ANNAPURNA ROUND

 NEPAL  

30 OCTOBER - 8 NOVEMBER, 2019

 

PRICE: 920 USD/per person

MINIMAL GROUP SIZE: 6 runners 

(Please don't make any travel arrangements until we notify you that the group size has met the minimum)

There are many features that make the Annapurna region a unique place in the world and attracts huge number of trekkers every season.

It has the world’s deepest river gorge—Kali Gandaki Gorge, which is 3 miles long and 1.5 miles wide and Tilicho lake -the world’s highest altitude fresh water lake.

Around Annapurnas there is some unique cultural diversity: Buddhist stupa's and Hindu pilgrimage sites.

We will stay in some very old Himalayan villages and will meet a lot of nice people (included tourists).

Most-likely we will face some challenges crossing over Thorung-La pass (5416m).

And, yeah, amazing views of the Annapurna massif will be everywhere!

Come and run with us!
