Annapurna Circuit Mountain Biking to the dizzying heights of 5416m above sea level, Around Annapurna Mountain Biking is the highest mountain ride race on Earth. The Annapurna Circuit (Around the Annapurna) Trek has been highly praised and is a spectacular trekking route in the Annapurna region since it opened to foreign trekkers in 1977. This three week trek starts right from Besisahar which goes along the Marshyangdi River, with great views of Manaslu and Himal Chuli to the east. This magnificent trek leads you to the fine village inhabited by a wide diversity of people from different ethnic groups, offering spectacular and majestic views of the white Himalayas. It continues to the north of the main Himalayan range to the high and dry Tibetan Plateau, the scenery is equally breathtaking. The highest point of the trek is Thorung La pass at the top of the valley at 5416 meters high. Due to the difficulties of crossing the pass, the circuit is usually walked in a counter clockwise direction.
Traveling clockwise the longer ascent and shorter descent from west to east is too much for many people to manage in one day. As we descend to the west at Muktinath from pass, we continue to the barren Tibetan like village of the Kali Gandaki - the world's deepest gorge passes between the giant Annapurna and Dhaulagiri mountains. After you cross the Thorung La pass from Manang to Muktinath the final seven days of the circuit trek are the same as the Jomsom Trek from Pokhara, but in reverse.
Altitude, temperature extremes, harsh living conditions and a very tough terrain make Yak Attack one of the hardest mountain bike races around.
