As this is the capital city of Nepal, people live together  from different walk of life and ethnic communities. After a breakfast, we start our guiding tour to UNESCO heritage sites; Kathmandu Durbar square, Monkey temple and Bouddhanath stupa; the major Buddhist sites.

Day 03:  Drive from Kathmandu to Syange (1100m)

En route to Syange, we get to enjoy the countryside of Nepal with its green hills, winding rivers, terraced farms and of course the mighty Himalayas. After passing several villages on the banks of the river and paddy fields we get Besi Sahar, a small commercial centre. From here we head to Syange which is another 2 hours journey by an jeep.

We also come across small hot springs which will be a sweet respite from the tiring trek and help us relax for a while. Chame is the headquarters of Manang District.

Day 05 :  Chame to Pisang (3185m), 5-6 hours

Today we walk a few steep, forested ridges along with several landslides on route to Chame. We should not forget to look up though, as we will be greeted with remarkable views of Lamjung Himal, Annapurna II, and Annapurna IV (7,525m). We also come across small hot springs which will be a sweet respite from the tiring trek and help us relax for a while. Chame is the headquarters of Manang District..

Day 06 :  Pisang to Manang (3540m), 5-6 hours

We start to hike through the drier upper section of Manang district. There are two trails on leaving Pisang, we will hike the lower easier route or if you are fit enough we will take the more scenic high route. The lower route takes an undulating route through Hongde (3,325m), which has an airstrip and then onwards through Mungji village to finish at the rather large village of Manang. Here Mani wheels and prayer flags abound and you are surrounded by the incredible mountain vista of the Annapurnas.

Day 07 :  Acclimatization at Manang

We spend our time visiting monastery, side trip to Gangapurna Lake and doing some excursions with the wonderful views around the villages. If we have the energy, we can even hike to Vraga Village where we can visit the Himalayan Rescue Association which will give us some idea about Acute Mountain Sickness (AMS).

Day 08 :  Manang to Leder (4200m), 4-5 hours

We start our walk after the breakfast and start climbing uphill to Tengi, and 120 meters above Manang. Furthermore we traverse past Marshyangdi Valley turning north-west up the valley of the Throng Khola and continue further to Gunsang (3960 m). This is a small mountain hamlet with houses that have flat roofs made up of mud. We walk through picturesque meadows and rich forests of barberry, juniper etc. On the way we encounter horses and yaks grazing. This whole scene depicts the picture postcard perfection also renowned as Yak Kharka.

Day 09:  Leder to Chulu West Base Camp (4900m), 4-5 hours

Today, we continue our trekking from Leder to Chulu West Base Camp. From the Base Camp, we can enjoy the views of Annapurna Himalayas. We may also like to discover the surrounding areas. At this point, we will set up our camp for overnight stay.

Day 10:   Chulu West base camp to camp I (5100m), 4-5 hours

From the Chulu Base Camp, we continue hiking towards Camp I. The route is not that technical. But it would be better to remember that we are climbing on high altitudes. At this juncture we relish the magnificent views of Annapurna and Dhaulagiri mountains including Manaslu, Gangapurna and Lamjung Himal.

Day 11:  Rest & Acclimatization at Camp I

Today will be the rest and acclimatization day at Camp I. While we rest at camp I, the climbing leaders and other staffs make way to Camp II and supply the equipments for the camp. Later, they return back to Camp I. We may rest and if interested walk around Camp I.

Day 12:  Camp I to Camp II (5,530m), 4-5 hours

We leave camp I and continue climbing the rock band to Camp II. The route is not that technical but we may have to use ropes, crampon, and ice-axe. We set up Camp II at 5,530m /18,143ft. Some visitors also attempt the summit directly from Camp I. However, since the climb is relatively straightforward from the Camp II until the summit, we make an overnight stay at Camp II for proper rest and acclimatization.

Day 13:   Summit Chulu West (6419m/21,055ft) and back to Camp (I), 9-10 hours

It is our summit day, and it is going to be long day. Therefore, we would wake up much earlier today. Each moment we have to work hard through the icy high-altitude trail but the outstanding high Himalayan scenes are such tempting that our eyes love to watch more over the horizon than on our trail. After summiting, we return back to Camp I.

Day 14:   Camp I to Leder: 5 - 6 hrs

From Camp I, our return path descends all the way to Leder. While descending, we enjoy the panoramic views of the Annapurnas and other peaks. We make our overnight stay at Leder and celebrate the summiting of Chulu West Peak.

Day 15:  Leder to Thorong Phedi (4450m/14,596), 3-4 hours

We climb gradually to a ridge before descending to the headwaters of the Marsyangdi and crossing via a covered wooden bridge. After a short ascent up the mountain path on the right bank, we follow a narrow trail across an unstable scree slope then descend to Thorung Phedi. Blue sheep and even snow leopards can be sometimes seen in this valley.

Day 16:  Thorong Phedi - Thorong Pass (5416m/17,765ft) - Muktinath (3,800)

Crossing Thorong La pass, one of the highest passe in the world is our main destination of this trek. Problems may occur due to the altitude and the most recent snow which can often make the crossing impossible. It takes about four hours to climb up to the pass marked by chortens and prayer flags. As we reach the top, you will be rewarded by the magnificent view of the entire terrain and massive Himalayas. We can take a few photos before heading to Muktinath valley. Muktinath is an important pilgrimage site for both Hindus and Buddhist in the country.Then drive to Jomsom.

Day 17:  Jomsom to Pokhara by flight

Today early in the morning we will be taking the most scenic mountain flight from Pokhara to Jomsom. We will be flying through a gorge between Annapurna and Dhaulagiri mountains. We will have really thrilling lifetime flying experience 25 min above incredible mountains.
