Annapurna Circuit (17 days / 16 nights)
On this trek, you will experience it all, close proximity to more than a dozen towering Himalayan peaks, lush forests in Besi Sahar, glaciers near the kingdom of Manang, barren landscape with strong winds lashing on your face in Muktinath, and the highlight of the trek: crossing the snow line to reach an elevation of 5416 meters at the Thorung La Pass, higher even than Everest Base Camp.
The panoramic views from Thorung La pass are unparalleled, with beautiful mountains closing in on all sides. Then we make our descent to barren Muktinath, a holy place for both Hindu and Buddhist pilgrims.
The trek can end at Jomsom, from where you can catch a flight back to Kathmandu, or continue trekking down to Pokhara through the famous Ghorepani.
