"Do not be an introvert in such a Once in a Life Time trek, exploring adventure options is a highly rewarding experience."

Annapurna Circuit trek is an entire round trek of Annapurna range, covering 300km of walking through lush green forests, culturally rich villages, majestic mountains and miles of snow. Beginning from the hilly region of Besisahar, the trek passes through the culturally opulent villages like Pisang and Manang, climbs up across the highest pass in the world- Thorong-La Pass (5,416m/17,764ft) and slides down to the Apple Orchard Jomsom, via Muktinath. The qualities that one can enjoy from this trek ranges from exploring the natural and cultural wonders, observing tribal lifestyles and sightings of rare flora and fauna of the Great Himalaya region.

Dominated by high hills and mountains with most of the parts still inaccessible, Annapurna Circuit trek follows the ancient but beaten path used as trade route between Nepal and Tibet in ancient times, mainly for trading "Salt."

It feels like we are horizontally in front of the majestic peaks. The panoramic views of the mountain peaks, such as Annapurna, Pisang peak, and several others will definitely allure us. We notice the contrast in the landscape and vegetation from today. The cold, dry climate creates a much harsher environment.
