This is probably one of the world's most beautiful trek. It will take you through a wonderful variety of landscapes and culture, from the subtropical lower Marsyangdi Valley where Gurung and Thakali people dominate to the northern arid Buddhist areas.
Along the Marsyangdi River, on easy trail and suspension bridges, through rice terraces and forest, we will slowly gain altitude and acclimatize well. After Pisang we will get stunning up-close views of snowy and glaciated high peaks including Annapurna II, III and IV. This remote area lies in a rain shadow formed by the Annapurnas and the landscape supports little in the way of forest apart from pine, juniper and scrub rhododendron.
Huge glacial moraines abound, etched deeply by wind erosion into fantastic pillars. The Thorong La (5416 m) wilderness is one of the highlight of this trek. After the pass, we reach Muktinath and then Jomsom.
