We can encounter a gamut of topological variations in the Annapurna Circuit trek within the duration of a normal trek. Aptly titled as Nepal’s classic trek the Annapurna Circuit trek displays divergent landscape ranging from the sub-tropical region to the alpine region and the semi-desert region.

The Annapurna Circuit trek is demanding even for a seasoned trekker, but it is an exceptional introduction to walking in Nepal for those who are physically fit. This lodge based trek offers you magnificent vistas of Annapurna and Dhaulagiri mountain ranges and the opportunity to observe at close quarters the lifestyle and cultures of the different tribes of Nepal.
