Annapurna Circuit Trek is the most popular classic trekking route in Nepal. It is a trek within the mountain ranges of central Nepal. It is an exciting, varied, yet challenging trek in the Annapurna region of Nepal.
Annapurna Circuit trail is the second-longest hike in the Annapurna region and we cover about 206 km in four districts (Lamjung, Manang, Mustang, and Myagdi) and two zones (Gandaki and Dhaulagiri) in 20 days. Therefore, it requires additional physical stamina, courage, and prior preparation. The Annapurna Circuit Trek is the most scenic trip on which we can see the two eight-thousanders: Dhaulagiri (8,167 m) and Annapurna I (8,091 m) with some other beautiful peaks: Manaslu (8,163 m), Annapurna III (7,555 m), Gangapuram (7,455 m), Annapurna South (7,219 m), Machhapuchhre (6,997 m) and Lamjung Himal (6,931 m).
