Early in the morning is when the trek's first day begins. We travel to Bhulbhule by bus from Kathmandu after breakfast. The path leads us away from the Kathmandu valley and along the lovely Trishuli river to Besisahar before arriving in Bhulbhule. Bhulbhule is situated next to the Marsyangdi River. You will witness terraced farms, quaint villages, and the snow-capped peaks of Ganesh and Manaslu while riding. We register our permits at the checkpoint for the trek entry at Bhulbhule.
On this day, we will embark on the trails after a filling breakfast. The route travels upriver along the rushing Marsyangdi river on a lovely trail through the lush jungle and terraced crops. After a relaxing lunch break, we travel through a number of rural communities and other farmlands before arriving at the tranquil village of Jagat, an old trading center.
The third day of the walk begins by following the Marsyangdi river, and at Tal village, after a difficult ascent, we arrive close to the Manang region. Besides the sandy beaches, we can see a number of waterfalls forming a river. To get to Kodo, one of the largest settlements in the Manang valley, we will travel through fields of potatoes, rice, and barley. Continuing on, we cross a suspension bridge and arrive at Dharapani, our target for the day, following a little ascent of the stone Stairs.
We depart from Dharapani and go down the Marsyangdi River on trails through woods of pine, fir, oak, and maple trees until we arrive in Chame, the administrative center for the Manang district. Green trees will surround you on all sides, and when you glance up, Lamjung Himal, Annapurna II, and Annapurna IV will be seen in stunning detail (7,525m). We'll also take a quick break at a little hot spring.
After breakfast today, we take a short hike down a small, steep valley to our first glimpse of the Paungda Danda Rock, which the locals hold in high regard. A curving rock face rising 1500 meters from the Marshyandi river is known as the Paungda Danda Rock. We can clearly see Pisang Peak in the northeast and Annapurna II in the south from the routes. After that, our route declines, bringing us to the Pisang settlement at the bottom of the Manang Valley, where we will spend the night.
The north faces of Annapurna II, III, and IV, Gangapurna, Tilicho, and Pisang Peak can be seen in stunning detail from Upper Pisang through Geru, where we will be trekking on our sixth day. You'll notice that the air becomes chilly, dry, and harsher as the trail climbs. Along this trail, which passes through Tibetan settlements, we can learn more about Buddhist culture. The largest monastery in Manang, Barge Monastery, will definitely be on our itinerary. As we continue past additional monasteries and eventually arrive at Manang bazaar, a tourist-oriented area, you'll notice that the trail is studded with Buddhist shrines.
On this day, we will be acclimatizing. We will, however, be exploring Manang village all day long. We will go to Gangapurna & Ice Lakes in the morning, and the rest of the day will be spent admiring the breathtaking views of Annapurna III, Tilicho, Pisang, and Chulu Peaks. We might go to the Himalayan Rescue Society in Vraja village in the afternoon for a briefing on acute mountain sickness, its signs and symptoms, and how to avoid it.
We move Yak Kharka after spending a day in and around Manang to allow our body to adjust to the high elevation and get some rest. To get to Tenki village, we first cross a creek and ascend. After that, we leave Marshyangdi Valley and travel to Jar Sang Khola Valley in the northwest. The trail gradually climbs as we move north.
A number of pastures and juniper woodlands will be encountered along the way. We will travel through the small village of Gunsan on our way farther in the trip, where the homes have flat mud roofs. Yak and horse pastures will also be seen. On a wooden bridge, we cross a little river and go up the breathtaking valley to Yak Meadow, an open, tranquil meadow.
Today, we travel to Thorong Phedi, the base of the Thorong La pass. We will ascend to a peak from Yak Kharka, descend, and then use a wooden bridge to cross the Marsyangdi river. We ascend the mountain, take a winding path over a cliff, and then drop to Thorung Phedi. In contrast to the lush lowlands, we passed on the way up during the first part of the hike, the desolate, craggy terrain seems unearthly and quite different.
The walk from Thorong Phedi (4,525m/14,525ft) to Muktinath Temple (3,760m/12,623ft) across the Thorung La high pass (5,416m/17,756ft) will be spectacular on this day. The highest point of the walk and one of the highest passes in the world, Thorong La Pass, is also one of the most difficult sections of the trail.
The vistas from the pass are absolutely worth the early start and exertion in the chilly air and high altitude. We will view a panorama of magnificent Himalayan peaks to the north, toward Tibet, and to the rear, the Annapurna range.
We then make our way down to Muktinath, a Buddhist and Hindu holy site. Muktinath is known by the Buddhists as Chumig.
After seeing Muktinath Temple in the morning, we continue on to Tatopani by taking a local bus. The route travels through some of the world's deepest canyons, making it a challenging drive. The dry highlands will give way to lush, verdant woods. Tatopani is well-known for its natural hot springs, and it is a location where we may unwind by soaking in them. According to legend, Tatopani's waters can treat ailments of the skin.
After leaving the hot springs, we go to the east bank of the Kali Gandaki River and climb to Ghorepani past the Sikha and Chitre Thakali villages. Our journey passes through verdant forests with rhododendron, birch, and magnolia trees as well as terraced farmlands with mountains all around. We'll spend the night at the lovely village of Ghorepani, which is perched on a ridge.
Our time on the trail will come to an end today. Early in the morning, we go up to Poon Hill (3,210 meters) to see the sunrise over the entire Annapurna and Dhaulagiri massif, which includes Mt. Machhapuchhre (Fishtail). Because of the breathtaking vistas it provides, Poon Hill is one of the most popular locations for photography. We'll take as many photos as we want and then head back to our Ghorepani lodge for breakfast. We will hike to Birethanti after breakfast before boarding a bus to Pokhara.
The Annapurna Circuit Package expires right now. This morning, we awaken in Pokhara, and after breakfast, we board a tourist bus to return to Kathmandu. The Marsyangdi River is followed for the first 200 km of the course, and then the Trishuli River. You can also decide to take a 25-minute flight from Pokhara back to your starting point (not included in the package). At Kathmandu, our trek package comes to an end.
Trekking Annapurna circuit with Dil
9th September, 2022
Dil is the best guide ever! We did the Annapurna circuit in 16 days and Dil arranged everything (permits, sleeping, eating, transportation etc.).
He was careful with us when we were at high altitudes (taking time for acclimatization and asking multiple times about our well being).
He explained a lot about Nepali culture, religion, and the area we were in, answered all our questions.
When I had a hard time right before the pass, he told me to take it slower and even carried some of my stuff until I felt strong enough again to carry it myself.
Dil was very patient with us when we would occasionally whine ;).
We stayed in great tea house that looked really nice.
In the end, Dil even assembled his phone-made videos into one video with the walking firiri song as a soundtrack! Very cool!
Thank you for this great experience Dil :)
