Detail Itinerary

Day 1Arrival at Kathmandu

As per your flight schedule, we will pick you up at Tribhuvan International Airport. After that, we will drop you at the hotel and let you rest. We will, however, reconvene at the welcome dinner to go over the itinerary briefly.

Day 2Kathmandu Sightseeing

On this day, you will go sightseeing in Kathmandu. We will suggest some places, so you can choose where you want to go. You will be doing sightseeing at heritage sites in the Kathmandu valley.

Day 3Kathmandu to Besi Sahar(760 m)

This day, you will directly go to Besisahar from Kathmandu. Besi Sahar would be our first stop on our Annapurna Circuit trek. It's a small yet lovely village. Besi Sahar is where you'll spend the night.

Day 4Besi Sahar(760 m) to Nadi Bazaar(930 m)

Nadi Bazaar, like Besi Sahar, is a small community. In Nepalese, the word Nadi means "river." It is located on the banks of one of Nepal's most prominent rivers, as the name suggests. Our journey toward this gorgeous and charmingly promising town, replete with breathtaking views of the Himalayas, begins as the sun rises. You have two options: catch a local bus or walk for more than three hours. You would pass through Khundi and Bhulbhule, as well as one suspension bridge, on your way there. Spend the night at Nadi Bazaar.

Day 5Nadi Bazaar(930 m) to Jagat(1,300 m)

This morning's journey would be the longest of our journey. After passing through the beautiful green forest and hearing bird chirpings, our journey will come to an end at Jagat. Jagat is a tiny, traditional-style village in the Lamjung District of north-central Nepal, along the Gandaki River. Night stay in Jagat

Day 6Jagat(1,300 m) to Dharapani(1,860 m)

We would begin our journey after breakfast. You may come across the magnificent valley terrain with the Marsyangdi river and spectacular waterfalls along the way. The sound of the waterfalls and the cold breeze are the nicest sensations one may get while trekking. We'd then come to rest in Dharapani. Dharapani Overnight Stay

Day 7Dharapani(1,860 m) to Chame(2,670 m)

The walk from Dharapani to Chame is not as strenuous as the previous days, while it also continues to provide beautiful views of flora, valleys, and waterfalls. Furthermore, you would be traveling via Dar, Ti, and Thanchwok, Manang's capital. Chame would be where we would spend the night.

Day 8Chame(2,670 m) to Upper Pisang(3,300 m)

Upper Pisang is a lovely town perched on the peaks of Annapurna II, III, and IV, as well as the Pisang peak. Furthermore, there are various gompas, Tibetans, and Buddhists around you here. The exhausting walk from Chame would come to an end at Upper Pisang. It’s a trip from one capital to the next.

Day 9Upper Pisang(3,300 m) to Manang(3,540 m)

Despite the fact that the day would be exhausting and you might get some frigid punches of icy wind, you would be eager to finish the walk because you'd be in bliss in Nepal, also known as the Kingdom Behind the Himalayas. Yes, we would be going toward Manang, a desert-like town that is breathtakingly lovely. The excursion would be more exciting because it would provide you with an excellent opportunity to hone your secret ability in photography. It would be impossible to not share a photograph with the pure faces of Annapurna II, III, and IV. Night stay in Manang

Day 10Acclimatization day

Acclimatization is required on a high-altitude journey. It assists you in adjusting to and accumulating information about the current environment. As a result, your chances of experiencing altitude sickness are reduced. Furthermore, it would be an excellent opportunity to see this lovely village of Manang. To keep yourself busy and engaged in the walk, you can hike up to Gangapurna Lake and Prake Gompa. Stay in Manang for the night.

Day 11Manang(3,540 m) to Letdar(4,200 m)

It's one of those days when you feel like you're in the lap of the Himalayas. The grazing vistas of yaks and Annapurna III, combined with the cold breeze passing through Yak Kharka, would round out your day and your hike at Letdar. Letdar is a little town on the way to the Annapurna Circuit that offers some spectacular vistas, much better than Yak Kharka. The majority of people frequently regret not staying in Letdar. Stay the night in Letdar.

Day 12Letdar(4,200 m) to High camp(4,925 m)

The day begins here, and our most difficult route awaits you. Yes, there would be some steep and slippery paths ahead of us. We would climb up to Thorung Phedi, also known as Low Camp, before reaching High Camp. Well, many travelers do spend the night there. It's always up to you whether you want to quit or keep going. However, it would be ideal if we could continue our journey up to High Camp today and recuperate. One noteworthy feature of the walk is that you will be passing through some stunning bridges and waterfalls. Stay the night at High Camp.

Day 13High camp(4,925 m) to Thorung la pass(5,416 m) and then Muktinath(3,740 m)

Thorung La Pass would take roughly 3 hours to reach High Camp. This odd routine can still be found nowadays. We'd have breakfast early in the morning, like 4 a.m., with the glittering stars overhead. We'd start our trek before the sun came up, holding torches in our hands. One has to ask why all of these things happened so quickly. Well, you're in the Himalayas now, so there must be some advantages, don't you think so? Yes, and we would do anything to get a glimpse of the snow leopard or the foxes. Well, it was quite a wild joke. We'd be walking this early to get to Thorung La Pass as soon as possible. Because the sun does not wait for you to arrive at Thorung La Pass before it shines. The prayer flags on top of the hill welcome you to Thorung La Pass, one of the world's highest trekking passes. From there, we'd make our way to Muktinath. It would be more interesting, even though it would not be a simple route to take and pass because it is difficult. The route will take you to Muktinath via the steep background slope of Muktinath Temple. Stay the night in Muktinath.

Day 14Muktinath(3,740 m) to Kagbeni(2,800 m) and then Old Jomsom (2,742 m)

Muktinath is one of Nepal's holiest temples. It combines Hindu and Buddhist practices. The temple is uncommon in that it is a Hindu temple dedicated to Lord Vishnu, but the priest of the temple is a Buddhist. Above all of this, the priest is a female, which is extremely unusual to see. And we were going to do some touring over there this morning. We'd travel after breakfast to Kagbeni, one of Nepal's pristine villages. Kagbeni is also considered one of the Himalayas' oldest communities. The ancient households and lifestyles of people, as well as the villages in this area, make it more appealing than its name suggests. We'd drive to Jomsom after seeing the sites in Kagbeni. Stay in Jomsom for the night.

Day 15Jomsom to Pokhara

Today, we will return to Pokhara. It's going to be a long day if you are not going to return by flight. Night stay at Pokhara

Day 16Back to Kathmandu

Today, after a hearty Himalayan breakfast, we'd board a flight back to Kathmandu. After you get to Kathmandu, you can spend your day any way you like. But, before dawn, we would reach Nagarkot, probably the best sunset point in Kathmandu Valley.

Day 17Rest Day

Today you will have a rest day. You can choose to have a relaxed day or go shopping. You can also use this day to visit the remaining heritage sites in Kathmandu. Night stay in Kathmandu

Day 18Departure

We will be dropping you off at the international airport as per your flight schedule. Before that, we will have breakfast or lunch together as we conclude your trip to Nepal.
