The classic trek in the Annapurna region is the Annapurna Circuit. The complete circuit has only been possible since the 1980's when the Manang area was officially opened up to the non-Nepal visitors. For an all-round experience of the scenery and cultures of Nepal this trek has a lot to offer. Starting from the lush Marsyangdi valley, that separates Annapurna from that of Manaslu, the scenery is composed of lush cultivated field with dense forest on either side. In the winter season, orange trees are laden with fruit and fragrant frangipani blossoms cast their scent along the trails. As you travel higher the valley becomes more rugged until the villages and forest finally give way to the arid hills of Manang. The Thorangla pass at 5416 meters marks the highest point of this trek after which the trail joins the Kali Gandaki River that follows through the deepest gorge on earth.
