  • The Annapurna Circuit is regarded as one of the best trekking trails in the world. From the typical Nepalese countryside to the dry and windswept villages of Manang and Pisang where people still follow Tibetan culture, to crossing the Thorung La Pass, the circuit encompasses an experience so varied and rich that it will leave you spell bound ….

    We trek past picturesque hilltop Brahmin and Gurung villages, with their terraced fields and staircases paved with carved stones. En route we cross forests of conifer skirted by gurgling Himalayan streams and savor mesmerizing views of snowcapped Manaslu, Himal Chuli, Dhaulagiri and Annapurna. Halfway through our trek, we soak our tired muscles at the hot spring at Chame. Passing large chortens and mani walls we reach the village of Pisang and then Manang, a remote mountain village surrounded by the majestic Annapurna II(7937m), Annapurna IV(7525m), Annapurna III(7555m) ,Gangapurna (7455m) and Tilitso Peak (7134m).
    We climb up to Thorung Phedi and ascend higher till we reach the highest point of our trek, the Thorung La Pass at 5416m. After traversing through the pass we descend to the holy shrine of Muktinath(3800m). A pilgrimage site for both Hindu and Buddhists, Muktinath is famous for the Muktinath Temple dedicated to Lord Vishnu or Avalokiteshwara as the Buddhists call him, the Jwala Mai Temple with the ‘eternal flame’, and some ancient Buddhists monasteries. We make our way downhill to Jomsom, happy wheels a place known for its well kept lodges and apple pies, and then to Pokhara, where we complete our Annapurna Circuit.
