Annapurna circuit trek | Annapurna round trek

The Annapurna Circuit takes you right around the Annapurna Massif. It was in the past recognized as Nepal's 'trek-with-everything'. Green forests, tremendous mountain scenery with a mosaic of fascinating cultures.
The trail Annapurna Round Trekking used to take around eighteen to twenty days but in recent years a road has been built to Jomosom and many trekkers choose to leave the trek after crossing the Thorong Pass (5400 mtrs) after about twelve days in. The trek takes in fascinating villages, crossing fields of paddy before dissecting the Marshyangdi river gorge.
The ascent towards The Manang Valley is fairly steady and when it does finally emerge into the valley  you are greeted with some fantastic mountain scenery in amongst a fascinating and very different cultural setting. The valley is predominantly Tibetan in lifestyle and outlook and the next few days are spent traveling through some delightful Tibetan like settlements with tremendous views.
At Himalaya Arirang Trek we take a day out for some side trekking and acclimatization before we tackle the stiff ascent of the Thorang-La (5416m). The day over the pass is long but very rewarding, there are some fantastic views of Nilgiri, Dhaulagiri and Dhampus Peak, among others.
From the pass there is a steep  descent of around three hours until we reach the pilgrimage site of Muktinath. The settlement has been a holy place for both Hindus and Buddhists for many centuries. Our trek back follows the Kali Gandaki River gorge (the deepest gorge in the world) travelling through some fascinating Lower Mustang and Thakali villages. Kagbeni for example has great Tibetan style architecture and culture. Marpha is renowned for its apple production and the making of both fine cider and brandy. At Tatopani (which means 'hot water') we relax  for a day,it is both a great place for food and a bath in the hot springs..
After leaving Tatopani a further two days hike upwards to Ghorepani.
The next morning we need to be up early for the trek to Poon Hill, one of the best spots to see and photograph the sunrise over the Himalayas.
On our return our last night is spent in the beautiful large Gurung village of Ghandruk.
The last day is an easy, downhill all the way to Nayapul where transport awaits for the one and a half hour journey back to Pokhara.
