Trekking through Annapurna Circuit is not only to adore the spectrum of nature, flora and fauna from the lowest elevation to the top of Himalayan mountains, but also to observe the spectrum of human races and culture. The lowland villages are inhabited by the prodominantly Hindu Aryan peoples who greet you by saying “Namaste”, but gradually the people change along with elevation, and after Manang (3520 m), the population turned into Buddhist Mongoloid Tibetans whose greetings is “Tashidelek”. Along the Circuit, you can observe more than ten different races and cultures.
