Annapurna Circuit Trek Overview

The Annapurna Circuit Trek in Nepal is known for being a very long and diverse trek. It covers about 128 miles and goes through four areas - Lamjung, Manang, Mustang, and Myagdi - and two zones - Dhaulagiri and Gandaki. During this trek, you walk around the Annapurna massif and see other tall peaks like Dhaulagiri, Nilgiri, Manaslu, Machhapuchhre, Gangapurna, and Tilicho Peak.

But it's not just about the beautiful mountains. This trek has a lot to offer, such as different types of weather (from warm to very cold), changes in altitude (from low valleys to very high passes), different landscapes (from forests to snowy areas), and challenging trails (steep, narrow, icy, windy, and dusty). There are also many religions to explore, including Hinduism, Buddhism, Bonpo, and Tibetan Buddhism. You can visit small, quiet villages like Thini, Lurpa, and Nargon and meet tribal communities like the Gurung, Thakali, and Manangi, each with their own traditions, celebrations, food, dances, and languages.

The Annapurna Circuit Trek has lots of exciting things to see and do. You'll walk through pretty river valleys, cross a tough pass called Thorung La at 5,400 meters, and visit special places like Muktinath Temple, which has natural gas that makes a cool fire. There's also the Jwala Mai Temple and an old monastery called Braga. This trek has a mix of things to do. You can take a holy bath at Muktinath under 108 taps and swim in the cold Saraswati and Laxmi Kunds. Or you can relax in hot springs at Chame and Tatopani. Don't forget to see the beautiful sunrise at Poon Hill. We'll give you a map to help you find your way.

Holiday Planner Treks can make a personalized Annapurna Circuit trek just for you. If you have a lot of time, try our 20-day Annapurna Circle Trek. If you don't have much time, we have shorter options like the 10-day Ghorepani-Poonhill Trek or the 12-day Annapurna Panorama Trek. The cost depends on what you want.

As I look back now, 2 months following our 3 week trek of the Annapurna Circuit, the experience puts a smile on my face and a feeling of the true sense of accomplishment that we had. I had some reluctance going in since I was a novice trekker, but 2 things stood out in making my decision to "take the plunge" and head to Nepal:
(1) I was going with trusted friends
(2) Two of these friends in our group were making a return trip to Nepal and utilizing the same guide  whom they used on their first trek of Nepal and to Mt. Everest Base Camp. I can see why they chose  Eak Lal (co-owner of  Holiday Planner Treks & Expedition ) to lead us through the Annapurna Circuit.  Eak  Lal not only showed us the way , but he educated  those of us that were not experienced trekkers on how to safely complete the trek. He also allowed us to enjoy the beauty of Nepal and the beauty of the Nepalese people along the way.

Every morning, I looked forward to lacing up my trekking boots, grabbing my trekking poles and heading out. I won't lie: I also looked forward (in the early afternoon, or sometimes late afternoon) to walking into our destination village for the evening , taking off those boots , and sipping on a cold beer before dinner. What a feeling of accomplishment on a daily basis! Can't say enough about  Eak  Lal our guide, and his team of porters who assisted us throughout the trip. We appreciated their knowledge and enjoyed their company. Would highly recommend them to anyone considering a trek through Nepal.
