The trek traverses a multitude of landscapes to ultimately cross one of the highest mountain passes in the Himalaya – the Thorong La Pass (5416 meters). Not only that, but along the trail, you visit fanciful villages, raging rivers, rugged mountains, and the eye-popping Tilicho Lake. We promise that you will not regret the Annapurna Circuit Trek – the ultimate backpacking adventure.
There are few better experiences for the body and mind than spending two weeks on the trail, surrounded by pristine natural beauty. Instead of waking up for your 9 to 5, rise from your restful slumber and be present in each passing moment. You are never in a rush on the trail, as you are constantly soaking in the glory of the Annapurna region.
Our Annapurna Circuit Trek itinerary begins in Tal, following a scenic drive from Kathmandu. Trace the Marsyangdi River as you cruise through the lush landscape. Learn about the local Gurung and other ethnic groups along the way, gaining knowledge about their day to day lifestyle. Head up through the Manang district, a definitive point where you realize you are truly in the Himalaya.
Keep ascending to Tilicho Lake (4900 meters), a most memorable moment of the trek. The crystal blue waters are unlike anything in the world. It is also one of the highest, if not the highest lake in the world of its size. Snap some photos and head back to Tilicho Base Camp (4400 meters). The next highlight of the trek is crossing the famous Thorong La Pass (5416 meters). The view up there takes your breath away, literally and figuratively. See some of the highest peaks in the world, including Dhaulagiri (8167m), Manaslu (8156m) and Annapurna I (8090m).
Day after day, the Annapurna Circuit Trek just keeps giving. From the pass, we descend to Muktinath, where there is a famous pilgrimage site. Join the dozens of Hindus from all parts of India and Nepal in bathing in the sacred waters. Whether you are religious or not, the experience is joyous for everyone. The trek ends with a hike through the windy Kali Gandaki River Valley to Jomsom – and what a journey it has been! Join us on this incredible, world-famous trek!
Book the Annapurna CircuitTrek all throughout the year. Though the trek is available anytime, certain seasons provide the best weather. In the springtime (March to May), the rhododendrons are blooming and scenery is lush. During autumn (September to November), skies are clearest and mountain views are best. Summer (rainy season) and winter do not provide the best trekking conditions, but on the other hand, you can enjoy more solitude on the trail. If you have any questions, please contact us!
