The Annapurna Circuit is a popular name for a 300 km trek within the Annapurna mountain range. The trek rises to an altitude of 5,300m on the Thorung La pass, touching the edge of the fabled Tibetan plateau.

This trek is a magnificent plan, covering two different river valleys. It encircles the Annapurna Massif, crossing Thorung La [5416m], the highest pass on this trek.
The magnificent mountain scenery, seen at close quarters includes Annapurna, Dhaulagiri, Machhapuchhre, Manaslu, Gangapurna [7455m] and Tilicho Peak [7134m]. Ten peaks of 6000-8000m rises from the Annapurna .

Machhapuchhre looks stunning from this viewpoint as also the south face of Annapurna .
The trek begins at Besi Sahar and concludes at Kali Gandaki river valley. After a seven hours drive from Kathmandu , you reach Besi Sahar in the Marshyangdi river valley. The trek finally concludes at Kali Gandaki river valley. En route, you pass along paddy fields and subtropical forests, view the beautiful mountain scenery, several waterfalls and gigantic cliffs, and experience fascinating village life. The entire trip is so exhilarating that you will be kept enthralled, day after day. This is a trek you will remember for a very long time.
