Annapurna Poonhill Luxury trek's Itinerary

You will be welcomed by our staff standing with your name-card in the airport arrival terminal and transferred to your hotel by the private vehicle. Small meeting about the trip in the evening.

We take a drive from Kathmandu in a private tourist vechicle to reach Besisahar and stay in a hotel.

After breakfast at hotel we start off road drive to Pisang. The trail cross several beautiful waterfall, lush forest and local villages. 

After Pisang, we have alternate paths at north and south of the Marsyangdi River that meets up again at Mungji. The southern route by Hongde, with its airstrip, at 3325m involves less climbing than the northern route via Ghyaru, despite the fact that there are better views on the trail that follows the northern bank of the river. From Mungji, the trail continues past the quaint but partially hidden village of Bryanga at 3475m to nearby Manang at 3500m. Walking along the valley through the drier upper part of Manang (the unofficial trekking capital of the Annapurna Circuit) we can view Annapurna range. People of this area herd yaks and raise crops for leaving, beside this during winter they move to other places for trades.

Today we explore Manang valley to take some rest and acclimatization for next days. We spend our day walking and sightseeing around Manang village, learn some Manang culture and the daytime is best to gain altitude.

Leaving Manang the trail ascends steadily along the Jarsang Khola valley and reaches Ledar at 4250 meter. Walking and glancing over the steadily sparse vegetations, we reach Yak Kharka at 4090 meter.

Descending the trail, crossing the river at 4310 meters and again climbing through the trail takes you to Thorong Phedi at 4420 meters. At the foot of Thorung La Pass, this place gives your pleasant view of massive Annapurna region.

The journey starts early in the morning from the foot of the hill to the Thorung La Pass, highest place of our twentyone days Annapurna Circuit Trek. Crossing the steeply made pass, covered with stone, we hike gradually looking at magnificent views. Pass marked by Chortens and prayer flags looks nice and magnificent views imprints in your memory. Passing Thorung La, we reach the sacred site of Muktinath at the elevation of 3800 meters. Hindus and Buddhists alike visit Muktinath. The temple is built in the pagoda style dedicated to Lord Vishnu or Avalokiteshwara as the Buddhists call him. For Hindus, Muktinath is one of the most important places of pilgrimage. Long and difficult yet rewarding day of our Annapurna Circuit Trek.

From Muktinath we took a local jeeps and drive to Tatopani. Evening you can visit hot spring for Jacuzzi.

From Tatopani we head forward to Ghorepani. The trail goes along lush rhododendron and lush forest after leaving Kaligandaki behind. Ghorepani is a small village inhabited by Gurungs and Thakalis. The name Ghorepani means water to horses. It is place where the horses carrying the goods and commodities would clear their thirst.

This is one of the fascinating day of your trek. Early morning wake up and start your journey climbing to Poon Hill (3210m) for around 1 hr. to witness best majestic scenery and sunrise over the high mountains. Lots of white mountains can be seen from poonhill including the likes of Dhaulagiri [8167m], Annapurna South [7119m] Fishtail [6993m], Nilglgiri south, Singa chuli , Annapurna I [8091m]. You then come down to Ghorepani to have breakfast. After your breakfast you ascend down along the trail decorated by rhododendron and oak forest, and soothing sound of streams entertains the soul. We have our Lunch at Tikhedhunga and finally reach Birethanti to spend the night.

After our early breakfast, we head towards Pokhara, just an hour drive away from Birethanti. The day is spent with various activities in pokhara such as boting in the lakes, or a sweet scape to the Peace Pagoda in the evening.

A rest day a final shopping day at Kathmandu.

The trip ends, our Airport Representative will drop you to the Kathmandu International Airport for your flight departure from Nepal.
