Day 4: Chamje to Bagarchhap
Ahead of Chamje, we go crosswise over thin valleys among rhododendron, pine, and bamboo forests. As we cross the rocky trails of a mountain, we walk along a suspension bridge and afterward rise to a more extensive valley. In the wake of passing along the village of Tal, we trek past fields of grain, wheat, and potatoes till we reach Dharapani. At that point, we divert west from the pine and fir woodlands to achieve our goal of the day, Bagarchhap, at 2160 meters.
Day 5: Bagarchhap to Chame

Day 8: Acclimatization day at Manang
In the wake of achieving the 3000 meters mark on our trek, we take a rest day to adapt to the expanding height. We have to rest and store enough energy and enthusiasm for the diminishing oxygen levels ahead.

Day 11: Thorang Phedi to Muktinath
This is the most cumbersome day of the trek as we accomplish the 5416 meters point at the pass. Overwhelming snowfall can in some cases hinder the way, which makes the trail more tough. It takes around 16 hours to finish the day's adventure and get to our destination on schedule. It takes around 4 – 6 hours to reach Thorang La pass from Thorung Phedi.

Thorung la pass with its customary prayer banners and stones, is the best perspective for mountains like Annapurna, Gangapurna and Khatung kang. After a plummet of 1600 meters alongside the Dhaulagiri at a near glance, we achieve smooth grass fields to reach our target, Muktinath.
