Annapurna three high passes trek is one of the adventurous and wilderness trekking routes designed by Peace Nepal Treks. This High pass trek in Annapurna is suitable for trekking enthusiasts who would like to visit areas that are less frequented and crowded unlike other trekking regions in Nepal.
Annapurna, a section of the Himalayas is sometimes referred to as the Goddess of Harvests. The mother mountain that feeds the universe stays protected within the Annapurna Conservation Area, the first and the largest conservation area in Nepal. The Annapurna Conservation Area is a paradise for trekkers because of the world-class treks it offers. It is the home of treks where trekkers get to choose between different trekking routes via equally different passes.
The Annapurna High Pass trek starts from Kalikasthan and ends at Jomsom (2,750m) the headquarters of the Manang district. The trek itself is a 25-day affair with fully organized camps and tents. The level of challenge increases with every high pass; Namun Bhanjyang(5,5600m), Kang La pass(5,306m), and Thorong La pass(5,416m).
The trek begins from Kalikasthan near Siklis from Pokhara until we reach the base camp in 6 days, where a day of acclimatization in Dharmasala prepares us for the rest of our journey. In Dharmasala we have a day to enjoy superb views of Annapurna IV (7,525m), Annapurna II (7,937m), Machhapurchhre (6,997m), Annapurna III (7,555m), and Lamjung Himal (6,988m). In case of snowfall during the trek, it’s quite difficult to find out the trekking path from the base camp to the High passes in Namun Banjyang (5,560m). We will be crossing the height of 5,560m until we reach the next base camp.
The base camp offers panoramic views of Lamjung Himal (6,988m), Annapurna IV (7,525m), Annapurna II (7,937m), Machhapurchhre (6,997m), Annapurna III (7,555m), and other equally mesmerizing mountains. The trekking path after crossing Namun descends and slopes down to the base camp. After a night’s stay here we will continue walking to Koto, which is the major trail of the popular Annapurna Circuit Trek. We will take a day to rest in Koto after our successful trek and celebrate this success with chilled beers and Nepalese wines. If you prefer to visit Chame instead, our staff will take you to this headquarters of Lamjung district.
The next destination is Naar Phu which was a restricted area for trekkers until 2003. This valley that lies in the remotest areas of the Annapurna region is home to villages where Yak herding and agriculture remain the mainstays of the economy rather than tourism. The trek takes you through narrow gorges to medieval villages, past chorines, herds of blue sheep, spectacular cliff-side trails, and over the region’s highest trekking passes.
After visiting the beautiful medieval village of Phu and witnessing the lifestyles of Bhote communities, we walk to the Khangsar village to cross over the Kang La (5,306m). The trekking path ascending Kang La can be a bit difficult but when you are here you will forget all the difficulties of seeing the magnificent Pisang Peak (6,091m), Chulu (Far east 6,038m), Chulu East (6,429m), Chulu Centre (6,584m), Tilicho Peak (7, 134m), Kangaru Himal (6,981m), Himlung (7,126m). We are sure that you will love being here and then we will descend to Kharka for a night. The trek then goes through the Manang village across another high Pass Thorong La pass (5,416m). Tilicho Lake at 4,920m is one of the highest frozen lakes in the world and it is beside the lake where we will camp for the night.
This wonderful adventures trek ends after a high pass crossing Thorong La Pass at Jomsom. The Annapurna Three High Passes Trekking is one of the best treks for majestic mountain views in the high land of Annapurna where only a few trekking agencies organize this trek.
Peace Nepal Treks Pvt Ltd. is one of the best trekking agencies in Nepal among these trekking agencies and prides itself on being able to offer this trek.

March/April/May months are called the spring season which is the best for holidays in most of the Himalayas of Nepal. The sky and the weather are very clear and sunny in these months and warmer. The weather forecast will be 20 to 25 degrees till the 3,500m during the daytime. And at night time and in the morning will be colder. But above the 4,500m will be -10 to -15 degrees cold in the morning and at night. Some time will be rainfall in these months. This is the best season for blooming the rhododendron flower in the mountain which is our national flower. There will be many different kinds of natural flora and fauna in the mountain which makes this season beautiful and attractive for tourists in mountains. The tourist comes for trekking/peak climbing and expedition during this season. This is one of the perfect seasons to visit Nepal Mountain to see and take the experiences of walking and climbing mountains.
We called the monsoon months June/July August because of the heavy rainfall in Nepal. Mostly July/August and till mid-September. It’s still possible to do the trek in Mid June which isn’t heavy rain yet. During the monsoon time is difficult to do the trek in mountains and the sky and the weather isn’t visible and difficult to walk during the heavy rain and scare with flooding. Mostly, It’s difficult to do the trek in the Everest region because the flight is not on time. Sometimes, It will take a few days long wait to fly Lukla or long waiting to fly to Kathmandu were lots of chances of missing an international flight. So, During these months, It’s idle to choose dry places for trekking in Nepal, Upper Mustang Trek, and Upper Dolpo Trek. These are the recommended trekking for holidays by Peace Nepal Treks (p Ltd and also we provide our best services for our customer.
Mid-September to Mid December is the best season for mountain holidays in Nepal where ever can choose in the mountain as your timing frame and the budget. We have many different kinds of trekking/peak climbing and Expedition services packages for you. This is one of the most outstanding seasons with a beautiful clear sky and the temperatures will be moderate. These months are the feast and festival time were the biggest Dashain festival/Tihar festival and Chhad festival fall. And also have a long holiday from government and people have time to visit shortly in holidays and to meet friends and relatives around. There is no heavy long rainfall but there is a clear sunny day and warmer on these days. So for it, Nepalese people also visit for short holidays around and the International people come for trekking and peak climbing expedition for long or short holidays. Most of the popular trekking regions will be full of trekkers and quite busy times. Like, mostly busier trekking regions will be the Annapurna region/Everest region and the Langtang region. But there are several less crowded trekking holidays places in Nepal, such as Manaslu circuit trek, Tsum Valley Trek, Upper Dolpo Trek, Mustang Trek, Naar Phu Trek, etc.
December to February are the winter season in Nepal. This season isn’t idle to visit long trekking high altitude trek. This is the season of snowfall in the mountain region above the 4,500m and the temperature will be -30 degrees below which is too frozen and the people of hotel lodges also not staying these months in the higher mountain and they moved to nearby city or in Kathmandu or in Pokhara. So these months are good to visit short trekking route a week or 10 days only around the Kathmandu city, Ghorepani poon hill, Nagarkot visit, Chitwan National park, Bardia National park, Pokhara city or staying local village homestay, etc. But the sunrise and sunset will be very visible and attractive these months. So the short best trekking is good to visit in Nepal.
While there are no seasonal constraints on traveling to Nepal, different trekking regions are best visited in different seasons. Once you inquire about any trekking itinerary we’ll email you regarding the best season for that particular trek. Nepal for all seasons.
