Annapurna Circuit Trek takes you to the Tibet-like country on the northern slopes of the Himalaya and the dramatic Kali Gandaki Gorge. This trek starts with a drive of about 8 hrs to a bustling little boomlet town Besisahar (823m). After an overnight in Besisahar the trail starts through typical hill country inhabited by Gurungs and Chhetris. It slowly passes through wonderful rice paddy fields and into cooler zones, changing from pine forest to open meadows, and finally into dry rainshadow area of Manang. Mountain views from here are just superb and the greatest acheivement comes when crossing a high pass Thorung La (5416m) from where you will be able to see fantastic views of the mountains all around. You also will be visiting Muktinath the important pilgrimage site for both Hindus and Buddhists. We can describe this trail as a classical one as it provides everything which Annapurna has to offer, various culture, different tribes residing in this area, fantastic landscape, great mountain views and of course crossing an exciting 5416m Thorung La Pass.
