Thorung La Trek

Thurong La trek is a shorter version of the Annapurna Circuit trek on the north eastern slopes of the Annapurna region. Although Annapurna circuit was once the classic trek in the Annapurna region but due to recent ongoing road construction on the other part of Annapurna Circuit trail has made us redesign the program. In reality this shorter version of the Annapurna Circuit trek is the cream of the trek. The trail takes you through a typical hill country inhabited by Gurung, Chettris to Tibet like country on the northern slopes of the Himalaya. Crossing of Thurong La pass which is 5,416 m is hard and thrilling but rewards you with some magnificent views of the Himalayas. We will end this trip with a visit to Muktinath which is an important and holy site for both Hindus and Buddhists.

In short we can sum this trail up as a classical one since it provides all the delights which Annapurna has to offer - the different cultures of the different tribes residing in this area, fantastic landscape, great mountain views and last but not the least the exhilarating experience of crossing the 5,416m high Thorung La Pass.

In case if one wants to do the full Annapurna circuit we can always organize it.
