Overview

Thorong-la pass of Annapurna circuit trekking is one of the most trekked high passes in the Himalaya. This trek starts from the small village of Dharapani which is reached after driving 10 hours from Kathmandu. The trek follows the Marshyangdi River Valley which drains the terraced paddy fields of the mid hills region of the country. Gradually, the trek reaches the alpine zone of Manang Valley, known in ancient Tibetan religious books as Nyshang. The valley is squeezed between the majestic peaks of Annapurna I (8091 meters) Manaslu (8516 meters), Pisang (6091m), Himluang (7120m) and many other sky soaring peaks. The most challenging day of the trek is the climb to the Thorong-la Pass (5416m) which connects Manang Valley with Kaligandaki valley on the other side. Just below the Pass we see Muktinath, a site held sacred by both Hindus and Buddhists alike. You may see pilgrims who have arrived from Pokhara to visit this holy spot, a cultural highlight of the trip. Previously, we would continue on to Pokhara, but now there is a road connecting Jomsom to Pokhara and regular flights from Jomsom. We will take a plane to Pokhara from Jomsom. Before the roads penetrated to these hidden valleys the Thorong-la pass trek would take three weeks but now it’s possible to do in shorter times. Thorong-la pass trek we have planned here still has few days walk near or on the road but we wanted to keep the itinerary this way so that, even it’s on the road the route is pleasant and worth walking. We can customize the itinerary as per your time and need.
