Are you looking to lose weight? If so we have an absolutely fantastic plan for you where you would enjoy the best scenery in the world and not just walk but walk to lose weight. The trek is intended for 30 days and you start slow but towards the end you traverse through one of the highest landmarks and by the time you come to an end of the trek you will have lost 15 - 20 pounds. It's more of a weight loss camp and surely it is a trek on Nepal’s one of the most surreal trails.
This weight loss vacation combines two famous treks in Nepal. The treks include Annapurna circuit which is one of the classic treks, followed by the Everest three pass treks. Annapurna is comparatively easy and acclimatizes you pretty well for Everest. On the other hand, the trek also introduces you with beautiful settlements along the trail, which would help you forget the initial hardship of the trail. By the end of trek you would lose over 7 pounds of weight already and feel nimble. Furthermore, once your feet gets used to it Everest will push you off the limit and help you lose over 15 pounds of weight and sometime up to 25. There is no simpler way to get rid of the extra pounds other than losing weight by walking on the most serene and focused ambiance.
You will follow a strict diet all the way and although the menu would offer a variety of meal. The team would include a doctor who would regularly monitor your health all the way, a guide who would guide you on the mountains and make necessary arrangements and assistant guides who would further ensure the safety and security of the trek. Before you enroll the trek it is very important for us to know your health conditions. You will further have to send your recent medical reports of blood pressure, blood sugar and hemoglobin. You can send the reports at firstname.lastname@example.org to book the trek today!

Kathmandu – Beshi Sahar – Khudi (1100m/3,609m) 5 hours, 2 hours
We should have our breakfast early in the morning in order to leave Kathmandu by 8:00 a.m and board our vehicle early. If you are acquainted with the Nepalese terrain you will not think for another second to pull your camera out, as the bus ride is equally enthralling. We make our way through one of the prime highways, with major tributaries Trishuli and Marsyangdi never leaving our way one after another. By the time we reach Besisahar it is around 2 p.m in the afternoon. In case of public vehicle we usually make a transfer at this very point for Khudi.
Khudi - Sirung (1,854m/4,692ft) 6- 7 hours
If we make it to Khudi we can enjoy couple of things - one getting refreshed on the banks of Marshyangdi and second taking opportunity to soak ourselves in the natural hot spring. On this very first day walking on the lush green hills, we will see the mountains in the Annapurna in the distance. This route is less populous and very tranquil. The lush green forest of pine and orchid is home to some rare species of birds. It is as well advised to keep your eyes open for snow leopards. It is mostly an uphill walk on the very first day to cover 1000 meters. Overnight in Sirung.
Sirung - Chamje
We leave behind the rice terrace of Sirung and embark on the trail that traverses through subtropical forest and ferns. This forest is well known for housing beautiful species of birds. In between we usually stop at Syange for lunch, before scaling to Jagat. After Jagat we make another ascend for almost an hour to reach Chamje. Overnight at Chamje.
Chamje – Dharapani(1,860m/6,102ft) 5 - 6 hrs
Places Visited: Dharapani
We leave the small yet beautiful, cliffside village of Chamje early. Soon you will realize this section of the trek is very beautiful and on a clear day you will enjoy walking through the forest. The lush green hills on this section houses beautiful and rare species of migrant birds, waterfall, barren cliffs and plenty of bee hives. After few tough incline we reach Tal which also the entry village to Manang district but very busy. Tal has hefty amount of teahouses and we usually stop here for our lunch. After Tal the trail has couple of stiff and couple of easy incline until Dharapani. Overnight at Dharapani.
Dharapani – Chame(2,670m/8,760ft) 5 - 6 hrs
Places Visited: Chame
From Dharapani the trail is technical and strenuous as we ascent fair amount of altitude within 5-6 hours of time. Immediately outside Dharapani we notice sparse trees and barren cliffs and less greener. Initially we make our way through the forest of blue pine, spruce, hemlock, maple and oak. The trail is steep, narrow and we stroll on the trails through landslide prone region as well. This section of the Annapurna Circuit Trek offers a beautiful view of the Annapurna Massif. After the first half of today’s trek the trail gets more gradual and the inclines are somewhat easier. Once we make it to Chame we can as well rejoice the small hot springs. Overnight in Chame.
