Overview

Book
This classic Himalayan trek, first opened in 1977, is still magnificent and just got better with our updated itinerary. We ascend the Marsyandi Valley, before crossing the wild 5416m Thorong La (pass) and into the Trans Himalayan region, protected from the monsoon by the high passes and mountains to the south. This trek offers incredible cultural and geographical diversity. The trail starts in the lush green foothills of the Annapurna range that are dotted with Hindu villages. Views of the Annapurna range are inspiring right from the start of this trek. There is a dramatic change as we trek north of the Great Himalayan Divide and cross the Thorong La. We are now on the Tibetan Plateau, a stark and rugged landscape, where the culture is predominantly Buddhist. We then trek through the Kali Gandaki Valley, one of the deepest gorges on earth, with Annapurna and Dhaulagiri towering some 5000 metres above, before returning to Pokhara via a spectacular mountain flight from Jomsom.

Highlights

    • Savour magnificent mountain views across to Mustang and Western Tibet
    • Cross the high pass of Thorong La (5416m)
    • Explore timeless and sacred villages, such as Muktinath
    • Feast your eyes on Manaslu (8156m), the world's 7th highest mountain
    • Enjoy a fully supported camping based trek with hearty meals prepared daily
    • Experience a Himalayan mountain flight from Kathmandu to Pokhara and Jomsom
    • Explore Kathmandu

We have just returned from our amazing travel experience and I would like to say thank you for being so helpful and patient with us before we went... we will remember it for the rest of our lives. No doubt we have been ‘bitten’ by the trekking bug and will consider other treks now!

Overall it was a fantastic trip! Culturally so exciting and an amazing experience! The bonding within the group and the relationships one develop with staff is a great experience too. I will for sure return to Nepal and I will definately travel with World Expeditions again. It ranks among my top listed adventure experiences!

The Annapurna Circuit is a challenge, but making it to the top of Thorong La pass was well worth the effort. Having a great team leader & support staff makes it a lot easier. Would recommend this trip & company.

This is the second trek I've done with World Expeditions, in 6 months and I have been blown away with their service. From booking staff to all the trekking staff. Everything was taken care of and nothing was too much trouble. I will definitely be travelling with them again. When it comes to the Himalayas, World Expeditions are the best.

Overall trip was well planned and executed. Our leader was very good and extremely helpful to ensure we were all well looked after. Scenery was fantastic, good group of trekkers, guides, porters and support staff. Would recommend to other potential trekkers who want to enjoy a different culture and great scenery.

I did the Annapurna Circuit in March 2017 and could not rate/rave highly enough the staff/meals/accommodation on this trip. This was a trip of a lifetime and was catered to for maximum enjoyment! If you are looking to get away from daily life and enjoy the tranquility of tenting in the Himalayas this is the trip for you.

What a wonderful experience! Nepal is the most beautiful country with an extremely positive vibe from people who do not have much. I have returned home humbled by such wonderful people. Harka - our leader and all his team worked continually and were always smiling - ready to help at all times. The kitchen staff produced incredible meals - sometimes having to carry water from afar and cook in difficult conditions. Nothing was too much for them. Thank you to Harka and his wonderful team!

World Expeditions offered a true wilderness adventure. The trek was challenging (in a good way) and exceptionally well managed for acclimatisation. Our guide Harka and his team were incredibly professional, genuinely caring and focused on ensuring we enjoyed the amazing Himalaya mountains. The camps were very comfortable and the food was plentiful and varied.

Nepal is a beautiful country, stunning scenery and wonderful people. Progress and development is changing the countryside and it is an interesting time of transition. Seek out the isolated rural beauty at every opportunity.

The trip was mind blowing in the sense of where we were, how we saw it and the scale of the scenery. But World Expeditions made it possible for us to see that whilst camping without us having to worry about any of the work of camping. The team that made it possible were outstanding in every way and I can't praise them enough. How you did this trip for the money I have no idea, it was excellent in every way. Thank you.
