Bicycle Tour > Annapurna Cicuit

The Annapurna region of Nepal, a couple of hundred kilometres northwest of Kathmandu, is reknowned for its blend of undisturbed nature, spectacular mountain views, and embracing culture. The Annapurna Circuit is typically rated as one of the "top 20" trekking experiences worldwide...Now that is an understatement!

This route is considered one of the true classic trekking routes of Nepal...rated widely as one of the "Top 20" treks worldwide. The trail offers amazing mountain scenery as it penetrates the Northern Himalayan range and Tibetan plateau.

We pass through villages populated by a wide diversity of people. Gurungs, Magars, Chhetris, Thakali and Newars heavily settle the Southern slopes of Manaslu and Annapurna ranges. At higher elevations, human populations thins out and thick forests of rhododendron and fir emerge.

As we enter the Manang valley small fields of millet, wheat and flocks of sheep and goats abound. The Manang people, traditional traders, are Tibetan by origin and Buddhist by religion. As a result, their life style is quite different to those tribes on the Southern slopes.

The Thakali and Mustang tribes control the busy trading and pilgrimage trail along the Kaligandaki and Muktinath Temple and the on through the gap between Dhaulagiri and Annapurna.
