The start part of the trek will go with the Marshyangdi River Bank. Then, you will cross the fantastic “Thorong-La” pass (5416m). The second part of the Annapurna circuit trek will follow the Kali Gandaki valley. During our trek, we will surrounded by the Annapurna ridges. It includes the best mountain view of the highest peak of Annapurna; among them, some are over 8000m. We will walk in different valleys and canyons and beside rushing streams.

It passes through a country inhabited by a wide diversity of people. It offers spectacular mountain scenery of the Himalayas. It goes north of the main Himalayan ranges onto the high and dry Tibetan plateau.

Usually, we can do the Annapurna circuit short trek in a clockwise direction. This will make it easy to make accessible stops for Throng La Pass. If you are trekking from mid-December to mid-March, the trail can be full of snow after Manang. We need to plan accordingly based on the weather and your physical fitness. Check the weather forecast before going ahead and trekking with other trekkers.

Annapurna Circuit Trek More Information

Temperature During Annapurna Circuit Trek

The weather and temperature in the Annapurna Circuit trek vary vastly depending upon the season. During Autumn (September, October, and November), the average temperature in the daytime is around 15°C, while it drops to about seven °C at night. Likewise, in winter (December, January, and February), the temperature in the lower region is five °C to -10 °C, while in the higher region, it may drop up to 20°C in the higher area.

Spring (March, April, and May) provides mild temperatures around 18°C during the day and five °C at night in the lower region. Generally, the upper region experiences a temperature of around 14°C.

Lastly, during the monsoon or summer (June, July, and August), the temperature can reach 23°C during the day.

Crowds in Annapurna Circuit Trek

Annapurna region is one of Nepal’s most popular trekking regions, and the best season to venture into this region is autumn and spring. So, if you plan an Annapurna Circuit trek during these seasons, be prepared to face the crowd!

Indeed, it is one of the busiest times, and with the number of trekkers, the trails, lodges, teahouses, and everywhere else are fully packed. Hence, it is advisable to book beforehand to avoid the hassles. Likewise, if you do not do well with crowds, you can opt for isolated trails in Annapurna.

Food Options

This is because the higher you climb, the more expensive the meals get, as the foods are transported to that altitude by foot or donkey. While almost every teahouse and lodge shares a similar menu, some might also have snack options.

Generally, a meal set includes rice, lentil soup, and vegetables. Non-vegetarian items include yak stew and steak; however, they are rare and only available in some villages. It is good to be a Vegetarian option on your Trek.

Side trips Annapurna Circuit trek.

Milarepa Cave (4,000m):

On the Annapurna Circuit Trek, we can explore other exciting landscapes and visit ritual sites. This cave lies at the foothill of Annapurna III on the north-faced side of the mountain.

This cave, Milarepa, belongs to the Buddhist saint Milarepa. People say that Milarepa had meditated under this cave. This is about a 3-hour walk from Manang. During the hike to the cave, we can see the beautiful scenery of the Marsyangdi Valley. We can also get the best mountain view of Chulus & Pisang peaks.

It is a very worthwhile side trip from the Bragha village in Manang. It is also a famous pilgrimage site with a fascinating backstory.

Ice Lake (4,600m)

We can hike to this beautiful Lake while we have a rest day in Manang for the Annapurna Circuit trekking. The Ice Lake Lake lies at the connecting neck of Chulu Far East. We need to climb 1100m, which takes about 4 hours from Braga village.

After the hard climbing, you will get the best scenery and a stunning mountain view. We can see a very close picture of Annapurna II, Annapurna IV, and Annapurna III. Also, we see a very close-up view of Gangapurna, Khangsahar, Tilicho Peak, and Chulu East. The Lake used to freeze during the night and morning in winter and spring, so it is called Ice Lake.

Gangapurna Lake (3,500m).

This easy walking hike from Manang is part of our Annapurna circuit trekking. Gangapurna Lake lies at the foothill of Mt. Gangapurna Glacier. The meltdown of Glacier Gangapurna formed it. It takes 20 minutes to reach this place.

We can also see the migratory ducks swimming at the Lake. The cascading Marsyangdi River flows through the side of this Lake. We can take a shorter hike above the Lake, which has exciting landscapes.

Titi Lake (2,550m)

The other part of the Annapurna circuit, the short trekking region, offers much. Lower Mustang Valley also has many things to see. Titi Lake is one of them, and we can reach it after hiking 1.5 hours uphill from Kokhethanti. We were walking to Lake Traverse through a pine tree forest. We will see its beauty when we go to the Lake. We can see Mt Dhaulagiri, Tukuche Peak, Thapa Peak, and Dhaulagiri Icefall from the Lake.

