ITINERARY

Expand All

This morning we head from Kathmandu to Chame via Besisahar. Along the route you will get glimpses of several snow-capped mountains (Annapurna & Manaslu) as we cross rivers and pass through terraced farmland. We will travel by jeep for around 3 to 4 hours from Besisahar to Chame passing through villages such as: Sange, Bhulbhule, Nagdi, Chamche, Tal, Dharapani, Bagarchhap, Dankya, Timang, Thanchowk, and Koto.

Today we head out on the trail following the Marsyangdi River, with our first stop at Bratang and then on to Chemyau Kharka where there is a memorial to Japanese mountain climber Akira Ochiai. Further on we come to Dhukur Pokhari passing through forests along the way until we arrive at lower Pisang from where we will head to Upper Pisang as a means of acclimatizing. We will then return to Lower Pisang for the night.

Pisang is the start of our trek into the upper Manang region. Today we follow the trail to Braga; a Tibetan village with its distinctive architecture and houses constructed one upon the other. One of Manang’s main features is its Gompa (Buddhist temple), being the largest in the Manang region. Manang is also very popular stopping-off point with trekkers who remain here for a day in order to acclimatize before heading to higher elevations. From Manang we have views of Mt. Chulu and Gangapurna.

This morning we head out on a short 4-hour trek to Ledar and then on to Thorong Phedi. Thorong Phedi is at the base of Thorong Himal. We will either spend the night here or move on to High Camp, depending on the weather conditions. Being at High Camp makes it a little easier to reach Thorong La Pass tomorrow.

Today promises to be full of excitement as we head to one of the world’s highest passes – Thorong La Pass. It is going to be a tough day, firstly because of the altitude and secondly because we have to trek for 4 to 5 hours. On the pass you will have stunning views of many 6000m plus peaks. You will also have awesome views as you gaze down to the Kali Gandaki Valley. We then continue down to Muktinath and is at the beginning quite easy, but does have some undulating part in the middle of the trek. We then head down on a steep descent to Muktinath with views of Mt. Dhaulagiri along the way.

Before heading off to Pokhara we will visit Muktinath Temple, a very sacred temple for Buddhists and Hindus. We will also visit Jwala Mai Sanctuary before heading for Jomson from where we will drive back to Pokhara where our trek ends.

GOOD TO KNOW

Accommodation

You will be accommodated in 3-star hotels in Kathmandu. During the trek, we will be staying at lodges/ teahouses. You may find comfort and better quality teahouses - having attached bathroom at lower levels- until you reach higher elevations, where the accommodation is more basic with bare necessities. 

Meals during the trek

 In Kathmandu, your hotel includes breakfast, whereas all meals (breakfast, lunch, and dinner) will be provided during the trek. A staple food of the Manang & Mustang regions is potatoes, oats, buckwheat, Sherpa stew, and Tibetan bread. Sherpa’s’ started farming potatoes when the first seeds were introduced to the region in the early 90s. There is a limited choice of food at higher elevations and except many potato dishes. Potatoes are high in carbohydrates – an excellent source of energy needed at high altitudes.

Transportation

We use a private car for sightseeing and for the airport to hotel pick and drop off. We use public transportation or local buses during the trek. 

Physical fitness

This can be a challenging trek where you often have to walk 6-7 hours a day. You need past experience of hiking or trekking but if you have done any kind of trekking activities then it is always a plus! We have met people from all walks of life, shapes, and sizes who have completed the trek. The only difficult part is when altitude sickness strikes and the effect that it can have on your body. Before leaving for Nepal it is good if you can prepare yourself physically by increasing your stamina and oxygen intake. 

Remember – The better prepared – the more enjoyable your trek!
