An early morning flight to Nepalgung. Overnight Batika.
During the flight you can enjoy superb views of the Annapurnas, Dhaulagiris and of Manaslu before landing on the unsurfaced runway at Juphal (2,250m). It's a 3 hour trek to Dunai, where you camp for the night at 2,140m.
The trail follows the Thulo Bheri river towards Tarakot (5 hours).
It's over 1,600m height gain from Kakkot to base camp, with only one place to camp in-between, so you need to spend a few days acclimatising. From Kakkot you'll aim to walk up to 4,000m en route to Pangi Camp, before returning to Kakkot.
You'll aim to have two nights in Pangi Camp.
You will use three camps above base camp; at 5,450m, 6,150m and 6,500m. You should have enough time to get acclimatized, skiing and make a summit bid in a decent weather window. Fixed ropes will be placed on some of the steeper sections of the route between Camp 1 and Camp 2, but much of the climbing will be done moving together as roped teams. Nowhere is the ground particularly steep, but after fresh snow this could make the going extremely tough. Temperatures on summit day could be as low as -40 degrees celcius.
A chance to explore the bustling capital, with its beautiful temples and bustling markets. Overnight hotel.
Your scheduled flight back to the UK arrives in London Heathrow early evening.
