A road through the waterfalls
The Annapurna region in Nepal is as magnificently beautiful as it is dangerous. This is every bit true even for the road that takes you through this region. The entry point to the Mustang region that houses the Annapurna circuit lies at a small village called Beshisahar. It’s a 98 km long street that connects Beshisahar with Manang which is the last motorable point in this circuit.
Once you reach Manang, you have to trek your way crossing the Thorung La pass and reach down to Muktinath. From Muktinath, you once again get a motorable road that takes you to the village of Beni which is the exit point of the Annapurna sanctuary.
This entire stretch can take you anything between 15 to 20 days taking you through numerous places of interests like Marpha (Apple Capital of Nepal), Kalopani (Dhaulagiri Icefall) & Tatopani (Hot Spring). While the route remains closed most times of the year, it is a route that is a standout by its standards. It takes you not only through some breathtaking vistas, but also through some of the most life-threatening waterfalls in the region. We will have a fair idea once we watch these videos.
While it is a lifetime experience to travel in this region, the difficult road can prove too much for a lot of people. For them, there is an air terminal situated near Manang that can take you very close to Mt Annapurna.
The Manang Road,
This is an old street that once associated numerous Buddhist religious communities.
