  • Experience Annapurna Circuit Trek, one of the best treks in Nepal
  • Visit Thorong-La Pass (5,416m) the noteworthy mountain pass
  • Revel in the magnificent views of the Annapurna mountain range
Annapurna Circuit Trek is one of the best treks in Nepal, perfect for trekkers who wish to explore the superb perspectives and landscapes of the southern and northern Himalayas.

The high point of the trek entails crossing of the 5414m high Throng Pass, from the arid valley of the upper Manang, home of Tibeto- Buddhists, down to the Hindu pilgrimage site of Muktinath, and the Kali Gandaki valley, the world's deepest river gorge, before heading down to Pokhara. Besides the mountain views, we encounter on this trek a variety of mountain communities of the Gurung, Manangi and Thakali people.

Annapurna region is best described as the most happening incentive trekking destination of Nepal. The Annapurna Circuit Trek has been proved as a highly praised and spectacular trekking route in the Annapurna region since it opened to foreign trekkers in 1977. This three weeks trek starts right from Besishahar and goes along the Marshyangdi River, with a great view of Manaslu and Himal Chuli to the east. This magnificent trek leads you to the fine village inhabited by a wide diversity of people from different ethnic groups, offering the spectacular and majestic view of the white Himalayas. As it continues to the north of the main Himalayan range on to the high and dry Tibetan Plateau, the scenery is equally breathtaking.

Trek through Thorong-La Pass (5,416m), the most noteworthy spot on this route. From Thorong-La Pass, the trail winds down to Muktinath, a revered and sacred spot for both Hindu and Buddhists. Near to Muktinath Sanctuary, visitors will see an endless blazing fire over the undergrounded water spring.

Immerse yourself in the splendid mountain scenery, from red rhododendron timberland forests completely in bloom in March and April, to thickly forested trails, to the necked slopes and awe-inspiring snow capped regions. The scenery on this trek is astonishing.

Over the years, the Annapurna Circuit Trek has become the best seller among all our trekking tours.The breathtaking mountain scenery and the beautiful ethnic villages justify the popularity of this route.

“I visited Nepal in April '16 and completed the 6 day Poonhill Trek. Probably one of my favorite vacations of all time! Rhododendrons in bloom with views of the Annapurnas... breathtaking.Our Nepal Lion Tours and Treks , shiva, was one of the best in the business. His English is great, and we had very clear communication over email while making the trekking plans beforehand,You can tell he loves his job and has a deep passion for his work, the Nepali people, and his homeland. During our trek, our comfort was his biggest concern, and he always made sure everything was to our liking. In the evenings, we'd spend some time chatting about Nepal, the culture, and he even taught us some Nepali card games.
After talking with other travellers, I believe our trekking rates were very competitive too.

I would highly recommend this company Nepal Lion Tours and Treks !

I had such a great time that I'm really hoping to visit Nepal again, but for a longer duration. One week was not enough!”

“5 Days Trekking in the beautiful Langtang Valley, and 2 days sightseeing in Katmandu by private jeep. Nepal Lion Tours and Treks were very accommodating, even helping us to celebrate a birthday mid-trek. The guide, Lale, was experienced and friendly. He made the trip hassle-free so that we could focus on taking in the views and meeting the friendly locals. Evidence of the earthquake could be seen, but we felt safe for the whole trek.”

4 - Very Good
“Nice trek, with beautiful views! Quit hard with the snow, but the guide was a great help! It was really good, distances per day was enough if you never do treks, well balanced. But a pity we didn’t see much from ghandruk, we hadn’t the time to look around because we had to go to the bus. And there was said that ghandruk was beautiful to walm around and see the culture, so that was a pity. But overall really well balanced and Nice trip!! With a kind and helpfull guide.”
