In addition to Everest, the Annapurna region belongs to the most popular trekking region of Nepal, because of the Annapurna I (8’091 m) which is the tenth highest mountain in the world. It offers a fantastic view of Manaslu and Himchuli to the east and further north of the Himalayas to the dry Tibetan Plateau, a breathtaking scenery.
The name of Annapurna is composed of anna (food) and purna (filled); Annapurna is the food-giving goddess or the goddess of wealth.
The highest point of the hike is the Thorung La pass with its 5'416 meters above sea level. Due to the height and difficulty of the pass, usually crosses are counter-clockwise made. If we climb up from Manang to Muktinath from the west, the trail continues through the barren Kali Gandaki Valley - the world's deepest canyon flows through between the giant Annapurna and Dhaulagiri mountains. Other highlights are the hot springs of Tatopani, the magnificent view of point Poon Hill 3’210 m, and rich cultural life. There are many different charming villages of different ethnic groups. The trail goes through the Muktinath Temple, which is a holy temple for Hindu and Buddhist people many Nepalese and Indian people visit Muktinath for praying, they believe if they take bath and pray at Muktinath god bless them to fulfill their Wish.
