Why is Annapurna Circuit Trek's landscape considered unique?

The Annapurna circuit trek starts in a verdant subtropical zone, where you can hear the rushing river far away even though you can't see it. The weather is pleasant as you hike by numerous terraced fields and farms. You'll also come across numerous Himalayan villages built beautifully in a traditional style. After that, you make your way up the Marsyangdi River valley, passing through deciduous forests and cooler temperatures. The forests you hike through inhabit rich sub-tropical vegetation, including Rhododendron, birch, oak, and juniper trees. You might as well encounter some wildlife in the Annapurna Conservation.

After a few days, you'll begin to have clear views of the Annapurna ranges, which include Annapurna I (8,091 m), the region's highest peak and the world's tenth-highest peak. Then you ascend above the tree line to bare slopes and dismal ravines surrounded by snowy peaks. The air is thin, and the wind is frequently strong in the desert-like Himalayan terrain inhabited by Manangis. Thorong La, a mountain pass 5,416 meters above sea level where the Khatung Kang and Yakawa Kang mountains meet, is the highest point of the Annapurna Circuit Trek.

From Thorung La Pass, you'll see the incredible desert-like Himalayan slopes with unique purplish shade. The trek mostly descends from here on. You'll pass down the alpine terrain to lush sub-tropical vegetation before getting back to the beautiful valley of Lakes, Pokhara.

    ItineraryTrip day to day detail itinerary

    As soon as you arrive at Tribhuvan International Airport in Kathmandu, our airport facilitator will meet you at the exit. They will drive you to a three-star hotel in Thamel, one of Kathmandu's most popular tourist destinations, which is lined with lodging options, eateries, gift stores, cafes, pubs, and bars. Due to its central location within the city, this place is a favorite among tourists and hikers.

    You may unwind or take a tour of the area after checking into your accommodation. Now is a great time to get any trekking gear you may require. Everything from handicrafts to trekking and climbing gear is available in stores on Thamel's streets. Make sure you get enough sleep and recover from your jet lag so you're ready for the adventure the very next day.

    • Max. Altitude: 1,350m/4,429ft
    • Accommodation: 3 Star Hotel

    At approximately seven in the morning, your trek guide will pick you up from the hotel and transport you to the bus terminal where you will board a bus to Besisahar. The timing may differ according to the bus schedule. Make sure you get ready and have breakfast before the scheduled time in the morning. Traveling by bus along the Kathmandu-Pokhara Highway to Dumre is a comfortable experience. After Dumre, the path gets exciting. To arrive at Besisahar, you drive beside the Marshyangdi River on a paved off-road route. After reaching Besisahar, you take a local jeep to Chamje, where you will spend the night at a guest house.

    • Elevation Gain: 510m/1,673ft
    • Accommodation: Mountain Lodge

    After a hearty breakfast at the guest home, we head out on our first hiking day of the Classic Annapurna Circuit Trek. The trail begins with a descent to the river, crossing it on a suspension bridge. Then it's up a steep slope up to Sattale (1550 m). We continue climbing up a meandering trail to a hill's summit, from where you can see the flat surface of Tal (1700 m).

    The valley narrows and the path becomes more winding after Tal. In certain places, the trail looks as though it has been chiseled out of the rock. Worry not, our experienced trekking guides will keep you safe. We have to travel past the small settlement of Karte (1900 m) along the cliffs to reach Dharapani. After that, the trail drops back down to the river and over another suspension bridge. We spend the night at a mountain lodge in Dharapani.

    • Max. Altitude: 1,960m/6,430ft
    • Meals: Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner
    • Elevation Gain: 550m/1,804ft
    • Accommodation: Mountain Lodge
    • Walking Hours: 5-6 hours
    • Walking Distance: 14km/8.7mi

    From Dharapani, we start the hike after breakfast, walking toward a little field of grass. The Marsyangdi River drifts left, revealing Annapurna II in the distance. When you get to Bagarchhap, a Bhote village next to a Buddhist temple, you can see prayer flags waving in the breeze flirtatiously. We continue our trek crossing Danaque (2210 m) and hiking up through trees of oak and pine. After navigating a narrow wooden bridge and a treacherous slope, we come to the settlement of Timang at the base of Lamjung Himal. From here, the trail is somewhat flat up until we get to Chame, where we spend the night at a tea house.

