Hike the Annapurna Circuit


The Annapurna Circuit is the most famous trek within the Annapurna mountain range of central Nepal. The total length of the route varies between 160–230 km (100-145 mi), depending on where the trek is ended. The trek begins at Besisahar or Bhulbhule in the Marshyangdi river valley, rises to an altitude of 5,400m on the Thorung La pass and concludes in the Kali Gandaki Gorge. Besisahar can be reached after a seven-hour drive from Kathmandu.

It has often been voted as the best long-distance trek in the world and usually takes about 15–20 days, leaving from Kathmandu with a stopover in Pokhara before returning to the capital. Tea houses and lodges along the circuit are available for meals and accommodations though some opt for tents.
