Approx. Time:5-6 hrs drive    Accommodation: Lodge   Meals:  3 times healthy & hygienic meals

Today we take Local jeep to drive up to Jagat. The newly build road allows us to drive by Local jeep. We can see wonderful views of waterfalls, village, rivers and Marshyandi Valley along the way to Tal.

Approx. Time: 4-5 hrs trek     Accommodation: Lodge   Meals:  3 times healthy & hygienic meals

We will pass the village of Tal at 1700 meter which lies at the foot of a large waterfall. The trail crosses a broad, flat valley that was once a lake (Tal means lake) after which we will cross the Marsyangdi by a 60 meter long suspension bridge. The trail will climb up from a second suspension bridge to a stone kani (an arch over the trail) which marks the entrance to Dharapani at 1960 meter. All old villages from here to Kagbeni have these arches and they become more elaborate and picturesque as the Tibetan influence becomes stronger. The trail slowly climbs from here on through a forest of blue pine, spruce, hemlock, maple and oak to Bagarchhap. This is the first village on the trek with typical Tibetan architecture: closely spaced stone houses, with flat roofs piled high with firewood. 

Approx. Time: 4-5 hrs trek     Accommodation: Lodge   Meals:  3 times healthy & hygienic meals

We will first follow the south bank of the river climbing to Syal Khola (the river of jackals) at 2210 meter, after which we will cross the river over a cement bridge near a spectacular waterfall. The route crosses several landslides as it works its way uphill through a walnut tree forest and aside apple orchards until we arrive at Chame. At the entrance of the village is a long wall with many prayer wheels. Throughout the day there are nice views of Lamjung Himal, Annapurna II and Annapurna IV (7525m) 

Approx. Time: 5-6 hrs trek     Accommodation: Lodge   Meals:  3 times healthy & hygienic meals

We will first pass the older part of Chame and climb up to Telekhu at 2840 meter and continue with a long pleasant and mostly level walk through the forest to Brathang, which lies at 2950 meter. After the trail rounds a bend here we will see the first view of the dramatic Paungda Danda rock face, a tremendous curved slab of rock rising more then 1500 meter from the river. We will cross back to the south bank of the Marsyangdi on a suspension bridge at 3080 meter and then make a long gentle climb over a ridge through blue pine forests. After this the trek will be reasonably level as it heads to the upper part of Manang valley to Pisang. This town marks the beginning of the region known as Nyesyang, the upper portion of the Manang district.

Approx. Time: 3-4 hrs trek     Accommodation: Lodge   Meals: 3 times healthy & hygienic meals

We leave the Annapurna Circuit trail behind today and climb up above the river on the slopes of Pisang Peak. We begin with a gentle climb across the hillside through scrub pine and Juniper before a steeper section on a zig-zagging trail to the village of Ghyaru (3673m) with its collection of dry-stone-walled medieval houses built one on top of another. Our route continues on a superb contour trail offering tremendous views of the Annapurna range until reaching the extensive fields and houses of Ngawal which is similar though bigger than Ghyaru. At Ngagwal we climb steadily to the small village of Chulu with its flour mill. We now climb up beside the stream for around 45 minutes to cross the khola on a wooden bridge. The steady ascent continues through fir and juniper to a small meadow and herder's hut in view of two splendid waterfalls, which we should reach in around 1 hour from the bridge.

Approx. Time: 4-5 hrs trek     Accommodation: Lodge   Meals:  3 times healthy & hygienic meals

It is a steep and relentless climb of 2 - 2½ hours to the top of the escarpment which generates the waterfalls which are in view from the camp. As we reach the top of this ridge, Chulu Far East comes into view for the first time. Our base camp for the mountain is set in a wide bowl an easy 15 - 20 minutes walk beyond the ridge top. Base camp is at an elevation of 4835 metres and it is important that we take an easy afternoon resting and drinking lots of fluid as part of the acclimatisation process.

Approx. Time: 4-5 hrs trek    Accommodation: Tented Camp  Meals:  3 times healthy & hygienic meals

This is a vital day for acclimatization prior to heading up to high camp. The order of the day is rest or perhaps a gentle walk. In the afternoon the guides will take us through the simple techniques of roped glacier travel and using fixed lines for safety. This is also a good opportunity to catch up on laundry, diary writing or other trek chores.

Approx. Time: 2-3 hrs training    Accommodation: Tented Camp  Meals:  3 times healthy & hygienic meals

From our base camp a clear trail climbs up the moraine. Cresting the ridge we encounter a moonscape of glacial debris, the remnants of a receding glacier and we make a high camp beside a small glacial lake. Altitude at High Camp is 5255 metres. Approximately 1½ hours walking. Depending on the group we may take this day as a second acclimatization day at base camp and make the ascent to high camp on the following day. Your trip leader will decide.Please note that your porters and trekking guide will not go any further than Base Camp. Only climbing Sherpa guide will be together with you during the climbing period.

