Getting over Thorong La Pass and heading down south again along the the west face of the Annapurna Massif and through the prodigious gorge of Gandaki River, the circuit trail takes a surprising turn. You witness the marvelous alpine desert of the Lower Mustang Region. A world of rock, sand, heat and fierce gales amongst the imperious white Himalayan summits.
