Besides that, the hikers who wish to walk the Annapurna downhill after seven passes hiking route then follow the below travel plan.1 Day Arrival at Kathmandu valley
Upon arrival at Tribhuwan International Airport, receive you with a private vehicle and transfer to the hotel in Thamel. The accommodation is on a bed with a breakfast plan. Permit arrangements. Our representative will brief you on the Seven passes trek Annapurna programs.
Early morning, the guide will come to pick you up at your hotel at 6.00 am in the morning. Taxi ride to Gongabu Bus station to catch a coach to Besi Sahar. Kathmandu to Besisahar distance is 185-kilo meters and takes about 7 hours bus ride. The journey passes several impressive hills and valleys including the view of the snowy mountains.
Later Lunch at Besi Sahar, we take a local jeep (passenger collection basis) to Chamje passing Syange waterfall. While riding the Jeep, tourists can see a waterfall and hot spring on Marsyangdi Riverside. Jagat is another bigger village that offers basic to comfort lodges but we continue our journey to Chamje.
The trail today continues countering the hill after crossing the small bridge all the while getting a glance of a jeep passing on the other end beyond the Marshyangdi River. We choose to tramp through the classical trail to touch Tal waterfall. Tal is a beautiful village situated on the bank of the Marshyangdi River and stays with trekkers’ lodges. Spending roughly 2 hours, the mountain trail leads us to Kroto village. Ascending some other hours, we reach Nache village. Nache is a village situated on a hilltop with around only 40 households and a few homestays.
Wake early morning to capture a glimpse of Annapurna and Manaslu. Later breakfast, descend towards Alubari passing Pine trees and tiny YAK trails that are made by the local shepherds.
Our hike ascends across the Dona river, with the two steep cliffs as we continue up to Dharmasala. Himalayan Langur monkeys, Ghoral, Thar, and Himalayan Griffon animals are seen on a clear weather day along the journey. In addition, Nomads can watch the impressive mount Manaslu’s super view during their staying here. Dharmasala is a truly amazing inhabitant of the pasturelands of the Marshyangdi basin.
Walk to Dona Lake through the multiple colorful rhododendron forest. Hike the frigid Lake, the highlight of the day tour with added mount Manaslu superior view and a large cave. Visit Dona lakeside and return to Dharmasala to stay overnight.
The present walk today is again exceptionally delightful. Nature’s path goes through the rhododendrons forests with dazzling perspectives on Annapurna II, Lamjung Himal, and Manaslu. After two or three hours of a hike through the timberland, we pass Kapribai Cave. About one hour hike, we reach Kyudanda Cave. Continue our journey over a field encompassed by mountains and proceed towards Bijay Phedi stream to set up our camping.
The journey today is tough, so we start early morning to get Tripple pass, the highest point. Campers can see an excellent view of Annapurna II, Lamjung Himal, and Kangaru Himal, with lake Dona in the valley underneath. Towards the far west, we can see the pinnacles of Anapurna III and furthermore Tilicho top. In the wake of investing some energy at the high pass, a 5-hour steep plummet starts through a woodland, right until we arrive at Gho hamlet. The path isn’t obvious and at places, it is extremely steep making it possibly deceptive. We need to walk intimately with the gathering during this slide.
Gho is a tiny stop on around Manaslu trail for certain lodges. There are extraordinary perspectives on the western substance of Manaslu mountain. Several hour’s trips following Dudh Khola will carry us to Tilche, a Gurung and Ghale residence, where the hiking groups will stop for lunch. After 3 hours of a ramble, we reach Tachai. Tachai is an extremely pleasant rural village with terraced farmlands and excellent conventional houses. The excursion today is around 9 kilometers including rambling and climbing.
We walk passing water factory and it’s terraced ranches where we can frequently run over Langurs. After the terraced ranches, the path climbs steeply up the tall verdant inclines and shrubberies. A couple of spots request to get down on the ground. After some hours of ascends, we arrive at an edge from where voyagers can achieve the best viewpoint of Annapurna, Lamjung, and Manaslu.
The hiking path today is long. Annapurna II and Lamjung Himal take off up towards the eastern sky en route. We climb a risky path in the middle of 2 monster rocks going about as an entryway. The entire rambling journey is genuinely compassionate with a delicate move up a valley that extends up as we pull closer.
The trip starts with a sensitive soaring and soon we cross short steep sections until we appear at the bottom of Kuchumro pass. About 90 minutes hike leads up Kuchumro Pass. Tourists can view the best of the Annapurna mountain range from the highest point of Kuchumro la. After the pass, we drop on a simple and delicate downhill and again leap on a delicate slope to cross the Yarcha pass.
During the rainstorm season, crowds of sheep, goats, and yaks are brought here for grazing. There are little safe huts here for the herders. Locals have teemed this valley who come to gather the most costly spice on the planet, “Yarcha Gumba”, The Himalayan Viagra!. The cost of a kilogram of Yarcha Gumba (Himalayan viagra) brings up to US$ 50,000 in the global market. Late examinations have shown that Yarcha Gumba helps to fix dysfunctions in the lungs and kidneys. This is really a caterpillar that is assaulted by spores and kills the host and develops as a mushroom from the dead caterpillar. Likewise, we set up our campsite at Kang Guru Himal Base Camp.
