Description of Annapurna Circuit trekking holiday in Nepal

This Annapurna Circuit Trekking holiday in Nepal is an adventure of a lifetime where you complete one of the world’s most iconic hiking trails. Famous not only for the Annapurna Range, part of the Himalayas, but also for the diverse landscapes and ecosystems that you cover during the eighteen days that it takes to trek the circuit. From the sub tropical Marsyangdi Valley to the almost desert like conditions of the Tibetan Plateau, as well as alpine forests and meadows, the 125km trail is simply stupendous.

In addition, you will also be walking through sacred territory, with Buddhist monasteries, chortens, prayer flags and stonewalls along the way, as well as small Annapurna communities. Starting in Beshishar, you will be walking in an anticlockwise direction, which is slightly easier than the other way, mainly because the Thorong La pass is less challenging in this direction.

Trekking highlights along the way include Thorang La Pass, as mentioned above, which is at an elevation of 5416m, as well as nearby Muktinath Temple, a sacred place of pilgrimage for Hindus and Buddhists. You will get views of some of the greats including Annapurna I, II and III, Machhapuchchhre and Dhaulagiri. But you will also gain insight into remote Nepalese life, visiting local communities of Manang, Lamjung and Marfa to name but a few. Visiting Pisang is also a memorable experience, where two villages make one at the base of Annapurna II and IV.

All in all, undertaking and completing the Annapurna Circuit is a dream come true for keen trekkers, gaining memories of a lifetime, with Himalayan views imprinted on their minds forever, and memories of a cultural experience that is both humbling and inspiring.

Responsible tourism

Responsible tourism: Annapurna Circuit trekking holiday in Nepal

Environment

Conservation of wildlife of this region has been our top priority. We strictly stick to the concept that every single creature of the planet has some role to play in the ecosystem and that they are the integral parts of the food chain. We try and encourage our clients to use bio-degradable stuffs wherever and whenever possible. We even try to bring back as much garbage as we can. Our clients travel by foot as much as they can. Most of our holidays are done by foot. We use mules, donkeys and horses to carry loads instead of the vehicles that emit carbon monoxide. Nepal is known for its abundance in water resources. So, conservation of water tops the must-do list at all times. Culturally, in Nepal sources of water are attributed to deities and divinities. So, without a doubt, we take utmost care that we do not step over the line with their cultural sentiments and we encourage our clients to do the same. Waste of water is a big “NO” during our expeditions.

Community

We recommend our clients local products. We believe this helps the local community in multiple ways. This increases the income of the local people. It promotes the local skills, culture and lifestyle. Similarly, it helps run the local business without a hitch. We allocate certain part of our income for the welfare of the local communities. We hire the local people when their skills and knowledge can be of some assistance to us. Most of the porters, guides and even drivers, if needed, are hired from the local places. We make sure we choose those places as our stopovers during the trip which serve local food, tea, beverages and so forth.
Once we are back from our trip we strongly urge our clients they recommend the local specialties to their friends and families. Be it local agro-products or handicrafts we hand over them to our guests as token of love. It serves more than one benefit. It keeps our guests coming back to us and it promotes the local skills worldwide. Moreover, we assist local schools and charitable trusts in raising awareness in the issues like global warming, need of education, sanitation, gender equality and so on.
