Instead of just seeing the Himalayas from one vantage point, the Annapurna Circuit allows trekkers to view one of the highest peaks in the world from all sides. On this trek, circle round the Annapurna Range across geographically and culturally diverse regions in north-western Nepal. The diversity in offer makes this trek unlike any other in Nepal or the world over.

On this 17-day guided trek, you'll cross the lush and diverse district of Manang to the arid landscape of Mustang through the world's highest pass, Thorang La (5,416 m). The trek offers picturesque views of the Annapurna range, Kaligandaki gorge and Nepal's highest lake, Tilicho (4,919 m), while crossing numerous natural hot springs, waterfalls and pilgrimage sites along the way.

On the Annapurna Circuit, you can witness uncommon sights of Annapurna (8,097 m) with Dhaulagiri (8,167 m), Manaslu, Machhapuchhre, Tukuche and numerous other dazzling crests in the background all along the route. Along the circuit pass through various orchid timberlands, rhododendrons filled hillsides, flat grasslands and arid trans-Himalayan deserts as you witness a diverse landscape rarely afforded by any other trek. Along the way you'll also find people from numerous ethnicities and religions making the journey as culturally diverse as geographically. The extraordinary blend of nature and culture is the thing that makes the Annapurna Circuit trek a standout amongst the most celebrated trekking courses across the world.

March to May (spring season) and September to December (autumn season) are the best periods to make the trek, but it can be undertaken almost throughout the year. Annapurna Circuit trekking is an adventure that requires a good level of fitness with enough enthusiasm to conquer an extremely high pass.

“This is the first time weve booked a tour like this. We were complete novices when it comes to trekking and when it comes to Nepali customs. We were greeted at the airport by our taxi ride even though our flight was delayed and taken straight to the tour companys office. The manager, Khum, had informed us that there had recently been bad weather and that it may be best to take a helicopter at an extra cost in order to complete the EBC tour. We initially thought this was just a money making exercise and so ignored his advice, but when the flight was cancelled the following day, the tour company were very helpful in arranging the earliest possible helicopter.

We had already met our guide Guruu and even though it meant paying for a helicopter for him too, we immediately liked him so much that it was an easy choice for us.

Guruu and our porter Dandi ensured that we made it to EBC even though this meant that they had to walk harder and faster than usual. They did all this with smiles on their faces and always ensured that we were well looked after before thinking of themselves.

It is an amazing experience full of wonderful sights and beautiful people and I would not have wanted to have this experience without Guruu and Dandi. I would recommend them to any of my friends or family who embark on this trek.

The trek itself, amazing! It still hasnt sunk in how beautiful this place is and how weve been immersed in such an inconic setting. Bucket list material.”

“The stops were amazing and going from Ghorepani straight to Ghandruk meant the pace of the whole journey was very good - starts a 'bit' more difficult but ends very comfortably. The hot springs im Jhuni were incredible too! Dev our guide was fantastic, youd be lucky to get him too”

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.

  • 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.

  • Do I require a porter for carrying water?

    On most popular treks you can expect plenty of places where you can refill your water bottle, meaning you don’t need to carry a huge water supply with you. Bring an extra bottle of water if you are concerned. If you already have a porter, you can ask him/her to carry water as long as it is within the weight limit. Another option is to carry water purification tablets or LifeStraw, both of which can be found in Kathmandu.

  • When should I arrive in Kathmandu before the tour?

    We suggest that you arrive at least one day prior to the start day of the trek because the tour operators usually require one working day to arrange trekking permits. Arrive earlier if you want to explore Kathmandu on your own or acclimate to any time differences.
