Views on snow-capped mountains

Annapurna, Manaslu, Gangapurna, Tilicho, Thorong, Nilgiri, Dhaulagiri

Annapurna Circuit Trek is one of the most fascinating treks in the Annapurna Region. It is a bit challenging trek with a rewarding view of Annapurna IV, III, II, Mt. Manasalu, Gangapurna, Tilicho Peak, Throng Peak, Nilgiri, Mt. Dhaulagiri and many other snow capped peaks, unique landscapes and cultures. Our trip to Annapurna Circuit trek start from a scenic drive to Bulbule which is 195 km from Kathmandu. In a clear weather during the drive to trekking starting point in Bulbule we can see Ganesh Himal, Lamjung Himal, Annapurna Range and many residential villages and rice fields. Thorong La Pass (5416m) is the highest point of this adventure trek. During this trip you have an opportunity to explore with local culture, traditions and the daily life of people in western part of Nepal.

Local traditions, customs and everyday life

Trail from Pisang to Muktinath

If you are keen on participating in an adventure and rewarding trek in Nepal, you will surely not be disappointed choosing this trip. The highlight of this trip is the route from Pisang to Muktinath from where you can see the closest view of mountains, a variety of fauna and flora and Buddhist cultural monuments like stupas, chortens, and monasteries. Once we reach Manag we will have an acclimatization day which we will use for a local excursion. This is going to be one of the best days in your trip too. The higher we go from Manang towards Thorong La Pass, the less human settlements we pass on our way. Once you reach Throng Phedi or High Camp, you will find it already demanding but still you will feel it is worth doing due to the amazing surroundings.

Sunrise at 3210m

Poon Hill amazing view of the Himalayas

Finally, the day to Muktinath from Throng Phedi or High Camp is a pretty long and the most challenging day of this trip but the amazing nature and the mountains always inspire you to keep going to the high pass of 5416m. After getting to Muktinath you will see completely different landscapes of Mustang - a desert part of Nepal. Depending on the length of your holiday, you can end the trip by flying from Jomsom to Pokhara or take a bus directly from Muktinath to Pokhara. However, the road isn’t very smooth for a drive. It is recommended either to take a flight from Jomsom to Pokhara or to take a short circuit trek towards Poon Hill as mentioned in our itinerary. Getting to Poon Hill after this circuit trek and watching the sunrise over the Himalayas from Poon Hill (3210 m) is a nice and, frankly speaking unique ending of this adventure trip – just like the icing on the cake!
