19 Days trip with 16 Days moderate to strenuous TREK

 We start this world-famous trek with a delightful drive to Syange via Besi Sahar. Throughout our walk, there are ever-changing panoramas of some of the world's greatest peaks, including Manaslu and the Annapurnas. Beyond the Tibetan Buddhist village of Manang, we cross the stamina-sapping Thorung La (5416m.) to enter the deep valley of the Kali Gandaki.