In the above paragraph, we discussed the possible side trips. There is also another place of interest in the Annapurna circuit trek. There are still many more potential places of interest that we need to mention in the above section.

The Dhaulagiri Icefalls.

Icefalls are difficult if you want to make a side trip to Dhaulagiri. It takes a two-day trip and requires good physical fitness. It would help if you were also in good health. This tough side trip of Annapurna circuit trekking gives the best experience.

At the same time, you are at the foot of the Dhaulagiri Icefall, which offers excellent views of Mount Dhaulagiri and the Annapurna ranges. We start this side trip from the small Larjung village.

We will pass by forests, green pastures, rhododendrons, and pine forests along the way. After another two hours of steep climbing, get to the icefall. While returning, it is faster, and we can take a shortcut.

Dhumba Lake

During our Annapurna circuit trek, we can make a great side trip to a beautiful Dhumba Lake from Jomsom. There is a clear-water lake at Mount Nilgiri’s base. The first part of the Trek goes to a beautiful Thini Village. From here, we will lead to Dhumba Lake, which is smaller than Tilicho Lake.

Dhumba Lake is a sacred Buddhist lake; many prayer flags are here.

Some locals claim to come here to pray for some sort of change in their lives for their betterment. If we walk about a 15-minute walk from the Lake, there is a small stupa called Kuchup Terenga Gomba. The Lake provides picturesque snow-clad peaks and spectacular views of the valley.

Furthermore, this is a calm and pleasant place to relax and one of the worthy stopovers if you’re in Jomsom. You can see the apple orchard and mud houses of the Thini Village. This gives a peek into the Mustang culture. It was also the old salt trade route between Tibet and Nepal. During the return trail, we can trek to Marpha Village, a famous Thakali village.

You can see the apple garden everywhere here, as Marpha is the apple capital of the nation. You can try the Apple brandy and look at the apple and apricot industry and the local Tibetan monastery.

Annapurna circuit trek difficulty

The difficulty level of the Annapurna circuit trek is difficult as it goes Throng la pass 5416m. The Trek requires ten days as a shorter version. Even though the Annapurna circuit trek doesn’t require prior trekking expertise, all the trekkers must be fit and get some training and preparation before coming. We categorize this Trek as a difficulty level. Most trekking is slow, and we make one rest day at Manang to make it easy.

The Trek will be more difficult if we finish it in less time with our acclimatization day. Some trekkers ask us if the Annapurna circuit trek is more complex than Kilimanjaro. On the Annapurna circuit trek, you will walk for longer distances. The elevation gained and lost each day on more challenging terrain than Kilimanjaro. So, it is much more complex than in Kilimanjaro.
Furthermore, The Annapurna Circuit Trek requires no technical expertise.

There is no need for mountaineering skills as it is a long hike at altitude. And we will make the itinerary at a slow pace. Anyone who has essential fitness can go for the Trek. We will walk daily for 6 to 7 hours, about 15 km, on a downhill and uphill rocky trail.

Annapurna circuit Trek Equipment list

The Annapurna Circuit Trek goes up to 5416 meters and follows a challenging, upward route, so it needs careful planning and preparation. You must bring the essential supplies and gear for this Trek, and you can only get the most miniature clothes and equipment. You can prepare for your journey by using the list on our webpage.

Altitude Sickness

While trekking to the Annapurna circuit trek, trekkers may experience altitude sickness. Although trekkers experience altitude sickness, we need to take care of it. A significant altitude sickness needs rapid attention and needs to be done needfully. Our trip directors and guides have a strong background in first aid. They get comprehensive training for it. We implore you to be alert about altitude sickness and guide you when you see any indications or symptoms.

The trek guide will tell you ways to prevent altitude sickness.

The easiest method to avoid altitude sickness when hiking is a slow walk. You can take your time and drink lots of water (at least 3–4 liters daily). The only treatment for severe cases of altitude sickness is to descend.

We also offer cancellation and refund facilities in case of an emergency. There is also a rescheduling option for both pre-scheduling and post-scheduling. But you have to give earlier notice if you do it. 20% of the trip booking amount is not refundable.

The answer to this question is yes. You can opt for a flight to go to a local destination. You can get a flight only if your journey’s starting and ending point is Pokhara.

The starting point for the Annapurna Circuit trek is Bhulbhule, and the ending is Pokhara. After that, you must take a return flight of about 25 minutes from Pokhara to Kathmandu. The cost of these will be your own.

