About Annapurna Circuit Trek

Also called the Around Annapurna Trek, it comprises a visit to the biggest pass in the country, the holy shrine on the foothill of the mountains, and the deepest river gorge in the world just to offer a mere glimpse of the entire journey.

From here, you cross the highest pass of Thorung La (5416m). The trail opens to a desert-like landscape of Mustang Valley.
