Overview

The Annapurna Circuit Trek is one of the most well-known treks in the world. Join us on this adventure and we will take you on a journey to discover Nepal and its surreal scenery. Discover the tranquility of Tilicho Lake, the snow-covered paths of Thorong La, the sacred temple of Muktinath and the picturesque villages of the Gurungs, Manangis and Thakalis – all framed by the epic Annapurna mountain range.

This 16 day Annapurna trek begins in Kathmandu, from where you will head to Syange to begin your trek. After journeying through Chame, Pisang and Manang you will be lead to the pristine Tilicho Lake. From the lake we will venture to

Once making it through the Throng pass trek portion of our journey, you will enter the district of Mustang and visit Muktinath, a Vishnu temple which is sacred for both Hindus and Buddhists. You can then opt to drive or trek to Tatopani where you can relax in the natural hot springs. The next day you will hike through the vibrant rhododendron forests of Ghorepani and onto Poon Hill for the breathtaking sunrise over the Annapurna and neighbouring ranges.

This trip is a strenuous but extremely rewarding experience. You will have acclimatization days throughout and full support from our professional and experienced local climbers and guides to ensure that you have a safe and worry-free trip.

Amazing Annapurna Circuit Trek

2019 was the year I decided to visit Nepal and go trekking. I had 3 weeks so doing a long trek was a good option for me. My Everest Trip was recommended to me by friends and Puru was a great help when I had to choose for a trek.

The Annapurna Circuit trek has it all. The views of the mountains, the highlights of trekking destinations (like Poon Hill), the challenging walk and best of all, enough days to get the feeling of being one with the nature.

When you are first time trekker it is important to get good guidance about equipment and what to expect during trekking and Puru willingly answered all my questions.

Upon my arrival in Kathmandu everything was arranged for me nicely. I had agreed that he could group me up with other trekkers, which actually was very nice as they were great companions. Our guide Ratna was always very helpful and a great guy to be around, he knows how to interact with people and give me many information and through the hole trekking I always feel safe and happy.

The Annapurna Circuit Trek is just amazing.

Because of the good service provided for me by Puru and his staff I absolutely recommend this agency for everybody who wants a trouble free trip to Nepal.

A great guide

I visited Nepal March 2012 with my friend Thomas from France. The first person that i might in Nepal was Puru , he Organized transport to get us picked up at the airport at the arrivals hall which then transported us to the heart of Thamel in Kathmandu.

After this Puru helped us find accommodation and he told us everything that we needed to know about Nepal. Puru helped us organized everything we needed for our trip in Nepal, which included trekking Permits , reliable porters ,finding good quality trekking equipment , trekking route advice he took care of all transportation which included our flights to Lukla taxis in Kathmandu and good quality bus services to the rest of Nepal.

Puru also helped us with our shipping and cargo needs, as after our trekking we needed to post some equipment home , and puru found us the best courier service and at a very reasonable price. Puru is a very nice man , he has extensive knowledge about Nepal and trekking. In the short time i have known Puru i can say he is a very smart , honest, friendly and reliable guide and agent and a friend for life. I would Recommend his services to anyone visiting Nepal. any further questions do not hesitate to contact me at [email protected]
