It opened for tourism in 1980 and since then the Annapurna region trekking has been recognized as one of the world's best trekking trails according to a recent survey by Modern Maturity (USA). The trek takes you through Rhododendron forests and over the foothills of the Annapurna and Dhaulagiri mountains.

This trek with Nepal Eco Adventure is ideal for beginner as well as experienced trekkers.

Overall, this is a very rewarding trekking experience and we look forward to give you a fantastic trip.
Day 1 Drive to Beshishar (923m) and trek to Bulbule. 7 hours Guest house

From Kathmandu, we start early to drive to Besishar. The road up to Besisahar is quite good, but from there on we walk 2 hour to reach Bulbule. Once we reach there, we freshen up and spend the night there.

Day 2 Trek to Chamje (1410m). 7 hours Guest house

On the first day of the trek, we cross through various suspension bridges, waterfalls and continue past rice paddies and forests. Once we reach the cliff in Jagat, we can view the Marsyangdi river below and rocky hills all around. The bee hives at the top of the cliffs is an attraction of the day’s trip. In a short while we reach Chamje where we spend the night.

Day 3 Trek to Bagarchhap (2160m). 6 hours Eco lodge

As we move past narrow and steep valleys, among Rhododendron, Pine and Bamboo forests, in the rocky folds of a mountain, we come across a bridge that takes us to a quick ascent and finally atop a climb to reveal a widening valley. After reaching the village of Tal, we have to move across barley, wheat and potato farms for a while to reach Dharapani. From there we turn west through the fir and pine forests to reach Bagarchhap.

Day 4 Trek to Chame (2710m). 6 hours Guest house

From Bagarchhap we start ahead to reach a Danaque village and then a steep climb to reach a Tamang village with exquisite views of Manaslu, Lamjung , Annapurna and other mountains beauty. As we trek through a Tibetan village that acts as a transition between the lowlands and high hills, we follow a gradual flat path to Thanchowk, Kolo and finally to Chame.

Day 5 Trek to Pisang (3240m). 5 hours Guest house

We first pass through the older part of Chame, climb up to Telekhu and continue on a long, levelled path through forest to Bhrathang. The trails rounds a bend and once we continue ahead we need to cross back to the south bank of Marshyangdi River on a suspension bridge. Then the trail forms a gentle climb over a pine forested ridge and then levels again as we move from the upper part of Manang valley to Pisang.

Day 6 Trek to Manang (3540m). 5 hours Guest house

The town of Pisang is the beginning of the upper region of the Manang district. On this day, the trek climbs to Braga, a Tibetan styled village. The houses here are stacked upon each other forming verandas with each other rooftops. The main attraction is the Gompa, the largest in the district, with a vast array of statues in display and perched on a high crag with the view of the entire village. After a while we reach Manang, where we refresh and spend the night.

Day 7 Acclimatization day at Manang. 3 hours Guest house

As we are moving to higher elevations, we need to acclimatize to avoid the risk of altitude sickness. Manang is the perfect spot with its beautiful natural setting and a hike up to Gangapurna lake view point in the afternoon for a short detour.

Day 8 Trek to Yak Kharka (4120m). 4 hours Guest house

After the rest, we feel rejuvenated to continue forward on our trip. As we move pass the tall trees towards the alpine grass and junipers, we reach meadows with a few horses and a number of yaks grazing around. The serene environment with meadows and steep slopes of Yak Kharka is the perfect place for us to spend the night. We can also choose to walk for an hour to reach Letdar and spend the night there

Day 9 Trek to Thorung Phedi (4,560m). 5 hours Guest house

Trekking to Letdar helps in getting acclimatize to the increasing heights as we climb along the east bank of Jarang Khola. In some time we reach a meadow surrounded by vertical cliffs, the Thorung Phedi. Sighting of blue sheep and snow leopards have been reported a few times in the area, whereas Lammergeyers and griffons are quite common. We spend the night here.

Day 10 Over Thorung La (5,416m) to Muktinath (3,802m). 8 hours Guest house

The trail is comparatively easier having been trodden for years, but could get difficult with strong winds at the upper regions. The trail is believed to have been used for hundreds of years to take sheep and yaks in and out of Manang along with other trading goods. We reach Thorung Phedi in about 6 hours. After we reach Thorung-la pass, our entire hard walk will be rewarded by the beautiful views of Annapurna, Gangapurna and a heavily glaciated peak of Khatungkang. After a 1600m of descent, we view the glorious Dhaulagiri standing in the distance. After a while, the trail becomes less steep and enters grassy fields and meadows to finally reach Muktinath. In Hindu religion, Muktinath refers to a place of nirvana which houses a temple and a number of monasteries, making it a holy site for Hindus and Buddhists alike. The main attractions of the site are the Jwalamai temple with a spring and an eternal flame as well as the 108 water sprouts that pour holy water. These are visited by thousands of pilgrims every year.

Day 11 Trek to Josmosm(2750m) via Kagbeni. 6 hours Guest house

From Muktinath, we follow a path of the Jomsom trek where we descent through meadows, streams and fruit trees to reach Kagbeni. Look around and keep moving downwards from Kagbeni we reach Jomson, Kali Gandaki valley.

Day 12 Drive to Tatopani (1190m) 5 hours Guest house

From Jomsom it is about the 5 hour scenic drive to Tatopani. Since the road has been build lots of people take either Jeep or Bus rather than trekking. It is Jeep road driving through the villages and nature. After passing through the numerous villages, we finally reach Tatopani. The main attraction of the place is the hot spring, which is a sauna with natural source of hot water. It is a relaxing experience to retire after the long journey.

Day 13 Trek to Ghorepani (2750m). 8 hours Guest house

Now we move from Tatopani through villages of midland Nepal with terraced fields and inclined farmlands. As we hike an ascent we move past rhododendron, magnolia and other vegetation of the area. We finally reach Ghorepani as we witness the beautiful mountains in the evening sky. We rest in Ghorepani to make an early start to Poonhill in the next morning.

Day 14 Sunrise Poonhill, trek Nayapul -Drive to Pokhara 8 hours Hotel

Early morning climb up to Poonhil for the sunrise is the main highlight of the trek as we make our trip to the vantage point early in the morning with sunrise. Once you see the snow capped peaks highlighted in the changing golden rays of the sunrise, it will be one of the unforgettable moments of one’s life. The peaks in the scenery include the Annapurna range and Dhaulagiri. Also known as a photographer’s paradise, we can spend some time here taking breathtaking pictures of the spellbinding surrounding, capturing the spectacular moments in a frame. Then we go down to Ghorepani breakfast then 5 hour trek down to Nayapul first part of the trek down until Tikhedhunga is quite steep down hill with lots of steep.From there we move past terraced fields for a few hours to reach Nayapool.

“We went in October and spent the entire trip marveling at the amazing (and ever changing) landscape of the trail through the Annapurnas. Every day there were amazing views of mountains, waterfalls, etc. A must for anyone who loves hiking and nature. The Nepalese were so friendly and welcoming as well - such a beautiful country.”

“I would thoroughly recommend trekking in December, we had clear blue skies every day, and the paths (pretty much) to ourselves. The track was really good quality, and the teahouses we stayed in/food were all excellent.”

“My girlfriend and i managed to squeeze the Annapurna Circuit into 10 Days in Dec 16. We began the adventure at Chamje, trekking on foot all the way past Thorong La Pass to Muktinath. The rest of the journey was via shared jeep and local bus to Pokhara. Was a very fulfilling trip with clear blue skies and awesome mountain views along the way. It was challenging both physically and mentally but we truly enjoyed ourselves!”
