Interested in the walk of a lifetime? Let’s talk!
Let’s say you’ve always wanted to visit the Himalayas and immerse yourself in Nepalese culture, but you’re not interested in the crowds to summit the world’s largest peaks. Enter the Annapurna Circuit.
With a relatively low maximum elevation of 13,550 feet at Thorung La Pass, and a length ranging from 100 to 145 miles, this trek gives you a well-rounded and balanced introduction to or continuation of your Himalayan explorations. Plus, you’ll trek around one of the most dangerous and most striking peaks in the world- Annapurna itself (26,545ft).
The trek leaves from Pokhara and ends in Taghring, and takes around two weeks. This gives you plenty of time to trek and climb at a moderate pace, and to learn more about the spirituality and history of the Himalayas- incredibly interesting subjects for such an extreme and isolated region of the world. This trek is done with the help of Sherpas. You have the option of staying in teahouses or camping.
The Annapurna Circuit has it all:
• A well-maintained trail passing through several villages, giving you opportunities to meet locals, stock up on supplies, and learn about the Himalayan way of life.
• Stunning views of famous peaks and ranges, as well as a glimpse of the Tibetan Plateau.
• The freedom to explore beautiful monasteries, both old and new.
• A solid introduction to mountaineering and high-altitude trekking, as the trail goes through countless changes in elevation and reaches a maximum altitude of 13,550 feet (Thorung La).
• Journeys through multiple ecosystems and landforms.
We guarantee that the Annapurna Circuit is an immersion experience you’ll never forget, and will make you want to come back for more. It is a slower approach to visiting the region, without the chaos of summiting huge peaks, and is perfect for those who appreciate history and the realm of spirituality.
