You must take your time initially, getting used to the elevation. Midway through the trip, you will encounter 5416m Thorung La Pass. On the other side of the pass, it is a steep descent to the Hindu and Buddhist shrines at Muktinath.

Itinerary

Day 1
Drive to Nagdi (1050m)

From Kathmandu, we start early for our drive to Nagdi. The road up to Besisahar is quite good. Once we reached the Besiahar we change the bus and 2 hours drive to Nagdi. Nagdi is river bank small village. After the long bus journey. Once we reach there, we freshen up and spend the night at the local lodge.

Day 2
Trek to Chamje (1410m).

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).

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).

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).

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).

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 others 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.

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 Khangsar in the afternoon for a short detour.

Day 8
Trek to Yak Kharka (4120m).

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).

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).

On this day, we make the quite long hike of about 7-8 hours. 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.

  1. Annapurna Circuit Trekking
    I just completed the 15-day Annapurna Circuit Trek with Nepal Eco Adventure. I couldn’t have chosen a better company to trek with. I went with my best friend Ari and as someone who had never done a big trek before, I was pretty nervous. Nepal Eco Adventure made me feel like a seasoned, confident, and well-prepared trekker. Our guide, Raj, was absolutely unbelievable. He not only made me feel safe, but he got me excited everyday for the adventures to come. As a vegan, it can be daunting to travel and not be in charge of your own food. Raj went above and beyond by not only always confirming that we had incredible food to eat, but he even brought us vegan peanut butter cookies at the top of Throng La! I always felt like I could ask Raj anything. I learned a ton from him, had very meaningful conversations and laughed a bunch every day of the trek. Raj was so supportive, and any concerns I had he quickly removed and replaced with a huge smile on my face! Our porter, Hari Chandra, was awesome as well. He carried our belongings up the mountain and with his positive energy, he metaphorically helped carry us up the mountain too. Together our group was outstanding and Nepal Eco Adventure was the best choice ever! I can’t wait to hopefully have another adventure with them soon!
