highlights
  • Poon Hiil, One of the Best Viewpoints in the World to See a Panoramic View of Mountains.
  • Thorong La Pass (5,416 m), the Highest Point of the Annapurna Circuit Trek.
  • Manang Valley, close to the Nepal - Tibet Border.
  • Muktinath Temple.
Since it opened to foreign trekkers in 1977, the Annapurna Circuit has become renowned as one of the most spectacular trekking routes in the world with lush green valleys and fascinating villages that offer impressive snow-capped views of the white Himalayas. Starting from less than 1,000 meters, it gives us a chance to explore the Himalayas from bottom to top and from many different angles and perspectives. This three week trek starts right from Syange which goes along the Marshyangdi River, with great views 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 spectacular and majestic views of the Himalayas. Continuing to the north of the main Himalayan range to the high and dry Tibetan Plateau, the scenery is equally breathtaking.

The highest point of the Annapurna Circuit is the Thorong La Pass at the top of the valley at 5,416 m. Due to the difficulties of crossing the pass, the circuit is usually walked in a counter-clockwise direction. Traveling clockwise the longer ascent and shorter descent from west to east is too much for many people to manage in one day.

As we descend to the west at Muktinath, from the pass we continue to the barren Tibetan like village of the Kali Gandaki – the world’s deepest gorge, passes between the giant Annapurna and Dhaulagiri mountains. After you cross the Thorong La Pass from Manang to Muktinath, we head to Tatopani hotsprings and climb to Poon Hill before descending to Pokhara.

“a wonderfully guided trek in a beautiful country. The variety of landscape, fauna and flora amazing. lovely tea house. my guide and porter looked after extremely well. took account of my abilities and checked my breathing was ok as we went on. The timing of starting out was perfect and we were the first people on the Thorang La to see the sunrise. He took account of my wishes and consulted me on the walk each day. I couldn't have asked for a more enjoyable experience.”

“If you want a trip with incredible scenery, awesome service, gracious guides and porters as well as a very reliable and trust-worthy trekking company, this trip is for you. We had such a wonderful yet challenging experience--all made fantastic by our guide and porters! We definitely plan to go to Nepal again and use Ace the Himilaya again!!”
Great time with my mother along too!
Tim Stanley From USA At

“Santosh and the Ace the Himalaya team were great! They were completely prepared to bend over backward to see to it we had a safe but adventurous trip. My mother (who is in her sixties) came as well. You would have thought the porters and guide were escorting their own mothers. We ended up doing some pretty exciting things like a jeep ride through a waterfall, walking up to Poon Hill for the most glorious sunrise of my life, ascending the Thorung La pass (17,700 feet).”

Today is a long trek starting before sunrise at 4 am to reach the pass by 9-10 am. Otherwise weather conditions (strong winds) will greatly affect the journey, particularly at the Thorong La Pass. We climb steeply on a regular route which is quite easy to follow. However, some problems may arise due to altitude and snow. It often causes terrible problems to cross the pass if it is covered by heavy snow. After four hours of climbing to the pass marked by the chortens and prayer flags, we will be rewarded with stunning views from the top of the pass. Another four hours of walking will take us to the holy town of Muktinath (3,800 m).

Muktinath means place of nirvana and is home to the Muktinath Temple as well as several monasteries. It is said that all sorrows we feel are relieved when visiting the Temple. It is a sacred pilgrimage site for both Hindus and Buddhists. The prime pilgrimage month is September. The Temple is dedicated to Lord Vishnu and has 108 waterspouts around it. Another attraction nearby is the Jwala Mai Temple which has a gorgeous natural spring and an eternal flame fueled by natural gas.

So now, we are at the other side of the Thorong La Pass, most of the land we see will be dry and looks somewhat like the desert. We will continue our trek walking by the bank of Kali Gandaki River. Most of the time, we will descend with closer view of stupas and old traditional houses and civilization of Mustang. Marpha is the home to the legendary apple orchids. We will be able to taste the apples and the myriad apple products like pies and wine. Apple Brandy is another local specialty that we may be lucky enough to taste en route.
