In order to get a good start in the countryside, you will start your trek from Jagat from Kathmandu and hike to the village of Dharapani. Then your trek will follow with Chame, Pisang until you reach Manang.
During this process, your body will have some time for acclimatization. This is an important part of the trek before you get to cross the Thorong La Pass, which is a summit pass and the highest point of the circuit at 5,400 m. Other villages at this altitude worth seeing are Ledar and Phedi before you head out to the most sacred village of the region, Muktinath. This village is considered “the place of liberation”. It is said that the originator of Tibetan-Buddhism Padmasambhava came here to the Muktinath temple to meditate during the 8th century.
This is a great trek to experience if you're looking for something that is a bit more physically challenging. This is a route that is central to Hindus and Buddhists and the route of their pilgrimages for this historical tradition. Your perception of the Nepalese culture through this experience will forever change your life as well as broaden your knowledge from this beautiful part of the world with this famous trek.

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?
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?
Do I require a porter for carrying water?
On most popular treks you can expect plenty of places where you can refill your water bottle, meaning you don’t need to carry a huge water supply with you. Bring an extra bottle of water if you are concerned. If you already have a porter, you can ask him/her to carry water as long as it is within the weight limit. Another option is to carry water purification tablets or LifeStraw, both of which can be found in Kathmandu.
