Overview

The Annapurna Region is the most popular and highly diverse trekking region in Nepal. Annapurna circuit trek route takes you around the whole Annapurna massifs along with crossing the highest pass at Thorung La (5,416 m), strolling through the Kaligandaki gorge, deepest gorge of the world, witness the sunrise from Poonhill over the Himalayas, and a major pilgrimage site Muktinath temple.

The trek is not too demanding, suitable for everyone, and is fun that stretches to the historic Mustang district. Rather than the other remote trekking area of Nepal, you can spend nights in convenient lodges where food is good and fresh here.

We get the chance to learn about the Tibetan way of life, which is prevalent in the Mustang valleys. We also have a modest chance of witnessing a snow leopard as well as blue sheep in Yak Kharka.

Due to the construction of roads, the western part of the trek route is accessible to vehicles. Over the years, it has changed the typical nature of this trek. It is still a beautiful trek which can be accomplished in a distinct way. It can be a customised short 9-day trek to a maximum of a month-long journey. 

After a picturesque drive from Kathmandu, the trek to Annapurna Circuit begins in Bhulbhule and follows the Marsyangdi River valley to Jagat, Dharapani, Chame, and Pisang.

We walk to Manang, where we will rest and acclimate before climbing the Thorung La pass. We proceed on the trail from Manang to Yak Kharka. We climb up to Thorong Phedi the next day. Also, between Thorong Phedi and Thorong La Pass (5,416 m/17,769 ft). We descend to Muktinath after traveling across the Thorong La pass, which is a sacred Hindu and Buddhist pilgrimage site.

We then drive from Muktinath to Tatopani and spend the night there. The next day, we drive to Ghorepani, Poon Hill and Berithanti before returning to Kathmandu via Pokhara.

This Annapurna circuit trip is for trekkers who want to go on a more challenging tour in Nepal's Himalayas and see the Annapurna circuit's diverse scenery, topography, and climate zones. The ideal seasons to trek the Annapurna Circuit are in the spring and fall season. It's only in the winter that there are problems, as the Thorung La pass is frequently closed due to heavy snowfall.

Teahouses are provided throughout the Annapurna Circuit, as like other Nepalese treks and all meals, snacks, and water can easily be purchased along the way.