Chame – Pisang(3,200m/10,500ft) 5 - 6 hrs
Places Visited: Pisang
We make 600m ascents from Chame to Pisang within 4-6 hours. The first couple of hours we walk on crisply pine scented trail. We go past the deserted village of Bhartang where trekkers stop by for tea. Further down the trail, we go past apple orchard and furthermore the memorial of Japanese trekker who died in the avalanche trying to cross Thorung La. With the transitory view of Manaslu, Annapurna II, Himchuli and Ngadi Chuli, we make our way through Tibetan communities and beautiful manis; prayer apparatus of Buddhist followers and fields of Buckwheat. Overnight in Pisang.
Pisang – Manang (3,540m/11,614ft) 6 - 7 hrs
Places Visited: Manang
Today we leave early in the morning after breakfast, to ascent 600 meters through a mediocre difficult trail. From the very first day Marsyangdi river never leaves the trail and does the same for this day. We start strolling on a relatively flat ground in the beginning and then gradually climb upwards. The first noticeable village on this day is Humde - the only village in Manang with airport. After crossing Humde the landscape gets more barren but the views get more better. The views of Annapurna III and IV on one hand and the barren cliffs on the other is captivating. We usually stop for lunch in Mungi. one and half hours easy uphill walk after lunch we make it to Manang. We traverse through various terrain and through the fields of buckwheat, barley and potato and pine. On this day we make our way through remarkable Kani’s (gate) to rustic settlements of Tibetan community namely Manange. Overnight in Manang.
Places Visited: Manang
Activities: Side Trips and Acclimatization
Today is set aside as acclimatization where we will rest and adapt to the altitude. We have an opportunity to walk around and observe the life and culture of Manang-pa; people of Manang, explore the archaic monasteries and thangkas that dates back to some 500 years, we would also hike short for a glacial lake named Gangapurna. Manang also has hotels and restaurants, which would cater fix for your desires to have coffee and bakery.
Manang – Yak Kharka(4,018m/13,182ft) 3 - 4 hours
The hike gets strenuous from this day onwards because of the altitude and kicking in of thin air and it is advised to drink more water. On this day we ascent somewhere around 500 meters and we do not descend at all but we make our way through one of the most amazing view of Annapurna on our south. We reach Khangsar by 2 and half hour and immediately after Khangsar we climb a sheer uphill to Yak Kharka. We walk through Tengi; the last permanently inhabited village in Manang and make our way through pastures and miniature forest of Juniper, roses and barberry to Yak Kharka. We stay overnight at Yak kharka and enjoy yak cheese and dishes made out of Yak.
Yak Kharka – Thorung High Camp(4,450m/14,600ft) 4 – 5 hours
Places Visited: Thorung High Camp
From what looks like an old cowboy town of Yak Kharka we get ready for strenuous hike of 600+ meters, which includes some steep and sheer trails up and down hill. The first initial climb of two and half hours is painstaking but however the surreal view of the surrounding, blue ships and wild Yaks will help you forget all that. Furthermore we keep inclining through narrow and barren trails exposed to the slopes and crossing the wooden bridge we make to Thorung phedi. There are very few pine plants towards the Yak Kharka end but towards the Thorung high camp the land is more barren and the only plant seen is silver birch. Thorung phedi is a valley, which is not inhabited year around but offers a very uncanny view of surrounding cliffs and mountains in the Annapurna. We hike uphill further for an hour until we reach Thorung High pass where we rest for the night and acclimatize before we ascent to Thorung-La pass.
