There are several good hiking in the foothills of Annapurna. Sarangkot (1,500 m) is one of the best places to start a walk. Follow the ridge coming across charming villages, terraced farming and Himalayan view points. A short easy day hike could end at Naudanda after 3 hrs from where you will be picked up. If you are looking for real day's work, 3 more hrs of walk will lead to Australian camp at 2,060 m. Australian camp has few lodges in the forest clearing on the mountain ridge offering awe-inspiring Himalayan view.
The two days hike includes night stay in Australian camp. The place is perched high up on the mountain side overlooking at the Annapurna range. Next day, walk down to the village of Dhampus. Dhampus is another scenic village in the gateway of Annapurna base camp trek. Follow the ridge and climb down to the highway at Banskot.
The three day’s hike follow the ridge to the Gurung village of Aastam. The hilltop resort is another scenic feast in more pristine natural surroundings. On the third day walk down two hrs to meet the highway at Milanchowk and drive back to Pokhara.
