Everest High Passes

...we shouldn't finish without mentioning admiration for the endlessly busy Mr Lama. He like all World Expeditions staff we met, was very charming and knowledgable, this characteristic seems to be a requirement for employment with the company

GHT Manaslu & Annapurna

This section of the GHT combines the Manaslu Circuit, with the region's most famous trail, the northern section of the Annapurna Circuit, to produce a superb trek that will challenge any Himalayan trekker! Circling Manaslu (8163m), the world's seventh highhest mountain, is a rugged and less developed trail through ancient Buddhist villages close to the Tibetan border, which culminates in a crossing of the high and windswept Larkye La (5105m). From there, the trail descends and intersects with the classic Annapurna Circuit in the village of Dharapani. We head north along this very scenic trail, with great views of the Annapurna massif, and once again gain in altitude as we trek through Manang and eventually over the Thorung La (5416m). The views from this pass are exceptional, stretching out over the Tibetan plateau and the region of Mustang. We descend the pass through the important pilgrimage town of Muktinath and onto Kagbeni, an ancient village with a great location on the Kali Gandhaki Gorge.

traveller reviews

MOST MEMORABLE PART: Probably the awesome views of Manaslu from Samagaon, and also views of the Annapurnas from the GHT as we traversed north of the range.

Food for thought:
It's rare that trekking companies include meals on trek. But we include 3 hearty meals a day, beverages and water, all carefully prepared. We also cater to most dietary requirements.
