Introduction To Annapurna Circuit Trek In Nepal

The Annapurna Circuit Trek takes you through the Annapurna region, around the entire Annapurna massifs, and includes crossing Thorung La Pass (5,416m), walking along the edge of the world’s deepest gorge (Kaligandaki Gorge), seeing the sunrise over the Himalayas from Poon Hill, visiting Muktinath temple (a major Hindu and Buddhist pilgrimage site), and relaxing in the Tatopani hot springs.

We’ll be passing through numerous climatic zones, including rice paddy fields, subtropical woodlands, rural farming, and glacier zones, at altitudes ranging from 800m to 5,416m.

Mt. Dhaulagiri (8,167 meters), Mt. Annapurna I (8,091 meters), Mt. Manaslu (8,163 meters), Mt. Annapurna II (7,937 meters), Mt. Annapurna III (7,555 meters), Mt. Annapurna IV (7,525 meters), Mt. Annapurna south (7,219 meters), Mt. Nilgiri (7,041 meters), Mt. (7134m).

This walk allows you to learn about the Tibetan way of life, which is prevalent in the Mustang valleys. Along with blue sheep, there’s a potential of witnessing a snow leopard at Yak Kharka. We’ll also make a pit break at Tatopani, where you may cool off in the famous hot springs.

After a magnificent drive from Kathmandu, we will begin the walk-in Bhulbhule, and the route will take you through Jagat, Dharapani, Chame, and Pisang, following the Marsyandghi River Valley. We’ll be spending the night at each of these locations.

On our sixth day, we walk to Manang, where we will spend the night to acclimate before crossing the Thorung La pass. We continue the trek to Yak Kharka after acclimating at Manang, and the next day, we hike up to Thorong Phedi and spend the night there.

On our ninth day, we journey from Thorong Phedi to Muktinath, and this is the day you will pass Thorong La Pass (5,416m/17,769ft). Manang village in the east is connected to Muktinath temple and Ranipauwa village in the west via the Thorong La Pass.

We descend to Muktinath, a sacred Hindu, and Buddhist pilgrimage site, after crossing cross the Thorong La Pass. We drive from Muktinath to Tatopani, which is known for its hot springs. People think that Tatopani’s hot spring water treats skin ailments. You are welcome to take a bath in this hot water. We’ll be staying at Tatopani for the night.

The next day, we’ll climb from Tatopani to Ghorepani, passing through lush rhododendron, birch, and magnolia forests. We’ll be staying in Ghorepani for the night.

We get up the next morning in Ghorepani and travel for approximately an hour to Poon Hill. Dhaulagiri, Annapurna (I, II, III, South), Hiuchuli, Nilgiri, Macchapuchre, Tukuche Peak, Dhampus Peak, and Gurja Himal are all visible from Poon Hill.

We walk to Berithanti and then drive to Pokhara, where we will spend our final night in the trekking region, after spending some quality time at Poon Hill. We’ll take a tourist bus back to Kathmandu the next morning.

This trek is designed for hikers who want to go on challenging treks in Nepal’s Himalayan area while taking in the varied landscape, topography, and climate zones. Other intriguing trek packages in the Annapurna region are available, and we will tailor your trek to your preferences.

Meals during the Trek

Because the Annapurna Trek takes you to altitudes near the world’s highest peaks, your body will require adequate carbohydrates, protein, and sustenance. While you will be provided with healthful food throughout the walk, you may not have access to all of the alternatives offered in larger cities.

In the trek regions, this program includes 14 breakfasts, 13 lunches, and 13 dinners. Here are a few possibilities.

All personal costs (alcoholic, hot (tea, coffee), and cold drinks) in tea houses/lodges/cafés are excluded from the package, except for standard meals (breakfast, lunch, and dinner with seasonal fruits). The package does not include lunch or dinner in Pokhara.

What is the best time for the Trek?

The most crucial element to consider for this Trek is the weather. The Annapurna circuit attracts trekkers all year, although there are ups and downs as the seasons change.

Spring and autumn are ideal seasons for gentler hikes. From sunrise to sunset, the skies are bright and there is no rain, allowing you to take in the breathtaking views.

