Annapurna Circuit Trek - 17 Days

Trekking in the Annapurna region is the best approach to have a close look at the formation of mysterious nature's wonders which have facilitated this region to be highly concentrated trekking spot amongst the world since 1977 when it was first time opened for the foreigners. This circuit of Annapurna offers more variety than any other walk of equivalent length, and takes us through virtually every type of scenery that Nepal has to offer. There are superb views of Annapurna and Dhaulagiri, and the constant variety of landscapes ranges from sub-tropical through alpine to an arid semi-desert akin to Tibet; at the climax of the trek there's a formidable 5416m. pass, the Thorong La, to cross.

This is a lodge-based trek, so we spend time in villages inhabited by many of Nepal's different tribes, both Buddhist and Hindu. Every day brings opportunities to gain an insight into the local culture and interact with the local communities whose land we are walking through, whether by bartering for souvenirs, talking to the inquisitive children or relaxing at a tea house.

Though it is certainly demanding enough for the seasoned trekker, the Annapurna Circuit is still an excellent introduction to walking in Nepal for those who are confident of their fitness.
