Annapurna Circuit Trek Nepal:

A classical trek of Nepal through one of the best trekking trails in the world!!..
The Annapurna circuit trek starts from a drive to Besishar and wings through lush, subtropical forests and traditional farming terrace villages of west Nepal. Every ridge brings a Himalayan panorama with Annapurna and Himalchuli soaring above. A trek of the Marshangdi River valley will bring you almost to the base of Gangapurna and into the Manang valley where you will spend unforgettable 2 days gazing at the snow-covered peaks above and the beauty of the landscape around, Manang is a Himalayan Shangri-La. We will then proceed to climb the pass Thorong-la, (5416mtr), which once on top has a perfect 360-degree view that is breathtaking will make you feel proud to be there!

Once we descend from the pass we will come into view of Mustang; a colorful landscape that is home to Tibetan Buddhism and many friendly mangolian looking people. We will follow the deepest gorge on Earth, the Kali Gandaki Valley, which is guarded by the giant peaks Dhaulagiri (8169m) and Nilgiri, then we use the same ancient paths that where used as trade routes between Nepal, India and Tibet. We will pass through apple and wheat farming areas, interacting with local Thakali people and sharing our beautiful moments with sheep and yak herders.

****IMPROVED ROUTE**** of Annapurna circuit trek - For those who want to do 20 days Annapurna circuit trek

We have recently revised the itinerary between Muktinath and Ghorepani pooh hill for this Annapurna circuit trek to avoid the dirt-road being built along the Kali Gandaki Valley. This section of the route now follows footpaths through pretty villages away from the road, but returns to the traditional circuit villages for overnight lodge stays. Like the route will go Jomsom to Dona Lake to Marpha visting some Gompas. From Marpha it goes to Tibetan refuge camp to Chibang Tukuche . Then to Larjung Titi lake - Titi village , Taklung - Kunjo then Ghasa.

The Annapurna circuit trek you can also end in Jomsom taking flight to Pokhara, if so the trek can be shorten to 16 or 18 days. Because of the motorable road reached to Jomsom now ( although not many car or Jeep running) people prefer to fly from Jomsom to Pokhara.
