ANNAPURNA CIRCUIT

  1. It is one of the most popular and classical treks in the Annapurna region. The trekking trail was opened in 1977 and now it has been considered one of the twenty best trekking trails all over the world. The trek starts and ends in the lush, green foothills of the Annapurna, dotted with Hindu villages. Yet north of the Great Himalaya divide the stark landscape of the Tibetan Plateau where the culture becomes predominantly Buddhist. We ascend the Marsyandi Valley before heading to the wild, windswept 5416m Thorong La (pass) and around the Annapurna massif. We then head back down the great Kali Gandhaki Valley (the deepest gorge on earth with Annapurna and Dhaulagiri towering some 7,000 m (above) and return to Pokhara where we complete our trek. You will trek through different small villages like Khudi, Bhulbule, Ngadi, Lampata, Bahundanda, Jagat, Khorte, Dharapani etc.
