Annapurna Circuit Trek is an outstanding trekking option in the Annapurna Region of Nepal. It is more isolated and a harsh trek, consisting of a sub-tropical, tropical, and alpine altitude landscape. It includes the tenth tallest mountain in the world and the highest pass of this region i.e. Annapurna I(8019 m) and Thorong La Pass (5,416 m) respectively. The trek goes through the world’s deepest Kali Gandaki Gorge and also offers views of Mt. Dhaulagiri.

The trek leads the trekkers to the beautiful ethnic villages enjoying the surrounding mountain views. It goes along the dense forests and crosses the suspension bridges. The terraced farmlands, waterfalls, and hilly gorges are the basic highlights of the Annapurna Circuit Treks. As trekking goes up, the vegetation becomes shorter and shorter, and starts to see the grazing yaks and horses on the meadow.

Round Annapurna Trek starts from Khudi after having a scenic drive from Kathmandu along the hilly area. The trail reaches Sirung by crossing the suspension bridge and the waterfalls. Chame is a beautiful place from where the Lamjung Himal, Annapurna II, and Annapurna IV can be seen.

Similarly, the way to Manang through the route of Upper Pisang offers stunning views of Mt. Annapurna, Pisang Peak, and other Himalayan ranges. Manang Village is the extra charm of the Annapurna Round Trekking trail, mainly inhabited by ethnic groups. So, the Annapurna trekkers get the chance to know them and their culture from the worm’s eye view.

The trail rounds around the Annapurna area from the eastern -part with Mt. Annapurna I to the western part with Mt. Dhaulagiri. Thorung La Pass touches the edge of the Tibetan Plateau. Crossing over this path is a little bit difficult as the trekkers need to walk on the rocky and icy path. However, our experience guide leads them in a very careful way.

The trek goes down to the holy place Muktinath. It is a more mystical and holy feeling to worship in the Muktinath temple, which is a widely appreciated destination.

Poon Hill Hiking is another attraction that offers awestruck views of sunrise and sunset over the Himalayan giants.

Furthermore, the scenic flight from Jomsom to Pokhara over the mountains and the relaxation time at the lakeside of Pokhara are mind-blowing experiences.

Regarding the Annapurna Circuit Trekking difficulty, it is quite hard while crossing the Thorong La Pass until reaching Muktinath. So, good acclimatization is required to avoid the complication as the trail is moderately strenuous.

Though Annapurna Circuit Trek solo is possible, we strongly recommend every trekker to hire at least a porter for finding the route easily. Because it is a bit difficult to find a route even going through the Annapurna Round Trek Map. Besides, it is not an easy job to find a hotel at a higher altitude especially in the high season.

October to November and March to May are the Annapurna Circuit Trek Best Times. During the monsoon, it is a little bit dangerous as the landslide may occur.

Annapurna Circuit Trek Itinerary is the longest itinerary of this region. It requires more days to complete the trekking as the trail includes the whole hidden beauty of Annapurna region sites.
