Annapurna Circuit is the world’s most popular 150-mile long trek that encircles the entire Annapurna massif and awards with stunning views of Annapurna Himalayan range from Annapurna I (8,091m) the 10th highest mountain in the world, Machhapuchhre, Nilgiri, Dhaulagir ( 8,167m ) and Manaslu (8,163m) ), the world’s 7th highest mountain. The trail to Annapurna Circuit begins in an anti-clockwise direction.

While trekking you pass through spectacular villages inhabited by different ethnic groups of people of the country and landscapes from lowland farming terrain to alpine meadows and Tibet-like country on the northern slopes of the Himalaya.

After 6 hours drive from Kathmandu we begin the trek from Bhulbhule (830m), the initial days of the trek involves hike through rice farms, forests and villages in the lower section of the Annapurna Conservation Area.

After 5 days you will reach the settlement of Manang at the elevation 3500m where you acclimatise and enjoy the mountain views. No place anywhere in Nepal looks similar to Mustangs’ landscape .It lies behind the Annapurna range in rain shadow area which blocks the rain and is desert- like landscape. From Manang you will continue walking ascending slowly and on day 12 of the trek you cross the classic Thorung La pass at 5416m, and set out for Muktinath, an important pilgrimage site for Hindus and Buddhists. Crossing Thorang La pass is technically easy and you would have a wonderful experience.

After crossing Thorang La pass you make easy but long descend into the Kali Gandaki river valley, witnessing Annapurna and Dhaulagiri mountains towering on either side. Then, you will visit Muktinath temple. If you are religiously inclined, you can take a bath in 108 taps and 2 ponds in the temple premises to relieve yourself of all your sins as per the sayings of Hindu religion.

Further down you will reach Tatopani on day 16 where you take bath in natural hot springs and relax. Then, you climb up Poon Hill, above Ghorepani, to enjoy magnificent mountain views. While returning to Pokhara you will walk through many beautiful Gurung villagesthat dominate this ancient trading salt route between Tibet and India. Accommodation and food is provided in every local lodge along the trail. The best time for this trek is from March to May, as you will see the colorful Rhododendron blooming along the trail at the lower part of the Annapurna region.
