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.

So, Where exactly Is Annapurna?

wheres exactly is annapurna circuit trek

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 Circuit 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 headquarter 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.

How Long Is The Annapurna Circuit Trek?

The Annapurna Circuit trek distance is between 160 and 200 kilometres (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, it 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.

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.



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!

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!

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.

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.

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 😎

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!

I had a great adventure during this expedition. The first plan is to go to EBC but during the bad weather, there is no flight to Lukla. During dalbhat lunch, Sandip helped us to change our route: ACT. We hiked into many kinds of treks, all of them are very beautiful. Sandip, PK, and Binot helped us a lot and nurtured us with all our conditions. Thank you, Himalayan Masters!

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

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 🇮🇩
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!

What is the best season for the Annapurna Circuit Trek?

Although the Annapurna Circuit 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.
