Overview

“Climb to the high-altitude pass of Thorong La to stand at an incredible 5,416 meters above sea level. The air will be thin, but your heart will be full: with the entirety of the western Himalayas revealed in startling beauty before your very eyes, you may never be the same again.”

 

Experience all the thrills of the Annapurna Circuit Trek in just 10 days

Trekking in Nepal’s storied Annapurna mountains offers an enticing prospect that few travelers can resist. These mighty Himalayan peaks are home to some of the most jaw-dropping scenery and epic trails that Nepal has to offer.

And make no mistake: the Annapurna Circuit Trek is a gargantuan hike. It’s one of the best treks in Nepal, offering travelers the chance to range from the country’s steamy subtropical lowlands to its frigid alpine heights.

But the trek is more than 100 miles long, and most itineraries take two weeks or more to cover the entirety of the journey. This has historically placed the adventure beyond the reach of trekkers with less time to spend in the mountains—but all that is about to change.

Alpine Ramble Treks is proud to debut our 10-day Annapurna Circuit trekking itinerary, which showcases the fabulous western Himalayas in all their considerable grandeur. You’ll cross high-altitude mountain passes, explore the streets of Nepal’s two biggest cities, and experience the sheer cultural diversity of the Himalayas.

What can you expect on the Annapurna Circuit Trek?

While our short Annapurna Circuit trekking itinerary takes place over the course of just ten days, we’ve packed this agenda with enough unforgettable sights to last a lifetime.

From the intoxicating metropolis of Kathmandu to the lonely alpine hamlets of the highest mountains, you’ll encounter a wide variety of cultural and architectural wonders. The people in this part of Nepal belong predominantly to the Gurung and Magar ethnicities, and learning about their timeless traditions and Tibetan religious iconography is sure to cement itself as a highlight of your trekking adventure.

The Annapurnas are also rife with scenes of surpassing natural beauty, from mist-shrouded hillsides blanketed with conifer forest to the indisputable majesty of snowbound Himalayan peaks.

You’ll stand beneath the awe-inspiring summits of towering mountains like Manaslu, Dhaulagiri, Machapuchare, and—of course—the mighty Annapurna massif itself. For our money, there’s no better way to acquaint yourself with the highest peaks of the western Himalayas.

So let us handle the logistics of transportation, equipment, and accommodations.

Best Time of Year for the Annapurna Circuit Trek

Trekking seasons in Nepal are largely dictated by the summer monsoon, and our 10-day Annapurna Circuit Trek is no exception.

The monsoon typically lasts from June to August, and most visitors consequently choose to hike during the spring months of February to May or the autumn months of September to November.

These are the best times of year to enjoy the perfect combination of comfortable temperatures and clear mountain views. But you can hike in the Annapurnas at any time of year, and the snow-laden trails of winter are just as mysterious and evocative as the mist-shrouded hillsides of summer.

Whenever you choose to travel, rest assured that Alpine Ramble Treks will put together a trekking adventure that will surpass even your highest expectations.

 

Annapurna Circuit Trek Difficulty

Our 10-day Annapurna Circuit Trek is one of the most popular and enduring hikes in the Himalayas.

Most travelers in good health and reasonable physical fitness will be able to complete this itinerary without issue, and no previous trekking experience is required. However, this trek does climb to altitudes higher than 4,000 meters, with the mountain pass of Thorong La reaching well above 5,000 meters.

At these altitudes, it’s important to drink lots of water and get plenty of rest in order to let your body adjust naturally to the increased elevation. As always, your guide will look after your progress and ensure that you enjoy a safe and rewarding trek into the heart of the Annapurnas.

