Detail Itinerary

Day 01 Kathmandu 
Arrive Tribhuvan International Airport in Kathmandu. Welcome & assistance on arrival at Airport, then transfer to Hotel, hotel check in. Over night stay at Hotel.

Day 02 Pokhara – Ulleri (915m-2073m.): 
Fly (40 minutes) from Kathmandu to Pokhara, Arrive Pokhara. Leave Pokhara by bus. We have to get off at Naypul and then head towards Birethati. The journey will take about 2 hours over the hill to Chandrakot where we alight to start our walking. Cross the river at Birethati and head left along the gentle slope to Tikhedunga where we cross the Bhurungdi Khola to start the long steep climb to Ulleri. Here we will find a lodge to spend the night. Over night stay at Lodge

Day 03 Ulleri – Ghorepani (2073m – 2855m): 
Continue our climb along the trail making sure we are always on the inside of the path when passing through the donkey pass. Occasional views of the peaks give way to a narrower valley, we pass through Rhododendron forest and eventually reach Ghorepani. If we find a lodge near the top of the pass we'll have less to walk in the morning. If we are up early enough to walk half an hour up to Poon Hill we get to see the sunrise and the spectacular views of Machapuchhre, the Annapurna South, Nilgire and Dhaulagiri. Over night stay at Lodge.

Day 04 Ghorepani – Tatopani. (2855m-1189m): 
Enjoy the cool stillness of the forest as we descend steeply through Chitre, Shikha and Ghara all of which offers refreshment and a chance to rest our knees. After about 6000 ft. of descend we have our first sight of the Kali Gandaki River, which we cross to reach Tatopani. Tatopani means ' hot water' and to plunge into the Geothermal water in the well-maintained pool near the river is worth after the days walk. Lodge at either the village or at the North end. Over night stay at Lodge.

Day 05 Tatopani – Ghasa (1189m-2010m): 
We continue walking up the valley today, which becomes progressively steeper and narrow as the river becomes 'younger' when the river meets the Rupse Khola. There is a waterfall and the Geology changes. The river valley becomes "old again" the secret being that the river was here long before the Himalayas. There are lodges to stay at along the way at Ghasa. Over night stay at Lodge.

Day 06 Ghasa – Tukuche (2010m-2560m): 
After breakfast at Ghasa we make our way to Tukuche. From Ghasa the trail is very beautiful with forests and spectacular views of the peaks. Leaving Ghasa, the vegetation begins to change from subtropical trees and shrubs to alpine species such as pine and birch. From the top of a ridge, we descend to a stream before ascending once more through the forest. After passing through Kaiku, we descend to a side valley and scramble across a large landslide before crossing the Lete Khola. The trail then climbs up through the spread-out village of Lete and continues across a wide plain through pine groves to Kalopani. With awesome mountain views in the background, the path follows the riverbank for some distance before dividing into two trails. The trail on the east bank climbs over a forested ridge before dropping back down to the river and crossing the wide gravel bars of the riverbed. A series of temporary bridges cross the river itself, although it is sometimes necessary to wade across small sections. The west bank trail climbs to Sukung before descending through forests to the riverbank, from where it is a short walk to the village of Larjung. We continue to follow the wide valley of the Kali Gandaki, passing through Khobang and Tukuche. Over night stay at Lodge.

Day 07 Tukuche - Jomsom (2560m- 2713m): 
Tukuche is a delightful village where narrow alleyways and houses built around enclosed courtyards attempt to provide some shelter from the winds which howl through the gorge. The wind generally picks up after about midday, but will at least be blowing at our backs as we head up to Jomsom. After passing through stone-walled orchards, a stone gate marks the entrance to Marpha. White walled houses line both sides of the narrow paved street, under which flows a cleverly made drainage system. Marpha makes a good lunch stop and the courtyards of the many lodges make ideal resting and refreshment places. The local apple brandy is well-known! As the trail continues towards Jomsom, the landscape becomes increasingly arid and impressive with its mixture of browns, yellows and greys, contrasting with the white snowcaps of Tilicho and Nilgiri. By afternoon, the stiff winds begin to blow, hastening our way to Jomsom. Over night stay at Lodge.

Day 08 Jomsom –Kagbeni (2713m-2800m): 
If we are in Kagbeni we will reach Muktinath. Head up the wide riverbed about an hour and we'll come to a lodge for refreshment before deciding on the high path of Muktinath or low path of Kagbeni. Both are interesting and meet halfway up the hill. As we turn east away from the Kali Gandaki river there are views to Muktinath and the Thorung Pass in the distance. Jarkot is much more real then the trekking village of Muktinath and it is possible to stay here and visit the temple the next morning without your heavy pack. Muktinath Temple is a point of Pilgrimage for Buddhist and Hindus where flame, water and air meet. Over night stay at Lodge.

Day 09 Kagbeni – Muktinath (2800m-3802m): 
If we are in Kagbeni we will reach Muktinath. Head up the wide riverbed about an hour and we'll come to a lodge for refreshment before deciding on the high path of Muktinath or low path of Kagbeni. Both are interesting and meet halfway up the hill. As we turn east away from the Kali Gandaki river there are views to Muktinath and the Thorung Pass in the distance. Jarkot is much more real then the trekking village of Muktinath and it is possible to stay here and visit the temple the next morning without your heavy pack. Muktinath Temple is a point of Pilgrimage for Buddhist and Hindus where flame, water and air meet. Over night stay at Lodge.

DAY 10 Muktinath - Jomsom (3802m-2713m) 
It's an easy return trip to Jomsom today and the view down the stony plains of the Kali Gandaki to the vast white-topped wall of the Nilgiris, is simply stunning. We will spend the last night of the trek in Jomsom and take the opportunity to have a farewell party with the crew who we came to know so well over the last 10 days. Over night stay at Lodge.

Day 11 Flight to Pokhara 
We take an early morning flight from Jomsom to Pokhara - a fantastic way to round off the trek, flying right along the Kali Gandaki Gorge between the Annapurna and Dhaulagiri ranges. Catch further flights to Kathmandu. Over night stay at Hotel.

Day 12 Pokhara 
Full free day in Pokhara. We have the opportunity to explore the surrounding lakeside area and the local bazaar. Overnight at Hotel.

Day 13 Kathmandu 
Breakfast at Hotel. We take morning flight back to Kathmandu. 
Visit 2000 years old shrine Swyambhunath Temple, which is also known as temple of monkeys. It is said that Asoka paid a visit to the site 2000 years ago. By 1200s it was an important Buddhist center. Visit colorful Durbar square known as Hanuman Dhoka Palace, Temple of living goddess Kumari, Jagannath temple known for its colorfully painted wood carvings and Kasthamandap temple a three story pagoda style.
