We drive to the trailhead, the route from Kande is a good one and very few trekkers choose to start the trek from here. The trail is good, first slowly up, then a bit steeper to Australian Camp (2060m,around one hour), then after an early lunch slightly downhill to Pothana (1950m) and the ACAP/TIMS checkpoint, then up again to Deurali (2100m).

There is a section just over half way where the trail drops steeply and then slowly gains height and then back onto the ridge and into Forest Camp (2600m) after about 6-7 hours trekking. Overnight stay at Forest Camp.

Day 6
Forest Camp to Low Camp (2970m), 4-5 hrs trek

The trail is initially quite steep leaving Forest Camp but soon gets less steep as we again have to get upon the ridge. Forest Camp to Low Camp is only a short day trekking through more jungle with occasional glimpses of Annapurna South before getting into Low Camp (2970m) after around 3 hours. Overnight stay at Low Camp.

Day 7
Low Camp to High Camp (3540m), 3-4 hrs trek

The trail leaves Low Camp again in jungle, but the trees soon start to get smaller and after about one hour, trekking broke out of the jungle and onto the open ridge with spectacular views of Machhapuchhre ahead and Annapurna South to ours left. The trail then swiftly moves along the ridge and after about 3 hours trekking we arrived at High Camp (3540m). Overnight stay at Lodge.

Day 8
Day trip around Mardi Base Camp (4500m) and back to High Camp

It is possible to continue trekking along the ridge for another 4 to 5 hours to Mardi Himal Base Camp (4500m) and return to High Camp in around 4 hours. This makes a long day but there is also a viewpoint about half way. Overnight stay at Lodge.
