For adventure lovers, Annapurna Circuit Trek is one of the majority hiking in Nepal.  It leads you to the prevalent zone of the Annapurna Region.

Unlike other adventure hikes in Nepal, it is the most flexible trail. Because if you are strongly fit, you can do this trail within 7 days from Kathmandu to Kathmandu though it requires 2 weeks time(normally 11 days is needed for beginners hikers). In fact, this route is a naturally, culturally as well as religious trial.

The journey passes encountering several suspension bridges, enjoying pristine waterfalls, glaciers, several Mani walls, Gompas, apple orchids, getting the Himalayan hospitality, passing several Monasteries, and the popular temple of Muktinath.

Not only these, but you shall also walk via the base of the Himalayas passing several terraced farmlands and rocky areas having the magnificent close-up views of several peaks there around.

Throughout the journey, you will get a lifetime experience while passing Thorong-La (5416m)-one of the highest and the widest passes of the world. Moreover getting the picturesque views of Annapurna I, Annapurna II, Annapurna III, Annapurna IV, Nilgiri, Thorong Peak, Dhaulagiri, Tukuche is breathtaking. The next advantage of this trip is to explore the deepest gorge of the world-Kali Gandaki gorge.

This trek is considered a moderately difficult trek and the most antique trek. It contains quite developed hiking routes throughout Nepal. As most of the trek occurs in the Alpine zone, you get Tibetan flavor in the forms of culture, religion, and way of living.

This trek is regarded as the most demanded trek in terms of duration and desire of the guests. We can finish this trek within 10 days and extend it up to 21 days. This trip is divided into two types.

Modern Annapurna Circuit

This trip begins from Syange- Lumjung passing the settlements as Ta, Dharapani, Chame, Mananga, Thorong La, Muktinath and finishes at Jomsom- Mustang which takes 10 to 12 days to be finished. You have choices either to fly or drive from Jomsom.

Classical Annapurna Circuit

This amazing journey begins at Besisahar, the administrative headquarter of Lamjung district, and ends at Beni, the district headquarter of Myagdi district. It completely takes 21 commercial days to be completed. In the past, due to the inconvenience of the road and everything, the trekkers used to walk peacefully. Because of the road and other convenience, people prefer to shorten the trek.
