nepal: Annapurna Circuit Trek
Hiking Annapurna Circuit is an experience like none other. With views of renowned 7,000m and 8,000m peaks, lush rhododendron forests, and altitudes as high as 17,000 ft, this trek truly is all about the journey. The adventure starts right away with a days drive along the Manang Road, filled with over 80 waterfalls, and encased by 2,000 ft cliffs both above and below. From there, each day is filled with breath-taking views, rich cultural immersion, and delicious food. We take each day at a moderate distance and pace, allowing for plenty of time to enjoy the sights and never feel rushed. Each village along the way has its own unique feel and sights to take in. We have a beautiful 18 day itinerary planned, but allow for extra days depending on weather, energy, and if the group decides, side treks.
