Sights and Activities

Annapurna Circuit

The Annapurna Circuit is is a beautiful trek that passes through four regions: Lamjung, Manang, Mustang and Myagdi. The trek is arguably the best in Nepal for scenery and cultural diversity and is classed by many as one of the best treks in the world!

Lamjung and Myagdi are of lower elevation than Manang and Mustang. The lower elevation areas are predominantly Hindu and with lush green subtropical valleys with villages and terraced farming. The higher up you go, through Manang and Mustangher, this a largely a Tibetan Buddhist area.

The trek goes counter-clockwise from Besisahar to Nayapul and reaches its summit in Thorung La at a maximum height of the height of 5,416 metres. The route takes you past Manaslu an 8,000 metres plus mountain, Langtang Himal, Annapurna II, III and IV and Gangapurna. You will also pass through the world's deepest gorge in between another two 8,000 metres plus peaks.

Poon Hill, at the end of the trek, affords stunning views of the mountains, as well as South Annapurna and Macchupucchre, the 'Fishtail Mountain'.

Not for the faint-hearted this is a 17-21 day trek which is best undertaken between October and November, although these can be very busy times, however December through to February are also good months.
