About this trip

This "classic" journey around the massif of the Annapurna Himal starts with a drive to Beshishahar - in the lowland paddy fields steadily gaining altitude leading up the Marsyangdi River Valley passing through oak and pine forests and eventually emerging into high desert country at Manang (3597 m.) through the villages of Chamje, Bagarchap Pisang to cross the Thorung La Pass (5416 m). The descent is equally amazing and varied. The trail then switches over to the Kali Gandaki River valley and descends through the villages of Muktinath, Jomsom and Ghorapani to terminate in Pokhara giving you enough time to observe the people and their customs. Lowland, farming communities of Brahmin and Chettri people of Aryan stock give way, slowly, to the highland trading communities of Magar, Gurung and Bhotia people of Mongoloid stock. As the people change, so does the dominant religion. Close up views of the Annapurna range, varied ecosystems, diverse cultures and an ever-changing landscape - lush, green paddy fields and oak forests, arid deserts and the deepest gorge in the world make this one of the most popular treks in the world.
