Annapurna circuit trekking is one of the popular trekking circuits in Nepal. The trek of Annapurna region is called Annapurna circuit trekking. In 1980s Manang area was opened for the trekkers, since then the circuit was possible for the trekking.

The region no doubt is rich in sceneries apart from the diverse culture and flora and faunas.

There is no question that if you arrange trekking in the region during the winter season, you can see the orange trees loaded with fruits, you can also smell like perfume that come from the different kinds of flowers which bloom during the season.

Moreover, the higher you go up the more panoramic views of Manange village, forests and queuing hills you can see, which are some of the features of Annapurna circuit trekking.

No doubt, how easy it listens to be, the trekking in the region is the risk as well. Crossing over Thorong La is risk either, at a times it is chance of hazardous especially when it snows. Therefore, the trekkers have to be well prepared before hand.
