The Annapurna Circuit Trek is one of Nepal’s most well-known and classical trek routes. For scenery and cultural diversity, this has long been considered the best trek in Nepal and one of the world’s classic walks. It follows the Marsyangdi Valley to the north of the main Himalayan range and crosses a 5416m pass to descend into the dramatic desert-like, Tibetan-style scenery of the upper Kali Gandaki Valley. .
Whether you are organising your Annapurna Circuit Trek from Kathmandu or Pokhara you will need to do some prep work to ensure your trek is a success. This Annapurna Circuit guide will provide you with all the information you need to make that happen!
The entire Annapurna Circuit lies within the 7,629 sq. km Annapurna Conservation Area, Nepal’s first and largest conservation area. The Annapurna Circuit is a 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 motor transportation is used and where the trek is ended. This trek crosses two different river valleys and encircles the Annapurna Massif.
Annapurna Circuit best time to go is June through September is the monsoon season, when as much as 70% of the annual rainfall occurs. This is also when rock fall and landslides are most likely to occur. That leaves two times when hiking the Annapurna Circuit is best: October through November and mid-March to mid-April.
Note: The Annapurna Circuit is typically hiked in a counter-clockwise direction. You can hike the Annapurna Circuit in a clockwise direction, but I would not recommend it – going over Thorung la Pass would be much more difficult going clockwise (We did not encounter anyone hiking clockwise during our trek). Hiking the Annapurna Circuit will take anywhere between 14 to 22 days, depending on how many rest days and side treks you choose to take.
