Annapurna Circuit Trek with Tilicho Lake

The route for Annapurna Circuit Trek was just opened in 1977. It is also known as a classic Himalayan trek. Annapurna circuit 16 days trek provides an amazing vista of Annapurna (8,097), Dhaulagiri (8,167m), Lamjung, Manaslu, Machhapuchhre (6,993m), Tukuche peak etc. You will enjoy the ranges of views during the trek as it starts and finishes in the lush foothills of the Annapurna, scattered with different settlements. We will feel the spectacular change as we go into the barren scenery of the Tibetan highland where the way of life becomes mostly Buddhist.

Annapurna circuit trekking is one of the top ten trekking destinations in the world. It is famous for its varied trekking routes which can range around 300 km long and attain an altitude of 5416m, crossing the highest pass in the Annapurna region. The Annapurna Circuit Trek has become popular with trekkers for the surrounding natural beauty of towering majestic mountains, cascading waterfalls, huge cliffs and picturesque villages where the culture of the region can be appreciated.


The trek starts at Beshisahar in the Marshyangdi River Valley and ends in the Kali Gandaki, the world’s deepest gorge which is made even more impressive by the incredible massive height of two mountains, Dhaulagiri at 8167 mand Annapurna 1 at 8091 m as well as world’s highest lake TILICHO which is 4916m . After crossing the highest pass at 5416 m., the trail opens up into the unbelievably beautiful Mustang Valley which is only surpassed by the magnificent Himalayan Mountain Range overlooking this valley. The trekking trail is regularly used by the local traders, so trekkers will encounter strings of pack ponies with tinkling bells, herds of goats and buffalo along with many of the local people. This experience is all a part of learning about the native culture and meeting the friendly people along the way. The complete adventure is so thrilling that trekkers will never forget these memories throughout their life.
