Overview

Annapurna Circuit Trek takes you around the Manang and Mustang region. It is rich in nature and culture. It is the most popular trekking region of Nepal. Many tourists prefer this trek to the Everest Base Camp Trek and Manaslu Circuit Trek. It has been estimated that nearly one-third of the trekkers coming to Nepal visit to do the Annapurna Round Trek.

You can experience the wonderful combination of Himalayan views and amazing landscapes. This region is named after the Annapurna Massif. Annapurna I (8,091 m) is the tenth-highest peak in the world.

The Annapurna Circuit trail is about 128 miles long. In this trek, you have the majestic views of the Dhaulagiri Massif, Tukuche Peak (6,920 m), Gangapurna Peak (7,454 m), and so on.

Besides the Himalayan view, trekking around Annapurna rewards you with a unique lifestyle, culture, and tradition. The Gurung, Magar, Thakali, and other mixed communities have lived in this beautiful region since immemorial.

The ancient monasteries, mani walls, and chortens decorated with prayer flags are the ornaments of the Annapurna Circuit trek. Typical Thakali Cuisine has been an international brand of Nepali food. The uniqueness of this dish is that Nepali Daal Bhaat is served with the fermented green vegetable pickle it.

The trials of this trek run through the Annapurna Conservation Area Project (ACAP). A large variety of birds and animals are seen while walking along the pine, oak, fir, and rhododendron forests.

Muktinath Temple is another must-visit site during this trek. It is a popular pilgrimage site for both the Hindus and Buddhists. Every year, thousands of pilgrims from India and Nepal visit this shrine. The natural flame continuously burning with the help of natural gas is just amazing.

Annapurna Circuit Trek Map

Annapurna Circuit Trek starts after visiting the UNESCO World Heritage Sites of Kathmandu. Then, it takes you around the Marsyangdi River Valley, Manang Valley, and Kali Gandaki Valley.

Walking along the quiet trails and enjoying the mountain peaks of the Northern Himalayas gives you a different experience of Nepal. The flora and fauna of Annapurna Conservation Area are the other alluring factors that attract national and international trekkers.

Formally, you begin the trek from Syange and then move ahead towards Dharapani, Chame, Pisang, and Manang. After exploring the beautiful Manang Valley, you move further to Letdar and Thorung Phedi.

By crossing the highest place of this trek, Thorung La Phedi (5,416 m), you trek to Muktinath. You visit the Muktinath Temple and continue going towards Jomsom, the administrative headquarters of Mustang.

The next morning, you catch a flight to Pokhara in the morning. You can spend this day to visit the most tourist places of the Lake City Pokhara. Or you can drive to Kathmandu along the Prithvi Highway. Alternatively, you can also fly back to Kathmandu in about 25 minutes.

Around Annapurna Trek Itinerary

Annapurna Circuit trek itinerary ranges from 1 day to 22 days. You may wonder how you can do the Annapurna Circuit Helicopter tour without landing just in a couple of hours. Nepal Trekking Routes has designed 15 days package. You can also add up to the Nepal trekking package and extend the duration if you have enough time to spend in Nepal.

Travelers can cut short the proposed itinerary or extend this to other regions as well. You can extend this trip to the Ghorepani Poon hill trek, Ghandruk trek, Annapurna Base Camp trek, Upper Mustang Trek, etc. To customize the trekking packages, contact us via email, phone call, WhatsApp or online booking system.

Annapurna Circuit Trek Cost

The cost of a Nepal trekking package depends upon many factors like the duration, facilities you want, and the permits you need to buy. You can have the aerial view of Annapurna Circuit just in a couple of hours. For this, you have to go Annapurna Circuit Helicopter tour without landing.

The trek duration ranges from 1 day to 22 days. This means the cost of a 1-day package is different from that of 22 days. Likewise, from Jomsom, you can either fly to Pokhara or drive on a private jeep or local bus. So, the mode of transportation also plays a vital role in determining the cost of this trek.

There are from basic to good hotels and lodges on the route of the Annapurna Circuit Trek. The cost of basic food and accommodation differs from that of quality services.

You can fix the Annapurna Circuit Trek cost by consulting with Nepal Trekking Routes. Therefore, contact us for the details either through email, phone calls, WhatsApp, or system booking services.

 Annapurna Round Trek Solo

As there has been no restricted area to include in this trekking route, you can do the Annapurna Circuit trek solo. Solo trekking to Annapurna Circuit is also possible as it is completely a teahouse trekking. The trails of this region are in good condition because they are frequently traversed by national and international trekkers.

But, we highly recommend you hire a professional trekking guide and a porter to cover the distance. As you have to go across a 5,416-meter pass, it is challenging as well. You may not be able to find the right and safe trekking trail as well.

If you hire a registered trekking guide, he will help you in case of altitude sickness and loss of the right trekking trail. More importantly, he gives you more details about the heritage sites you come across or see en route.

For an organized trek to Annapurna Circuit, book via a local tour operator located in Kathmandu or Pokhara. Nepal Trekking Routes is the one having 100% success history records.

An itinerary serves as a general outline of your travel plan. It is flexible and can be adjusted according to your interests and preferences in consultation with your trekking guide.

Yes, it is possible to do the Annapurna Circuit trek during the monsoon season, which typically occurs from June to August. However, trekking during the monsoon season comes with some challenges. The weather can be unpredictable, with frequent rainfall and cloudy conditions. The trails may become muddy and slippery, and there is a higher risk of landslides in certain sections.

While trekking in the monsoon season can offer lush green landscapes and fewer crowds, it is essential to be prepared for rain and unfavorable weather conditions. It's advisable to pack appropriate rain gear, waterproof your belongings, and be cautious of the trail conditions. Additionally, some sections of the trail, such as the Thorong La Pass, may experience temporary closures or be more challenging due to snow or weather-related issues. It's important to stay updated on weather conditions and follow the guidance of local authorities and experienced guides.

Vegetarian options are widely available, and many teahouses cater to vegetarian diets. You can also find vegan and gluten-free options, although the variety may be more limited.
