Kathmandu, Pokhara and Manang Tour Overview

This trek takes you on an exciting and adventurous journey through the unexplored north vicinity of Annapurna, leading to the enchanting Nar Phu valley. Starting from Jagat, you will follow the Annapurna Circuit trail until you reach Koto, where you will take a less-traveled path towards Nar Phu valley located north of Manang. Along the way, you will cross the Kang La pass, which offers stunning views of the Annapurna massifs and connects Nar with Manang and three other Bhotia villages in the Neyshang valley. As you ascend higher into the valley, you will encounter an expansive landscape of snow peaks, ancient villages, and high-altitude grazing settlements, providing a glimpse into medieval Tibetan culture. The trek then leads you to the Thorong La Pass before descending through the lower Mustang and eventually reaching Jomsom. You will then take a flight back to Pokhara and drive to Kathmandu the following day.

Kathmandu, Pokhara and Manang Tour Itinerary

Day 1
A representative from Kantipur Holidays will meet us at the Tribhuwan International Airport (TIA) in Kathmandu and transfer us to our designated hotel. We might rest after checking in or go to the Kantipur Holidays office. A welcome dinner with authentic Nepali food and a quick cultural presentation will be held in a typical Nepalese restaurant in the evening.

Meals: Welcome Dinner
Day 2
After breakfast today, we begin a guided tour of some of Kathmandu's most revered historical and spiritual landmarks, which are also regarded as UNESCO World Heritage sites. We go to the historic Kathmandu Durbar Square, the holy Pashupatinath Hindu temple, the well-known Swayambhunath "Monkey Temple," and the Buddhist shrine Bouddhanath, which is also one of the biggest stupas in the world. We check our gear with our trekking guide at lunchtime, meet the other participants, and talk about our trip at the Kantipur Holidays office.

Meals: Breakfast
Day 3
Our journey begins at daybreak, and we depart from Kathmandu after having breakfast around 7 am in the morning. The drive to Jagat via Besishahar is long and takes around 8-10 hours, during which we will be able to enjoy the picturesque views of the Nepali countryside, including lush greenery, rivers, villages, farms, and mountain vistas. The drive up to Besishahar is usually smooth due to the black-topped roads, but after Besishahar, the roads become dusty and rough. However, the scenic view from our windowpane more than makes up for the bumpy ride. We will spend the night in Jagat.

Meals: Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner

Driving Duration: 8 to 9 hours
Day 4
After having breakfast, we will begin our trek at a leisurely pace. The trail from Jagat descends until it reaches the river and then continues through a lush forest. As we ascend further, we will come across a sharp-edged cliff facing the riverbank, with the glorious backdrop of towering Annapurna Mountain ranges visible in the distance, including the village of Chyamje. We will cross a suspension bridge and then face a physically challenging and slippery path to Sattale. Treading along a succession of rock-strewn trails, we will descend to a grassy riverbank that leads to Tal. As we move away from Tal, the path becomes rugged and winding. Eventually, we will reach the steep forested village of Karte, meandering along the waterfalls and cliffs until we finally cross a suspension bridge and reach Dharapani. We will spend the night in Dharapani.

Meals: Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner

Trekking Duration: 5 to 6 hours
Day 5
We will start our trek towards Bagarchhap in the morning, which will take us about an hour passing through beautiful pine and fir forests.

The trail is steeply ascending up to Timang, where we will be able to enjoy a stunning view of Mt. Manaslu and Peak 29.

Our day will start with traversing up and down and crossing suspension bridges over various streams.

The Khampa refugees from Tibet once captured and lived in this area. We will continue walking past the Phu Khola on a rocky trail for another three to four hours before finally reaching the Phu village. We will spend the night in Phu Gaon.

Day 8
Today is a rest day dedicated to acclimatization in the Lost/Hidden Valley. We can take this opportunity to explore the local culture, natural diversity, and religious practices of the Lama, Gurung, and Ghale ethnic groups residing here. We can observe how people survive in such a remote location by relying on agriculture, animal breeding, and seasonal migrations. Additionally, we can visit the Tashi Lakhang Monastery, which is listed as one of the 108 world's great Buddhist monasteries and is believed to be the last monastery built by Karmapa Rinpoche. Apart from cultural exploration, the valley also offers stunning views of Himlung Himal and other snow-capped peaks in the region. We will spend the night in Phu Gaon.

Meals: Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner
Day 9
The path goes downhill and crosses numerous streams and suspension bridges until reaching Mahendra Pul, which typically takes around four hours. One of the suspension bridges is elevated 80 meters above the Lapche River Gorge. We pause for a midday meal in Mahendra Pul before continuing on a steep uphill climb, passing many Buddhist stupas, and arriving at Nar Village, a journey that takes approximately two hours. In Nar Village, we can explore multiple Buddhist monasteries and enjoy breathtaking views of Pisang Peak and other small peaks.

Meals: Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner

Trekking Duration: 4 to 5 hours
Day 10
On this trek, this is the second planned rest day for acclimatization purposes.

We will spend the night in Nar.

Meals: Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner
Day 11
Today is an exciting day for adventure as we have a long day hike planned, so we will wake up early in the morning to start our journey towards Kangla pass.

Day 13
Starting from Manang village, the path crosses a stream and ascends to the village of Tenki, located above Manang. From there, the path continues to climb out of the Marshyangdi Valley and turns northwest up the valley of Jarsang Khola. Following this valley northward, the path passes a few pastures and a juniper tree scrub while gaining elevation. The trail then approaches the small village of Ghunsa, identifiable by its cluster of flat mud roofs just below the trailhead. Here, the path goes through meadows where horses and yaks graze. Crossing a small river on a wooden bridge, the trail passes an ancient Mani wall in a pleasant meadow and finally reaches the small village of Yak Kharka. To avoid altitude problems, it is recommended to ascend gradually rather than too quickly.

Meals: Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner

Trekking Duration: 5 to 6 hours

Our main goal for today is to cross Thorong La pass, which is one of the highest passes in the world. We will be crossing the pass from east to west, starting from Manang and ending at Muktinath. This direction is considered the easiest and safest. To reach the pass, we will wake up at around three in the morning and begin our ascent up the mountain.
