Itinerary

Upon landing at the Tribhuvan International Airport at Kathmandu, you will be greeted by representative from ‘Tourist Link Treks & Expedition’ who will then convey you through the vibrant streets in Kathmandu to the hotel where you will receive a brief explanation regarding your trekking package. You will spend the night in the comfy bed.

Taking light breakfast early in the morning, our guide will then take you for a pleasant day tour inside Kathmandu which encompasses the UNESCO enlisted holiest shrine of Shiva at Pashupatinath Temple Complex, the Bouddhanath Stupa which is the largest Stupa existing inside Kathmandu, Swayambhunath Temple aka Monkey Temple which is the oldest Stupa inside Kathmandu which dates almost 2oooyrs back and the Kathmandu Durbar Square which is yet another UNESCO enlisted historical site where you will get chance to view the abode of Living Goddess- Kumari, Kasthamandap Temple, Kal Bhairab and many more.

A pleasing drive through the meandering road with fabulous views of rice terraces, looming mountains and rivers will lead us through Mugling to Dumre where we part our ways with Prithvi Highway and head for Besisahar. A mere 30minutes drive from Besisahar will be enough to take us to Khudi.

The sensational trekking experience comes into action once we arrive at Khudi. Crossing the suspension bridge over the river, we will continue uphill through the woods to the small Tamang village of Taranche before following the escalating trail towards Sirung which offers the homestay facility.

Walking past the paddy fields and a few small villages, we will walk along the Marsyangdi River to arrive at Syangje which locates itself at 1100m altitude. Following the steep trail to Jagat located at 1300m altitude, we will continue clambering the trail towards Chamje.

6th day marks the entrance into the Manang Region as we continue walking through corn and barley fields to woods of bamboo and blooming rhododendrons which is famous for several local bird watching. Traversing the woods, we will arrive at the village of Tal from where the trail stretches further to Dharapani.

It takes 6hours of gratifying trekking along the trail that continues upward through the forested ridge to arrive at Chame located at 2710m altitude. En route, we will be blessed with scenic views of magnificent Annapurna II, Annapurna IV, and Lamjung Mountains.

Continuing through the tapered route that makes its way to the deep woods, we will cross the river at several points over suspension bridges to reach the basin which extends further uphill to Pisang located at 3300m altitude where we will be staying overnight.

Chasing the trekking trail that continues through Geru, we will make it to Upper Pisang which serves as the natural vantage point offering close-up views of colossal Annapurna, Pisang, and many more peaks. While at Manang, we will be paying our respect to Barge Monastery which happens to be the largest Monastery in the entire Manang district.

10th day is taken as the acclimatization day which is required to synchronize our bodily functions to the higher altitude of the environment. Since subtle walking is recommended over remaining idle, we will be having a brief exploration of Manang. Bhojo Gompa, Gangapurna Lake, and Vraga Village are some sites that are worth visiting.

Crossing the river, we will chase the raised path all the way to Tenki Village which further passes uphill through Marshyangdi Basin to pastureland. Continuing the easy trail along the way near to Ghunsa Village, we will head through ancient Mani Walls to Yak Kharka located at 4110m altitude.

About 4hours of walking through the bit strenuous trail that passes through the rocky terrain will lead us to the beautiful Village of Thorong Phedi which exists at 4600m altitude height. Staying at the village of Thorong Phedi on this day is advised over climbing to the high camp.

Conquering the Thorong La Pass (5416m) would be the toughest part of the Annapurna Circuit Trek. Ascending up through the ridge with much toil, we will reach the summit which offers kaleidoscopic views of many snow-clad mountains. Devoting some time to admiring the natural vista, we will follow the steep trail downhill to the famous Muktinath temple.

Taking the ritual bath in the taps around Muktinath Temple, we will worship in the Muktinath Temple which is equally venerated among Hindus and Buddhists before lowering down through Ranipauwa Village, Kagbeni, and Jomsom to eventually reach Marpha Village which is famous for its production of apple.

Treading through the pretty settlement at Chokhopani Village, we will walk past the villages of Thakali natives to Kokhethanti. Crossing the river at Kokhethanti, we will chase the trail that prolongs to Kalopani. En route, we will enjoy the natural grandeur of Annapurna I, Dhaulagiri, and the Tukuche Mountains.

Crossing the bridge at Ghasa, we will have a gradual descent through the woods and waterfall from where the trail progresses through Kopchepani, Garpar, Dana, and Narchyang Besi to Tatopani which is a natural hot spring. Taking bath in Tatopani is believed to cure skin ailments.

Progressing through the villages of Ghara and Sikha, the trekking trail rises upward through the forest that is colored in rhododendron and other alpine flowers which further leads us to Ghorepani which is the exquisite village located at 2850m altitude where we will be staying overnight.

We will leave the bed early in the morning along with the wake-up call from the hotel staff and take a hurried trip to the summit of Poonhill where we will be enjoying the mesmerizing sunrise views along with the spectacular vistas of Annapurna and Dhaulagiri Mountains. Returning back to the hotel, we will have a sumptuous breakfast before heading to Taddapani.

Lowering down through the dense woods of blooming rhododendrons, we will walk past the largest settlement of Ghandruk to make it to Nayapul which marks the end of pleasant trekking experience as we take an hour long drive back to Pokhara where we will be staying in the hotel at Lakeside of Pokhara.

5hours of scenic drive through the serpentine roads along Prithvi Highway with exotic views of the Trishuli River, paddy fields, terraces, and hills will lead us back to Kathmandu where we will be staying in a hotel. Dinner will be served in the evening to celebrate the successful ‘Annapurna Circuit Trek.’

The enticing 21days ‘Annapurna Circuit Trek’ comes to an end on this day as you will be transferred back to Tribhuvan International airport by our representative. We are happy to serve you and we will be looking forward to your next visit.
