Annapurna Circuit Trek is one of the most popular treks in the world. It takes us around the entire Annapurna massif up to the highest point at Thorong La Pass (5.416 m). The trail leads us through the world’s deepest Kali Gandaki Canyon with Annapurna 1 (8.091 m) to the east and Dhaulagiri (8.167 m) to the west. We witness a magical sunrise at Poon Hill (3.200 m) with the whole Annapurna Range in front of us. During the trek we pass through diverse geographical and cultural regions with amazing fauna and flora in between. In the lower parts of Annapurna Conservation Area we walk through rice fields, beautiful little villages and amazing rhododendron forests.
