During Trek: Local GuideHide Detail
The Annapurna Himal has long been the most popular region amongst trekkers, and for good reason. The mountain views are flawless, the variety of scenery is hard to match and the villages and monasteries you pass offer an exotic slice of Nepali, Tibetan and Trans-Himalayan culture. In addition, the Annapurna circuit has long been considered one of the world’s greatest treks. Like all great journeys, the trek reveals itself gradually, climbing through subtropical scenery to a Tibetan-influenced valley and then over the high Thorung La (pass) to the Kali Gandaki Valley, a desert-like Trans-Himalayan region that was once a vital trade corridor to Tibet. We then head back down the great Kali Gandaki Valley, said to be one of the deepest gorges on earth with Annapurna and Dhaulagiri towering some 7,000 meters above before returning to Pokhara where we complete our exhilarating trek.