 

If this itinerary isn’t quite what you’re looking for, Alpine Ramble Treks is proud to offer a host of alternate treks for you to consider. Travelers with extra time to spare will find our 17-day Annapurna Circuit Trek especially rewarding, as it includes a visit to the secret Nar and Phu Valleys, which have only recently been opened to travelers. And if you’re looking for an even shorter trip in this region, you’ll want to check out our Short Annapurna Base Camp Trek or five-day Ghorepani Poon Hill trek

If you’ve spent a few days in Kathmandu, you’ve probably already fallen in love with the intoxicating rhythms of this urban metropolis. But to get started on our Annapurna Circuit Trek, we’re going to have to trade the hustle and bustle of Kathmandu for the much smaller city of Besi Shahar. Situated alongside the banks of the Marsyangdi River, Besi Shahar offers impressive mountain views and a lovely selection of restaurants and cafes. To get there, we’ll travel by road for about five or six hours from Kathmandu. Depending on your preference, we can arrange to make the journey by tourist bus or private vehicle—either way, this scenic route offers a great look at some of Nepal’s most picturesque rural landscapes. You’ll see winding rivers, sparkling waterfalls, rising mountains, and far-reaching fields where rice and millet are grown. When we arrive in town, we’ll get checked in at our hotel and enjoy the afternoon and evening at our leisure. 

  • Driving time: 5-6 hrs approx
  • Maximum Elevation: 760 m/2,490 ft
  • Accommodation: Hotel (Included) 

    After breakfast this morning, we’ll take the next step to reach the trailhead of the Annapurna Circuit Trek: making the short overland drive to the mountainside town of Chame. Our route traces the watercourse of the Marsyangdi River for about two or three hours, bringing us through a series of small Gurung and Magar communities. We’ll stop at the village called Dharapani to register at the local checkpoint and collect our trekking permits. From here, we’ll have another two hours on the road, driving through pleasant forests of pine and rhododendron where the locals still live in traditional mountain villages. We’ll stop to take some photos in especially scenic locales—there’s one roadside waterfall you certainly won’t want to miss. When we arrive in Chame at last, you’ll be spellbound by the town’s charming stone-built homes and wondrous views of pine-clad hillsides, rising to colossal snowcapped mountains. We’ll get settled at our trekking lodge here in Chame before savoring a home-cooked meal and spending the night.

    • Driving time: 5-6 hrs approx
    • Maximum Elevation: 2,710m/8,892ft
    • Accommodation: Trekking Lodge /Tea House
    • Food: Breakfast, Lunch, and Dinner (Included) 

      It’s time to start the Annapurna Circuit Trek in earnest! Our adventure begins right here in Chame, departing from the valley and rising through a world of quiet apple orchards and silent forests of rhododendron and conifer. If you’re trekking during the springtime, you can expect the hills to come alive with the vibrant blooms of the rhododendron flower—one of the undisputed highlights of trekking in Nepal. Our destination today is the small community of Pisang, which we should reach after about four or five hours of hiking. To get there, we’ll cross a few suspension bridges bedecked with colorful prayer flags and earn excellent views of the little-known, flat-topped mountain called Paungda Danda. When we arrive in Pisang, we’ll drop our bags at the best available trekking lodge before spending the rest of the day chatting with locals, enjoying some delicious tea, and relishing the alpine ambiance of this impossibly scenic mountain community.

      • Hiking time: 4-5 hrs 
      • Maximum Elevation: 3,300m/10,827ft
      • Accommodation: Trekking Lodge /Tea House
      • Food: Breakfast, Lunch, and Dinner (Included)

        We’ll kick off another day’s hike on the Annapurna Circuit Trek by following a pleasant trail as it climbs gently through beautiful evergreen forests to enter the Manang Valley. During the course of today’s hike, we’ll pass through the villages of Humde and Braga. The latter is renowned for its 900-year-old monastery; if you’re interested in Himalayan culture, this is one stop you won’t want to miss. On the second half of our hike, we’ll have the option of taking a direct route or a scenic detour to the north. Either way, you’ll earn great views of Gangapurna, Pisang Peak, and the Annapurnas themselves—but the scenic route also offers a great look at some exceptionally lovely alpine lakes. Whichever path we choose, we’ll find ourselves in the village of Manang this afternoon. This is one of the largest communities in the Annapurnas, and we’ll be spending the next two nights at the best available trekking lodge in town.

