Day 01: Arrival in Kathmandu [1,300m/4,264 ft] 
Upon arriving in Kathmandu (Tribhuvan International Airport), a Cold Feet representative will meet you and help you transfer to your hotel by private bus. Enjoy a free evening to explore Kathmandu and recover from your jet-lag. Meet the Cold Feet staff during a short pre-tour briefing before dinner.
 
Day 02: Kathmandu – Sightseeing and Trek Preparation
A full-day guided tour around Kathmandu city's historical and cultural landmarks. Visit Bauddhanath Stupa and Pashupatinath Temple, the most important sites of Buddhism and Hinduism in Nepal. Catch the playful antics of the monkeys and beautiful city views at Swayambhunath temple. Get lost in Kathmandu's old city bazaars, public squares, and former royal palaces at Durbar Square.
 
Day 03: Drive Kathmandu to Bandipur
Today after having breakfast in Kathmandu, we drive to Bandipur. Bandipur was the ancient trading route between India and Tibet. It offers magnificent views of Annapurna and Dhaulagiri Himalayan Ranges as well as the picturesque Marshyandi Valley below it. Houses are built with typical Newari style and temples are built in Pagoda style. There is a palace built during Nepal Unification Process by Prithvi Narayan Shah in 1668 B.S. Bandipur is situated in between Kathmandu and Pokhara which is 8 kilometers upon the hill south of Dumre (180 km from Kathmandu) . We will stay at Bandipur overnight.  
 
Day 04: Drive from Bandipur to Syange [1100m/3608 ft]: 8-10 hrs
An early start gets us on the drive to Syange, the starting point of the trek. On the way we see lush green countryside, rivers, villages, farms and beautiful mountain-scapes. The road to Besishahar is tar, thereafter gravel.
 
Day 05: Trek from Syange to Dharapani [1,960m/6,430ft]: 7-8 hrs
A leisurely trekking pace takes us into the Manang district with its fields of barley, rice, potato and pine forests. We pass the village of Kodo and will overnight in Dharapani.
 
Day 06: Trek from Dharapani to Chame [2,710m/8,891ft]: 5-6 hrs
On the way to Chame we climb a few steep, forested ridges and are treated by some of the most sensational mountain views: Lamjung Himal, Annapurna II, and Annapurna IV (7,525m/24,688ft). At our destination a few small hot springs bring relief to our taxed muscles.
 
Day 07: Trek from Chame to Pisang [3,300m/10824ft]: 5-6 hrs
Today we trek higher along a steep and narrow, densely forest path that leads to a rock face that soars 1500m/4,920 ft above the river. We reach at Pisang finally.
 
Day 08: Trek from Upper Pisang to Manang [3,500m/11,482ft]: 6-7 hrs
Out of the two routes to choose, we select the upper one (through Upper Pisang and Geru) where the sceneries are unmatched. Majestic peaks tower all around us are Annapurna, Pisang peak, and several others. As we trek higher the landscape and vegetation change with the colder and dryer environment. It’s not all hard work though, since we will visit the Barge monastery (largest in the district of Manang).
 
Day 09:  Trek from Manang: Acclimatization Day
To allow our body chemistry to change, adapt to the lower levels of oxygen at altitude, this will be an acclimatization day. We will take a few short walks to higher ground. Great detsintions are the Bhojo Gompa, Gangapurna Lake, the Himalayan Rescue Association and even the small old, monastery village of Vraga. This day is important since the next two are challenging with a rapid gain in altitude.
 
Day 10: Trek from Manag to Yak Kharka , 110m/13,484ft]: 3-4 hrs
We climb out of the Marshyangdi Valley toward Jarsang Khola and Ghunsa. We pass a few pastures, a patch of juniper trees, and the flat mud roofs. After crossing a small river, we pass an ancient old Mani wall (religious carvings on stone slabs) before entering the small village of Yak Kharka.
 
Day 11: Trek from Yak Kharka to Thorong Phedi [4,600m/15,092ft]: 3-4 hrs
Thorong Pedi is close to the foot of the pass, Thorong La. This ‘trekker/climber’ village caters to the needs of these adventures souls. Some people hike higher to make the “pass-day” easier and risk contracting Altitude Sickness. We stop here to avoid this and potentially get a better night’s sleep.
 
Day 12: Trek from Thorong Phedi to Muktinath [3,800/12,467ft]: 7-8 hrs
Thorong La (5,416 m/17,769 ft), an unforgettable experience, is clearly the climax of our Annapurna Circuit trek. It is in our grasp today. Yes, we will be huffing and puffing, and at the same time exulting in the experience; our own human performance and the unimaginable majesty of this place that few Westerners see. We reach Muktinath with the setting sun. Muktinath hosts a Vishnu temple and a Buddhist Monastery and is often referred to as an example of the religions harmony in Nepal. 
 
