Annapurna Circuit Trekking

The Annapurna Circuit trekking is the longest trek of the area starts from Chame and we enter the rain-shaded trans- Himalayan zone of Nyashang (Manang valley). Manang is the home of Nyashang people who hailed from Tibet a long time ago. The valley is surrounded by some of the most beautiful and high peaks like Annapurna itself, Gangapurna, Tilicho peak, Pisang and Chulus. Local people work in their in-house business of lodge-keeping and yak farms during off season. 

Thorong-la pass (5416m) provides breathtaking view of both sides, Manang and Mustang. The other side of the trek in the Kaligandaki valley, Muktinath and lower Mustang, is equally interesting in terms of trekking, nature and culture. Muktinath temple sets an example of religious tolerance being worshiped by different religions in same shrine (i.e. Hindu, Buddhist and Bon). The Lower  Kaligandaki valley is considered the deepest gorge made between Dhaulagiri in the west, and Annapurna in the east both above 8000m. There are several end points of this trek. But the ultimate place to finish is Pokhara, situated in a beautiful valley surrounded by lakes and mountains.
