highlights
  • Trek in the stunning Annapurna Mountain Range
  • Cross the world's widest mountain pass – Thorong La – at 5,416 meters
  • Visit the world's deepest gorge, the Kali Gandaki Gorge
The Annapurna Circuit trek in Nepal is a classic trek. Cross the world's widest mountain pass at an altitude of 5,414 meters, see fantastic mountain terrain and face the arid landscape of the Upper Manang region close to the Tibetan Plateau. On this trek you will also visit Kali Gandaki, the world's deepest river gorge valley, visit Muktinath, a world famous Hindu Pilgrimage site, and come across three ethnic communities in Nepal, the Gurung, Manangi, and the Thakali people. It is no wonder that the Annapurna Circuit trek is a famous trekking destination in Nepal!

This three-week trek starts from Besisahar and travels along the Marshyangdi River, with great views of Mt. Manaslu and Himal Chuli to the east. Along the path you will face varying trekking trails, many local villages and majestic mountain views.

The highest point of the trek is the Thorong La Pass, the world's widest pass at an altitude of 5,416m. To avoid altitude sickness, we trek the Annapurna Circuit in an anti-clockwise direction making sure that we gradually acclimatize to the increased heights.

We are looking forward to taking you on a fantastic trek. Please see the itinerary for day-by-day details.
Day 01: Arrival in Kathmandu airport (1345m).
Here you will be met by our airport representative and transferred to hotel by private tourist vehicle. Overnight at hotel on BB plan.

Day 02: Drive to Besisahar by bus (830m). 6 hours.
Trekking staff will arrive at your hotel at 7.00 am in the morning to pick you up. A 7 hours’ drive awaits us to Besishar. It is about 185km from Kathmandu. We will overnight at a guesthouse.

Day 03: Drive to Syange and trek to Chamje (1400m). 5 hours

Day 04: Trek to Bagarchhap (2160m). 5 hours.

Day 05: Trek to Chame (2630m). 5 hours.

Day 06: Trek to Pisang (3300m). 5 hours.

Day 07: Trek to Manang (3540m). 5 hours.

Day 08: Acclimatization day at Manang village.
Today we spend a day acclimatizing in Manang. The whole day we spend doing some small walks exploring the surrounding landscape.

Day 09: Trek to Yak Kharka (4000m) 5 hours.
Today we leave Manang. The trail ascends nearly 500m to Yak Kharka. We make the climb steadily through Tenki Manang, leaving the Marsyangi Valley. Yak Kharka lies at an altitude of 4000m and we overnight there in a guesthouse.

Day 10: Trek to Thorong Phedi (4450m) 5 hours.

Day 11: Trek to Muktinath (3800 m) via Thorung La pass (5416m) 8 hours.
Today is a long but exciting day. At 4 am in the morning we will set off so as to reach the pass by 9-10 am. This will greatly increase our chances of getting over the pass as weather conditions are more favourable in the morning. Upon reaching the top, you are rewarded by magnificent views. We take a break for 30 min (if the weather permits) and enjoys the pass. Hereafter we will trek down to Muktinath, the famous Hindi site.

Muktinath means place of Nirvana. It is home to the Muktinath temple. It is said that all sorrows you feel are relieved when visiting the Temple, which is a scared pilgrimage site for both Hindus and Buddhists. We will visit Muktinath temple and stay overnight at a guesthouse.

Day 12: Drive to Tatopani (hotspring) 4 hours

Day 13: Tatopani to Shikha (2020m/ 6116ft) (5 hours)

Day 14: Shikha to Ghorepani (2834m/9298ft). (4:30 hours)

Day 15: Ghorepani to Poon Hill to Tadapani (2520m/8268ft).
Poonhill is another great highlight on this trek providing us with 360 degree panoramic views of the Himalayan mountain range. Here you will get fantastic views likely to stay with you for the rest of your life.

“Fantastic classic trek ( over 3 weeks ) with customized side trips and additional stay in some interesting places during the trek. We got a friendly guide and team which took care of us, including great support from the office staff in Kathmandu as well. Very helpful and friendly team (in all matters).”

“I organised 2 treks with Babu, the Annapurna Circuit Trek and 2 years later the same trek, including Tilicho Lake. The organisation was excellent, from picking up at the airport, the hotel accommodation, Kathmandu sightseeing, the whole trek....all. Not one complain. The company offered more than I, more than the whole group expected. In future, we will choose Unique Path Trekking & Expedition again.”
