Join us for a challenging trek in the mighty Annapurna mountain range of northern Nepal. This region is known for its diverse communities, many of whom follow centuries-old Hindu and Buddhist traditions. There are many variations to the classic Annapurna Circuit that one can travel, and we suggest the ones we think are the most rewarding, in terms of both variety and scenery. But whichever route you follow, you can expect staggeringly immense mountains that dwarf you while expanding your sense of wonder.

Our itineraries

We have two Annapurna Circuit itineraries on offer. The first is the classic Annapurna Circuit, one of Nepal's most famous routes! The second includes an extension into the seldom-visited Nar and Phu Valleys, and is ideal for those who love to visit out-of-the-way places!

To enter Nepal you must fly into Tribhuvan International Airport (KTM) in Kathmandu. The closest regional airport to the Annapurna Circuit is Pokhara Domestic Airport (PKR), and we have clients fly from here on the return to Kathmandu. Annapurna Circuit trekkers also use the small airstrip at Jomsom Airport (JMO) to fly to Pokhara at the end of the trek.
