Trip Introduction

Annapurna Circuit is renowned among the trekkers in the world with lush green valleys and fascinating villages that offer impressive snow-capped views of the white Himalayas. It gives us an opportunity to explore the Himalayas from bottom to top and from many different angle. The trek goes along the Marshyangdi River, offering views of Manaslu and Himal Chuli to the east. The trek leads you to the fine Himalayan ranges and highest point of Annapurna Circuit, Thorong La Pass (5,416 m). The circuit is walked in counter-clockwise direction due to difficulties of crossing the passes. While traveling from clockwise, it would be difficult for many people to manage in one day as there is longer ascent and shorter ascent from west to east.

The stupa used to be where the Narayanhiti Musuem is at presently. As per the astrologers, only one with the battis gun was supposed to be sacrificed. While prince was only the one with such quality so, the king sacrificed the hen. The stupa at present is the place where the hen's head was fallen.
