Annapurna-thorong-La Trek


The Annapurna Circuit is the popular name for a 300 kilometer trek in Nepal around the Annapurna mountain range in the Himalayas. The trek reaches an altitude of 5,416 meters on the Thorung La pass, touching the edge of the fabled Tibetan plateau. The magnificent mountain scenery, seen at close quarters includes Annapurna 8,091 meters which was the first 8,000 meters peak to be climbed, the magnificent ice pyramid Dhaulagiri 8,167 meters, once the home of the legendary Buddhist guru Padmasamba, and Machhupuchhare 6,993 meters, considered by many to be the most beautiful mountain in the world.

The trek follows ancient paths used as trade routes between Nepal and Tibet. These paths have long facilitated the flow of cultures and religions in this remote and formerly inaccessible region. Today Tibetan Mahayana Buddhism, Hinduism and the mysterious Bon-Po religion still coexist and interpenetrate one another in this region which contains many pilgrimage sites.
