Trip Overview

Trip Overview

The trekking route of the Annapurna Circuit trek looks like never ending stairs, and when we lift our eyes, we see a blanket of the bluest sky. The upward trekking trail overlooks us and seems to check our trekking determination. On the way, we come across the world’s deepest gorge and a challenging pass called Thorong La.

When we see the tall and beautiful mountains, we immediately feel we are at the beginning of natural scenery that the mother earth had, and when we see the lake and hillside villages, we feel people know there how to live in an isolated part. When the sun gives a glorious greeting to mountains, we become jealous of the Annapurna Region. Please contact us for the final trip quotation.
