Day 3 : Tikhedhunga - Trek to Ghorepani 2810 m. (approx. 18 kms/7 hrs)

After a mouth watering mountain breakfast at the tea house, we start trekking for the day. Probably the most difficult day of the trek given that the trail goes only higher in elevation. The first part of the trek is a steep upward walk for about 2 hours and then a gradual upward walk. The walk on the stone paved steps is a daring adventure early in the morning. The whole trail leads you through villages and forests to Ghorepani where your efforts will be rewarded with magnificent close up views of the Himalaya (contingent to clear weather). We will stay the night at a tea house at 2,810 meters.
