The Annapurna circuit trek is a popular classic trekking route among trekkers worldwide. Filled with magnificent views and mountain scenery, this adventurous 160–230 km hike around the majestic Annapurna massif located in the north-central part of Nepal, is the most preferred long-distance trek in the world.

The trek starts from a low altitude and reaches a height of 5,416 meters at the Thorang La pass, the highest and most challenging pass of the trek. This splendid pass is the best spot on earth to view the sublime beauty of the mighty Himalayas. The trek also crosses two different river valleys encircling the Annapurna range.

Annapurna Circuit Trek begins at Besisahar in the Marshyangdi river valley and ends up in the Kali Gandaki Gorge, the deepest gorge in the world. The scenic trail passes through paddy fields, subtropical forests, amazing waterfalls, huge cliffs, and several villages. Lodges, teahouse accommodation, and hygienic meals are all available along the trek.

Take the opportunity to meet different ethnic people, and learn about their culture and livelihoods. Manang Valley and Lower Mustang are influenced by Tibetan culture. You will also visit Muktinath, a famous Hindu, and Buddhist temple.

Visitors will have magnificent views of Mt. Dhaulagiri (8,167m), Mt. Machhepuchhre (6,993m), Mt. Manaslu (8,156m), Mt. Gangapurna (7,455m) and Tilicho Peak (7,134m) around the circuit.

QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS Find answers to the most frequently asked questions about this tour.
  • How much money do I need to bring with me?

    Your personal budget obviously depends on your spending habits and what is included in your trip cost. If accommodation is included, but meals are not, we would suggest that you bring around 30 USD per day per person for meals. Having a hot shower or charging your device sometimes costs extra. There are also sometimes small crafts/souvenirs to buy along the trekking route which you may want to bring extra money for. Also, consider whether you would be staying in Kathmandu or Pokhara before or after your trek.

  • Is there a “new” Annapurna circuit trail that avoids roads?

    Despite some rumors, there isn't a “new” Annapurna Circuit Trek. It is the same Annapurna Circuit Trek that it always has been. In some parts, trekkers will be walking on the road and in other parts, trekkers will be walking on a trail.

  • Is quarantine in Nepal in effect for arriving visitors?

    There are no quarantine requirements in Nepal for arriving visitors at the moment.

  • How much should my backpack weigh?

    A properly packed backpack (not including your day pack) should ideally not weigh more than 13 kg. It is also important to note that if you are taking a flight to the start of your trek, many smaller aircraft have weight restrictions. For example, if you are flying from Kathmandu to Lukla, you are only allowed 10kg of checked luggage, and 5 kg of hand baggage. Thus, in case of a small flight, you should ideally pack a 10 kg backpack for checked luggage, and then add 5 kg in your hand baggage. You can then re-shuffel the weigt once you start your trek at the trailhead.  

  • Do I need a porter?

    The decision to hire a porter is up to you and usually based on your fitness level and/or budget. One porter can be shared between two people and can carry up to 25 kg. Many trekkers hire a porter to have a more comfortable trek.
