Trip Overview

Annapurna circuit offers the greatest diversity of flora, fauna and landscape of any trek in Nepal. From sub-tropical to alpine forests, from lush jungle to arid wind-swept valleys, few other treks enable you to walk through such a changing environment. From Kathmandu we cross fertile, terraced valleys, following the Marsyangdi River.

An awe inspiring trek of incredible diversity, panoramic views and soaring peaks. We take you from sub-tropical zones right up to the very edge of the arid Tibetan plateau. An unparalleled trek that combines the Marsyangdi Valley with the Sacred Kali Gandaki Valley and encircles the entire Annapurna Himal.

We pass Manaslu and Himalchuli to our east as we ascend through the Manang valley to the highest point of our trek, the Thorung La pass. The pass is at the very edge of the Tibetan plateau and affords unsurpassed panoramic views. Once across, we visit the pilgrimage town of Muktinath, before descending along the Kali Gandaki valley, towards Pokhara, (this last section is the reverse of the famous Jomsom trek).

Trekking past the Dhaulagiri Ice flow, we encounter the world deepest gorge, where the powerful Kali Gandaki River has cut deep through the Himalaya between the massive peaks of Dhaulagiri and Annapurna. Hot springs await us at Tatopani followed by a magnificent sunrise at Poon Hill, before descending back to Pokhara.

Clients will carry daypack only and walk at their own pace. Total trekking hours will be about 6-7hr.