The winters are chilly in the hiking regions, with snowfalls, while the monsoon season brings a lot of rain. Trekking during these seasons is therefore difficult but not impossible. In fact, some hikers look forward to taking on these hurdles.

Based on seasons, here is a thorough breakdown of the trial circumstances, which were mostly at high elevations.

March-May (Spring)

The weather is pleasant, the rainfall is light, and the trekking conditions are ideal during this season. The average daily temperature in these regions’ high elevations ranges from 8 to 0 degrees Celsius. Because the lower trip parts are warmer, the hike is rather pleasant.

After March, the hiking season begins. The trek trails are covered in crimson, pink, and white rhododendron blooms by April at elevations above 3,000 meters.

From mid-March until mid-May, the temperature begins to rise. The weather is pleasant, the skies are clear, and the mountains are seen in all their glory.

June to August (Summer)

If you want to hike the Annapurna Circuit between June and August, you’ll be doing so during the summer, when the weather is hot. However, because the monsoon coincides with summer, you must be extra cautious while trekking because the terrain may be wet and slick.

The monsoon season usually starts at the end of June and lasts until the second week of August. The temperature fluctuates from 10 to 23°C during the day and drops to 5°C to 10°C at night. The mornings are normally clear, with clouds forming in the afternoon and then dissipating at night.

Though the rain may pose some issues, a variety of plants bloom throughout this season, making the valleys appear green and distinct from other seasons.

September to November (Autumn)

Autumn (September, October, and November), like Spring, is a popular season for trekkers from all over the world. Autumn is a great time to go hiking because of the moderate temperatures, light winds, and low precipitation.

The sun shines brilliantly, the day temperature is ideal for trekking, the sky is clear, and you have a spectacular view of the mountains during this season. Furthermore, you will be treated to stunning starry skies.

By early September, the monsoons will have passed, and the weather will be mild to warm. In high altitudes, daytime temperatures can reach up to 20°C, while nighttime temperatures can drop to as low as 5°C.

The monsoon greens fade to golden/amber, creating a stunning contrast against the crystal blue skies, and the grains in the fields are ripening. The lowlands are lush and the environment is clean. Dashain and Tihar, Nepal’s two most important festivals, also fall during these months.

December to February (Winter)

The Annapurna region’s winter treks are just as popular as the region’s spring and autumn treks. While some portions of the Annapurna region are frigid at this time of year, many trekkers are excited. The Annapurna Circuit can be as cold as -10 degrees Celsius.

The Annapurna region’s coldest season begins in December and lasts until early February. The weather steadily warms in late February. The sun makes it feel warmer during the day. Despite the cold, the skies are frequently clear, and the snow-capped mountain views are breathtaking.

It’s the time of year when the trails are the least congested. This season may not be ideal for novice trekkers, but experienced trekkers should have no trouble.

The weather in the Himalayas (at high altitudes) is erratic, and temperatures fluctuate rapidly.


A rest day at Manang (3,540m) is included in our 14-day trek package to ensure proper acclimatization and avoid altitude sickness, also known as acute mountain sickness.

Although altitude sickness is preventable, it can be fatal if the symptoms are ignored.

You will begin your trip from Bhulbhule (845m) and trek for four to five days in low elevation before arriving in Manang (3540m). The journey preparation gives your body enough time to adjust to the high-altitude environment, lowering the risk of altitude sickness.

Our trek leaders and guides have thorough first-aid training and significant Himalayan expertise. We use oximeters all the time to check your oxygen levels and detect early signs of altitude sickness.

We assure you that your health is in capable hands. Your trek leader or guide will advise you on how to be safe. The easiest approach to avoid altitude sickness is to hike slowly and drink at least 4 liters of water every day.

Please keep in mind that your group leader has the last say on whether or not to continue your ascent based on the general health of your team. It’s critical to remember that some people are more vulnerable than others.

Physical Condition & Experience Requirements

Our 14-day trek in the Annapurna region is a demanding journey.

The hike takes place on the lower ground for five days (below 3500m) between Bhulbhule (845m) and Manang (3540m), with five to six hours of walking every day. You will be climbing for 3 to 4 hours over 3,500m for two days, from Manang (3,540m) to Thorong Phedi (4,525m), taking many stops because high altitude treks are physically demanding.

