  • Duration - 15 days

  • Grade - Moderate

  • Max Altitude - 5416 m / 17,770 ft

Annapurna Circuit Trek is a world-class trekking route with the ancient valley of Manang, one of Nepal’s picturesque and adventurous trekking routes. The route runs behind the ring of majestic high peaks, including Hiun Chuli, Annapurna South, Annapurna l, Ganggapurna, Annapurna III and Machhapuchhre. The trail to this remarkable scene ascends the Annapurna foothills through forested hillsides, where you will get a taste of Nepal’s enchanting and grand vistas with a spectacular sunrise over the mountains. You will cross the high pass called the Thorong La (5416m) and then descend to Muktinath temple. Trek down to Muktinath with the setting of Hindu pilgrimage temple and Buddhist Monasteries. Muktinath is the famous and significant pilgrimage place for both Hindu and Buddhist and contains a wall of 108 waterspouts in the shape of a cow’s head pouring sacred water, the Jwala Mai temple with a perpetual spouting flame, and the pagoda-style Vishnu Mandir, all of which make up the auspicious combination of earth, fire, and water. The route goes further to Kagbeni from where the hidden kingdom of Mustang trekking starts.
