Tour Plan


Welcome to Kathmandu

You will get a visa on arrival after your flight lands at Tribhuwan International Airport. A representative from Mercy Holidays will pick you up and escort you to a hotel. There is a brief orientation meeting after you freshen up. We will then head to the hotel that serves us typical Nepalese cuisines while we enjoy an equally great cultural performance by different ethnicities.

Drive to Ngadi

We will take a jeep to Ngadi via Prithvi Highway. This is the same highway that connects Kathmandu with the beautiful Pokhara highway. However, after we reach Dumre, we will take the right and head to Besisahar. Besisahar is the headquarter of the Lumjung district. This is when the offroad drive starts and lasts for about 1.5 hours. This takes us to Ngadi. Overnight in Ngadi.

Ngadi to Bahundada to Ghermu Phant to Jagat

The motorway from Ngadi extends downwards. However, we will take the trekking trail which is a gentle uphill climb instead. About 2 hours of trekking takes us to Bahundada. Bahundada is a beautiful settlement of the Bahun (Brahmin) community. The scenery is amazing from here. We will then gradually descend for about 30 minutes, followed by an hour of flat walking to finally reach Ghermu Phant. Ghermu Phant is a flat settlement that is fertile for crops like wheat, maize, and other vegetables. On your left, you will see a 111 m-long glorious waterfall. We will cross a suspension bridge that is just in front of the waterfall and resume the trek. We will then follow the motorway to reach Jagat. Throughout the entire trek, the gorging river Mashyangdi is on our lower right. Overnight in Jagat.

Jagat to Tal to Dharapani

After breakfast in the morning, we will leave Jagat and head to reach Dharapani. After a brief walk, you will witness numerous hives of wild bees. You will also pass through countless waterfalls along the trail. All in all, this day is a beautiful one because of all these wonders of nature. We will then leave the motorway and join the old trekking trail. After we reach the Sattale village, we will have a hard climb that will last around 30 minutes. This will finally bring us to a place called Tal. Tal is a settlement that is at a lower elevation than the surrounding landscape. Because of this, the river Marshyangdi slows down and the water collects which is why this place is named Tal (Lake). The trail crosses the river Marshyangdi in more than one place. The trail will finally bring us to Dharapani where we will spend the night.

Trek to Chame

Depending on which orientation you choose, Dharapani is an entry or the end of another trekking route: the Manaslu Circuit Trekking. We will pass through Bagarchhap--a landslide-prone area--and reach Timing Village. Timing is a settlement area from which the peaks Dhaulagiri and Nilgiri are especially beautiful. You will now follow a flat trail through the jungle, occasionally passing through settlements and reaching Chame. Chame is the headquarter of the Manang district. This is where we will spend the night. Additionally, there is a hot spring about 3 minutes hike away from our lodge. You might choose to go and bath in this natural hot water spring.

Trek to Pisang

Early morning breakfast should prepare you for the day. We will reach Bhratang after about 1.5 hours of starting the trek. Bhratang is also known as apple heaven because of the enormous scale of apple farming (Bhratang Apple Farm spans 735 Ropanis). The apples grown here are of high quality, and most of the production is exported abroad. The route then leads us further to a place where Pangdi Danda is visible. It is a humongous rock formation that rises 150 m higher than the river surface. This is certainly a spectacular view on our right. You will then follow a zigzag route to reach Dhikur Pokhari. We will then follow an upper path leaving the motorway and reach Upper Pisang. Upper Pisang is an old settlement comprised of a monastery. A short descent will bring us to Lower Pisang. Overnight in Pisang.

Trek to Manang

There is a lower but shorter route to Manang from Pisang. However, we will follow a longer upper route. Now, there are several reasons for this. The first one is that the view is significantly better from the higher trail. Second, trekking through higher elevations will enable the body to acclimatize to higher elevations so you don’t encounter problems during the later days. However, the downside is that the trail is a steep climb until we reach Ghyaru. Needless to say, the view from the top is serene, almost as if the mountains are at palm reach. We will Ngawal for lunch. After lunch, we will gradually descend and reach Braga, a place decorated with an ancient monastery. You might want to explore if we have time to kill. A plain route will take us to Manang. Overnight.

Acclimatization in Manang

This day is allocated to acclimatize and rest for the upcoming days. The place where we stay is at an elevation of 3,500m. There is a rule in the mountains to walk high but sleep low. This is done to ensure that your body is subjected to an even more difficult altitude than where you sleep. Thus, we will climb a cliff to the north of Manang. There is a Gompa habituated by a single monk. We can sit and listen to the monk if you are interested. The view from the Gompa is fantastic, with the beautiful settlement of Manang below, the Gangapurna Lake, and the elaborate Mountain range to the west. We will then descend to our lodge for lunch. After lunch, you are free to roam around. In the evening, we will go and explore Gangapurna lake from close. This lake originates from the Gangapurna glacier. Return to the lodge and spend the night.

Trek to Yak Kharka and overnight at either Yak Kharka or Ledar

We will start our trek in the morning to reach Yak Kharka by lunch through Tengi village and Ghusang. The treeline ends and we will slow down our pace. You deserve a brief rest after lunch before we ascend to a higher elevation for acclimatizing. Back to hotel at Yak Kharka and night stay.

Trek to Phedi and overnight at either Phedi or Thorongla High Camp

The trail continues north to a place that is the origin of the river Marshyangdi. The alpine landscape is a tough one to master, and we will reach a place with a teashop for a tea break. The remaining trail is undulating and is landslide-prone, because of which you will have to be extra careful to watch out for eroding landmass and boulders. We will finally reach Phedi. Overnight at either Phedi or High Camp, which is 35 minutes away from Phedi. Since tomorrow is a big day, your guide will brief you on a few important things before you sleep.

Trek to Muktinath through Thorongla Pass

Our hike starts early, preferably at 4 am. You will bring your head torch to use. The trail is an uphill climb initially, and although the route levels up in the later part, the journey is already too much for many trekkers. Nevertheless, you should give your best to reach Thorongla pass by 9 am. This is because it is windy during the day and hence the trail gets even tougher. Thorongla Pass is the highlight of the entire trip, and you will witness a 360 degrees view of the snow-capped mountains. Trekkers and travelers hang prayer flags. You might want to click a picture with the stone carving there with the name and elevation of the place on it. The trail then descends and the downward slope continues till we reach the bottom of the hill. It is time to eat something hot and rest briefly. The descent continues and we reach Muktinath. However, we will not visit the sacred temple of Muktinath today yet. After a descent of 5 more minutes, we will reach a small settlement, RaniPauwa. Overnight in RaniPauwa.

Trek to Marpha

You will explore the Muktinath temple after breakfast. It takes a 5-minute hike from our hotel to reach this sacred temple of both the Hindus and the Buddhists. There is a religiously held belief that people will get liberation (Mukti) after bathing in the 108 water sprouts (also called cow-head taps). The human-size statue of Lord Vishnu is held with great belief. Moreover,
