Annapurna circuit is just one of our adventure holiday trek in Nepal. Book your Annapurna trek adventure in Nepal today with Adventure Connexion. Annapurna Trek cost start from USD 1150. The Annapurna Circuit trek is a classic trek in Nepal. Experience the Himalaya on a trekking holiday in Nepal with the Nepal trekking specialists.

 

The Annapurna Circuit was once a three-week journey through the pristine valleys and villages of the Annapurna range, but the construction of two roads encroaching up both sides has shrunken the route significantly. When the final road to Manang is complete, the date of which is unknown and consistently delayed, the roadless section of the Annapurna Circuit may be reduced to as few as five days. First, the Annapurna Circuit isn’t lost yet. Depending on how far up the roads you decide to start and finishing walking, the abbreviated version can now be completed 10–17 days. On the Besisahar side (east) the road up the Marsyangdi Valley reaches greater Chamje (it’s difficult to pinpoint the precise culmination of the road because it deteriorates past Syange and passability depends on the weather conditions, landslides, construction, etc.). On the west side of the Circuit the road extends up the Kali Gandaki Valley to Jomsom. Jeeps and flights are available from Jomsom to Pokhara. There still remains at least 10–12 days and 145 km of roadless trekking from Chamje to Jomsom.

Detail Itinerary

  • Day 01 Arrival in Kathmandu (1310m). Transfer to Hotel.

    Our trip starts in the lively and bustling city of Kathmandu with an explosion to the senses - take a deep breath! We’ll be there to smooth the transition; a friendly face from Active will meet you at Kathmandu Airport and accompany you to our hotel to regroup after your flight. Kathmandu is the capital of Nepal and the Kathmandu Valley is the political and cultural heart of the Kingdom. Evening some briefing about Annapurna Circuit Trek with trekking guide. Overnight at Hotel.

  • Day 02 Drive to Besisahar then Khudi. Trek to Ngadi (950m).

    Drive Kathmandu to Besisahar then take a local jeep to Ngadi (950m) 8 hours. An early departure from the City of Glory, we drive west out of the Kathmandu Valley and along the Trisuli Valley towards the stunning mountain views of Langtang, Ganesh Himal, Annapurna and Dhaulagiri Ranges. At the half way point we change course and start to follow the Marsyangdi Khola (river) until Besisahar. The drive begins with a gentle walk following the Marsyangdi Khola, through several small villages until Bhulbule. The village lies on the banks of Marsyangdi Khola, in a large luscious green valley, which offers a distant view of mountains in the Manaslu range. It is here we enter the Annapurna conservation area and register for the first time at an ACAP (Annapurna Conservation Area Project) checkpoint. The circuit’s trail today is an easy start as we cross the first of many suspension bridges shortly after Bhulbule, and then follows a flat path through rice fields. Do not be deceived; the circuit becomes more challenging, as the numerous ascents we encounter will prove. Continuing along Marsyangdi Khola’s east bank the trail ascends through a big green valley towards Bahundanda passing through the villages of Ngadi
