HIGHLIGHTS
  • Cross the Thorong La Pass at 5,416 meters, the highest point of the Annapurna Circuit trek
  • Travel through the world’s deepest gorge, Kaligandaki
  • Witness some of the world’s highest mountains: Dhaulagiri, Manaslu and Annapurna
  • Visit the pilgrimage site, Muktinath Temple
The Annapurna Circuit is one of the most spectacular trekking routes in the world with lush green valleys and fascinating villages that offer impressive snow-capped view of the Himalayas. Starting from less than 1,000 meters, it gives us a chance to explore the Himalayas from bottom to top and from many different angles and perspectives. This trek starts from Syange which goes along the Marshyangdi River, with great views of Manaslu and Himal Chuli to the east. This magnificent trek leads you to the fine villages of Manang and Mustang, inhabited by a wide diversity of people from different ethnic groups.

The highlight of the trek is crossing the highest point of the Annapurna Circuit- Thorong La Pass at 5,416 m. Due to the difficulties of crossing the pass and long altitude gain, the circuit is usually walked in a counter-clockwise direction.

As we descend to the west at Muktinath from the pass, we continue to the barren Tibetan like village of the Kali Gandaki – the world’s deepest gorge that passes between the giant Annapurna (8091 m) and Dhaulagiri (8167 m) mountains. After you cross the Thorong La Pass from Manang to Muktinath, we head to Tatopani hotsprings and climb to Poon Hill for a breathtaking panoramic view of the Himalayas right before descending back to Pokhara.

QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS Find answers to the most frequently asked questions about this tour.
  • What is the required budget for a trip to Nepal?

    How much you spend in Nepal is largely decided by things you want to do in the country. A 5-day trekking trip in Nepal can start from as little at USD 400 per person. A weekend-long safari in Chitwan National Park is available at less than USD 200.

    On average, seven days in Nepal with accommodation and some or all meals included costs anywhere between USD 700 to USD 1500 per person. Good rooms at hotels in Nepal range from USD 25 to over USD 150 per person, per night, while around USD 1.5 a day can buy you three meals in decent restaurants. 

  • 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.

     

  • 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 Asia open for tourists?

    Despite the initial fears of the Covid-19 pandemic, most Asian countries have managed to mitigate its effects. As such, many popular destinations throughout the continent are currently open for travelers with precautionary measures like mandatory vaccinations. A few countries, however, require newly arrived travelers to spend a couple of days in quarantine.

    As of February 2022, countries like Thailand, Laos, and Cambodia are officially open for vaccinated tourists without the need for quarantine. Meanwhile, India and Indonesia are two of the countries that may require you to quarantine for up to a week on arrival. However, Japan, Vietnam, and Myanmar are yet to open their doors to visitors.

     

  • 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.
