    Route Overview

    We want to provide a route overview to give you a quick view of what the journey awaits you.

    Firstly, the trip begins upon your arrival at the Tribhuvan International Airport. Staff will greet you and escort you to the hotel. Then, we'll drive to Dharapani and begin our trek to Chame. From there, we'll hike to Pisang, Manang via Ghyaru, Ngawal, and Mungji. At Managa, a day is set aside for acclimatization to the higher altitude. The hike then continues to Siri Kharka and finally to Tilicho Base Camp. Later, we'll visit Tilicho Lake and then descend to Siri Kharka, Yak Kharka, and Thorong Phedi.

    From Thorong Phedi, we'll make an ascend to pass - Thorong La Pass and then descend to Muktinath. After spending a night there, we'll drive back to Tatopani to enjoy a relaxing dip in the hot spring. The hike continues to Ghorepani, followed by a morning hike to the Poon Hill viewpoint. After visiting Poonhill, we will return to Ghorepani. Then trek down to Ulleri, where we catch a jeep to Pokhara.

    We'll again take a drive back to Kathmandu and then bid farewell.

    When to Go?

    You might be wondering when to book the Classic Annapurna Circuit Trek, right? Well, let us make it easy for you!

    We recommend you choose dates in the months of March-May and September- November. These months fall under the seasons of Spring and Autumn where you can enjoy moderate temperatures. Additionally, the mountain ranges' views will be crystal clear, further enhancing your trekking experience.

    The trek is not recommended during the monsoon and winter seasons as there is a high chance of injuries due to landslides and low temperatures. Hence, we suggest you only choose the best time for the trek.

    How Hard is the Annapurna Circuit with Tilicho Lake Trek?

    Another question that may arise is how challenging the trek is. The Classic Annapurna Circuit with Tilicho Lake is an easy-to-moderate trek. The route will follow uphill and downhill terrains. Hence, having a good fitness level for this trek would be best.

    Secondly, let us talk about elevation. The highest elevation point that you'll reach on this trek is 4,949M. At this level of altitude, there is less chance of altitude sickness. If you acclimatize properly to the altitude, you won't face any problems.

    Our trekking guides are trained professionals with many years of experience in the field of trekking. They'll guide you and provide instructions regarding your walking pace and breathing pattern. Moreover, they'll also be carrying a first-aid kit with all the necessary meditation for you. Hence, you can be assured of your health and safety.

    Do you have other trips?

    We understand that choosing a trekking package is overwhelming. You can look at alternative treks if you still look for more packages in the Annapurna region.

    First of all, we would like to recommend Classic Annapurna Circuit Trek. It is for those who are up for a challenging trek.

    Next, we've got the Annapurna Circuit Trek consisting of a 14-day trek. It follows the same route, but instead of going to Ghorepani, it directly reaches Jomsom and then to Pokhara.

    Lastly, do have a look at the Annapurna Circuit Short Trek. In this short trek, we'll follow the same route and, in the end, directly drive to Muktinath to Jomson without halting at Muktinath for the night. This is perfect for those who have limited time.

    Nevertheless, we want you to know that whichever package you choose, we'll happily organize it.
