FAQs about 18 Days Annapurna Circuit Trek

Expand/Close
How difficult is Annapurna Circuit Trek?

Although long, Annapurna Circuit Trek is doable if you are physically and mentally fit. Still, you should involve in some planning and training before coming for the trek. If you have previous trekking experience, it’s a bonus.

How safe is Annapurna Circuit Trek?

Annapurna Circuit Trek is a safe trek. But, get to know about the weather, avoid walking in the dark and stay on the main track. Don’t leave your guide and companions behind. Also, walk slowly and be aware of the symptoms of altitude sickness. If altitude sickness becomes intense, then do not force yourself and get ready to return.

What is the cost of Annapurna Circuit Trek?

Our 18 days Annapurna Circuit Trek costs about USD$1200. The trek, however, can cost low or high depending on various factors. The number of trekkers, porters, trek routes, trek season, accommodating hotels, and the number of trekking days are some major factors that determine the cost of the trek.

How many hours do I need to walk per day?

Usually, you walk for about 5-7 hours per day. But some days, you will walk less or more than that.

Do I need guides and porters for Annapurna Circuit Trek?

You spend so many days far from conveniences. Having a guide helps you smoothen your trek. You don’t have to worry about accommodation and meals. We help you pre-plan your entire trip and probably, you will not experience any trouble. Likewise, carrying a load on your back for 5-7 hours a day is quite difficult. Porters here are strong and walk at a higher pace than trekkers. So, having a porter/porters helps you enjoy the trip freely.

Should I buy travel insurance for Annapurna Circuit Trek?

Yes. Tour operators do not include your travel insurance in the package. So, make sure you buy a travel insurance that covers you over 3,000 meters altitude.

Do I need any permit?

Yes, you need two different permits. TIMS card and Annapurna Conservation Area Entry Permit( ANCAP). As there will be various checkpoints, make sure you grab them in Kathmandu and keep them with you.

How difficult is Thorong La Pass?

Passing Thorong La Pass is a tough part of the trek. You begin ascending to Thorong La Pass early in the dark morning. The total walk of the day exceeds 8 hours. However, the trail on the pass is well-marked and there will be lots of trekkers during high seasons. But, be aware of the weather condition before you ascend to Thorong La Pass.

How much weight do porters carry?

Porters usually carry 10-12 kg of weight. As porters carry your load, you can carry a small backpack with essentials.

How to fight off Altitude sickness?

Anyone who has not lived at high altitudes can suffer from Altitude Motion Sickness. You have to be extra careful to prevent altitude sickness. Hydrate your body, take a slow and steady walk and take rest at times. If you find any symptom of altitude sickness, be careful to not take it to another level.

What if I get sick or injured during the trek?

There are small medicals in larger villages of the circuit. Also, there are hospitals in Manang and Jomsom. During the peak season, some temporary clinics at high-altitudes provide medical services. If you feel sick or injured during the trek, your guide will work out and find the best option.

What are my accommodations and meals like?

Annapurna Circuit Trek is a popular classic trek. So, the villages throughout Annapurna Circuit route have teahouses to accommodate trekkers. Teahouses in most villages of the trek are basic ones with basic food and accommodation facilities. Rooms have a bed, blanket, and some other essentials. Bathrooms usually are fine but not to optimal quality. The meals are usually Dal Bhat with vegetable curry. Although many tea houses offer western foods as well, nothing beats heavy meals of Dal Bhat.

How much money should I carry during Annapurna Trek?

While you are traveling through a tour operator, they cover the cost of your daily meals and accommodations. But, you need to pay while charging batteries, for Wifi, buying water bottles, and so forth. You may want to buy souvenirs of the trek and also tip the guides and porters. So, carry Nepalese Rupees equivalent to a few hundred dollars.

Are there ATMs in the circuit?

There are ATMs in Besisahar. Jomsom also has an ATM but trekkers have complained that it does not work. If you have foreign currency, you can exchange them. But the exchange rate can be as high as 10 % or more.

Is WiFi available during the trek?

