The Annapurna Circuit Trek is one of the renowned treks which attracts many travelers to the beautiful Himalayan country of Nepal. Experience the perfect blend of beautiful nature, culture and adventure during our Annapurna Circuit Trek.

Trekking around Annapurna Circuit is initiated after taking a 8-10 hrs drive from Kathmandu towards Syange via Besisahar. During the initial days, we trek through barley, rice and potato fields across the lower regions of the Annapurna conservation area.

The delight of crossing the popular Thorong La pass at an altitude of 5416 meters on the way to Muktinath from Manang with the surrounding views of Dhaulagiri and Annapurna I is just incredible. Trekking through Muktinath we descend along the Kaligandaki valley towards the Marpha which is famous for its apple products including apple whiskey.

Another highlight of this trek will be walking through the deepest gorge of the world, the Kaligandaki Valley. After Kaligandaki we head towards Tatopani to relax our body in a natural hot spring. Passing through the Magar and Gurung village on our trails we hike towards Poon Hill at an altitude of 3210 meters which is famous for the spectacular views of snow capped mountains like Annapurna Himalayan ranges, Dhaulagiri Himalayan ranges and Mt. Manaslu.

Most of the time while we are on the panoramic trekking trail of Annapurna circuit, we get spectacular views of three eight-thousanders: Manaslu (8156 m), Annapurna 1 (8091 m) and Dhaulagiri (8167 m). Mt. Annapurna II (7940m), Mt. Annapurna III (7550m), Mt. Annapurna IV (7525m), Annapurna South (7220m), Tilicho Peak (7135m), Nilgiri (7040m), Mt. Fishtail (6998m), Lamjung Himal (6985m), Hiunchuli (6445m), Tukuche Peak (6920m) are more to be named among many other minor peaks; its an awe inspiring place, the views are simply spectacular.

Annapurna Circuit Trek is best experienced if you possess moderate level of physical fitness with passion towards walking, exploring the rich diversity of nature and culture.

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.