The path follows the shape at the mountain edge fundamentally the lower part of Kang Guru peak. The excursion today is around 12 kilometers with a mindblowing splendid journey. En route, the local people assembled a path on a practically inconceivable steep side of the cliff. They have in a real sense crushed tree signs into the mass of the mountainside and over it, rocks are laid to take away. Despite the fact that the path looks not really encouraging, it is in reality quite amazing as stacked yak trains stroll across this path during the Yarcha Gumba picking season.
Today, the path wanders along the edge passing a portion of the one-of-a-kind, bright Tibetan Buddhist chortens that Nar and Phu are well known for. The hiking route is simple after the form and is set apart by tremendous states of exceptionally old juniper trees and beautiful shrubberies at the edges. This day specifically is extremely delighted with gigantic blanketed tops toward the East and an emotionally dry scene toward the west and north. Chyaku is a huge rural field where they develop grain and potatoes and maintain goats and sheep.
An hour stroll from Chyaku carries us to another delightful Khampa settlement called Kyang. Wonderful perspectives on the Annapurna II, emotional stone bluffs, and the delightful Khampa settlement of the sheepherders make this spot incredibly beautiful. After Kyang the path enters a thin crevasse and is sliced through close to the vertical stone massif. About 2 hours journey across these picturesque gullies and canyons, trekkers climb steeply through sensational stone arrangements to the Phu passage. The hikers can see the village itself, the old “dzong” (Tibetan-style fortification), and the remaining parts of two demolished fortresses, amazingly arranged on the flatlands before the town.
Phu is perhaps the remotest town of the Himalayas. The set of experiences is gone back 900 years and various contentions between the Tibetans and individuals of Phu have been recorded. A multi-day rambling and climbing journey from this town take you to the Tibetan boundary. In addition, Phu is a gateway to enter Mustang via the Saribung pass.
As an acclimatization day, holidaymakers can investigate the townspeople who are seen turning their yak and sheep fleece, ladies weaving floor coverings from yak fleece, beating mustard seeds into the glue for oil, or approaching their other everyday errands. We will scale to the highest point of the town for stunning perspectives on Mt. Kang Guru and Himlung Himal. In the early evening, curious campers could visit the Tashi Lakhang Monastery.
The path leads into a domain that is natural just to the neighborhood yak herders who put in a couple of months here throughout the mid-year for Yak grouping. The path climbs consistently from Phu right to the highest point of the phu pass (5,050m). We jump on a delicate inclination pass at 4680m to a Yak field where we fix our campsite to stay overnight.
The path begin to climb consistently on a free rock making the ascension harder. About 4 hour’s hike the path leads to Nar Pass at 5,400 meters. The perspectives are remunerating with a 360-degree view of Annapurna II, III, and IV, Lamjung, and to the extent Tilicho Peak toward the south, and Himlung, Nemjung, and Kang Guru Himal toward the east. After a pass, we plummet steeply again on a free rock trail several hours will carry us to Nar. Today’s venture is around 13 kilometers that need to complete.
Nar is a delightful town with interconnected houses similarly as in Phu. As we stroll past the town and think back, the town of Nar looks wonderful chose an evened-out terraced ranch with Kang Guru as a background. Two hours of easy hikes will carry us to Kang La Phedi, where there are two coffee bars.
Today is a difficult day that we need to complete 13 kilometers distance over the high mountain Kang La pass. The trail climbs progressively not very steep at the outset towards the high pass. Just before the pass, we need to climb steeply on a curve trail until we arrive at the highest point at Kang La. Excursionists can get amazing views of Mount Annapurna II, Gangapurna, and Tilicho Peak all above 7000 meters. The path down gets going steep on the drained legs after the sublime downhill. There are delightful stone arrangements along the hiking route, pass Milarepa caves before we arrive at Ngawal, on the upper Pisang trek route of the Annapurna Circuit. Milerepas are Buddhists who are yogis and artists who deny the world and live in caves to contemplate and compose sonnets that dispense the more profound implications of life. We show up at Ngawal in the late evening and stay at a moderately current and delightful guest house with wifi, sweltering showers and agreeable beds, and delectable food. It is a decent hotel to unwind in the wake of a tedious day’s walk.For the individuals who need to proceed with this trip to cross either Mesokanto La Pass across the glacial lake Tilicho or Thorong la pass hike and end the journey in Jomsom, they will follow the accompanying travel plan.
Tourists can check out their holiday style either hiking over Thorong la or Mesokanto la. Otherwise, we walk downhill through an extremely picturesque trail at the edge of the valley towards Pisang bridge. Amazing perspectives on the Annapurna II and III rule the horizon towards the south face. Upper Pisang is a wonderful customary town with bee colony cluster houses, firmly identified with Tibetan design. Around 8-kilo meters journey brings us down to Dhikur Pokhari.

Seven Passes Trek Review
7 Passes Trek with Gokyo Agency
Ammar Raj Guni is a perfect and very reliable agent for arranging your trekking. He has also much experience as a guide, so he always knows where he is talking about. His prices are really competitive.
His calculations were transparent, our trek was some days longer than arranged, but in the end, we got no unexpected costs. He works with local people from the small villages and he treats them very socially. So during the two days, we stayed at his house, we felt very comfortable. I strongly recommend his agency if you’re visiting Nepal. – Johannes and Rico, Tirol, Austria.