Most tea houses have WiFi. But, they usually charge you on an hourly basis. The price of WiFi rises as you march towards upper and more remote areas.

Okay, I am interested. What is the best season for Annapurna Circuit Trek?

Time from Mid-March to Mid-April and October to November are the best time to go for Annapurna Circuit Trek. Other than that, the climate is too hot, or too cold or rain disturbs trekkers.

  1. Annapurna Circuit Trek
    Arun, Bishnu, Raj and Prince made our trek amazing. They went above and beyond to make sure we were safe, happy and had the most amazing time. Arun taught us so much about the Nepali culture and answered all our questions honestly and thoroughly. He made sure we had everything we needed each day and helped with dietary restrictions and allergies. Bishnu is a trekking machine, he also recognized who needed help on what day and payed very close attention to our safety (more than once he had to catch me as I fell). On the night before we crossed Thorongla Pass he didn’t sleep because he hiked for 4 hours, in the dark to help one of our fellow travelers who suffered from altitude sickness back down the mountain so he could be airlifted back to Kathmandu. An unfortunate event that had nothing to do with the aptitude of our guides but was handled very safely and quickly. Raj and Prince, our porters, had smiles on their faces all the time, high fived us at the end of each day and carried an amount of weight that amazed me. Today is our last full day of the trek, we are in Pokhara at the moment and I feel so grateful for this amazing experience and at the same time I am so very sad to see it end. I can’t put into words how much I am going to miss my Nepali family and how much I recommend this trek with these beautiful people.

    We just completed the 15-day Annapurna Circuit trek with Nepal Eco Adventure and were blown away by the whole experience. The company is super organized and Chhatra, the Business Manager, is professional and kind. He answered all of our questions before the trek, making us feel confident and safe. Nepal Eco Adventure gave us the gear we needed and took care of all of our permits, lodging, food, and transportation. Our guide, Raj, was absolutely sensational. He went above and beyond what we expected of a guide. Not only was his English excellent and his knowledge of the region extensive, but he made sure we were safe and happy in big and small ways. He checked our oxygen daily, provided us with medication and first aid when we needed it, gave us fresh fruit after every dinner, made sure we had tea whenever we were cold, sang with us on the trail, and laughed at all of our jokes. He is funny, kind, thoughtful, trustworthy, motivating, and hardworking - the best guide we’ve ever met. Additionally, we couldn’t have done this trek without our strong and fearless porter, Hari Chandra. He always had a smile on his face and was beyond helpful - without him our backs would have been broken! We loved getting to know both Raj and Hari Chandra and together it felt like one big family! We highly recommend Nepal Eco Adventure to anyone wanting a safe, meaningful, fun, and transformative experience!We just completed the 15-day Annapurna Circuit trek with Nepal Eco Adventure and were blown away by the whole experience.

