Tour Details

Join us on one of the most beautiful and varied trekking tours in the Annapurna area. Green landscapes, lush nature, the huge snow-capped mountains, idyllic locations and as the highlight of the 5416 meter high Thorong La Pass will show you Nepal where it is so wonderful.

The nature of the passport seems almost desert-like when you arrive in the pilgrimage town Muktinath and arrive the following day via Lupra, a place with one of the oldest Gumbas, in Jomsom. Here is another adventure waiting for you to fly between two of the largest mountains.

Itinerary

Day 1Arrival in Kathmandu

Welcome, we look forward to welcome you at the airport and accompany you to your hotel. After first, certainly interesting views of the turbulent city life in Kathmandu, we enjoy some peace in the garden of the hotel. We will introduce you to your guide and final details of your little Annapurna round can be discussed.

Overnight at the hotel (F)

Day 2Drive to Besisahar and trekking to Ngadi (900m)

Before you lace up your hiking boots and venture into the vastness of the Himalayas, you have to drive a few more kilometers for the time being. After breakfast, we drive by car in the direction of the mountains. After about 6 hours we reach Besisahar. The first little adventure is waiting, if it means to drive by local jeep a short distance further to Bhhulebhule. Now it’s finally time. Our Annapurna round starts and the last few meters we walk to Ngadi up the valley along the Marshyangdi river.

Overnight at the lodge (B / L / D) Hiking time approximately: 1 hour

Day 3Trekking to Jagat (1330m)

Through subtropical green landscapes, at the roaring Marshyangdi River, we walk through the valley of the same name. Typically Nepali it goes up and down again and again. That can be pretty sweaty. As a small compensation fantastic views are waiting on the meandering river through the valley.

Overnight at the lodge (B / L / D) Hiking time approximately: 6 hours

Day 4Trekking start to Dharapani (1860m)

Many small chorten (tombs) and waving prayer flags line the path as we penetrate ever deeper into the beautiful valley. Unmistakably, we come in area which is predominantly inhabited by Buddhists. Despite road construction (gravel road), there are many alternatives and some completely redesigned hiking trails, which we use of course.

Overnight at the lodge (B / L / D) Hiking time approximately: 6 hours

Day 5Trekking to Chame (2670m)

Chame is the capital and administrative center of the Manang district. The rather easier day of hiking today usually leads through a magnificent pine forest. We do not have to do without mountain views, because today the Annapurna II and Lamjung Himal are in their full glory.

Overnight at the lodge (B / L / D) Hiking time approximately: 6 hours

Day 6Trekking to Lower Pisang (3190m)

A very nice start to the day. We roam beautiful spruce forests with views to Annapurna. We crack the 3000 meters mark. The cup of tea at the lodge in Lower Pisang will do a good job before we continue to climb a few meters in order to better adjust to the unfamiliar altitude. The small and old Gumba in Upper Pisang is always worth a visit and a worthwhile destination.

Overnight at the lodge (B / L / D) Hiking time approximately: 6 hours

Day 7Trekking to Manang (3545m) via Nawar & Gyaru

There are two routes to Manang. We follow the paths that lead us through Nawar and Gyaru – two ancient, still original Tibetan villages, to Manang. Excellent views of beautiful landscapes and mighty mountains such as Annapurna and Tilicho peaks will impress you. The heights we are coming in are quite noticeable, so we’ll take some breaks. We will also be stopping in Braga, the old town with its Gumba.

Overnight at the lodge (B / L / D) Hiking time approximately: 8 hours

Day 8Acclimatization day in Manang

Good height adjustment is very important to feel good and also to crack the Thorong La. That’s why we do not rest today, but make our way back to the beautiful surroundings. Either we start to a tour to the Gangapurna Glacier with the magical 4000 meters of altitude. Or we can head to Ice Lake at 4,700 meters, with views that are more than spectacular. Together with our guide you can consult the night before which would be the better alternative.

