The walk from Deurali to Machhapuchre base camp passes through rocky hills, crossing some narrow, steep paths that are less tropical and dry.

Due to the risk of having an avalanche in one or two places while trekking to MBC from Deurali, we have an alternative way of crossing the river from the other side to avoid the risk of an avalanche, especially in the spring season. It's a 3-hour gradual climb up to Machhapuchre Base Camp, following the valley of the Modi River with lots of cascades. After reaching Machhapuchre base camp, we will have lunch here, then continue for another 400m climb to reach ABC, our ultimate goal of this trek. Overnight at the guest house