Altitude sickness is a huge problem in the region over 3000 m. The Annapurna circuit trek region is at a high risk of Altitude sickness. The team above the Himalayas is well-trained and can quickly deal with such issues. We also have an oxygen monitoring device, an oximeter, to measure the oxygen level at high altitudes.

Our team members will provide you with regular health check-up facilities. There is also an emergency rescue service in case of any emergency. Following are some of the methods and options that may help to reduce the risk of Altitude sickness:

• Cutting off caffeinated and alcoholic items
• Avoiding smoking items
• Drinking at least 4 liters of water per day
• Trekking slowly and drinking water at regular intervals
• Having Enough Acclimatization
• Not skipping the acclimatization days
• Continuing with Diamox in case symptoms show up
• Drinking hot Garlic Soup early in the morning

You need two essential documents for this  Annapurna circuit trek: a Trekker’s Information System (TIMS) Card and an Annapurna Conservation Area Permit (ACAP).

These are the mandatory factors to begin your trek. But you need not worry; we will be responsible for the essential permit. So that your burden of these items will be on us, we will provide you with all the documents needed for this trek.

Good lodging is always essential during your trekking period. Considering those, we will manage a teahouse/lodge accommodation on your trek.

You can divide rooms for two people, one sharable squat style toilet. Toilets are outside of the house. Most of the teahouses will provide you with a blanket.

However, carrying a sleeping bag is advisable because the rooms have no heater. Thus, sleeping bags will help you in such a case.

Some lodges may provide hot water, but you have to pay extra charges for its use.

You can get a visa in Nepal after arriving at TIA (Tribhuwan International Airport).
You ought to bring the following necessary documents for a visa:

  • Valid passport with a blank page (The Passport  should have a validity of at least six months)
  • You should fill out the online application form for the Visa at immigration entry points.
  • Two recent passport-sized photographs

For single/multiple entries, it will cost USD 30 for 15 days, USD 50 for 30 days, and USD 100 for 90 days.

There is a provision for free visas for tourists from SAARC countries (except Afghanistan). The visa will be valid for 30 days; you must pay USD 3 per day for extra days.

For more information about the Visa, you can click Nepal visa information. You will get a complete guide about Nepal’s tourist visa policy.

ATMs may be found in Besisahar and Jomsom. However, there will not be any banks or ATMs along the trail to the Annapurna circuit trek. It would help if you withdrew some cash from ATMs in Kathmandu and Pokhara.

Best Trekking agency for Annapurna Circui trek
Star Star Star Star Star

I THOUGHT I WOULD DO IT ALONE when I was still in Israel planning my trip to Nepal. I was alone on my flight from Bangkok to Kathmandu.

I met Karen, a fantastic woman from New Zealand. Like her, I am 47 years old and planning to do the Annapurna circuit. We became a pretty strange couple: I am 23 years old and a woman who looks like my mother.

In Kathmandu, we met Edi, a 60-year-old who also wants to do the Annapurna circuit trek. We decided to stick together. When we thought about how to do the trekking, we wondered if we wanted a guide or a porter.

Then Karen said she knew someone she was corresponding with by email. He has a good reputation as a guide and from a Lonely Planet recommendation agency.

We met Puru and fell in love immediately. We saw a man who likes his job, trekking, and being with tourists.

While on the trek, the experience and knowledge of Puru was terrific. On the way, about the history, the culture of the locals, and the surroundings. Puru treated us like kings and took care of every small thing.

Our health (I got a little altitude sickness, and he cared for me very well), accommodations, and food. All we had to do was enjoy the trekking and the marvelous landscape of Nepal.

But guides like that are many. I am writing this letter because Puru is a remarkable man. Before, he was a guide who did his job. He is a human being who cares about the lives of the locals.

He uses tourism to develop the locals and help people experiencing poverty. He is also very ambitious, making him a great man. After the trek, I didn’t regret not doing it alone.

I had the pleasure and honor of trekking with Puru, and I am sure he will be a great man in Nepal one day.

I wish you all the best, and don’t miss Nepal. It was one of the most essential experiences in my life.

Star Star Star Star Star

We have recently returned from the successful completion of the Annapurna Circuit trek. We were with our guide, “Him Raj Adhikari” from Pokhara. He provided us with excellent services throughout our tour.

Yet we were fortunate enough, while on a trek, to meet up with another mixed-nationality group, who was being guided by their guide, Basu Duwadi from Kathmandu.

