From Kathmandu we travel to the road-head at Besishahar and then start the Annapurna Circuit trekking. The trek follows the Marsyangdi River through rice paddies, terraced fields and Hindu villages under the shadow of the Annapurna and Manaslu ranges. As we ascend, the valley becomes narrower, waterfalls plummet from high above, and the scenery gains a rugged alpine appearance. The trail soon bears west behind the Annapurnas, to enter a Trans-Himalayan region populated by people of Tibetan origin, whose prayer flags, mani walls and monasteries are constant reminders of their Buddhist culture. From Manang we undertake the challenging crossing of the Thorong La (5416m) this is the heart of the Annapurna Circuit trek and links the Marsyangdi and Kali Gandaki Valleys.

We then pass through the world's deepest gorge cutting between the peaks of Annapurna and Dhaulagiri and on to the hot springs at sub-tropical Tatopani. The final climb of the trek takes us to Ghorepani, where we enjoy more magnificent views of the Annapurnas. The Annapurna Circuit then descends to the road head, where our transport awaits to take us to the beautiful Pokhara to complete this memorable trek and drive Tourist bus / Car or Flight to Kathmandu.
