Only a few places in the world offer a variety of superb natural beauty as the Annapurna Region. This magnificent trek, Annapurna circuit trek takes you through distinct scenery of rivers, flora, fauna and above all-majestic mountains. Annapurna Circuit trek goes counter-clockwise and reaches its summit in Thorung La (pass) at the height of 5,416m, or 17,769 feet. On this route, you’ll pass mountains like Manaslu (an 8,000-plus meter peak), Langtang Himal, Annapurna II and IV, Annapurna III and Gangapurna, and, of course, Annapurna I and Dhaulagiri -- passing through rivers with the world's deepest gorge in between those two 8,000-plus meter peaks. Poon Hill, at the end of the Annapurna Circuit trek, affords views of those two mountains, as well as South Annapurna and Macchupucchre, the "Fishtail Mountain.". Annapurna Circuit trek also goes through Buddhist villages where you can see friendly locals from different ethnic groups and Hindu holy sites, most notably the village of Muktinath, a holy site for both Buddhists and Hindus. A Quaint, Timeless PlaceSetting foot on the Annapurna trail is like stepping back in time. The trappings and distractions of modern society vanish. Life goes on in the mountain villages much as it must have a century ago. Gone are the sounds of cars, motorcycles, or machines of any sort. Here the sounds of rivers and waterfalls, of women tending gardens, children walking to and from school, men porting goods or playing cards is common. Local products are made by hand; buildings are erected without the aid of machines. Because everything has to be carried up the mountains on the backs of porters, luxury items such as sweets and beer are a bit scarce.
