The Best of the Annapurna Circuit Trek Package

Also called the Annapurna Round Trek, the route passes many ethnic villages from various backgrounds. Each of them has unique ecological and social systems, resembling a vast living museum of different lifestyles and experiences. It reflects peace and harmony among the fellow tribes.

We pass through the Manaslu and Annapurna slants on this Annapurna Circuit Trek package. Once we pass the pilgrimage and trading trails, the circuit showcases a wide variety of Gurung and Magar traditional qualities.

Take a trek to the Muktinath temple to refresh your soul. It is one of the prime points of the trip, along with the mystic Kagbeni village trip. Muktinath is a sacred shrine that holds equal significance to both Hindu and Buddhist followers around the world. The surrounding field is barren, filled with dry landscapes.

From there, you will reach the gorgeous high passes that separate two valleys in Manang. The Annapurna Circuit Trek Package likewise comprises a walk to the world’s deepest gorge, cut by the river Kali Gandaki.


Welcome to Kathmandu, the capital city of Nepal. As you land in the valley, you will immediately notice the smell of ancient monuments, sculptures, artistic temples, and magnificent art. If you come by air, our staff will wait for you outside of the airport terminal. He/she stands there by your nameplate and the company name. They will greet and warmly receive you. Then they will support you with transportation to transfer you to your hotel in Kathmandu. Take a rest and gather the energy to walk on the trails. Also, if you have some personal gear to buy, you can go shopping in Thamel in the evening. You will spend the night in a hotel. Accommodation: Hotel Meal: Breakfast (Included)

After breakfast at the hotel, the guide will pick you up for a drive to Besisahar. We drive to the location by private vehicle along the route of the Prithvi Highway. During your drive, the Trishuli River will accompany you for hours. Then the pleasing beauty of hills, mountains, farmland, bridges, fruit sellers, and quiet villages will be there with you during the other hours of driving. After 6-7 hours of driving, we will reach Besisahar. From Besisahar, we head to Jagat, the beginning point of our Annapurna Circuit Trek. Jagat is a beautiful place nestled between the lofty peaks of Annapurna and Manaslu. We take around 8–9 hours to reach Jagat from Kathmandu, covering a distance of 185 km approx. When we arrive at our destination, our guide will take us to your guesthouse. Freshen up, make yourself comfortable and collect energy for trekking. Getting excited for the days to come, we will spend our nights there with a cozy, warm sleep.

Today, our journey will pass through forests, streams, and small trickling waterfalls along the Marshyangdi River. Walking for an hour with the rhythm of nature, we soon reach Chyamche at 1310 meters. Then, the trail progresses uphill for around 2 hours to reach Tal (meaning "a lake") at a height of 1700 m. Tal is the first village in the Manang district on our journey. Here, you will get a feeling of being at the center of the Himalayas. As a result, we spend some time taking in the surrounding scenery while eating delicious local fare. Then, we continue our trek to Dharapani at a height of 1960 m.
