A trekking route will often pass through forests of rhododendron, bamboo, oak, and hemlock, visiting one or two villages each day. Rivers are crossed on log passages or suspension bridges. It's not unusual to cross snowfields in the morning and bathe in sub-tropical streams in the afternoon. For the most part, trekking routes are well traveled by local people, but remain unmarked without sign posts. The objective of trekking is not just the particular destination, but the journey itself. You travel at a modest pace, observing nature, rural communities, and spectacular mountain panoramas. It is by far the most popular and requires a minimum of about three weeks to go around the Annapurna massif. What makes this trek so special is that you can look up to something new in scenery everyday. The Annapurna Conservation Area begins at 820 m and reaches a high of 8,091 m, the summit of Mount Annapurna I, the world’s 10th tallest peak. The area encompasses forested middle mountain, high Himalaya and trans-Himalayan desert plateau similar to the landscape in Tibet as you move north
The trek goes counter-clockwise from Besi Sahar, of the Pokhara-Kathmandu Highway, to Naya Pool, and reaches its high point at Thorong La, pass at 5,416 m. On the way, you pass through stunning mountain scenery – Manaslu, Langtang Himal, Annapurna II and IV, Annapurna III, and, Annapurna I and Dhaulagiri. In between these two 8,000 m peaks lies the dramatic Kali Gandaki gorge – the deepest in the world.
Mustang offers an experience of trans-Himalayan landscape and exotic Himalayan cultural experience. Muktinath (3,749 m) is a popular destination for pilgrims and trekkers to the region. It is a site holy for both Buddhists and Hindus before. There is now a motorable road from Muktinath to Beni, from where you can catch a bus to Pokhara. Also, you can catch a bus from Besi Sahar to Sanghe at the start of the trek.
Lo-Manthang in Upper Mustang is an extremely exotic destination too. The last king of Mustang still has his home at this ancient capital township. Many tourists visit Lo-Manthang during Teeji festival that is usually scheduled in the month of May.
Being in the rain shadow area, Upper Mustang can be visited even during the rainy season. Upper Mustang falls in protected areas and one need special permit to visit the region.
The trek in the eastern part follows the Marsyangdi River upstream till Manang 3400m high, which is a string of seven villages that form the upper arc of the Annapurna Circuit Trekking Trail. The area is composed of stark, rocky terrain, very similar to the Tibetan plateau, and is dotted with turquoise lakes, including Lake Tilicho (4919 m), the world’s highest lake.
Popularly known as “Around Annapurna’ trek this 20-days trek program takes you right round the great Annapurna massif visiting a Tibet-like country on the northern slopes of the Himalaya and then into the dramatic Kali Gandaki gorge - the deepest in the world.
The trek begins from Besishahar, which is about 6 hours drive by local bus from kathmandu. The trail leads northwest into Marsyangdi river valley following the river upstream into the beautiful Manang valley which is surrounded on all sides by major Himalayan peaks such as Annapurna II (7,937m), Annapurna III (7,555m), Annapurna IV (7,525m), Gangapurna (7,455m), Glacier Dome (7,193m) and Tilicho peak (7,134m). The people of Manang valley are similar to Tibetans in culture and in dress though their historic origins are unknown. They are known for their shrewd business instincts. The effect of the Himalayan rain shadow is very apparent as lush vegetation of the lower Marsyangdi valley gives way to fields of barley, buckwheat and potatoes in Manang. The trail leads higher to cross Thorung La (5,416m), the mountain pass that leads into a sharp descent to the spectacular Kali Gandaki gorge. Following the route along the banks of Kali Gandaki passes through spectacular landscape and contrasting villages of ethnic mixes, religions, climate; thus making the descent an interesting trekking course.
