Annapurna Region

Annapurna Seven Passes Trek

Annapurna Seven Passes Trek is one of the mostextremely adventurous; a place where you can immerse yourself in authentic cultures, purely lush and untouched natures and be inspired by the tremendously spectacular mountain scenery on the planet.
It begins at Tal village and Karte Manang and ends at old Jomsom the lower Mustang. Total distance of this strenuous trail is 225 kilometers. Asal and I; each of us lost minimum of 10 kg weight and gained well resilience! Most part of this trail is very confusing (no trail signs!). Do not try to walk it without an expert guide, which is totally unsafe! And beware of some guides and agencies in Nepal; they might try to offer this trek to their clients without a field experienced guide, which is even dangerous!
