The Annapurna Circuit Trek is a classic route for trekkers from around the world. It is also known as Annapurna Round trek. It follows pristine trails through the Annapurna range in central Nepal. The Annapurna Region has opened to trekkers over three and a half decades ago and has become a favourite due to its incredible views and serene surroundings. The Annapurna Circuit Trek offers a diverse array of wildlife, flora, fauna, and culture. Throughout the trek, you will pass through numerous villages with their own unique cultures and traditions. The Annapurna Circuit trail is north of the major Himalayan range to mid trans-Himalayan. You will cross the Thorung-La pass at an altitude of 5,416m, touch the edge of the Tibetan plateau, and have magnificent views of Annapurna (II, III, IV), Lamjung, Manaslu, Gangapurna, Nilgiri, Tilicho Peak and Dhaulagiri.

The Annapurna Circuit trek is moderate to comparatively challenging. Throughout the trek, you will make numerous river crossings over wooden and steel suspension bridges and stay in comfortable tea houses offering delicious fresh foods. This region also offers tent trekking if desired. The Annapurna Circuit Trek takes 16 days to complete and requires 6-7 hours of trekking per day.

Annapurna circuit trek begins at Beshishahar in the Marshyandi River Valley after 6 hours drive from the Kathmandu Valley. The Annapurna Circuit Trek crosses numerous micro-climate regions from tropics to the frigid cold at Thorong La pass (5416m), the widest pass of the world.This trail passes through terraced paddy fields and into subtropical forests, huge rock cliffs, several waterfalls and various villages. When you reach Pisang, we would suggest taking the upper trail to Gyaru, Ngawal to Manang. The upper trail offers spectacular views of mountains, landscapes and two villages rich with Tibetan influenced culture. In Manang Village (3540m), it is important to acclimatise in preparation for the challenging ascent to Thorong-La pass. Manang has many places to explore like the ice lake, Malarekpa Cape, Gangapurna Lake and the lovely village and monastery. If you are lucky, you may even catch a glimpse of the snow leopards which inhabit the area. You will then make your way to the holy Muktinath, with the breathtaking view of Dhaulagiri, and the upper Mustang landscape. You will make your way back to Jomsom and eventually make your way back to Pokhara.

Being my first trek, it started with lots of firsts, and Cholendra's HJA team made all the difference! Every kind, selfless, honest, loving gesture paved a profound, inner journey that was truly a mind-blowing experience. Coming from an environment of concrete jungle, the vast, powerful, raw nature was too overwhelming at times and couldn't have overcome the obstacles without Cholendra, Ramesh and their team's constant assistance and guidance. They were always making sure we're fine and extremely dependable. Having a team who would go the extra mile to keep you safe on a trek like this, indeed was the best insurance!!! I strongly recommend Cholendra and his team, and my next trip would definitely be with this A-team!

Annapoorna Track - Arumugam Malaysia

Annapoorna Track - Arumugam Malaysia

Rating:  

Novice trekkers like me are always sceptical of testing unknown terrain in Nepal. The one hell of a mountainous country will leave persons like me, in the late fifties stranded breathless with increasing altitude accompanied with poor appetite and nausea. I joined 12 others. The thought of doing the Annapoorna Track from Darapani to Mukthinarh was made possible by the local promoter, The Himalayan Joy Adventure, led by an energetic young man Cholendra. With his team of guides and porters, Cholendra was meticulous from pre-trip arrangement to post trip departure.  He displayed a commanding leadership with great confidence, systematic in every aspect, absolutely no hiccups, always relaying correct information and thus enabling our selves to assess and prepare for the terrain. He kind of created the spirit of adventure and endurance of the journey - a joy that enveloped our body and souls.  In terms of pricing, I'm not sure, but all I can say is that I obtained the satisfaction that no more money can buy. I wish Cholendra and his team all the best.

A group of 13 were planning to do the Annapurna circuit and the entire duration of stay was so well organised.  I was here with my family and had the most exciting wonderful time! The sceneries and trek leading up to Thorong Pass was ever so scenic - the best views i have seen! Food and accommodation were good too.  Cholendra and his team (Ramesh and the porters) were always so kind, thoughtful and ever helpful. He ensured that every member of the team was taken care of throughout the duration including those who had to be airlifted for medical reasons. Some members of the team were struggling with their bags and the porters would make several to and fro trips to help them carry things and the team were ever so grateful. Throughout the trek he and his team were ever so motivating, shared their knowledge about the culture and the montains.  I had a time of my life and would certainly recommend Cholendra and his team. And i am looking forward to trekking up Mt Mera next year!

Fantastic Annapurna Panorama Trek!

Fantastic Annapurna Panorama Trek!

Rating:  

My husband and I wanted to do a trekking around the Annapurna and Cholendra and his team arranged a perfect trek for 5 days to the Annapurna Panorama/Poon Hill. It was a beautiful trek through woodlands and the high peaks of Annapurna with gorgeous views. I myself got sick on the trekking unfortunately but Cholendra and Raj were really caring and helped me to get through the trekking. They had different options for the last days in difficulty and time durance which really helped me finish the trekking in a good and positive way. If we come back to Nepal we will definitely book a trip with this organisation (these guys) again!

Trip Note

ECO-FRIENDLY

Every day the world is facing a big issue of environmental pollution and in Nepal as well. Our field staffs are quite conscious about environmental pollution at any time and we encourage to all. We would suggest to our guest to use boiled water or water purification pills than buying a bottle of water, it helps to avoid plastic bottles which can take a long time to disappear. During the trek, if possible you can order same items food in a group which minimises the fuel used and to make the campfire is almost forbidden. We would encourage being a responsible traveller so, just leaving a footprint on the trail and bring out all non-biodegradables which you had.
