Annapurna Circuit Trek, passing via world’s widest passes Thorong La Pass, probably one of the highest passes with elevation of 5416 m from sea level. Annapurna Circuit perfect blend of culture and adventure used to last for 22 days but however with possibilities of motor road from both side of Thorong La Pass now day it can be accomplished with two weeks. Annapurna Round Trek starting from Beshisahar will end on next side of ridge near Mustang Jomsom Trek. Major highlights of Annapurna Circuit are Manang, Gangapurna Lake, and options of side trip to Ice Lake as well as Tilicho Lake, Thorong La Pass, Muktinath Temple, Kagbeni, which is considered as gateway to Upper Mustang and if further continues trek down from Jomsom instead of getting a ride then village of Marpha, Lete, Kalopani offer exceptional view of traditional housing and ranges of Nilgiri, Tukuche and Dhaulagiri. Apart from that another highlight of trip is at the ending days of Annapurna Circuit Trek is Rupse Waterfall, natural hot spring in Tatopani and world’s deepest gorge with two eight thousand meter high mountain on both side i.e. Mt. Annapurna on left side and Mt. Dhaulagiri on right side on the way down from Jomsom to Pokhara. Once one manage to reach Tatopani there are multiple option either straight retrace back to Kathmandu passing via Pokhara or hike to Poonhill and descend the Poon Hill Trek trail all the way down to Naya Pool and drive back to Pokhara. On our Annapurna Circuit Trek Itinerary we will create enough room for acclimatization on the way up to Thorong La Pass and once we descend to Jomsom then drive back to Pokhara passing via Marpha and taking a lunch in Tatopani by soaking in natural hot waterpond.
