Annapurna circuit trek 10 days start from Beshisahar with four-wheel drive to Chame 2600m which takes about 6hrs. Chame is the headquarter of this mountainous district Manang which is really beautiful full of alpine tree surrounding and towering Annapurna II just above towards south-west and the steep cliff is at northern side. We sleep overnight there as our first night in the mountain. The next day we head towards Pisang 3200m via beautiful village Bartang and Dhikurpokhari. We visit monastery and village in Pisang which is very surreal. Next day journey goes to Nawal via beautiful village Ghyaru which is famous for its uniquely designed houses in local style. We stay in Nawal 3600m which is located high above the valley so we can see the birds-eye view of valley and mountain. Next day our journey leads towards Manang 3560m which is one of the biggest villages of the region famous for unique settlement, sacred monastery, and Gangapurna Lake. The other day we go for the acclimatization hike to Praken Gomba 4000m or to the Ice lake 4500m both are really beautiful which takes about several hours. Next day we head towards Letdar which takes about 5hrs and its 4000m above sea level so walking would be a bit difficult with growing altitude. In this altitude, we don’t have big trees so here the land is mostly covered by bushy throne and juniper. Next day journey goes to Thoroung Phedi passing through the narrow valley crossing the suspension bridge. After reaching the Thoroung Phedi we hike few hundred meters higher for acclimatization. Next day we head to Muktinath crossing Thoroung-La 5416m pass which is one of the biggest challenges of this journey. After reaching Muktinath we go to visit holy Muktinath temple which is one of the Hindus and Buddhist holiest temple. Our journey goes to the medieval town Kagbeni next day which is located at the bank of Holy River Kaligandaki at the foothill. Next day we trek to Marpha village which is famous for its uniqueness and apple orchard which is the last day of the hike. Next day we take a bus to go back to Pokhara.
