How to reach?

Taking a flight to Pokhara from Kathmandu or taking a drive from Kathmandu to Pokhara via highway are the two ways of reaching Pokhara at first.

Then begins the trek from Hemja Milanchok, a short driving distance from Pokhara, to Anante Thati village. From there pass Ribhan village then ascend forward to Khumai ridge towards the Campsite.

From there hike towards Machhapuchhre Base Camp. On a clear day, the summit of Mt. Macchapuchre will be seen clearly. 360-degree views of Annapurna South, Dhaulagiri, Lamjung near the base camp can be seen from here.
