Annapurna Circuit Trek is a striking and strenuous trekking in the Annapurna region. The trail lies in the Annapurna Conservation Area. It is also known as Round Annapurna Trek or Annapurna Thorong Pass Trek. Walking through the Marshyangdi River bank and passing the valleys, you cross the highest Himalayan pass of the world and connect to the Mustang region, following the dusty trail of the Kaligandaki windy valley.

After a long drive from Kathmandu to Khudi, Round Annapurna Trek begins with an excursion through the ethnic villages and through the bank of the Marshyangdi River. This trek offers breathtaking waterfalls and the lush forests. Sometimes, you walk through the canyon and again ascend to the forest. Pisang and Manang like villages are the Tibetan influenced villages. A side trip to the Gangapurna Lake helps to acclimatize to the increasing altitude. The treeless region begins as you walk to Yak Kharka, Thorong Phedi and Thorong High Camp. It is a glacial zone. Reaching to the top of Thorong La, you can explore the scenic views of the Annapurna Himalayan panorama, Dhaulagiri, Manaslu and Lamjung range. Around Annapurna Trek connects two different regions. The Mustang region is another part that lies in the Himalayan rain shadow area. It is like the Tibetan plateau. Muktinath temple is a renowned pilgrimage destination and the trek goes through the windy Jomsom valley after Kagbeni.

Vertex Holiday organizes Annapurna Circuit Trekking by offering expert Annapurna guides, customized itinerary and the cultural aspect of the respected villages. For the dazzling trek, please, contact us and get proficient services.
