What’s life Without A Bit Of Challenge?

Annapurna Circuit Trek Nepal is one of the world’s most legendary trekking routes. We have heard older adults from America telling us about how they conquered the great Annapurna Circuit trek in their youth days.

It’s been more than five decades since this trail opened for foreigners and yet remains Nepal’s most popular trekking route. And if you ever ask a trekker what their best trek in Nepal was, the answer will probably be the Annapurna Circuit trek.

What is Annapurna?

Annapurna is a Himalayan range in central of Nepal that includes a group of really tall mountains. Mount Annapurna is named after a Hindu goddess of food and nourishment. This group’s tallest mountain is Annapurna I, standing at a whopping 8,091 meters. It’s even higher than the tallest mountain in the European Alps. The Annapurna Circuit route offers glimpses of Annapurna I, Annapurna II, Annapurna III, and other stunning peaks.

The region is known for the Annapurna Circuit, a popular trekking route around these majestic peaks. The trek is challenging but rewarding, especially when reaching the highest point, Thorung La, at 5,416 meters. It’s like climbing a mountain, but you’re mostly walking up. The views during the trek are breathtaking, with snowy landscapes, traditional villages, and even a deep gorge. Annapurna Circuit Nepal is a place of adventure and natural beauty, attracting trekkers worldwide who want to experience the magic of these towering mountains.

So, Where exactly Is Annapurna?

Annapurna is 173 km northwest of Kathmandu. The massif has over a dozen peaks, including Annapurna I, Annapurna II, Annapurna South, Annapurna West, and many more. Among them, the highest peak, Annapurna itself, is 8,091 km from sea level, the 10th height in the world. And you should know that the Annapurna route has the most beautiful mountain in Nepal.

The Annapurna Circle trek in Nepal is accompanied by the majestic view of the mountain and wonders of the massif Annapurna. The feeling of wandering beneath the shadow of the world’s ten highest mountains is prodigious. Encircled by a snow-filled peak in all directions, you get to stand under the flawless sky.

Every sunrise and sunset you witness during the trek shall give a heavenly feel. Almost all trekkers join the Annapurna Circuit trek route at Besisahar in the Lamjung district. We drive to Jagat on a newly built roadway. Walking via the Jagat village, we get to Pisang and Chame.

We stopped at Manang, the headquarters of Myagdi, and explored the places around. Then we cross Thorong La via Yar Kharka to enter into the deserted land of Mustang. Then, we fly/ drive to Pokhara, the spectacular city of seven lakes. The excellent Annapurna Circuit Itinerary ends in Kathmandu.

What is the Annapurna Circuit?

Annapurna Circuit Trek
Annapurna Circuit Trek

The Annapurna Circuit is a long-distance trekking route that encircles the Annapurna mountains. Hiking Annapurna Circuit takes approximately 12-22 days, covering a 160-230km distance. Hiking Annapurna Circuit offers stunning views of Annapurna peaks, Dhaulagiri, Machhapuchhre, and various landscapes like lowland villages, mountains, forests, and fields. Trekkers often stay in local tea houses along the route.

Roads on the Annapurna Circuit and How to Avoid Them

Despite being a popular trekking area since 1977, roads have been constructed in the region since 1980, causing controversy. Only five out of 23 days on the Annapurna Circuit route are completely road-free. To avoid roads on the Annapurna Circuit, hikers can use alternative trails marked by the New Annapurna Trekking Trail (NATT) system. Bike packing the Annapurna Circuit is a unique adventure, providing a different landscape perspective.

Attention !!!!!

Since April 1st, the Nepalese government has revised the law to prohibit trekking without a guide. You need a guide to access the conservation area if you’re planning on hiking the Annapurna Circuit.

How Long Is The Annapurna Circle Trek?

The Annapurna Circuit trek distance is between 160 and 200 kilometers (100-130 miles). The length Annapurna Circuit route depends on where you start the trek and where you end it. After the latest development in the road network, the trek can now be completed in 12 days.

Even for a slow climber, the Annapurna Circuit Himalayas Trek will be less than three weeks. Earlier, the trekkers set a challenging walk of about a month. The trekking distance has also been reduced to less than 150 km.

Are you ready to have the best times of your time?

Why is Annapurna Dangerous?

Annapurna is risky mainly because of its highest peak, Annapurna I. Sadly, it has the highest number of deaths among tall mountains. Climbing is tough, with 34 out of 100 climbers not returning. Due to these risks, many trekkers choose to go around Annapurna instead of trying to reach the top. The challenging conditions, unpredictable weather, and technical difficulties make climbing Annapurna I very dangerous. Instead of summiting, trekking around Annapurna is a common choice due to the high risks associated with climbing Annapurna I. Trekking the Annapurna Circuit requires careful consideration of the altitude to avoid altitude sickness.