We were fortunate enough to spend many days in their company. We always found Puru helpful, adding to our enjoyment of the trek.

He guided his group, often us, for over ten days at a very comfortable pace. At the same time, he knew when you wanted your own space to socialize or explore the villages alone.

Apart from ensuring a smooth-functioning trek with chosen lodges, their guide cared about our well-being (in all respects) during the trip.

We are very interested in their culture and religion, and we appreciate that he was able to tell us so much. He told us about their ways of living and the local history, flora, and fauna.

He gave excellent service, and we ended up with some real friends in Nepal. We wish him the best of luck in his trekking business!

Also, we mentioned one evening that we wanted to travel overland through Tibet to Lhasa.

He made great efforts to gather the information we needed to make the trip successful. When we returned to Kathmandu, he arranged everything for us.

Given our challenging circumstances and political problems at the time, we are happy to recommend him to others looking for a good guide.”

Have a good trek.

Best Annapurna Circuit trekking with local guide
Star Star Star Star Star

From the beginning of the Annapurna circuit trek, Puru was there to help give advice and plan the trip. He was prompt in replying to emails and provided excellent advice.

He could match me with a guide that fits my needs. He considered who I could spend time with. He was fantastic at booking my domestic and international flights.

He was always happy to help. My guide, Jimmy, was very informative, patient + helpful. He was knowledgeable about the mountains, people, religion, Language, culture, and food. He was a fabulous friend + cook; he was always putting my health + needs first. He made me feel like a part of the Nepali Family.

The expenses with Puru + a guide, Jimmy, were priceless. As a Solo female traveler, Jimmy and Puru’s Company.

Thanks to everyone

We booked the Annapurna circuit trek above the Himalayas. Unluckily, we got stuck in a snowstorm during the tour. We had to stay for eight days in the same village.

Puru contacted us daily to check if we were ok. He even got our family back home when the Wi-Fi failed. Everything was well organized, and we could enjoy the trek without any worries.

Thank you for a fantastic experience!

We came to Nepal to do the Anapurna circuit trek. Mr. Puru helped us organize everything and gave us the best trek plan for our 14 days. We had a delicious porter and guide. He helped us get transportation to the starting point and a flight from Pokhara to Katmandu.

We were 2, me and my son 😊
Everything was great.

He stayed in touch with us daily to see that everything was ok.
So, if you are looking for someone to help you organize everything.

This is the right agency if you want to do it for the trek and more!

Above The Himalayas, Trekking was fantastic!

From the first time I emailed Puru to discuss the possibilities of my fantastic experience to the first meeting to introducing me to my excellent porter/guide (Gayan) to my sad goodbyes, they were nothing but caring, attentive, informative, and passionate about their customer, ME!!!

I was fortunate to travel ten days solo up to the Thorong Pass on the Annapurna Circuit trek (5416M). I was very nervous, unfit, and unsure if I could make it. But Gayan led me through the difficult times with great care and attention.

I highly recommend the Annapurna Throng Pass trek. You can use Above The Himalayan trekking for your arrangements, whatever they may be.

Good luck, and if you have any questions, DON’T! JUST DO IT!!!!

Great trek, Best local guide, Highly recommended company
Star Star Star Star Star

I want to recommend the “Above the Himalayan Trekking” agency. They provided us with excellent, top-notch service this October. Thanks to Mr. Puru Timalsena (Managing director) and our guide, Mr. Dipak Karki.

It all started with an inquiry about the price of a mountain flight to Everest. They respond to all our emails in every detail. Since we were planning to trek the Annapurna Circuit, we put our trust in this agency.

We hire a porter/guide through It for our Annapurna circuit trek. We are two inexperienced trekkers from Israel. It was the first trek for both of us) and the top priority was hiring an excellent guide.

It turned out that our choice was correct. Mr. Dipak Karki is a very experienced (it was his 19th Annapurna circuit) and friendly guide. His English is also excellent.

It was a joy to trek with him. Mr. Puru Timalsena booked excellent hotels in Kathmandu and Pokhara.

It is (much better than we were able to find ourselves). He also provided a lot of other services. He helps us confirm our Nepal Airlines tickets or pick us up at the airport.

So, our stay in Nepal was enjoyable, and our Annapurna circuit trek was a huge success. With prior trekking experience, we could hike some 300 km. Also, visit the remote Tilicho Lake and cross the Thorong La.

I am very grateful for all the service the “Above the Himalayan Trekking” agency provides.

