Annapurna Circuit Trek is a varied trek in terms of nature, valleys, waterfalls and rivers, villages and Himalayan peaks. Annapurna Circuit Trekking is acknowledged as one of the most fascinating classic treks in the world.

An anti-clockwise trekking from Besisahar to Jomsom is not only an adventure but also a lifetime achievement. The Thorong La Pass [5,416M / 17,769FT] is a must-do on this trek, otherwise Annapurna Circuit Trek remains incomplete.

Villages in the Annapurna circuit trek have their own traditions and culture and there are dozens of villages and teahouses along Annapurna Circuit Trek.

Snowy mountain views and valleys changes constantly and are always magnificent. This beautiful trekking trail crosses Marshyangdi River and Kali Gandaki River countless times.

Successful first time trekkers at altitude
Lucy Brusamarello From Australia At

“My boyfriend and I decided to do this trek and jump straight in the deep end with not much trekking experience let alone at altitude.

We couldn't have been happier with Dawa our guide and Ravindra our porter. Right from our pickup at the airport all the way through to our final dinner in Kathmandu, we were always looked after so well. Dawa was also very experienced and knew a lot about the circuit as well as the history and culture of Nepal. We learnt so much and are so pleased we trekked with Himalayan Leisure.”
What an experience!

“The pre-trek conversation was amazing. Upendra, the director of the company answered so many nonsense questions. The whole trip was a beautiful memory for us. Our guide Dawa and porter were very patient, helping and caring. We wouldn't have made the trip without their continuous support. The dinner at the end arranged by the company was amazing. Foods and accommodation during the trek were great especially when we met many other trekkers ending with complaints about their guides and poor quality lodges. Flying home soon with lots of great memories!”

“Unfortunately, our flight to Lukla was cancelled for 2 days and we decided to divert to Annapurna Circuit Trek as we didn't have more time to wait. It was definitely a great trekking worth doing.”
Amazing!

“We were so blessed with weather almost throughout the journey (the pass day was not clear). The trek was amazing, a little disappointed as we couldn't do our originally planned Everest Base Camp Trek due to weather, everything else went great! Very happy with the company and their performance!”
30 minutes 3 Star Hotel
Welcome to the city of temples and the country of Himalayas. We will welcome you at the only international airport of Nepal; Tribhuvan International Airport. Our airport representative will be waiting for your arrival with a placard written Himalayan Leisure Inc. outside the airport terminal.

6 - 7 hours Guest house
Your trekking guide will pickup you from the hotel in the morning then we will drive to New Bus Park to catch our transport to Besisahar.

The drive to Besisahar is a scenic experience through small settlements around the sides of Nepalese highway. The drive takes about 5 hours from Kathmandu.

We will then complete necessary permit checking facility in Besisahar before we start secondary part of the journey to reach Bhulbhule. On the way to Bhulbhule we will have first glimpse of Himalchuli Peak. Passing small villages like Samdi, Chanaute, Sera and Khudi we will reach small town near the bank called Bhulbhule; the gateway to Annapurna Circuit Trek.
6 - 7 hours Guest house
From Bhulbhule we will start the trek keeping Marshyangdi River on the left side. It is a pleasant walk through beautiful hill sides, towering waterfalls and small settlements. It is mostly flat walk until we cross Ngadi and reach Syange.

From Ngadi we will cross the Marshyangdi River without climbing uphill to Bahundanda and follow the trail on the left or Marshyangdi River.

In Syange we will enjoy our lunch in front of a huge waterfall.

From here we will proceed our trek a little further to Chamje. The trail from Syange to Chamje is gentle uphill on the top of Marshyangdi River.
6 - 7 hours Guest house
We will cross thundering Marshyangdi River to go to right side of the river and start climbing uphill with beautiful views of the valley. During the climb we will be passing small villages named Sattare and Tal Phedi before climbing steady uphill to reach Tal. Tal is a small valley on the bank of Marshyangdi River and Manang region will start from here.

Continuing our trek further we will be passing through villages like Karte, Naje and Dharapani before reaching Bagarchap. This village is host to a few families and good views of the Himalayas.
6 - 7 hours Guest house
We will enjoy our mouth watering breakfast in Bagarchap before starting flat walk until we reach Danakyu. From Danakyu the trail starting climbing uphill through the forests of rhododendron and oak with beautiful views of Manaslu on the back.

Upon reaching Timang Danda we will have spectacular views of the Himalayas. We will enjoy our tasty lunch with spectacular Himalayan background.

