Annapurna Trekking

Annapurna circuit trek commences with an overland journey to Beshi Sahar, 130 km west of Kathmandu where you overnight. From Besishaar more than 200km the trek follows the Marshyangdi river gorge through lush fields of paddy, innumerable tiny streams, waterfalls and beautiful villages, until eventually we emerge into the high desert country at Manang (3597m). The trek gains elevation gradually which reduces the chances of altitude sickness, although you will spend a day acclimatizing before crossing the pass at Thorang-La (5416m.). From a high lodge camp you wake up early for our crossing of the Thorang-La (tremendous high mountain feelings) before your descent to Muktinath in the lower Mustang region, one of the holiest pilgrimage sites for Buddhist and Hindu people in Nepal.

The trek continues through the dry arid landscape to Kagbeni, a fascinating historical fortress town. The trail back follows the Kali Gandaki River to Jomsom (optional fly out here) beneath the shadow of immense Himalayan peaks and through the deepest canyon in the world. You descend to Tatopani before ascending to Ghorepani and Poon Hill for some tremendous sunrise views of both the Dhaulagiri and Annapurna Himal. A further two days are spent trekking through beautiful rhododendron bamboo and oak forests before eventually reaching Nayapul for a short drive to the beautiful lakeside town of Pokhara. This trek is considered to be the classic Nepalese experience featuring vast bio-diversity and the cultural heritage that Nepal is renowned for.
