About Annapurna Circuit Trek
Annapurna Circuit Trek in Nepal is the most enthralling and captivating diversified walking detour. It is probably the most cinematic as well as cultural excursion towards high Himalayan belts of Nepal. Trekkers can experience the high altitude passes, waterfalls, villages and differing vegetation in one single trip.
Annapurna Circuit Trek is also known popularly as the Annapurna Round Trek or Thorong La Pass Trek. It is the only trekking in Nepal that offers diversified attractions from the cultural and natural point of view. Trekkers start their journey from the hilly region and reach the Himalayan region then end the trek in the valley.
Trekkers will be able to encounter temperate deciduous forests, coniferous forests, alpine forests, Himalayan deserts, snowline, mountains, and gorges. Brahmins, Chhetris, Gurung, Magar, Tibetan, Thakali, and Sudras are the people residing around the trail.
Annapurna Circuit Trek used to be the long detour a few years back. However, the construction of the hilly roads has curtailed the walking route. The attraction has not deteriorated though.
The trip starts from Kathmandu to Besisahar. Trekkers will then take the private or local jeep towards Chamje. In some months jeep can be taken directly to Manang village. However, our itinerary doesn’t allow trekkers to go directly to Manang. It brings lots of risks among trekkers regarding the high altitude sickness.
We will spend two days in Manang for the proper acclimatization. Strolling around this unique mythical village will offer the breathtaking view of landscape and experience of monasteries. The most challenging part of this trek is the crossing of Thorong La Pass. Though the walking is slightly treacherous the view is astounding. One can observe the panoramic view of mountains including the Mt. Manaslu as well.
