The journey starts from the warm framing areas of Lamjung district. Then, we head towards the higher, cooler areas of Manang.
There, we can witness dramatic changes and biodiversity within a short period. This includes the changes in scenic landscapes, vegetation, temperatures, and local cultures. We can enjoy the daily walks in the morning and witness the beautiful snow-capped peaks in the background.
Our trek continues following the raging Marsyangdi River upstream to its source at Manang Valley. This valley is surrounded by the massif Annapurna and Chuli range, which feeds the Marsyangdi river with its ice-falls and glaciers.
After a few days of walking, we enter Pisang, going past the lovely villages of Dharapani, Timang, and Chame town. There, we face the imposing views of the snow-capped mountain range of Pisang Peak and Chulus. Then, we spend an extra day at Manang for acclimatization and explore its scenic viewpoints along with the village, adorned with impressive cultures.
We then head to the end of Manang Valley to reach the top of Thorong-La Pass. At this point, we can enjoy the breathtaking view surrounded by the stunning views of the snow peaks. Then, we head downhill to Mustang and other areas of the journey.
Our walk continues through the charming villages of Marpha and Tukuche, passing through Jomsom town. Then, we head towards the low areas of Tatopani, a village with natural hot springs, to enjoy the refreshing warm pools.
From Tatopani, our journey continues with a climb back to cooler hills filled with dense forests of rhododendrons and pines. Then, we reach the popular village of Ghorepani, from where we hike towards the Poon Hill. Poon Hill offers stunning sunrise views along with an array of peaks, such as Mount Dhaulagiri, Annapurna, and Manaslu.
Our trek slowly comes to an end as we follow the downhill path to Ulleri village. Then, we take a short but exciting ride to Pokhara, a renowned tourist destination blessed with serene lakes and marvelous mountains. This is a great place to conclude our adventure after an unforgettable experience on Annapurna Circuit Trekking.
