September 5/6 is still late monsoon season so you will be experiencing some rains during the trek. These days won't be like July and August so most treks are doable. Upper Mustang and Dolpo Areas is definitely the best options but these areas are a bit expensive due to costly immigration permit for restricted areas.

Other normal treks like Annapurna Circuit until Jomsom, Annapurna Base Camp, Langtang Valley, Gokyo Lakes and Everest Base Camp is doable. If you are doing Jomsom Muktinath, Annapurna Circuit and treks in Everest it may have some flight delays or cancellation risks so traveling with tight schedule is not good idea. Langtang valley seems to be one of the safest options available for you, you can extend to Gosainkunda area for longer itineraries.

Hi there

September to November is called Autumn season in Nepal. This is the most popular season for trekking in Nepal as the sky remains clear and rain is at the minimum. This season offers excellent weather, a lots of greenery and tantalizing mountain views. Your plan for 14 days trekking sounds good. Make sure that you have some extra days to your trekking itinerary to allow for bad weather. You can't predict the weather in Nepal.

Here are 3 popular regions (Everest, Annapurna, Langtang) for trekking in Nepal and it has many different routes. You can go for 3 days to more than 3 weeks trekking in these regions. Beside these regions Manaslu, Upper Mustang, Dhaulagiri circuit, Ganesh Himal and many other regions are recommended for trekking. You can research of these regions and you can find differences between different regions and routes. It is also depend on your timing and fitness.

Good luck!

Annapurna Circuit or at least the Manang Valley part of it is the only reasonably priced trek (requiring no special permits, guides etc.) where you can get away from some of the inevitable rain. In 14 days you should be able to hike from Bhulbhule to Jomsom at least, and either fly or take a car to Pokhara from there.

14 days would be fine for EBC trek also, but at that time of year it is more than likely that the Lukla flights would be badly delayed, so it is risky to plan going there unless you have more than a week of cushion time available.

Day 01: Arrival in kathmandu Upon arrival at Kathmandu International Airport transfer to your hotel in Kathmandu or Bhaktapur. Short briefing will follow concerning the necessary formalities and your trekking itinerary. Depending upon your arrival time you may spend free time visiting nearby sanctuaries or resting.

Day 02: Sightseeing / Cultural Day in Kathmandu Valley Half day sightseeing around UNESCO Bhaktapur / Kathmandu where your guide will escort you on a tour of Buddhist and Hindu temples and shrines reflecting ancient local traditions. There is time to explore the city’s many places of interest on your own or take a rest while trekking permits are finalised. In the evening sample a delicious traditional Nepali dinner. Overnight in Kathmandu.

Day 03: Kathmandu to Pokhara Fly or drive to Pokhara, from where you will depart on your trek. Overnight in Pokhara.

NOTE

Based on the required travel time between Kathmandu and Pokhara we may depart for the trek a day earlier than shown on the itinerary.

Day 04: Pokhara to Tikhe Dhungha (1525m) Breakfast. Our Trekking guide will come to the hotel around 06:30 hrs to pick you up for a short drive to the airport from where we fly to Pokhara. Drive for an hour to Naya Pul and commence our trek to Birethanti, a large and prosperous town beside the Modi River. We head up the main trail to Sudami where we climb gradually up the side of the valley, reaching Hile (1495m) before pushing on to Tirkhe Dhunga (4:30 hrs).

Day 05: Trek to Ghorepani (2750m) Today we spend a pleasant day’s walking, trekking through rhododendron and oak forests and across the Bhurungdi Khola stream before making a short, final climb to Nangethanti (2460m). After lunch in Nangethanti we head up to Ghorepani (2750m) (5:30 hrs).

Day 06: Ghorepani to Poon Hill to Tadapani (2520m) After an early start at around 04:00 hrs we will ascend to Poon Hill (3210m), this is steep climb, but not to hard and it will take us about 1 hour and leads us to a brilliant viewpoint, providing an unobstructed sunrise over the high Himalayas. After spending about 40 minutes on the hillside and enjoy a good cup of coffee or tea, we come back to Ghorepani, have a hot breakfast, and start walking to Tadapani. From Ghorepani the trail climbs along ridges and through pine and rhododendron forests to Deurali (2960m). We descend to reach Banthanti, before winding our way down to Tadapani (2540m) (6 hrs).

Day 07: Tadapani to Chhomrong (2210m) Dropping down from Tadapani Gurjung the route offers good views of the upper Modi valley. The path then starts the long ascent high above the west bank of the Modi Khola. We then arrive in the village of Chhomrong (2210m) which lies tucked at the very base of Himal Chuli. Chomrong is the last permanent settlement in the valley (5 hrs).

Day 08: Chhomrong to Doban (2540m) From Chhomrong the trail descends until Chhomrong Khola, then the trail begins a slow climb as we head up to our first destination – Sinuwa. We then proceed to Kuldi Ghar (2470m) about 2 1/2 to 3 hrs walking. The trek now enters the upper Modi Khola valley. We can expect snow from here on in the winter months (Dec-Febr.) We continue our trek going down to Bamboo through an uninhabited forest area, scattered with big rocks. From Bamboo the road will take us through bamboo and rhododendron forests to Doban (2540m) (6 hrs).

Day 09: Doban to Deurali (3170) After climbing 300 meters up we will first pas the Himalayan Hotel at 2840 meters. We then continue on to Hinko Cave (3100m) and then onto Deurali. During this day if we are lucky we can see interesting wildlife like deer, jackals and peacocks. Here we will also have great views of Machhapuchhare mountain (6997m) and you will understand why the translation of its name means fishtail mountain. In Deurali we will stay overnight (5:30 hrs).

Day 10: Deurali to Annapurna Base camp Today we climb on past the Machhapuchhare Base Camp (which isn't really a base camp since climbing the mountain is not permitted) to the Annapurna Base Camp. This area is called the Annapurna Sanctuary since it is totally surrounded by mountains. From here it is a two-hour trek to Annapurna Base camp, which offers spectacular views (5:30 hrs).

Day 11: Annapurna Base Camp descend to Sinuwa Today we follow our way back to Sinuwa, it’s more easy as we descend the most part of our route (5 hrs).

Day 12: Sinuwa to Ghandrung (1940m) From Sinuwa we continue to Chhomrong from where the trail descends through forests to Gurjung Khola and then the trail ascends slightly until Kimrong. Then we reach the top of the Deurali, from where it is an easy way to reach Ghandrunk. Ghandrunk is a village of Gurung people, one of the ethnic groups of Nepal; they have their own dialect, culture, costume, and life style. Ghandrunk is one of the most famous destinations for trekkers known for its beautiful mountain views. (It is an easy reach from Pokhara or Kathmandu.) Our early arrival means we have the afternoon to visit the one of the Gurung Museum and explore the village (4:30 hrs).

Day 13: Trek to Birethanti, Naya Pul; then drive to Pokhara (910m) From Ghandrung it's easy walking, all down hill, to Naya Pul where our trekking ends (4 hrs). Our private transport to drive us to Pokhara about an hour away. Overnight at the hotel

Day 14: Fly back from Pokhara to Kathmandu. Fly back to Kathmandu by the early morning flight. Overnight stay at hotel.

Hi Migjock…

My sister and I will arrive in Kathmandu 4th Sept and hope to be treking from the 6th or 7th of September. We will decide on our definate route once we arrive because we think the weather forecast will actually be the deciding factor. At this stage, we think the Langtang region will probably be the likely route we will take. Feel free to contact me though if you want to join us!
