Annapurna Circuit Trekking


abc

Nepal is a Himalayan Country that sits at the roof of the world, stretching 500 miles from east to west and 150 miles from north to south. Within these borders can be found 8 of the world’s 10 highest mountains and undoubtedly the world’s best trekking areas. Closed to foreigners until 1949, Nepal has long been the ultimate destination for mountaineers and trekkers from all over the world. In addition, Nepal is a land of great diversity – it’s culture, religions, geography and wildlife fascinate and challenge the imagination.

 

VIN Treks and Tours: We provide a very good trekking and climbing service in Nepal. We do it through our local partners who have long experience  in this field of organising a wide variety of trips for clients from all over the world. The Satisfaction is guaranteed. We have launched this to generate some funds for our community projects for women, childrn, youth and teachers.

 

The Annapurna  region is that north of Pokhara in Central Nepal, and includes some of the world’s highest and most beautiful mountains. These include the Annapurna range, Dhaulagiri and Machhapuchhre – the famous fish-tail mountain that dominates the skyline above Pokhara. In addition this area boasts the Kali Gandaki, the world’s deepest gorge.

 

This classic trek circles the entire Annapurna massif and in so doing offers a spectacular variety of people and landscapes, from lowland farming country to alpine meadows to the Tibet-like country on the northern slopes of the Himalaya. We start in the foothills at Besi Sahar and rise after 6 days to the settlement of Manang at 3500m where we acclimatise and enjoy the mountain views. We continue to ascend and on day 10 of the trek we cross the famous Thorung La,  at 5416m, to Muktinath, an important pilgrimage site for Hindus and Buddhists.

 

From here we descend into the Kali Gandaki, with Annapurna and Dhaulagiri towering on either side. En route back to Pokhara we pass through the many beautiful hill villages that populate this ancient trading route between Tibet and India. We also visit the hot springs at Tatopani, and climb up Poon Hill, above Ghorapani, to enjoy magnificent mountain views. Accommodation and food is provided in the local lodges. Transport to Besi Sahar is by private coach and the return to Kathmandu from Pokhara is by air.
