"Thorung La Pass"

Annapurna- 15 days

A great mountain pass in the middle of the Himalayas.

The spectacular circular circuit that surrounds the great Annapurna mountain range.

We will cross the mythical pass Thorung La at 5,400m above sea level until we reach Muktinath. We will cross over impressive suspension bridges above waters that descend from the highest peaks on the planet. We will see passing yak caravans and we will visit ancestral towns, Buddhist temples and mystical places. Finally we will fly from Jomson to Pokhara, where we can canoe on its wonderful Pewa lake. Apart from the Annapurna mountain range we will also see other great giants such as the Dhaulagiri 8,167m, Manaslu 8,156m, Gangapurna 7,455m, Machapuchare

An overwhelming experience that enhances the spirit. 

This route is achievable for most people who like to walk in the mountains from time to time, since the entire ascent is very steady, but it may be that the accumulated effort and height make us feel tired. It is normal, we are in the middle of the Himalayas.

Possibility of chaining with the trek to the Annapurna Base Camp and the Mardi Himal trek.

Of course, we will visit Kathmandu and all its monuments declared as World Heritage Sites by UNESCO.

There is almost no risk of suffering from altitude sickness, since the ascent will be very progressive and with enough time to acclimatize. The days of trekking usually include about 5 hours of walking and generally about 10 to 15 km / day, although there are harder days than others.

The Annapurna area is close to Pokhara, the second largest city in Nepal. From this city we can already see the entire mountain range with mountains of more than 7,000m, and in the foreground, looming above Lake Pewa, the beautiful Machapuchare.
To the west of this mountain range, separated by the sacred river Kali Gandaki, we find the Dhaulagiri, and to the east we find Manaslu, both mountains with more than 8,000m. What more can you ask for?

In the high season this area is even more packed with trekkers than in Everest. This is due to its easy accessibility, as you get to the start of the road route (even walking from Pokhara if you have time). In addition, this area allows many variations, which makes it very suitable to adapt trips for each person’s taste and duration.

Another advantage is that the climb to the Thorung La Pass (5,416m) is very progressive and that helps prevent altitude sickness. This does not mean at all that it is simple. In all these high altitude treks you have to be quite physically fit or take it very calmly and follow the advice of your guide (in case you have decided to hire the services of one).

This route has a variety of landscapes. As you go up you go through green cultivated fields, rhododendron forests, snow on the upper part, arid landscape when you approach Tibet, Lake Tilicho (the highest in the world), even some areas with hot springs where you can bathe. Of course, unlike in the Everest area where you see large mountains soon after starting, here the mountain views are limited since the route runs along trails at the bottom of the valleys, which does not allow you to see many peaks with ease. At various points along the route, you can take small acclimatization excursions from where the peaks are best seen.
The best thing is to unite the Circular Circuit with the ascent to the Annapurna Base Camp, since that is where you will really have the best views of the mountain range. Spectacular!

As in the rest of the classic routes in Nepal, you will see that they are fully adapted for tourism, and every hour and a half you will cross a town where you can stop to eat, have tea or sleep. You do not need to carry food, or a tent or mats. This will allow you to enjoy the journey while at the same time helping the local economy.

An incredible route through spectacular surroundings.
