The most famous route of the world is Annapurna circuit . Throng la Pass is measured to be the most conventional trek in the region. The highlight of this trek is crossing over the 5,416m Thorong La Pass, which is as high as one can get in this region without climbing a mountain. Throng la pass adventure travelers as recently as 1977, when the Nepalese Government derestricted the Manang Valley. Providing a combination of spectacular high mountain scenery, picturesque lowland farms and villages, a wealth of cultural interest and a challenging pass crossing, our new mini-Annapurna Circuit trek is justifiably popular. From Kathmandu we travel to the road-head at Besishahar and trek following the Marsyangdi River through rice paddies, terraced fields and Hindu villages in the shadow of the Annapurna and Manaslu ranges. As we ascend, the valley becomes narrower, waterfalls plummet from high above, and the scenery gains a rugged alpine appearance. The trail then bears west behind the Annapurnas, to enter a Trans-Himalayan region populated by people of Tibetan origin whose prayer flags, many walls and monasteries are constant reminders of the thriving Buddhist culture.

There are dramatic views of Annapurna II, Annapurna III and Gangapurna as we make the gradual ascent to the village of Manang. We rest and acclimatise for a day here before undertaking the challenging crossing of the Thorong La (5416m) that links the Marsyangdi and Kali Gandaki Valleys. At the top of the pass we savor majestic mountain views before descending to the holy temples at Muktinath.
