Annapurna Circuit

Annapurna Circuit Trek

The adventure of a lifetime, the Annapurna Circuit Trek is a journey for those whose dreams for high mountains. Miles from city crowd, convenience, and daily comforts. The Annapurna Circuit is one of the most popular treks in Nepal. On this route, the scenery and culture dramatically change from subtropical forests, rice paddy, and the world’s deepest river gorge to ice flows, a high mountain pass, arid cliffs, and high mountain views.

Passing through Manang village, the trek starts with views the Manaslu range, Tibetan-like Buddhist villages, and pine woodlands, through the Marshyangdi Valley.

Heading towards the high Thorong La Pass, a host of mountains come into view, including the Annapurna Massif range, Dhaulagiri, Manaslu, and Tilicho Peak.

The trail continues over the pass to enter Mustang and the Hindu pilgrimage town of Muktinath and on down the Kali Gandaki Valley, past the unique and interesting village of Marpha with its small monastery, narrow cobbled streets, and apple orchards, on to the hot springs at Tatopani
