The Annapurna Circuit Trek promises an unforgettable experience, but do remember that this trek is not for the weak and weary.

Moreover, trekking around the Annapurna mountains not only challenges you physically by pushing you to do more, but this hike in Nepal will stir you emotionally while at the same time making you widen up your cultural vision through which you view the Nepal Himalayas.

How long does it take to complete the Round Annapurna Trek?

The trek around the Annapurna Range is a challenging trail in central Nepal that spans 160 km to 230 km, with twelve to seventeen days of trekking depending on your chosen starting and ending points.

What are the highlights of the Annapurna Trek?

Reaching the highest point of Thorung La Pass, towering at an astonishing altitude of 5416 meters, stands out as the key attraction of the Annapurna Circuit Trek. This pass, located on the border with Tibet, offers breathtaking panoramic views of the snow-capped peaks in the Annapurna Range.

Is the Annapurna Circuit trek worth it?

It is a truly awe-inspiring experience that showcases the majestic beauty of Nepal’s Himalayas. Another captivating aspect of this trek is traversing through both the Marsyangdi River Valley and Kaligandaki Gorge.

A Trek to Upper Pisang

When trekking from Chame to Manang, it’s advisable for hikers to follow the high route to Upper Pisang, Ghyaru, and then on to Manang, as it offers stunning mountain views along this section of the trek.

Furthermore, Upper Pisang, Ghyaru, and Ngawal are pristine examples of Tibetan-style villages that remain in their authentic state. Spending a night in one of these villages can aid in acclimatization, as they are situated at higher altitudes than Manang.

Starting Point of the Trek

Besisahar, located in the Marshyandi River valley, has traditionally served as the starting point for the Annapurna Circuit Trek. However, nowadays most trekkers opt to drive to Jagat or Chame, and some even choose to begin from Manang. This approach is not recommended because it doesn’t allow for proper acclimatization to higher altitudes.

Additionally, driving this far means missing out on the breathtaking scenery along the trek route. There are various options available for both starting and finishing this trek, with individual preferences playing a key role in decision-making.

Ending Point

If you’re short on time or not up for the entire journey, you can finish the Annapurna Circuit Trek in Jomsom and catch a flight to Pokhara. Alternatively, there’s also the option of using public transportation from Jomsom to Pokhara.

However, if you’re feeling energized and determined to complete the trek, you can continue on to Ghorepani Poon Hill and then head towards Annapurna Base Camp before finishing the trek at Birethanti. From there, it’s just a two-hour Jeep drive back to Pokhara.

 Side Trek to Tilicho Lake

A fantastic addition to the Annapurna Circuit Trek is a visit to Tilicho Lake, which is located at an elevation of 4990 m and is renowned as the highest glacial lake globally. Many consider a side trek to Tilicho Lake essential for completing the Round Annapurna Trek. However, it’s important to allocate an additional three days to fully experience its beauty and significance.

Why this trek?

Immerse yourself in one of the most stunning and dramatic mountain ranges in the world. Each day, the Round Annapurna Trek takes you to over 5000 m of mountain passes with snow-covered 7000 m peaks all around you. Truly a beautiful part of the world.

What is the best time for the Annapurna Circuit Trek?

The Round Annapurna Trek is best experienced from April to May, when the Annapurna Conservation Area is adorned with a stunning display of rhododendron flowers, creating a picturesque scene for trekkers. The mild weather during this time makes it ideal for trekking.

For those looking for crystal-clear mountain views, the prime months are October to November. This period follows the monsoon season, resulting in lush and pristine vegetation along with clear skies offering magnificent views of the mountains. It’s worth noting that this is also peak tourist season, so expect larger crowds on the trails.

From December to March, temperatures drop significantly during what is considered the coldest season for undertaking the Annapurna Circuit trek. Higher altitudes are covered in snow, and there’s a possibility of Thorung la Pass being blocked off. On a positive note, though, fewer people venture onto these trails during this time.

Food and Accommodation on the Annapurna Trek

Maintaining proper nourishment while trekking the Annapurna Circuit is essential due to the high energy and stamina demands of this trek. While options may be limited compared to big cities, there are plenty of nutritious, hygienic, and delicious food choices available along the route. The must-try food for trekkers is Nepali thali. This consists of rice, dal, and vegetable curry cooked in local style.

Accommodations on the Annapurna Circuit vary from basic teahouses to more comfortable guesthouses. Despite being a remote trek, lodges and teahouses are strategically located at crucial points along the trail, eliminating the need for tent camping unless desired for experience.

