Day 1 Drive to Beshishar (923m) and trek to Bulbule. 7 hours Guest house

From Kathmandu, we start early for our drive to Besishar. The road up to Besisahar is quite good, but from there on we walk 2 hour to reach Bulbule. Once we reach there, we freshen up and spend the night there.

Day 2 Trek to Chamje (1410m). 7 hours Guest house

On the first day of the trek, we cross through various suspension bridges, waterfalls and continue past rice paddies and forests. Once we reach the cliff in Jagat, we can view the Marsyangdi Khola below and rocky hills all around. The bee hives at the top of the cliffs is an attraction of the day’s trip. In a short while we reach Chamje where we spend the night.

Day 3 Trek to Bagarchhap (2160m). 6 hours Eco lodge

As we move past narrow and steep valleys, among rhododendron, pine and bamboo forests, in the rocky folds of a mountain, we come across a bridge that takes us to a quick ascent and finally atop a climb to reveal a widening valley. After reaching the village of Tal, we have to move across barley, wheat and potato farms for a while to reach Dharapani. From there we turn west through the fir and pine forests to reach Bagarchhap.

Day 4 Trek to Chame (2710m). 6 hours Guest house

From Bagarchhap we start ahead to reach a Danaque village and then a steep climb to reach a Tamang village with exquisite views of Manaslu, Lamjung , Annapurna and other mountain beauties. As we trek through a Tibetan village that acts as a transition between the lowlands and high hills, we follow a gradual flat path to Thanchowk, Kolo and finally to Chame.

Day 5 Trek to Pisang (3240m). 5 hours Guest house

We first pass through the older part of Chame, climb up to Telekhu and continue on a long, leveled path through forests to Brathang. The trails rounds a bend and once we continue ahead we need to cross back to the south bank of Marsyangdi River on a suspension bridge. Then the trail forms a gentle climb over a pine forested ridge and then levels again as we move from the upper part of Manang valley to Pisang.

Day 6 Trek to Manang (3540m). 5 hours Guest house

The town of Pisang is the beginning of the upper region of the Manang district. On this day, the trek climbs to Braga, a Tibetan styled village. The houses here are stacked upon each other forming verandas with each other rooftops. The main attraction is the Gompa, the largest in the district, with a vast array of statues in display and perched on a high crag with the view of the entire village. After a while we reach Manang, where we refresh and spend the night.

Day 7 Acclimatization day at Manang. 3 hours Guest house

As we are moving to higher elevations, we need to acclimatize to avoid the risk of altitude sickness. Manang is the perfect spot with its beautiful natural setting and a hike up to Gangapurna lake view point in the afternoon for a short detour.

Day 8 Trek to Yak Kharka (4120m). 4 hours Guest house

After the rest, we feel rejuvenated to continue forward on our trip. As we move past the tall trees towards the alpine grass and junipers, we reach meadows with a few horses and a number of yaks grazing around. The serene environment with meadows and steep slopes of Yak Kharka is the perfect place for us to spend the night. We can also choose to walk for an hour to reach Letdar and spend the night there

Day 9 Trek to Thorung Phedi (4,560m). 5 hours Guest house

Trekking to Letdar helps in getting acclimatized to the increasing heights as we climb along the east bank of Jarang Khola. In some time we reach a meadow surrounded by vertical cliffs, the Thorung Phedi. Sighting of blue sheep and snow leopards have been reported a few times in the area, whereas Lammergeyers and griffons are quite common. We spend the night here.

Day 10 Over Thorung La (5,416m) to Muktinath (3,802m). 8 hours Guest house

The trail is comparatively easier having been trodden for years, but could get difficult with strong winds at the upper regions. The trail is believed to have been used for hundreds of years to take sheep and yaks in and out of Manang along with other trading goods. We reach Thorung Phedi in about 6 hours.After we reach Thorung la pass, our entire hard walk will be rewarded by the beautiful views of Annapurna, Gangapurna and a heavily glaciated peak of Khatungkang. After a 1600m of descent, we view the glorious Dhaulagiri standing in the distance. After a while, the trail becomes less steep and enters grassy fields and meadows to finally reach Muktinath.In Hindu religion, Muktinath refers to a place of nirvana which houses a temple and a number of monasteries, making it a holy site for Hindus and Buddhists alike. The main attractions of the site are the Jwalamai temple with a spring and an eternal flame as well as the 108 water sprouts that pour holy water. These are visited by thousands of pilgrims every year.

Day 12 Drive to Tatopani (1190m) 5 hours Guest house

From Jomsom it is about the 5 hour scnic drive to Tatopani. Since the road has been build lost of people take the Jeep or Bus rather the trekking. It is Jeep road driving through the villages and nature. After passing through numerous villages, we finally reach Tatopani. The main attraction of the place is the hot spring, which is a sauna with natural source of hot water. It is a relaxing experience to retire after the long journey.

Day 13 Trek to Ghorepani (2750m). 8 hours Guest house

Now we move from Tatopani through villages of midland Nepal with terraced fields and inclined farmlands. As we hike an ascent we move past rhododendron, magnolia and other vegetation of the area.

“From the first moment I made an inquiry on the trek I was impressed with the comprehensive emails from Chhatra (managing director), he made sure that all my questions were addressed and managed to send all the responses within a day (considering 6 hr time difference). Upon my arrival to Kathmandu Chhatra arranged airport pickup and personally met me even though it was 9 pm, he made sure that I safely checked in in the hotel. Both of the guides Chhatra provided me with have shown great level of professionalism and were really nice people themselves. Raju, who has shown me around Kathmandu, was not only very knowledgeable in terms of history but also had an awesome sense of humor which made the short tour quite a pleasant experience. Kumar, my guide for the trek, had a good level of English, and made sure that I had the best experience on the trek. He is a really caring guide and throughout 3 weeks treated me like his little sister. He shown a great level of flexibility as well. When I had an idea to opt out for Tilicho lake we worked on the alternative route to sqiz it in without affecting safety (we still had to accent slowly due to risk of AMS). As well we did all the possible side treks to avoid the road which made an experience even better. The lodges included in the package were quite good and offered wide variety of food. The views on trek were breathtaking and I really hope to come back soon to discover Everest region. Overall I highly recommend Nepal Eco Adventure as a company of great professionals and people.”

“From my first correspondence with Chhatra to my last goodbye at the airport all of the details that Nepal Eco Adventure took care of personally or arranged for me met or exceeded my expectations. The hotels, transportation, and guide services were all comfortable, dependable, and friendly. Chhatras timely ability to answer my questions and give recommendations to me, helped me immensely in planning my trip. I ended up doing the complete Annapurna Circuit with just myself and a guide, Pemba Sherpa. Pemba was always looking after my well being and his knowledge of the route allowed us to take alternate trails that meant we actually did little walking on the roads that some people feel are ruining the trekking experience. In my opinion the roads were not an issue. Besides his knowledge and guiding ability, Pemba is simply put, a great guy. He was my trekking companion and friend. We shared laughs and his ability to relate the history or significance of a region, people, shrine, custom, etc. enhanced my trip greatly. He could interpret for me if necessary and acted as my cultural liaison. The best reason I can think of for recommending Nepal Eco Adventure is that they made it easy for me to visit Nepal by taking care of the details and making sure everything went smoothly. Also, I should mention that I think the Annapurna Circuit is still a great trek. The diversity of terrain and cultural groups is stimulating and I must absolutely mention the mountains which fully live up to the true meaning of the often overused word, awesome.”
