Our representatives will be welcoming you with their warm greetings on the airport and will transfer you to the desired hotel in Kathmandu. You will be having plenty of rest on this day as well as will be preparing for tomorrow’s journey onwards.

We will be taking an early drive from Kathmadnu to Khudi [850 meters] which is the starting point of our trek. After reaching the beautiful city of Besisahar [823 meters], we will be heading towards Khudi which will take us approximately 30 minutes. On the drive of approximately 8 hours; we will be observing a range of mountain peaks but from a bit far which will be coming closer in further days. We will have our overnight stay at a Guest house in Khudi.

The 2200 meters Sirung is reachable after a hike of 5 to 6 hours. We will be crossing a few suspension bridges, waterfalls as well the mountain’s views will be more detailed as we come closer to Manasalu then before. We will be enjoying home stay at Sirung which is a settlement of Tamang people. Views of Nadi Chuli and Manasalu can be observed from Sirung as well as we will be enjoying the cultural programs offered by local people here at Sirung.

The trail leading all the way through the bank of Marshyangdi River will lead us to a stone village of Jagat where we will be having lunch and will trek up to Chamje for overnight stay. Today’s walk will be for about 4 to 5 hours and we will reach the maximum altitude at Chamje at 1425 meters where we could also enjoy the spectacular waterfall.

We will again be hiking following the Marshyangdi River to Tal (16750) meters where a large waterfall can be observed in a small village as we enter the Manang District. Today’s day is spent on crossing a flat valley as well as climbing a stone stairway up to 1860 meters before we reach our resting point at Dharapani 1930 meters after a walk of 5 to 6 hours. We will be staying at a tea house in Dharapani.

Today our destination is Chame (2660 meters) and also headquarter for Manang District. We will continue our journey through the Tamang village at 2360 meters to the fine pine forest all the way to Chame at 2660 meters. We will be observing the miraculous views of Annapurna II and Lamjung Himal from Chame. We will be exploring the market as well as taking a natural hot spring bath in the evening and have our overnight stay at a tea house.

On this day we are crossing the Marshyangdi River and continue our trek through beautiful pine and spruce forest and finally, the trek will end at Pisang a village at 3185 meters of height. We will stay overnight at a tea house in Pisang after a 4 to 5 hours of walk. We will be observing the views of Mt. Annapurna all the way on our trekking.

Actually, there are two routes from Pisang to Manang (3480m) but you can choose anyone of them because both are similar in providing you the best views. We will be moving from the lower route as other route is called upper route; which will take us to Hume and Braga village where there is a 600 years old monastery, as well as Tibetan styled houses, can be seen here. We will be reaching the Beautiful village of Manang after our 4 to 5 hours walk from Pisang where we will have our overnight stay at a tea house.

We will be spending one more day strolling around the village of Manang and interacting with the local peoples. Staying one more day will help us adjust our body to the altitude. The excellent views seen from here of Annapurna Mountains as well as Gangapurna Lake will certainly make you excited. We will stay overnight at a tea house in Manang.

After the wonderful time in Manang Village, the trek starts an ascent of almost 2000m to the Throng La. from  Manang the trail crosses a stream and Mane stone before the Tenki Manang. The trek continues through the small village of Gunsang where you can take the short break for tea/coffee. Today you will stop Yak Kharka, also known as Kochi, from where it will take another 01 hrs to Churilattar. Stay overnight at the tea house.

After breakfast in the teahouse, the trek starts with few slowly up and downs until crosses the stream on a wooden bridge at 4310 meters. After making a short ascent on a good trail to a teashop, the route then follows a narrow path across a high, unstable slope before heading to Thorong Phedi (foot of the hill). If you feel fine today you can make all the way to Thorang High Camp, if you do it today it will be easier for tomorrow. Stay overnight at the tea house.

Crossing the arduous Thorong La Pass at a dizzying height of 5,416m/17,764ft is another highlight of this trek. An early start is important to go through the icy high-altitude trail. But the picturesque mountain vistas are more than compensates the strenuous walk through the grueling trail. We reach Muktinath by sunset which is an important pilgrimage site for both Hindus and Buddhist. We can stroll around the area which hosts a Vishnu temple and a Monastery nearby.

It is an easy walk to the routes of Jomsom, although it becomes tedious if there is a strong wind. The trail descends very fast to the Eklai Bhatti than along the Kali Gandaki to the Jomsom. Jomsom is the administrative headquarters of Mustang district. After afternoon you will have the chance to visit Mustang Eco Museum. Stay overnight at the tea house.