  3. Annapurna Circuit Trek
    I completed the Annapurna Circuit Trek with two others in March/April 2018. Without any undue hyperbole, it was probably the best thing I’ve ever done in my life so far. The trek was fantastic, the views without peer, and the guiding was absolutely brilliant. We were lead by Kumar, whose humour and experience ensured that morale was always sky high. He was assisted by Bishnu and Subash (porters), who were also fantastic. There was never a question they couldn’t answer, and the fruit platters they provided each evening were the envy of all other trekking groups we encountered en route. Altitude was never an issue - we had regular rest stops, acclimatisation days and daily oxymeter checks to ensure that our blood oxygen levels were fine (this was very reassuring). I would not hesitate to book again and I am very grateful to Kumar, Bishnu and Subash for making our trip as good as it absolutely could be.
  4. Annapurna Circuit Trek
    I did the Annapurna circuit trek with Nepal Eco Adventure, with Chhatra as my guide. He was recommended to me by a friend. Cchatra really made the trip so wonderful, he had all the details down to a tee, he was very accommodating and knowledgeable, as well as being a true professional he is also so genuine and great fun! I also felt his insight into the country was really interesting. The two week trek was some experience, the scenery was stunning, the people we met along the way and accommodation we stayed in, were really lovely. We also had a great porter. I felt that by choosing Nepal Eco Adventure, that our experience could not have been bettered in any way. The trip was one of the best I've ever been on anywhere in the world, and the expense (which was very reasonable) was so worth every rupee!! Would definitely recommend them and would love to do a trip with them in the future again :)
  5. Annapurna Circuit Trek
    I did the Annapurna Circuit with Nepal Eco Adventure and cannot recommend Chhatra and his team highly enough. Chhatra knows what Western travellers want and need. He is intelligent, informative, wise, careful and a mine of information about Nepal, its history and customs. He also has a fabulous team of porters and guides to back him up, who made the trip for us as much as the incredible scenery, walking and our fellow trekkers. Not only are you safe in Chhatra's extremely experienced hands but you will have a truly incredible time. I have been to the Himalayas twice, I long to go back - and when I do it will be with Nepal Eco Adventure.
  6. Annapurna Circuit Trek
    Our experience with Nepal Eco Adventure was fantastic! As we were coming to Nepal right at the end of dry season (early June), we were not sure which trekk would be the best option at that time. Mr Chhatra helped us and guided in planning the trip since the early beginning. During the trekk our guide Arun and our porter Yadab were really helpful and friendly. Arun told us many interesting facts about the region and lokal nature that we would never guess. He also consulted with us and adviced on any possible modification from the standard itinerary (i.e. because of weather condition, our tiredness etc.). Traveling with him felt like traveling with a good friend with much more experience and broader knowledge about the himalayas. It is also important to note that his english was really good and we had no problems in communication (which is not a guarantee in Nepal). He also provided us with iodine tablets when we ran out of ours. Yadab is an incredible guy with a huge sense of humor (always smiling). He was a great addition to our trekk and with his knowledge and superhuman strength (!) I would definietly recommend him for both a guide and/or a porter. In the final days of our trekk mr Chhatra arranged for us a return flight ticket from Pokhara to Kathmandu so we could skip the exhausting 8 hours bus trip (he booked and paid for the tickets in advance). All together, I strongly recommend the Nepal Eco Adventure office and well as the guide and porter that were with us throughout the journey!!
  7. Annapurna Circuit Trek
    Chhatra Karki is a completely trustworthy and extremely knowledgeable guide with an infectiously cheerful nature. Chhatra has minimal overheads and his small and professional company provided excellent value for money, in comparison to the larger trekking organizations. I have just completed the Annapurna Circuit with friends; Phil and Anita Kane, Andy Jackson, Matt Hannaway, a swell as my two teenage sons Sam and Harry. I am sure I speak for all in praising Chhatra’s English which allowed him to answer our many questions, becoming the link to the Nepalese people and their culture. The trek was arduous and reached a height of 5416 meters as we crossed the Thorung La Pass, a real test as we were a group of mixed ability, fitness, experience and age. Chhatra was always aware of the risks and put our wellbeing first at all times. The 17 day trek was a huge success for us all. When we returned to Kathmandu we socialized with him and his family and he also showed his versatility by acting purely as a guide to the city, visiting all the main tourist attractions. I do hope you decide to use him as we did and benefit from his dedication, knowledge and best of all his sense of humor.
  8. Annapurna Circuit Trek