Thorung Phedi – Thorung La – Muktinath (4:00 am and out by 5:00 am) (3760m/12,336ft) 5 -6 hours
We rise and shine early and head out of Thorung Phedi for the longest day of Annapurna circuit trek. Furthermore, this is the most difficult section of the trek but equally beautiful that helps us forget all the slogging and hard work. Most of the day’s walk is sheer and uphill, on barren cliffs with wild Yaks. The initial climb from Thorung Phedi connects with Thorung high camp and further around 3 hours of uphill, we would reach Thorung la. The main idea behind starting the day early is to make sure that we cross Thorung – La pass before the sun is up and at its best. We ascent 650+ meters to Thorung – la which is one of the highest passes in the world, from where the view of the mountains in the periphery is as well of the premier quality. From Thorung – La we make a sheer drop 1600 meters toward the holy shrine of Muktinath.
Muktinath – Marpha(2,670m/8,727ft) 7 – 8 hours
From Muktinath we further descend down to Jharkot and watch Kagbeni from the ridge and make our way towards Jomsom. We take jeep track all the way to Jomsom; a beautiful mountain settlement placed on the laps of Nilgiri Mountain. Jomsom also has an air strip which serves the entire region on everyday basis. Further down on jeep track dodging it time and again we reach Marpha. Marpha is famous for its apple orchards and apple brandy distillery and also homes one of the oldest distilleries in the country. Marpha is the center of Thakali community, which is famous for making apple cider and apple pie amongst trekkers.
Marpha – Kalopani(2,530m/8,300ft) 5 – 6 hours
Places Visited: Kalopani
We start early on this day and we trek easy jeep trail along one of the major tributaries Kaligandaki. We stroll through 2 remarkable settlements of Tukuche and Larjung until we reach Kalopani. On this day we make a transition from arid landscape to lush green knolls.
Kalopani – Tatopani(1,190m/3,904ft) 5 - 6 hours
Places Visited: Tatopani
We further head downward and majority of the trail include unfrequented jeep track. From Ghasa we enter the district of Myagdi from Mustang. The inevitable attraction of this section in Annapurna circuit trek is the 3rd largest waterfall named Rupse, in Dana. Finally we make it to Tatopani which mean hot water; this place holds one of the best natural hot springs. Usually trekkers are found enjoying this natural hot springs after a long aching trip.
Tatopani - Beni - Pokhara (6-7 hours)
Since most of the walking has to be don on the newly opened jeep track and on a very rugged trail, we opt to take bus. The bus through the off road from this point onward is very thrilling and not very dangerous. We reach Beni in around 1 and half hours and make transfer to another bus to Pokhara. The road from Beni to Pokhara is relatively very good and black topped. The coiled and hilly terrain ride will take around 4 hours before dropping us at the Pokhara - Baglung buspark. Overnight in Pokhara
Pokhara All Day
Places Visited: Pokhara
Pokhara - Kathmandu
Activities: Travelling on Bus
Another day on road but better and broader. The bus ride takes around 7 hours to Kathmandu. The bus traverses through beautiful lush green hills and views of mountains (only in season). Once we reach Kathmandu we transfer you to your accommodation and hence officially come to an end of Annapurna circuit trek.

Kathmandu - Nagarkot (overland)
Nagarkot - Kathmandu - Sightseeing
Fly to Lukla (2,800m/9,186ft) & Trek to Phakding (2,652m/8,700ft)
The 200km flight to the northeast region of Nepal is a majestic experience but the best view is offered to the one’s seated on the left side of the aircraft. After landing on a 465 meter runway, we immediately retrieve our belongings and head towards the north to the village of Phakding. We walk through the community forest, chortens, prayer walls, mani and finally through rustic suspension bridge, until we reach Phakding.
Phakding to Namche Bazaar (3,440m/11,283ft), 5-6 hrs walk
Today we begin early as usual to cover a distance of 1000m in ascent and in 5-6 hours, after we fuel ourselves with highland breakfast. We start on the trail along raging Dudh Koshi river and make our first sheer uphill walk to Toktok, where awaits the beautiful view of Thamserku. We walk through villages intermingling with beautiful forest of Rhododendron, fir, magnolia and Pine. The final ascent to Namche as well is challenging, whereas you may feel the first symptoms of altitude kicking in.
