Annapurna Circuit Trek 2023

The Annapurna Circuit Trek is a renowned trekking route in Nepal that offers a diverse and breathtaking experience. Here’s some information about the Annapurna Circuit Trek.

Annapurna Circuit Trek Duration: The trek typically takes around 16 to 17 days, depending on your chosen itinerary and walking pace. The trek starts and ends in either Besisahar or Nayapul, with Thorong La Pass (5,416  Meters/17,769 feet) being the highest point of the trek.

How to go Annapurna Circuit Trek: The trek takes you through a variety of landscapes, from lush green valleys and terraced fields to an arid high-altitude desert. The trail passes through diverse ethnic villages, including Manang, Pisang, Muktinath, Jomsom, Marpha, Tatopani, and Ghorepani Poon Hill offering insights into the local culture, traditions, and lifestyle.

What will you see from Annapurna Circuit Trek: The Annapurna Circuit is renowned for its stunning mountain vistas. Throughout the trek, you’ll enjoy panoramic views of towering peaks, including Annapurna Massif (Annapurna I-IV), Dhaulagiri, Manaslu, and several other Himalayan ranges. The landscapes range from rhododendron forests to barren, high-altitude terrain.

Cross the Thorong La Pass is a significant highlight of the Annapurna Circuit Trek. It’s a challenging and exhilarating experience, as you navigate through steep ascents and descents at high altitudes. Proper acclimatization and physical fitness are crucial for a successful crossing of the pass.

Along the Annapurna Circuit, there are teahouses available for accommodation. These teahouses provide basic lodging and meals, allowing you to have a comfortable resting place after a day of Trekking. The amenities in teahouses can vary, but most offer a warm bed, simple meals, and hot showers (for an additional cost). It’s advisable to carry a sleeping bag.

The best time for the Annapurna Circuit Trek: Annapurna Circuit Trek is during the spring (March to May) and autumn (September to November) seasons. The weather during these months is generally stable, with clear skies and comfortable temperatures. The monsoon season (June to August) brings heavy rainfall, and winter (December to February) can be extremely cold and snowy, making trekking more challenging.

Necessary Trekking Permits for Annapurna Circuit Trek: To trek in the Annapurna Conservation Area, you need to obtain the Annapurna Conservation Area Permit (ACAP) and the Trekkers’ Information Management System (TIMS) card. These permits can be obtained in Kathmandu or Pokhara through registered trekking agencies or at the entry points of the conservation area.

The Annapurna Circuit Trek offers a combination of stunning natural beauty, cultural encounters, and a sense of achievement as you complete the challenging Thorong La Pass (5416 Meters). It’s important to plan and prepare well, including proper acclimatization, physical fitness, and necessary gear. Hiring a guide and porter is an option for those who prefer additional support and local expertise during the trek.

Drinking water for Annapurna Circuit Trek: Most teahouses along the Lower Mustang Trek offer boiled water for a small fee. Boiling water for at least 3 minutes kills most bacteria and viruses. However, ensure that the water has been brought to a rolling boil and allowed to cool before drinking.

Where do we eat our dinner: Meals are always served in the dining room, so you can meet other trekkers there. In higher accommodations, the dining room usually has a fire around dinnertime.

If you are walking for the first time in the Mountain area: No matter who you are, as long as you are reasonably fit, can walk for 5-6 hours a day, and trek-hike a few uphills, the Nepal Alsace Trek & Expedition team will support you to the fullest to transform your dream of standing Jomsom to Muktinath into reality.

Charging Batteries Service during the Trek: In most of the trekking regions, there is electricity whereby you will be able to charge your iPod and Camera batteries but they charge you extra money 100 to 400 Nepali rupees per hour.

If You need communication Service during the Trek: In Kathmandu, you can buy Ncell SIM cards almost anywhere. These cards are very helpful when trekking to the Annapurna region. In most places, Ncell’s network coverage is excellent, except for the Everest region trekking area.