Teahouses provide simple rooms with basic amenities such as beds with blankets, shared bathrooms (often squat toilets), communal dining areas, and warm hospitality from owners. Trekkers can socialize with fellow travelers in a friendly environment while staying connected through available electricity for charging devices or enjoying warm baths at an additional cost.

In larger villages and towns along the circuit, more comfortable guesthouses and lodges offer private rooms with attached bathrooms and hot showers. These accommodations also often feature WiFi services alongside restaurant facilities serving local and international dishes. Additionally, some lodges provide room heating, which can be especially comforting during cold nights while offering picturesque mountain views due to their attractive locations.

What permits are required for the Annapurna Trek?

Trekking in the Annapurna Circuit requires two types of permits: TIMS (Trekkers Information Management System) and ANCAP (Annapurna Conservation Area Entry Permit). The TIMS permit, implemented by the Nepal Tourism Board and Trekking Agencies Association of Nepal, is essential for ensuring the safety of trekkers.

On the other hand, the ANCAP permit is necessary for anyone wishing to trek in the Annapurna region.The Annapurna region was designated as a conservation area by Nepal’s government in 1992, making it the largest protected area in Nepal.

Anyone planning to trek in this region must obtain an ANCAP permit. This initiative aims to promote sustainable economic and social development for local communities across Manang, Myagdi, Lamjung, and Mustang districts.

Managed by the National Trust for Nature Conservation, a portion of funds generated from ANCAP permits contributes to conserving this picturesque region. The cost for these permits varies based on nationality:

TIMS Permit:
SAARC nationals: NPR 600 (about US$6)
All other nationals: NPR 2000 (about US$20)

ANCAP Permit:
– SAARC nationals: NPR 200 (about US$2)
– All other nationals: NPR 2000 (about US$20)

Note that these prices do not include a 13% value-added tax compliant fee.

It’s important to note that children under ten years old are exempt from purchasing these permits.

Annapurna Circuit Trek Itinerary in Detail

Day 1: Drive Pokhara to Besisahar (820 m/4 hours). Drive further on to Jagat. Lodge.

  • Jagat to Chamche (1385 m/3 km/2 hours)
  • Chamche to Tal (1700 m/5 Km/4 hours)
  • Tal to Dharapani (1900 m/6 Km/2 hours)

The initial leg of the Annapurna Circuit Trek from Jagat to Dharapani typically involves around five hours of moderate trekking, with an ascent of 530 meters. Along the way, trekkers can admire a stunning waterfall near Jagat before passing through Chamche, a quaint village. A delightful lunch spot awaits at the picturesque riverside town of Tal before reaching Dharapani for an overnight stay deep in the valley, offering breathtaking vistas of both river and mountains.

Day 3: Trek Dharapani to Chame (2610 m/16 km/6 hours). Lodge.

  • Dharapani to Bagarchap (2160 m/2 km/1 hour)
  • Bagarchap to Danaqyu (2200 m/2 km/1 hour)
  • Danaqyu to Timang (2700 m/4 km/2 h).
  • Timang to Thanchowk (2750/3 km/1.30 hours)
  • Thanchowk to Koto (2640 m/3 km/1 hour)
  • Koto to Chame (2610 m/2 km/1 hour)

Hiking from Dharapani to Chame begins with a relatively simple stroll along a rugged Jeep track, featuring some inclines and declines, until reaching Danaqyu, an extensive village with several lodges. From this point onward, there is a steep and challenging two-hour ascent of 500 meters to Timang, characterized by slippery surfaces and steep stone stairs.

The trek from Timang to Thanchowk, a quaint small village with limited lodges, involves a gradual descent of 100 m through green fields teeming with livestock; the trail here is relatively straightforward. The trek route leading from Thanchowk to Koto is somewhat rugged; however, the picturesque village adorned with several wooden houses against the lush forest backdrop makes up for it.

Finally reaching Koto marks an effortless 30-minute walk before arriving in Chame, which serves as the district headquarters of Manang and boasts essential amenities such as banks and police headquarters.

Day 4: Trek Chame to Upper Pisang (3310 m/15 km/4-5 hours). Lodge.

  • Chame-Bhratang (2850 m/7 km/2 hours)
  • Bharatng to Dhukur Pokhari (3240 m/6 km/2 hours)
  • Dhukur Pokhari to Upper Pisang (3310 m/1.5 km/2 hours)

You can bypass the trek to Upper Pisang and head directly to Lower Pisang for an easier day hike, reducing the Annapurna Circuit Trek by two days.

