Annapurna Massif Teahouse Trek

Annapurna Massif Teahouse Trek

Breathtakingly beautiful One of the top ten treks in the world, doesn't disappoint! The Thorong La pass at 5,400 meters is among the most challenging and rewarding in Nepal. The two or three week trek encircling the Annapurna Range passes through country inhabited by a wide range of people and offers spectacular mountain scenery. Starting in the tropical Pokhara Valley, you climb from lush lowland forest to the arid valley of Manang. The high pass of Thorong La at 5,400m offers a breathtaking view of the entire mountain range. On either side of the pass are fascinating Tibetan villages built almost entirely of stone. The trail descends to the Buddhist and Hindu pilgrimage site at Muktinath joining up with the Jomsom trek. Due to the high altitude pass the best time for this trek is October to November and April to May. This trek is considered to be quite strenuous. However, if you allow yourself enough time the circuit is suitable for the moderately fit.
