The Annapurna Circuit Trek around the Annapurna massif has a longstanding reputation for being probably renowned the best circular trek in the world and rightly so!.

The ever-changing flora and fauna on the circuit is breathtaking – from sub-tropical jungle to apple orchards, from farm land to semi-desert, from alpine forests to the high mountain pass over the Thorung La.

Our route takes us around the huge Annapurna Massif and offers a challenging pass crossing, the most dramatic of picturesque lowland villages, high mountain scenery as well as a fascinating mix of local people and culture.

We will trek through the jungles of the sub-tropics, through lush green paddy fields and on to alpine forests and semi-desert (similar to the landscape of Tibet), all the time offering stunning and superb views of the mighty Annapurnas.
