For adventure lovers, Annapurna Circuit Trek is one of the best challenging trekking in Nepal.  It leads you to the prevalent zone of the Annapurna Region. Depending on your fitness level and preferences, this hiking can be done from 1 week to 3 weeks.

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

Overview of Annapurna Circuit Trekking

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 13 days is needed for beginners hikers). In fact, this route is a naturally, culturally as well as religious rich 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 magnificent close-up views of several peaks there around.

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.

Can I do A.C Solo?

A.C is a high-altitude trek. You need a local person with you to minimize risk. It means even if you don’t want to take trekking packages, you can hire a guide/Porter. So I recommend don’t do the solo trek.

Expect winter time( Mid December to the beginning of February) it is best to go the Annapurna Circuit trek. If you don’t care about the crowd on the route, it is best to do it either from September to December or March to April. But if you like a less crowded route, you should try some weeks prior to or after these 2 busy seasons.

Annapurna Circuit Trekking Reviews

Great company, great service

Rated 5 out of 5

We had planned to visit Nepal but because of Covid, we postponed it. But eventually, we did it.

My friend and I booked Annapurna Circuit Hiking 17 day trek at Base Camp Hike. Jayaram provided us a guide, his name is Kamal. The guide was very pleasant, caring and super informed. Book Trekking with Base Camp Hike and ask for Guide Kamal. Next time, we will come for Maklu Base Camp Trekking and will use again Kamal and his company.

Annapurna Circuit Trekking 2022

Rated 5 out of 5

I completed the Annapurna Circuit, in April 2022, with BASE CAMP HIKE and had the most magical time. Base Camp Hike arranged everything perfectly – accommodations, transport from the airport, meals, etc. The service that they provided me was incredible. I couldn’t recommend them highly enough.

I had guide Rajesh and he has great humor and Kindness. He took care of me perfectly during the whole trekking period.

Rajesh was kind, understanding and knowledgeable. He found us the best tea houses to stay in and explained the local environment and culture.

He adapted the itinerary depending on how I was feeling as the trip developed. Perhaps the greatest compliment I can pay to Rajesh is the always made me feel safe. Hiking above 4,500m isn’t easy, but Rajesh was a constant reassurance – checking in on any symptoms and ensuring everything went smoothly.

The Annapurna Circuit trekking was breathtaking, really BEAUTIFUL. Around every corner, there was another above 6000 meter mountain. Once in a lifetime experience!!!

With Base Camp Hike you can do it!

Rated 5 out of 5

I did the Annapurna Circuit trek in September 2019. I am in my 60-ties and was afraid whether can complete this trek which includes the pass at 5416 m. But with Base Camp Hike I managed to did it easily! They arranged all my permits and provide me very professional and friendly guide Kamal who took care of me while on the trek. I can fully recommend BCH – they are professional, responsible, and helpful when planning the trek. They are also flexible: can provide any type of service starting from all-included to hiring a guide only (I have chosen the latter option which means that I needed to pay all my expenses on the trek and transport for the guide). Thanks, BCH for my amazing holidays.

Amazing Annapurna Circuit Trek

Rated 4 out of 5

We did the Annapurna circuit trek under the perfect supervision of our guide Jayaram and Depender as a porter. We spend 11 nights in the mountains and were lucky with the weather in May. Jayaram arranged everything perfectly including AirPort pick-up, hotels and even every night fresh fruit. Very caring guide with eye for detail/service. I would recommend if you are planning your Annapurna trip!
