From Upper Pisang, taking approximately 4 hours we will arrive at the Base Camp lying at 4380m. The path moves up through meager woodland and grazing land to a Kharka at 4,380m. This is regarded as the best set for putting our base camp for the night. It is in a plane alpine part next to the well worn track. Over night at tented camp

Day 11: Base Camp to High Camp (5,400m)
On this day, we will make our way to reach at the High Camp that lies at 5400m higher than the Pisang peak Base camp at 4380m. Our path is not very far-reaching one but has quite a few testing tracks. From here the snap of the enormous and snowy peaks proffer you overwhelming sense. We lay our camp here for overnight.

Day 12: Summit Pisang Peak (6,091m) and hike back to Upper Pisang
From the High Camp, the well divergent edge leads you to the final snow slant which is fairly steep and more demanding to arrive at the peak.

We subsequently return back to Upper Pisang after celebrating sometime at the peak observing beautiful peaks all around.

Day 15: Trek to Jomsom (2700m)
We will have a long day trek and leave Phedi. The first division of the way up is very sheer, but it becomes easy as we go to the top, even though the height still makes the going hard-hitting. Eventually, after more than a few false apexes, we get to the pass at 5416m. To the facade there is an astonishing landscape of snowy peaks pulled out northwardly to Tibet, and at our back we can notice a number of the major peaks of Annapurna. The long way down starts but turns steeper ahead of easing off to a mild fall to Muktinath (3802m). Here famous temple Muktinath greets us. Overnight in Muktinath.

Day 16: Jomsom to Pokhara to Kathmandu
We will catch the flights from Jomsom to reach Pokhara which are generally in the early morning because of the high storms which destroys the Kali Gandaki Valley afterward in the day. The eye-catching flight above the majestic views of Niligiri and Dhaulagiri appears. We fly to Pokhara and taking another flight we will come back to Kathmandu.
