    Spend two weeks trekking in the shadows of the mighty Annapurna mountains and truly experience the Himalayas in all its glory. You'll climb up to an altitude of over 17,700 feet to cross the Thorang-La pass. You'll trek through the night to catch sunrise views of the Annapurna range from Poon Hill. You'll hike to the sacred temples of Muktinath, an important pilgrimage for Hindus and Buddhists.

    Throughout the 14-day trek, you'll be in awe of sacred Himalayan peaks from Mt. Manaslu, Mt. Annapurna II, Mt. Dhaulagiri and several more. You'll spend days hiking over mountainous trails, through dense woods of oak and pine. At night, you'll stay in basic lodges at quaint, hillside villages vibrantly painted in Buddhist culture with monasteries and prayer flags.

    NOTE: Price displayed is per person price for a booking of two travellers.

    Destination

    The Annapurna Circuit trek, arguably one of the most rewarding treks in Nepal, showcases everything that the Annapurna mountains have to offer, from goosebump-inducing views of high peaks to overgrown thickets of rhododendron and fir. You'll enter the Annapurna Conservation Area from the east at the village of Chame, and follow the upstream course of the Marsyangdi River as it cuts across the valley. You'll cross the Thorang-La pass and begin trekking south at the village of Kagbeni. The trek ends as you exit the Annapurna Conservation Area at the village of Biretanthi and reach the city lights of Pokhara.
