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.

Jasprit's review for another Nepal Climbing Adventure Pvt. Ltd. tour
“I have been working with Chris and his team on behalf of my clients for the past one year.

In a nutshell, I couldn't have picked a better partner.

His ability to manage situations (as things are extremely fluid during adventures), remain calm, problem solves and handle updates is beyond exemplary.

Thank you for everything that you do.”

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 does it work with a porter?

    Generally, the porter will pick up the baggage in the morning and drop it at the hotel in the evening. You will not always be walking with your porter or have access to your bag during the day, while trekking. 

  • Is a visa on arrival available?

    Typically, yes. However, in response to the current Covid situation, rules for arriving visitors may change frequently and sometimes without notice. It may be necessary to obtain a tourist visa in your own country before travel. For updated information on visas, please check the Nepal Tourism Board and the Government of Nepal Immigration websites.


  • Is quarantine in Nepal in effect for arriving visitors?

    In response to the current Covid situation, rules for arriving visitors may change frequently and sometimes without notice. Please check the government travel pages and advisories of your home country and the official website of the Nepal Tourism board here.

  • What happens if someone gets altitude sickness, does the rest of the group continue on?

    It depends on the situation. Sometimes, altitude sickness can be treated and the trekker may wish to continue. If not, the rest of the group can continue on if they want and the sick person can descend.