Day 13: Trek from Muktinath to Tatopani [1,200m/3937ft]: 6-8 hrs
Today, we drive along a plateau above the Kali Gandaki – world`s deepest gorge. We will be using the local private jeep of bus to Ghasa and then change another vehicle to Tatopani. The road is gravel and unfortunately rough and dusty. At Tatopani another treat awaits us, and everyone is anxious to relax their weary muscles in one of the hot spring pools. 
 
Day 14: Trek from Tatopani to Ghorepani [2,850m/9,350ft].: 7-8 hrs
The trek to Ghorepani takes us past the Pun Magar villages of Ghara and Sikha and their terraced farmlands, through Phalate and Chitre, and through beautiful rhododendron, birch, and magnolia stands. The surrounding peaks look wonderful, almost ominous, as they tower above.
 
Day 15: Trek from Ghorepani to Poon Hill to Nayapul and then drive to Pokhara 
An early ascent of Poon Hill (3,210m. /10,531ft) takes us to the top to witness a spectacular moment in time:  sunrise over the whole Annapurna and Dhaulagiri massifs. We then return back to our lodge for the breakfast. And then, we trek downhill to Nayapul via Ulleri and Birethanti. We drive to Pokhara from Nayapul, which take approx. an hour and half. 
 
Day 16: Pokhara City Sightseeing
Today will be the best day for having tour in Pokhara city. Late morning, we will start our sightseeing of Devi’s Falls, Gupteswor Cave, International Mountain Museum, Seti Gorge, and boating in the Fewa Lake. 
 
Day 17: Drive from Pokhara to Chitwan 
Today, after breakfast, we leave Pokhara around 9 am for Chitwan. After arriving at Chitwan approx 1:30 pm, we will attend the program in the afternoon: Tharu village tour for an hour and half and then in the evening slide presentation about flora and fauna or Tharu culture program.

What Client Say

I have made a trip to Helambu circuit with Cold Feet in March 2009 and had a great time. Our Guide Suman did fantastic job. I will recommend Cold Feet to any of my friends and family who are traveling to Nepal. Tom Manzo Tucson Arizona

November 2013 - I just returned from the most amazing trek to Annapurna Base Camp with ColdFeet! Gopi and his staff were so helpful before I even arrived in Nepal and continue to be during my stay in this amazing country! Sunaina was an awesome, fun and caring guide. I would highly recommend ColdFeet to anyone looking for tours/treks in the Nepal area! jackie o. CANADA

Hey We just came back from a trip to langtang. Organization was very efficient, we planned the trip in two days and just went right away to Langtang! Beautiful place to see, good accommodation and very friendly guide, thanks Coldfeet! Nicolas Lacombe FRANCE

Great trek to Gosainkund lake arranged at short notice by Cold Feet, followed by rafting and cultural visits. We turned up at the desk in Thamel and Gopi organised all the rest for us at very short notice. Great guiding and even evening entertainment with puzzles and tricks. John Edwards turnipedwards@virginmedia.com

Today and yesterday I had an amazing two day sight seeing tour, in Kathmandu, Bhaktapur, Patan and lots of other places, organized by ColdFeet! Unfortunately I could not finish my original trek to ME base camp because I got ill and had to get back. Waiting for my friends, the lovely people from ColdFeet helped me get back on my feet and made my trip - although slightly different as planned - one I won't ever forget en enjoyed very much! So... thanks! Ilona Zwolle, The Netherlands

What I like best about the team at ColdFeet is not only are they knowledgeable guides and leaders, but they have the ability to help you get under the skin and really experience this wonderful country. Not only did we did have a great time trekking the Annapurnas and rafting the Trisuli, but we left Nepal feeling we had made lifelong friends. Tom, South London Tom email.tom.griffin@gmail.com

I am now in my final year at university in England but a few summers back I was lucky enough to be part of a trek adventure in the Everest region organised by ColdFeet. Gopi, who was in charge, lead 50 Wimbledon Explorer Scouts for roughly ten days. The trip was incredibly well organised and we all felt very safe under his and his support staffs' guidance. Not only this but because of Gopi's extensive experience in the region we were really able to make the most of everything that was around us. I would enthusiastically recommend ColdFeet to anyone looking to trek in Nepal, not least because aswell as being professional and reliable all the staff at ColdFeet are friendly and do their upmost to make sure everyone really has fun. I look forward to any opportunity to be in Nepal with ColdFeet again. Oliver Young London

A really great trek, well led and organised by friendly, fun and frankly awesome guides. The most beautiful place I have ever been to. Thanks so much Gopi! Benedict Phillips Streatham Common, London, UK
