Annapurna Circle by trekking up to Jomsom and flying to Pokhara is one of the most popular classic treks in the world. Our 14-day journey begins in Kathmandu where we visit amazing World Heritage Sites scattered around the city. We begin the trek from Syange and enjoy the ever-changing landscape and culture of the Annapurna region. While circling the Annapurna massif we get to triumph over one of the world's highest pass -Thorong La (5,416m/17,769ft), enjoy the dry yet beautiful landscape of the Manang valley and tour Muktinath a place of high spirtitual importance for the Nepalese (both Hindus and Buddhists).

Spring (March to May) and Autumn (September to November) are the best months for this trip. Although this trip can be taken during winter, there might be a problem due to obstructed pass due to ice or snow. The trekking routes are crowded during Spring and Autumn but during Monsoon and Winter the routes are not packed and we could enjoy rather best of nature.
