Overview

Trekking to Annapurna region is one of the most sought after trekking for both the national and international tourists. Generally, it takes about 20 days to complete the trek around the Annapurna circuit. But for those having limited and wishing to trek around the region, the short trek around Annapurna circuit has been specially designed to complete the trek in just 16 days. The major places we will be visiting during this trek are Manag valley, Thorong La Pass, Muktinath, Jomsom and Pokhara. Moreover, the beautiful mountain peaks like Mount Annapurna, Hiuchuli, Pisang peak, Tilicho peak, Gangapurna and many others accompany you throughout the trek, adding beauty and pleasure to the trek.

During the trek, we get to visit one of the historical places in Nepal and that is Manang. This place has a historical significance as being the important place for yak and salt trade between Nepal and Tibet. It still remains a trading point in northern Nepal. We get to meet people in the village and hear their stories as well. The Manang valley also offers us the chance to enjoy the beautiful vistas. The Marsyangdi river flowing the valley is a major attraction. In addition, we get to enjoy the beauty of mountain peaks as well.

During the trek, we pass through many villages where we get a chance to enjoy the traditional and unique culture of Gurung community. Several monasteries, gompas and chortens decorated with colourful Buddhist flags reflect the people’s inclination towards Buddhist religion. Another interesting place we visit in this trek is Muktinath (God of Salvation), one of the religious places in Nepal. The 108 water sprouts and abundant fossils found in this area make it very special for the tourists and religious people.

Apart from these places we visit in this circuit trek, the striking natural beauty with a magnificent close-up view of the mountain, the ever-expanding vast landscapes, valleys, gorges, waterfalls, passes and hot water springs make this trek the famous and interesting to try for.
