Annapurna Circuit Trek is one of the best and rewarding treks in the world. Round Annapurna Region Trekking offers captivating Himalayan mountain scenery, flora and fauna and the variety of ethnic Nepalese cultures and traditions. While trekking, we cross two different river valleys and encircle the Annapurna massif. With the construction of the road, the total length of the trekking route varies between 160–230 km. Depends on where we use motor transportation and where the trek ends.

Annapurna Full Circuit Trek begins in the lowland paddy fields and slowly gains altitude. The trail passes through oak and pine forests and eventually emerges into high desert land at Manang (3597 m.). One has to cross the highest mountain pass at the altitude of 5,416 m/17769 ft while approaching to the Thorong La Pass.

Close up views of the Annapurna Himalayan range (40 miles between the two river valleys exist at twelve 7000 m peaks and many more above the 6000m peaks which we come all along the trail.

Beyond Thorong-La Pass descending trail takes us to Muktinath, the important holy shrine for both Hindu and Buddhists. This part of the area is also interesting. Close to Muktinath temple, one can view eternal burning flame over the underground water spring.

Varied ecosystems, diverse ethnic cultures and an ever-changing landscape – lush, green paddy fields, and oak forests, arid deserts and the world’s deepest river gorge make this trek one of the most popular in the world.

One can see the full blooming of red rhododendrons in March to April. The landscape along the Annapurna Circuit Trekking route is amazing. Clouds prevail more frequently, but clear days are still common.
