Similarly, Annapurna Circuit has often been a vote as the best long-distance trek in the world. As it combines, in its old full form, a wide variety of climate zones from tropics at 600 m as to the Arctic at 5416 m asl. At the Thorong La pass. And cultural variety from Hindu villages at the low foothills to the Tibetan culture of Manang Valley and lower Mustang.
Continuing construction of a road has short the trail and change the villages. With the construction of the road, mountain biking is becoming popular, with Mustang, in particular, becoming one of the world’s most popular mountain biking destinations. The mountain scenery, seen at close quarters includes the Annapurna Massif.
It is also possible to continue from Ghorepani to Tadapani, Ghandruk, Landruk and then to Phedi. Which follows the old Annapurna Circuit from the time when the road is not yet the extent to Beni. This more faithful variation takes three days instead of the short exit from Ghorepani to Pokhara. A popular addition is a visit to Annapurna Base Camp, ABC. This trail turns to the north from Tadapani and rejoins the old AC at either Ghandruk or Landruk. A visit to the ABC adds about 5 days to the duration of the Annapurna Circuit, slightly less than the normal trek.
Annapurna Circuit trekking offers both low and high altitudes, on the way to the Thorung La (5416m) as well as during the descent from it. Starting from 790 meters, it gives us a chance to explore the Himalayas from bottom to top & from many different angles and perspectives.
