The Annapurna Circuit Trek stands out as the most renowned trekking circuit in Nepal. With some of the tallest mountains on the planet, cascading glaciers, and a remarkable variety of landscapes, this trek encapsulates the essence of trekking in Nepal. It takes more than two weeks to complete, with charming tea houses for accommodation.

What sets the Annapurna Circuit apart? It's the perfect fusion of culture, adventure, and wilderness. Along the route, you'll pass through serene Hindu and Buddhist villages with impressive gompas, stupas, and mani stones. As you ascend, the surrounding mountains become more rugged. The absolute highlight of this trek is reaching Thorung La, standing at 5416 meters, making it one of the world's highest trekking passes. Towards the end of the journey, you can relax in the Tatopani hot springs and ascend Poon Hill, offering breathtaking views of the Annapurna Massif.



Drive to Bhulbhule

Our trekking guide will come to pick you up at your hotel about 7 AM in the morning, we then drive along the Kathmandu-Pokhara highway to Dumre and then follow the narrow and paved road by the Marsyangdi River to Besisahar. We then drive to Bhulbhule where you will spend the night at an hotel.



Trek to Chamje

Duration: 08:00 h
Distance: 21.5 km
Ascent: 1000 m
Descent: 460 m
After breakfast we start trekking to Chamje. This will take us about 7-8 hours. The trail goes flat for the first part then climbs steeply. The path is cut into the sheer cliff-face some 200-300m above the riverbed. Eventually we descend to the stone village of Jagat (1330m) situated on a shelf which juts into the precipitous Marsyangdi valley. Here the trail goes up and down to Chamje through the forests.



Trek to Bagarchhap

Duration: 06:20 h
Distance: 14.3 km
Ascent: 980 m
Descent: 240 m
As we move past narrow and steep valleys, through rhododendron, pine and bamboo forests, in the rocky folds of a mountain, we come across a bridge that takes us to a quick ascent and finally atop a climb to reveal a widening valley. After reaching the village of Tal, we have to move across barley, wheat and potato farms for a while before we reach Dharapani. From there we turn west through the fir and pine forests to reach Bagarchhap.
