Bhakti Devkota's Anapurna Circuit Trek
Few places in the world have such a splendid variety of natural beauty as the Anapurna region. It is a rare combination of long arrays of snow capped peaks, crystal-clear lakes, turbulent rivers with deep gorges, Tibetan monasteries, hot springs, and friendly local people.

Bhakti is a great guide - whether it is a short 1-2 trek or an extended stay in this majestic region. His 's three-week trek, as an example, takes you far away from the road, into the heart of the high mountains.
Day 01 Kathmandu /Pokhara - Besi Sahar
We ascend steeply to a 4590m, and then along an undulating trail to the glad top of Thorung La (5416m.) from here there are views of the Annapurna range to the south and Mukut Himal bordering Dolpo to the West. The trail descends steeply over glacial moraine, which gives way to grassy meadows before we reach Muktinath. This is one of the most important pilgrimage sights for Hindus. Holy water flows from the 108 carved spouts surrounding the Vishnu temple in a grove of poplars. Muktinath is also home to many ethnic Tibetans and holy Buddhists, who come here for the temple in which fire miraculously burns in a stream of water inside a small but very holy temple.
