The trek begins from Besisahar. From Besisahar, we make our way into the Manang region and explore the villages of Koto, Meta, Phu, Nar, and Ngawal. Along the trek, you can get a majestic view of the Annapurna and Dhaulagiri ranges, including the Tilicho peak (7134m), Himlung Himal (7126m), and Gangapurna (7455m). Observe the Buddhist Chortens (temples), prayer flags, and famous monasteries such as Tashi Lakhang Gompa in the stunning Phu Valley.
After exploring the Manang region, you enter the Annapurna region via the famous Thorang La Pass (5416m). You will visit the historical temple of Muktinath, which is sacred for both Hindus and Buddhists across the globe. You can explore flora and fauna of the Annapurna Conservation Area as you pass through the thick forests of rhododendrons and wild oaks.
At the end of this trek, you will also get to explore the beautiful city of Pokhara. Boating in the Phewa Lake, cycling to Pame, paragliding, and visiting the famous heritage sites such as World Peace Stupa, Begnas Lake, and Sarangkot are the activities you can indulge in.
The best season for this trek is during autumn (September-November) and spring (March-May). This is because temperatures during these seasons are mild, with fewer chances of unpredictable weather.
