The Annapurna Circuit Trek gives trekkers access to deeper and higher areas of the Annapurna massif. The outstanding Annapurna trek commences in Pokhara. Beginning in Syange, the first five days of the trek takes us through terraced farmlands of the Marshyangdi Valley, and finally to the hamlet of Manang. Among all of our trekking holidays, this trek leads us through diverse landscapes from lower terraced farmlands till we cross the Thorong La ( 5416 m / 17,165 ft ) to a barren, yet, exceptionally beautiful terrain. We enter the deepest gorge in the world, Kali Gandaki, after trekking through Muktinath, Jomsom and the apple orchards of Marpha till we end our trek in the foothills; en route we will witness a stunning sunrise from Poon Hill.
The construction of a dirt road along the Kali Gandaki has given this hike bad publicity. We have carefully tailored this route to bypass such motorable areas to help this trek retain its charm allure of the Annapurna experience.
