Annapurna Circuit Trek

Covers Annapurna Himalayan Range

Annapurna Circuit Trek

US$1425

per person

The 300km Annapurna Circuit Trek does not limit only to Himalayan experience but provides the view of huge paddy fields, green forests and barren landscapes, all of which is an educational as well as inspiring experience.

Whichever route you choose or schedule you to follow, Annapurna Circuit trek is sure to leave you with lifetime memories of euphoria. Throughout the trek, you fear of tripping over as you can’t keep your eyes off the peaks and glaciers that shine brighter than the dazzling sun.

The Annapurna circuit trek can be completed by hiking throughout (starting from Nayapul) or taking a jeep from Jomsom. Relishing in the plush forest and mixing up with the Gurung and Thakali people, the trek lets you learn the culture of the Buddhist people and the slow leisure walk through Dana, Marpha, Kagbeni, etc helps you acclimatize to face the highest point of the trek.

The Thorong La pass (5416m), the highest point is the main perk of the Annapurna Circuit Trek which gives you a 360-degree view of the peaceful and dazzling view. The 300km Annapurna Circuit Trek does not limit only to Himalayan experience but provides the view of huge paddy fields, green forests, and barren landscapes, all of which are an educational as well as inspiring experiences.

Passing through the trade route of India Nepal and Tibet and following the deepest valley of the Earth through Kali Gandaki River, the Manang valley and its road further await your admiration; there lies the charismatic edges of Nilgiri and the peak of Dhaulagiri, at 26,795 feet, which is also the seventh-tallest in the world. Though the trek is wild and rural without much access to modern facilities, foreign-styled restaurants, and hospitable service is enough to make you forget the strenuous walk through the route. The hike down to places like Pisang, Yak Kharka, Chame, Bahudanda, Besishahar, etc is a moment to share as you meet yak and sheepherders along the way.

The Annapurna Circuit Trek can be a short trip if you decide to take a jeep but the same can be a long strenuous walk if not; no choice withholds you from gathering the awesome experiences that the trek provides
