Annapurna circuit trek  ….

this trek takes you through distinct regional scenery of rivers, flora, fauna and above all - mountains.

There are four regions that are passed through on the trek; Lamjung, Manang, Mustang and Myagdi. Lamjung and Myagdi of the lower elevations are both predominantly Hindu and with lush green subtropical valleys with villages and terraced farming.

Manang and Mustang are of the higher elevations and are predominantly Tibetan Buddhist.

The trek goes counter-clockwise reaches its summit in Thorung La (pass) at the height of 5416m, or 17,769 feet. The route goes past the following mountains: Manaslu (an 8,000-plus meter peak), LangtangHimal, Annapurna II and IV, Annapurna III and Gangapurna, and, of course, Annapurna I and Dhaulagiri -- passing through the world's deepest gorge in between those two 8,000-plus meter peaks. Poon Hill, at the end of the trek, affords views of those two mountains, as well as South Annapurna and Macchupucchre, the "Fishtail Mountain."

The trek also goes through Buddhist villages and Hindu holy sites, most notably the village of Muktinath, a holy site for both Buddhists and Hindus, and Braga, one of the oldest monasteries in the region.

From Dharapani to Kagbeni you will be walking the Annapurna section of The Great Himalaya Trail, a long distance trekking route that connects Nepal from East to West.

Day  to Day  Itinerary

Day 01: 28th April 2018:  Arrival in Kathmandu

Upon arriving in Kathmandu (Tribhuvan International Airport), a representative will meet you and help you transfer to your hotel by private bus. Enjoy a free evening to explore Kathmandu and recover from your jet-lag. Meet the our trip leader during a short pre-tour briefing before dinner.

Day 02: 29thApril:  Sightseeing of Kathmandu Valley and preparation for the trip

Travel to Pokhara  proceed to syangje and stay

 

Day 03: 30th April:  Trek from Syange to Dharapani [1,960m/6,430ft]: 7-8 hrs

A leisurely trekking pace takes us into the Manang district with its fields of barley, rice, potato and pine forests. We pass the village of Kodo and will overnight in Dharapani.

 

Day 04:  1st May: Trek from Dharapani to Chame [2,710m/8,891ft]: 5-6 hrs

On the way to Chame we climb a few steep, forested ridges and are treated by some of the most sensational mountain views: LamjungHimal, Annapurna II, and Annapurna IV (7,525m/24,688ft). At our destination a few small hot springs bring relief to our taxed muscles.

 

Day 05: 2nd May: Trek from Chame to Pisang [3,300m/10824ft]: 5-6 hrs

 Today we trek higher along a steep and narrow, densely forest path that leads to a rock face that soars 1500m/4,920 ft above the river. We reach at Pisang finally.

 Day 06: 3rd May: Trek from Upper Pisang to Manang [3,500m/11,482ft]: 6-7 hrs

Out of the two routes to choose, we select the upper one (through Upper Pisang and Geru) where the sceneries are unmatched. Majestic peaks tower all around us are Annapurna, Pisang peak, and several others. As we trek higher the landscape and vegetation change with the colder and dryer environment. It’s not all hard work though, since we will visit the Barge monastery (largest in the district of Manang).

 

Day 07: 4th May:  Trek from Manang: Acclimatization Day

To allow our body chemistry to change, adapt to the lower levels of oxygen at altitude, this will be an acclimatization day. We will take a few short walks to higher ground. Great destinations are the BhojoGompa, Gangapurna Lake, the Himalayan Rescue Association and even the small old, monastery village of Vraga. This day is important since the next two are challenging with a rapid gain in altitude.

 

Day 8: 5th may: Trek from Manag to Yak Kharka ,3,110m/13,484ft]: 3-4 hrs

We climb out of the Marshyangdi Valley toward JarsangKhola and Ghunsa. We pass a few pastures, a patch of juniper trees, and the flat mud roofs. After crossing a small river, we pass an ancient old Mani wall (religious carvings on stone slabs) before entering the small village of Yak Kharka.

Day 9: 6th May:  Trek from Yak Kharka to ThorongPhedi [4,600m/15,092ft]: 3-4 hrs

Thorong Pedi is close to the foot of the pass, Thorong La. This ‘trekker/climber’ village caters to the needs of these adventures souls. Some people hike higher to make the “pass-day” easier and risk contracting Altitude Sickness. We stop here to avoid this and potentially get a better night’s sleep.

 

Day 10: 7thmay : Trek from ThorongPhedi to Muktinath [3,800/12,467ft]: 7-8 hrs

Thorong La (5,416 m/17,769 ft), an unforgettable experience, is clearly the climax of our Annapurna Circuit trek. It is in our grasp today. Yes, we will be huffing and puffing, and at the same time exulting in the experience; our own human performance and the unimaginable majesty of this place that few Westerners see. We reach Muktinath with the setting sun. Muktinath hosts a Vishnu temple and a Buddhist Monastery and is often referred to as an example of the religions harmony in Nepal. 

 

Day 11: 8th May: Trek from Muktinath to Tatopani [1,200m/3937ft]: 6-8 hrs

Today, we drive along a plateau above the Kali Gandaki – world`s deepest gorge. We will be using the local private jeep of bus to Ghasa and then change another vehicle to Tatopani. The road is gravel and unfortunately rough and dusty. At Tatopani another treat awaits us, and everyone is anxious to relax their weary muscles in one of the hot spring pools. 

 

Day 12: 9th May: Trek from Tatopani to Ghorepani [2,850m/9,350ft].: 7-8 hrs

The trek to Ghorepani takes us past the Pun Magar villages of Ghara and Sikha and their terraced farmlands, through Phalate and Chitre, and through beautiful rhododendron, birch, and magnolia stands. The surrounding peaks look wonderful, almost ominous, as they tower above.

 Day 13: 10thmay: Trek from Ghorepani to Poon Hill to Nayapul and then drive to Pokhara. And stay

An early ascent of Poon Hill (3,210m. /10,531ft) takes us to the top to witness a spectacular moment in time:  sunrise over the whole Annapurna and Dhaulagiri massifs. We then return back to our lodge for the breakfast. And then, we trek downhill to Nayapul via Ulleri and Birethanti. We drive to Pokhara from Nayapul, which take approx. an hour and half.
