Annapurna Circuit Trekking - 21 Nights/ 22 Days)

Annapurna Circuit trekking has been recognized as one of the World's best trekking trails according to a survey by Modern Maturity (USA). This is a dramatic trek around the mighty Annapurna range, a journey that is regarded as one of the top ten walks in the world.

Annapurna circuit trekking range offers a unique insight into the physical and cultural diversity of Nepal. This lodged-based trekking is certainly a 'classic' and is enjoyed by trekkers from all round the world.

Annapurna Circuit TrekkingAnnapurna circuit trekking was opened for foreign trekkers in 1977. This trekking is renowned as one of the most spectacular and varied walks in the world with lush green valleys and fascinating villages that offers impressive snow-capped views of the white Himalayas. Starting from less than 1,000 meters, it gives us a chance to explore the Himalayas from bottom to top and from many different angles and perspectives.

Our well design Annapurna circuit trekking itinerary completes the Circuit with a few new variations that will enhance this magnificent trek. From Kathmandu we travel to the road-head at Besishahar and then start the Annapurna Circuit trekking. The trek follows the Marsyangdi River through rice paddies, terraced fields and Hindu villages under the shadow of the Annapurna and Manaslu ranges. As we ascend, the valley becomes narrower, waterfalls plummet from high above, and the scenery gains a rugged alpine appearance.

The highest point of the Annapurna Circuit trekking is Thorong La pass at the top of the valley at 5,416m/17,765ft high. Due to the difficulties of crossing the pass, the circuit is usually walked in a counter clockwise direction. Traveling anti clockwise the longer ascent and shorter descent from west to east is too much for many people to manage in one day.

As we trek north of the Great Himalayan Divide there is a dramatic change as we enter the stark landscape of the Tibetan Plateau where the culture becomes predominantly Buddhist.

We then head back down the great Kali Gandhaki Valley, said to be one of the deepest gorges on earth with Annapurna and Dhaulagiri towering some 7,000 metres.

Our experience local guide will take you revised route along the Valley to avoid road being built between Muktinath to Kalopani. In this section of our trek now detours to follow footpaths through pretty villages away from the road, but returns to the traditional circuit villages for overnight lodge stays.

Mountain Sherpa is the best travel company i’ve travelled with...

“ My wife and I and our two adult children travelled for a month in Nepal with Mountain Sherpa Trekking in the fall of 2008. It was the holiday of a lifetime. Once we had decided to go with Mountain Sherpa Trekking, all our questions and concerns were responded to by Pasang with dispatch. They seemed very professional, and, they proved to be that, and more. We were treated like kings, like visiting dignitaries. Family could not have treated us better. Upon our arrival, we were garlanded with marigolds; upon our departure, silk scarves were draped around our necks. ”

said Glenn Miller and Family, Canada
