Annapurna Circuit Deposit
Since it opened to foreign trekkers in 1977, the Annapurna Circuit Trek has become renowned as one of the most spectacular trekking routes in the world with lush green valleys and fascinating villages that offer impressive snow-capped views of the white Himalayas.
This trek is something special. It is the king of treks in this region. The highest point of the Annapurna Circuit is the magnificent Thorong La Pass at the top of the valley at 5,416 m. Due to the difficulties of crossing the pass, the circuit is usually walked in a counter-clockwise direction. Traveling clockwise, the longer ascent and shorter descent from west to east is too much for many people to manage in one day.
As we descend to the west at Muktinath, from the pass we continue to the barren Tibetan like village of the Kali Gandaki – the world’s deepest gorge, passes between the giant Annapurna and Dhaulagiri mountains. After you cross the Thorong La Pass from Manang to Muktinath, we head to Tatopani for hotsprings and climb Poon Hill before descending to Pokhara.
