Overview

Annapurna circuit trek in Nepal is known as one of best trekking trails in the world. The Annapurna Circuit trek goes through Marshyangdi River valley which brings you almost to the base of Gangapurna mountain and into the Manang valley known as the Himalayan Shangri-La, where you will spend two remarkable days gazing at the snow-covered peaks above you and the beauty of the landscapes around you. An amazing trekking route that circles around the magnificent Annapurna mountain range, the experience this Annapurna circuit trek offers is unbeatable.

The adventurous climb of Thorong-la pass  the highest pass in this trek – at 5416 meters is the highlight of the whole Annapurna circuit trek and once you are on the top, it has the perfect 360-degree views which takes your breath away and leaves you wondering with your jaws open!

Once we descend from the pass, we will witness the views of Mustang Region which is a colorful landscape that is home to Tibetan Buddhist and numerous friendly Buddhist  people.

We will then follow the deepest gorge on earth – the Kali Gandaki River Gorge- which is guarded by the giant 8,000  peaks of Mt. Dhaulagiri – 8,167 meters and Mt. Annapurna I – 8,091 meters.

We will then use the unchanged ancient paths that were used as trade routes between Nepal, Tibet and India. We will also pass through the apple and wheat farming areas, interact with local Thakali people and share our moments with sheep and yak herders.

The adventure trekking experience along with a rich cultural immersion that you experience in this Annapurna Circuit Trekking is unparalleled in the world.
Annapurna circuit trek was voted as one of the best trekking trail in the world.
The New York times covered an article about Annapurna circuit trek and Earthbound Expeditions few years back.
