Annapurna Circuit Trek lets you tread on ancient trails and walk through a diverse landscape. Stay at family-run teahouses and enjoy local hospitality.

Walk past sacred mani walls and spin Buddhist prayer wheels, sending out a prayer to the mountain gods.  Interact with locals and experience indigenous mountain cultures. Get awed by the magnificence of the towering peaks and frozen lakes. Ascend the high pass of Thorong La and reach the edge of the Tibetan plateau. One of the classic long-distance treks in the world, Annapurna Circuit Trek is a Himalayan adventure beyond compare!


Annapurna Circuit Trek, a classic trek in the Nepal Himalaya, takes you to one of the most popular trekking trails in the world. A favorite of many trekkers who have been to the Himalayas, hiking the Annapurna Circuit allows you to complete a loop in the Annapurna region. The journey takes you from the lush green terraced farms to barren landscapes surrounded by soaring icy mountains.

Cross two river valleys, frozen mountain lakes and hike to the edge of the Tibetan Plateau

Your trek to Annapurna Circuit begins from Lower Pisang. Tread on ancient trails used by locals and traders trading along the old Tibet trade route. Cross one of the highest mountain passes in the world, Thorong La Pass. There are many highlights of this trek – the fascinating journey past the two river valleys, Marshyangdi and Kali Gandaki, the crossing of the challenging Thorong La Pass (bordering Tibet), the exciting hike through the Kali Gandaki gorge to Muktinath a holy mountain shrine sacred to both Hindus and Buddhists. But the one which will remain etched in your mind is the walk through the high altitude lakes of Tilicho Lake and Ice Lake. After crossing the Thorong La head down to Muktinath. And make your way to the mountain town of Jomsom

Complete this unforgettable loop with our experienced guide!

Throughout your journey our experienced trek leader will be there to guide you. He will dispense valuable advice and nuggets of information about the people and places along the trail. Many who have completed the Annapurna Circle swear that this is the best trek that Nepal has to offer. The circuit is highly recommended by all trekkers as a spectacular trekking route. The diversity of landscape, mountain views, culture and people you encounter during the trek are incomparable.  

Short on time or a first-time trekker? Do check out these treks!

If you don't have much time to spare or have fitness issues, you can choose our shorter and slightly easier  Annapurna Base Camp Trek. It takes you from the verdant mountainside villages and terraced fields to the base of the Annapurna Massif. For families with kids looking for a Himalayan experience, we recommend our easy Ghorepani Poonhill Trek. This is also an excellent introductory trek for beginners. 

Best Time To Go

Spring (March to May) and autumn (late September to November) are the ideal seasons. The daytime temperature is just perfect during this time. It is neither too hot nor too cold during these times. Nights on the mountains are usually cold. Above 4,000 meters, you can expect nighttime temperatures to drop as low as -10 degrees.

Why Annapurna Circuit Trek?

  • Cross the Thorong La pass and hike across the world’s deepest gorge Kali Gandaki Gorge
  • Visit the mesmerizing high altitude mountain lakes of Tilicho (4920m) and Ice Lake(4600m)
  • Take the lesser known trails that avoids the dusty motorable roads
  • Traverse two river valleys- Marshyangdi River Valley and Kali Gandaki River Valley
  • Walk along an ancient trade route that’s still used by mountain dwellers
  • Immerse yourself in mountain culture
  • Close up views of 7000 and 8000 metre peaks- Annapurna Massif, Lamjung Himal, Dhaulagiri

 Is this trip suitable for you?

  • As this trek takes you to elevations above 5000 metres, you need to have a high level of physical fitness.
  • From Besisahar, you board a four wheeler and drive on a rough jeep track to Lower Pisang. The ride can be best described as an off-road adventure as the vehicle winds through a gravelly and mountainous route. 
  • You begin your trek from Lower Pisang (3,200m). The trail is filled with steep ascents and descents and river crossings via traditional wooden bridges. The most difficult part of the trek is the crossing of the Thorung La pass (5,460m) - the highest point of the trek.
  • If you can easily hike on rough terrain and can climb stairs without any difficulty, you can do this trek. No technical climbing involved.

But some travelers want the freedom to explore options that packaged tours rarely offer. Taking into account the needs of an average traveler, we have designed two packages - Standard and Deluxe. A Standard Package offers a combination of services at a lower price and freedom to do certain things your own way (for instance, choosing your own accommodation in the city). Choose a Deluxe Package, if you want to take the stress out of planning your trip. After booking a Deluxe Package, you can rest easy knowing that the experts are there to plan your holiday. If you have zeroed in on your destination, all you have to do is select the package that suits your travel style and book your trip!

I did the Annapurna Circuit trek of 16 days with a bunch of my friends. It was challenging no doubt thus my eyes are shining with the joy of this accomplishment. The stunning views of the trek are to die for and being on the top of Thorongla Pass is incomparable. Huge shout out for our guide and porters without whom we couldn’t have done this trek. The team encouraged us when we were tired to move further and helped us to be comfortable in our own pace. A good sense of humor and jokes we perfect to deal with a whining group like ours!
Good Value,

It’s undoubtedly challenging but exceedingly rewarding. Good combination of dramatically high mountains and rural villages of Nepal. The trek leading to Thorangla pass is a memory for a lifetime. Crossing high pass over 5000 meters is more of a personal accomplishment for me. Glad to make it with mild Acute Mountain Sickness. My first 2-weeks long trek in the Himalayas and felt like my training in gym and day hike in weekends back home helped me a lot.