        • Hiking time: 5-6 hrs Approx
        • Maximum Elevation: 3,519m/11,546ft
        • Accommodation: Trekking Lodge /Tea House
        • Food: Breakfast, Lunch, and Dinner (Included)

          Before we can make any further progress on the Annapurna Circuit Trek, we’ll need to spend the day here in Manang to adjust to the increasingly high altitudes here in the Himalayas. Acclimating to the rarefied atmosphere is an important step to ensure your safety when trekking in Nepal. Fortunately, there’s plenty to do in and around Manang. Because the village has a good road connection, you can restock on supplies and enjoy some great-tasting local fare at the town’s restaurants. If you’re looking for adventure, we can also embark upon a day hike to the pale blue waters of the splendid Gangapurna Lake. We can also visit the frozen lakes collectively known as Kicho Tal—this is a long day hike, but it comes with spectacular views of mountains like Gangapurna and Tilicho Peak. However you choose to while away the hours of the day, we’ll return to our cozy lodge in Manang this afternoon to spend a second night.

          • Maximum Elevation: 3,519m/11,546ft
          • Accommodation: Trekking Lodge /Tea House
          • Food: Breakfast, Lunch, and Dinner (Included) 

            It’s time to continue our trek along the Annapurna Circuit! After enjoying a hearty breakfast in Manang, we’ll set out for the community of Yak Kharka. Our path today leads over daring suspension bridges, across high-altitude pastures, and into the valley of the Jarsang Khola river. We’ll be covering approximately seven kilometers over the course of the day, which should take us about four hours of trekking. This might not seem like much, but it’s enough to see a marked change in the alpine landscape of our immediate surroundings: we’re entering real mountain territory now, trekking amongst the tallest peaks of the Annapurnas. Yak Kharka’s name translates to “yak pasture,” and you can expect to see a few of these iconic animals roaming near town. When we arrive, you’ll quickly see why the community is regarded as one of the most beautiful little villages in the Himalayas. Make sure to check out the local bakery before turning in for the night at our charming teahouse accommodations.

            • Hiking time: 4 hrs Approx
            • Maximum Elevation: 4,110m/13,485ft
            • Accommodation: Trekking Lodge /Tea House
            • Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, and Dinner (Included)
              As the sun lights up the Himalayas and turns their highest peaks to gold, we’ll enjoy a late breakfast in the beautiful surroundings of Yak Kharka. When it’s time to pick up the trail, we’ll set out across high-altitude pastures, climbing gradually to reach a gravity-defying suspension bridge. This makes for a great photo opportunity—although you may notice that locals are just as likely to take the smaller wooden bridge on the valley floor. As we continue to climb, we’ll stop for midday tea at a local shop to refresh us and prepare us for the final push to Thorong Phedi. We’ll enter an area prone to landslides during the home stretch of today’s hike, so we’ll make sure to assess the condition of our trail and proceed safely. When we arrive at Thorong Phedi, we’ll get checked in at our teahouse and spend the rest of the day enjoying the town’s splendid views of Gangapurna, Tilicho Peak, and the Annapurnas.
              • Hiking time: 4-5 hrs Approx
              • Maximum Elevation: 4,600m/15,093ft
              • Accommodation: Trekking Lodge /Tea House
              • Food: Breakfast, Lunch, and Dinner (Included)
                Today is widely regarded as the most exciting part of the Annapurna Circuit Trek. We’ll be climbing to a breathless 5,416 meters above sea level to reach the high-altitude mountain pass known as Thorong La. To get there, we’ll make an early start, climbing a series of switchbacks through the mid-morning gloom. After about an hour, we’ll reach High Camp and take a short break before pushing on for another two hours to reach the pass itself. It’s a steep climb, but the views of Dhaulagiri and Manaslu from Thorong La are worth the effort—and you can even enjoy them with a mug of hot tea in your hands, thanks to the efforts of a brave little tea shop situated right at the pass. Moving on, we’ll descend slowly and carefully from the other side of Thorong La to reach Muktinath, a town that is sacred to both Hindus and Buddhists. This part of today’s trek should take about four more hours, traversing alpine meadows and descending into a deep ravine. When we arrive at Muktinath after a long day’s march, you’ll be thrilled to get checked in at your trekking lodge for some well-deserved rest and relaxation.
                • Hiking time: 7-8 hrs Approx
                • Maximum Elevation: 5,416m/17,770ft
                • Accommodation: Trekking Lodge /Tea House
                • Food: Breakfast, Lunch, and Lunch (Included) 

