Tour Details

Trip Highlights

  • One of the 10 most beautiful trekking in the world
  • The detour to Tilicho Lake for a better acclimatization
  • The great diversity of villages and scenery
  • A Jomosom- Pokhara flight to avoid the newly constructed road

This is probably the most famous and iconic trek in Nepal, leading you through a wondrous landscape that varies dramatically from day to day. You’ll explore the Marsyandi valley and its beautiful peaks — Manaslu, Annapurna and Gangapurna — before crossing the Thorong Pass en route to the Kali Gandaki valley. Here, you’ll witness one of the world’s deepest gorges, nestled between giant mountains, with the Annapurnas and Nilgiris towering on one side and the Dhaulagiri peaks rising majestically on the other. This is a magical route featuring off-the-beaten-track side trips, including an acclimatization day by the magnificent blue lake of Tilicho.