The scenic six-hour trek from Chame to Upper Pisang offers stunning views with a 600-meter elevation gain. Along the way, you’ll pass through Bhartang, known for its delicious apples and apple pie. The trail from Bhartang to Dhukur Pokhari follows the Marsanygdi River, providing breathtaking views of the snow-capped Annapurna Range. As you continue towards Upper Pisang after Dhukur Pokhari, the route climbs steadily up a mountainside for 100 m.

Day 5: Trek from Upper Pisang to Ngawal (3680 m/10 km/6 hours). Lodge.

  • Upper Pisang to Ghyaru ( m/5 km/3 hours)
  • Ghyaru to Ngawal (3680 m/5 km/3 hours)

The trek from Upper Pisang to Ghyaru begins with a gentle path alongside a serene green lake, leading to the renowned hill where the trail zigzags thirty times along an exceptionally steep slope, taking approximately an hour to traverse. Ghyaru is a stunning village offering picturesque views of Annapurna II, III, and IV. The initial 3-kilometer stretch from Ghyaru to Ngawal involves a 500-meter ascent, followed by a descent into the vibrant village of Ngawal.

Day 6: Ngawal to Manang (3540 m/10 km/5 hours).

  • Ngawal to Humde (3330 m/2 km/1.30 h)
  • Humde to Braka (3450m/6Km/3Hrs)
  • Braka to Manang (3540 m/2 km/30 minutes)

The trek from Ngwal to Humde follows a steep, downhill path leading down to the valley floor, passing through lush forests and abundant plant life that is not found in Upper Pisang. Beyond Humde, the trail meanders gently through expansive fields, traverses the quaint village of Braka nestled into a rocky cliff face, and finally reaches Manang. The segment from Braga to Manang offers an effortless hike along a Jeep track.

Day 7: Rest/Acclimatization Day at Manang. Lodge.

Take a hike to the View Point above and enjoy a breathtaking panoramic view of Manang town below. Alternatively, you can embark on a one-hour side trek to Gangapurna Lake, a mesmerizing glacial lake nearby. The lake gets its name from the majestic Gangapurna Mountain towering beside it. Observing the Gangapurna Icefall is an unforgettable experience during your Annapurna Circuit Trek.

In the afternoon, consider participating in a high-altitude talk organized by the Himalayan Rescue Association in Manang. These sessions offer valuable insights into altitude sickness-related topics, helping you make informed decisions as you acclimatize and prepare for the challenging trek to Thorungla Pass en route to Muktinath. This activity is an excellent way to make productive use of your time in Manang while ensuring that you are well-prepared for your upcoming adventure.

Day 8: Trek Manang to Yak Kharka (4020 m/10 km/5 hours). Lodge.

  • Manang to Gunsang (3900 m/3 km/2 hours)
  • Gunsang to Yak Kharka ( m/7 km/3 hours)

The Jeep track ends at this point, where a narrow trekking trail begins. From Manang, there are two trails leading to different destinations: one goes to Tilicho Lake, and the other leads to Thorung La Pass.

To reach Tilicho Lake (4920m), known as the largest glacial lake of its kind in the world, an additional two days of trekking are required. Many consider it essential to include a side trek to Tilicho Lake in their Annapurna Circuit Trek experience for it to be complete.

The 10-kilometer trek from Manang to Yak Kharka can be completed in approximately 5 hours. The trail commences with a gentle uphill path towards Tanki Manang, or the old village where local residents reside. As you ascend towards Tanki Manang, you’ll encounter stone buildings with flat roofs and meandering pathways between them. Despite being only 3 km long, the hike from Tanki Manang up to Gunsang is challenging due to an elevation gain of 300m and steep inclines near its end; however, hikers are rewarded with breathtaking views overlooking Manang down below upon arrival at Gunsang, a small village with a couple of lodges.

Moving on from Gunsung toward Yak Kharka takes trekkers above the tree line where yaks and horses graze on hillsides alongside them; this segment of the Annapurna Circuit Trek is relatively easier with an altitude gain of just 150 m while offering incredible views of Chulu West Peak along the way. Yak Kharkha also provides stunning sunset vistas over the Annapurna Range that should not be missed during your trek.

Day 9: Trek Yak Kharka to Thorung Phedi (4450 m/6 km/4 hours). Lodge.

