Annapurna Circuit Trek is a captivating and much rewarding trek in the Annapurna region. Popular with trekkers for years, this trek encompasses a well-defined route in the foothills of the Himalayas, with views of impressive hills and mountains. It also has one “little extra” that most trekkers miss out on - a visit to Tilicho Lake, the world's highest altitude lake! At an altitude of 4,949m this “little extra” is going to take your trek to the next level! Finally, we end in Muktinath, one of the world's highest temples and a holy pilgrimage site of both Hindus and Buddhists. So if you truly want to have the best of all that Nepal trekking has to offer, then this trek will not disappoint!

Trip Highlights

    • Imagine yourself surrounded by gigantic hills and mountains as you find yourself in the heart of the Himalayas! This trek is guaranteed to reset your mind, body and soul as you surrender to the majesty of the mountains through your trek. While this is going to be a difficult adventure, the beauty of these mountains and the sense of achievement upon completing your trek is going to make it all worth it. And we promise you, nothing can beat that feeling of achievement!

    • Experience some of the most diverse landscapes you’ll see on a single trek in Nepal. From low tropical valleys to high snow-capped mountains, vast and rapid rivers, high altitude lakes, lush pine forests, deserted slopes, and dry terrain. This trek offers it all!

    • Tilicho Lake, the highest lake for its size in the world, situated at an altitude of 4,919 meters (16,138 ft). But let’s not forget the impressive mountains that surround it and allow it to exist; Mt Khangsar, Muktinath Peak, Mt Nilgiri, and Tilicho Peak.

    • Get ready for a tough, but excitingly dangerous high altitude pass - Thorong La Pass (5416m). It is also the world’s biggest pass. Now that’s something to brag about back home!

    • Impressive views of numerous 6,000-8,000m peaks, including Views of Annapurna Massif (Annapurna I-IV), Mt Dhaulagiri, Mt Machhapuchhre, Mt Manaslu, Mt Gangapurna, Tilicho Peak, Pisang Peak, and Paungda Danda.

    • Muktinath temple, one of the world's highest temples, is a sacred site to Hindus and Buddhists. Hindu and Buddhist traditions claim this site to be the only place on Earth to host all five elements (fire, water, sky, earth, and air) from which all material things in the universe are made.

    • The diverse culture of different ethnic groups living in these regions. Manang district, where the trek begins, is rich in culture, heritage, vegetation, and wildlife whereas the trans-Himalayan district of Mustang where the trek ends is also known as the semi-desert of Nepal due to its barren landscape and is the origin of the Thakali people and their culture. 

    • Get first hand experience of the unique Himalayan ecosystem. The trail winds alongside terraced rice paddies, lush rhododendron forests and high altitude landscapes with the Annapurna Range in view most of the time. And if you’re lucky, sightings of rare and endangered species of animals like snow leopard, musk deer and langur are not uncommon in the region. Other animals such as Himalayan tahr, blue sheep and a host of birds are found aplenty here. 

    • Love apples? Well, Marpha, Jomsom is the home of the world’s BEST apples and apple brandy. It’s a must try! 

    • Finally, soothe away the tension and aches of your epic adventure with an afternoon dip in the hotsprings of Tatopani. Fed by an underground thermal source, this is as natural as it gets! Don’t forget to bring a modest swimsuit.
