If you want to see virtually all types of landscape in Nepal during one long walk, there is no other choice but to walk a nice trek around the ridge of Annapurnas. Picturesque canyon of river Marsyangdi with many waterfalls, amazing terraced systems of rice fields, glaciated giants of three eight thousand high massifs, almost moonscape of Tibet, the deepest valley in the world Kali Gandaki, rhododendron misty forests, typical villages – all this can be seen here. In addition, in the high season is very stable weather. What else to wish then to walk in beautiful landscape with the sun over your head.  

1 to 4 day

Start of Around Annapurnas trek

The first three to four days hike around Annapurnas are just a „warm-up“. Awaits first long, tiring, but at the same time interesting ride after Prithvi highway and then you will hike from Besi Shahar between rice terraces along canyon Marsyangdi until Dharapani lying in Manang area.

Manang Trek

More than weekly hike through Manang is the main attraction of the entire trek around Annapurna. There is also the best choice for side trips. There are also two trekking mountain  – Pisang Peak and Chulu. However, they are only for experienced and well acclimatized terkkers. There are two variants to cross into the Lower Mustang - classic over Thorong la pass and along the lake Tilicho through Mezokanto la pass.

14 to 18 day

Through the landscape of Lower Mustang

After crossing the Thorong la pass awaits you the last part of the trek around Annapurnasa along the route of so-called Jomsom trek. Trail  leads all the time down through the valley of Kali Gandaki to Tatopani, where you can end the walk or continue to Poon Hil (the original end of the trek is in Beni). Many trekkers skipped this part of the trek these days, thanks to a dirt road along which now leads most of the trek, and flies from Jomsom or take the bus back to Pokhara. But it is a shame, because it offers a number of wonderful views of massif of Nilgri and especially of monumental Dhaulagiri. In addition, traffic is not very dense.
