The Annapurna Circuit trek is known as the most diverse, and one of most scenic treks in the world. The complete circuit of Annapurna is an estimated 300km, beginning in sub-tropical forests below 800m in altitude, and passing through rice paddies, pint forests, and Tibet-like countryside in Manang, on the northern slope of the Himalayas. The scenery on the trek is said to change every day, and some areas of Manang have only been open to trekkers since 1977.
The 'Circuit' Trek After Manang, at 5416m, over the high altitude ice deserts of Thorung La Pass, down to Muktinath Jomsom until we reach the forested areas below Tukuche. One of the many highlights of the Annapurna Circuit includes the Kali Gandaki River, which cuts deeply between Mt. Dhaulagiri (8,167m) to the west and Mt. Annapurna (8,091m) to the east. The river’s ravine is five times deeper than the Grand Canyon, making it the deepest gorge in the world. Continuing down the Kali Gandaki gorge, surrounded by stunning views of mountains and diverse forest flora and fauna, we pass through Ghorepani, taking in the magnificent sunrise view from nearby Poon Hill. This is where the Annapurna Circuit trek ends, and we can relax near the lake city of Pokhara.
