Annapurna Circuit Trek - Around Annapurnas
In brief
Best season for trekking October to November and March to April
The Annapurna Circuit is a popular trekking destination in Nepal. This region is attracting more than 70 percent of all trekkers in Nepal every year. This trek offers to see all aspects of green forests, tremendous mountain scenery, a mosaic of cultures of different ethnic groups.

The trail leads northwards initially, crossing paddy fields before dissecting the Marsyangdi river gorge, it passes through various interesting villages on route.

The journey initially comprises of a fairly steady ascent which eventually emerges (with a dramatic change of scenery) into the arid Manang valley. This region is much more tibetanlike in out look and lifestyle.

The following delightful few days are spent with sightseeings around the valley, which offers some tremendous views and some fascinating settlements.

A day is taken for side trekkings and for acclimatization purposes before continuing our tour by crossing Thorung-La (5,416 m). This is a long but very rewarding day with splendid views of Nilgiri, Dhaulagiri and Annapurna ranges.

We are visiting Muktinath, a holy pilgrimage site for both Hindu and Buddhists. In addition, Tilicho Lake (5,119 meters) is lying on one of the highest elevations of the world and the Kaligandaki gorge which is regarded as one of the deepest gorges on earth have been the facts that make people eager to visit the region. If you are making your trek in March-April, you will enjoy with colorful rhododendrons (the national flower of Nepal).
