From Dhumpus the trail climbs steadily and gradually to Pothana (1,890m). The gradual uphill walk is about 2 hours. Lunch stop at at Pothana. Instead of taking the main trail to Ghandrung (1,951m), one of the best-known villages in the foothill of Annapurna, situated above Modi Khola (river) we take the trail to Australian Camp (2,232m); it is a well known name and has vantage point to see the Himalaya range all around. The trail from Pothana turns southwest to Khare (1,524m) and Naundanda (1,457m). In the beginning make a gradual uphill ascend for about 45 minutes. After spending sometime at the vantage point we continue to descend the trail to Khara (1,457m); it should take about one hour easy downhill walk. Overnight lodge Australian camp.
