Annapurna Circuit Trek is a whole trek; it is your trek; it is the trek that the National Geographic has enlisted as the world’s best. It is not an extraordinary trek but a compound trek in which you come across all the types of landscapes that the general and advanced trekkers are looking for. Annapurna Circuit Trek gives the best trekking experience by combining all of its major highlights and starts from the City of Temple and takes you to Besisahar at the beginning. This is also a cultural trek in which you dive to know the unknown, seen only in this part of Nepal and has forms that you don’t hesitate to accept. The unique thing about the Annapurna Circuit Trek is its trekking trail that enters into the Manang Region, by which you reach its heartland, amidst the richness of Manangis’ culture. Yet classical trek, some of its trekking trails are motorable and dusty; Americans, Canadians, and British like this trek, and you see them in the lodge. After the Everest Base Camp Trek, this is the trek that is searched most on Google.
Its trekking trail shows you the beautiful scenery that will appeal to you times without number, creates an everlasting memory, and entices you to press the button of your camera. You will find hard to resist temptation. Its trekking trail not only confines to the unparalleled natural beauties, but also embraces Muktinath, the pilgrim of the religious significance to the Hindus, the Buddhists, and the Jains, before this, it takes you to the highest pass of the Annapurna Region which is adventurous and challenging. It also takes you to a rural area which is so in comparison to your city; there the comfort is only an imagination. The incredible beauty of the towering mountains like Annapurna (8091m), Dhaulagiri (8167m), and Manaslu (8156m) coexist with your trekking trail in a way you want, and this unusual experience adds a climax to your sensory and stays on the back of your mind forever.
In Kathmandu, you are going to stay at the 3-star category hotel (Value). During trekking, you will spend your night in a tea house. The tea house is a lodge or a guest house. The tea house is an old name for a lodge because trekkers and climbers gave this name 40 years ago. After all, it used to sell only tea then. Now they also sell meals as well as provide bedrooms for the trekkers and climbers. The old name tea house is still used by the trekking agencies in Nepal. Hence, the name tea house trek. Tea house differs from village to village where you are going to spend your night. Some have attached bathrooms as well as running a hot water facility, while others have only basic facilities, that is, you have to share a toilet and a bathroom with others. This is so because they are located in a high altitude and the remotest area. Some provide dormitory-style accommodation, but they also provide you a bed, a pillow, a blanket, and a bedsheet still, you must have your sleeping bag.

Welcome to Kathmandu, the city of temples, you can call it the most developed city of Nepal as of now, and it is here, where we are located to serve you in a way you want right from TRIBHUWAN INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT, where you can see us waiting for you with our TRAVEL MAX GUIDE SIGNBOARD, and your name so that you can spot us at once, and you will be taken to your hotel in a vehicle or to our office where you can ask us questions, having tea or coffee, after all these activities, if you have time, then there is nothing better than spending your time in Thamel, the tourist hub which is just outside the door of our office, you ask us, what you want to eat, what you want to enjoy, we will show you that the tourist like you most desired in a new place.
On the way, you will pass through towns, villages, and beautiful landscapes. There are also terraced farmland and rivers. After some pretty long hours, you will reach Beshisahar. You then take a local jeep from Beshisahar to Jagat. This drive gives you some insight into the rural people their lifestyle and their culture. From Jagat, you begin your trek. It will be a new experience to drive on the public bus in Nepal. When you reach Jagat, you will find yourself in a typical countryside.
The up trekking trail that lies before you take you to the traditional and beautiful villages. Some parts of this trail are rocky, and these are also the parts that run by the Marsayangdi River. This is one of the important rivers of Nepal. From this river, you head to Tal which is the first village of Manang district. Enter the stone gate that has “Welcome to the Manang district”. You will see the sandy valley floor. Tal lies on the bank of the river surrounded by the lush hills. On the way, there are suspension bridges, waterfalls, up trekking trail, villages, and the Marsyangdi River. You will be walking on a motorable road, and this is a dusty road. Between them, there are stone cliffs. After crossing these cliffs, you head to Kharte and Dharapani. This last village is the source of information to the people who want to study the Tibetan Culture in detail.
Before you reach Chame, you come across a wooden bridge, and you will follow the decision of your guide who says which trail is the best. On the way, you will see the spectacular view of the waterfall, and you will also walk in a beautiful forest. Later you will reach Tamang village. You will be walking uphill most of the time. On the way, you will see the spectacular view of the mountains like Lamjung Himal, Annapurna II, and Annapurna IV. You will also come across a hot spring where you can dip before you reach Chame.
As you trek in a steep and narrow trekking trail, that is, switchback, you reach a dense forest, and you will see the best view of the mountains. You will not take one photo, but hundreds. There, you see a dramatic rock face. There is also a vertical rock on the way. After this rock, you see the Paungda Danda, a massive sloping rock face that rises over 5,000ft (1500m). You are in the Marshyangdi Valley, and as you come out of it, you will see the stunning view of the mountains Like Annapurna and Pisang. You will reach the Upper Pisang via a village called Geru.
Although the upper trekking trail is difficult, the view that you see is incredible. Today, it is all about walking uphill. You will walk on a switchback most of the time to reach the top of the hill. You can buy apples on the way and see the horse and ponies. Here, the air is thinner. You will also be in the region which is dry. This is so because of the Annapurna Ranges. You will see these ranges blocking the monsoon. Looking at the ranges, you head to Ngawal. Looking at the elevation, Manang is lower than Ngawal. The down trekking trail takes you to the Marsyangdi valley. On the way, there are rocks sculpted by the wind as well as pine trees that have slowed to growth. But the view of the Annapurna Ridge is beautiful, and it will capture your eyes frequently. There, the climate is cold, so you see less vegetation. On the way, you will come across the largest monastery of Manang that is called Braga which you will visit. On the way, you will also see the stunning view of nature, including that of Annapurna and Pisang mountains.
