I. It was first climbed in 1970 by members of a British expedition. While preparing for the ascent they had ony one photograph of this wall.
Naya Pul - Ghandruk. First few hours from Naya Pul you walk along the road. Then there is a nice trail, that goes up slowly till Syauli Bazar, after which there are stone steps uphill. After the steps there is a gentle walk to Ghandruk.
Ghandruk - Chomrong. At this juncture, we climb up for around an hour up to Kimrong Danda. Next, a steep descent takes us to the Kimrong Khola. After another steep ascent from Kimrong Khola to Chere Danda, we descend for a while, then it’s a gentle walk to Chomrong.
Chomrong - Bamboo. The trail out of Chomrong descends via 2500 stone steps and crosses the Chomrong Kola on a suspension bridge. It is an uphill climb to Sinuwa. Next, an easy downhill trail leads to Bamboo, descending almost till the river Modi Kola.
Bamboo - Deurali. The trail goes through the bamboo forest which is damp and cold, then ascends steadily with fewer steep sections. After reaching Himalaya Hotel the forest opens up. It is a steep climb up to Hinku Cave. From here the trail drops closer to the river before climbing again to Deurali.
Deurali - Machhapuchhre Base Camp - Annapurna Base Camp. The path climbs gently. On the trek from Bagar to Machhapuchhre Base Camp avalanche tracks can make walking less comfortable. From Machhapuchre Base Camp the trail turns from the valley of Modi Kola to the Sanctuary. The vegetation disappears. The path widens. We follow the stream and then climb to a few huts alongside the moraine.
Annapurna Base Camp - Bamboo. There is a viewpoint above ABC on the slopes of the South Annapurna. One can see splendid views from there at the sunrise. Then there is trek downhill to Bamboo by the same route, as the way up.
Bamboo - Jhinu Danda. From Bamboo, it is an uphill trek to Kuldighar followed by a downhill walk to Chhomrong Khola. Then we climb the stone steps to Chhomrong. From Chhomrong there are numerous possibilities for the return to Pokhara. One of them is to descend to Jhinu Danda. The hot springs are just 15-20 minute downhill walk from Jhinu Danda.
