    Useful Info

    Best Season to do Annapurna Circuit Trek: 

    • Spring – March through May

    Due to the bright skies and sunny days, this is the most sought-after season for Annapurna Circuit Trekking in Nepal. At higher altitudes, mornings and nights may be chilly, although temperatures will generally be mild. The sky is largely clear and there is no rain at this moment. At this time of year, the greenery is in great abundance. The rhododendron, which is the national flower of Nepal, grows at lower elevations and is exceptionally magnificent. The pine trees at lower altitudes will be refreshing and aromatic, while other wildflowers offer a variety of colors.

    • Autumn – October through November

    In the Annapurna region, this is another really popular period to go Hiking on Annapurna Circuit. More hikers will be on the trails because of the pleasant weather and stunning scenery, and lodging is in high demand. Staff for trekking is overworked since the festival season and peak trekking season overlap. When organizing your trek, do keep this in mind. On the other side, you may enjoy Pokhara's and the route's festive ambiance.

    Meals during the 12 days Annapurna Circuit Trek: 

    The cuisine is of excellent quality during 12 Days Annapurna Circuit Trek, and we advise you to test some of the regional specialties, like dal, Bhat, boiled potatoes with chili sauce, Sherpa stew, and curry with rice. Although every lodge will also provide a broad variety of Western dishes, these are the basic cuisine for Sherpa people.

    • Breakfast options include fried and scrambled eggs, toast, pancakes, Tibetan bread, muesli, porridge, tea, coffee, and chocolate.
    • Lunch and dinner menu items include soups (tomato, garlic, vegetable, mushrooms, etc.), veg fried rice, dal, bhat, curry with rice, noodles (mix fried, veg, egg, cheese), macaroni, spring rolls (veg, egg, cheese, mixed), mo:mo (dumpling), pizza (all varieties), fried potatoes (veg or cheese), chips, buff steak (water buffalo, occasionally yak), and lasagna.

    We strongly advise staying away from dairy, alcoholic beverages, caffeinated foods, and hot chocolate. At high altitudes, it is advised to consume liquids like green tea, lemon tea, hot lemon, ginger tea, garlic soup (a necessity), and fresh vegetables.

    Accommodation during Annapurna Circuit Trek:

    You are going to stay in standard hotels in Kathmandu and Pokhara. You may stay in a variety of accommodations while on the Annapurna Circuit Trek. There are lodges, guest hotels, and teahouses that cater to tourists. For your first step, the lodges are pleasant, but as you ascend to higher altitudes, things get to change. Sizable eating space with a wood-burning stove may be found in the tea house. Most of the time, hikers eat and talk while warming themselves by the fire in the eating area. There are blankets in every guesthouse. The lodgings are fairly minimal. Typically, they are furnished with two single beds, blankets, and occasionally a table and chair. Lower lodges have tidy, western-style flush toilets, but as you travel higher, long-drop conventional toilets, which are holes in the ground become more common. The best course of action is to always have some toilet paper with you.

    Annapurna Circuit Trek Difficulties:

    The difficulty level of the Annapurna Circuit Trek is severe. The route's extreme elevation is what contributes to the Annapurna Circuit trek's challenging level of difficulty. Thorung La, the highest altitude pass in the area, is located along the hiking route and rises to a height of 5416 m. Due to the severe cold and heavy snowfall, this portion of the trip is so difficult that it is closed for most of the year. Additionally, you stay above 3000 meters at all times while on the journey. You traverse a couple of the most difficult terrains, which are frequently harsh, rocky, and steep. This increases the difficulty of the Annapurna circuit hike. The Annapurna Circuit Trek's difficulty level cannot be lowered, unlike many other treks. You may choose to bypass some of the paths, but doing so would mean that you would miss out on the greatest parts of the adventure. The only thing a trekker can do to better manage the Annapurna Circuit trek Difficulties is to get physically and emotionally ready for the trip.

