Come join us for an adventure around the Annapurna Circuit. This event will follow a unique format combining cultural running and small group fastpacking:

  • Traverse multiple Himalayan ecosystems and dig deep while crossing Thorung Pass measuring in at 5,405 meters (17,728 feet).
  • Do a part circumnavigation of the tenth biggest mountain in the world. Take in the different perspectives of the Annapurna range and other nearby giants like Himchuli and Dhaulaghuri.
  • Travel quick, light, and self-supported without mules or porters while exploring alternative trails through lesser visited villages and less used trails.

 

Dates: Last two weeks in September, see our parent site www.himalayanadventurelabs.com for more information.
