Round Annapurna Trekking via Jomsom – Trip Overview

Round Annapurna trekking vis Jomsom gives you a full adventure and exploration around the Annapurna circuit. We cross the lowland villages of the Himalayas, Tibet, the country’s remote northern slope of the Manang region, along the 5416-meter height through the dramatic Kali Gandaki – probably the highest point of climbing. This itinerary has been designed for young people who have more time to enjoy the Himalayas and for the long time spend in Himalayas. Annapurna region is considered one of the best hiking areas in the world. Round Annapurna trekking has spread in the middle of Kaski Nepal, Mustang and Manang area. The starting point is 790 meters and the highest point of the protected area is Mount Annapurna, which is almost (8091 meters) height. Ghandruk and Ghorepani village provides the stunning panoramic views of the Annapurna mountain range. The turning point of Annapurna Trekking Circuit is Jomsom. This is totally occupied with Vegetation, which includes various orchids and azaleas. On this Annapurna trek, there are about 100 different mammals, including the rare snow leopard and the blue sheep. There are about 478 types of birds and 39 species of reptiles and 22 species of amphibians. Best gateway to Annapurna Trekking area is Besisahar ,Pokhara, Kaski district and Lamjung.

In addition, you may be satisfied with special ethnic companies living in different parts of the Annapurna Ring Road climate. We can make changes between plants and animals based on different geographical and cultural differences. When you leave Besisahar, you can stroll through the rice fields of Annapurna Reserve, the pleasant villages and the lush forests. In addition, this trail brings Lamjung Himal, Manaslu (8,156 m), Upper Tukuche, Machhapuchhre (6,996 m) and a series of higher peaks. Moreover, you can bypass Annapurna to avoid the rich paddy fields, streams and arrest villages that harvest very isolated subdivisions, Manan (3,597 m). After the second extraordinary pass by Thorung-l. Through (5416 meters), we are able to walk nearby Hindu and Buddhist shrines, called Muktinath, which means “the god of redemption.” This sacred community is located on dry land in the Himalayas. Annapurna travels along the Kaligandaki Valley and Annapurna Base Camp on Popo Mountain in Gaporepani.

The beautiful Annapurna Himalayas and many beautiful and diverse mountains surround the Annapurna. Excursions to the Annapurna round through the Kailash hiking trail in Nepal will allow you to avoid the striking bamboo, rhododendrons and forests and experience the great creatures of Nepal.

Meals:

On our trek, we can enjoy authentic Nepalese cuisine and the most common international cuisine (Tibet, continent, Italy, India, etc.). Breakfast and dinner will be served at the teahouse or the house menu, where we will spend the night and lunch will be served on the way to the next destination. All meals will be served during the trek and at Kathmandu, only breakfast will be served. The hotel will also offer welcome and farewell dinner for the guest.

Can I be a good trekker?

Round Annapurna, trekking Via Jomsom is highly demanding trek but suitable for passionate walkers who have the ability to walk at least 5-6 hours a day with a light rucksack. At least the trekker need to be prepared physically and mentally as you might even need to walk 8 to 9 hours each day. Walking in higher altitude is more physically demanding than walking in the lower altitudes; however, if we have good health with average physical fitness, positive attitude, self-confidence and strong determination, we can accomplish the trek successfully. It will be better to have exercised and jogging regularly before embark on the trek to enhance our strength and stability. Past hiking experience is preferred but no technical skill is required. It is important that we consult with our doctor before booking this trek. Participants with pre-existing medical conditions such as heart, lung, and blood disease should inform Himalayan Adventure Nepal before booking the trek.
