Annapurna Circuit Trek
Perhaps the most popular trek in Nepal, the Annapurna Circuit entails a 100-mile plus circumnavigation of the Annapurna Range.

Overview:
Known for its range of diversity, from jungle to high alpine, you pass through ethnic villages with great views of the Annapurnas, Macchupucchre, Dhaulagiri, Manaslu and Langtang Himal.

Its popularity is proof that you won't be disappointed, but also a good reason to do this trek in the shoulder season to avoid the crowds.

Despite the controversy over continuing road construction deeper into the circuit, this is still one of Nepal's great treks. It offers a gentler acclimatization process, and many do this trek before heading over to Everest Base Camp.

Variations:
A visit Tilicho Lake, a day-trip half-way around the circuit to a 4950m pristine alpine lake.

A trek considered by many to be the best trek in Nepal offering all characteristic of Nepal. Green forests, the best mountain views and a variety of cultures and not to mention a good exercise. The trail leads northwards initially, crossing fields of paddy before dividing the Marshyangdi river gorge, it passes through various exciting villages on route.

The journey initially comprises of steep and narrow and the trail goes through deep forests which eventually emerges into the arid Manang valley. This region is much more like Tibetan highland and lifestyle.You have an extra day for acclimatization purposes before crossing of the Thorang-La pass (5,416 m). This is a long but very rewarding day with splendid views of Nilgiri, Dhaulagiri and Dhampus Peak amongst others.

From the pass a steep descent (2-3 hours) leads to Muktinath, a holy pilgrimage site for both Hindus and Buddhists situated in lower Mustang.

After crossing of the Thorang-La we follow the Kali Gandaki gorge via many exciting lower Mustang and Thakali villages. We rest up for some great food and a day at the hot springs at Tatopani before a further one day trekking to Ghorepani.

The wonderful overnight at Ghorepani and the following morning we are up early (at 5 a.m.) for the trek to Poon hill (45 munutes to 1 hour) for sunrise view over the Himalayas and head towards beautiful Tirkhedhung.

The final day is an easy descent to Nayapul and drive to Pokhara Hotel one and half hours.