The most difficult leg of your walk, however, will take you from Thorong Phedi to Muktinath Temple (3,760m), and we will be traversing Thorong La Pass (5,416m), the highest point on the trail.

This walk takes you on an isolated alpine journey with long climbs, sharp descents, and straight-ahead highways.

Previous hiking experience would be beneficial, but no technical knowledge or abilities are required. This walk can be completed by hikers who can hike for 5 to 6 hours per day at a fair pace.

Regular exercise for a few weeks before the trip enhances your stamina and allows you to fully appreciate the hike. Possessing a positive attitude, self-assurance, and tenacity goes a long way. Before signing up for the journey, trekkers with pre-existing medical issues (such as heart, lung, or blood illnesses) must reveal their health status.

Group trek | Private & Solo Treks

We organize both group and private treks. Group discounts are available dependent on the size of your group. The larger your group, the greater the savings. Please see our price list for further information. Simply click the – we offer group discounts – link on the right.

We can accommodate any group size. For groups of 12 or more, there will be a guide, a porter for every two trekkers, and an assistant guide.

Trek Guide | Typical day on the Trek | Annapurna Video

Every day on the walk is different, with you traveling up and down hills, admiring the scenery, snapping photos, and discovering local settlements. Our knowledgeable and cheerful Sherpa guide will share information and the history of the places you will visit with you along your adventure.

Your stuff will be carried by our porters. You may, however, need to bring a small bag with you to protect your valuables and crucial documents.

The day begins with a nice cup of tea or coffee in the morning. After breakfast, we’ll pack our belongings and leave for the day’s walk between 7 and 8 a.m., depending on the length and character of the trek. After three to four hours of hiking, we will have lunch, relax for an hour, and then resume our journey.

The afternoon stroll is usually shorter, lasting between two and three hours. We munch on the additional dietary food and explore the neighboring sights before it becomes dark once we arrive at our overnight lodge/tea house/tent.

Dinner will be served between 6 and 7 p.m. We have cordial discussions after supper and before going to bed. The excursion leader/guide will give you an overview of the next day’s activities.

After the briefing, you can play monopoly, play cards, read novels, or watch mountaineering films onboard. The majority of our visitors prefer to learn common Nepali words from our staff.

Communication during the trek

During the walk, you can use the internet for a modest cost at the lodges where you will be staying. From the lodges, you can communicate with your family and friends. We will, however, use phones to communicate once we reach high elevations. Every day, the office communicates with all hiking groups via a trekking guide at least once.

Furthermore, depending on the type of network you use, network signals may or may not be strong enough at high altitudes. In Kathmandu, though, you can get a local sim card.

Wi-Fi is usually provided for an additional fee at all trek lodges.

Extra personal expenses for the Trek

In Kathmandu, guests are responsible for arranging their own meals and lodging. The package includes all meals, transport, and lodgings needed for the Trek.

However, lunch and dinner in Pokhara are not included in this package. Pokhara, Nepal’s tourist capital, offers a diverse range of dining options. We invite you to explore the city and eat whatever you like.

Trekkers, too, require funds for visa fees, travel insurance policy purchases, beverages, snacks, tips, and mementos, among other things. We recommend bringing cash (in the form of dollars) and exchanging it for rupees in Kathmandu. You can also withdraw money from ATMs in Kathmandu using your credit or debit card.

Electricity for battery recharge, water requirements

Electricity for camera and mobile battery recharge is offered at an additional fee throughout the Annapurna trip lodges.

Water can be purchased in the form of packed mineral water from local lodges and en route shops, or heated water can be filled at an additional cost from the lodges. Purification pills are provided by Discovery World Trekking to make water drinkable.

We advise against drinking water from rivers, taps, or wells in hiking areas because the water may not be safe to drink.

Information Regarding Travel Insurance

The Thorung La High Pass, at 5,416 meters, is the highest point on this route. This is not a pleasant hike, but rather a strenuous one, with the risk of altitude sickness and other unforeseen catastrophes such as accidents, diseases, floods, landslide, or abrupt climatic changes.

This expedition necessitates the purchase of travel insurance. We require a copy of every trekker’s comprehensive travel insurance policy certificate.

All trekking members must be covered for medical and emergency repatriation, including helicopter rescue and evacuation charges at high elevations.

