This is a characteristic trek of its own unique kind with amazing speckled scenery and cultural depth that stirs your imaginations to the bone. Taking trekkers down intense trails, higher and deeper into the Annapurna massif, the Annapurna Circuit is one of the world’s most sought after treks. Our venture begins from historical Kathmandu as we travel to the road-head at Besishahar and begin our hike by clinging to the Marshyangdi River through rice paddies, terraced fields and Hindu villages with cows decorated with sprinkled vermilion on the foreheads and lively women decked in red saris going about their daily chores on fertile fields all in the shadow of the wonderful Annapurna and Manaslu ranges.
Our superb Annapurna trekking holidays start in Beshishar. From Syange, our first five days take us through the terraced foothills of the Marshyangdi valley, to reach the village of Manang, a thriving little village town on this circuit. A great feature of all our trekking holidays, and this is no exception, is the variety of landscapes they encompass and our days crossing the high point of our trek, the Thorung La, 5,416m/17,765ft, are spent in bare, but dramatically beautiful high altitude terrain. As we ascend the higher areas, the valley becomes narrower; waterfalls plummet from high above, and the scenery changes from the fertile to the craggy alpine appearance. The trail then bears west behind the Annapurnas, to enter a Trans-Himalayan region populated by people of Tibetan origin whose prayer flags, mani walls and monasteries are constant reminders of a vibrant Buddhist culture of yore.
Trekking via Muktinath, Jomsom and the apple orchards of Marpha, we now enter the Kali Gandaki Gorge, the deepest in the world, before ending our trek in the foothills once more, with a pause en route to watch a majestic sunrise over the mountains from Poon Hill. This is one hell-of-a-sight to view at the break of dawn with the maroon pink & red rays of the sun cutting through the mountains that tells you of the love of God who created such incomprehensible natural beauty.
In recent years the development of a dirt road along the Kali Gandaki has gotten Annapurna hiking much negative back lashing from the press. We have therefore pioneered this route to avoid walking on the road, thereby retaining the allure and experience of trekking the classic Annapurna Circuit in its original form. On completing the round circuit, we further descend into the valley at Jomsom to the foot of the world's deepest gorge, cutting between the peaks of Annapurna and Dhaulagiri. From Jomsom, we hop a flight to Pokhara where we enjoy two nights close to the beautiful Phewa Lake. This is a trip that would truly be enjoyable if done with your loved ones, or your very close colleagues. Please note, our flight from Jomsom will be subject to clear weather where all flights generally take-off in the morning because in the afternoons the powerful winds that blow from the mountains are very dangerous for take-offs and landings.
