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.

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.

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.

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.

December 10, 2019

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!
