This is probably one of the world's most beautiful treks. It will take you through a wonderful variety of landscapes and cultures, from the subtropical lower Marsyangdi valley where Gurung and Thakali settlements dominate to the northern arid Buddhist areas. Along the Marsyangdi River, on easy trails and suspension bridges, through rice terraces and forests, you will slowly gain altitude and acclimatize. After leaving Pisang one can get stunning and extremely up-close views of snowy and glaciated high peaks including Annapurnas 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 forests apart from pine, juniper and scrub rhododendron. Huge glacial moraines abound, etched deeply by wind erosion into fantastic pillars. The Thorong La Pass (5416m) is one of the highlights of this trek. Moreover the religious sanctity of Muktinath and the mules and peculiar customs of Jomsom will leave you spell bound.
