About Annapurna Circuit Trekking

Annapurna Circuit Trekking is famous the world over and for good reason! This trek has a well-deserved reputation for its staggering beauty including mountain views, wide biodiversity and cultural highlights experienced along the journey and all this is included in the Annapurna base camp trek package. This wondrous trekking in Annapurna around the Annapurna range takes trekkers through lush lowlands on up to alpine highlands surrounded by the snowy Himalaya.

The gradual rise from the hills allows for proper acclimatization to altitude on the way up to the highlands. Eventually, the scenic trails arrive at majestic mountain surroundings with up-close views of the Himalaya.

The Annapurna Circuit Trek or the Abc trek includes some of the best mountain scenery in the world. Along with this iconic trek, we can enjoy a wider range of biodiversity and topography than almost any other area of the Himalaya. Along the way, we will have memorable views of lofty peaks that soar into the blue skies.

The Annapurna Circuit Trekking follows along two major river valleys and makes a counter-clockwise journey. Our Annapurna Circuit Trek starts after a scenic drive through terraced farmland to the pleasant town of Besisahar. The drive takes half of a day and then our trekking begins as we follow the Marsyangdi River valley through charming villages and rural farmland with terraced paddy fields. We pass astonishingly landscape and visit a riverside hot springs on the way up to the highland settlements of Braga and Manang.

The Annapurna base camp trek itinerary is designed in such a way, that from here we take a suitable pace for adequate acclimatization to the high elevation as we make our way up to and over the thrilling high pass known as the Thorang La (5,416m, 17,769ft). We savor the achievement of reaching the desolate pass and then make our way into a completely different Himalayan valley of the Kali Gandaki River.

The ABC Trek is in a way that we descend through a more wondrous landscape with different cultural traditions as we follow the Kali Gandaki River to the south. This route includes the deepest gorge on the planet along an ancient trade route with Tibet.

From the Annapurna Circuit Trekking route, the majestic mountain scenery includes Annapurna I, (8,091 m, 26,545ft) 10th highest mountain on the planet and first peak over 8,000 m to have ever been summited (reached by a French team in 1950). Additional mountain peaks viewed include Dhaulagiri, (8,167 m, 26,7795ft), world’s 7th  highest, Manaslu, (8,163 m, 26,781ft), world’s 8th highest, and Machhapuchhre, 6,993m (22,943ft), a sacred mountain off-limits to mountaineering.

There is a lot to explore along the Annapurna Circuit trek including sacred caves, hot springs, alpine lakes, and magnificent monasteries. For the Annapurna base camp trek cost just contact us now and get great offers on the package.

Please Note: Our Annapurna Circuit Trekking has set departure dates from both Pokhara and Kathmandu and this trek can be personalized to accommodate your specific wishes and timetable. We can arrange a shorter version of the 21-day Annapurna Circuit Trek and often travelers like to combine both the Annapurna Circuit Trek and the Annapurna Base Camp Trek.

Useful Information


All the accommodation as per the itinerary is included in the package cost. We have chosen the 2/3 star hotel in the cities for your comfort and safety. The hotels can be upgraded to more deluxe ones upon your request. While trekking in the Mountain, our guides will choose the best available lodge of the village from their past experience. As some villages have limited number of lodges, in a peak season like in Spring and Autumn, you may have to share the room with some stranger trekker as well. Comfortable two men tent with mattress and four seasons sleeping bag will be provided for the camping trek. Our crew will try to set the camp in a scenic place. All the hotel and camping accommodations are as per twin sharing basis unless you are of different gender.


Nepal is such an easy place to get several vegetarian options so no worries if you are a vegetarian or vegan. You can enjoy typical Nepali food as well as continental, Italian, Indian and Tibetan. Freshly cooked and hygienic dinner and breakfast are served at the camp and lunch will be served on the way to the next destination which will be prepared by our own chef. Only breakfast is served in Kathmandu whilst farewell dinner on the eve of your international departure is served from our side. All the meals (B/L/D) are on full board basis during the trek.

Trekking Crew

An experienced and licensed Guide and necessary porters will assist you during the trek. In a group with more than 8 clients, 2 guides will be provided for the betterment in service. In a teahouse trek, generally, one porter is provided for every two clients who carry between 15 to 20 kg. However, on a camping journey, more porters are required. All the camping equipment such as kitchen, dining, dome and toilet tents, kitchen equipment, fuel, and all consumable goods has to be carried from Kathmandu which needs more manpower. All of our guides and porters are fully insured so you don't' have to worry about them in case of emergency. Our team believes that our customer care is the first priority.

Physical Fitness and Experience

Annapurna Circuit Trek is a strenuous trek which is fit for those who has the ability to walk 5-6 hours of walking uphill and downhill in a day carrying the personal day pack. Some days are longer with 7- 8 hours of walking as well. Annapurna Circuit Trek is high altitude trek which demands more physical, however having strong determination, positive vibe and average physical fitness can complete this trek. Some time mental aspect also plays a vital roll in an altitude. Doing some physical exercise a few weeks prior to the trip is better but technical skill is not required for this trek. If you are taking medicine for heart, lung or blood diseases, please kindly consult your doctor and inform to High Camp Adventure.

Travel Insurance

This is a real adventure in high altitude so obtaining a travel insurance is always a good idea for your safety and is highly recommended too. Your travel insurance policy should cover helicopter evacuation and medical expenses in an emergency. There is not any Nepalese insurance company to sell travel insurance policy so you better buy the good one from home. There are some insurance policies which covers only in low altitude below 4000 mt. and some only in high altitude above 4000 mt. So before you purchase it, please double check the policy what it covers and where are you going.

Best Seasons

Spring (March to May) and Autumn (September to November) are the best months for Annapurna Circuit Trek. Where normally days are sunny, the temperature is perfect, the sky is clear and Mountain remains crystal. This trek can be done in Monsoon (June to August ) but you should not expect the great weather and Mountain view.  You can do it in Winter (December to February) if you are used to with extreme cold temperature.

Ground Transportation

Highway in Nepal is safe, however, sometimes transport can be halted due to landslide, strike or by political unrest. Add a cushion of a few extra days in your onward travel schedule, advised as a margin of safety for your international flight from Nepal. We, therefore, advise that you schedule at least an extra days cushion in your itinerary to avoid conflicts with international flights out of Nepal. In that case, High Camp Adventure can arrange activities with your additional days in Kathmandu before your flight home.
