Annapurna Circuit Trekking  |  17 Days

A classic, world renowned trek around the Annapurna range is a fantastic odyssey. It passes through a great diversity of landscape and encountering various ethnicities along the route. From the trails, you can see many significant peaks like Annapurna I (8091m), the world 10th highest mountain and first peak over 8000m to ever have been climbed by a French team in 1950 AD, Dhaulagiri (8167m), worlds 7th highest, Manaslu (8163m, worlds 8th highest, sacred Machhapuchhre, 6993m, a sacred mountain of climbing limits.

The Annapurna Circuit trek follows along two major River Valleys. The Marshyangdi River valley was a part of an ancient trade route linking culture long before trekkers ever arrived in this area. The Kali Gandaki is considered the deepest gorge in the world and is also part of an ancient trade route to Tibet. Both valleys have distinct features and culture that makes the trekking there an unbelievable trekking of natural and cultural diversity.

Our treks in the Annapurna circuit starts with a scenic drive to Chamje from Kathmandu. We begin the trek on a counter clockwise journey of an Annapurna Circuit. The culture will change as we make our way up from around 1300m at the starting point to the highest elevation landscape of Manang. It follows many new and pristine trails away from road construction in the area. There is much to explore along the way and around the large village of Manang we can find the sacred monasteries and side- trips to the Milarepa Cave and ice Lakes and we will even take you to one of the highest Lakes in the world- Tilicho Lake, if your time and energy allows it.

We continue up to the high point of the trip to Thorung La (5416m) and savor the moment of this challenging but rewarding accomplishment!

Then descend to the western valley of the Annapurna Circuit to the holy temple of Muktinath, a famous pilgrimage since ancient times. A tour of the site and surrounding villages continues our journey down to Jomsom and south down the River valley. This region is well known for its apple and apricots that brought it the nickname of the Apple Pie Circuit.

Following new trails of the road, we make our way down to a hot spring where we can enjoy a relaxing moment admiring the surrounding beauty. At this point, we have the option to visit viewpoints of Khopra, Poon Hill and Mohare with a last looks at the astonishing Himalayan range before driving to the Pokhara to celebrate the treks conclusion.

    Amazing experience. Kisan was super helpful and helped set up everything from airport rides to hotels and jeeps to the Annapurna circuit. He was always very responsive, which really helped us when we needed alternate arrangements to get back from the circuit when we had flight cancellations in Jomsom due to bad weather. Highly recommend Good vibe adventures for good services in Nepal.

    I just finished the Annapurna Circuit trek, which was organised by the exceptionally professional Kisan from Good Vibe Adventure. It was the most spectacular and stress free experience from start to finish. Kisan answered all my questions, got me from the airport and introduced me to my guid Dilip. To say that Dilip was kind, helpful and honest is an understatement. He not only showed me the trails he taught me so much about the culture and language of the mountains. He always checked to make sure I was ठिक छ (ok:), and that I felt welcome and safe at each place we stayed. With 30+ years experience you won't find safer hands. If your thinking of going trekking do it, it will change your perspective in the best way possible. I feel incredibly grateful for everything and can't recommend Good Vibes and Dilip high enough. Thank you guys!!!

    This is the very first time I did a trekking trip and I was so worried at first but Good Vibe has helped to make it a memorable trip. Our tour guide - Krishna was really dedicated and patient throughout the trip. He and the porter always took turn to wait for me (as my walking speed was super slow), they made sure never leave me behind alone. They even made sure we always had fruit as a dessert after every meal. From accommodation, catering to trip experience during the trekking, all were excellent to me, brought by Good Vibe, Kisan (the owner), Krishna (the tour guide) and the porter also. Thanks a lot for making my first trekking a great experience. I did the Khopra Danda trail with my friend, this trail is great (yet still a bit challenging for first trekker like me but it was fine eventually), the view at Khopra Danda in the afternoon when we got there was super amazing.

    Our trip hiking in Nepal could not have been any better! Keshab and Arjun were so good to us. We arrived in KTM and Keshab was there to greet us and the rest of the trip was taken care of. We stayed in Kathmandu the first night and Keshab showed us around and got us set up with gear. Soon after we were on the Annapurna range for 16 days. Keshab made sure that we stayed on track for reaching the pass and he showed us such a good time. I felt safe hiking with Keshab. Not only was the trip a great success and professionally handled, but it was true to the name, good vibes all around!!!

    I hiked the Annapurna Circuit with Good Vibe Adventures, and can't say enough good things about our guide Keshab or about the trek. Keshab was friendly and funny, his english was great, and he was very knowledgable about the land and the people we came across. The hike was beautiful. It was the perfect mix of challenging terrain, beautiful scenery, cozy guest houses and good food. I am happy to recommend Keshab and Good Vibe Adventure.

    With a friend of mine, we did the annapurna around Trek with Keshab. He is a very good guide, he knows a lot about the mountain, his country, his culture, and he shares all this with pleasure. The trek was an incredible adventure, but the meeting with Keshab was also an incredible meeting! I recommend you Keshab without hesitating ! Marion from switzerland

    Some friends who I met while traveling in Southeast Asia recommended Keshab and I'm glad they did; moreover I would highly recommend him for you! I did the Annapurna Circuit with 3 other friends in the middle of December. The weather was on and off the entire trek, but perfectly beautiful when it mattered most. He picked us up from the airport, organized our passes, accommodation, ticketing, food, winter clothing, pretty much everything else. He helped us with everything along the way and it could not have went any better. He knew quite a few people in every town, thus we always got the best rooms with incredible views and the best deal. His english is great, and if I remember correctly he also speaks a few other languages.  If that isn't enough reasoning to use this company and Keshab, during our trek we even had a few people join our group at multiple points along the way to ask him questions or to be in his presence even when they had their own guides! He was able to answer every question in an honest fashion. He is the best. Definitely would recommend him. If I ever get the chance to go back I will without a doubt meet up with him again. What a trip.

    Me and my friend did a 14 day trek around the Annapurna circuit. We were worried about the weather (rain-season). That's why we decided to take a guide with us. Starting end end-point was Kathmandu. Included was transfer, permissions, guide. He told us everything about the nature. About Nepal. And about the culture. He picked us the best rooms in the guest houses with amazing views. He cared for extra blankets. He cared for everything that we have an amazing time. During the 14 days he became more then a good guide. He became a friend. We met him a few times after the trek in Kathmandu and met his friends, too. We had an amazing time. Next time I will go with him to see snow leopards!! Highly recommended