Go on your pace, don’t rush, breathe while enjoying the mountains and traditional villages. I would definitely recommend this trip to everyone who is skeptical about doing this trek!

Although the trek is physically demanding there isn’t any dramatic climb over boulders. The altitude hits you as you trek higher in elevation and makes a non-intimidating ascend difficult. The trek from Thorongla pass to Muktenath is excruciating but rewarding as well. The scenery with astounding snowcapped mountains was amazing and the locals were warm and welcoming. Lake Tilicho was stunning! Waterfalls, lakes, monasterary, suspension bridges and ancient villages are the added bonus to then trek in the wilderness.
Best Destination,I like itinerary,

Crossing Thorongla pass and that feeling of being on top of the world is still fresh.
Pack a bit of patience and enjoy the trek.

I would like to express my gratitude to Third Rock Adventures’ team for their wonderful service  during our Annapurna Circuit Trek. We had a fantastic trek with our man Shiva, guiding our group. An experienced guide, he was prudent enough to adjust the itinerary when a couple of our group members felt a little unwell. We had brief spells of bad weather up in the mountains, but the crew’s enthusiasm and encouragement buoyed our spirits and motivated us to carry on. All in all it was an outstanding trek. I have come away a stash of great pictures and memories that will last a lifetime. Our group started off as a bunch of strangers, but by the end of the trek all of us became good friends. Thank you for a well-organized and safe trek. I have no hesitation in recommending Third Rock to anyone considering a trip to Nepal!

Best Destination,
Yes
Because I had been meaning to do the Annapurna Circuit for a pretty long long time.
Meeting all the members during trip briefing, swapping stories after dinner at the end of each day's trek and experiencing the cultural as well as geographical diversity of this tiny country.
Wear a wide brimmed hat if you suffer from sunburns easily, like I do.

My sincere thanks goes out to the team at Third Rock Adventures for organizing a memorable trek. I completed the Annapurna Circuit and accomplished a lifelong dream, all thanks to the wonderful people at Third Rock Adventures! Yam, our mountain guide proved to be an excellent leader. He took great care of us and ensured that we had a hassle-free trek. The porters were uncomplaining, humble and cheerful. The altitude hit me as we neared the high pass at Thorung La. But I was okay after taking Diamox and spending a day at Thorung Phedi, just below the pass.

The whole trek was filled with amazing sights. Tilicho and Ice Lake were spectacular, but the trek’s highlight was the crossing of the Thorung La pass. It was kind of difficult but worth the effort. The views were lovely and we spent a great deal of time taking pictures and soaking in the views. Part of the trail felt like Tibet. Manang, Pisang and other villages above the 3000m mark seemed culturally more Tibetan. The visit to the shrine at Muktinath was insightful. Much as I enjoyed the trek, it was a relief to arrive in Jomsom and enjoy a hot shower and a can of beer. I am fully satisfied with the way this company organized my Annapurna Circuit Trek. I definitely recommend this company and use them again.

Good Value, I liked the itinerary.
Yes.
Beuse this trek has been in my bucket-list for ages.
Hikes to Ice Lake and Tilicho Lake, turning the prayer wheels and gazing at the snow-covered mountains that stood so close. The crossing of the Thorung La Pass was also meorable.
Though roads have been built along the circuit, the place is still beautiful. Annapurna Circuit has not lost its charm. Don't let people talk you out of walking along this beautiful part of the world just because a rough jeep track goes through it. This trek is still one of the best treks in the world. You should do it.

QUESTION AND ANSWER

Can I consume alcohol and smoke while trekking?

 No, it is advisable to stay away from alcohol or cigarettes while trekking in high altitude. At higher altitudes there is less oxygen and your body will be struggling to adjust. Drinking alcohol and smoking leads to dehydration and poor breathing , conditions that can up your chances of contacting Acute Mountain Sickness. Moreover alcohol as well as cigarettes may not be readily available in the mountains. Even if they are, it will be quite expensive. 

How safe is Nepal for tourists or travelers?

 The reason why many tourists prefer to holiday in Nepal is because this country is one of the safest destinations in the world. It is safe for both male as well female travellers. A female traveller can travel safely throughout Nepal without fear of eve teasing or molestation. Nepalese are generally friendly and Nepalese men tend to act respectfully towards females, especially foreigners. 

Though there is much concern among tourists about safety after the 2015 earthquake, there have been no major tremors in the recent years.  Some who only have a sketchy idea about the political situation are also concerned about the Maoist conflict. Please be informed that the Maoist conflict was resolved more than a decade ago after the abolition of monarchy. Nepal is now a democratic country and has a stable government. The country is peaceful and tourist-friendly
