Travel to Besi Sahar before heading out on a short trek to Jagat. Take in the beautiful hot springs along the way.
Begin 11 days of challenging trekking in one of the highest mountain ranges on Earth. Experience stunning Alpine pastures, forests of rhododendron, temples, rural villages and local people, waterfalls, glaciers, and some of the most spectacular mountain scenery known to man.
For almost 2 weeks, we immerse ourselves into the spectacular mountain wilderness of the Annapurna Range. At 8,091m (26,545ft) Annapurna 1 is one of the highest mountains in the world. Its surrounding sister mountains are equally imposing, creating magnificent panoramas from any view point. Throughout the trek we come across isolated mountain communities, each observing different ancestral customs and traditions, resulting in not only a visually superb expedition but also a culturally rich one. Amid the rugged mountain scenery, we meet warm and welcoming locals herding yaks and goats on grassy pastures, and visit their monasteries and temples. Along the way, we see waterfalls of melted snow, cross icy rivers, broad plains, and high mountain passes and reward ourselves with a soak in natural hot springs (you've earned this!). The trekking is challenging, averaging 6-7 hrs a day, often at high altitudes. The highest point we reach, occurring on Day 9, is the 5,416m (17,769ft) Thorung Pass.
Given the dangers of altitude sickness, it is imperative that we take at least 3 days to ascend to this height. A couple of days are also allowed for rest and acclimatisation.

A wonderful experience! From Kathmandu, to the Annapurna trek through the breath-taking Himalayas to Pokhara, and back to Kathmandu, the experience was rich with varied scenery and the culture and daily life of the Nepalese people.Overall Rating
On this trip, the scenery changes as much as the elevation. I felt like I was trekking through so many different landscapes: dry and dusty, cold and snowy, warm and tropical. And yet, everywhere around us were magnificent mountains.Overall Rating
I was blown away by the beauty of Nepal every day of the trek. I loved that every day was different landscapes; from desert to snowy mountain to farmland to jungle! This was a long trek, so the physical demands were more than I expected, but the views made me want to work hard to see a great pay off!Overall Rating

Excellent - beautiful circuit - amazing guides and porters - Ramesh and Soam really made the trip!Overall Rating
Trekking Annapurna was amazing. It was a lot of work but well worth it since we were able to see remote towns accessible only by foot (or donkey) and diverse landscape. It felt like a real adventure and a personal challenge to get through the steep ups and downs of Nepal. The country is beautiful and the people are incredible.Overall Rating

Amazing, largely due to the efforts of our excellent guide Ramesh. We got to visit everything we wanted and to top it all he taught us yoga every evening. I couldn't recommend a guide more highly.
