“An astonishingly beautiful area to explore…………peace and divine, worthwhile to step in”

The Annapurna Circuit is viewed as one of the best trekking trails on the planet. From the average Nepalese farmland to the dry and windswept towns of Manang and Pisang where individuals still take after Tibetan society, to intersection the Thorung La Pass, the circuit includes an encounter so shifted and rich that it will abandon you entranced… 
We trek past pleasant peak Brahmin and Gurung towns, with their terraced fields and staircases cleared with cut stones. On the way, we cross timberlands of conifer evaded by murmuring Himalayan streams and flavor entrancing perspectives of snowcapped Manaslu, Himal Chuli, Dhaulagiri and Annapurna. Partly through our trek, we drench our tired muscles at the hot spring at Chame. Passing vast chortens and mani dividers we achieve the town of Pisang and afterward Manang, a remote mountain town encompassed by the magnificent Annapurna II (7937m), Annapurna IV (7525m), Annapurna III (7555m), Gangapurna (7455m) and Tilicho Peak (7134m).

We ascend to Thorung Phedi and climb higher till we achieve the most astounding purpose of our trek, the Thorung La Pass at 5416m. In the wake of crossing through the pass we dive to the heavenly hallowed place of Muktinath (3800m). A journey site for both Hindu and Buddhists, Muktinath is celebrated internationally for the Muktinath Temple committed to Lord Vishnu or Avalokiteshwara as the Buddhists call him, the Jwala Mai Temple with the unceasing fire, and some aged Buddhists cloisters. We go downhill to Jomsom, a spot known for its well kept hotels and crusty fruit-filled treats, and afterward to Pokhara, where we finish our Annapurna Circuit journey.
