Himalaya Caravan Adventure offers Annapurna Circuit trek the ultimate insight into the Himalaya, from its snow-capped peaks to its hardy inhabitants. Starts form Tropical land around 800mtr to slowly Alpine and Himalayan desert, Throng-La 5416mtr, to again arid land Mustang and slowly down to again tropical land. In this Annapurna circuit trek some point you will find such, from where you can see Desert, Mountain, River and Green field. The Annapurna Circuit is, quite simply, one of the most spectacular treks in the world. Starting just east of the town of Pokhara, looping from Besisahar to Naya Pul, the Annapurna Circuit is a hike through central Nepal’s towering Himalaya that will literally and figuratively take your breath away. It takes around 20 days to hike the entire 300km of the Annapurna Circuit. But the rewards are great. For a start, the scenery en route is constantly changing: from the lush-green rice paddies of the lower elevations, to the arid and lunar terrain further north, to the classic snow-capped peaks.
The Annapurna Circuit is also culturally fascinating. Although you’ll be passing through wild places, this is not a wilderness trek in the uninhabited sense. Miraculously many people survive in this hostile environment, and you’ll meet many different ethnic groups, as well as trekking past their precipitously perched monasteries and fluttering prayer flags. The Annapurna Circuit utilizes the simple guesthouses run by these remote communities, so you can be assured of a proper bed and warm cooked meal at the end of each day. Of course you don’t have to walk the whole Annapurna Circuit if you don’t have three weeks to spare: many trekkers walk half of it – generally Besisahar to Jomsom or Jomsom to Naya Pul, as Jomsom has an airport. Or there are other offshoot treks in the region, such as the Annapurna Sanctuary. But whichever way you do it, the experience won’t disappoint.