    • Max. Altitude: 2,710m/8,891ft
    • Meals: Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner
    • Elevation Gain: 750m/2,461ft
    • Accommodation: Mountain Lodge
    • Walking Hours: 6-7 hours
    • Walking Distance: 19km/11.8mi

    Before setting out on our trek to Pisang, we enjoy a great breakfast at the overnight tea house. The sight of Lamjung Himal (6893m), glistening in the morning light while having breakfast, will cheer you up. As we walk up the valley through a large apple orchard, the mountain vanishes.

    With each step on the route to Bhratang (2950m), the valley rises sharply. After a short climb from Bhratang, we arrive at a region scattered with rocks. We now traverse a wooden bridge and continue on a challenging, winding track. As we hike through a pine forest, the valley's V-shape gradually becomes a U-shape, offering an incredible view. We, then, reach the small community of Pisang, which is distinguished by a long Mani Wall. It is where we spend the night after a delicious dinner.

    • Max. Altitude: 3,300m/10,827ft
    • Meals: Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner
    • Elevation Gain: 590m/1,935ft
    • Accommodation: Mountain Lodge
    • Walking Hours: 5-6 hours
    • Walking Distance: 15km/9.3mi

    We begin the day with a climb up a tall hill from Pisang that offers breathtaking views of Tilicho Peak (7145 m) and the Manang River. After passing Manang's airport at Humde (3320 m), we get to a level area where Annapurna III's northeast face looms majestically above us. One may also see Annapurna IV (7525 m) from the expansive, plain Sabje Khola Valley.

    After this, we walk a little distance over a wooden bridge to the tiny settlement of Mungji, situated across the Marsyangdi River. Here, you can witness the crops cultivated by the locals in the fields on either side of the trail. Next, we see the town of Braga, encircled by the magnificent monastery, numerous enormous chortens, and the Mani walls. After a strenuous uphill hike from Braga, we arrive in Manang. We settle down at a tea house where we’re going to stay for the next two nights.

    • Max. Altitude: 3,540m/11,614ft
    • Meals: Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner
    • Elevation Gain: 240m/787ft
    • Accommodation: Mountain Lodge
    • Walking Hours: 6-7 hours
    • Walking Distance: 16km/9.9mi

    As we’re now trekking above 3000 meters, it is crucial to fully acclimate before crossing over the Thorung La Pass (5416 m). Manang offers a wide range of optional day hikes, making it an excellent destination for acclimatization. One of the options is to hike across a river to witness a massive icefall descending from the Annapurnas. Another is ascending well above the settlement to have a panoramic view of the Manang Valley and the Annapurna mountain. You can also go to Ganagapurna Glacier Lake to add some unusual adventures to your rest day. Once you’re done with the day hike, it is recommended to visit the Manang aid station operated by the Himalayan Rescue Association [HRA] in Manang village itself.

    • Max. Altitude: 3,540m/11,614ft
    • Meals: Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner
    • Accommodation: Mountain Lodge

    On day 8 of our Annapurna Circuit Trek, we wake up in Manang ready to take on Thorung La Pass after a well-earned day of relaxation. However, we have a few more days till we steadily get to Thorung La. So, today’s destination is going to be Yak Kharka.

    The trail passes through the hamlet of Gunsang (3960 m), while progressively ascending from Manang to Yak Kharka. Throughout the day, as we hike, we will take in the breathtaking views of the mountains all around us. Although it seems like a short climb, the altitude will tire us. Yak Kharka is situated at an even higher elevation of 4050 meters, making breathing difficult. Thus, we go cautiously and gently. After we reach Yak Kharka, we rest at a tea house where we also spend the night.

