We will stay overnight at Nar after a walk of 6 to 7 hours.

Day 08: Acclimatization at Nar

As we will be at an altitude where the air is much thinner; we will be taking another day rest at Nar to make our body comfortable for another day’s trekking. We will be hovering around the village to observe the village’s lifestyle and culture today.

Day 09: Trek from Nar to Kang La Pass

Our adventurous journey will begin as we walk for Kang la pass at 5322 meters from where we will be observing the Annapurna Massif. We will descend from here to reach Ngwal at an altitude of 3660 meters to have overnight stay.

Day 10: Trek from Ngwal to Manang

From Ngwal, we head for Manang today. We pass through the isolated village of Paugh overlooking the amazing views of Annapurna range. We then move gently uphill to Mungli and then to the main trail of Annapurna Trail at Mungli. We eventually reach Manang, where we set up our camps for overnight stay.

Day 11: Trek from Manang to Yak Kharka

From Manang village, the trail crosses a stream, climbs to a village of Tenki above Manang, and then continues to climb out of the Marshyangdi Valley turning northwest up the valley of Jarsang Khola. The trail follows this valley northward, passing a few pastures, a scrub of juniper trees, as it steadily gains elevation. The trail further passes near the small village of Ghunsa, a cluster of flat mud roofs just below the trailhead. Now the trail goes through meadows where horses and yaks graze. After crossing a small river on a wooden bridge, the trail passes an ancient old Mani wall in a pleasant meadow and then reaches another small village of Yak Kharka.

Day 12: Trek from Yak Kharka to Thorong Phedi

We make our way to the foot of the pass, Throng Phedi today. Thorong Phedi is a small busy settlement catering to the needs of tired trekkers and climbers. Trekkers like us use this point as a base camp. Some visitors also attempt a hike to the High Camp today so that the next day can be easier for them. But our team leader does not advise this. Although we will have a tough day tomorrow, we stop at Thorong Phedi so that we can have sound sleep in lower altitude rather than risking sleeping in a higher altitude at High Camp.

Day 13: Trek from Thorong Phedi to Muktinath via Thorong La Pass

Crossing the arduous Thorong La Pass at a dizzying height of 5,416m/17,764ft is another highlight of this trek. An early start is important to go through the icy high-altitude trail. But the picturesque mountain vistas are more than compensates the strenuous walk through the grueling trail. We reach Muktinath by sunset which is an important pilgrimage site for both Hindus and Buddhist. We can stroll around the area which hosts a Vishnu temple and a Monastery nearby.

Day 14: Trek from Muktinath to Jomsom

We begin descending down the dramatic Kali Gandaki Gorge through the arid land. We pass by Jharkot and Khingar villages which has typical Tibetan architecture. Following the valley floor most of the way sprawled along the banks of the Kali Gandaki, we reach Jomsom.

Day 15: Fly from Jomsom to Pokhara Flight

After breakfast we check in the airport for Pokhara flight. The scenic flight takes us through the gorge of the two huge mountains, Annapurna and Dhaulagiri. On arrival at Pokhara airport, we will be transferred to lakeside hotel. We get some rest and explore the beauty of Pokhara Valley in the evening. While we leisurely walk along the bank of Fewa Lake, the second biggest lake of Nepal while admiring the mountain view of Machhapuchhare. We can also go for a boat-ride in Fewa or take a short hike to the World Peace Pagoda. We can end the day with a leisurely stroll around the mesmerizing lakeside.

Day 16: drive from Pokhara to Kathmandu

Today, after breakfast, we make a 200 kilometers drive back to Kathmandu. It’s better to hold on to the left pane of the vehicle to enjoy the scenery through the route.
