The Annapurna Circuit Trek it has massive view of Annapurna range via Manang Valley is one of the classic walks in Nepal. It includes everything trekking in Nepal has to offer. Highest mountain passes, deepest valleys in the world, the desert of the Tibetan plateau, pine forests, rice fields, monasteries and people as diverse as Tibetan Lamas and Hindu farmers. After driving from Kathmandu to Gorkha, we walk up the lush Marsyandi Valley into the Manang region, greeted by the villages and monasteries of its Tibetan like people. Stunning views of Annapurna, Gangapurna and the glacier dome! Crossing the Thorung La Pass 17,700 ft. rewards us with sights that makes trekking such a special experience. From here we descend to Muktinath, a sacred shrine and pilgrimage site for Hindus and Buddhists. After spending some time here we'll trek down the deep gorge of the Kali Gandaki Valley, one of the deepest valley in the world. Annapurna 26,400 ft. and Dhaulagiri 26,800 ft. tower 4 miles above the valley floor. 

Annapurna Circuit Trek, at initial used to be ended in Beni with trekking path, however now, the trek ends at Muktinath/Jomsom if the trekkers have limitation of time. From Muktinath after crossing the highest pass known as Throng-La Pass the overland transportation are available if required. Annapurna Circuit Trek is one of the grateful dead and the sweetest trek in the world. It is a great discovery and bold taste for mountain trekking lovers for Trekking in Nepal.

The Annapurna Circuit is also well-known and much tourism as real trek. This trek circles Nepal’s heaven-high Annapurna range, and it's been hailed as the holy grail of trekking since it was first opened to foreigners in the early 1980s. Travel writers and hikers everywhere pour about the trail, even as others discover unknown life-lifters elsewhere. There are treks that are more rugged or more remote, huts that are more deluxe, pilgrimage sites that are more holy, wildlife that's more exotic and even scenery–sacrilege–that's more beautiful. But, any of them cannot step up and swipe the Annapurna's crown, the trekkers’ experience.

FAQ

Frequently Asked Questions for Annapurna Circuit Trek

Anyone who is physically sound can join Annapurna Circuit trek. The trek does not require prior trekking experience. However, we recommend you to do some basic exercises before your Annapurna Circuit trek. If you have any medical condition, you must seek medical advice from your doctor before considering the trek.

Our team representative will be there to greet you outside of Arrival section of Tribhuvan International Airport. He will be displaying Nepal Social and the name card with your name on it. After that, you will be transferred to pre-chosen hotel.

Accommodation in Kathmandu depends on your preference and budget. Normally, we offer three-star hotel services in our itinerary, but we can accommodate you according to your choice as you can choose from a budget hotel to luxurious five-star services.

However, you will have to forget the luxuries of the city during the trek as you will be staying in teahouses/lodges with basic facilities. The teahouses/lodges, although small, provide clean sheets and blanket with a cozy mattress. We also offer sleeping bags if required (which needs to be returned after the trip), but it’s always a good idea to carry a personal sleeping bag. We provide you with single and double rooms depending on the availability and prior booking. It is quite difficult to get a single room during the peak season; therefore, we usually offer double rooms in our outline itinerary.

While you can choose from a wide range of food in Kathmandu and Pokhara, you will mostly be served local Nepali meals, Daal Bhat, in the teahouses on the upper regions. However, if you have any special food choices, you should let us know beforehand so that we can work on it. Additionally, we can also provide you with cooking staff if that is your preference.

It is best to trek during the spring season from March to May and the autumn season from September to mid-December. It is not recommended to trek in the region during the monsoon season from June to August or during the winter season from mid-December to February.

Weather in the mountains is notoriously difficult to predict. It is, generally, chillingly cold in nights, whereas, the days are warmer. Since you will be trekking in the spring or autumn season, the weather during the day is comfortably dry and warm. The temperature could be as high as 20-degree c to 15-degree c low, during the daytime.

 

Yes, it is absolutely possible to add some more days to your trek. We can customize your trek according to your preferences with additional costs including accommodation, food, guides, and porters.
