    Classic Annapurna Circuit trek

    Classic Annapurna Circuit trek cost: $1870.00 per person - *Minimum Pax. 02

    Classic Annapurna Circuit trek offers spectacular mountain scenery. It is extremely diverse in culture and land which makes it a very famous region in Nepal. The trail follows north of the main Himalayan range to the dry Tibetan-like trans-Himalaya. It is enjoyable and requires no technical knowledge.

    This is an ‘all seasons’ trek. The Thorong La pass is becoming easier to cross every year due to new developments. The trail can be walked in both directions but counterclockwise is best due to the steepness of the track. If you like physical activity in the outdoors, the Annapurna circuit can be a colorful, challenging experience.
