    Yakawa Kang peak (6482m)Mt. Yakawa Kang is located right to Annapurna Circuit is rightly known as Nepal’s classic trek – offers more variety than any other walks of equivalent length, and takes us through virtually every type of scenery that Nepal has to offer. There are superb views of Mt. Manaslu, Annapurna and Dhaulagiri, and the constant variety of landscapes ranges from sub-tropical through alpine to an arid semi-desert akin to Tibet; at the climax of the trek there’s a formidable 5410m. Pass, the Thorung-La, to cross. This is a tented and lodge-based trek, so we spend time in villages inhabited by many of Nepal’s different tribes, both Buddhist and Hindu. Thakali and Mustang tribes control the busy trading and pilgrimage trail along the Kaligandaki valley, until we move through the gap between Dhaulagiri and Annapurna into the western zones, where we meet Gurung and Magars again. On the whole trek, there is not one day during which we do not have magnificent views of different Himalayas. The flora, geography and culture also change dramatically around the circuit. Though it is certainly demanding enough for seasoned trekkers, the Annapurna Circuit is still an excellent introduction to walking in Nepal for those who are confident of their fitness.