  • Yak Kharka to Churi Letdar (4200 m/1 km/30 minutes)
  • Churi Ledar to Thorung Phedi (4450 m/5 km/4 hours)

Thorung Phedi serves as the primary base camp for traversing the Thorungla Pass, although some trekkers also opt to use High Camp as their base. The Annapurna Circuit Trek’s route for this leg commences with a gentle 1 km ascent to Churi Ledar, offering breathtaking views of the Annapurna Range. Shortly after leaving Churi Ledar, the trail descends into the valley below on a steep, rocky path. After reaching the valley floor, hikers face a challenging climb up to a ridge, followed by navigating along a path carved into the mountainside. Caution is advised, particularly regarding potential landslides, approximately 30 minutes before reaching Thorung Phedi.

Day 10: Thorung Phedi-Thorung La pass (5416m) to Muktinath (3800 m/16 km). Lodge.

  • Thorung Phedi to Thorongla High Camp (4830 m/1 km/1 h)
  • High Camp to Thorongla Pass (5416 m/5 km/4 hours)
  • Thorongla Pass to Charabu (4230 m/6 km/6 hours)
  • Charabu to Muktinath (3800 m/km/3 hours)

Day 10 of the Annapurna Circuit Trek is an intense and remarkable day, featuring the challenging trek to Thorung La Pass, which marks the highest point of the entire hike. The day begins in the early hours (2 a.m.) as hikers set out to conquer this sixteen-kilometer stretch to Muktinath, a journey that demands over twelve hours of trekking.

The initial ascent towards Thorungla High Camp spans about 1 km and involves an incredibly steep climb lasting approximately two hours. However, this strenuous effort is rewarded with breathtaking panoramic views that serve as a testament to the incredible trek embarked upon.

Following High Camp, the trail becomes relatively more manageable until reaching Thorungla Pass. From there onwards to Charabu, hikers navigate a steep descent along rocky terrain while taking extra caution not to strain their knees. The final leg from Charabu to Muktinath offers a gentler downhill path through expansive fields and shrubbery.

Day 11: Trek Muktinath to Kagbeni (2800 m/9.5 km). Lodge.

The hike from Muktinath to Kagbeni follows a road that leads through the charming village of Jharkot, where a monastery sits atop a hill. Kagbeni is an enchanting riverside village with ancient buildings and narrow alleyways waiting to be discovered. This picturesque destination serves as the entrance to the Upper Mustang Area, requiring visitors to obtain a special permit and pay an additional fee of US$500 for ten days in order to explore this unique region.

Day 12: Trek Kagbeni to Marpha (2670 m/15 km/5 hours). Lodge.

  • Kagbeni to Jomsom (2743 m/10 km/3 hours)
  • Jomsom to Marpha (2670 m/5 km/2 hours)

Starting from Kagbeni, we can take the Ekle Bhatti Trail to reach Jomsom, enjoying breathtaking views of the Nilgiri and Dhaulagiri Mountains along the way. The trek to Marpha is mostly downhill and relatively easy, taking around 5 to 6 hours depending on individual pace. Once in Marpha, known as an “Apple country,” visitors can savor a variety of apple products available for sale. This unique village has strong influences from Tibetan culture due to its significant population of Tibetan refugees who have established shops in the area.

NOTE : You can also end the Annaapurna Circuit Trek by trekking to Jomsom and flying out to Pokhara, or continue the Round Annapurna Trek to Ghorepani and Poon hill for another Fantastic view of the Mountains that you had just circled

Day 13: Trek Marpha to Kalopani (2535 m/17 km/7 hours). Lodge.

You have two options to reach Kalopani: you can either take the road or follow the trekking trail. If you choose the trekking trail, you’ll pass through the charming village of Tukuche, which is about 4 km away and takes approximately 2 hours to reach on foot. Tukuche is situated in the picturesque Kali Gandaki Gorge and serves as a hub for the Thakali people, known for their delectable Thakali cuisine. Continuing from Tukuche, the trail meanders through quaint settlements like Kobang and Larjung.

Day 14: Trek Kalopani to Tatopani (1200 m/20 km/7 hours). Lodge.

The trail is sufficiently easy to trek on with no gain in altitude, and after seven hours of trekking, you will get a chance to dip your legs in the hot water spring that this place boasts of.

Day 15: Trek Tatopani to Ghorepani (2870 m/14 km). Lodge.

The trail to Ghorepani climbs steadily through thick forest till Shikha. The view of the Kali Gandaki Gorge down below and of the Dhaulagiri Mountains high on the horizon provides a beautiful view that justifies the climb up. From here, it’s through the Rhododendron Forest to Ghorepani.

Day 16: Early in the morning, climb Poon Hill (3 km) for sunrise views. Trek to Birethanti (1025 m/13 km/7 hours). Lodge.

Day 17: Drive to Pokhara. Hotel. The Annapurna Circuit Trek ends.
