A blend of environment and society that is missing from treks that travel through communities can be found on 23 Days Annapurna Seven Passes Trek, which will shower adventure seekers with the difficulties of the high passes. Seven high passes, including four that rise beyond 5,000 meters, will be crossed during this journey. The Annapurna Seven High Passes Trek Itinerary has lately become a popular choice for trekkers looking for an extended journey through the beautiful Himalayan terrain. With a combination of camping, homestays, and teahouses, this is a wonderful chance to start a new path. The secluded settlements of Naar and Phu, which were previously forbidden to outsiders, are now prepared to welcome trekkers. Additionally, few trekkers will be encountered along the way because this is a relatively new route.

Drive from Kathmandu to Dharapani hamlet, which is located on the banks of the lovely Marshyangdi River, to begin the Annapurna 7 Passes Trek Itinerary. You will trek from Dharapani to the lovely town of Tilche while passing by beautiful vegetation, waterfalls, and rivers. The further hike from Tilche leads to the villages of Tache and Shongle. After leaving Shongle and traveling via Kuchumaro Phedi, Yarcha Pass, and Kuchumaro Pass, you will arrive in Namakyu village. You will continue your adventure across Meta Pass to reach Meta village. You must hike to Phu village from Meta village. In the Nar Phu valley are Meta Pass and Phu settlement. This location was restricted for outsiders previously but now it is open for trekking.

Annapurna 7 Passes Trek takes hikers through some of Nepal's most stunning and difficult-to-reach environments. Seven high passes, including four that rise beyond 5,000 meters, are crossed throughout the 23-day journey. Along with being challenging due to the high hills, this stroll offers a combination of community and environment that is absent from treks. For hikers looking to spend more time in the beautiful Himalayan environment, the Annapurna Seven Passes Trek has lately become an appealing choice. With a mix of camping, homestays, and teahouses, this is an excellent chance to start a new route when you are still trackless along the way.

  • The Seven High Passes Trip of Annapurna is appropriate for you if you have already completed the Annapurna Base Camp Trek and the Annapurna Circuit Trek and wish to take on a more difficult trek in the Annapurna region.

Preparation for Annapurna Seven Passes Trek

You should begin building up your strength and endurance a few months ahead of time since you would need to trek up and down an unstable terrain for 18 days while carrying your backpack that weighed at least 6 kg for 6 to 7 hours every day on average. Create a plan for your weekly workouts, and at least once a week, walk up and down a hill while wearing your backpack weighing six to twelve kilos.

Your legs and muscles will become more capable of handling any difficulties that may arise throughout your journey as you increase your hill training. Training is crucial since you will be trekking at a greater altitude, which will result in you getting less oxygen and your lungs being unable to provide your body with the proper quantity of oxygen. So, if you want to succeed on the Annapurna Seven High Passes Trek and avoid upsetting the other trekkers, start working out, do weightlifting, and walk while carrying your backpack to become in shape. Even experienced trekkers prepare themselves for such a struggle beforehand.

While planning a trek to Annapurna Seven High Passes, don't neglect the importance of mental preparation. Although the adventure cannot be compared to climbing Everest in terms of difficulty, it is nonetheless a tough path that takes many days. Be ready for the necessities, quickly shifting weather, and a high likelihood of altitude sickness.

    Annapurna Seven Passes Trek Difficulty Level

    The Seven High Passes Trek of Annapurna is really challenging. This trek's tough level of difficulty is a result of the route's great elevation. Along the trekking trail, at a height of 5416 meters, Thorung La is the highest elevation pass in the region. This part of the journey is so challenging that it is closed for most of the year due to the extreme cold and heavy snowfall. You must be really determined to accomplish the Annapurna 7 Passes Trek since 4 out of the 7 passes are more than 5000 meters above sea level. Additionally, when traveling, you always remain above 3000 meters. Some of the most challenging terrains, which are typically harsh, rocky, and steep, are traversed. Compared to many other treks, the difficulty of the Annapurna Seven High Passes Trek cannot be adjusted. Even though you have the option to skip some of the pathways, doing so would result in you missing out on the adventure's best moments. The only way a trekker can better handle the challenges of the Annapurna 7 High Passes Trek is to prepare physically and mentally.

      Seven High Passes Trek of Annapurna with Green Valley Nepal Treks

      I had planned and traveled to Nepal with a friend. We trekked through the Seven High Passes Trek of Annapurna. We looked at indigenous ethnic groups and the natural world. This walk, which begins at a low elevation and ascends to its highest point, is difficult, but you will thoroughly appreciate it. Our tour guide is knowledgeable about the area and has years of experience and training. Porters were quite resilient and upbeat. Green Valley Nepal Treks provides excellent service. I should mention that experiencing an adventure in Nepal will transform your life and should be done at least once in your lifetime. I'd want to thank Arjun and the Green Valley Nepal Treks, which is a company I wholeheartedly endorse for anybody considering trekking in Nepal.

    FAQs
    • Without a guide, solo trekkers are not allowed to traverse the Nar Phu Valley. It needs a minimum of two group members and a certified trekking guide. One of the regions of Nepal's vast Himalayas restricted area is the Nar Phu Valley. As a result, you need to follow the trekking permit instructions. However, it is impossible to trek totally on your own if you don't want to hire a guide.

    • All seven passes in the Annapurna region are Kuchumro Pass (4900 m), Yarcha Pass (4834 m), Meta Pass (4635 m), Phu Pass (5043 m), Naar Pass (5390 m), Kangla (5300 m), and Thorung La (5416 m).

    • The vast majority of locations in your tea houses feature charging stations. By spending some more cash, you may charge your gadgets. It's a good idea to pack a two- or three-pin travel adaptor and store your electronics in a warm location at night.

    • The answer is no, you may only utilize in urban areas such as Pokhara and Kathmandu, not on the trekking route. All you need while traveling outside of the city is cash, preferably in tiny denominations. Before you head to the highlands, kindly exchange your money for local Nepali rupees.

    • To filter the tap water offered in the guest homes along the journey, we advise either bringing water purification pills or drinking only boiling water. Boiled water is available for a modest cost. Although most establishments have mineral water accessible, there is no place to discard plastic bottles, therefore we urge visitors to do all they can to save the environment.

    • Yes, it is safe for a single woman or girl to visit Nepal and do trekking alone. We take greater responsibility for this issue and provide complete protection and safety for female travelers traveling alone. We can also set up a female trekking guide upon request.

    • The majority of tea houses will charge a nominal fee for internet access. Although the WI-FI service may not be extremely quick, you can check for urgent messages or updates that are relevant to your job.

    • For two trekkers carrying around 25 kg of baggage, Green Valley Nepal Treks will offer one porter (maximum 12 kg for each trekker). Porters are those employees that not only carry your bags but also uplift your spirits. They could put out extra effort to get you to your goal because of your generosity and devotion.

    • There are no issues at all for vegetarians because lodges often provide vegetarian meals. Additionally, in order to prevent food poisoning, we constantly advise our clients to consume vegetarian meals. High altitude meals that are not vegetarian are unsafe for the stomach.

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