The tour Annapurna Circuit Via Kang La And Nar starts and ends in Kathmandu. It is a trekking tour that takes 18 days taking you through Pisang, Bhulbhule, Jomsom and 11 other destinations in Nepal. Annapurna Circuit Via Kang La And Nar is a guided small group tour that includes accommodation, transport, meals and others.

A dramatic trek into the remote region of Nar coupled with two high pass crossings at Kang La and Thorong La.. This classic Himalayan trek, first opened in 1977, is still magnificent and just got better with our updated 2020 itinerary. We follow the usual Annapurna circuit and trek into the secluded and rugged valleys of Nar, a former trading town connecting to the ancient Kingdom of Mustang. This trek offers incredible geographical and cultural diversity ranging from Hindu villages in the lush foot hills to the Tibetan Buddhist settlements in the far west. We navigate through alpine meadows to reach the base of Kang La and be rewarded with stunning views of countless 6000m peaks looming in the distance. After cross Kang La Pass (5320m) we rejoin the main trekking trails through to Thorong. There is a dramatic change as we trek north of the Great Himalayan Divide and cross the Thorong La (5416m). We are now on the Tibetan Plateau, a stark and rugged landscape, where the culture is predominantly Buddhist. We follow the Kali Gandaki Valley, one of the deepest gorges on earth and into the heart of the towering Annapurnas and Dhaulagiri. Stunning landscapes, diverse culture and high pass crossings - this is one of Annapurna's finest treks.

“The trip was mind blowing in the sense of where we were, how we saw it and the scale of the scenery. But World Expeditions made it possible for us to see that whilst camping without us having to worry about any of the work of camping. The team that made it possible were outstanding in every way and I can't praise them enough. How you did this trip for the money I have no idea, it was excellent in every way. Thank you.”

“Nepal is a beautiful country, stunning scenery and wonderful people. Progress and development is changing the countryside and it is an interesting time of transition. Seek out the isolated rural beauty at every opportunity.”

“World Expeditions offered a true wilderness adventure. The trek was challenging (in a good way) and exceptionally well managed for acclimatisation. Our guide Harka and his team were incredibly professional, genuinely caring and focused on ensuring we enjoyed the amazing Himalaya mountains. The camps were very comfortable and the food was plentiful and varied.”

“What a wonderful experience! Nepal is the most beautiful country with an extremely positive vibe from people who do not have much. I have returned home humbled by such wonderful people. Harka - our leader and all his team worked continually and were always smiling - ready to help at all times. The kitchen staff produced incredible meals - sometimes having to carry water from afar and cook in difficult conditions. Nothing was too much for them. Thank you to Harka and his wonderful team!”