    Altitude Sickness and Remedies during Annapurna Circuit Trek:

    As hikers ascend higher into the mountains, the oxygen density and air pressure become less dense than at sea level. The Annapurna Circuit Hike progressively climbs to 5,416m above sea level after starting at a lower height. Trekkers may experience typical altitude sickness symptoms, such as nausea, diarrhea, headaches, lack of appetite, exhaustion, and sleeplessness while hiking over 3,000 meters. These symptoms need to be treated right away. To avoid more problems, hikers must promptly descend to a lower elevation. Many people choose not to inform others out of fear of being sent back and being unable to complete the voyage. Therefore, it inevitably endangers their lives. Don't hide, and alert your guide as soon as you can. You must properly acclimatize in order to prevent altitude sickness symptoms. Your body may more easily adapt to its circumstances by acclimatizing. Water consumption, keeping your own speed, and adhering to your leader's instructions all aid in AMS evasion. Additionally, you should abstain from drinking and smoking while on this excursion.

    Travel Insurance for Annapurna Circuit Trek: 

    A peaceful trip is impossible without comprehensive travel insurance. The cost of medical emergencies and evacuation in the instance of illness or injury is somewhat concerning. As a result, we strongly urge everyone who books a Trek to Annapurna Circuit with Green Valley Nepal Treks to buy travel insurance. We warn you to choose coverage carefully since some insurers have specific restrictions for risky trips. Before acquiring insurance, make sure your insurer is aware of the Green Valley Nepal itinerary you want to adhere to and is prepared to cover all of the activities involved while on the trip. If you wish to go trekking or mountain climbing in the Himalayas, you must have emergency helicopter rescue and medical expenditure coverage with your insurance. Check your insurance policy to be sure that trip cancellation is covered since all payments for deposits are non-refundable.

      Did Annapurna Circuit Trek during Holidays

      I trekked the Annapurna Circuit while on vacation. It is most likely the most popular and magnificent Annapurna Region attraction because of its breathtaking scenery. But it's highly risky for the patient and the frail. You should at least attempt it once in your life, and Green Valley Nepal Treks is a fantastic company to go on this great trek with. The tea rooms have all the amenities, hospitable staff, quality, and professionalism needed to change, keep it up, and remain the same.

    • According to your budget, available time, and degree of fitness, we are willing to modify the Annapurna Circuit package. You may either plan a flight from Jomsom airport to Pokhara after crossing the tallest Thorung La pass, or you can book a full circuit through Poonhill, depending on your timetable. Green Valley Nepal Treks has a track record of planning client-specific treks that meet their needs.

    • The Annapurna Circuit Trek is a strenuous hike. Additionally, it is one of the region's longest hiking trails. Without a guide, you must be vigilant in choosing the appropriate duration, time, and location for your rest. When choosing which village to visit or which path to take, you must use good judgment. If you are not familiar with trekking at high elevations, it could be a little challenging. However, you can lower the hardship of the walk by being emotionally and physically prepared for any eventuality.

    • Even with ongoing car road development, the Annapurna Circuit is still highly recommended. In Nepal's vast wonderland, this adventure will be unforgettable for a lifetime. You will get the chance to see locations like Dhikur Pokhari, Pisang, Thorung Phedi, Manang, Muktinath, and Jomsom. One of Nepal's tallest mountain crossings, Thorung La Pass, will be one you traverse. The journey offers breathtaking views of the surrounding peaks and ranges, including the Annapurna Massif, Lamjung Himal, and Dhaulagiri.

    • Hikers may get Wi-Fi at several guesthouses for a nominal fee. In lower hills, it could function properly, but in the mountains, the connection might not be reliable, making it difficult for hikers to use the internet anytime they need to.

    • The majority of tea rooms do feature western-style flushing toilets, but further up you may discover squat toilets constructed of a porcelain basin on the floor or a few shakily placed boards over a hole in the ground that is always outside the room.

    • Thorung La Pass, at 5416 meters, is the trek's highest point. It will be considerably safer for you if you steadily increase your altitude from a low height to a high elevation. Trekkers can acclimatize effectively to reduce the risk of acute mountain sickness by staying longer in Manang. Walking gently and consuming adequate water will always be helpful. The main reasons for its riskiness are unpredictable weather and avalanches.

    • Yes, at our office, we offer a secure location where you may conveniently keep your luggage.

    • The average temperature for the Annapurna Circuit walk is between 5 and 10 degrees Celsius. Higher elevations may experience temperatures as low as minus 20 degrees Celsius. Warm gear and sleeping bags that can withstand temperatures as low as minus 20 to 40 degrees are advised if you plan to do the Annapurna Circuit Trek in the winter.