How Cold Does it Get on the Annapurna Circuit?

During winter, daytime temperatures range from 5-10°C, dropping as low as -20°C at higher altitudes, especially during the night. Even in the warmer months, temperatures can go below 10°C at altitudes above 4,000m. Even in the summer, warm clothing is essential due to freezing conditions at higher points like Thorong La Pass.

Alternative Trekking Routes in Annapurna

  1. Trek to the Ice Lake at the Annapurna IV Glacier: A five-day hike with spectacular views of Dhaulagiri, Lamjunh Himal, and Fish Tail.
  2. Hike to Annapurna Sanctuary: A 10-day trek through snow-capped mountains, rhododendron forests, and Gurung settlements.
  3. Trek to Mardi Himal Base Camp: A trek opened in 2011 offering diverse views, including Mardi Himal and Machhapuchhre.
  4. Poon Hill-Ghorepani Trek: A shorter trek with steep climbs, ending in a sunrise view from Poon Hill.
  5. Trek to Lake Tilicho: A bypass from the Annapurna Circuit to the highest lake of its size in the world.
  6. Lower Mustang: A visit to the dry and barren region accessible by bus or flight, offering unique geological features.
  7. Nar Phu Valley: A remote and under-visited area between Annapurna and Manaslu, providing an adventurous trek with rugged trails and Tibetan Buddhist culture.

Getting to Nepal:

To reach Nepal from Europe or the USA, the main route involves an international flight to Tribhuvan International Airport in Kathmandu. Various flights, particularly from the Middle East, offer daily connections to Kathmandu with layovers at their central hubs. Be cautious about long layovers; Qatar Airways is suggested for shorter layovers at Doha. Another option is flying via Delhi with airlines like British Airways, Air India, or Jet, followed by a shorter flight to Kathmandu. Pay attention to layover durations, and note that some reviews for Air India are less favorable. The cost of the Annapurna Circuit Trek is reasonable. The best time to hike the Annapurna Circuit corresponds with the peak trekking seasons to ensure optimal weather conditions.

Arrival (Free Airport Pickup): 

When planning the Annapurna Circuit trek, it’s essential to consider the cost, including permits, guides, and accommodations. Himalayan Masters offers a free airport pickup and drop-off service for guests who book the trek package. Upon arrival at Tribhuvan International Airport in Kathmandu, you’ll be greeted by our representative, who will hold a sign with your and our company names. They will welcome you with a garland and take you to your hotel in a private vehicle, ensuring you feel supported in a new country.

Where Annapurna Circuit Trek Start:

To start your trek, plan to arrive in Kathmandu one day earlier for last-minute preparations or an in-person briefing if you missed the online session. On the trek’s second day, your guide will pick you up early in the morning, and you’ll be driven to Bhulbhule via Besisahar. The package includes local transportation, and a private Jeep can be arranged for an extra cost if desired. The Annapurna Circuit trek cost varies based on duration, accommodations, and guided or solo trekking preferences. Hiking the Annapurna Circuit demands physical fitness, mental resilience, and a passion for exploration.

Typical Day on the Trail

Annapurna Circuit Trekking
Annapurna Circuit Trekking

The cost of the Annapurna Circuit trek may vary based on the trekking season and chosen accommodations. Each day on the trek offers a unique experience – walking through hills, enjoying the scenery, taking photos, and exploring villages. A Sherpa guide will share information and history while porters handle luggage. Days start with tea/coffee, followed by breakfast, and the walk begins around 7-8 AM. Lunch is after 3-4 hours of trekking, followed by a shorter afternoon walk of 2-3 hours. Evenings at lodges/tents allow for snacking, exploration, and dinner around 6-7 PM. Annapurna Circuit Expedition leaders brief about the next day’s plan, and guests engage in activities like games, reading, or learning Nepali words from the crew.

Electricity and Internet in Annapurna 

Throughout the Annapurna Trek circuit, lodges offer electricity for camera/mobile recharge at an extra cost. During the hiking of the Annapurna Circuit, lodges provide internet services for a fee, allowing contact with family and friends. At high altitudes, phones are used for communication. Himalayan Masters stays in touch with groups through trek guides daily. Network signals may vary at high altitudes, but you can obtain a local SIM card in Kathmandu for communication.

