One of the top ten treks in the world, Annapurna Circuit Trek is well known by everyone all over the world.  The scenery is stunning, the mountains are magnificent and the hardworking decent people you will meet along the way will stay in your hearts and memories forever.   This is a challenging adventure you will never forget and can relive with all your family and friends for many years to come. About 4-5 hours drive from Pokhara and 6-7 hours from Kathmandu, you will be on the first step to meet with these beautiful, snow- capped peaks.

While doing this trek , you pass through sub-tropical forests , tropical forests, alpine forests and  ultimately find yourself in a stunning, barren landscape which looks like Tibet. Enjoy not only the forests , but as you gain altitude , you get the opportunity to experience the contrasting changes in climate.  Nature lovers will revel in the beauty of this trek, this country, this planet. Due to the high altitude pass the best time for this trek is October to November and April to May. This trek is considered to be quite strenuous. However, if you allow yourself enough time the circuit is suitable for the moderately fit.

From Chame , a steep and narrow path through a very dense forest will bring us to the dramatic curved rock face, rising 1500m from the river. This is probably the steepest part of the Marshyangdi Valley – so steep that the trail is carved into the vertical rock. After passing this last bit of rock, the valley opens up with majestic vistas. And right where the valley widens stands the Paungda Danda, a massive sloping rock face that rises over 5,000ft  above the trail. We continue walking  for a while before reaching Lower Pisang where we spend the night.

This trail guarantees excellent views of the beautiful landscape and the mighty mountains including Annapurna and Pisang.  We begin to notice a contrast in the landscape and vegetation from today. The cold and dry climate also creates a much harsher environment. A visit to Barga monastery , the largest monastery in the entire district of Manang will be memorable. Overnight at Manang.