This is a must for today’s activity because you are ascending to a higher altitude tomorrow. Rest or acclimatization does not mean staying in one place. You can use it to walk to interesting places, interact with people, learn about their culture and tradition, their way of living, and enjoy the local cuisines. Hike to either Bojo Gumba, a monastery or Gangapurna Lake.
Today, you will follow a trekking trail that will take you to the Marshyangdi Valley, and from here. you head to another destination. En route, there are streams and a village named Tangki. You cross the Jarsang Khola, a river. Following the uphill trekking trail, you walk through the pasture and walk by juniper trees. You will also reach a village named Ghunsang (3900m) where you will see flat mud roofed houses. You also reach a meadow, and from there head to Yak Kharka, a small village. Before reaching this village, you pass by mani walls.
Today also it is an uphill walking, but this walking is the most difficult walk of the Annapurna Circuit because you are heading to the higher elevation and spend a night at Thorong Phedi which means the base of the Thorong La Pass as well as it is a village. To reach the base, you have to cross a suspension bridge and reach a village called Ledar (4200m). You have to reach the top of the pass known as the Thorong La Pass tomorrow. From there, you can see the stunning view of Mt. Gundang, Mt. Syagang, Thorung Peak, Mt. Khatungkang, and others.
This is the highest altitude of the Annapurna Circuit Trek, that is, you are at the Thorong La Pass (5,416m). From this pass, you head to Muktinath, and on the way, you come across the area that is heavily covered with snow which might stumble you. But this walk is rewarding because it leads you to the top of the pass. When you reach the top, you will see the stunning view of the mountains. To ascend this pass, you have to start early in the morning before the sun rises.
Muktinath is the place of religious significance to the Hindus, Buddhists, and Jains. You see the devotees coming from India. There, you also see the temple of Vishnu and a Gompa, a monastery. From there, you head to the Lubra Pass for the incredible view. From the top of the pass, you descend to Marpha to spend a night via villages like Ranipauwa, and Jomsom. Marpha is also famous for apples all over Nepal. You can also enjoy the local apple brandy of Marpha.
As you walk further, you come across many traditional villages. These are the villages of the Thakali people. Here, you will see apple orchards. Also, you will see the panoramic view of Dhaulagiri, Tukuche, Nilgiri, Fang, and Annapurna I. These are the famous mountains of the Annapurna Region. From there, you trek downhill to Kokhethanti and walk on a motorable road to reach Kalopani.
The downhill trekking trail awaits to take you to Tatopani which means hot water in Nepali. There are bridges, subtropical forests, waterfalls, and powerhouse on the way. There are also bigger villages you will see. By the time, you reach Tatopani, you are tired. You can relax by dipping into a hot spring. Before you reach Tatopani, you walk through villages like Ghasa, Kopchepani, Gadpar, Dana, and also pass the waterfall called Rupse Chhahara.
You head from the low elevation to the high elevation. You leave the Kali Gandaki River and head to the Ghar Khola valley (1170m). The trekking trail takes you to the terraced farmland and shows the mountains. There are villages named Shikha and Chitre before you reach a beautiful rhododendron forest. From the forest, you walk uphill to Ghorepani which shows the spectacular view of Dhaulagiri, the seventh highest mountain in the world, including the Annapurna Ranges.
Poon Hill is a viewpoint, and it is incomparable because it offers a rewarding and panoramic view of the mountains, including Dhaulagiri, Annapurna, and Fishtail. After this, you head to Tadapani walking uphill and downhill, in the forest, and on the rocky steps.
The downhill trekking trail takes you to Ghandruk, another highlight of the Ghorepani Trek. When you reach Ghandruk, you will see the stunning view of Annapurna South and Fish Tail as well as you will visit its museum where you will have rich information on Gurung Culture and Tradition. By following a more down trekking trail, which is easy, you will reach Kimche and then to Nayapul. You can take the public bus from Kimche or either you can trek down to Nayapul. You head to Pokhara either on a jeep or a bus.
Today, you will drive from Pokhara. As you head from The City Of Lakes to the City Of Temples, the scenery changes from lush forest to less vegetation area. Cross the rivers, streams, and pass through the scenic view of hilly landscapes. You will check-in the hotel. In the evening, you will have a farewell dinner in a typical Nepali restaurant, seeing the Nepali dance.

I was in Nepal for the Everest Base Camp Trek. Outstanding sceneries and good hospitality. On the way to the base camp, I got an opportunity to visit Bthe uddhist monastery as well as got some information about Buddhism. That was great. Our guide and porter were awesome. Very kind and helpful. Thank you, TMG.
Trekking with Travel Max Guide was an amazing experience. My selection of a trip and the company were excellent and of a right decision. In each moment of my walk, I came across adventure and discovered something new. I remember my first step on the Everest Base Camp. The view was spectacular. Passing through the Sherpa communities and staying in Namche Bazaar is unforgettable. I miss the trip very much. Anyway, thank you so much for your service while I was in Nepal. See you next time for the Annapurna Circuit Trek.
Originally from the United State of America from the city of Los Angeles where life is busy and rush. I made a trip with TMG. It’s a new experience than I excepted. I found Nepalese people really welcoming. They really love tourists. While trekking in the Everest region, I got time to spend with nature, gained plenty of ideas of culture and tradition from the Himalayas. The trip was totally mind-blowing. TMG has a good team spirit and is dedicated to serving guest and trekkers.