    • Max. Altitude: 4,110m/13,484ft
    • Meals: Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner
    • Elevation Gain: 570m/1,870ft
    • Accommodation: Mountain Lodge
    • Walking Hours: 4-5 hours
    • Walking Distance: 10km/6.2mi

    Following a hearty breakfast in Yak Kharka, we set out toward Thorung La Pass and reach Thorung Phedi today. The route begins with a moderate climb to a hilltop and then descends to the headwaters of Marsyangdi. Then we cross a hidden wooden bridge. We initially ascend the mountain way on the right side of the Marsyandgi for a while before making our way up a treacherous slope on a narrow trail and eventually descending to Thorung Phedi. At the end of our hiking day, we reach the foot of Thorung La Pass, also known as Thorung Phedi, and spend a comfortable night in a mountain lodge to restore our energy for the next day.

    • Max. Altitude: 4,450m/14,599ft
    • Meals: Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner
    • Elevation Gain: 340m/1,115ft
    • Accommodation: Mountain Lodge
    • Walking Hours: 3-4 hours
    • Walking Distance: 9km/5.6mi

    This is the day we have all been looking forward to. We will traverse Thorung La Pass, the highest point on the Annapurna Circuit at 5416 meters, today. Early in the morning, we set out on our challenging but straightforward trek to Thorang La Pass. After four hours of continuous climbing, we get close to the prayer flags of the well-known Thorung La Pass. 

    As soon as we reach the top of the pass, we are greeted with breathtaking views of the snow-capped peaks at the top of the Kali Gandaki Valley, as well as the brown and purple hills of Mustang. As you stand at the summit of Thorung La Pass, the spectacular surroundings fill you with pride and a sense of success.

    We take a brief break to admire the majestic Himalayas before moving on with our journey. The excruciating 1600-meter descent to Muktinath can give you knee pain, but is rewarding at the same time, because of the alluring view of Dhaulagiri. We finally emerge from the moraines into grassy slopes and have a leisurely hike up to Muktinath via Jhong Khola Valley.

    • Max. Altitude: 5,416m/17,769ft
    • Meals: Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner
    • Elevation Gain: 966m/3,169ft
    • Elevation Loss: 1,966m/6,450ft
    • Accommodation: Mountain Lodge
    • Walking Hours: 7-8 hours
    • Walking Distance: 16km/9.9mi

    Today, you’re going to visit the revered Hindu temple, Muktinath, which also has a religious significance in Buddhism. It is believed that if you take a bath in the holy tapes present at the temple premises, it will wash away your sins. So, we wake up early, freshen up, and head towards the temple to seek blessings. 

    Once we’re done with the temple visit, we get back to our overnight lodge, have breakfast, pack our belongings, and continue on our hiking journey towards Jomsom. Jomsom is one of the most popular tourist destinations in Mustang. It is also where the Upper Mustang Trek begins. In just a few hours we reach the beautiful town of Jomsom. You can try the famous local apple wine here.

    • Max. Altitude: 2,720m/8,924ft
    • Meals: Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner
    • Elevation Loss: 690m/2,264ft
    • Accommodation: Mountain Lodge
    • Walking Hours: 5-6 hours
    • Walking Distance: 15km/9.3mi

    As there are roadways available, we cover the distance from Jomsom to Tatopani in a jeep. We don’t miss anything major by taking the road as the walking trail is just along the Kali Gandaki River on the opposite bank of the roadway.

    After breakfast at the overnight lodge at Jomsom, we prepare ourselves for an adventurous jeep ride. The roads are bumpy and that makes the journey fun and scary at the same time. But do not worry, the drivers driving on this route are experienced and reliable. Once you get to Tatopani, you can drop off your belongings at the lodge and head to the hotspring. Tatopani has a hot spring that is supposed to help with pain relief and muscle soreness healing. It can be a relaxing experience after spending more than a week walking in the treacherous terrain of the Annapurna region.

    • Max. Altitude: 2,530m/8,301ft
    • Meals: Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner
    • Elevation Loss: 190m/623ft
    • Accommodation: Mountain Lodge
    • Walking Hours: 7-8 hours
    • Walking Distance: 22km/13.7mi

    Today, we again resume our trek with a hike from Tatopani to Shikha. Once, you’re done with your breakfast at the overnight lodge, you begin on the uphill hike to the beautiful village of Shikha. We first walk on the level path for a while and take a steep ascent to Ghara (1700 m) and then walk along a somewhat level trail until we get to Shikha, where we spend the night at a tea house. Most people rely on farming in this village as it is surrounded by a vast cultivable land. Here, you’ll also find people whose family members serve in the Gurkha army. 

