Annapurna Circuit Short
18Days / 13 Days in Trekking

Annapurna Cirsuit short is one of Nepal’s most renowned treks. The 18- days route climbs along the Marsyangdi gorge through the remote valley of Manang to crest the arid, windswept northern flank Annapurna at the Thorung La, a high but straightforward pass at 5425 meters. The route then joins the ancient trading link beside the Kali Gandaki River. The location of the Kali Gandaki gorge between Tibet and India made it one of the most important passage ways through the Himalaya for thousands of years. From its origin, as a tiny spring in Mustang, the river flows south to India carving its way between the two towering massifs of Dhaulagiri(8172 m) and Annapurna (8091m). These two giants are only 35 km apart, turning the plunge to the Kali Gandaki at Tatopani from their summits into a staggering 6660 m gorge- the deepest on Earth. This magnificent circuit route draws to a close through the Gurung villages and Rhododendron Forests of midland Nepal.
