Annapurna Circuit Trek

14 Days

Annapurna Circuit Trek covers massif areas of Northern Nepal as well as many isolated hamlets, mountain villages, rhododendron forest and zigzag roads. Annapurna circuit is also popular for its culture and tradition, which is a little bit different than Khumbu Sherpa’s culture. It is one of the bestselling trekking routes in Nepal.  It features Mount Annapurna II, IV, Machhapuchhre, Dhaulagiri mountain, Lamjung Himal, Pisang Peak, and the world’s largest gorge – Kaligandaki gorge. Annapurna Circuit Trek also takes you to Manang – Muktinath Trek. It covers minimum 800m to maximum 5416m altitude. The diversity of the Annapurna Region can be seen and felt throughout the trek. Annapurna Circuit Trek does not offer roads; that is why trekkers have to take the alley to trek for maximum time.

14 Days itinerary is a short itinerary of Annapurna circuit trek that encircles massif Annapurna range. It is only for those adventure seekers who have limited time and want to encircle Annapurna Range.
