Annapurna Circuit Trek - 13 Days

The Annapurna Trek is one of the best trekking tails where you get to experience the dramatic changes from lush forests to arid rocky deserts on the other side of the Himalayas. Here you get to connect with Gurung and Thakali people, spend time with them to know more about their world, try some local recipes, and enjoy the spectacular views. The classic trek in the Annapurna region is the Annapurna Circuit. The trek encircles the famous Annapurna massif passing through sub-tropical plains in the Himalayan foothills, trans-Himalayan Manang and then entering Mustang Valley. It then crosses the highest elevation Thorang La pass (5,416m). The trail then joins the Kali Gandaki River that flows through the deepest gorge on earth.
The trek starts from Capital City; Kathmandu and ends at second Biggest City; Pokhara. The trail following Besisahar further follow up the partly constructed road as far as the small market town of Kudhi, the first few days of the trek goes along the Marsyangdi River.  You encounter countless high waterfalls that cascade down into the main river while the skyline is dominated by the Annapurna and Manaslu ranges. From Manang, the trail goes uphill through high alpine pastures until the small tea-houses at Thorang Phedi. The trek on the following day goes towards Thorang La pass (5,416m), from where the long descent to Muktinath for a night halt. There are a good number of tea-houses at Muktinath as it is a very popular pilgrimage site for both Hindus and Buddhists.
