The walk will be very beautiful and nice. You will see Annapurna ii, Annapurna iv and the Pisang peak during the walk


Trek to Manang where highlander Manangi culture and costume can be viewed with yaks grazing pasture.


The dramatic setting of Manang makes for a pleasant rest and acclimatization day with the added benefit of hot showers. The best way to acclimatize is to do some high climbing then returns to the lower altitude of Manang for sleeping.


Trek on uphill altitude trail to Yak Kharka.The trail goes through the dry terrain. With growing altitude it would be difficult to breathe so we will take slow and steady pace to make it to our destination.

Trek to Phedi. The trail will go through the right side in the beginning until we cross the suspension bridge and the trail goes through the left side of the valley and reaches the throung Phedi 4450m.

.


The most difficult day, but perhaps the highlight of the trek as you crosses the Thorong Pass (5416m). It is a long, tough ascent via a number of small hills, but when you reach the prayer flags at the top you are rewarded with absolutely stunning high Himalaya scenery and over to the Kaligandaki valley through the entire Annapurna range, Mukut and Mustang Himal to the west. It is then a long descent to Muktinath.


Muktinath is a fascinating village; sacred to both Hindus and Buddhists it attracts many pilgrims. Here spring water flows from a rock face via 108 spouts (108 is a sacred number to Buddhists). This water wall surrounds a temple sacred to Vishnu and below the statue runs a trickle of water with pale flames caused by natural gas. There are shrines to Shiva and his consort and Padmasambhava as well as numerous chorten and the surrounding poplar grove supposedly sprang from the staffs of the 84 Siddhas. The mass of Dhaulagiri I make a striking contrast.


The Kali Gandaki is home to Thakalis, Gurungs and Magars. Many of the hills bordering the northern end of the valley are yellowish due to desertification and make a striking contrast to the green farmland of the valley floor. The Thakhali dominated the lucrative trade routes with Tibet and today have turned their entrepreneurial spirit to other businesses, the neglected Buddhist shrines of Tukuche testament to their 19th century conversion to Hinduism in their climb to power. The descent to Tatopani follows the increasingly narrow valley, though one of the world’s deepest river gorges, past the beautiful Rupse Chaharo waterfall, with fantastic views along the way and the lure of hot springs at the end. Take a dip at night with the sound of the river rushing below and starts above.


Trek to Tatopani. Take a warm and cozy bath in hot spring and relax there. Overnight at Tea house.


This day we trek gradually uphill to Ghorepani, is a major stop for trekkers doing all varieties of the Annapurna Circuit, and is always bustling with activity.


Climb up to Poon Hill for an indescribably wonderful panorama of three Himalayan peaks (Dhaulagiri I, Annapurna I, and Manalsu) illuminated by the glowing rays of sunrise. It takes about to Nayapul where our bus will be waiting to take us to Pokhara. Rest and take a well-deserved shower in this lakeside resort town. Pokhara lies on a once vibrant trade route extending between India and Tibet.


We travel back to Kathmandu where the rest of the day is free for shopping, sightseeing or relaxing in one of the many roof top cafés.

Trip Information


Annapurna Region Trek Accommodation

Annapurna Region Trek accommodation will be basic tea houses for boarding/lodging.This is the most popular style of trekking to langtang Valley and simply involves trekking from tea house to tea house. Tea houses are essentially small hotels find in local villages that offer both a place to sleep as well as home cooked meals. Rooms are typically shared with 2 trekkers in a room. Bathrooms are shared as well and in the langtang Trek, the lodges usually have running cold water and western style toilets. Also the hot shower is also available but it need to pay extra cost for it.

In some of the villages on the trek, it may be possible to have a private room with an extra cost and we will do our best to arrange that. However, during busy times of the year there is a limited amount of lodging available in some of the villages so it's generally impossible to arrange private rooms. This is the case even if you're willing to pay extra since the tea house owners will not give out a private room if it means someone else goes without a room.



Annapurna Trek Meals/Food

Trekkers can choose a meal/food from the menus at the tea houses. Typical meals on langtang trek includes omelets, toast, boiled eggs, noodle soup, fried rice, macaroni, mo mo, vegetarian curries, pizza or chow mein. The traditional Nepali Dal Bhat which consists of rice, lentils, and a vegetable is all you can eat and always a good choice. Meat on the mountain is not hygienic and we suggest trekkers stick with vegetarian options.

There is not a problem for vegetarian food and in fact we recommend that everyone stick with a vegetarian diet on the trek as the local meat is not refrigerated properly. If you have special dietary requirements just let us know and we will make sure to assist with the proper menu.
