One fascinating journey to experience the differing cultures of the Annapurna region. Commencing with a flight into the heart of the lower Mustang district, we continue to the ancient village of Kagbeni, on the border of upper Mustang and the Hidden Kingdom. From here we travel North-East, through arid landscape to the sacred pilgrimage town of Muktinath, this area is Tibet all but in name. The journey back travels through the Kali Ghandaki canyon, the deepest in the World entering into Thakali and Gurung tribal culture, through lush forests complemented by the ever changing views of the Annapurna range. This trek is the easier part of the Annapurna Circuit and is ideal for those with less time or for those not wishing the exertion of a 5416m. pass.