Approx. Time: 2 hrs trek    Accommodation: Tented Camp  Meals:  3 times healthy & hygienic meals

Chulu Far East High Camp to Summit (6059 m.) and back to Base Camp:- Early morning around 3:00 A.M. get ready for climbing. Dress up to be done and breakfast be taken before leaving for the summit. There are several short sections of steep snow or ice (45 degrees) and bulges produced by the glacier. One can see beautiful views of many snowy mountains from the summit. After summit back to high camp and after backpack go down to Base Camp to meet your porters and trekking guide who are waiting for happy news.

Approx. Time: 9-10 hrs climb   Accommodation: Tented Camp  Meals:  3 times healthy & hygienic meals

Today our trek will slowly climb up to the Tibetan-style village of Bryaga at 3500 meter following the valley floor. At Bryaga we will see houses stacked one atop the other, each with an open veranda formed by a neighbor’s rooftop. The gompa, perched on a high crag overlooking the village, is the largest in the district and has an outstanding display of statues. We then continue through a very arid countryside, dominated by weird cliffs of yellow rock, eroded into dramatic pillars alongside the trail to reach today’s destination, the village of Manang, where the shops are surprisingly well stocked with all the things you might want to refuel on.

Approx. Time: 6-7 hrs Trek   Accommodation: Lodge  Meals:  3 times healthy & hygienic meals

Trekking slowly upwards to Thorung La we will leave the large trees behind and see vegetation consisting mainly of scrub juniper and alpine grass and we will pass a few meadows where horses and yaks graze. After we reach Yak Kharka we will see herds of blue sheep grazing the steep slopes as well.

Approx. Time: 3-4 hrs Trek   Accommodation: Lodge  Meals:  3 times healthy & hygienic meals

Again a relatively easy day to get used to the altitude before we have to cross the highest point in the trek, and possibly the highest point you have been on in your life. From Letdar we will continue to climb along the east bank of the Jarang Khola to Thorung Phedi, a rock-strewn meadow surrounded by vertical cliffs at 4420 meter. Blue sheep and even snow leopards can be sometimes seen in this valley. High in the skies above us we can see lammergeyers and Himalayan griffons circling around.

Approx. Time: 3-4 hrs Trek  Accommodation: Lodge  Meals:  3 times healthy & hygienic meals

At the beginning, we cross the famous high pass of Thorong La today. An early start is important to complete the mission. We reach Muktinath, an important pilgrimage site for both Hindus and Buddhist after crossing the pass. Muktinath hosts a Vishnu temple and a monastery nearby demonstrating the religions harmony in Nepal. For the Hindus, the region is a "Muktikhsetra" or the region of liberation or salvation. There are water spouts channeled for the stream running above the temple. We enjoy the tremendous stunning views of Dhaulagiri peak from Muktinath. 

Approx. Time: 8-9 hrs Trek  Accommodation: Lodge  Meals:  3 times healthy & hygienic meals

We now begin the descent down the dramatic Kali Gandaki valley, initially through arid country in the same geographical and climatic zone as Tibet. After passing through Jharkot and Khingar, villages with typical Tibetan architecture, we follow the valley floor most of the way to Jomsom and are rewarded with tremendous views of both Dhaulagiri and Nilgiri. Jomsom is a large town sprawled along both banks of the Kali Gandaki River, and it is here we will spend the final night of our trek. Note: We can drive to Jomosom by Jeep also.

Approx. Time: 4-5 hrs Trek  Accommodation: Lodge  Meals:  3 times healthy & hygienic meals

Vital information

Visa:

The most convenient (and less expensive) is to have a visa on arrival at Kathmandu airport. To do this, please bring a photo Passport size and Cash small bills.

  • 25 US dollars (or euro equivalent) for a 15-day visa (multiple entries)
  • 40 US dollars (or euro equivalent) for a 30-day visa (multiple entries)
  • 100 US dollars (or euro equivalent) for a visa from 31 to 90 days (multiple entries).

The visa is free for children under 10 years. For stays of less than 3 days, free visas no longer exist (take a visa "15 days").When you take your visa on arrival, check that the "sticker" is properly affixed: without it, your visa is not valid

Travel Insurance:

It is a condition of joining any of our holidays that you are insured against medical and personal accident risks (to include repatriation costs, air ambulance and helicopter rescue services). We also strongly recommend that you take out delayed departure and cancellation insurance, as all deposits paid are non-refundable.

A relaxed trip is not possible without good travel insurance. In the event of any sickness or injury, the cost of emergency treatment and evacuation is shocking. Therefore, travel insurance is strongly recommended for everyone who signs up with Mountain Sherpa Trekking & Expeditions.

We strongly recommend that you be careful while choosing a policy as some makes special exceptions for adventure travel. Before buying your insurance, please ensure that your insurer is aware of your MSTE itinerary and can agree to cover the activities being undertaken in the trip to Nepal, Tibet, Bhutan & India. Such as if you are planning trekking or climbing/expedition in Himalayas your insurance must cover emergency air ambulance/helicopter rescue including medical expenses. For a group tours in urban areas, your insurance coverage of ambulance or helicopter rescue is not mandatory, however better to have with them too. Again, in Tibet, Bhutan & India trips there is no possibility of helicopter rescue, so no need to buy the air ambulance coverage.

You need send us your copy of your insurance policy (e.g. your insurance certificate) or carry it with you while you come on the trip.
