Annapurna Circuit Trek - Fly Back from Jomsom

The trek has long been considered the best trek in Nepal and one of the world’s classic walks. It used to take three whole weeks to complete the trek. However, since the construction of motorable roads in parts of the trekking trails, the number of trekkers and the length of trek has significantly decreased.
The trek starts from a place called Besisahar, 50 Km drive from Pokhara and 200 Km drive from Kathmandu. Starting at the subtropical climate and deep pine forests the trail ascends to dry, desert- like, trans-himalayan regions. One acclimatization day at Manang, with its wonderful day hikes is important before crossing the 5415m Thorong La Pass, which is the highest point of the trek. This strenuous walk is rewarded by its magnificent views.
From Thorong La pass, the trails descend steeply to Muktinath. Muktinath is a common pilgrimage for Buddhist and Hindus. The trail descends further to Kagbeni, a medieval looking Tibetan influenced settlement.
Ultimately we fly back from Jomsom to Pokhara. Many go for this option because the trek after Jomsom goes through dusty, motorable trails.
