Karma Trek

The Karma trek, also known as the Annapurna Manang trek or the triple-M trek( since it covers Manaslu, Mananag, and Mustang), is a combination of the trek, namely the Manaslu circuit trek, Annapurna circuit trek, and trekking through the forbidden kingdom of Lo Manthang (Mustang). The trek falls more on the adventurous side, so one has to have good health conditions and be aware of a possible encounter with altitude sickness.

The trail of the Karma trek is one of the most desired to be achieved by trekkers around the world. The fact that the trek will take you through the two highest passes in the world, Thorang La and Larke La, makes it challenging, yet the awestruck wilderness, rivers, waterfalls, and cultural and traditional diversities of the Tibetans make it equally, if not more rewarding than other treks. Not to forget, passing through these passes increases the chances of getting altitude sickness, so it is good to have your health checked prior to the starting of the trek.

The Karma trek begins from the Manaslu circuit, followed by the Annapurna circuit, which will finally lead to the forbidden kingdom of Mustang after passing through Thorang La pass. The path of the trek is accompanied by the fascinating wilderness, panoramic views, and remote villages of Nepal. While trekking to the upper Mustang, one will be graced by the magical view of barren mountains, hills, beautiful forests, and eye-pleasing landscapes. The Karma trek holds its place as one of the most popular trekking trails around Nepal.

So here we are offering the chance to experience this trek providing you the experience and thrill of a lifetime along with one of the most exotic views that will leave everyone spellbound with ease and all the hardships being taken care of by us on your behalf and welcoming you to one of the most fascinating and fulfilling trek one can ever be in.
