Encapsulating adventure, panoramic view and serenity all in a single experience, the Annapurna Circuit Trekking
is considered one of the best treks in the country, and the one with the most spectacular of views. Towering above the beautiful valley of Pokhara, the Annapurna Circuit Trek
is an ideal trek for anyone who seeks adventure and has a longing for peace and serenity.
The Annapurna Circuit trek, which lasts for about three weeks, starts from the village of Besisahar in Lamjung and advances towards the banks of the beautiful Marsyangdi river. One can witness the majestic view of the serene Manaslu and Himal Chuli to the east. Further along the trek, you enter many small villages where you will believe that the time has stood still, with no hint of urbanisation whatsoever, isolated from the outer world, and strongly holding on to their age old traditions. People from different ethnic groups may be seen residing together in the same village, living peacefully and sharing their hospitality with their guests. Throughout the way, one can take the view of the high erect peaks, all covered in snow, and the small, yet very beautiful monasteries that are sparsely located along the way. The trek then advances towards north to the main Himalayan range and passes through the high and dry Tibetan Plateau.
The Thorongla Pass, which is at the highest point of the trek at 5416 meters above the sea level, is full of difficulties. The rugged terrain and the high altitude make the trek a rather tough one, but it is worth a try. The circuit is completed by travelling counter clockwise across the pass. The clockwise trip has longer ascent and shorter descent so very few people manage to complete it within a day. The trip follows a descent towards the west from Muktinath through a typical Tibetan village. Along the way, one can experience the sheer magnanimity of the deepest gorge of the world as the Kaligandaki river passes between the two giant peaks Annapurna and Dhaulagiri. Once the Thorong La pass is crossed, the final days of the circuit trek commences from Jomsom to Pokhara.
