Trip Itinerary

Day 1: Arrival in Kathmandu 1,300m

After a breathtaking Himalayan flight to Kathmandu, upon arrival at Tribhuvan International Airport (TIA), you will be warmly greeted by our representative who will also escort you to your Hotel. After check in and refreshment, there will be a briefing session by our tour consultant and the rest of the day is at your leisure to rest or explore the sights of the valley. Overnight at Hotel
Second day is basically a sightseeing and Trek Preparation day. After breakfast, we embark on a guided tour to major historical, cultural and spiritual attractions of the valley which includes World Heritage Sites like the historic Durbar Square, the sacred Hindu temple of Pashupati Nath, the famous 'Monkey Temple' (Swayambunath) and Buddhists shrine (Bouddha Nath) etc. Overnight at Hotel
An early morning we start our journey on the highway that follows the Trisuli River with great scenic view along the way. The road winds and curves through Mugling from where we divert to the Pokhara route to Dumre and head nortwards to Besishar and Khudi where we get our first view of the Manaslu range. Overnight at Tea House You also have the option of walking from Dumre to Khudi on wide trails which will take approximately one hour.
From Chame it’s a hard ascent through a steep and narrow path and dense forest to a dramatically curved rockface, rising a sheer 1500m from the river floor. You will notice the dramatic change in the vegetaion as we walk along the trial. We also cross the river at several points on suspension bridges before the trail finally opens up where we are surrounded by the majestic Himalayan Peaks. Manang is located in a U-shaped valley between two giant snow peaks. We walk through to reach the village of Pisang. Overnight at Tea house
The ninth day is the day of choices! Our trail forks to two divergent paths and we are presented with a choice of taking the upper or lower trail? The upper trail takes us via Geru (recommended) and it's highlight though a little strenuous brings us on level with the Annapurna and Pisang peaks - a view not to miss for. En -route you will also have time to visit the Barge monastery which is Manang's largest monastery. Overnight in Mountain Lodge
Today is a day of rest. Short walks can be taken to explore Bhojo Gompa (monastery) or Gangapurna Lake or a short hike to Vraga village, and its monastery. The Himalayan Rescue Association is also located here and we can get some ideas about Mountain Sickness. Overnight at Manang
After a hearty breakfast we now continue our trek climbing through the village of Tenki and onwards to the Marshyangdi valley to the Jarsang khola. As we climb and gain elevation we can notice the slowly changing vegetation to the dry juniper shrub. Heading northwards the trail follows through a few pastures, scrubs of juniper trees and passes near the small village of Ghunsa, a cluster of flat mud roofs just below the trailhead. We also cross several pastures, a small river over a wooden bridge and an ancient old Mani wall to reach the small village of Yak Kharka. Overnight at the Yak Karka.
As usual after breakfast we begin our climb to reach Thorong Phedi, a small settlement at the base of the Thorong La (High Camp). Here we take our time to get a complete rest for a tough day tomorrow. Some visitors do attempt a hike to the High Camp so that the next day can be easier for them, but we do not recommend this its better to sleep soundly and safely, rather than a risky sleep at higher altitudes. Overnight at Thorong Phedi.
This is the high point of our around Annapurna trek as we cross the famous ' high pass, Thorong La 5416 m. An early start is recommended as we have to hike through the icy high-altitude trail. We reach Muktinath by sunset and are all ready to settle in for the night. Muktinath is an important pilgrimage site for both Hindus and Buddhist. The area hosts a Vishnu temple and a Monastery nearby. Muktinath demonstrates the religious harmony of Nepal. Overnight at Muktinath in Lodge
In the Morning after breakfast, breathe easier from today! we pay a visit to the local shrines of both hindus and Buddhists before starting our trek downhill to the village of Kagbeni and finally to Jomsom. Overnight at Lodge
After breakfast in the morning, we take a 30-minute-long scenic flight to Pokhara, the lake city of Nepal and an essentially touristic tinsel town. We transfer to hotel from the airport. Or Jomsom to Pokhara with beautiful scenic drive. The most famous enchanting tranquil valley offering natural beauty, living culture, deep gorges, emerald lakes, snow clad peaks and picturesque village. Overnight at Hotel
After a leisure and hearty breakfast, you are all set to leave for Kathmandu. The drive (Flight optional) is a scenic drive of around six hours through plains, mid hills, terraced fields. Arrival in Kathmandu meet by our representative and transfer to hotel. Alternatively, you can also explore the sights you have not seen or doing some last minute shopping for handicrafts and souvenirs.
