Annapurna Circuit Trek

This classic trek circles the entire Annapurna massif and in so doing offers a spectacular variety of people and landscapes, from lowland farming country to alpine meadows to the Tibet-like country on the northern slopes of the Himalaya. We start in the foothills at Besi Sahar and rise after 6 days to the settlement of Manang at 3500m where we acclimatise and enjoy the mountain views. We continue to ascend and on day 10 of the trek we cross the famous Thorung La, at 5416m, to Muktinath, an important pilgrimage site for Hindus and Buddhists.

From here we descend into the Kali Gandaki, with Annapurna and Dhaulagiri towering on either side. En route back to Pokhara we pass through the many beautiful hill villages that populate this ancient trading route between Tibet and India. We also visit the hot springs at Tatopani, and climb up Poon Hill, above Ghorapani, to enjoy magnificent mountain views. Accommodation and food is provided in the local lodges. Transport to Besi Sahar is by private coach and the return to Kathmandu from Pokhara is by air.
