Annapurna Circuit Trek Nepal

Annapurna Around Trek

Annapurna Round Trek also is known famously as the Annapurna Circuit Trek is the most visited trekking trail in the world. This is probably the only long detour of the world which is diversified in terms of nature and culture as well. Trekkers will traverse through high altitude passes, temperate – alpine forests, waterfalls, rivers, villages, temples, and monasteries with the gigantic mountain peaks on the backdrop. The route is famous for the walking adventure as well as cycling adventure. Either way, the trail has the unique place among hikers and trekkers as being the most alluring trekking course of the world.

Annapurna Round Trek starts with the bus driver to Lamjung district headquarter Besisahar. Trekkers these days further take the bus drive to Chame in a graveled road before starting the walking adventure. The trail is long detour but the start of the road network as far as Manang has curtailed the distance of this trekking route. For the safety issues, we will only take the bus or private vehicle drive to Chame for the start of the walking journey. Trekkers will take the acclimatization break in Manang upon reaching the village via Pisang Village. The Manang village is the only large village of human settlement on the trail before crossing the Thorong La Pass (5416 m). Watermills and small hamlets of Thakali and Tibetans as encountered on the way will act as a motivational factor for every trekker as it will provide a chance for them to understand the strenuous Himalayan lifestyle of Nepalese people. The chance to witness amazing harmony between Buddhism and Hinduism in Nepal as depicted in nunnery and temple of Muktinath also might dazzle trekkers. Every trekker can elongate their journey further to Ghorepani Poon Hill via Tatopani or they can simply take a flight back to Pokhara from Jomsom.