    Andy Jackson I did the Annapurna Circuit with Chhatra and a small group in November 2009 in 17 days. I had not met Chhatra before but he came recommended through a guide I had used previously. The whole group had a fantastic time thanks to his efforts. He is utterly trustworthy, knowledgeable, competent and adjusts to provide whatever the group needs. I felt that at all times, he was there to make our trip a success - if we wanted to have a slow day or stay somewhere different, nothing was too much trouble and he would arrange it. His English is fluent and he takes trouble to explain everything and answer any questions, demonstrating his excellent knowledge of culture, wildlife, mountaineering and cuisine! He provided a seamless link between the group and the Nepali culture. I was impressed in the way that he would be with the group whenever we needed but allow us to feel that we were not always 'guided' - his experience in anticipating what we needed made the difference. He is good fun to trek with. I'm sure that there are other great guides in the region but I felt that Chhatra brought us closer to Nepali culture and ensured our safety in a way I could not imagine being improved on. I also felt that 100% of his trekking fees were worth it and, more importantly, would be invested in-country by someone who had the nations interest at heart. I will definately be going back and will use Chhatra again!
  9. Annapurna Circuit Trek
    In November 2009 we spent an unforgettable time trekking the Annapurna Circuit with Chhatra as our guide. Chhatra has many qualities to recommend him. In the first place, his English is excellent. Many of the guides we encountered leading trekkers in the region were not nearly as fluent, with the consequence that their groups didn’t benefit as much from the guide’s knowledge as they could have. Chhatra’s attitude to safety was also first rate. He advised us on the most reliable food to eat, where and how to get safe water along the way and recommended we attend an altitude lecture before crossing the Thorung La high pass which was well worth while. His knowledge of the route, places to stay, flora and fauna were all exemplary. Along the way we talked and learned about Nepali history, politics, geography, geology – just about anything, really! Chhatra was interested in learning about where we came from too. He also had a particular aptitude for ‘managing’ the group. He was very aware of our various moods, who was tired, who wanted to walk faster or slower, who felt unwell, and taking everything into account set a timetable that was appropriate in catering for the needs of all seven of us, without us really having to say anything. That said, he was not at all dogmatic and gave us a lot of space to decide just what we wanted to get out of the trip. Chhatra was thoroughly professional but also has a great sense of humour and we had a lot of laughs along the way. A guide is such an integral part of your trip to Nepal – choose wisely!!!
  10. Annapurna Circuit Trek
    Having just returned to the UK from 3 weeks trekking in the Annapurna Region I wanted to tell you a little about my experiences there.The most important detail if you are thinking of going trekking is a good guide good Agency and I can highly recommend our lead guide Chhatra Karki His Trekking Agency Nepal Eco Adventure. He organizes the trip and accommodation while trekking and is full of helpful information to make your experience in Nepal second to none. I was the novice in a large group all attempting the Annapurna circuit crossing Throung La pass. From the moment we met, Chhatra was amazing. He met us at the airport and arranged hotels in Kathmandu and all the transportation. The lodges along the trek were pri-booked by him so we never had to walk to the next village for accommodation. Each night, Chhatra gave a description of the following days trek with things to look out for, advice on weather and general information relevant to each days walking. He spent time telling us about Nepal in respect to politics, development and culture and this was never dull or ill received. It proved to be very interesting and gave me far greater insight into life in Nepal. I noted that Chhatra spent time with each of my fellow trekkers, gauging ability and simply getting to know them. He was interested in who we were too. He was funny with a great sense of humor and was very easy to talk to. We had an assistant guide, Rajesh who helped with cooking, advice and had the most beautiful singing voice. Often he would sing beautiful Nepalese songs while he worked. He was able to assist one of our group who, due to altitude sickness had to go back down. She had a great time with him and was escorted to meet us on the other side of the pass. She always felt safe. Chhatra had a group of young strong men who were our porters. It was reassuring to find them equipped for changing weather and their health and well being as important as ours. They were supplied with Diamox if they needed it and their O2 saturation levels were monitored daily as were ours. They were a great group of men who were very happy to see us succeed every day. By the end of the trek it felt like old friends were waiting for us at the lodges each day :) One aspect that was really important to me was the fact