Annapurna Circuit trekking route was opened to foreign trekkers in 1977. This trekking route was forbidden for outsiders before that. It is a popular and adventurous trekking route.
Starting from less than 1,000 meters in lush green valley, this three-week trek gives us a chance to explore the Himalayas from bottom up and from many different angles and perspectives. This trek commences from Bhulbhule having nice views of Manaslu and Himal Chuli.
The highest point of this trekking route is Thorung La Pass, at 5416 meters. 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 very harsh for many people to manage in one day.
As we descend to the west towards Muktinath, we continue to the barren Tibetan-like villages along Kali Gandaki – the world’s deepest gorge. We pass between the giant Annapurna and Dhaulagiri mountains.
