Trip Overview

Throng La (5416 m) trekking is one of the most popular treks in Nepal. The most spectacular views of the lofty peaks as we trek between the Annapurna Conservation Area and the Mustang, the land beyond the Himalayas,. The trekking route has good variation in biosphere as we trek upwards through the sub-tropical forests to a very dry region of the Tibetan Plateau.

The route only became approachable in 1977 to adventure trekkers as the region was previously a cramped region because of its close proximity to Tibet and the sensitivity of sharing the border issue. We will continue our trails from Besi Sahar to the northern side of the Annapurna massif.  The main highlight of the trekking route will take you to the beautiful and mysterious Kali Gandaki . The river cuts deep between Mount Annapurna (8,091m) and Mount Dhaulagiri (8,167m) in the west and east to create the world’s deepest ravine, 5 times deeper than the Grand Canyon.

When we cross the Throng La Pass at a thrilling elevation, it will be the most gladdening moment of the trek. Trail through the beautiful Himalayan valley of Manang and cross the Throng La Pass to reach another iconic tourist region, Mustang. In Mustang, we will visit the holy site of Muktinath, which is a famous pilgrimage site for both Hindus and Buddhists.  After 15 days of trekking, we will have a truly mesmerizing view of the soaring peaks like Annapurna, Dhaulagiri, Manaslu, Nigiri, and Himchuli, as well as the truly fascinating settlements of the Himalayan region.
