We set off early today for Sotikhola. While travelling, we enjoy beautiful views of the Nepalese countryside along with the mountain sceneries. We go through a paved road from Kathmandu to Dhading Bensi, district headquarter of Dhading (1050m)but the drive from Dhanding Bensi to Arughat will be on a difficult road. While reaching Arughat, a major town in the region we drive further towards Sotikhola.
While crossing the bridge, we trek through the wonderful Sal forests, then move onto a ridge above huge rapids on the Budhi Gandaki. After that we reach Khursane upon which the hard stream weaves its way up and down, past two tropical waterfalls on a steep, rocky trail clinging to the side of a cliff. It eventually makes its way down and past a few rice terraces, then up and around to the Gurung village of Labubesi. We further climb behind a rocky outcrop, where the valley opens up and the Budhi Gandaki meanders among huge gravel bars. Dropping to the sandy river bed, we walk along rounded stones before climbing over a side ridge. We head down again to the river and cross another suspension bridge to reach Machha Khola village.
The small stream makes some minor ups and downs and eventually crosses the Tharo Khola and reaching Khorlabesi. After a few more moving upwards and downwards we come across a small Hotspring in Tatopani. From the hot spring, we climb over another ridge, and then we cross the Budhi Gandaki on a suspension bridge. During this period, we climb on a big, well-crafted staircase, then across a landslide and over a ridge to Dobhan. While crossing a suspension bridge over the Yaru Khola, we climb the stone stairs and then drop to the river and again climb more stone stairs to Tharo Bharyang. After crossing the west bank of the Budhi Gandaki, we climb over a ridge, trek along the river and then climb towards the village of Jagat
Descend through forest, crossing streams, before tackling a long and steep climb up the south side of the Siyar Khola gorge that drains the Tsum Valley. The high point is marked by flags at a turn in the valley with views across to the Shringi Himal above colourful grain, potato and bean fields. Descend to Gumlung and the Siyar Khola. Cross the suspension bridge and finally ascend the gentler narrow trail to Chumling. The houses are classic Tibetan but built with sloping roofs to cope with the abundant rain and snow
Crossing the suspension bridge onto the opposite bank. We enjoy the great views of Ganesh Himal. Walking by Rainjam to Serpu Khola crossing another bridge we arrive at the Gho Village. After continuing 2 hours of climb to Tsum takes us to the village of Chhokangparo. If weather permits we can enjoy the beautiful views of Himalchuli at 7893 meters and Ganesh Himal at 7140m.
Namrung village is a wonderful viewpoint for Siring and Ganesh Himal and from the village one can also see Mt. Himal Chuli in the south. We climb steadily and pass through forests and reach Lihi, a fine village with many chortens and barley terraces. The stream drops and crosses the side valley of Simnang Himal with Ganesh Himal always close by. After that we go through Sho, Lho and Shyala villages before reaching Sama Village. We enjoy extraordianary views of Mt. Manasly from Lho village and also explore the famous Ribung Gompa.

Today, we move downwards to the Budhi Gandaki River, that has turned north and follow it to a bridge over a side stream. The stream to the left leads to the Manaslu Base camp. The Larkya la stream passes many mani walls as the valley begins to widen. It is an easy trail on a shelf above the river passing the juniper and birch forests of Kermo Kharka. We drop off the shelf, cross the Budhi Gandaki on a wooden bridge and climb harldy onto a promontory between two forks of the river. From a stone arch we can view a large white kani. Finally passing through the kani we find Samdo.
As always, we continue our walk down the edge, cross the wooden bridge over Budi Gandaki and move upward. While crossing two streams and observing the Larkya Glacier we go around the valley of the Salka Khola and climb up again to the stone guest house (4450 m), which is not a lodge but a kind of shelter called Dharmshala, also known as Larke Phedi.
After a short climb, we reach a valley on the north side of the Larkya Glaciers from where we can enjoy amazing views of Cho Danda and Larkya Peak. Finally, we walk across moraines of the glacier, making a gradual ascent which becomes harder only in the last section of the pass. From the pass, there are overwhelming views of Himlung Himal, Cheo Himal, Kangguru and the vast Annapurna II. It is a lenghty day than usual to Bimtang, but to walk into these low pastures with the evening mist coming in with Mt. Manaslu looming close by is a great experience.
From a ridge at Bimthang, we can enjoy outstanding views of Mt. Manaslu, Lamjung Himal, Himlung Himal and Cheo Himal. We move downdwards again and cross a high pasture (Sangure Kharka) followed by a bridge over Dudh Khola. We go through rhododendron forest and follow a stream through a small valley until we reach the highest cultivated land of the valley at Karche, 2785 meters. We pass across fields before making a difficult climb over a ridge. The stream comes off the ridge in a huge, sweeping arc to the river bank at 2580m. A short distance beyond is the village of Gho. Then we reach tilije .
We climb over a small ridge and enjoy the stone paved stream as it passes through a wonderful village. After that we cross the bridge over Dudh Khola and climb up through a chorten-shaped arch, pass a mani wall and reach the Thonje village. At the village, we go through a police checkpoint and continue to Dharapani. We have entered the Annapurna circuit section from Dharapani. Further down, we come across Karte village and after quite a bit of walking we cross a bridge over Marshyangdi Khola. We also come across some mani walls before reaching the village of Tal, located at the foot of a huge waterfall.
We follow the stream to Chyamje village crossing the Marshyangdi Khola once again. The Marsyandi valley opens with its terrace fields and villages clung very high to the hillsides. The stream then we go downwards through rhododendron and and pine forests to Syange.