Overnight at the lodge (B / L / D) Hiking time approximately: 8 hours

Day 9Trekking to Yak Kharka (4100m)

Before we hike higher and higher today, we will fortify ourselves with a delicious breakfast. From the upper district Manang you have once again a wide view into the valley. On the way you pass contemplative mountain villages, encased in the gigantic mountain scenery. With views to Manaslu and Peak 29, you fight slowly towards the pass.

Overnight at the lodge (B / L / D) Hiking time approximately: 6 hours

Day 10Trekking to Phedi (4450m) or to the high camp (4900m)

An exhausting day awaits you through the barren but phenomenal high mountain scenery. In Phedi we have a long lunch break, also to breathe and advise. It depends on the situation and physical condition, where you stay overnight. In order not to start too early at night the next morning, it is better to continue to the high camp to spend the night there. Please be aware that in the high season very many trekkers stay there and it can happen that the rooms are not as you were used to. In very extreme cases, a tent must also be considered. These are ready up there. Consult with the guide as you can / should better decide on the situation. But even if “only” is staying in Phedi,

Overnight at the Lodge (B / L / D) Hiking time around: 6 hours Phedi / 8 hours high camp

Day 11Trekking to Muktinath (3800m) via Thorong La (5416m)

Today it gets fierce, because the queen stage over the Thorong La is not without. Although it is still dark, we are leaving for a long day. Step by step we walk over small boulders. In peace and with many drinking breaks, we go up to the pass. Many colorful prayer flags are the unmistakable sign that you made it. The panoramic view of the Himalayas is reward for all efforts. What has been painstakingly walked up in the morning, everything now has to be tackled back down, on the way to a completely different environment of the barren landscape that lies in front of you. Dominated by so far high mountains, you can now see enough of the high mountain plateau Mustangs. A day that is hard to beat in terms of experiences.

Overnight at the lodge (B / L / D) Hiking time approximately: 9 hours

Day 12Trekking to Jomsom (2650m) via Lupra (2800m)

The holy place Muktinath is valid for Hindus and Buddhists as place of pilgrimage. Fire and water are important symbols of both religions. After breakfast, you will have the opportunity to explore the sacred temples. Muktinath is said to be nearly 3000 years old. But then we move on, the last day of our Annapurna trekking. We cross one with breathtaking views of the Dhaulagiri and the Tukuche Peak, pass. Along fields of the small ancient village of Lupra, one of the few villages, with a well-preserved Bon monastery. Very steep it goes down into the Kali Gendaki valley and on to Jomsom.

Info: If you have more time and would like to hike a bit longer, we recommend the big Annapurna round. This leads over the Poon Hill back to Pokhara.

Overnight at the lodge (B / L / D) Hiking time approximately: 6 hours

Day 13Flight or jeep trip to Pokhara

After only 25 minutes flight including fantastic views of Annapurna and Dhaulagiri, you will reach Pokhara. The rest of the day is at your discretion. Relaxing at Fewa Lake with a delicious piece of cake or a visit to SPA’s you have earned after a hard day’s work.
Alternatively, if there are no Jomsom flights due to poor visibility and safety reasons, take the jeep to Pokhara, which would take a longer time.

Info: You are welcome to spend another day in Pokhara. If you are interested, we are happy to put this together.

Overnight at the hotel (F)

Day 14Drive to Kathmandu

By tourist bus we go back to Kathmandu. (Flight is possible for a surcharge). Interesting, if a bit lengthy, is the ride on the bus anyway. Some breaks, even to eat, are inserted. The Nepalese normal daily life practically flies past the bus window, so that one can catch a glimpse or two.

Overnight at the hotel (F)

Day 15Free Day

It is said: Kathmandu is like an open-air museum. That’s true. At almost every corner there are insights into culture and lifestyle. Not only the great and well-known temples and sights are worth to visit. The little “normal” streets and winding streets are worth to look around in Kathmandu. Almost everywhere, life is seething and the city never stops. We are happy to show you as a guided tour (optional) the highlights of the city. They are interested? Then we are happy to show you our Kathmandu.

Day 16Departure

We too are happy to leave Nepal today with a smile, maybe a bit sad, because it’s time to go home. We are happy to accompany you to the airport to say goodbye to you personally and wish you a good flight.
