Annapurna Circuit Trek:-
We welcome you to one of the best trekking destinations across the world! Our 15 days Annapurna circuit takes to you a different world where 100s of waterfalls flow endless water, one of it’s kind (nowhere in the world you will find so many waterfalls), where mighty snow peak mountains mesmerize you and the localities treat you with joy and love to the fullest!
The first part of trek goes through lower elevation Himalayan zone, where you are confronted with many waterfalls. This zone is full of lush green forests and you can see many table top mountain villages with their beautiful terraced farming. Once elevation goes high you will find beautiful alpine forest with mesmerizing views then you will enter to a treeless old desert which is exceptionally beautiful and every place in this area is like a finest painting.
It starts from village of Bhulbhule region which is at an elevation of 840 meters(2,760 feet). It is a small and beautiful village on the bank of Marshyangdi River(we will follow this river for most of the part in our trek). Then we will proceed to high elevation day by day. We will stay and visit many places like Jagat, Dharapani, Chame, Pisang, Manang, Yak Kharka, Throng Phedi, Thorng La Pass, Muktinath, Kagbeni and Jomsom during our 15-day Annapurna circuit trekking. The highest and toughest elevation we will encounter (summit) during the trek is Throng La Pass (5,416 meters. 17,769 feet high). The route goes past the following mountains, Manaslu (8,163 meters, eighth highest mountain), LangtangHimal, Annapurna II and IV, Annapurna III, Gangapurna, Annapurna I(8,091 meters, is the tenth highest mountain) and Dhaulagiri.
We will see the Buddhist culture once we reach Chame, from here till the end of our trek, we will see different type of cultures at one place. In Chame, Pisang and Manag are Gurung people with their unique cultural heritage but in Mustang(Muktinath, Kagbeni, Jomsom) these people are truly Tibetan Buddhist(in-fact once upon a time Mustang was part of Tibetan History), here you can see true Tibetan Buddhist culture. Braga, one of the oldest monasteries is situated in this region.
After getting down from Throng La Pass, you will reach Muktinath, which is a holy place for Hinduism and Buddhism. Muktinath is a small pagoda style wooden temple in an elevation of 3,800 meters(12,467 feet) the best part of is, this place is very picturesque. Muktinath is a prominent temple in Nepal, lots of people visit this temple from India and Nepal. Once you trek down from Muktinath through the mighty Kali Gandaki River you will find a complete different zone. The views of treeless grey mountains and sky burials on the cliffs of mountains are really unique experience.