that there was no large company skimming off money that could have gone to those doing the work. All the money I paid went directly to the porters which benefited them greatly. Chhatra was very fair and encouraged the porters to continue with their learning so that they can have the opportunity to become guides themselves. This is seen as a good career in Nepal. I had the most amazing experience of my life and apart from the incredible natural beauty of Nepal with its mountains and rivers and wonderful people, a lot of it was due to Chhatra and his porters. This was a very well organized trip with bonuses such as 3 days in Chitwan National Park. I highly recommend Nepal Eco Adventure and team of Chhata and would encourage those wishing to undertake trekking in Nepal to contact him. He has been trekking since he was 13 and has full experience in ALL the treks in Nepal including short, long and Everest treks.I really believe that you cant find better than Chhatra :) I will definitely trek with Chhatra again. Ps…There were 15 in our group and we are not young! Our ages ranged from 38 to 70 and we all had a great time. Do not be put off by age. Chhatra wasn’t…and he was right.
  11. Annapurna Circuit Trek
    I just got back from a magical trek around a portion of the Annapurna Circuit. We were lucky to get a wonderful guide, Chhatra Karki who kept us motivated, informed and safe. (plus we laughed a lot!) The experience left me craving more. The scenery is magnificent and the people are charming. I definitely encourage anyone in reasonably good physical condition to go (I went with my 79 year old dad) Chhatra’s english is excellent. I recommend him highly.
  12. Annapurna Circuit Trek
    This trek was amazing! Nepal Eco Adventure more than came through on their promises and at all times I felt I was in professional, well organized and responsible hands.   From initial contact over email Chhatra answered all my many emails promptly and in depth, and his hospitality, cheeriness and friendliness once arriving in Kathmandu was excellent and his generosity extended once I finished my trek.  My guide Shiva was incredible, he was very flexible with our itinerary and left it up to me depending on how I felt.  He was caring, patient and had a huge wealth of knowledge about the area but most importantly was great company.   Nepal Eco-Adventure made my first time in Nepal and first time traveling by myself an extremely positive experience and I can't wait to come back.
  13. Annapurna Circuit Trek
    We hired a guide for the Annapurna Circuit trek through Nepal Eco Adventures and we couldn't have been happier. We settled on 18 days to do the whole circuit, from Besisahar to the Thorong La Pass and then to Nayapul where we took a quick bus to Pokhara. Our guide, Kumar, was a wealth of information and, perhaps more importantly, a great source of entertainment, all the way up, over and down. Taught us some Nepali, played role of translator and deal-maker, coordinated wood fires in the dining room, played us and beat us in cards, the whole bit. The trek itself was incredible; we saw all four seasons- sun and rain, snow and ice, spectacular landscapes and beautiful mountain families that housed and fed us in their guesthouses. Cheers to Chhatra, Kumar and everyone at Nepal Eco Adv. This was an adventure that won't be forgotten. Ma timalai maya garchu!
  14. Annapurna Circuit Trek
    My sister and I completed the Annapurna Circuit using Nepal Eco Adventure after reading all the reviews on Chhatra and his company. Like so many others, I found Chhatra extremely responsive, friendly and knowledgeable. He patiently answered all questions both via email before arrival and in his office before and after the trek. He also provided a great set of walking sticks as my sister hadn't brought her own. On the trail, our guide was Ramesh and I can't say enough great things about him. He's worked as a guide for 15 years and his experience shows. His knowledge, patience and kind demeanour were all so much appreciated. I always felt very safe as a female traveller and he was an excellent sport when asked for "protection" from the odd goat, buffalo or spider! He was also happy to talk as we trekked but provided plenty of space for us to do our own thing. One thing of particular value was that we were permitted to customise our trip once on the trail. Upon getting to Jomson after all the days of peaceful trekking, it became clear that walking on the hot, dusty road was not going to be much fun. I proposed hopping the bus to Tatopani and instead spending those days trekking in the Annapurna Sanctuary - and that was what Ramesh ensured we did. That level of flexibility just made the trip and ensured we enjoyed our whole time on the trail. Lastly, our porter was well equipped for the trail, personally known to Chhatra and compensated properly which was important to us. I highly recommend Nepal Eco Adventure, Chhatra and Ramesh - all contributed to an amazing first time trekker's experience and I will be travelling with them again when returning to trek Everest in years to come. Tip: When you arrive at the airport you will be swarmed by men trying to carry your bags. Resist! Your guide and driver will take of you and you will avoid dealing with an aggressive group looking for outrageous tips.
