Annapurna Circuit Trek
The Annapurna Circuit trek is one of the Himalayas most famous treks. This trek is achievable for most fit hill walkers and includes a crossing of the Thorong La (pass) at 5416 metres, the highpoint of the trip in terms of altitude and fantastic views on the Himalayas.
The Annapurna Circuit Trek is sociable and fun, not too demanding, and nights are spent in comfortable lodges where the food is fresh and good quality. It's a circular trek encircled Mount Annapurna (8091m), going up one valley and over the high pass to descend a different valley. Part of this route is now accessible to vehicles but we still recommend walking the whole route!
We generally have groups of up to ten, and you will be led by Sherpa guides who work for Adventure Alternative Nepal. The groups meet up in Kathmandu where we have a guesthouse if you wish to use it, or we can book one of the many hotels in the capital. From there it's a flight to Pokhara and a drive to the start of the trek.
For more information and booking please visit the Annapurna Circuit trek’s page of Adventure Alternative UK.
Please note that the required number of participants is at a minimum of 2 and a maximum of 12 participants. Nevertheless, it doesn't mean that you have to be a group of 2 to book the trip.
