The full Annapurna Circuit is rightly considered one of the World’s greatest treks and even in Nepal it stands out for the incredible variety of scenery it offers. Starting in sub-tropical meadows near Besi Sahar it rises through ever more impressive alpine peaks before reaching the famous Thorung La pass. From there the descent into the Mustang region takes you through an arid semi-desert before you finally arrive in Jomsom for a spectacular mountain flight back to Pokhara.
One of the best shorter treks we operate, this trail starts by taking in one of the best view points in the Himalaya, Poon Hill above Ghorepani. From here the dawn view across the Annapurnas is breathtaking.
From there the trek takes you into the heart of the Annapurna range with huge mountains towering above you on all sides forming the amphitheatre of the Sanctuary.
The Annapurna Panorama is the perfect choice if you are a novice trekker or if you are really short on time. After a short flight into Pokhara you trek up to Ghorepani and from there onto the view point at Poon Hill from where there are breathtaking views of Dhaulagiri, Annapurnas and Machhapuchchre (Fishtail). You return to Pokhara by a circular route avoiding the need to backtrack.
