The Annapurna Circuit Trek is, for a good reason, one of the most popular treks in Nepal’s Annapurna Conservation Area where you will witness enormous snow-covered mountains, deep gorges & high altitude passes.

This trek circles the Annapurna Ranges and crosses the high altitude Thorong La Pass (5419m) – the highest point reached on this trek. The trail leads you through the world's deepest gorge – the Kali Gandaki Gorge, and offers incredible views of the massive Mt. Annapurna I (world’s 10th highest - 8091m) and Mt.Dhaulagiri (8167m) to the west – the 7th highest in the world. Several other well known Himalayan Mountains are visible on the trek including Mt. Manaslu and Himal Chuli.  This area is rich in the culture and traditions of the local Gurung and Thakali castes in the Manang District. We will pass through Brahmin, Chhetri, Tibetan Sherpa and Thakali villages where you will have an opportunity to view their unique cultural differences.

Along the route you will see: Mt. Dhaulagiri, Mt. Annapurna I, Mt. Hiunchuli, Mt. Annapurna II, Mt. Manaslu, Mt. Nilgiri, Lamjung Himal, Tukuche and Tilicho.

This 8 day trek will take you into the very heart of the Annapurna Region and starts at Chame and then to the Pisang Valley. Sherpa Expedition and Trekking experienced guide will take you to the villages of Manang, Yak Kharka, Thorong Phedi, Thorong La Pass, Muktinath and to Pokhara.

Sherpa Expedition and Trekking have an excellent longstanding reputation and will take care of all permits, meals and accommodation on the trek. We will ensure that this the most enjoyable holiday of your life!

This morning we head from Kathmandu to Chame via Besisahar. Along the route you will get glimpses of several snow-capped mountains (Annapurna & Manaslu) as we cross rivers and pass through terraced farmland. We will travel by jeep for around 3 to 4 hours from Besisahar to Chame passing through villages such as: Sange, Bhulbhule, Nagdi, Chamche, Tal, Dharapani, Bagarchhap, Dankya, Timang, Thanchowk, and Chame.

Today we head out on the trail following the Marsyangdi River, with our first stop at Bratang and then on to Chemyau Kharka where there is a memorial to Japanese mountain climber Akira Ochiai. Further on we come to Dhukur Pokhari passing through forests along the way until we arrive at lower Pisang from where we will head to Upper Pisang as a means of acclimatizing. We will then return to Lower Pisang for the night.

Pisang is the start of our trek into the upper Manang region. Today we follow the trail to Braga; a Tibetan village with its distinctive architecture and houses constructed one upon the other. One of Manang’s main features is its Gompa (Buddhist temple), being the largest in the Manang region. Manang is also very popular stopping-off point with trekkers who remain here for a day in order to acclimatize before heading to higher elevations. From Manang we have views of Mt. Chulu and Gangapurna.

Today is set aside to acclimatize, something that is essential before heading to higher elevations. This will limit the possibility of suffering altitude sickness. In order to improve the process we will take a short hike to Bhojo Gumba or Gangapurna Lake. The remainder of your time can be spent exploring this fascinating town.

This morning we head out on the trail to Yak Kharka, beginning with a climb through snow covered forests of juniper. The trail is steep until we arrive at Ghustang. The remainder of this trail is relatively easy as we head to Yak Kharka, and along the way enjoy views of Annapurna II, Gangapurna, and Tilicho.

This morning we head out on a short 1 hour trek to Ledar and then on to Thorong Phedi. Thorong Phedi is at the base of Thorong Himal. We will either spend the night here or move on to High Camp, depending on the weather conditions. Being at High Camp makes it a little easier to reach Thorong La Pass tomorrow.

Today promises to be full of excitement as we head to one of the world’s highest passes – Thorong La Pass. It is going to be a tough day, firstly because of the altitude and secondly because we have to trek for 4 to 5 hours. On the pass you will have stunning views of many 6000m plus peaks. You will also have awesome views as you gaze down to the Kali Gandaki Valley. We then continue down to Muktinath and is at the beginning quite easy, but does have some undulating part in the middle of the trek. We then head down on a steep descent to Muktinath with views of Mt. Dhaulagiri along the way.

Before heading off to Pokhara we will visit Muktinath Temple, a very sacred temple for Buddhists and Hindus. We will also visit Jwala Mai Sanctuary before heading for Jomson from where we will drive back to Pokhara where our trek ends.

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.

Physical fitness

This can be a challenging trek where you often have to walk 6-7 hours a day.

Before leaving for Nepal it is good if you can prepare yourself physically by increasing your stamina and oxygen intake. 

Remember – The better prepared – the more enjoyable your trek!
