Overview

The Annapurna Circuit trek is a dramatic trek around the mighty Annapurna range, a journey that is regarded as one of the top ten walks in the world. The 222-kilometre Annapurna Circuit trek, of the Annapurna massif offers a unique insight into the physical and cultural diversity of Nepal. This Teahouse (lodged) or Camping (Tents Camp) based trek is certainly a ‘classic’ and is enjoyed by trekkers from all round the world. From Kathmandu we travel to the road-head at Besishahar and then start the Annapurna Circuit trekking. The trek follows the Marsyangdi River through rice paddies, terraced fields and Hindu villages under the shadow of the Annapurna and Manaslu ranges. As we ascend, the valley becomes narrower, waterfalls plummet from high above, and the scenery gains a rugged alpine appearance. The trail soon bears west behind the Annapurnas, to enter a Trans-Himalayan region populated by people of Tibetan origin, whose prayer flags, mani walls and monasteries are constant reminders of their Buddhist culture. From Manang we undertake the challenging crossing of the Thorong La (5416m) this is the heart of the Annapurna Circuit trek and links the Marsyangdi and Kali Gandaki Valleys. At the top of the pass we majestic mountain views and then descend to the holy temples at Muktinath, before dropping to the valley floor at Jomsom. We then pass through the world’s deepest gorge cutting between the peaks of Annapurna and Dhaulagiri and on to the hot springs at sub-tropical Tatopani. The final climb of the trek takes us to Ghorepani, where we enjoy more magnificent views of the Annapurnas. The Annapurna Circuit then descends to the road head, where our transport awaits to take us to the beautiful Pokhara to complete this memorable trek and drive Tourist bus / Car or Flight to Kathmandu.
