Annapurna circuit trek is one of the longest and most exciting treks that offers different variations and trekking experience in one go. The trek follows the Annapurna route throughout the journey and is a complete package of several other treks around the Annapurna region. The trek rises to an altitude of 5,416m on the Thorong La pass, touching the edge of the Tibetan plateau. This trek crosses two different river valleys and encircles the Annapurna massif, crossing Thorong La (5416m/17769 ft), the highest pass on this trek. The trek begins at Besisahar in the Marshyangdi river valley and concludes in the Kali Gandaki Gorge.

The trek starts from Besisahar and moves through many villages and human settlement areas. The ever-expanding terraced fields and landscapes offer you the best experience along with magnetic glimpses of Himalayan peaks. Walking through the village areas, we also get a chance to enjoy the traditional and unique culture of Brahmins, Tibetan, Thakali and Gurung community. Several monasteries, gompas, and Chortens decorated with colorful Buddhist flags during our journey reflects the people’s inclination towards Buddhist religion. You get to know the traditional culture and way of life of remote Nepalese people. The brightly colored and well-kept tea houses and restaurants are found along the way where you can get good rest and enjoy the traditional Nepalese cuisine.

Another interesting place we visit on this trek is Muktinath and Poon Hill. Muktinath (God of Salvation) is one of the religious places in Nepal, where devotees throng from all over Nepal. The place is equally famous as a tourist destination. The 108 water sprouts and abundant fossils found in this area make it very special for the tourists and religious people. And from the top of Poon Hill, you get to view the exquisite panoramic beauty of the Annapurna range with a view of the Peaks like Mount Annapurna, Hiunchuli, and many others.

Apart from these places we visit in this circuit trek, the striking natural beauty with a magnificent close-up view of the mountain, the ever-expanding vast landscapes, valleys, gorges, waterfalls, passes and hot water springs make this trek the famous and most sought treks in Nepal.

  • The beautiful mountain peaks like Mount Annapurna, Tilicho peak, Gangapurna and many others accompany you throughout the trek.

    Trekking the Annapurna Circuit through Nepal Ascent Treks has been one of the most unique and fantastic trips of my life. Even though we trekked during monsoon season when trailed are expected to be plagued by clouds and heavy rains, we got some great opportunities to see the mountains and other incredible views .Bale our guide was a great asset during the trek. He always knew where to go for the best food, best views and provided some much needed humor during long or cloudy days. Overall, the trek was a great experience and I will definitely be coming back to Nepal in the near future.