                  Our time on the Annapurna Circuit Trek has almost drawn to a close; after one last breakfast in the mountains, we’ll load up our bags and set out for Pokhara. We’ll be making the drive by tourist bus or private Jeep, depending on your arrangements. While the route is only about 170 kilometers, mountain roads in Nepal must be navigated slowly and carefully, and we’ll plan for this trip to take most of the day. When we arrive in Pokhara, you’ll be ready to celebrate our accomplishments. The town is known as Nepal’s adventure capital, where thrillseekers and nature lovers alike will find plenty to love. From the placid waters of Phewa Lake to the watchful fishtail-shaped summit of Machapuchare, the landmarks of Pokhara are as unmistakable as they are unforgettable. We’ll get checked in at your hotel and have an evening meal with our trekking team to celebrate our accomplishments on the Annapurna Circuit Trek before leaving you free to explore the nightlife of Pokhara at your leisure.

                  Please note: If you’d like to spend more time in Pokhara, Alpine Ramble Treks can modify this itinerary to include an extra night before or after the Annapurna Circuit Trek. In addition to the city’s many temples and beautiful vantage points, you’ll find that there are more activities here than can be enjoyed in a single day. Adventure lovers will be particularly enamored of Pokhara’s many opportunities to go bungee jumping, rafting, and hang gliding.

                  • Driving time: 8-9 hrs Approx
                  • Maximum Elevation: 827m/2,713ft
                  • Accommodation: Hotel Panorama View
                  • Meals: Breakfast, and Lunch (Included) 

                    When it’s time to depart from the magical city of Pokhara, we’ll check out of our hotel and begin the road trip back to Kathmandu. Most travelers elect to make this seven-hour journey in a comfortable tourist bus, although we can also arrange for private transportation. This overland trip is a great way to get one last look at the rural landscapes and beautiful scenery of Nepal’s countryside as we travel between the country’s two biggest cities. When we arrive in the capital, you’ll be transferred to your hotel to relax and refresh yourself before heading to the airport for your departing flight. If your flight leaves tomorrow, we’ll get the team together for a last farewell dinner at one of Kathmandu’s unforgettable local restaurants. Thank you for choosing Alpine Ramble Treks—we hope that the Annapurna Circuit Trek has been the adventure of a lifetime.

However, in emergency cases, if our clients have any trouble with mountain sickness or any unforeseen circumstances then we will always be standing by to send a rescue helicopter to bring our clients back to lower places or Kathmandu.

                      Note: During the trek, make sure you are always in the safe zone of the place wherever you are while trekking on the mountain because you may encounter a number of mules, yaks are carrying the suppliers for hotels, Yaks Donkey and Jokpa use for the major transportations in the Himalayas region, as we always need to be aware with them, and stay at the safe place, especially at the narrow section of the trail.

                        Everything on our trip with Alpine Ramble went perfectly. Although there were elections on our starting day and many roads were closed, our guide Samir made it possible to start our trek on time. The trek itself was marvelous. We have seen the mountain range in clear weather and we hiked over Thorang La during snowy conditions with blue skies at the top. It was so adventurous and fun. I want to thank our guide Samir for the constant support during the trek. We had so much fun together and next time we would surely go with him again. I also want to thank Bhim our porter for carrying our stuff. Man is he strong :)Overall it was just a perfect trek and we would recommend especially this trek with Alpine Ramble!

                        We went with Dil Gurung back in 2011 for a five-day trek at Annapurna. 
                        Dil showed extremely kind service and good knowledge of the surroundings and he was always very helpful and offered his assistance at all times. 

                        The area was astonishingly beautiful, and combined with the very very kind service of Dil; I would say it was a trip worth recommending. 

                        I wish and hope all the best for Dil and his family in the future to come and I can only give my warmest recommendations to book your next trip in the Himalaya's with Alpine Ramble Treks.

                        Namaste

                        A very good team who supported us for all our needs during this trek. They went above and beyond in keeping us comfortable and to experience the trek in a fantastic way.
                        We couldn’t have done this without the team including Dilman, Bahadur, Ayush, Shamsher, Namsher and Dil. A big thanks to their efforts and support.

                        Took this trip last year and was amazing. Our tour guide was very helpful and we learned a lot. It was great meeting the people in the villages across the Treks and seeing the beautiful nature along the way. Everything was very organized and the trip met my expectations. Alpine Ramble Trek is a must for anyone visiting Nepal!
