This two weeks’ trek in the Annapurna region is specially designed considering those individuals who have only limited time in Nepal and are very interested to explore this area by crossing Thorong La Pass (5416m.).
Trekking in the Annapurna region is the best approach to have a close look at the formation of mysterious nature’s wonders which have facilitated this region to be highly concentrated trekking spot amongst the world since 1977 when it was first time opened for the foreigners. This region has been associated with the name of the massive Annapurna peak – one among the eight world’s highest peaks of the world. This highly praised and spectacular trekking route makes your travelling a different experience ever in a lifetime. More than anything else, a great deal of traditional culture and the unique hospitality of the native people can definitely help to erase your tired mind in course of your great journey. In this way, this short but exclusive trek program is basically targeted to enjoy the Himalayan spirit through the unique adventure as well as within a short period of time.

This magnificent trek leads you to the fine village inhabited by a wide diversity of people from different ethnic groups, offering a spectacular and majestic view of the white Himalayas. As it continues to the north of the main Himalayan range on to the high and dry Tibetan Plateau, the scenery is equally breathtaking.

Muktinath – the most sacred Hindu temple stands as the most remarkable feature of this trek offering the astonishing view of the snow-capped mountains from the top. The eye-appealing view of around surrounding is beyond one’s thought to enable you to enjoy the never-ending blissful experience in peace and tranquillity.

Jomsom at an altitude of 2713m is the ultimate destination of this trek where our hiking excursion gets an end. Night rest at this point is more praiseworthy in a sense that the countryside view settles down your all tiredness both mentally and physically. The next day, a 20 minutes’ scenic flight takes you another picturesque town – Pokhara which undoubtedly offers many things of tourists alike within a very limited area.

We would be pleased to have you along on this adventure and to introduce you to our country and way of life while you travel as part of my extended family

One path maintains the altitude, traversing the slopes towards a place where the valley is narrow; the other continues to ascend towards the line of the ridge. The former is the old path, and is much more difficult as it goes on really steep screed; the latter is the new path that goes a completely different way. Continue along the new path, reach a high crest, and descend on switchbacks carved out through the screed slopes to a side valley of the main valley. At its bottom is a brook.

It often causes terrible problems to cross the pass if it is covered by heavy snow. About four hours climb up to the pass marked by the chortens and prayer flags will reward you with stunning views from the top of the pass. Another four hours of walking will take you to the holy town of Muktinath.
