Trip Overview

Deluxe Annapurna Circuit trek-17 days >>The most popular trekking in the Annapurna region of Nepal

What is the Deluxe Annapurna Circuit Trek and what makes it Deluxe?

Since we accomodate you at the best selected lodges with attached bathrooms, private transportation throughout the trip, and the highest quality meals during the entire journey of the Annapurna circuit trek, this is so-called-deluxe trek

Voted as the best long-distance (131km) trek in the world, the Deluxe Annapurna Circuit trek is one of the most popular treks within the mountain ranges of central Nepal. Besisahar (760m) is the trekking starting point before the motor road connects Manang Valley (3500m). From Kathmandu, we drive two whole days to Chame (2700m), and from there we start slowly trekking to Manang, via lower and upper Pisang, where we spend two nights for acclimatization. Leaving the manang, we trek through Thongphedi and Yak kharka. The highest point of this trek is Throng la pass (5416m), and the trek to the Lower Mustang region covers Muktinath Temple, a holy temple of Lord Vishnu, sacred to Buddhists and Hindus alike.

This trek continues following the motor road to Tatopani (hot spring in Nepali), after Muktinath, where you will enjoy a natural hot spring and attempt the final destination of the trek at Ghorepani Poonhill, before the trek finishes at Ghandruk, one of the closest hilly villages to Pokhara. The best part of this deluxe trek is that you start the trek from one place and end the trek in another place, so that you won’t follow the same trail the whole time.Because the Deluxe Annapurna Circuit trek is linked by motor roads from various points, we will use transportation to drive at the start, the middle, and the end of the trek. In order to make this trek as comfortable as possible, we have selected highly recommended deluxe lodges during the trek to make this trek deluxe.

Why should you book a Deluxe Annapurna Circuit Trek with us?

Here are some of the reasons why you should book this deluxe trek in the Annapurna region.

  1. To enjoy upgraded lodge accommodations and hygienic meals throughout the trek,
  2. To trek with a professional sherpa guide and porters
  3. to enjoy the best prepared itinerary for safety and comfort of the whole trek.
  4. To take advantage of the upgraded trekking package for safety reasons.

Is this trek for me? How difficult is this trek?

The highest altitude of this trek is 5416m at Throng La Pass. Since you have to trek through passes of over 5000m, this trek is ranked as a moderately difficult trek in Nepal. If you have a little more than two weeks with a passion for trekking in tree lined, above-tree-lined and high-altitude treks that combine a high pass, trek with temples, hot springs, local people, their culture, and high mountains, this trek is for you.

The best season for the Deluxe Annapurna Circuit trek:

If you would like to enjoy crystal clear views on your trek, October to mid-December is the best time in the autumn season. If you like to enjoy the blossoming of spring flowers, the best months are March to May. But this trek is possible throughout the year, except in January and February.

Hello Pasang,

Thanks for your follow-up. I have no complaints about your professional travel service. First of all,you are very quick in response to our e-mails even while we are in Nepal on the trip.We had a best trekking holiday with guide Mingmar and porter Sonam in Annapurna circuit trek. your trek package deluxe lodges are very nice. They have hot showers and tasty food in all the lodges. Your hotel in Kathmandu is lovely with a garden. Thanks for all your best trekking services. We had great trekking memories of Nepal. The final best experience was full body massage treatment after that long trek, which was free on your service list, and that free cultural dinner. I hope to see you again for the next trek. I wish you all the best for your next trekking clients.

 

Kind regards,

Peter
