Trekking the Thorung la pass over 5400 meter –
We have specially designed this Annapurna circuit trekking route making it shorter and avoiding the walk on recently build road. We start the trek from Bulbule after a drive from Kathmandu and finish with Jomsom Pokhara mountain flight keeping the main highlights of classic Annapurna circuit trek intact. Trekking around Annapurna routes includes the Great Himalayan trail from Dharapani to Kagbeni, the Tibetan Buddhist dominated settlements. We explore the Braga monastery, the oldest in the region and the shine of Muktinath, a famous pilgrimage site being worshiped by both Hindu and Buddhist devotees together. No doubt hiking over challenging pass of Thorung la at 5416 meter is one of the main highlights of this trek. The views from the pass is truly spectacular, spreads from the northwest wind eroded “Once Forbidden Kingdom” of Mustang valley to incredible mountain ranges of Annapurna and Dhaulagiri to the southwest. People of Mustang identify themselves closer with Tibet and the Mustang region has actually been part of Tibet in past. Mustang also is one of the last places in the world to view the ancient Bonpo Religion in action at Thini and Lupra villages. We also do explore the peaceful lake city of Pokhara before we return back to Kathmandu to end the exhilirating trip to Annapurna circuit trek.