Luggage Information: 

When flying internally from Jomsom to Pokhara and Pokhara to Kathmandu, there’s a limit of 10kg for your duffle equipment bag that is carried by a porter. Another 5kg for your day sack is recommended. Airport staff will weigh your baggage, so staying within these limits is crucial. Porters can carry up to 15kg in the main bag during the trek, allowing for a slightly heavier load. However, for the flight out of Jomsom, you may need to transfer some items into your day sack to meet the weight restrictions.

Crossing Thorung La Pass: 

To cross Thorung La, the highest point on the Annapurna Circuit elevation at 5416 meters, you don’t need special skills – just fitness! It’s like climbing a mountain by walking up. The day starts early, before sunrise; guides set the pace to avoid going too fast. The path, though not too steep, challenges with thin air. Around 5000 meters, snow appears, adding an adventurous touch. The view of Annapurna Circuit Nepal turning pink during sunrise is magical. Reaching the pass is tough but rewarding, and with willpower, stamina, and a sense of adventure, anyone can do it.

Permits for Annapurna Circuit Trek: 

For the Annapurna Circuit trek, you need two permits. The TIMS (Trekkers Information Management System) costs NRS 2000 (about 17 USD or 15 EUR) and is essential for all trekkers in Nepal. The ACAP (Annapurna Conservation Area Project) Permit, costing Rs. 3000 (approximately USD 25), is mandatory for exploring Annapurna region routes. It supports wildlife and environmental conservation. These permits can be obtained in Kathmandu or Pokhara, with checkpoints along the trail to maintain trekking records.

Identifying and Preventing AMS: 

Altitude sickness (AMS) can affect anyone at high altitudes. Tools like the Lake Louise scorecard help monitor symptoms. A blood oxygen saturation meter is commonly used. AMS symptoms include headache, lack of appetite, breathing difficulties, insomnia, nausea, and vomiting. Severe cases can lead to High Altitude Pulmonary Edema (HAPE) or High-Altitude Cerebral Edema (HACE), requiring immediate descent. Prevent AMS with gradual ascent, staying hydrated, a balanced diet, rest, avoiding overexertion, and descending if symptoms persist. Understanding the Annapurna Circuit altitude is vital for a safe and enjoyable trekking experience.

Reviews

Himalayan Masters provided incredible services to guide and plan our trek in the Annapurna circuit. The team was incredibly organised and thoughtful, defining the experience as exceptional from the first day. The guides and porters spoke great English and supported us immensely throughout the challenging trek. A friend and I fell sick during the trek, and the whole team went above and beyond to not only satisfy any medical needs required but acted as a second family (quite needed in a foreign remote land thousands of kilometres away from home). Overall, I would highly recommend this company to anyone who wants to do a trek in Nepal, the team is awesome and accommodates your itinerary to suit your travel plans. Thank you, Sandip and Raj!

My name is Julia Wijaya from Indonesia, I went to Annapurna Circuit and 1D city tour (Bhaktapur and Kathmandu) on May 12 – 22 May 2023 with Sandip and Pradip as a guide and 6 porters (Robi, Elia, Suleman, Nikesh, Binot, Ram) so AMAZING I feel so blessed and grateful to have them. They always support & taking care of me in every detail and give me positive vibes. Especially when one of our members almost die because of altitude sickness, Sandip and all of the porters work so hard to take him down even though I know they are so tired but still put smiles on and good vibes.
The view of Annapurna is amazing especially when we take the upper road from Upper Pisang to Manang, thank you for letting us have a choice. Finally 9 from 11 people successful reach Thorong La.

About the accommodation is good, clean, comfortable, good food (you can choose anything you want) and very very good service from Pradhip and crew.
for transport, we choose to have a “Private Jeep” from Kathmandu to Chame and Mukhtinah to Pokhara and last day we take a “Tourist Bus” from Pokhara to Kathmandu.

This experience was worth the cost !!
I highly recommend Himalayan Masters because He is professional and passionate about the mountain. This trip was incredible 🙂 Thanks to everyone who made possible this unforgettable experience, I can’t make it without you guys!
This is my first time going to Nepal but not my last time 😎.

Julia wijayaIndonesia 🇮🇩

5 friends and I just completed the Annapurna circuit guided by the Himalayan masters team who essentially managed every part of our trip from start to finish. Before arriving in Nepal, Sandip had organised our entire itinerary and provided us with all the items we needed to prepare for the trip. Additionally, the team was very responsive to any questions we had in the lead up to the trip. Once we arrived, and throughout the course of the trek, the HM team were very organised and supportive. Their ability to successfully manage the itinerary and navigate any unexpected surprises (inevitable when travelling in Nepal) highlighted their expertise and experience. On top of this, they were incredibly lovely, warm and kind people. Definitely recommend!