Acclimatization day at Namche Bazaar
It is uttermost important for us to spend a day in Namche in order to acclimatize for higher ground. The day may be a rest day but it is important to be active even on a free day and being lethargic day around is the worst thing to do. We will do small side trips of 2-3 hours from and to Namche itself. Namche as well is the last stop in the Everest, if you wish to buy any forgotten things for your trek this may as well be a last chance. We spend this day as well on Namche.
Trek to Thame, (3800m), 3 to 4 hours
The trail is usually gradual this day but as we have to cover 600m in ascent and descend and within 3 – 4 hours, so we start early after breakfast. The trail immediately enters dense yet beautiful forest of Rhododendron and Pine, by this time Yaks grazing with big bells by their neck is a common sighting but watch out for musk deer on this day. You will witness some beautiful mountains in the Everest region, namely Khumbila (5761m), Konde Ri and Pharchamo (6187m).
Trek to Marlung, (4137m), 4 to 5 hours
Places Visited: Marlung
The ascent is pleasant but its in the thin air condition, as a result breathlessness follows. Today we will walk on the historical trail used by ancient traders who walked for centuries to trade goods and salt with Tibet. Except for crossing the Bhotekoshi couple of time, there is no significant things to watch for today.
Trek to Lungdeng (4600m), 3 to 4 hours
Places Visited: Lungdeng
We start early in the morning to cover an ascent of 400m in 3 to 4 hours. It may look like a small distance to cover in a day but it is very important to be careful about any ascent you make further ascent; it may result to a dire consequence. Lungden is a small village surrounded by boulders, just below the Renjo – La pass and serves like the rest area or base camp for the pass, before ascending further on the next day .
Trek to Renjo- La (17,929ft / 5465m) to Gokyo Lake (4800m)
We need to start earlier than the other days to complete our day’s trek on time. The ascent to Renjo – la is very demanding and on the contrary is very rewarding as well. The clear blue skies and eye popping views of gigantic peaks Everest, Lhotse, Cholatse, Taboche and many others awaits on the top. The initial trail past Renjo – La to Gokyo is almost vertical and strenuous and towards further down, the trail becomes gradual. The end of the day is tiring yet it is very pleasing to rest besides turquoise blue, crystal clear reservoirs of Gokyo lakes, with the views of one of the ultra 8000er Cho Oyu.
Relax Day at Gokyo Lake
After Days of strenuous hike it is uttermost important for us to call it a day and embrace the striking, turquoise lakes. Although it is a rest day and we will not do rapid hikes or treks on the day but will surely stroll around and see all the lakes in the periphery. We have our breakfast, lunch and dinner in Gokyo itself and enjoy the awe – inspiring views of the saw toothed mountains.
Hike to Gokyo RI (5,330m/17,483ft), and trek to Thaknak (4750m/15580ft), 6-7 hrs walk
The trek starts early and after breakfast. The trail gradually but as we are ascending to one of the most rewarding viewpoints, the trail gets demanding. The view we get of Cho Oyu, Everest, Lhotse and many other mountains, including the Dudh pokhari is unrivalled. After Gokyo RI we descend and immediately ascent on a gradual trail of ever changing Ngozumpa Glacier, until we reach Thaknak. After a long hike we rest here to get ready for yet another interesting on one of the highest passes on earth.
Trek to Cho-la Pass (5367m/17604ft) to Dzongla (4,850m/15908ft), 5-6 hrs walk
The days hike is one of the most demanding days in the itinerary of Everest 3 pass trek. The day starts with sheer ascend on the slopes and lose boulders but the view of Ama Dablam right in front and the Ngozumpa on the back and Pharilapche and Kyajo RI is very astonishing. The trail to Dzongla from Cho La pass is equally challenging, you will walk down looking at the broken face of Cho La glacier. After almost two hours of downhill, you will enjoy easy stroll in between beautiful peaks which seems like in the grasp of our palms, with the striking view of Ama Dablam, far down the valley. We call it a day at Dzongla.
