Embark on an 18-day adventure that seamlessly blends the iconic Annapurna Circuit trek with a captivating journey into the hidden gem of Nar Phu Valley. This destination is renowned for its rich culture, timeless traditions, and untouched natural beauty.

Our expedition begins with an immersive exploration of the Nar Phu Valley, where we'll absorb the mountain's grandeur and the valley's vibrant culture. From there, we transition to the captivating mountain district of Manang, where the Annapurna segment of our journey awaits.

This trek offers more than the typical Annapurna Circuit experience. We'll traverse breathtaking mountain valleys, traverse charming villages, wander through lush forests, and follow the melodious rhythms of flowing rivers. Throughout the journey, the awe-inspiring Annapurna and Dhaulagiri mountain ranges will be our steadfast companions.

Expect the trek to be physically demanding, but rest assured, the rewards are boundless. Along the way, we'll conquer not one, but two high mountain passes: Kang La (5306m) and Thorong La (5416m). These challenges only add to the sense of accomplishment.

Safety is paramount in high-altitude regions, so we'll strategically break our journey every other day, ensuring ample time for rest and acclimatization. Get ready for an expedition that promises to awaken your spirit of adventure and leave you with memories to last a lifetime.

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.
