Day to Day Itinerary Expand/Collapse All

Day 1 : Arrival at TIA, Kathmandu Nepal (1,350m)

We complete our custom formalities at the Tribhuwan International Airport in Kathmandu. Afterward, there is a Unique Sherpa representative waiting for us at the gate who will take us to our hotel. We can then spend the rest of the day taking a rest. In the evening, we get to try Nepalese cuisine at a welcome dinner.

Day 2 : Preparation for trip and sightseeing in valley

We visit the Unique Sherpa Trek & Expedition office sometime in the afternoon today. At the office, we meet our climbing guide and fellow climbers. Our guide or leader will check our set of equipment in order to make sure that they are in perfect condition for the coming trip. In the short meeting, the Himalayan Sherpa representatives will also help us understand what we can expect throughout the trip so as to make us familiar with our trek. We can spend the rest of the afternoon resting and/or in leisure. Overnight in Kathmandu.

Day 3 : Driving to Dharampani from Kathmandu

We begin our drive to Dharapani after breakfast. It is a long journey via beautiful Nepalese townships. At the beginning of our trip, our trail is alongside the winding Trishuli River. We also pass through Pokhara, popularly known as the Lake City before reaching Dharapani which is one of the biggest villages in the Manang valley. Overnight at Dharapani.

Day 4 : Trek to Chame from Dharapani (1,860m)

Today we negotiate 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 should help us relax for a while. Overnight in Chame.

Day 5 : Trek from Chame to Upper Pisang (3300m)

A narrow steep path through a very dense pine forest will bring us to a dramatic curved rock face, rising 1500m from the river. As the trail opens up, we will be surrounded by Himalayan peaks all the way to Pisang. We ascend around thirty minutes towards a big hill to reach Upper Pisang. Overnight in Upper Pisang.

Day 6 : Acclimatization over Upper Pisang (3,300m)

Today is set aside for acclimatization alone. Spending extra time at a high-altitude location will guarantee that we have a successful trip. We spend the whole day resting and exploring the village. Exploring the village and interacting with the locals will help us get a better glimpse of the local lifestyle. Throughout the day, the views of Annapurna, Gangapurna, and Tilicho are ours to marvel at. Overnight in Upper Pisang.

Day 7 : Trek from Upper Pisang to Pisang Base Camp (4,380m)

We begin our trek after breakfast towards the Pisang Base Camp. We ascend on a trail that passes through a thin forest and grasslands. The pasture is used for grazing yaks and is also the best place to set up our camp. The ground is flat and falls on a frequented trail. Overnight at the Pisang Peak Base Camp.

Day 8 : Pisang Base Camp to High Camp trek (6,091m)

We ascend on the southwest ridge and reach the high camp. After setting up our camp, we participate in basic climbing training. Our guides will provide training on peak climbing techniques and the proper ways of using climbing gears such as the ice ax, climbing boots, crampons, harness, ascender, etc. The training will also include using ropes to go up and down. Although it is not mandatory to have prior training for Pisang Peak climbing, we strongly believe that some training experience will boost your confidence and climbing skills to increase the chances of scaling the summit as well as to fully enjoy the experience. Overnight at Pisang Peak High Camp.

Day 9 : Pisang Peak summit and back to Base Camp

We begin our trek early in the morning after breakfast. Today’s trail will be mostly on rocky surfaces. The peak is steep; therefore, there is not much snow. We will require around 20m of rope to climb on a ridge. Around the summit is around 70 degrees of slope which will require the usage of around 200m rope. Both fixed rope and main rope will be used. The views of the Annapurna ranges and others are extraordinary from the summit. We return to the base camp for an overnight stay.

Day 10 : Contingency

This is a separate day reserved for any contingency. If we are not able to summit the Pisang Peak on the day as planned due to bad weather or any unforeseen event, this day can be used.

Day 11 : Pisang Peak Base Camp to Manang

From the base camp of Pisang peak, we trek towards Pisang village. From Pisang, there are two routes to Manang. We choose the one which passes through Upper Pisang via Geru as it guarantees outstanding views of Mt. Annapurna, Pisang Peak, and others. As we walk near Manang the climate becomes more cold and dry. However, a short visit to Barge Monastery, the biggest monastery in the Manang District should cheer us up. Overnight at Manang.

Day 12 : Manang to Yak Kharka

From Manang village, the trail crosses a stream, climbs to the village of Tenki above Manang, and then continues to climb out of the Marshyangdi Valley turning northwest up the valley of Jarsang Khola. The trail follows this valley northward, passing a few pastures, a scrub of juniper trees, as it steadily gains elevation. The trail further passes near the small village of Ghunsa, a cluster of flat mud roofs just below the trailhead. Now the trail goes through meadows where horses and yaks graze. After crossing a small river on a wooden bridge, the trail passes an ancient old Mani wall in a pleasant meadow and then reaches another small village of Yak Kharka. Small but gradual ascent is the key to avoiding altitude problems.

Day 13 : Yak Kharka to Thorong Phedi

It is an uphill walk to Thorang Phedi. After walking for some time, we cross a suspension bridge and reach Ledar village. We ascend further and pass through towering cliffs before reaching Thorang Phedi, the last village before Thorong La. On this trip, we are rewarded with one of the best views of Mt. Gudang, Mt. Syagang, Thorung Peak, and Mt. Khatungkan. Overnight in Thorang Phedi.

Day 14 : Thorong Phedi to Thorong-La Pass (5,416m) continuing to Muktinath

Crossing Thorong La pass, one of the highest passes in the world will be our ultimate objective today. We will be crossing the pass from east to west (Manang to Muktinath) which is the easiest and safest direction. We get up around three in the morning and walk up the mountain. When we finally make it to the top, we realize that our journey was worth it. We can take a few photos before heading to Muktinath Valley at the foot of the Thorong La pass. We continue trekking to Muktinath which is an important place of pilgrimage for both Hindus and Buddhists. Overnight in Muktinath.

Day 15 : Muktinath to Jomsom

Muktinath is an important pilgrimage site for Buddhists and Hindus alike. In the morning, we tour the temple area and a Buddhist monastery located close to the temple. After the short tour, we continue our trek to Jomsom which is popular for its sweet apples and strong winds. In fact, there are even Nepalese songs that pay tribute to the strong gush of wind that blows in Jomsom around noon. After reaching Jomsom, we can visit its Ecological Museum that provides information on Jomsom’s rich culture as well as the flora and fauna that are native to the valley. Overnight in Jomsom.

Day 16 : Early morning flight back to Pokhara from Jomsom (2,743m)

Today we fly to Pokhara, the lake city on the earliest possible airplane. After checking in at our hotel, we may take a rest or visit the lakeside area in the vicinity of Fewa Lake. Here, we can indulge in buying some souvenirs or sampling some local delicacies. Overnight in Pokhara.

Day 17 : Flight or drive back to Kathmandu

After breakfast, we say goodbye to the beautiful lake city of Pokhara and drive towards Kathmandu. After reaching Kathmandu we have the rest of the day off. There will also be a farewell dinner hosted by Unique sherpa in the evening to celebrate the successful completion of our journey.
