Its trekking trail not only confines to the unparalleled natural beauties but also embraces Muktinath, the pilgrim of the religious significance to the Hindu devotees across the world and also adds the highest pass of the Annapurna Region to make your walk adventurous and challenging.

Beyond this, you proceed to be introduced to the way of life that is rural, in comparison to your comfortable, urban life that lies within your reach. Feel the live difference between having and have nots through Annapurna Circuit Trek, and this trek is also the trek with the cultural getaway as you reach the Thakali villages.
