Around Annapurna Circuit
The Annapurna circuit trail takes us through an epic trek – from lush green valleys to the arid Himalayan desert, mountain glaciers to gushing rivers, stunning peaks of the some of the highest peaks of the world, including Annapurna I, II, and III, Dhaulagiri, Tukuche to name a few. Traversing predominantly through the districts of Manang and Mustang, we are also fascinated by the culture of the ethnic people of the region – the ‘Mananges’ and the ‘Thakalis’.
Our trek begins from Besi Shar, an idyllic settlement alongside Marshyangdi River some 5 hours drive from Kathmandu. Crossing lush green paddy fields through the villages of Jagat and Chame, we notice a stark change in landscape once we cross the 3,000 meters mark. Once in Manang observe panoramic views of the majestic Himalayas, including peaks of Annapurna II, III and IV. After Manang, we make our way towards Chulu West, set up high camp and take in the close-up views of mountains. Make our way towards Thorang La Pass (5416m), another highlight and reach Mustang, take in the deep valley, stay a night in Jomsom before flying to Pokhara, and back to Kathmandu.
