Since its opening in 1977, the Annapurna Circuit has been renowned as one of the world’s greatest trekking destinations for both cultural diversity and scenic grandeur. Despite being fragmented by roads, this trek still lives up to its reputation with many side trips and alternate routes available, and can be tailored to fit your personal needs! The traditional route circumnavigates the Annapurna massif, home of the world’s 10th tallest peak, and traces two great Nepali river valleys, the Marsyangdi and the Kali Gandaki. The environmental variation along the trek is unrivalled as you ascend from merely 800m in the jungles and Rhododendron forests of the lower Marsyangdi valley to over 5,400m at the snow-covered Throng La pass, then down into the arid Mustang Region in the rain-shadow of the Himalayas. Abundant wildlife, along with many religious and cultural sites and a hot spring are other highlights of this classic trek!
