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 on the countryside, you will start your trek from Syange/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 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.
Day 01: Drive from Kathmandu to Synge/Jagat (1100m) Duration: 8 hours
We will drive to Beshisahar. We then take a local jeep from Beshisahar to Syange. This drive gives you some insight of the rural people - their lifestyle and their culture. From Syange, we begin our trek. We’ll walk to Jagat. Overnight at a Guesthouse - Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner are included.

Day 02: Jagat to Dharapani (1960m) Duration: 6 hours
We will leave Jagat on foot. Our trail winds up to Chyamje. After crossing a suspension bridge, the trail takes us uphill through the Oak forest. We’ll continue walking for a while until it emerges into a valley. We pass the village of Kodo and ascend to the village of Dharapani. Overnight at Guesthouse - Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner Included.

Day 03: Dharapani to Chame (2630m) Duration: 5 hours
On day 5 of the Annapurna Circuit trek the trail climbs along the mule track into a fir forest and then follows the river alongside the higher oak and maple trees. On the way you will be awe- struck by spectacular views of major Himalayan peaks. Overnight at Guesthouse - Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner included.

Day 04: Chame to Pisang (3300m) Duration: 5 hours
Our trial now follows a steep and narrow river valley winding through deep woodland. The view of Pisang peak and Annapurna II on our way is truly amazing. Overnight at Guesthouse - Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner included.

Day 05: Pisang to Manang (3570m) Duration: 4 hours
Today we will take the upper route to Manang via Ghyaru - Ngawal – Mungji. We will experience more breathtaking scenery as the towering, majestic peaks overwhelm our senses with panoramic views of Annapurna, Pisang peak, and several others. We will notice a change in the landscape and vegetation from today. The cold dry climate creates a much harsher environment. Our short visit to Barge monastery, the largest in the entire district of Manang will be memorable. Overnight at Guesthouse - breakfast, lunch and dinner included.

Day 06: Manang - Acclimatization day
This day is set aside for acclimatization to the higher altitude. We’ll spend our time visiting the monastery with a side trip to Gangapurna Lake. We can also look around the local villages and visit the Himalayan Rescue Association Clinic. Overnight at Guesthouse - Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner included.

Day 07: Manang to Yak Kharka (4,110m) Duration: 3 - 4 hours
From Manang village, the trail crosses a stream, ascends to the village of Tenki above Manang, and then continues to climb out of the Marshyangdi Valley turning northwest up the valley of Jarsang Khola. We’ll then follow the valley northward, passing pastures and a scrub of juniper trees, as it steadily gains elevation. Further on we pass the small village of Ghunsa - a cluster of flat mud roofs just below the trailhead. Now the trail goes through meadows where horses and yaks contentedly graze. We cross the river on a wooden bridge and passan ancient Mani wall in a pleasant meadow before arriving at another small village - Yak Kharka. Gentle but gradual ascent is the key to avoiding altitude problems. Overnight at Guesthouse - breakfast, lunch and dinner included.

Day 08: Yak kharka to Thorong Phedi (4,600m) Duration: 3 - 4 hours
On day 10 we will make our way to the foot of the pass to Throng Phedi. This is a small yet busy settlement catering to the needs of tired trekkers and climbers. Groups such as ours use this point as a base camp. Some members of the group might want to hike to the High Camp today to make next day easier for them –although the Nepal Hiking Team have reservations about this. There is a tough day planned for tomorrow and we stop at Thorong Phedi in order to sleep soundly (rather than risk a less peaceful night in the higher altitude at High Camp). Overnight at Thorong Phedi Guesthouse - breakfast, lunch and dinner included.

Day 09: Thorong Phedi to Muktinath (3800m) crossing over Thorong La Pass (5416m) Duration: 7/8 hours
We will make an early start on our climb to the pass. We need to be fresh for the initial stage of ascent is very steep. As we approach the peak the trail becomes slushy from melting snow. After making our way through rocky ridges, we arrive at the top of the pass (5416m). The top offers an indescribably magnificent 360 degree panorama of snowcapped peaks extending northwards into Tibet. Looking back, we can see several peaks of Annapurna and in front of us is the beautiful gorge of Kali Gandaki. Our trail then descends steeply down to Muktinath (3800m) - an important pilgrimage sight for Hindus. It is a special place and home to many ethnic Tibetans and devout Buddhists. Overnight at Guesthouse - Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner included.

Day 10: Muktinath to Marpha (2670m) Duration: 6 hrs
Our descent continues through the Kali Gandaki Valley to Marpha. Marpha is home to many apple orchids as well as all the various food products made from the fruit. Apple Brandy is a local specialty that you may be lucky enough to taste en route. Overnight at a Guesthouse - Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner are included.

Day 11: Marpha to Ghasa (2010m) Duration: 6 hrs
We descend through the valley following the Kali Gandaki River to Ghasa. We walk along the bank of Kali Gandaki River. Overnight at a Guesthouse - Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner are included.

Day 12: Ghasa to Tatopani (1190m) Duration: 5 hrs
Today, we will walk through the world’s deepest gorge in the Earth at Kopchepani; we then continue descending through the Kali Gandaki River valley to Tatopani. This place is famous for its hot springs. This is the best place to relax your body after a long days trek; we will have one more extra day here tomorrow to relax. Overnight at a Guesthouse - Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner are included.

Day 13: Tatopani to Ghorepani (2810m) Duration: 7 hrs
Leaving the hot spring behind, we ascend again to Ghorepani arriving midafternoon. Overnight at a Guesthouse - Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner are included.

Day 14: Hike to Poon Hill (3210m) and trek to Nayapul then Pokhara (927m) Duration: 7-8 hrs

This morning, we will get up early and hike to Poon Hill. From here you will see a superb view of the sunrise and a panoramic view of the Himalaya, including Mt. Dhaulagiri, Annapurna South, Fishtail, and others. After visiting Poonhill, we will come back to Ghorepani, have a hot breakfast, and trek down to Nayapul then transfer to Pokhara.
