Annapurna Circuit Trek

Duration: 21 Days

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.
