One of the classic Himalayan treks, Annapurna Circuit Trek provides marvelous views of sub-tropical forests, gorgeous valleys and rivers, majestic mountains, and numerous ethnic settlements with their culture and ways of living. Annapurna Circuit Trek is one of the easiest and the most fulfilling treks in Nepal packed with the allures of nature and culture in abundance.

Annapurna Circuit Trek begins with your arrival in Kathmandu, from where we will drive to Besisahar. The trekking begins from Besisahar and passes through many culturally and geographically rich places–Bahundanda, Chyamche, Bagarchhap, Chame, and Pisang–before reaching the famous Thakali village of Manang. The trek then moves on to Thorong La Pass (5416m), the highest elevation of the trek, which provides the mesmerizing view of the Annapurna massif and Dhaulagiri massif. Muktinath, having high religious importance to both Buddhists and Hindus, is another destination of the trek. Marsayangdi River and the Annapurna mountains along with many other snowy peaks is our backdrop throughout the trek. The variety of villages inhabited by people from different cultural and religious background of Nepal and the Tibetan influence on them along with the chance to acquaint with them is one of the significant features of this trek. The diversity of scenery this trek provides from the majestic mountains to the graceful rivers, the waterfalls, the valleys, and the sub-tropical forests are really enthralling and unique. The world’s deepest gorge, Kali Gandaki valley, and the sunrise from Poonhill are other features of this trek. Due to the difficulty of crossing Thorong La Pass (5416m) in its frozen state, March-April and October-November are the best months for trekking in the Annapurna Circuit.

Frequently Asked Questions

What Can I Expect on a Trekking Holiday?

Trekking Days are designed so that the walking is enjoyable and safe. Typically, our trekking holidays involves 4 -8 hours of hiking per day, including a lunch stop. The trail varies from easy hiking on the lower elevation to strenuous walking over 5000 meters in the Himalaya Mountains. The day begins early at around 6.30 in the morning with a cup of tea. Before breakfast is the best time to pack your items not needed during the day into duffle bag keeping the essentials or items you wish to access throughout the day in your daypack. After breakfast, we are usually on the trail by 8.00 am. Lunch is around 12 pm and is generally 1-2 hour break. We reach our camp or teahouse by 4 pm as the afternoon walk is generally shorter than the morning. The time from arriving at the teahouse or campsite till dinner is your free time. There is always tea available, and sometimes side trips are available. Dinner is normally served around 7.00 pm. A common misconception is that if you are a slow walker you may hold people back - NOT SO. The group members often string out and there will be an hour or two between the first to arrive and the last. You walk at your own pace and stop when you feel like it. There will be always our trekking Sherpas, guides and porters at the front and the rear ensuring no one gets lost.

With that said, on all our treks you are encouraged to take your time, set your own pace and enjoy the surroundings. Most first-time trekkers are concerned that they won't keep up. They soon discover that a steady and moderate pace will ensure an enjoyable trek, and have the energy for the duration of the trek. Trekking is not a walking competition. However, the fitter you are, the more you will enjoy it, and you will have enough energy for extra activities.

Tipping is an accepted part of trekking although it is a completely personal matter. The amount depends on your budget and appreciation of their work. Budgeting up to 10 % of the trek is a good estimate.

What is Trekking Peak?

Trekking peaks is a permit classification, and are the least expensive permits for climbing. They are also peaks that have been classified as having the least amount of technical climbing to reach the summit. Generally, these peaks can be done in a day from a high camp to the summit and back to high camp on the same day. The routes we use are chosen for their objective safety, involve easy angled snow slopes, straightforward ridges and occasionally minor scrambling. You will be using crampons, an ice axe, harnesses, fixed ropes, etc. for ascending and descending. We will introduce, review, demonstrate and provide ample time to practice all the skills required for the climbing. Trekking Peaks are carefully designed to deliver an exciting opportunity to climb a Himalayan peak while providing proper acclimatization. These treks are open to fit, determined walkers who have previously undertaken 'strenuous' treks; previous mountaineering experience is an advantage but not essential.
