The Annapurna Circuit is one of Nepal’s, if not the world’s, most famous treks. This classic Annapurna Circuit trek is a breathtakingly gorgeous and interesting journey. Deep gorges, desolate high mountain routes, Buddhist temples, charming farming towns, and all of the Annapurna Massif’s major peaks, all of these beauties can be witnessed during the Annapurna Circuit Trek.
We drive down the Pokhara road from Kathmandu and then follow the Marshyangdi River to Besisahar to reach the start of the trek. The trek proper begins here, with suspension bridges crossing and re-crossing the gorge cut by the Marshyangdi River until arriving in Manang, the route’s largest settlement. Here, an acclimatization day is taken in preparation for traversing the Thorung La pass, the trek’s highest point at 5416m. From there, it’s a gradual descent to Jomsom, with lots of ups and downs along the route. Our journey comes to a close with a breathtaking mountain flight to Pokhara, followed by a second flight to Kathmandu.
An extensive network of paths connects the Circuit and Annapurna Base Camp hikes, as well as the Sanctuary walk. The hike ends at Annapurna Base Camp, at 4,130 meters, with a 360-degree vista of the range. The trek begins in the rain forest before heading into the high mountains. There are several paths that lead to this interesting trekking site. This journey is often known as an Annapurna Circuit Trek since it follows multiple paths to a junction where a single major trail leads the way. The journey, which begins almost on the plains of Pokhara, passes through a diversity of terrain, cultures, and vistas in a short amount of time.
