Annapurna Circuit Trek is one of the most popular trekking routes in Nepal. Featuring the highest mountain pass (Throng La Pass), Monasteries and villages as well as the Muktinath pilgrimage site.
The landscape of the Manang Valley is picturesque, with green farmland topped by snow-capped peaks. As we trek ever higher to cross the pass at Throng La we end up at the holy pilgrimage site revered by both Hindu’s and Buddhists at Muktinath. It is here that the scenery changes and we are introduced to the stark barren landscape of Mustang. Culturally it’s very Tibetan in this area and Kagbeni is a highlight with it’s Tibetan style village on the banks of the magnificent Kali Gandaki Gorge.
This is a beautiful trek that combines a variety of culture and differing scenery of the area.

To enable all expedition members to acclimatize well and hence maximize their chances of success, our expedition programs are prepared with sufficient time for acclimatization. Adaptation to the altitude takes time and there can be no short-cuts, even if supplementary oxygen is used in the final stages. The atmospheric pressure at the base camp is half of that at the sea level. A thorough program of acclimatization is built into the itinerary which consists of regulated height ascents, followed by descents and rests before the final ascent to the summit. This will prevent the climbers to get rid from altitude sickness.