We can make recommendations for insurance companies based on our clients’ experiences, but we do not sell policies.

Once our valued clients have booked trekking, we strongly urge them to email us their comprehensive insurance information. We shall use the insurance policy and informational materials you supplied us in the event of an emergency. It will assist us in planning a rapid and efficient rescue effort, as well as a transfer for emergency medical assistance.

Please double-check that your insurance policy covers the cost of mountain rescue services at the highest point of your trek.

 Trek Safely

We ensure the safety, security, and contentment of our valued customers. We are really concerned about your safety. Here are some of the methods we use to keep you safe.

  • We have all of the appropriate gear, equipment, and first-aid supplies with us.
  • Our trek leaders have undergone extensive first-aid training.
  • Our trek guides have the entire authority to cancel or continue the excursion if someone becomes ill.
  • In the event of an emergency, a helicopter will be dispatched for evacuation (covered by insurance).
  • The entire walk will be done in a group.

Please check with your travel insurance company to see if they cover helicopter rescue and evacuation up to 6,000 meters. Do not just rely on the information on their website.

Nepal Tourist Visa

Except for Indian nationals, all foreigners must have a valid visa to enter Nepal. At Tribhuvan International Airport and Nepal’s borders with India and Tibet, you can obtain an on-arrival visa. Visit for additional details.

You’ll need a passport that’s valid for at least six months, a passport-size photo, and visa fees to apply for a visa. A 30-day visa costs $50 at the moment (to be paid in cash).

A free visa will be given to children under the age of ten. It is strongly recommended that you examine the current regulations. Visa regulations are subject to change at any time. Citizens of China and members of the South Asian Association for Regional Cooperation (SAARC) (Bangladesh, Bhutan, India, Maldives, Pakistan, and Sri Lanka) are exempt from visa fees.

Certain countries’ citizens may be denied a visa upon arrival. On-arrival visas are not available for citizens of Nigeria, Ghana, Zimbabwe, Swaziland, Cameroon, Somalia, Liberia, Ethiopia, Iraq, Palestine, and Afghanistan. If you are a citizen of one of these countries, please contact the Nepalese Embassy in your country.

Before we embark on our journey, we’ll double-check everything (luggage, equipment, etc.) during our briefing.

How Much Luggage Can I take during the Trek?

Your stuff will be carried by porters. Two trekkers will be served by one porter, and the total luggage weight should not exceed 18 kg. As a result, each trekker is limited to 9kg. Our porters are never overworked. We also want you to bring a small backpack with you to protect your valuables and crucial documents.

Money exchange | USD to NPR

Nepali Rupees (NPR/Rs) are the local currency.

(1 USD = ~ Rs.120 NPR).

You can exchange major foreign currencies through local banks and legitimate money exchanges in Kathmandu and all over Thamel. Legitimate money exchanges display their ongoing exchange rates visibly to the public.

Please note – only 100 INR (Indian Rupees) and 2000 INR notes are legal in Nepal.

Despite having the security advantage of traveler’s cheques, we prefer cash exchange. It helps avoid lengthy processes and high bank commissions. 

You can withdraw cash (in Rupees)from ATMs all over Kathmandu and Thamel itself. Many of these ATMs are open around the clock. The maximum withdrawal amount is 35,000 Rupees for a 500 Rupees processing fee for foreign cards.

If you use the money exchange facilities at banks and financial institutions, they impose a service charge fee of about 4% or more.

During the trek, there are no banks and money exchange services so you should exchange your money in Kathmandu, depending on how much personal expense you require. Only Nepali Rupee is accepted in trekking regions.

Most established banks in Asia will only accept foreign currency notes that are not old, torn, or faded. Please ensure that you have new, clean notes.

Traveling Responsibly

We are firm believers in environmentally responsible tourism. As a result, we collaborate with the Kathmandu Environmental Education Project (KEEP) to create environmentally sustainable treks that benefit both trekkers and communities in the trekking areas.

Our knowledgeable guide/Sherpa will accompany us on the trek to ensure your safety and comfort. Your stuff will be carried by porters.

Our members are locals from high Himalayan remote places, and they have exceptional physical endurance at high altitudes.

