Annapurna Circuit Jomsom Trek - 13 Days

Annapurna Circuit Fly from Jomsom
$1290 All Inclusive Price.

Annapurna Circuit Trek Flying from Jomsom is the shortest version of Annapurna Circuit Trek. It is a lovely short high pass (Thorong La Pass) trek in the Annapurna region but it is not complete Annapurna Circuit/Round/Circle i.e. only half of Annapurna Circuit. The trek should end at Jomsom from where trekkers fly to Pokhara. The Annapurna Circuit trek route is connected by the Kali Gandaki Gorge to the west, the Marshyangdi River to the north and east, and the Pokhara Valley to the south. The Annapurna Circuit is considered one of the best treks in the world, and thousands of tourists visit Nepal every year to undertake this journey. The mountain scenery to be seen up close includes Annapurna Massif, Manaslu, Dhaulagiri, Nilgiri, Tilicho Peak, Pisang Peak, and other snow-capped mountains and hills.

Our 13 day Annapurna Circuit trek starts from Bhulbhule and ends at Jomsom. The trek starts from a low altitude of 820 meters and reaches a height of 5416 meters at Thorong La Pass. There are direct bus services between Kathmandu and Bhulbhule. Buses depart from Gongabu, New bus station (Naya Bus Park). Apart from this, between Besisahar to Chame is now connected by motor (jeep) road (off-road). Off-road driving is suitable for those who have less time and don't mind traveling by local jeep in off-road (rough narrow road) instead of starting trek from old traditional route Besi Sahar or Bhulbhule.

The trek passes along paddy fields and into subtropical forests, several waterfalls and gigantic cliffs, and various villages. The Annapurna Circuit has often been voted the best long-distance trek in the world, as it covers a wide variety of climatic zones and cultural diversity, from Hindu villages in the lower foothills to Tibetan culture in the Manang Valley and lower Mustang.

Muktinath Temple is another attraction of this trek. Muktinath is a holy place for both Hindus and Buddhists, located in the Muktinath Valley at an altitude of 3800 meters at the foothills of the Thorong La Pass (5416 meters).

After enjoying stunning views of the Himalayas from different sides, cross a great high pass, see the arid Tibetan plateau landscape with beautiful prayer flags, a variety of forests, birds and animals, and then finally reach Jomsom where Our trek ends. From Jomsom, you have to catch an early morning flight to Pokhara. Afternoon rest in Pokhara and the next day return to Kathmandu by tourist bus.
