On day four, follow the trail across several streams towards the Machhapuchhare Base Camp, then hike to Ablation Valley.

On day five, hike through the only way out of Annapurna Sanctuary towards Bamboo. Bamboo is 1,600 m lower than Annapurna Base Camp, so you should expect a hard day on your knees.
