Description

On this 11 day hiking adventure, you will have the chance to explore the Annapurna massif, deep in the Himalayas of Nepal.

There are many different routes you can take when exploring the Annapurna area. And the route we will take is definitely one of the most famous. It is also not too challenging, as there are only a few days consisting of more than 4 hours of hiking. As a result this trip is quite accessible

After seeing the cities of Kathmandu and Pokhara, we will we will be visiting several villages, one of the most incredible being Muktanith. This place is a sacred pilgrimage sight not only for Buddhists, but Hindus as well. You will get to spend a day and a half in Muktanith, and it is definitely worth it. The Muktanith temple is a beautiful sight. And located behind it are 108 frigid water spouts, which are believed to be capable of rinsing people of their sins!

Another amazing part of this trip is that you will be able to see the gorgeous landscape of the restricted, isolated region of Upper Mustang from Kagbeni, which is a junction on the Trans-Himalayan trade route. 

You will also have the chance to see the deepest gorge in the world, Kali Gandaki, which rests between 2 incredible peaks, Annapurna 1 (8,091m) and Dhawalagiri (8,167m).

Finally, and definitely not to be outdone, is that throughout this hike, you will get to behold a variety of incredible Himalayan peaks.

There is just so much to see in the Annapurna that it is one of those places you have to see to believe. And on this 11 day trek, we believe you will see so much that you will have enough memories to last a lifetime. So send us a request, and experience the Annapurna of Nepal.
