  • Trip introduction

    Trek across the mountain slopes and overgrown forests of the Annapurna Conservation Area on this 15-day Annapurna Circuit trek. In the shadows of the 26,000 feet tall Mt. Annapurna, you'll trek past awe-inspiring views of towering Himalayan peaks like Dhaulagiri, Chulu, Nilgiri, Manaslu and many more. Trekking past small and lively villages like Manang and Marpha, settled by ethnic natives, you'll visit local monasteries and spend your nights at quaint tea-houses.

    Another highlight of the trek, you'll climb up to over 17,700 feet to cross the high altitude Thorang-La Pass. Descending on the other side of the glacial pass, you'll visit the town of Mukinath, site of the famous Hindu pilgrimage.

    Destination

    This trek takes you in the deep, alpine wilderness of the Annapurna Conservation Area. Entering these protected forests from the eastern side, you'll follow the upstream course of the Marsyangdi River as it speeds down from higher glaciers in the Annapurna range. The circuit route proceeds deeper through the Manang valley, past the Thorang-La Pass, to end in the Mustang valley. You exit the Annapurna Conservation area from the southern side.

    The Annapurna Circuit trek is another one of Nepal's classic tea-house treks, where travellers stay in basic lodges instead of needing to camp in the outdoors.