We value all of our employees, so we pay them well and take care of their insurance, clothing, food, and lodging throughout the trip. When our guides and porters become unwell or injured, they receive medical attention.

-Highest Altitude: 3,540m / 11,300ft
-Trek Duration: 5 - 6 hrs

On this day, we'll be acclimating. We will, however, spend the entire day exploring Manang village. We'll explore Gangapurna & Ice Lakes in the morning, then spend the rest of the day taking in the breathtaking vistas of Annapurna III, Tilicho, Pisang, and Chulu Peaks. We may go to the Himalayan Rescue Association in Vraja village in the afternoon to learn about severe mountain sickness, its symptoms, and how to avoid it.

We travel to Yak Kharka after spending a day in and around Manang acclimating to the high altitude and enabling our bodies to recover and adjust to the new environment. We'll cross a stream and rise to Tenki village before heading northwest out of Marshyangdi valley to Jar Sang Khola valley. As we travel north, the trail gradually ascends.

We'll pass through a juniper grove and various meadows. As we continue on our journey, we will pass through Gunsan, a little village with buildings with flat mud roofs. Yak and horse pastures will also be seen. We make our way up the stunning valley to Yak Kharka, an open, calm meadow, after crossing a little river on a wooden bridge.

-Highest Altitude: 4,050m / 14,275ft

Today we'll travel to Thorong Phedi, the base of the Thorong La pass. We will trek up to a ridge from Yak Kharka, then descend and cross the Marsyangdi river on a wooden bridge. Following a small trail across a slope, we descend to Thorung Phedi after ascending the mountain. The deserted, craggy environment seems surreal, a far cry from the lush lowlands we went through on the way up during the first round of the journey.

-Trek Distance: 8.5km / 5.2miles
-Highest Altitude: 4,525m / 14,525ft
-Trek Duration: 4-5 hrs

We will hike from Thorong Phedi (4,525m/14,525ft) to Muktinath Temple (3,760m/12,623ft) over Thorung La high pass (5,416 m/17,756 ft) on this day. It is also one of the most difficult stages of the walk, as Thorong La Pass is one of the world's highest passes and the route's highest point.

We set out early in the morning to battle through the chilly air and high altitude, but the sights from the pass are well worth the effort. We will see a panorama of spectacular Himalayan peaks to the north, towards Tibet, and the Annapurna range to the back.

We then make our way to Muktinath, a Hindu and Buddhist pilgrimage site. Muktinath is known to Buddhists as Chumig Gyatsa, which means Hundred Waters in Tibetan. Muktinath Temple is famous for its 108 stone sprouts that sprout water from the Kaligandaki River. You can also view the 2,000-year-old perpetual flame that has been blazing there.

-Trek Distance: 15.6km / 9.6miles
-Highest Altitude: 5,416m /17,756ft
-Trek Duration: 9 hrs

We visit Muktinath Temple in the morning before continuing our journey to Tatopani on a local bus. It will be a difficult journey because the road runs through some of the world's deepest canyons. From the barren hills to the lush green forests, we'll be traveling. Tatopani is known for its natural hot springs, and it is a place where we may relax by immersing ourselves in them. Tatopani's waters are known to offer healing powers for skin ailments.

-Driving Hours: (113km / 70miles ) 6-7 hrs
-Highest Altitude: 3,760m / 12,623ft

We leave the hot springs behind and travel to Ghorepani via the ethnic Thakali settlements of Sikha and Chitre on the east bank of the Kali Gandaki River. Our journey takes us through terraced farmlands surrounded by mountains, as well as rich forests of rhododendron, birch, and magnolia. We'll spend the night in Ghorepani, a picturesque town perched on a ridgetop.

-Trek Distance: 17km / 10.5miles
-Highest Altitude: 2,860m / 9,385ft
-Trek Duration: 6-7 hrs

Today is our last day on the trek. Early in the morning, we climb to Poon Hill (3,210m) for a dawn panorama of the Annapurna and Dhaulagiri massifs, including Mt Machhapuchhre (Fishtail). Because of the breathtaking vistas, Poon Hill is one of the most popular photographic locations. We'll also take as many shots as we want before returning to our Ghorepani resort for breakfast. We will walk to Birethanti after breakfast and then board a bus to Pokhara.
