7- Day Annapurna circuit Trek Highlights 

  • Warmly welcomed by friendly mountain People 
  • Scenic drive to Chame from Kathmandu
  • Trekking the world’s most beautiful mountain region
  • Exchanging the culture with local people
  • Crossing the Throng La (5416 m) pass
  •  Visiting the pilgrimages temple of Muktinath (Buddhist and Hindus pilgrimages)
  • Enjoy the outstanding views of the Himalayas of Annapurna massif and Dhaulagiri ranges

 

The Annapurna Circuit trek for one week is a rating reasonably moderate- challenging venture that starts from the subtropical to the high alpine desert of the region, crossing the highest Throng La ( 5416m) pass, one of the world's high passes. Visiting Nepal’s most beautiful mountain villages is a beautiful part of the trek.

The short adventure trip embarks on a fantastic Annapurna Circuit Trek which literally takes us around the entire Annapurna massif conquering the zenith of Thorong La Pass (5,416m/17,769ft) above sea level.

 

An exciting one-week Annapurna round trek starts from Kathmandu with a long bus/ Jeep ride to Chame via Besishar, Chame is the capital of Manang district or valley which is a place formed with a natural hot spring and beautiful views of the mountains.

Trekking from Chame, we head towards fascinating villages of Pisang, Manag, Yak Kharka, and Finally reach Throng La (5416m), Throng la is considered to be known as the world's most outstanding trekking peak, the views from here are spectacular, you’ll witness 360- degree panoramic views of the Annapurna and Dhaulagiri ranges.

From Throng La, we descend down to the Muktinath and Jomsom, the trails during the trek, mostly downhills on the mountain desert to Muktinath by crossing beautiful landscapes and suspension bridges along the way.

From Muktinath, we have road access, we take a local Jeep for 1 hour to Jomsom on a smooth road then the next day we have a scenic flight out to Pokhara and same day to Kathmandu, or you may extend one more day in Pokhara if you have handful days to cart have your international flight.

The short Annapurna Circuit Trek is doable throughout the year. However, the favorable months for the Annapurna Circuit Trek are during the seasons of Autumn (Sep- Nov) and Spring (March-May). These times of the year is the appropriate time to explore the mountain and offer crystal clear views of the Himalayas every day.

Although the trekkers also chose to do this trek in the months of June- Aug, and December- January to avoid the crowds, it’s a doable trek in these months as well but you need to be prepared to face the rains sometime in the monsoon and cold temperatures in the winter season.

This is a short version itinerary of the Normal Annapurna circuit trek designed for those travelers who are traveling short on the time and are interested to be part of this epic adventure trip that could give you a life-changing experience.

With a two-week holiday, you may opt for our 14 days Annapurna circuit trekAnnapurna Circuit Trek with Tilicho Lake, or  Annapurna Circuit Trek -10 days.

On our first day of the journey, grab our breakfast at the hotel and we start our journey into the hills on a winding road along the Trishuli River. On the way, we admire terraced farms and beautiful huts. After reaching a juncture at Mugling, we move straight ahead towards Pokhara. At Dumre, we leave the previous trail and head north to Besisahar. We change our vehicle to Chame, another 4-5 hours of drive from Besisahar takes us to Chame, the starting point of our trek. Overnight in Chame.

  • Meals: Lunch & Dinner (Included)
  • Maximum Altitude: 2,710m/8,892ft

On the second day of our trek, we are relatively going to take a steep and narrow path through a very dense forest will bring us to the dramatic curved rock face, rising 1500m from the river. This is probably the steepest part of the Marshyangdi Valley, so steep that the trail is carved into the vertical rock. After passing this last bit of rock, the valley opens up with majestic vistas. And right, where the valley widens, stands the Paungda Danda, a massive sloping rock face that rises over 5,000ft (1500m) above the trail. We trek for a while before reaching Lower Pisang where we spend the night. Or if you are not that much tired you may hike another 20-30 minutes further to Upper Pisang, the view from this point is slightly better!

As we finished our breakfast at the lodge in Pisang, we get set for our hike towards Manag. There are two routes to Manang but we follow the trail that takes us to Upper Pisang via Geru. This trail guarantees excellent views of the beautiful landscape and the mighty mountains including Annapurna and Pisang. We begin to notice a contrast in the landscape and vegetation today. The cold and dry climate also creates a much harsher environment. Our short visit to Barge monastery, the largest monastery in the entire district of Manang will be memorable. The views are equally beautiful but the Upper valley looks more beautiful with the pristine lake but it requires a little longer hike than the lower one to reach Manang. Overnight at Manang.

We constantly trek towards the valley. From Manang village, the trail crosses a stream, climbs to a village of Tenki, and continues to climb out of the Marshyangdi Valley turning northwest up the valley of Jarsang Khola. The trail follows this valley northward, passing a few pastures and a scrub of juniper trees, as it steadily gains elevation. The trail further passes near the small village of Ghunsa, a cluster of flat mud roofs just below the trailhead. Now the trail goes through meadows where horses and yaks graze. After crossing a suspension bridge, the trail passes an ancient old Mani wall in a pleasant meadow and then reaches another small village of Yak Kharka where we will be spent overnight with the nice views and mountain food. Overnight at Yak Karka.

We ascend furthermore and pass through towering cliffs before reaching Thorang Phedi, the last village before Thorong La pass. On this trip, we are rewarded with one of the best views of Mt. Gudang, Mt. Syagang, Thorung Peak, and Mt. Khatungkan. The word Phedi in Nepalese is referred to as the foot of a mountain. Overnight in Thorong Phedi. Overnight in Thorang Phedi.

Still being on the top of Throng La is a worth experience.
