For many years the Annapurna Circuit was one of the most beautiful treks in the world. But in 2004 a general program was started in Nepal to connect all district headquarters by road. One road had to go to Jomsom and one to Chame. Soon it was decided that the roads should even go further to Manang and Muktinath. The constructions were simultaneously started all along way mainly following the existing (trekking) trails between the villages.
Since 2008 one can drive from Pokhara directly to Muktinath. On the Manang side the road was opened for Jeeps in Fall 2012 and should be open now till Manang Soon it was realised by the Nepali authorities that the road had a very negative impact on trekking tourism and ACAP started to find, plan and construct new alternative trails which would avoid the road.
