What it's like to sign up for the Annapurna Circuit Trek from Pokhara?

During the Annapurna Circuit Trek, you will be walking on the iconic foothills of the Annapurna range, famous for its diverse landscapes, adverse climatic conditions, and culturally enriching villages. The Annapurna Massif represents the central core of the great Himalayan arc and is among the world's most sought-after trekking routes.  

The Annapurna trekking trails lead you through the dense alpine forest, welcoming communities, a rich tapestry of flora and fauna with challenging passes, and unique geological features making the Annapurna Circuit an absolute gem of a trail. 

Thorong La Pass, at an elevation of 5,416 meters, marks the highest point of the Annapurna Circuit. Given the challenges posed on this pass, the circuit typically follows a counter-clockwise route. The Annapurna Circuit Trek first welcomed international trekkers in 1977; since then, it has garnered a reputation as one of the world's finest trekking routes.

Beginning at an altitude of 822 meters in Pokhara, this journey allows for comprehensive exploration of the Himalayas. The mountains are vast, snow-covered, and jagged in all directions, the sky is a sharp color with mesmerizing blue and the air is pure with subtle scents of juniper and rhododendron. This remarkable Annapurna Circuit Trek guides trekkers through rural picturesque villages that are home to Gurung and Magar communities, which unveils awe-inspiring panoramas of the Annapurna Massif. The scenery transitions seamlessly from the northern face of the Annapurna peaks to the elevated and arid expanse of the Manang and Mustang plateau.
