Eventually, we descend to the stone village of Jagat (1330m.) situated on a shelf which juts into the precipitous Marsyangdi valley. Overnight at Tea house.

Day 3Trek from Jagat to Dharapani (1,960m): 7-8 hours

After having breakfast at a teahouse, we start our trek by descending to the river and cross another suspension bridge; we begin a climb to Sattale (1550m.) on a path so steep that seems one slip would send you hurtling down into the valley. We continue on an undulating path above the river, and at one point, where a tributary flows in from the opposite bank, the main river becomes covered with huge boulders that hide the water. Climbing a meandering path to the top of the hill, we will see the level plain of Tal (1700m.). Beyond Tal, the valley narrows and the path become high and winding, and in several areas hewn from the rock itself. Beyond the small village of Karte (1900m.), there is a bit more cliff-walking before the path drops again to the river and we cross another suspension bridge and arrive at Dharapani, overnight at Teahouse.

After having breakfast, we will start our trekking from Lamjung Himal (6893m) as we see it glittering in the morning sunshine with the first rays hitting us warmly in the fac and we set off for Pisang, The mountain disappears as we climb the path up the valley, passing a huge apple orchard. We continue through fir and pine forest, climbing to a high, rocky area as the opposite bank becomes an impassable cliff. From this point the valley becomes extremely steep-sided as we follow the path to Bratang (2950m.) which has a special apple farm then a short climb from the village brings us to a rock-strewn area where we cross a wooden bridge and follow a high, winding path, before crossing back to the right bank again. We now trek through a pine forest and as the forest ends, the valley changes from a V-shape to a gentle U-shape, opening up wonderful vistas. Then we come to a long mani wall by a bridge and the lower village of Pisang. Overnight at a Teahouse.

The views are dramatic, to say the least, from the snow-covered mountains above to the head of the Kali Gandaki valley below and the brown and purple hills of Mustang which are spread out before us. The descent to Muktinath is a knee-pounding 1600m but it’s compensated for with excellent views of Dhaulagiri.