    • Max. Altitude: 1,190m/3,904ft
    • Meals: Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner
    • Elevation Loss: 1,340m/4,396ft
    • Accommodation: Mountain Lodge
    • Walking Hours: 6-7 hours
    • Walking Distance: 20km/12.4mi

    After a delicious breakfast at the guest house in Shikha, we continue on our Annapurna Circuit trail to Ghorepani. Today, we traverse through several small villages such as Phatale and Chitre. It’s mostly a steady ascent from Shikha to Ghorepani. The trail moves through forests in between the villages. As you trek through rhododendron woods and enjoy the magnificent vistas of multiple mountains surrounding you, you may also spot a variety of wildlife and birds. We’ll spend the night at a mountain lodge in Ghorepani today.

    • Max. Altitude: 2,850m/9,350ft
    • Meals: Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner
    • Elevation Gain: 1,660m/5,444ft
    • Accommodation: Mountain Lodge
    • Walking Hours: 6-7 hours
    • Walking Distance: 18km/11.2mi

    The trail brings us to yet another trek highlight. We will be hiking to Poon Hill early today, which is well-known for its breathtaking Himalayan sunrises. We trek for an hour and a half before daybreak to the top of Poon Hill, a fantastic viewpoint with a breathtaking sunrise against the surrounding mountains and the Annapurna range. The warm, golden sunlight bouncing off the snow-capped Annapurna range, Machhapuchre Peak, and Dhaulagiri Peak will captivate you for sure.

    After descending from Poonhill, we have breakfast at the Ghorepani Lodge and get ready to depart. It's the last day of hiking as well. We stroll through a thick forest and cross a tiny creek while listening to the melodies of the birds before arriving at Ulleri, another Magar village. After a bit on a steep downhill trail, we arrive at Tikhe Dhunga. From there, it's a short hike past a few suspension bridges to Hile.

    In Hile, we get into a local jeep that will take us to Pokhara in two hours. You are welcome to take an evening stroll along the lakeside once you have settled into your Pokhara hotel. After a few cocktails to commemorate finishing the hike, spend the night at a comfortable hotel room in Pokhara.

    • Max. Altitude: 2180m/7217ft

    You will have an early breakfast at your Pokhara hotel and then board a luxury tourist bus to Kathmandu at around 7/8 AM. You get to witness the tumbling rivers, terraced farms, and verdant rural beauty as you pass through several tiny villages on the way. The six or seven-hour bus ride will be an amazing experience for you to observe the beautiful Nepalese countryside. 

    Once you arrive in kathmandu, you will be dropped off at your hotel in Thamel. After settling in at your Thamel hotel, unwind for a while and pick up some souvenirs to give to your family and friends back home. Join us for your farewell dinner on your last night in Kathmandu.

    Major Attractions of the Annapurna Circuit Trek

    Manang, the crown jewel of the Annapurna Circuit

    Manang is one of the most famous places in Nepal and also the most beautiful village on the trek. Manang itself has numerous things to do, from a short hike to nearby quaint villages to thrilling mountain biking. You can visit Milarepa's Cave, Braga Village, and Bhojo Gompa, the most significant spots near Manang. Besides this, you can see stunning landscape views of the snow-clad mountains from Manang, forming a crown over the village.

    Many visitors like spending a few days in Manang, which is known for its breathtaking grandeur. The gurgling of the flowing river can be heard throughout this charming village as the Marsyangdi River nestles this tiny hamlet. This river goes towards Annapurna Mountain's eastern side. The population of this little village in Nepal's Gandaki province is about 6500.

    Challenging Thorong La Pass

    Damodar Himal is the home to Thorong La Pass. It is located in central Nepal, to the north of the Annapurna Himal (mountain). The pass is lodged between the peaks of Khatung Kang and Yakwa. It rises 5,416 meters above sea level, which is also the Annapurna circuit trek's highest point. It is recognized as the most difficult hike in the Annapurna region for obvious reasons. You have to trek on a steep, rugged trail for hours before sunrise to reach the top of the pass.

