Then, our guide and tour guide will pick you up for a half-day tour of Kathmandu city. The tour includes a visit to the Monkey Temple, also known as Swayambhunath, followed by exploration of UNESCO World Heritage sites, including Durbar Square. Here, you'll be captivated by attractions such as Hanuman Dhoka Palace and Kumari Ghar, home to the Living Goddess - Kumari. You'll also have the opportunity to visit numerous temples in Kathmandu Durbar Square.

Accompanied by our experienced Sherpa guide and team, we'll journey for approximately 3 hours until we reach the quaint settlement of Mugling, where we'll make a pit stop for an early lunch at a roadside restaurant. Continuing our expedition, we'll make our way to the charming town of Dumre, nestled beside the Marsyangdi River. The scenic drive spans about 185 km and takes roughly 6 hours from Kathmandu to reach Besisahar.

As we traverse the route, soak in the breathtaking scenery, and upon reaching Besisahar, marvel at the majestic snow-capped peaks of Lamjung Himal that adorn the landscape. For those seeking an extra adventure, we also have the option to extend our journey to Ngadi village on the same day, utilizing a local Jeep.

Here, amidst the rugged terrain and towering peaks, we're enveloped in the serene beauty of our surroundings. The base camp provides an ideal vantage point to admire the magnificent scenery of the Annapurna Himalayas, leaving an indelible mark on our memories.

As the day comes to an end, we settle into our tented camp at Chulu West Base Camp, surrounded by the tranquil ambiance of the mountains. Underneath the twinkling stars and towering peaks, we reflect on the day's journey and eagerly anticipate the adventures that await us. Tonight, we rest under the vast expanse of the Himalayan sky, ready to embrace the wonders of the days ahead.

Today, we will be enjoying an additional rest day at Chulu West Base Camp, allowing us ample time to acclimatize effectively.

Today is our summit day, and we're up before dawn, prepared for a challenging but rewarding journey ahead. With every step along the icy high-altitude trail, we're captivated by the stunning vistas of the towering Himalayas. Despite the rugged terrain of rocks and frozen ice, we persevere, steadily making our way to the summit of Chulu West Peak at 6,419 meters/ 21,055 feet. At the top, we're treated to breathtaking views of the Annapurna Massif, Lamjung Himal, Himlung Himal, Dhaulagiri Range, and more. After soaking in the majesty of the surroundings, we carefully descend back to the Base camp. Throughout the expedition, our expert Sherpa guide ensures our safety and enjoyment, providing support and guidance every step of the way. With their expertise and Sherpa spirit, we embark on a safe, enjoyable, and unforgettable adventure.

From Base Camp, our return path descends all the way to Leder. While descending, we enjoy the panoramic views of the Annapurnas and other peaks. 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 4,450 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 (3-4 hrs).

Today's trek begins before sunrise, around 4:00 AM, aiming to reach the pass by 9:00 or 10:00 AM at the latest to avoid weather-related challenges. The pass, Thorung La, stands at an altitude of 5,416 meters and offers breathtaking views of the Annapurna range, Gangapurna, and Khatung Kang. Despite the steep terrain, the trail is well-defined, used for centuries by locals herding sheep and yaks. Snow can block the pass unexpectedly, making timing crucial. Upon reaching the pass, marked by traditional prayer flags and a stone cairn, a teashop awaits, providing much-needed refreshment at this high altitude. The descent from the pass involves a drop of approximately 1,600 meters, offering stunning vistas of Dhaulagiri mountain in the distance. As the trail levels out, we traverse grassy fields and meadows before reaching our final destination, Muktinath. Muktinath, meaning "place of Nirvana," is home to the sacred Muktinath temple and several monasteries, revered by both Hindus and Buddhists. The temple, dedicated to Lord Vishnu, features 108 waterspouts and is believed to alleviate sorrows. Nearby, the JwalaMai Temple houses a perpetual flame fueled by natural gas. The entire journey spans 8 to 10 hours, offering spiritual enrichment amidst awe-inspiring natural beauty.
