One of the most stunning trekking in the Annapurna region is the Round Annapurna Trek. It leads you to the highest point of the Himalayan pass, known as the Thorong pass. It is a different perspective of making an excursion and getting the pleasing Himalayan scenarios. The trek goes through the Annapurna conservation area which spreads from the sub-tropical zone and to the alpine region.
Beginning from Chamje after a tiresome drive from Kathmandu, you walk along the Marshyangdi River valleys and finally reach the astonishing Manang village. The road extension has shortened the trekking itinerary. It is a place of spiritual prosperity. Walking below the Annapurna massifs surpass your imagination and brings smile on your enthusiastic face. The challenging section begins from here and you have to deal rocky trail in the alpine section. Spare days are so helpful for acclimatization and explore the Tibetan style heritages. Crossing the Thorong pass (5416m), you get the panoramas of Annapurna, Dhaulagiri, Manaslu and the vicinity. Muktinath temple is another spiritual destination which is on the descending route from Muktinath temple. The trek concludes in Nayapul as it goes through the rhododendron forest via Poon Hill.
The lodge based Round Annapurna Trek offers the lifelong memories in three week long itineraries covering the Marshyangdi valleys and the Kali Gandaki valleys. For more details, feel free to contact Exciting Nepal Treks and Expedition.
