Annapurna Circuit Trek

Ken and I decided to do a trek in the Himalayas and we were so lucky to be introduced to Dhruba in Kathmandu. We trekked to the highest pass, walked through jungles, and villages, hiked up to the tree line through a barren, beautiful, lunar, desert landscape, and acclimatized before hiking up to the very highest pass. I loved every minute of it. The scenery is absolutely beautiful. The food was amazing and we loved spending time with the Nepalese. I would highly recommend Dhruba as your guide. He is knowledgeable and a true professional. He will look after you and will ensure that you are okay throughout the trip. I learned a lot about Nepalese through Dhruba which was fun! He calls me big sister “Didi.” Although I have not seen Dhruba since 2008, we are in regular contact and he has become a lifelong friend of ours. We miss him dearly and I will definitely be back to have another trip with him again. Thurka Shivapalyan From the United Kingdom

I did the Annapurna circuit and had a wonderful experience. The circuit is a bit touristic, but still, the nature is phenomenal and in the off-season, it's really not crowded, in May the weather is still great. I did the tour with a great company a1 trek with Mr. Ajeeb which Id like to write about here. Everyone I met was really friendly and welcoming and I always had a good feeling traveling with them. I did the Annapurna circuit with Ajeeb and had an excellent experience, so from my point, I can just give a strong recommendation.

Annapurna Circuit Trek

Mr. Dhruba Bhatta guided us through the Annapurna circuit trek in April 2011. I contacted Dhruba Bhatta a couple of months earlier and through the net, we defined the timetable of our trekking. During this time Dhruba was available online for us and gently settled all the issues raised us. We arrived from Israel through transit in Mumbai to Katmandu airport where he met us with warm hospitality. After one night's stay in a boutique hotel in Thamel, he took us by bus to the starting point Besisahar. From this point, he took us safely through a ten-day walk (approximately – 130 km) through Manang 3500 meters, Throng la – 5500 ending in the beautiful villages Muktinath, Jomsom, and Pokhara. During these days he carefully took care of all our needs, starting from adjusting the trekking to our fitness, staying and dining in beautiful guest houses, directing the porters that took care of our belongings in the mountains, keeping us safe in the increasing, sometimes extreme altitude environment which can become every moment dangerous to a human being. After the trekking, in the evening Dhruba Bhatta and his team and I together had a nice time and long talks where he introduced us to the Nepali tradition, lifestyle, etc. During these talks, we learned that Dhruba runs trekking in other areas of Nepal, Everest base camp, ABC, Poon Hill, etc. The Annapurna trekking under his guidance became a lovely and most importantly safe experience and I would recommend warmly Dhruba Bhatta to everyone who wishes to go through guided trekking in the beautiful mountains of Nepal.

Frequently Asked Questions

It entirely depends upon the itinerary chosen and provided by Adventure 1 Company. At present situation where the motorable road has reached both sides of the Annapurna Circuit route. Normally the general standard Itinerary is for 13 to 14 days, can be shorter or longer. Depending upon the start of the trek either from Dharapani or further down from Syange or Jagat villages. As well depends on where the trekking ends, from Ulleri village or at Bhirethati to reach Pokhara, where the trek completes. One can make the trek shorter by flying from Jomsom town airport to Pokhara after crossing high Thorang-La pass 5,416 m.

About minimum 4 hours to maximum 6-7 hours walks covering 12-15 k.m. and short of 6 to 8 k.m. The longest hours of walks are crossing high Thorang-La pass with long descent holy Muktinath pilgrimage site and village. The shortest is a walk from Pisang village to main Manang village, Yak Kharka, and High Camp of Thorang-La.

It is not so difficult, as one imagines as any other normal moderate-grade walks around the Himalayas. The only tough is gaining altitude from Pisang village onwards from above 3,000 m onwards. But taking time and enjoying the views and having short refreshing stops makes the trek much easier.

The only hard day of walking is going over Thorang-La Pass. By then all trekkers will be well acclimatized with the altitude to encounter the difficult part of the adventure. Slow and steady with few stops in between the walks makes the trek more enjoyable.

One of the best lodge accommodations and an excellent food menu that one can expect on this trek. As Annapurna Circuit is listed in the world's top adventure destinations, one of the most popular and favorite among trekkers.

Due to the main flow of trekkers, most lodges around the villages have nice cozy lodge accommodation serving a comprehensive food menu. From continental, Chinese, Korean, Japanese, Indian, and Nepalese to Tibetan, Mexican and Italian meals are served as per the menu. All lodges provide hot showers with large lively warm dining rooms. 

Depending upon the seriousness and nature of sickness, for minor suffering and illness, one can rest for a few days. Then can carry on trekking, but must have someone close to accompany the victim. For major illnesses and severe wounds, the patient needs immediate evacuation by the fastest means of transportation. Like using helicopter services, where all trekkers should be fully insured and claimed through concerned insurance companies.

The company Adventure a1trek will provide an expert guide with Government license Holder and very helpful porters to take care of your needs and requirement. The guide can answer all your queries as well providing information about the area of trekking, local culture, and much more.
