This is probably one of the world's most beautiful trek. It will take you through a wonderful variety of landscapes and culture, from the subtropical lower Marsyangdi Valley where Gurung and Thakali people dominate to the northern arid Buddhist areas.

Along the Marsyangdi River, on easy trail and suspension bridges, through rice terraces and forest, we will slowly gain altitude and acclimatize well. After Pisang we will get stunning up-close views of snowy and glaciated high peaks including Annapurna II, III and IV. This remote area lies in a rain shadow formed by the Annapurnas and the landscape supports little in the way of forest apart from pine, juniper and scrub rhododendron.

Huge glacial moraines abound, etched deeply by wind erosion into fantastic pillars. The Thorong La (5416 m) wilderness is one of the highlight of this trek. After the pass, we reach Muktinath and then Jomsom.

    This review is for a trip to the Annapurna region in November 2017. Overall, a positive experience. All aspects of my trip were well organized. My guide was informative & patient. Value for the money was great! I would definitely travel with Halesi Treks again. Thank you.

    The trek itself is one of the best experiences I ever have had my entire life and a lot of credit for that goes to ManKumar and my guide Tek who organised the whole trip from the very beginning till the end. My guide Tek was down to earth and an amazing companion for the week. Highly recommended!

    I recommend my good friend Man kumar Tamang

    I want to recommend my good friend MAN KUMAR TAMANG. In 2004 friends of mine picked him up on the way as a very young, just only 20 years old porter guide because of his friendly, open face. After the trekking tour they exchanged their contact details because his cheerful nature and because they got on so well while trekking. Three years later they planed another visit in Nepal and contacted Man Kumar again and asked if he want to guide them another once.

    This trekking tour was in 2007 and Man Kumar guided at least this friends and furthermore me , my aunt and my uncle on the Annapurna circuit. 3 years passed after 2004, Man Kumar grew up got the guide licence and learned English in Kathmandu very well. All of us got to be good friends during this trek and in 2008 I walked alone with him to EBC. It was an unforgettable trekking! Since then I have recommended him to many friends, which all were happy with him. He is a friendly, reliable and professional guide. He is trying to make all wishes possible and told us many interesting things about himself, his childhood and life in his village and about his family.

    It was so interesting to speak with him! Together with Man Kumar we often got directly entrance to local kitchens and houses. Some of his costumers also had the possibility to visit his birth-village in Solukhumbu and to experience there with him and his parents, brothers and sister the real Nepal  people, culture and life away from the touristic ways. Since 2010 Man Kumar is married and father of a very sweet daughter. In 2011, I was last time with him on a trek  first trekking with my daughter. We had a great time together on this trek (Poon hill/Tatopani). Man Kumar and my little girl (this time nearly 3 years old) got on very well too. I had no fear to entrust my child to him. In Kathmandu we met also his wife and his daughter and the little girls were playing together. I hope he will guide many more costumers (friends!) in future and I wish his family all the best. I am looking forward to go with Man Kumar many more times!
