Annapurna Circuit Trek

Embark on an unforgettable journey through the breathtaking landscapes of the Annapurna Circuit Trek. Spanning 16 days, this epic adventure takes you through a diverse range of environments, from lush subtropical valleys to high-altitude desert plateaus, offering an unparalleled experience of the Himalayas.


The Annapurna Circuit is renowned for its stunning scenery, diverse culture, and challenging yet rewarding trekking trails. As you traverse ancient trade routes and mountain passes, you'll be surrounded by towering peaks, including Annapurna II (7,937m), Manaslu (8,163m), and Dhaulagiri (8,167m), among others.


The journey begins in the vibrant city of Kathmandu, where you'll soak in the rich cultural heritage of Nepal before heading to the trailhead in Besisahar. From there, the trek takes you through picturesque villages inhabited by diverse ethnic groups, including Gurungs, Thakalis, and Manangis, each with their own unique traditions and customs.


As you ascend into the mountains, you'll pass through lush forests of rhododendron and oak, cross roaring rivers on suspension bridges, and marvel at cascading waterfalls and terraced fields clinging to steep hillsides. Along the way, you'll have the opportunity to visit ancient monasteries, Buddhist stupas, and traditional tea houses, gaining insight into the spiritual and cultural heritage of the region.


The highlight of the trek is crossing the Thorong La Pass (5,416m), one of the highest mountain passes in the world. The ascent is challenging but immensely rewarding, offering breathtaking views of the surrounding peaks and valleys stretching out as far as the eye can see.


From the pass, the trail descends into the arid landscapes of the Mustang region, where you'll encounter dramatic cliffs, barren hills, and ancient cave dwellings. Finally, the trek concludes in the picturesque village of Nayapul, where you'll bid farewell to the mountains before returning to Kathmandu for a well-deserved rest.


The Annapurna Circuit Trek is a once-in-a-lifetime adventure that will leave you with memories to last a lifetime. Join us as we journey through some of the most spectacular landscapes on earth and experience the magic of the Himalayas in all its glory.