We had a great time and got lots of help up and down the mountains. We had a few altitude problems, and our guide helped us a lot. He answered all our questions and let us order breakfast from our bed.

The porters were ever cheerful, carrying all our gear and keeping us dancing each night.

Awesome Annapurna circuit trekking & Villages Tour with the best company
Star Star Star Star Star

We want to congratulate Mr. PuruTimalena for his best work. We like his professionalism and exceptional attention to customers.

Puru organized two Annapurna circuit treks in enjoyable and accessible ways. He made the itinerary and suggested our way in. In the first field, We did (The Royal Annapurna Trek).

The trek has unique views over cultivated fields. The relationship with local children was excellent. We enjoyed the company of our guide and his team a lot. We felt they treated us like kings every moment and gave us more of their people than any tourist deserves.

The second Annapurna trekking allows us to take part in everyday life. We visited Puru’s village, Pursuk, with his family as special guests. The experience was very intensive as well as instructive.

The example of European people living in a big city is different. We are sure we will never forget them, especially children and elderly people. I recommend this incredible experience.

Thanks to Puru’s efficient working practices. They try to fulfill all and more than we expected. Be sure you can trust him.

Finally, we especially thank Mr. Purna Kark, our guide in the Royal Annapurna trek. His team for their kind attention, good nature, and camp cooking. They made food better than in many luxurious restaurants.

We highly recommend Puru and his ‘Above the Himalaya Trekking Company’ to anyone looking for a professional travel company for any treks or tours through Nepal.

We had arranged a trek to EBC but could not fly out of Katmandu due to poor weather. Puru promptly reorganized a unique and adventurous trip through the Annapurna Circuit trek at no extra cost to us and, at times, a price to himself.

Puru is efficient, honest, and practical with his advice; nothing is too much trouble for him. His guides and porters are of excellent standing and were very experienced and knowledgeable about the effects of acclimatization.

Thank you, Puru, for making our trip a success.

I had never trekked before- the help of a great guide and porter. We took them by Puru or”Above The Himalaya Trekking,” which made all the difference in the world.

Being a group of two and having two support staff was a luxury. Our Guide was knowledgeable. This was fantastic when you weren’t sure what you were setting yourself in, too!!

I appreciated the flexibility that only a small group can provide. The professionalism and dedication of both our Porter and Guide are the best. They provide us with a trip that fits us for a reasonable cost.

I did two treks with Puru Above The Himalaya Trekking Annapurna

Annapurna Circuit Trek In March
Star Star Star Star Star

Annapurna Circuit trek from March to April. I started my web-based trekking inquiries with another Katmandu trekking company. Communication with this company was sporadic and unclear.

After that, I switched to Above the Himalayas. Puru answered each email inquiry. I also used Skype. I explained my idea of doing the Annapurna circuit solo to Puru. It was a risky journey for me.

I am 65 years old, with post-cancer and post-heart attacks. So why would I choose this challenging trip?…… Because I needed this challenge?

Puru matched me with guide/porter Suresh. We traveled together for 15 days for our Annapurna circuit trek. I was free as a bird to listen and watch all around me. Suresh took care of all the details that might stress a foreign trekker.

He carried my backpack and knew the quiet and clean lodges. He expedited the meal orders and ensured tea stops. He handled all the paperwork at police checkpoints. These things were not my concern.

He was my mentor in Nepali customs. Traveling in large groups diminishes one’s connection with the local environment. Traveling alone, I was more inclined to hear and see all the subtleties around me.

I remember the language and moods of the people of the Nepali village. The smells of the pine forest and the spring flowering trees are excellent—the aromas of incense and simmering curries, the roar of wind and rivers.

Yes, I took away more than I expected from this journey. It was a challenging Annapurna circuit trek. But the satisfaction and education I received were priceless! With the support of AHT, the trip worked for me. , I felt safe and cared for. THANK-YOU AHT

Notes:

The upper Pisang to Manang was a favorite section. You can stop in Kalopani, and Sikha would make a more pace. Extra night in Pokhara was an exciting addition.

I traveled the same route with like-minded solo Trekkers for several days. We shared daily experiences over an evening meal.

The trek itself is excellent. The guide/porter assigned, Sitaram, is knowledgeable and professional. They were caring and patient and pointed out the mountain views. (which I would have missed out on) along the Annapurna circuit trek.

The duration of the Annapurna circuit trek was planned for each day according to my fitness level. He gave options on which village to stop over for rest, etc. He even got me a bamboo stick as the walking stick, as I did not manage to buy one.)
