Hiking Nepal’s Annapurna Circuit is one of the most stunningly beautiful, life-changing experiences you can have on your travels, and we’re pretty sure that, like us, you’ll be absolutely captivated by the area from the very first day.
Winding through some of the world’s tallest mountains and diverse climatic zones (from tropical to freezing alpine peaks), intensive days spent on your feet, and enjoying the beautiful hospitality of the Nepalese people and their quaint mountain villages: the 16 days you’ll spend on the Annapurna Circuit trail are some of the most inspiring and challenging you’ll ever encounter, and the arrival back to Pokhara will feel so rewarding.
But while it’s super tempting to just book a flight, lace up your hiking boots, and head off into the vast wild, take it from us, wanderers: this is not a simple walk in the park, pun intended! (If you’re looking for a shorter Nepal trek, why not try the Ghorepani Poon Hill trek!).
In fact, from preparing for altitude sickness to organising your permits and accommodation, there’s a huge amount of knowledge and planning you need to factor into your pre-trip preparation before you even take your first few steps.
