After leaving Phedi, the next part of the Annapurna Circuit trek takes you to Muktinath via the challenging Thorong La Pass. This section is known for its difficulty but is highly rewarding. You'll face steep and rocky trails as you ascend towards the pass, and the high altitude adds an extra challenge. It's important to pace yourself, take breaks, and stay hydrated for a safe journey.

adventure series of annapurna circuit trek

My trip with Adventure Series Nepal was nothing but breath-taking. From the start of the trip to the end, their professionalism and attention to details made my journey really memorable. For the trek, they provide me and other trekkers with a quite experienced and friendly guide to safely climb the range. Not only that, but the guide gives us in-depth information about the local religion, culture, and biodiversity of that region. They offered us a quite intensive meal throughout the journey. Despite the remote area, the accommodations were comfortable and well-appointed, offering us nutrient-rich food at the end of the day. Throughout the trip, the breathtaking views of Annapurna took the concentration of my eyes to fall in them. From lush forests to natural spring fountains, every step feels like heaven for me. Passing through Thorong La Pass and the charming villages added memories to the trip.   Overall, my Annapurna trek with the Adventure Series was a lifetime experience. I returned home with unforgettable memories and an appreciation for the beauty of Nepal. If you are thinking of going on such a trip, make sure to give the Adventure Series a try.
