Annapurna Circuit Trek

Annapurna Circuit Trek Widely acclaimed as one of the world’s most popular treks, the route begins with a road that extends through Beshisahato Chame is a versatile trip which serves the whole purpose of adventure-traveling, cultural tours and wanderlust; combining trekking, hiking, sightseeing and cultural tour into a single package. Much of the way to Khudi makes use of this road. The first part of the trek makes easy walking. The trek links the valley of the Marshyangdi river with that of the Kaligandaki making a long horse shoe loop of the Annapurna Himal.
