Annapurna Circuit Trek

It is an outstanding circular trek of the Annapurna Massif crossing the Thorong La pass at 5416 meters and it is an incredible landscape.

The Annapurna Circuit trek was named the world’s greatest trek by Backpacker Magazine in their Jan “09 International Travel Edition.

Annapurna circuit trek goes through Marshangdi River valley which will bring you almost to the base of Gangapurna and into the Manang valley (the Himalayan Shangri-La) where you will spend two remarkable days gazing at the snow-covered peaks above you and the beauty of the landscapes around you.

We will then proceed to climb the Thorong-la pass at 5416metersand once you are on the top it has the perfect 360-degree views which is breathtaking and it will make you feel swollen with pride to be there!

Once we descend from the pass we will witness the views of Mustang which is a colorful landscape that is home to the Tibetan Buddhist and numerous friendly people.
We will then follow the deepest gorge on earth that is the Kali Gandaki Valley which is guarded by the giant peaks of Dhaulagiri at 8169 meters and the Nilgiri.
We will then use the unchanged ancient paths that were used as trade routes between Nepal and Tibet and here we will pass through the apples and wheat farming areas, interact with local Thakali people and share our moments with sheep and yak herders.