    Trekking to the Thorong La Pass requires not only effort and stamina but also patience. You'll feel as though the pass is only around the corner, and you'll summon all your strength to claim triumph, but when you get there, it's simply another slope to a ridge. However, when you reach the highest point after all of your perseverance and effort, you will feel as if your patience and effort were rewarded. The view you see is simply stunning, and the sense of accomplishment and success that comes with reaching the top is something you should experience for yourself. You'll feel like an ultimate champion with all the emotions rushing in your soul and spirit.

    Muktinath Temple

    Muktinath Temple is one of the holiest pilgrimage sites of Hindus and Buddhists, situated at the foothill of Thorong La Pass. Known as one of the highest temples in the world (3,800 m), Muktinath is considered Mukti Kshetra (place of liberation). As per legends visiting Muktinath Temple will wash off all your sins and bless you with good luck. Thousands of pilgrims come here from different parts of Nepal and India to take a bath in the pond & the tap present on the temple premises.

    The temple is one of the oldest temples in Nepal's Himalayan region. The shrine is one of the eight sacred locations known as Swayam Vyakta Kshetras (the other seven being Srirangam, Srimushnam, Tirupati, Naimsharanya, Pushkar, and Badrinath). It is one of the 108 Divya Desam holy locations dedicated to Lord Vishnu's devotion. Similarly, it is one of the 51 Shakti Pithas devoted to Lord Shiva's wife, Goddess Sati (Shakti).

    Taste Delicious Apples in Marpha

    Marpha is known for its multi-story old stone structures built by hand without the use of mud or cement, as well as the delicious apples cultivated in the lush valley that runs between the Nilgiri and Dhaulagiri Himalayan foothills. You'll want to stay here more than one night because this gorgeous Thakali settlement is so appealing. The lovely village's character is defined by its stoned pavements and whitewashed buildings. This village is quite tranquil! Apples are undoubtedly the village's stars. The handmade apple cider and delectable freshly baked apple pies are the best of the bunch. Have you already felt your mouth watering? Marpha is unquestionably one of the most exclusive villages on the Annapurna Circuit.

    Hot Spring in Tatopani

    The Tato Pani natural hot spring is the highlight of the Annapurna Region. On the journey back to Pokhara, many trekkers choose this route just for the hot spring. Bathing in a natural hot spring can help you recover from the tension and exhaustion of your walk. Similarly, spring water is said to have a special healing capacity for easing pains and aches. The spiritual importance of hot springs cannot be overstated. Thus, it is said that swimming in a hot spring spiritually purifies the soul. You must, however, spend a few additional dollars.

    Beautiful Ghorepani Village

    Ghorepani village, at roughly 2760 meters above sea level, boasts breathtaking views of Nepal's Himalayan terrain. In Ghorepani, hill trekking is quite popular. Poon Hill is the most excellent hill to hike from Ghorepani. The oak forest, home to a variety of birds as well as verdant hills and patchwork valleys, will enchant your eyes. Almost every vantage point provides a tempting glimpse. People from the Gurung and Magar communities live in this region. You will have the opportunity to connect with them and witness their daily routine.

    Stunning Sunrise from Poon Hill View Point

    Poon Hill is one of the Annapurna region's most well-known landmarks. Trekkers frequently ascend to Poon Hill, located immediately above Ghorepani Village, for a short stroll. Most trekkers leave the village of Ghorepani early in the morning to trek to Poon Hill to enjoy the sunrise. The western Himalayan Mountains, as well as a tempting sunrise and sunset, can be seen from here.

    The vistas of Annapurna and Dhaulagiri from Poon Hill are incredible, and the hour-long trek up stone stairs through a rhododendron forest is well worth the effort! Poon Hill may get quite crowded, especially during the peak hiking seasons of spring and autumn. As you take in the scenery, expect to be surrounded by hundreds of other hikers. The enticing hike to Poon Hill will leave you speechless!

