Detailed Itinerary

Drive or Flight to Pokhara

You will take an early morning tourist bus from Kathmandu to Pokhara. The bus journey offers awesome views of the country side of Nepal. Our staff will receive you at the airport/bus park and take you to your hotel in Pokhara.

Drive to Nayapul, trek to Ulleri (2000m)

You leave Pokhara by road, driving along the valley of the Modi Khola for about an hour before walking a short distance from the road to Birethanti, a busy village of lodges, shops and houses. You commence your trek with a gradual ascent along the left bank of the Bhurungdi Khola. You then leave the river and follow a trail along the upper edge of terraced fields through Hille to Tikedungha.

Thereafter, you have to cross a stream beyond the village and then drop down to the suspension bridge over the Bhurungdi Khola. Then follow a long, steep and seemingly endless climb up a stone staircase, eventually arriving at the village of Ulleri . From this village, there are fine views of Annapurna South and Hiunchuli. You get to camp in the terraced fields, (walk approx 5 hours.)

Trek to Ghorepani (2775m)

As you ascend along the path that leads to a forest you will find Annapurna South hidden by a ridge. Beyond Banthanti, there are magnificent forests of oak and rhododendron. After crossing several crystal clear mountain streams you arrive at the village of Nangathanti . Another few hours of trekking through the forest brings you to Ghorepani. Ghorepani literally means “horse water” and it is a popular watering spot for mules which ply this route from Pokhara to Jomsom and beyond. Ten minutes walk beyond Ghorepani is a small pass and the village of Deorali .

For proper acclimatization, you rest your trekking journey for the day at Ghorepani and overnight at a superb camp site.(walk approx 3 hours)

Trek toTadapani (1900m)

You can catch an amazing sunrise view from an ideal vantage point of Poon Hill. After breakfast, you have to descend to Tatopani through the rhododendron forest amidst the magnificent natural vistas. As you near Chitre, you can feast on the awe-inspiring view of Dhaulagiri Range . The path then leads through terraced fields to Sikha, a Magar village clustered on a ridge. You continue descending, gradually at first and then more steeply to cross the Ghar Khola. After a short climb, you then cross the Kali Gandaki on a large suspension bridge and from thereon it is only a short distance upstream to Tatopani. Tatopani takes its name from the hot springs near the river below the village. (walk approx 5-6 hours)

Trek to Ghasa(2000m)

You follow the trail that ascends gently up the Kali Gandaki Gorge, the deepest gorge in the world, towards the village of Dana which is surrounded by orange groves. En route, you come across local people selling baskets of oranges. Just beyond the small hamlet of Rupse, a thundering waterfall cascades down beside the trail. Thereafter, the trail enters the steepest and narrowest section of the gorge. You will find the layered stone path well-constructed and wide. As the rock cliffs end, you head towards Ghasa, a quaint Thakali village where you spend the night. You can see several flat-roofed Tibetan style houses in Ghasa. (walk approx 5-6 hours)

Trek to Larjung (2560m)

After breakfast you trek away from Ghasa towards Larjung. A few hours of descent leads you down to follow other rock-strewn ascents through forests of fir, cypress and juniper along the riverbank of Kali Gandaki. As soon as you reach Larjung, you cannot help but marvel at the architectural splendors of this exotic town; tunnels, narrow alleyways and houses built in traditional style make interesting sight. There are several hotels in Larjung.

Trek to Jomsom (2713m)

You begin to trek along the trail that follows the wide valley of the Kali Gandaki, passing through Khobang and Tukuche. Yet again you get to sightsee narrow alleyways and houses built around enclosed courtyards as a protection against the unpredictable wind of the Kali Gandaki gorge. The trail further meanders through stone-walled orchards. Soon you will come across a stone gate that marks the entrance to Marpha. You can spot several white-walled houses. Marpha has well-maintained drainage system and is most popular for its local apple brandy. After lunch in Marpha, you continue trekking towards Jomsom.

As you approach your destination, the landscape becomes increasingly arid and impressive with its mixture of browns, yellows and greys contrasting with the white snowcaps of Tilicho and Nilgiri. After dinner, you can overnight at a good hotel in Jomsom. (walk approx 5 hours)

Trek to Muktinath (3710m)

After breakfast you resume your trekking along the path up the vast gravel riverbed of the Kali Gandaki. You come across a stream and verdant vegetation. On crossing a small ridge to Chhancha Lhumba at 2730 meters, you continue heading towards Muktinath. Mount Dhaulagiri and Nilgiri dominates the view as you ascend to Khingar (3200 meters). More meadows, streams and lush vegetation can be seen along the trail as it paves to Jharkot (3500 meters). You encounter the ruins of the Dzong and pristine villages of Purang and Changur. As you trek past mule stables and steep barren hillside, you enter Ranipauwa. Ranipauwa for years has remained an ideal resting point for pilgrims and travellers.

On trekking further, you enter Muktinath. Temples and religious shrines are the major attractions of this holy place; Buddhist gompa and pagoda-style temple of Lord Vishnu are the pilgrims’ destination. Muktinath is an important pilgrimage site for both Hindus and Buddhists. There are several hotels and camping places in Muktinath.(walk approx 4-5 hours)

Trek to Jomsom (2713m)

Heading away from Muktinath, you retrace your path to Jomsom feasting on a magnificent view of Mount Nilgiri. You overnight in Jomsom and take the opportunity to have a farewell party with the crew who you have come to know so well over the last 10 days.(walk approx 3 hours)
