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.

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.

  • Is there a “new” Annapurna circuit trail that avoids roads?

    Despite some rumors, there isn't a “new” Annapurna Circuit Trek. It is the same Annapurna Circuit Trek that it always has been. In some parts, trekkers will be walking on the road and in other parts, trekkers will be walking on a trail.

  • Is quarantine in Nepal in effect for arriving visitors?

    There are no quarantine requirements in Nepal for arriving visitors at the moment.

  • 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.