    Annapurna Circuit Trek Itinerary

    The Annapurna Circuit Trek starts with a drive to Besishar by local bus, and take a local jeep to Chamje and overnight stay. The consecutive next days mean ascending to Chamje, Dharapani, Chame, villages of Pisang and finally Manang. A newly constructed roadway means you can cut your trek for a few days and get a direct jeep until Chamje or Chame if that is what you want. Acclimatization day at Manang would help you with the increasing altitude. The next day, you trek to Yak Kharka, followed by Thorong Phedi via Thorong La Pass.

    After that, the trekking trail descends to Muktinath and then Jomsom where you can spend the night and enjoy! The next day you will be heading towards Kalopani followed by Tatopani, with an overnight stay in each of these villages. After Tatopani comes Ghorepani and then Poon Hill. From Poon Hill, you hike until Nayapul and drive to Pokhara. This way you can complete your Round Annapurna Trek.

    FAQsAnnapurna Circuit Trek - 17 Days frequently asked questions
    • You will experience everything from a cultural exposition to natural adventures and the best views of the unique highlands to high altitude passes. The Annapurna Circuit is the best trekking in Nepal with an array of multiple and varied experiences.

      The takes you through surreal, desert-like vistas and into the Himalayan foothills. During each day's trip, you will encounter something new and exciting. As a result, many trekkers opt to do this trek to experience all of the diversity it has to offer.

      You will also be crossing the challenging Thorang La Pass and onto the ancient kingdom of Mustang. The trek is a mix of everything and has many things for you to explore and experience.

    • Anyone, regardless of fitness, can be affected by altitude sickness. From 2500m (8200ft) above sea level, symptoms can be felt. Trekking the Himalayas means you are trekking at a high altitude. However, it is impossible to foresee how your body will react to trail conditions and changes in oxygen levels. While every precaution is taken, it is critical to stay hydrated, take it slowly, and report any symptoms to your group leader.

    • For your personal expenses, you'll need to bring cash with you on the trail. Your itinerary and trip notes will outline the tour's highlights and give you a basic idea of the costs you'll need to budget for. This is a crucial piece of advice for hikers on the Annapurna Circuit. If you run out of money on the trek, you won't be able to get cash until you reach Jomsom after passing via Thorong La Pass. ATMs can only be located in cities like Kathmandu, Pokhara, Jomsom, and Beshisahar, so plan ahead for your trek.

    • In the west of Kathmandu sits the Annapurna Himalayan range. The Annapurna region is a popular trekking destination for both international and domestic tourists in Nepal. This is the most popular trek region among the others.

    • You can drive to Manang, but you will be driving at 3440 meters above sea level, which may cause altitude sickness.

    • The typical trekking route runs from Bhulbhule to Nayapul. This is the longer route, but it allows you to acclimate and experience the Annapurna Region's different scenery and temperature zones, as well as its rich cultural diversity.

      If you just have a limited amount of time, there are alternative ways to cut the journey short. Although the journey begins at Bhulbhule, you can drive up to Chame and cut your trek time by 2 to 3 days. You can either trek down to Jomsom and fly to Pokhara or take a local jeep or bus to Pokhara after crossing the Thorong La pass.

    • In the case of the Annapurna circuit trek, the trekking hour normally depends on the path you take; you'll need to navigate for about 4 to 8 hours. The longest day of this expedition is crossing the Thorong La pass. There are height restrictions, and you can only ascend to a maximum of 600 meters per day.

    • For your Nepal trek, you should have comprehensive travel insurance that covers your emergency evacuation and medical issues. Make certain that your travel insurance covers you at 5,416 meters above sea level, as this is the highest point of the Annapurna circuit trek. You can purchase an insurance package that could cover you if you want emergency assistance from Annapurna's mountain.

    • Nepal is one of the friendliest nations to visit in the world. In Nepal, solo female travelers are also safe. We will pass through several traditional villages on our Annapurna circuit trek, and they are somewhat superstitious, therefore it is recommended that you wear modest clothing and be kind to the locals. If you're a single woman visiting a city, don't wander around alone after 11 p.m. Next, bring a guide with you on your Annapurna trek; he will keep an eye out for you and act as your guard, making you feel safer while trekking.

