HIGHLIGHTS
  • Annapurna Circle Complete a 14 day trek around one of the world's classic trekking route
  • Thorong La Cross this challenging high pass, 5416m, offering stunning views
  • Envision Nepalese culture & temples, especially Muktinath with different religious values
  • Explore the high mountain villages like Manang, Muktinath, Kagbeni, Jomsom etc.
Annapurna Circuit trek is considered to be one of the best treks in the world and for very good reason. It gives you more of an up-close view of what Nepalese culture is like throughout the area, including great scenery.
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.

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.

  • 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 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.

     

  • Is quarantine in Nepal in effect for arriving visitors?

    In response to the current Covid situation, rules for arriving visitors may change frequently and sometimes without notice. Please check the government travel pages and advisories of your home country and the official website of the Nepal Tourism board here.