Then we will proceed our walk towards Chame passing small villages like Latamarang, Thanchok and Koto. Chame is district headquarters of Manang district with lots of lodges and shops. This place will provide magnificent views of Annapurna II.
7 - 8 hours Guest house
We will cross Marshyangdi river once more and enter the forests of pines. The trail enters inside small valley with gentle ups. We will then meet Bratang village. Walking a little some more from Bratang, we will again have to cross the Marshyangdi river. From here the trail goes steep up before we meet the road to Manang.

We will walk on the road for a while then will reach Dhukur Pokhari; our lunch spot.

From Dhukur Pokhari we will walk flat for another hour to reach lower Pisang where spectacular views of Annapurna range will be on display.
7 - 8 hours Guest house
We will enjoy our meal in front of Pisang Peak then cross the Marshyangdi River once more. The trail enter thin pine forests along with beautiful views of Himalayas. Not many people walk through this trail.

The higher route to Manang is less visited than lower route, however the views can't be compared. Upper route offers stunning panorama of Himalayas but needs little more energy than lower route.

We will stop either in Ghyaru or Ngawal for lunch then continue mostly downhill to Manang.

The whole trail from Ngawal to Manang will show us stunning Himalayan views. As we will be walking on the high route the views of Hunde and Marshyangdi valley on the bottom also looks fabulous.
Guest house
We will stop in Manang one more night for acclimatizing our body. We will have a chance to hike to Ice Lake which is a pretty long day and needs packed lunch.

If you want easier option then we can hike to Gangapurna viewpoint. Milarepa Cave is another option for hiking today. Consult with your guide for a memorable hiking experience.
5 - 6 hours Guest house
We will enjoy our tasty meal in Manang before we start our gentle uphill climb to Yak Kharka. Our trek will be pretty easy for this day without any steep climbs though high altitude can cause some tiredness. The beautiful views will be always there. We also have some chances to see blue Sheep grazing in the mountains. Views of Annapurna, Gangapurna, Tilicho etc. will be always together with us.

It's a day with close and stunning views of snowy Himalayas. On our walk we will pass two small villages called Tengi and Gunsang. Both villages have few basic lodges for trekkers. The trail after crossing Gunsang is mostly flat with couple of suspension bridges.
4 - 6 hours Guest house
It is another special and breath taking day. Amazing views, light trail and towering Himalayas are together with us. The trail until we cross Kone Khola [stream] is mostly flat. Before crossing this stream we will pass two small villages called Churi Ledar and Ledar.

Once we cross Kone Khola the trail will give us sudden steep climb. As we complete steep uphill, the risks of dry landslide will also become higher. We will need to be aware of stones falling down from the cliffs.

Once we cross this risky area the route again becomes gentle up before we reach Phedi. We can stay here tonight and prepare crossing the pass, continuing for another 40-45 minutes will take us to high camp which is about 400 meters higher than Phedi.
7 - 10 hours Guest house
Whether we start from Phedi or High Camp we will have to start our breakfast early in the morning. It is a challenging and special day too.

Once we get our breakfast we will start our trek with torches. The walk can be slippery so we have to be aware of risks. With amazing views around us we will be walking in the middle surrounded by huge white peaks.

There are no lodges or hotels along the way so we have to carry some food with us. There are two tea shops which offers 'world's most expensive tea' but that's special. A warm tea in this altitude and in this place is so special.

Walking for few hours we will reach the highest point of the trek named 'Thorong La' pass. It won't be difficult to recognize the pass as it's surrounded by praying flags. We will enjoy some hot tea here and start walking steep downhill towards Muktinath. It is steep downhill walk with some mountain views far sight.

Once we walk about 1600 meters down we will reach Muktinath (3800M); our destination for tonight. Enjoy some lunch here and explore this small town.
6 - 7 hours Guest house
Our trek will start after having a good meal in Muktinath. We will start walking downhill via Jharkot, Khingar Kagbeni and Eklebhatti. The trail is mostly down until Eklebhatti however it's very dusty due to strong wind after mid-day.

From Jomsom we will also have enchanting views of Nilgiri peak too. Jomsom is last place for many trekkers on this region. There is an airstrip from where we will fly to Pokhara next day.
25 minutes 2 Star Hotel
We will first enjoy our last meal in the Himalayas. We will then proceed to airport to catch our flight to Pokhara. The flight is beautiful beautiful and flies between the mountians. It can be taken as a mountain flight. The views from the windows are unimaginable.
