Annapurna round trek – Himalaya Trip

The 10-Day Annapurna Round Trek or Annapurna Circuit Trek starts from Chame after a drive from Kathmandu to Besishahar and Chame. The trek goes along the Marshyangdi River, with a great view of Manaslu (8163m.) and Peak 29 to the east. Starting from less altitude, it gives us a chance to explore the Himalayas from bottom to top and from many different angles and perspectives and it supports to acclimatize your body. We walked through rice farms, forests, and friendly villages belonging to the lower realms of the Annapurna Conservation Area.
Reaching Pisang village, we have a choice of trails north or south of the Marsyangdi River which meet up again at Mungji. The southern route by Humde, with its airstrip, at 3325m involves less climbing than the northern route via Ghyaru, Ngawal though there are better views on the trail that follows the northern bank of the river. As it continues to the main Himalayan range onto the high and dry Tibetan Plateau, the scenery is equally breathtaking.
The village of Manang (3,500m/11483 feet) marks the beginning of the next stage, where a day will be spent acclimatizing to the higher altitude. Several excursions in the area can help the acclimatization process by visiting various monasteries or viewing, Gangapurna Lake, Ice Lake, Khangsar village, and Milerepa Cave.
The highest point of the trek is Thorong La Pass (5416m / 17768 feet). After climbing up, the pass is marked by the Mani stone and prayer flags. As you reach the top, you are rewarded by the magnificent view from the top and then we walk down to Muktinath with amazing mountains. The sacred Muktinath temple has 108 waterfalls that resemble water flowing from taps and mysterious natural gas fires that boggle the mind.
