Annapurna Circuit Trek was the famous trekking route in Annapurna for long days trekking in Nepal. Now it became a two weeks trekking route after the development of roads in the lower part of the trekking areas. Annapurna Circuit trekking also popular as Round Annapurna Trek is still the top choice of many adventure lovers because of its diverse geographical features and beautiful sceneries.
Annapurna Circuit trek combines wonderful experiences of walking through river valleys to the high mountain into the wilderness. Though many places with teahouses and lodges offer modern lodging and food options.
The trekking route is popular from the anticlockwise direction that starts from Bhulbhule, a place after the famous Beshishar. You will drive from Kathmandu to Bhulbhule by jeep or local bus and start your trekking following the famous trekking route along the Marshyangdi River. If you want to shorten your trekking then drive to Chame – a city in Manang also possible which reduces the two days walking.
The trekking route of the Annapurna circuit passes through some incredible places like Pisang, Tilicho Lake, Manang, Yak Kharka, and Thorang Phedi to cross the Thorang La Pass.
Walking through this beautiful river valley brings you the wonders of rural life and the culture of the region. It slowly and gradually takes you higher into the mountains and eventually takes you over a mountain pass.
The mountain pass, Thorong La, stands at an elevation of 5,416 meters above sea level. It also offers us an incredible view of the surrounding Himalayas. It later enters the Kali Gandaki river valley as we walk down towards Jomsom.
The Annapurna Circuit trek is not only about walking in the mountains but also about enjoying the cultural beauty of the villages that come along the trail. It passes through several beautiful cultural villages as you traverse the trail in the river valleys and mountains. The trekking part for adventure ends at Jomsom before taking a flight to Pokhara.
If you want to extend your trekking up to the base camp of the famous Annapurna Mountain, then this trekking can be combined with the Annapurna Base Camp trekking route from Tatopani. One way you can visit the Ghorepani is by adding extra ½ days. It takes you extra 3/4 days to complete both trekkings. This combination will also be an awesome experience however it requires you more days to walk.
Trekking around Annapurna is possible all year round however spring and autumn seasons are the best time. The Spring season falls under the months of March to May and the autumn season falls under September to early December. In winter the heavy snowfall makes it difficult to find the trekking path and in the rainy season, rain and landslide risk is high for trekking.
The trekking cost of Annapurna Circuit depends on the group size of the trekking, services you want to use, and guides/porters you want to hire. Private transportation will raise your trip cost. Hiring guides and porters also affects trekking costs. The single guide can lead up to 16 persons and one porter can carry 20kg baggage. Our company offers a single porter for every two trekkers.
When you are going on this adventure, make sure you are packing these essentials in your luggage.
Apart from these essentials, you can pack things as per your need. However, while trekking in the high mountains, keeping your essentials to the bare minimum is highly recommended.

Our group first meet Basu at Thamel. We had plan to do the Annapurna Circuit trek and Basu was very helpful in providing us with all the information needed to complete circuit. The price for the 14 days was cheaper than we had expected. We were given a well spoken english and caring guide, his name was Pradip. Overall the trek was well planned and our group was extremely happy with the experience. Definitely will be making more appearances to Nepal and will be going back to Adventure Himalaya Circuit Treks and Tours for more trekking adventure.
