Upper Mustang Round Trek

Trip Facts

Trip Introduction

The Annapurna trek is known as the most diverse trek of the world. The complete circuit of the Annapurna massive, an estimated 300km, begins from lush sub-tropical forests below 800m in altitude. The scenery changes everyday from rice paddies and pine forests to Tibet-like countryside on the northern slopes of the Himalayas in the district of Manang. Manang was only opened to trekkers in 1977, although a few mountaineering expeditions and scientific sorties/ parties? had visited this region in the 1950s.
Annapurna Circuit Trekking The ‘Circuit’ Trek After Manang, the terrain turns to high altitude ice desert over Thorung La Pass at 5416m, down to Muktinath, Jomsom reaching the forested areas below Tukuche. Highlights of the Annapurna Circuit trek include the Kali Gandaki River on the other side of the Thorung La Pass which is considered the deepest ravine in the world, five times deeper than the Grand Canyon. The Kali Gandaki River cuts deeply between Mt. Dhaulagiri (8167m) to the west and Mt Annapurna (8091m) to the east.
Continue down the Kali Gandaki gorge amidst some stunning views of mountains and diverse flora and fauna in the lower forests, passing through Ghorepani with a magnificent sunrise view from nearby Poon Hill. The Annapurna Circuit trek ends here and you can relax near the lake city of Pokhara.
