Annapurna Circuit Trek

Duration: 21 Days   |  2 Reviews

Annapurna Circuit Trek is a 200-mile journey and is considered one of the world’s classic walks, with incredible mountain scenery, cultural diversity, and variety of flora and fauna, this trek is often quoted as a ‘near heaven experience. ‘Adventure Club Trek has designed this Annapurna Circuit Trek-21 day to fit the best routes with the best scenes while still giving you enough time to acclimatize.

We start the trek from Marsyangdi Valley and climb all the way to Thorong La Pass (5,416m/17,769ft), the highest and most challenging pass of the circuit. The hardship is all worth it as you get to see the stunning spread of mountains in this part of the Himalaya.

Along the way, you will see paddy fields, waterfalls, sub-tropical forest, massive cliffs and many friendly villages. We also pass by Kali Gandaki, the world’s deepest gorge, which flows between Annapurna (8091m) on the east and Dhaulagiri (8167m) on the west. Throughout the journey, you get to witness spectacular views of many mountains like Mt. Machhapuchhre(6,993m), Gangapurna(7,455), Manaslu(8,156m), Annapurna I, II, III and IV, and Tilicho peak(7,134m) among others.

We also get to visit Manang where you get to experience the lifestyle and livelihood of the local people, a place influenced by Tibetan culture. Also, you can make a stop at Multipath in Mustang, a temple for Hindus as well as Buddhists.This 21-day-long trek around the Annapurna circuit gives you an experience like never before, but, for those looking for shorter options, Adventure Club Trek also has other treks in the region, like Ghorepani Poon Hill Trek-9 days, Annapurna Circuit Short Trek-14 days,Annapurna Base Camp Trek short-12 days, and Annapurna Base Camp Trek-14 days. For the travelers who want to make the Annapurna Circuit trek more challenging, we have the Annapurna Circuit Trek with Tilicho Lake Trek-21 days which would be a more appropriate choice.

    Highly recommend ... Birendra and his team fantastic

    Rating:

    Thanks to Birendra for his great knowledge and assistance in getting our trek itinerary together after having to change regions due to accessibility. Always open and honest we were able to tailor our trek as needed for our own group of four people. And our guide Sonam, with Norbu and Manlama as our team, who looked after us all the way in a professional and relaxed manner, making sure we were OK with acclimatisation, ensuring everything ran smoothly, and providing flexibility if we decided to change our trek itinerary. A truly amazing experience with the people and places of Nepal. We wanted to choose a locally run company for our trek and found a winner in Adventure Club!

    Great experience

    Rating:

    wow , what a great experience we had . I went to Nepal with my Daughter and her boyfriend not knowing what to expect, our goal was to do EBC or ABC Treks . We decided on EDC & Birendra organised everything from go to woe. Our guide Chubby was fantastic & our porters as well. If you want a great experience in trekking then don't go past Adventure Club. We did a 12 day trek but next time it will be a 16 day trek at least as it was so fantastic !! If you are after a tailored trek just for you and friends or family this is the company for you as you don't need to join a group ,the trek will be tailored for you !! thanks again Birendra & the team, Ill be Back.

Note: Your safety is of the utmost concern whilst you are traveling with Adventure Club Trek. We will make every effort possible to follow the original itinerary but we reserve the right to change that itinerary if a segment of it becomes a safety issue. Certain mountain regions are remote, natural disasters can happen, weather conditions can decline and there can be illness or an injury. To avoid dangerous situations we may occasionally have to make changes to the itinerary to ensure everyone’s safety. That having been said, Adventure Club Trek will strive to provide you with the best possible trekking experience and to keep your safety our number one priority. We thank you for your understanding.

Pre-Trip Meeting 

Prior to all the treks and expeditions, Adventure Club Trek hosts a pre-trip meeting in Kathmandu. The primary purpose of the meeting is to provide an opportunity for individuals to ask questions about the forthcoming trek and to introduce other team members. The meeting covers topics as diverse as personal equipment and acclimatization and usually involves a hike and some skills training. Pre-trip meeting is very important in order to have a better preparation of the trekking.
