Annapurna Circuit Trek is considered one of the best treks in Nepal’s Annapurna Conservation Area with its massive ranges, deep gorges & high passes.
This trek circumnavigates the Annapurna Massif with a highlight being the high altitude Thorong La Pass (5419m). The trail takes you through the world's deepest gorge - Kali Gandaki Gorge and views of the towering Mt. Annapurna I (8091m), one of the world’s highest mountains, and Mt.Dhaulagiri (8167 m) to the west – the 7th highest mountain in the world.
Trekkers will also get extensive views of the famous Himalayan Mountains, such as Mt. Manaslu and Himal Chuli. This area is rich in culture and traditions of the local people in the Manang district, such as Gurung andThakali, and an opportunity to appreciate their unique stone-walled villages and religious artifacts.
This 12 days budget trek leads you to the heart of the Annapurna Region starting at Besisahar and on to Chame and then to the Pisang Valley. Sherpa Trekking & Expedition’s experienced guide will take you to Manang, Yak Kharka, Thorong Phedi, Thorong La Pass, Muktinath, and ultimately, Jomson.
The following information will give you some idea about what you need to bring for the trek. It is important you do not forget the essential items, as this will determine your comfort and safety on the trek. Equally important is that you do not burden yourself with unnecessary equipment on the trek.
(Note our company guide will carry the medicines and first aid kits during the trek. However, we recommend you bring your personal first-aid kit as well)
You will be accommodated in 3-star hotels in Kathmandu. During the trek, we will be staying at lodges/ teahouses. You may find comfort and better quality teahouses - having attached bathroom at lower levels- until you reach higher elevations, where the accommodation is more basic with bare necessities.
In Kathmandu, your hotel includes breakfast, whereas all meals (breakfast, lunch, and dinner) will be provided during the trek. A staple food of the Manang & Mustang regions is potatoes, oats, buckwheat, Sherpa stew, and Tibetan bread. Sherpa’s’ started farming potatoes when the first seeds were introduced to the region in the early 90s. There is a limited choice of food at higher elevations and except many potato dishes. Potatoes are high in carbohydrates – an excellent source of energy needed at high altitudes.
We use a private car for sightseeing and for the airport to hotel pick and drop off. We use public transportation or local buses during the trek.
This can be a challenging trek where you often have to walk 6-7 hours a day. You don’t need past experience of hiking or trekking but if you have done any kind of trekking activities then it is always a plus! We have met people from all walks of life, shapes, and sizes who have completed the trek. The only difficult part is when altitude sickness strikes and the effect that it can have on your body. Before leaving for Nepal it is good if you can prepare yourself physically by increasing your stamina and oxygen intake.
