Overview

The Annapurna Circuit Trek is known as one of the best long-distance treks in the world and depending on the route taken can range from a total distance of 160km to over 230 km. The long trekking goes through the massive Thorang pass at a massive altitude of 5416m.  The whole trek will take you through numerous landscapes, from the forest-covered hills of Lamjung to the incredible upper hills of Manang with its many waterfalls to the dry desert landscape of Mustang. Numerous sites of religious and cultural significance including the world-famous Muktinath temple will be a part of this journey as well as the 900-year-old monastery, Barga Gompa.

The route to Manang offers awesome views of Annapurna I and II. Fauna like the Himalayan Musk Deer, Blue sheep, and Chyangra are found everywhere. Yaks can be seen herded in the many villages on the trail as well. If you’re lucky, you might even be able to catch a glimpse of the endangered snow leopard. The Gangapurna Icefall as well as amazing scenic views of the Dhaulagiri, Annapurna Circuit Trek, Nilgiri, and Tukuche mountains are sure to have you mesmerized.

Taking around two and a half weeks to cover, the trekking begins at Jagat, a short drive away from the village of Besisahar. From Jagat, walking along rocky trails, we make our way to the village of Tal in the Manang district.

From Tal, we climb slightly to Dharapani where a stone entrance chorten welcomes us. Climbing further we reach Danaque at a modest altitude of 1850m.

Staying overnight at the villages of Chame and Upper Pisang, each offering an amazing look into the traditional Tibetan-inspired village life, we reach Manang walking alongside the Marsyangdi river. Manang lies at a high altitude of  3500m. Acclimatization at Manang is essential to ensure that the rest of the journey proceeds smoothly. Walking around and exploring Manang village along with the small climbs nearby helps the body get used to the high altitude.

Leaving Manang, we arrive at Yak Kharka. The amazing views of the mountain vistas from Manang and upwards is simply amazing. From here, the luscious greenery we were familiar with in Manang gets sparser. From Yak Kharka, our next destination of Throng Phedi lies at the foot of the Thorang Pass.

The next day is considered to be one of the hardest parts of the trekking as from Thorong Phedi, we make the amazing climb to Thorang La and descent to Muktinath. Thorang La shows us the China Side of the Tibetan Plateau as well as the Nepalese side. Amazing views of the mountains and valleys below can be seen that rival the scenery of heaven.

Muktinath, a site considered holy by both Hindus and Buddhists greets us. The ancient temple as well as the 108-tap water that is said to purify all sins is found there along with many monasteries and temples nearby. Exploring the culture there will be simply amazing.

Today we shall take a comfortable and scenic countryside drive from Kathmandu to Besisahar via the Kathmandu-Pokhara highway.  Leaving Kathmandu behind you drive through the snaky mountain road.  You cross several small streams and run parallel to the Trishuli River. You may see people rafting in the Trishuli river. After you cross the bridge in Mungling, we drive parallel to Marshyandi River. We sometimes see beautiful views of snow-capped Himalayas, which belong to the Manaslu range and surrounding peaks. After nearly 7 hours of drive, with a quick stop for lunch along the route, we finally reach Beshisahar, the headquarter of Lamjung district. It used to be the starting point of the trek until a couple of years ago, but at present condition due to the road being constructed further, we prefer to drive up to Syange. Almost every supply to higher altitude valleys and villages passes through this route and we can see local marketplace here carrying out their deals on commodities.

As we cross 3500m of altitude today, we can see a slight change in our topographical surroundings. The trekking route is much drier in the upper half of the Manang district. Yak herding and local agricultural farmings are major practices and occupations of local inhabitants.  Leaving behind Pisang, we climb a steep ridge that allows us to enjoy great views of Manang valley. Further taking the southern route through a tiny airstrip at Hongde(3325m) gradually, we pass through Ngwal village. Marshyandi river that we see again meets us at Mungi. In this way trekking for further an hour take us to Manang where we shall stay two night for acclimatization. Overnight stay at local lodge.

Proper acclimatization is important as it helps us to avoid altitude sickness usually seen commonly during high altitude treks. Therefore assisting acclimatization and letting our body adapt to the change in surroundings is what we do today. We shall do scenic walks around Manang village and do hike up to Gangapurna lake or Melaripa cave so that we reach higher grounds and return to lower ones for sleep. This process is considered the most effective way to tackle acute mountain sickness.  At Manang, there is also the Himalayan Rescue Association and if you are interested in volunteering then you can also assist western doctors here who are basically there to create awareness on altitude sickness and challenges that we have to face in the coming next few days while crossing Thorongla pass. Later today we return to our tea house at Manang and stay overnight there. Walking time:  3 to 4 hours, Included Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, and Dinner

We leave behind Manang village today crossing over the river stream. It shall be a challenging walk as mostly it is climbing activity through tough terrains above 4000m of altitude. Then we shall arrive at small Tenki village settlement from where we descend towards Jarsang valley, again cross the river, have our lunch at the nearby lunch site, and take on the strenuous steep climb towards Yak Kharka which is basically a Yak grazing field or in simple words Yak pasture land where we can see few Yaks grazing on grounds. Above this point there is no greenery, we feel like we have entered into alpine surroundings now after. If you can and are interested then with consultation with our professional trekking leader, you can hike up to Ledar today. We stay overnight at the local lodge at Yak Kharka. Walking time:  4 to 5 hours, Included Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, and Dinner

Hereafter this riverside lunch we ascend towards Ledar and at the end of the day, we arrive at Thorong Phedi at 4600m above sea level.

Today shall be the most important, challenging as well as rewarding day as we cross Thorong La Pass, the highest point of this trek, and heavenly site at 5416m elevation standing tall at eye level with Annapurna Himalayas.  We start our day early today before sunrise between 4 to 5 AM as reaching we target to arrive at the high pass before 10 am. Strong wind and clouds are common phenomena at that point afternoon, so we try to avoid that as far as possible while taking the best views like never before. This part of the trail is quite dangerous too, as heavy snowfall may cause interruption to plans and worst-case scenarios, therefore according to the weather condition of that exact time, consulting your trip leader and following his instructions is compulsory. Don’t simply follow your instincts or other group members. Always trust an experienced and professional trekking guide leading your group. From Thorong La pass we can see panoramic views of Annapurna Himalayas, surrounding us from all directions including other peaks like Yakgawa Kang, Khatung Gang, etc.

Further gentle descend changes to a steeper one and we slowly approach the popular pilgrimage site of Muktinath. Muktinath is a well-known religious site for both Buddhist and Hindu followers. There we get an opportunity to visit temples, monasteries and major Muktinath temples with 108 surrounding water spouts is the major one. Jwala Mai temple is another attraction of the pilgrimage site. We stay overnight at a local lodge in Muktinath. Walking time:  8 to 9 hours, Included Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, and Dinner

Spiritual essence circulates around our atmosphere as we shall visit the holy temple of Muktinath early in the morning today. We shall have our breakfast and walk gradually downhill to Ekley Bhatti. It is quite a steep walk down the trails, so careful and proper use of trekking poles along is required. Take one step at a time, don’t rush; simply enjoy the serene surroundings around and comfortably reach Ekley Bhatti. Further, we push ourselves towards Jomsom, a very windy place where you need to have a full face mask and wind stopper jacket to avoid windblast. Wind forming across the Valley Mountain and gorges blow even more strongly in the afternoon; therefore we try to cross the downstream of Kaligandaki and arrive jomsom  before noon.  Walking time:  4 to 5 hours, Included Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, and Dinner
