Annapurna Circuit Trekking is the most popular trekking destination in Nepal Himalaya. Nowadays route of the Annapurna circuit modifies to meet the time period of tourists. On the first day of the trek, we drive from Kathmandu to Koto, the starting point of the trek. It takes about 9 to 10 hours by Bus or other private transportation.
Annapurna Circuit trekking is generally called the Marsyangdi trail. And it goes upstream along the Marsyangdi River. Firstly you will trek through canyons and gorges and move to the north side of the Annapurna Himalayas. Here you will pass Manang village which was once a kingdom.

When we get to Manang, we stay here for a day to reconfigure to the high altitude. Because we are going to cross Throngla Pass, which is 5416m above sea level and is one of the world’s highest passes. Then we cross the Throng pass, which is the Annapurna Himalaya’s northernmost pass. Then we go down to Muktinath, which in Hindu and Buddhist mythology is one of the holiest places in Nepal. So, Jomsom is the last place we’ll go on our trek. We take a direct flight back to Pokhara from Jomsom. A moderate trek that gives you a glimpse of the beautiful mountain village of Manang and the mountain behind it. From Throng Pedi, you can see a wide area.
