Annapurna Classical Trek Overview

Annapurna Classical Trek is a small but very delightful circuit trek that cruises into the vibrant foothills of Annapurna Valley. It supplies travelers with abundant opportunities to appreciate the unique culture of the Western people popularly known as GURUNG.

Moreover, the Gurungs have their own language and customs and have earned a  distinct hallmark in regard to their bravery in the history of British Gurkhas.

Furthermore, the Annapurna Classical trek offers you to witness the majestic Annapurna range, the spectacular landscape, and mind-boggling deep gorges. Consequently, thousands of ancient farming terraces beautifully carved over the hill slopes convey a life of rustic that gives you a charm of beauty.

"Every mountain top is within reach if you just keep climbing"

The splendor of Annapurna Classical Trek:

This trek delivers adventure on the very first day. Being at Pokhara with the view of the beautiful lake, fresh surroundings and the panorama of the Snow Mountains affords ultimate pleasure. The delightful trek to the Australian camp with a remarkable view of imposing peaks in the skyline and walking along the soothing woodland is sensational. The 12-day teahouse Annapurna classical trek is more like icing on the cake that eventually connects the legendary Annapurna Circuit Trek.

Eventually, being at Ghandruk, the biggest Gurung settlement have a different fascination with its unique location and very cultural township.

Walking into the spiritual trail towards Ghorepani is remarkable. Some name this trail as “Lord of the Rings trail’ and some term it the “wedding trail”. This name is basically given for its dramatic supernatural forest setting that's more of a fantasy.

Further, the amount of rhododendron that grows in the spring literally drops on the walking trail making it a genuine wedding trail. Finally, it’s fun being at Ghorepani (Horse-Water) the incredible blue roof settlement. This beautiful town has indeed served as the main junction during the salt trade era between Nepal and Tibet.

Ghorepani is very alluring where tourists, photographers, movie crews, botanists, and many others from far and wide come to visit every year.

Come and join us for this Exceptional trek.
