Once the trade route, and prohibited to foreigners was opened since 1977 to see the thousands of trekkers trailing on this solitude but soul-inspiring circuit. The Annapurna circuit trek measures the distance of 160 to 230 kilometers. The length of the route depends on the use of vehicles and how many places are visited during the trek.

The trek offers the variation of the altitude from 800 meters to the 5416 meters when you ascend the Thorung La Pass. Annapurna Circuit trek takes you to the different districts and circles around the Annapurna Mountain Range. During your trek you would enjoy the glittering gigantic mountains such as Dhaulagiri, Annapurna I-IV, Manaslu, Tilicho Peak and Gangapurna.

Among the ten tallest mountains in the world, Annapurna Base Camp Trek offers you the charismatic panorama of three mountains. Moreover, the Annapurna Circuit Trek also magnifies your astonishment with the glance of the deepest gorge in the world called Kali Gandaki gorge where the trek ends.

Paving on the edges of the paddy fields you would continue your trek upwards trailing through the stone steps and cold climate higher altitude. In the quest of viewing the tantalizing snow-capped mountains you would pace your feet on the shadowy and narrow path where you would never see any scene of snowy mountains. But don’t worry, the perseverance pays you off.

Annapurna Circuit trekking is an amazing trekking experience. A special feature here is the Tibetan tradition and culture in Manang and Mustang villages, where you can see Nepalese Buddhists. Also, you can see the culture of the hill Hindus in the foothills of the lowland Terai and Midland hills.

Annapurna Circuit Trekking takes you to visit Muktinath, a mutual Buddhist and Hindu temple at an altitude of 3,800 meters.

Due to its ancient connection and relationship with Tibet, it has full cultural influence over Tibet. To enhance your understanding of Tibetan culture, you must visit Kagbeni when you are near it.
