Welcome to Annapurna Circuit Trek

The walk passes picturesque villages home to Gurungs, Manangis and Thakalis, offers spectacular mountain views of the numerous 7000m-plus Annapurna peaks and boasts some of the best trekking lodges in Nepal.

Our best tip for this trek is to remember that the side trips and excursions from places like Manang, Muktinath and Jomsom rank as the highlights of the trek. It’s well worth adding a couple of days to explore some of these trails. You’ll be better acclimatised for the pass and you’ll manage to shake some of the crowds. This is not scenery to rush through.