    • The majority of the trekking trail offers the opportunity to purchase a bottle of water. Because plastic bottles are prohibited in some regions, you must purchase boiled filter water that is safe to drink and fill your personal water bottles with it. During the Annapurna trek, you can drink water from the taps and cleanse it with water purifying tablets.

    • Throughout the year, the Annapurna region is subjected to a wide range of weather conditions. The spring season (March-May) is warm, with temperatures ranging from 17 to 20 degrees Celsius (63–68 degrees Fahrenheit) throughout the day and cooler nights and early mornings. From June to August, the summer, or monsoon, brings torrential rains, thundershowers, and humid days with temperatures ranging from 20 to 25°C (68-77°F). The optimum time to trek to Thorang La Pass is in the autumn (September–November), when the weather is more steady and predictable than in other seasons.

    • Even in the winter (December to February), the Annapurna trek is possible, albeit the traditional hiking paths up to Thorang La Pass may change if there is enough snowfall due to the risk of an avalanche. Despite the fact that the weather is magnificent in the winter, temperatures are likely to fall below freezing. In order to witness Annapurna's spectacular beauty in the winter, visitors must be well-equipped with winter gear and mentally prepared to face the harshest weather conditions.

    • Keep in mind that if you're traveling in a group, a sick individual won't cause you to miss or leave your trip. The remainder of the group can continue on their journey while the sick person is being cared for. If someone gets sick on the trail, your trekking guide will assess the situation and decide whether the sick person should go on or retreat to a lower height and wait for the rest of the group. If the person's condition is critical, an air ambulance will transport him or her to Kathmandu or Pokhara for professional medical care. An Outfitter Nepal member will look after the unwell person while the rest of the group continues on their journey.

    • Wi-Fi will be available at most guesthouses, either for free or for a modest fee. However, because you'll be in the mountains, Wi-Fi may or may not be available on any given day for a variety of reasons, so don't count on it. And, going offline for a spell might be quite good!

    • Depending on where you are located during the trek, you will be accessed accordingly. In certain locations, you are serviced to jeep services. In the event of an emergency, an air ambulance will be dispatched to either Pokhara or Kathmandu, depending on the weather. Following that, you'll be moved to a world-renowned hospital for rehabilitation. Outfitter Nepal's operating personnel will be available 24 hours a day, seven days a week in the event of an emergency during the trek.

    • Annapurna treks are physically hard, and you'll need to be in good shape to get the most out of them. You'll need to be ready for a series of climbs and descending, rough terrain, and potentially long days if you don't prepare properly. There is plenty of rest time, and the days are usually reasonable with only 5-7 hours of trekking; however, depending on your itinerary, you may be on the trail for up to 16 hours. Because routes vary in difficulty, it's crucial to examine your itinerary and trip notes carefully before picking which is best for you.

    • The most difficult trekking counts for a tough time crossing the Thorang La Pass. You have to start quite early in the morning and ascend an altitude of more than 5000m. At altitude as such, you may have a time, particularly when it gets too windy. Other than that, most of the trekking days have more than 6 hours of walking, which you might get habituated to during your weeks’ worth of trekking.

    • The Annapurna Circuit is a famous hiking and trekking destination for millions of trekkers, however camping is uncommon in the region owing to unanticipated circumstances.

    • The Annapurna Circuit is a safe route for solo trekkers, including women. Thousands of trekkers pass through Nepali villages every year, and many of them are exceedingly warm and hospitable to hikers. It's also simple to meet other solo hikers and form a small group of companions.

      If you're trekking solo, keep track of where people are ahead of you or behind you so you don't get lost. Red and white stripes demarcate the trails. Wait until another trekker or group of trekkers comes along if there appears to be a fork in the path and you're not sure which trail to take. Locals walking between villages may also be able to direct you on the right path.

    • Spend one extra night, or a 'rest day,' around the villages of Manang and Bhraka to avoid severe altitude sickness while trekking the Annapurna Circuit. The communities are just over 3000 meters above sea level, and staying here allows your body to acclimate to the high altitude.

