With an alluring broad spectrum of ethnic group cultures, natural diversity from lush valley up to alpine valley and arid peaks, and a varied terrain varying from 760m to 5,416m, awe inspiring scenery of alpine pastures, forests, farmed terraces, waterfalls, lakes, glaciers, Tibetan plateau, apple orchards, and mind–blowing views of snow–capped Annapurna massifs. Annapurna circuit trekking is widely renowned as one of the world’s best classic treks. Trek links the valley of the Marsyangdi River, cross the mighty Thorong La Pass (5416m), walk through the Kali Gandaki valley – the deepest gorge in the world, visit the holy pilgrimage site of Muktinath and have a relaxed soak in the hot springs at Tatopani.

Annapurna (8091m) is the tenth highest mountain in the world. Despite the controversy over continuing road construction, with the visit of over 100,000 trekkers in a year to this region, journey to Annapurna circuit is still greatest and most famous adventure destination in the world and second top of Nepal after Everest. Moreover, an amazing view of the world’s three highest mountains over 8000m and most beautiful six peaks over 7200m with Annapurna (8091m), Manaslu (8,156m), Dhaulagiri(8167m), Annapurna South I 7219m, Annapurna III 7555m, Annapurna IV 7525m, Lamjung himal (6,983m), Himalchuli (7893m), Machhapuchre (Fishtail) 6993m, Gangapurna Himal (7455m), Langtang Himal (7234m) and Mardi Himal (5587m) are just outstanding.

Trek in Annapurna circuit begins at Chame by continuing two days bus drive from Kathmandu. Trails from the lower valley to the Himalayan rain shadow near Muktinath surpass gradually through terraced rice fields, pine forests to the arid terrain. Upstream we enter into spectacular rhododendron forests; spring brings spectacular blooms, from red to pink to white, depending on altitude. Manang is the Buddhist country with around the captivating glaciers and lakes where we will see colorful prayer flags, mani walls and monasteries. Crossing the highest Thorung La Pass at 5,416m is a challenging but highly rewarding sense of accomplishment. Trek goes down exploring chortens, fossils, forts, shrines of pristine trans-Himalayan in the deep Kali Gandaki gorge located between the Dhaulagiri and Annapurna massifs. After several days of hiking in the mountain, relaxing in the natural hot springs at Tatopani will really be an exceptional experience, our trek package completes at Pokhara.
