Annapurna Circuit Trail

Annapurna Circuit Trek is a classic trekking journey that circumnavigates the huge Annapurna massif. The trail passes through a variety of diverse landscapes, ranging from green sub-tropical rainforest, beautiful valleys and cultivated fields, to wooded alpine and high altitude desert. The trek starts from Beshishahar and follows the River Marshyandi until we reach the highest point-Thorong La Pass (5416 m). En route we will visit many different ethnic villages, meeting with the local people and enjoy frequent spectacular views of gigantic Himalayan Peaks that include Mount Annapurnas and  Mount Manaslu. Descending to the west we enter the barren Tibet- like valley of Kali Gandaki which is the world's deepest gorge. At lower altitudes we walk through forests of schima and chestnut up to 2000m and beyond a great many species of oaks and rhododendrons especially in temperate zones at elevation up to 3000m.In this Annapurna region one can discover 30 species of rhododendrons along the trails.

The other highlight  of the Annapurna region is one can explore amazing local cultures and different castes and tribes living at lower hills, mid hills and higher altitudes.  The Kali Gandaki valley is inhabited by the Thakalis, in lower hills and one can experience Hindu culture and at higher altitudes Buddhist culture. There are many Buddhist monasteries on the high mountains.

Annapurna Circuit Trek is the world’s  best walking  trail  and  every trekking enthusiasts must do it. This trek offers comfortable tea house (lodge) and food on the entire route and it is highly recommended for those who are confident of their fitness and stamina.
