Considered as one of the world's most popular trekking areas, the Annapurna Circuit has remained open with the opening of the Manang Valley in the late 1970s. The area had been closed previously because of its proximity to the Tibetan border. The area is characterized by a combination of spectacular high mountain scenery, picturesque lowland farms and villages. The cultural richness and challenging passes in the area make the Annapurna Circuit trek much more interesting and exciting.

The itinerary can be designed as per the interest and time of trekkers.

Following the sightseeing of the culturally rich Kathmandu Valley, the journey to the world-famous Annapurna Circuit begins. Throughout the journey, one can have contacts with friendly and innocent rural people belonging to various ethnic communities. The breathtaking view of many mountain peaks such as Mt. Manaslu and the Annapurna range really make one's trip more memorable. The 5,416-meter Thorung La Pass is the highest point during the trip. The pass lies beyond the Tibetan Buddhist village of Manang.

During the trek, one has to pass through very important places like the Kali Gandaki Valley, Ghorepani, Poon Hill, among others. These areas are famous for having a spectacular dawn views of Dhaulagiri and the Annapurna ranges
