Annapurna Circuit Trek

 Annapurna conservation region has been declared one of the most beautiful trekking destinations in the world by all trekkers – foreign and local- who have experienced any one of the many treks. Annapurna circuit trek, in particular, circumvents the Annapurna massif completely in a matter of 21 days. The trek begins from Besisahar and ends at Birethanti, Pokhara after reaching a maximum elevation of 5416 meters at Thorung la pass.

Thorung la pass is the highlight of the trek along with the mountain vistas and the pristine landscape along the trail. The elevations and the tricky, snowy trails pose a challenge which becomes a great feat once you reach the top of the pass and enjoy the surrounding majestic views. As we follow the Marsyangdi River, crossing its clear waters over suspension bridges many times, we go from traditional villages, terraced hills to yak pastures at the bases of mountain peaks.

From Tibetan-styled villages, Gompas (monasteries) and sacred Hindu temple- Muktinath, the trek is filled with cultural and religious heritages. In addition to that, the serenity of the trails and the warm hospitality of the people make the trek a truly enriching experience. The Gurung, Thakali and other ethnic villages provide a glimpse into the life of the traditional people living around the majestic mountains.

With the thrills of challenging trails, high elevation destinations, natural and cultural diversities, Annapurna circuit trek is truly one of the best adventures of a lifetime- which has been called a pilgrimage by trekkers and climbers who worship the mountains. The major reasons to complete the trek are:
