We can do Annapurna Circuit Trek in 10 Days because before these days this trekking route has not comfortable and proper rode for the driving so we have to start the trek from Beshisahar or Bhulbhule which means long days trip. But nowadays, we can take a private vehicle or be sharing a Jeep from Beshisahar to Dharapani, Chame, Pisang, or Manang before the Thorong-La Pass. Due to our itinerary Annapurna Circuit Trek 10 days, we take transport just to Dharapani or Chame from Beshisahar because from the Beshisahar (1000 miter) we can’t jump directly to over (3,000 miter) we can do but this is much risky and uncomfortable because of the high altitude. The safety and risk-free trip itinerary is as follows. For the great views of the Annapurna Himalayas, get the experience of the local culture, and to explore your journey through ( Biggest pass in the world ) Thorong-La Pass by Visit Hindus Temple in Mukti Nath then back to Pokhara through Tatopani ( Hot Spring ) for ending your trip in Annapurna Himalayas.
