Annapurna Full Circuit Trek is one of the world’s most beautiful treks, offering varied landscape, mountain scenery, and indigenous cultures. In recent years roads have been built along many of the sections of the Circuit in the Marshyandi Valley, this trek follows the full route and uses trails to avoid the jeep tracks. You begin the trekking journey from Kathmandu to Syange/ Jagat via Beshisahar, passing through the thick fir and rhododendron forests at lower altitude until you reach the higher altitude. Whilst trekking, you will pass through many human settlements belonging to diverse ethnic groups of people, meeting the local folks and enjoying the spectacular views of massive Himalayan Peaks – Mount Annapurnas and Manaslu. At higher altitude you will visit Manang village where you find Manangi people follow their own culture and traditional lifestyle, and it makes you feel as if you are visiting little Tibet.
After crossing the Thorung La Pass (5416m), you will descend into the sub-tropical Kali Gandaki Gorge, a busy pilgrimage and trade route that is especially used by Thakali and Mustangi ethnic people. The crossing over Thorong La Pass can be dangerous, especially during the unanticipated snowfall that happens from November to February.
You will follow the classic Annapurna Circuit trail, with an extension to visit Muktinath, a popular Hindu shrine, Tatopani and Ghorepani via the Kali Gandaki, the world’s deepest gorge. You will visit Gurung villages and experience the unique culture and tradition of the Gurung indigenous people of Nepal. During the trek, you will stay in traditional-style tea houses.
Apart from enjoying mountain views and cultural experiences of different places, the other beauty of this circuit trek is walking through the forest of Rhododendron that blooms in spring. To view the blooming of colorful Rhododendron flowers you must do the Annapurna Circuit Trek from March to May and you will be amazed to see the sights. The trek ends in Pokhara.