Trek to Gorakshep (5,160m/16,929ft), 5-6 hrs walk
Places Visited: Gorak shep
The trail heads down on a grassy hill side, with the view of lake Chola Tso and the rugged Cholatse and Arakam. Further down we cross small streams and flat trails and one final effortless ascend to Lobuche. We walk through the narrow moraine and up towards Gorakshep. As we had a long day of walk and it is very important for us to take appropriate rest and past Lobuche, one needs to acclimatize, we rest in Gorakshep and observe the ambiance.
Trek to Everest Base Camp (5,357m/17,575ft) and return to Lobuche for overnight. 6 to 7 hrs
Places Visited: Everest Base Camp
The walk to Everest base camp is tedious process because of the ever changing path of notorious Khumbu Icefall. Base camp is a beautiful hub for climbers who have been waiting for green signal to head further north. Base camp is a colorful village made out of tents, on the laps of some beautiful mountains with best cloud formations. The walk is not very demanding but is challenging due to the elevation factor. We take the same route back until Lobuche and rest in the same.
Lobuche - Kongma La (5,535m/18,159ft) - Chhukung (4,730m/15,518ft): 6-7 hrs
Places Visited: Kongma La
We start early and by the first sunlight in the morning to make it to the other side by the end of the day. It is important to refill water in hefty amount. The climb immediately gets sheer and strenuous from the very first moment and on the edge of a moraine until we reach to the top. On the top you will enter a flat surface with icy patches of lake and frozen ridges of Kongma La pass. From Kongma La to Chukkung is equally grinding downhill but the view of Island peak and ridge of Amphu Lapcha will sweep you off your feet. It is a must take break at Chukkung for two reason; one because of long day trek and 2nd for the reason that Chukkung is a beautiful village surrounded from ridges and glaciers from all sides.
Trek to Tengboche (3,867m/12684ft), 4-5 hrs walk
From here we begin to descend and the trails are a little less demanding that a day before but the chilling winds on the ridges are bone piercing. With the beautiful views of Taboche, Cholatse, Amphu Lapcha and un recognizable north view of Ama Dablam, we stroll forward to our final destination, sometimes on the barren trails and for a while on the stone steps. We catch more breath than on the trails of higher ground and the view of the mountains behind is more beautiful than ever. We call it a night at the periphery of the famous and biggest Tengboche monastery, which has been restored to its original despite several tragedies.
Trek to Monjo (2680M/8791ft), 5-6 hrs walk
The walk from Tengboche to Monjo is all in the woods of Rhododendron, pine and fir that blankets the hills. The forest encompassing the trail is dense and known to be the home of Himalayan thar, snow leopard and musk deer, it is very important to look for the opportunity to spot these wild animals despite the exhaustion. We make our way further to Namche, where you may want to take a look to cascade of houses and snap shots of it with the mountains in the backdrop. We further head down to couple of rustic bridges and through the warm breezes until we arrive Monjo and halt for the day.
Trek to Lukla (2,800m/9,186ft), 6-7 hrs walk
We head further to Lukla with plenty of oxygen to fill our lungs and only halt our trek in Lukla. We can enjoy the end of the trek and share experience with the ones returning as well as beginning their trek. Once our convoy reaches to Lukla, the trekking leader will reconfirm your flight for the next day.
Fly back to Kathmandu (1,300m/4,264 ft)
We board an early morning 200km flight back to Kathmandu, with the best views of the mountains on the right. One last time we wave off the mountains through the widows of the aircraft. Our trip of Everest three pass trek officially comes to end when we arrive at Kathmandu Airport and we transfer you to your hotel.
