Annapurna Circuit Trek 10 Days Itinerary

Early in the morning, you will be transferred to the bus station from where you will catch a local bus to Besisahar. The drive from Kathmandu to Besisahar is 175km and takes around 7 hours along a scenic route. The drive takes you through the most beautiful countryside view and natural scenery. The green hills, tranquil flowing Trishuli River, terraced fields and small villages will leave you awestruck. Another drive from Besisahar to Chame takes around 3 to 4 hours that too through the scenic but bumpy trail. Chame is the district headquarters of Manang and offers majestic views of Annapurna, Manaslu and Lamjung Himal. Enjoy the ride as you pass small village settlements through lush pine forests.

The trek officially starts off today as you walk along the bank of Marsyangdi River making your way to Telekhu via dense pine forest. The pleasant walk along the forest continues to Brathang. As you cross a suspension bridge over the Marsyangdi River beneath the sacred Hindu pilgrimage site, Swarga Dwari, you will be pleased with the view of the gigantic Paungda Dada rock that resembles a bowl. The walking trail takes further from here takes you to the small village of Pisang as you pass some more pine forest. The giant Annapurna stands tall in the valley of Pisang.

With the alluring background view of the tranquil Himalayas, you will pass through rich woodlands of pine and juniper. After crossing the suspension bridge over the Khumi Khola, make a stop at Ghyaru and admire the 360-degree panorama of Annapurna II (7937m), Lamjung (6983m), Tilicho peak 7134m), Pisang peak (6091m) and many more. Walking past the Tibetan-styled village, you will enter the territory of Ngawal and get the sight of Humde airport and Pisang village as you visit the monastery and get an insight into the cultural richness of the region.

The trail from Ngawal drops to Marsayangdi River and then passes through pine and juniper forest along with the sights of the glorious mountain. Walk past the monastery and ethnic settlements before arriving in Manang. The vegetation slightly changes after Humde and is mostly rocky ridges, dry and deserted. The village of Manang and Mustang has gained popularity among the local tourist as a village beyond the Himalayas and is the most visited place in Nepal.

A well-deserved break!! As you have already gained height above 3500, today you will take a day's rest. After enough sleep in the lap of the Himalayas, hike to the Gangapurna Lake to gain some altitude for the next day or roam around the village and chit-chat with locals. Enjoy the views of Gangapurna (7454m), Tilicho Peak (6920m) and Thorong Peak (6144m) as you spend the day on your own.

Continuing your journey, today you will leave Marshyangdi River behind and ascend your way to Gunsang via Tenki Manang. Gunsang offers a magnificent panorama of mountains. As you pass some meadows and a suspension bridge over Thorung Khola you make your way to the night stop, Yak Kharka.

The trek to the foothills of Thorong La pass, Thorang Phedi is not very demanding. The trail starts along the bank of Jarang Khola until you cross the suspension bridge to Thorong Phedi. The meadow is surrounded by cliffs and has special guests sometimes like blue sheep and leopards. You will get their sight if you are lucky enough. Overnight in the teahouse.

The most challenging yet rewarding part of the trek awaits you as you hike from Thorang Phedi early in the morning before the hard breeze makes it hard to summit the pass. So hike to the point before the weather worsens. The trail leads all the way to pass and offers panoramic views of the Himalayas. Thorang La pass is the longest pass in Nepal and proffers captivating views of Annapurna, Gangapurna and Khatung Kang. Descending down the pass you will enter the sacred Hindu and Buddhist pilgrimage site, Muktinath. Dedicated to Lord Vishnu the temple has 108 water sprouts. The water from the sprouts is supposed to be holy and is believed to wash off the sins.

After a short visit to the sacred site, Muktinath, enjoy the scenic ride to Tatopani via the beautiful Jomsom village. Admire the beautiful houses and views of the Himalayan ranges as you pass the village and cross the deepest gorge, Kali Gandaki lying between the gigantic mountain range of Mt. Annapurna,  Mt. Dhaulagiri together with other snow-capped peaks. As you arrive at Tatopani, get on the natural hot spring bath and beat the fatigue and lethargy of the trek.

The trek nearly comes to an end as you drive back to Pokhara in a local bus. The drive takes around 5 hours but offers amazing views of the countryside. From terraced fields to highland hills, from mountain views to the views of small huts and houses. The journey is nothing but an exploration of the part of Nepal you have not ever discovered.
