The Annapurna Circuit trek in Nepal is a classic. In short time you will:
- be crossing the world's widest mountain pass in the world at an altitude of 5,414 meters
- see fantastic mountain terrain and be faced with the arid landscape of the Upper Manang, close to the Tibetan Plateau
- see Kali Gandaki, the world's deepest river gorge valley
- visit the Muktinath, a world famous Hindu Pilgrimage site
- be meeting with 3 local communities in Nepal, the Gurung, Manangi, and Thakali people
Taking the above factors into account it is no wonder that Annapurna Circuit is a famous trekking destination in Nepal. Since its inception in 1977, where the region was opened for trekking, it has had a great number of visitors.
This three weeks trek starts from Besisahar and goes along the Marshyangdi River, with great views of Mt. Manaslu and Himal Chuli to the east. Along the path we will be faced with varying trekking trails, many local villages and majestic mountain views.
The highest point of the trek is the Thorong La Pass, the world's widest pass at an altitude of 5,416m. In order to not reach this pass from the beginning (which would give us altitude sickness) we are trekking the Annapurna Circuit in an anti-clock-wise direction making sure that we gradually acclimatise to the increased heights.
To do this trek we recommend that you are reasonably fit. Should have doubts on your physical shape we highly recommend adding a porter who can carry up to 30 kgs for you (so 1 porter can be split by 2 people).
We are looking forward to taking you on a fantastic trek.