      Several side treks, such as a trek up to the Ice Lake or a visit to a huge monastery, can be explored on this rest day. Manang village is also the starting point for the side trip to Tilicho Lake. Only sleep roughly 500 meters higher than where you slept the night before. Although it is beneficial to acclimate by hiking to high altitudes (trek high), you must descend to no more than 500 meters above your last stop to spend the night (sleep low).

    • This suggestion for trekking the Annapurna Circuit applies to any location where the temperature drops dramatically at night. Your electronics (phone, portable battery, GoPro, etc.) will keep warm and charged if you sleep with them in your sleeping bag.

      The frigid temperatures will likely deplete the batteries of your electronics if they spend the night anywhere in the room. Keep electronics in your sleeping bag at night to avoid worry and frustration!

    • The Annapurna Circuit trek is both cheaper and less touristy than the Everest Base Camp. The most common way to get to the Everest region is via plane (US$ 380 round-trip from Kathmandu), and costs for items like food, water, and charging electronics are 2-3 times higher.

      The scenery throughout the Annapurna Circuit is also much more varied, ranging from deep green valleys and ice blue rivers to enormous glacial plains and magnificent mountains. The Everest Area hosts colorful communities, notably the lovely Namche Bazaar, and large, dangerous mountains, but the Annapurna Circuit offers a greater range of scenery.

    • If you are a solo traveller who must trek with a group, even the prospect of following the group and your pre-planned itinerary can be intimidating. Going alone, on the other hand, allows you to go according to your own schedule.

      Traveling in a group, on the other hand, provides greater safety and security. A friendly crew is constantly present, and a local, well-trained guide provides up-to-date information and occasionally cracks jokes to make the tour more enjoyable. In a nutshell, each has its advantages.

    • Consider this scenario: you're eating your meal next to the fire, and you've also played a few hands of cards with a friend before retiring to your bed. You wake up at 2 a.m. with diarrhoea and need to go to the bathroom every 2 minutes. So, if you haven't brought Pepto-Bismol with you, the chances of you completing your journey are slim.

      You could also have a cold, a fever, a headache, a stomachache, and so on. If you don't bring a medical kit, you'll have to call it a day on your trek. Because the odds of having altitude sickness are particularly high at higher elevations, make sure you carry Acetazolamide with you (but with a proper prescription!).

      Long hikes in those boots may create blisters, necessitating the usage of bandages and blister plasters. You might also require water purification pills. Scratches and wounds require antibacterial cream as well. For allergic responses, antihistamine pills are used. Motion sickness remedies include anti-nausea medications, as well as paracetamol or ibuprofen for fever and discomfort treatment. Finally, having some toilet paper with you will come in handy, and you will thank yourself later for having brought it with you. Thus, you should take precautions.

    • Altitude sickness has affected the majority of Nepal's high-altitude treks. Although there are no major risks, our experienced trek guides and trip planners have tried and tested the following ways to reduce high altitude sickness on the circuit trek:

      • Ascend slowly with lots of rest and acclimatization.
      • Drink plenty of water at all times.
      • Eat a well-balanced diet and get enough rest throughout the walk.
      • Avoid alcoholic beverages, cigarettes, and tobacco products when hiking.
      • Be mentally prepared and keep your wits about you.
      • Do enough cardiovascular or gym workouts to prepare your body for uphill hikes.
    • The circuit trek does not necessitate the use of crampons. All you'll need for extra support and stability are some nice hiking boots and trekking poles. If you hike in early spring, such as January or February, you may need crampons depending on the amount of the snowfall.

    • Except at some high-altitude spots, cell phone service is accessible on the circuit. Most of the tiny settlements and hiking routes are covered by NCell or NTC networks. However, network coverage may be extremely restricted or non-existent in some areas. WI-FI services, on the other hand, are available in most areas for a modest cost.

      Annapurna Circuit Trek

      I had an excellent trip with Outfitter Nepal! Arjun was amazing with organizing the trek.

      There were no hidden costs or extra fees, and all was ready when I arrived in Nepal (airport pickup, documentation for the trek, bus tickets, etc). I traveled as a single female and felt completely safe with them for the whole time that I was in Nepal.

      I would highly recommend Outfitter Nepal to anyone looking for a safe, well-planned, professional trekking company in Nepal !
