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.

4.8 - Excellent Based on 8 reviews
Wonderful trip!
Madison Pontrelli From USA At
5 - Excellent
“I had such an incredible time on my 14 day trek through the Annapurna Circuit! Subash was the best guide and taught me so much about the mountains we passed, villages we stopped in and festivals we saw along the way. This was my first time trekking at this altitude and with a backpack and it was definitely managagable once I got the hang of things. The views you see along the trek are unlike anything I’ve ever seen before - I’d highly recommend this trip!!”
Lovely route

“We had a wonderful trip despite being less than fit and saw many sights. Our needs were attended to, our guides were prompt, professional and took care of us when we had run out of energy and could not carry on any further.”

The trail drops steeply to Syange at 1070meters from Bahundanda. Leaving Bahundanda a
large waterfall may be seen. Crossing the Marsyangdi River on a suspension
bridge. We then follow the river to the stone village of Jagat before
climbing through forest to Chamje at 1400meters. Overnight at Guesthouse.
5 hours Guest house
Our day begins with the
rocky trail following the Marsyandi Rivers steadily uphill to Tal at
1675meters, the first village in the Manang district. We make a trail verse
crossing a wide, flat valley. The journey continues up and down to Dharapani
at 1890 meters. A stone entrance chorten typical of the Tibetan influenced
villages. Upon reaching Bagarchhap at 2160 meters the typical flat roofed
stone houses of local Tibetans design along with the village surrounded by
apple Orchards and maize fields. Overnight at Guesthouse.
5 hours Guest house
The trail climbs to Tyanja at 2360 meters, then continuing through forest, but near the river, to Kopar at 2590meters. As we reach the Chame, the headquarters of the Manang district,
we are rewarded by the fine views of Annapurna II as you approach Chame &
two small hot springs by the town. Along this route we are introduced to a
local community said to have migrated from Tibet a long time past,
noticeable by their different features. With them, they have bought local
Tibetan house designs and maintained their ways. Overnight at Guesthouse.
5 hours Guest house
The day starts through deep
forest in a steep and narrow valley, crosses a river on a long bridge at
2910meters. We then cross another bridge at 3040meters, from there the view
of the soaring Paungda Danda rock face really begins to appear. From there
the trail joins to climb to Pisang, which sprawls between 3200m &
3300meters. Overnight at Guesthouse.
5 hours Guest house
Today we continue through the
drier upper part of the Manang district, cut off from the full effect of the
monsoon by the Annapurna Range. People of this region herd the yaks & raise
crops for part of the year. They also continue to enjoy special trading
rights gained way back in 1784. Leaving Pisang, we have alternate trails
north and south of the Marsyangdi River which meets up again at Mungji. The
southern route by Hongde, with its airstrip, at 3325meters which involves
less climbing than the northern route via Ghyaru, though there are better
views on the trail that follows the northern bank of the river. From Mungji,
the trail continues past the picturesque but partially hidden village of
Bryanga at 3475meters to nearby Manang at 3540meters. Overnight at
Guesthouse.
Guest house
Today we spend a day
acclimatizing in Manang. The whole day we spend doing some fine day walks
and over viewing the magnificent views around the village & the day time is
best to gain altitude. At the end of the day, we return back to our
accommodation & have a night rest. Overnight at Guesthouse.
5 hours Guest house
Today we leave Manang, &
the trail makes an ascent of nearly 500meters to the Yak Kharka. We make the
climb steadily through Tenki Manang, leaving the Marsyangi Valley.
Continuing along the Jarsang Khola Valley, we reach Yak Kharka at 4000
meters, there we see the many yaks and vegetations steadily more sparse.
Overnight at Guesthouse.
5 hours Guest house
After asending for two
hours the trail descends to cross the river at 4310meters we then climb up
to Thorong Phedi at 4450meters where we have recently found some good
Guesthouses built. Our overnight stay will be there. Overnight at
Guesthouse.

Today is a long trek starting before sunrise at 4 am to reach the
pass by 9-10 am otherwise weather conditions will greatly affect the
journey. We cross over at an altitude of 5416 meters we can be exposed to
strong winds if crossing too late. We start to climb steeply that is
regularly used and easy to follow. However, the problem may arise due to the
altitude and snow. It often causes terrible problems to cross the pass if it
is covered by heavy snow. About four hours climb up to the pass marked by
the chortens & prayer flags. As you reach the top, you are rewarded by the
magnificent view from the top with another 4 hours trek will take to the
holy town of Muktinath. Muktinath means place of Nirvana and is home to the
Muktinath temple as well as several monasteries. It is said that all sorrows
you feel are relieved when visiting the Temple, which is a scared pilgrimage
site to both Hindus and Buddhists. The main pilgrimage normally takes place
in September. The Temple is dedicated to Lord Vishnu and has 108 waterspouts
around it from which Holy water pours. Another attraction nearby is the
Jwala Mai Temple this contains a spring and an eternal flame fed by natural
underground gas. Overnight at Guesthouse.