Cooper LeeAustralia 🇦🇺

Thank God for this amazing trip, the Himalayan Masters crew were so good, especially Sandy. He leads the trip passionately and makes all of us enjoy it. The leader’s skill & the knowledge he got just completed the puzzle.

And not to forget the team he got, the guide, and the porters. They were so helpful to us along the journey. PK, Ram, Binot, Robi, Niken, Suleman, & Elia were amazing guys.

I hope he can learn from his mistakes & makes an improvement in the future.. good luck to you brother

Indra SIndonesia 🇮🇩
Our guides (Raj and Petombo) and porters (Arun, Beer and Nobo) were incredible and we could not have done the trip without them! The team were highly experienced and went above and beyond to ensure that our group of 6 from Australia were well taken care of. We had the best time because of them – highly recommend it!
Helen ShaoAustralia 🇦🇺
We took a trip to thorong la pass with Himalayan Masters. It was simply the best adventure in my life. The staff are very professional and fun! They are very strict with the time schedule and will do anything to make sure that you and ur team will make a successful and safe hiking/trekking trip.
Ivan TantraIndonesia 🇮🇩
Trekking with Himalayan Masters was an incredible trip that will be hard to beat. We did the Annapurna circuit over 10 days and the Himalayan Masters team was encouraging and patient with us making it a very enjoyable experience. For each meal, we were very well taken care of with great service from such a friendly team.
The price for the trip was very fair considering the amount of effort they put into catering to any of our needs. They went way above and beyond my expectations. When I come trekking again in Nepal I will definitely be going through Himalayan Masters again.
Madeleine CAustralia 🇦🇺

Hello, my name is Alexandra from Surabaya, Indonesia. My friends and I, a group of eleven people, have just finished our trek through the Annapurna Circuit arranged by Sandip from Himalayan Masters.

We really enjoyed the entire journey, and I would like to say that Himalayan Masters is truly professional. Sandip himself guided us and he is a hardworking person, providing us with the best service and taking care of each one of us. Plus, he is super funny! Although he can be a bit annoying at times, he’s a crazy man! 😂

Himalayan Masters made us feel not only like clients but also like a team. We truly appreciate everything they did to make this trip successful! Especially when one of my friends had a serious problem with AMS, all the team members, along with the guides and porters, were there to help!

Lastly, I would like to express my gratitude to the Himalayan Masters team: Sandip, the craziest young high-achieving entrepreneur, our lovely guide and founder of HM ✨️; Pradip, the most patient, calm, friendly, and responsive guide 🥰; Suleman, Ram, Roby, Pinot, Elia, and Nikes, our strong, friendly, and professional porters 😎

I am looking forward to travelling and hiking again to other Himalayan Mountains together with Himalayan Masters 😎

Alexandra RuthIndonesia 🇮🇩

Himalayan Masters created a memorable Annapurna Circuit adventure for our 11-person group and I recommend it if you want to have a customized trekking experience in the Himalayas.
We were impressed by their professionalism from the very first contact with the company

We love and really thankful to our guides (Sandip and Pradip) and the porters (Robi, Elia, Suleiman, Nikesh, Binot, Ram) who really welcome, treated us like their own family, and ensured that our needs and wishes were met every day – and beyond. This allowed us to focus on acclimating, enjoying and appreciating the whole experience.

Thank you Himalayan Masters Team for helping us fulfil a lifelong dream. See you on our next expedition!

Luce BoediarsoIndonesia 🇮🇩

I couldn’t speak more highly of the Himalayan Masters team over the time of our Annapurna Circuit trek. They are there for you from the very minute you arrive at the airport to the moment you are dropped off. Everything was organised so well prior and during the trip, and any troubleshooting was promptly addressed. The team were so caring and reassuring as a lot of the group had not done a trek like this before, and we appreciated all the laughs, knowledge and guidance we received along the way. Would highly recommend Himalayan Masters if you are looking for the full experience whilst trekking around Nepal, it was such a special trip.

FAQs

What is the best season for the Annapurna Circuit Trek?

Although the Annapurna trail trek is possible throughout the year, trekking in Autumn and Spring is recommended. The temperature of Annapurna from October- September, and March-May is quite warm (about 15 degrees Celsius in the daytime).

The views in the winter are very spectacular; regions above 3500 meters are primarily covered in the rain. However, trekking in winter can be pretty challenging, and crossing Throng La is not recommended.

In Summer, i.e. June/ July, the lower region is slippery. However, once you get to the semi-arid region close to the mountains, the impact of rainfall is not seen. It would help if you very had excellent preparation for the summer trek of Annapurna trail.
