.Annapurna Circuit Trek is a Popular Thorong La High Pass 5416m in Nepal. This is famous for dramatic deep gorges, High Mountain, beautiful landscapes, and Nepalese typical villages. The treks become one of the most arguable hiking routes in Nepal which is very demanding even for seasoned trekkers. It is an exceptional introduction to walking in Nepal for those who are physically fit. We have an opportunity to observe a close-quarter of the lifestyle and the culture of the different tribes of Nepal. The trek establishes wonderful challenges for those who are fond of the traditional way of hiking destinations in Nepal.

Annapurna Circuit Trek is Adventure and High Passes trail. This offers more variety than any other trek where it takes you through virtually every type of scenery that Nepal offers. The trails are rough and there is a small military base near the pass to Jomsom that must be avoided. The scenery is equally breathtaking to continue to the north of the main Himalayan range. These treks cross two different river valleys and encircle the Annapurna massif. The path reaches its highest point at Thorong La pass touching the edges of the Tibetan plateau.

The Accommodation of Annapurna Circuit Trek

Accommodation in the Annapurna circuit is an important aspect that everyone should consider while heading to the adventure trek where you will forget all your problems and sorrows. It is a popular classic trek where the villagers through this route have tea-house to accommodate trekkers. The lodges are comfortable for your initial stage but they may vary going to higher altitudes. You will find a much high-quality lodge, guest-house, and tea-house. All the tea-house sells snacks and other essentials such as tissue, soap, and toilet paper. The rooms are with the two beds with mattresses, pillows, and sheets which are impossible to decide.

Tea-house accommodation is the local and popular accommodation in the Annapurna region where they will provide tourist-friendly hotels and lodges on the trail. Most villages in the trek tea-house are basic ones with basic food facilities and accommodation facilities. The lodges are very comfortable and cozy where you can take a rest. You have to carry an extra sleeping bag with you because at a higher altitude we never know when the weather change in the nighttime. The standard of cleanness is very especially in the peak trekking season and varies a bit from one night.

Annapurna Circuit Trek Permit

In the Annapurna region, most of the trekking trails include the conservation area and restricted area which is why you have to take a permit card while doing trekking. In trekking, you have to enter in Annapurna conservation area and to enter the conservation area you have to show a few official permits if you don’t have then the local government will not allow you to enter this area. It is considered one of the best long-distance trekking destinations in the entire world. You will see the mesmerizing view of Mt Annapurna, Dhaulagiri, Gangapurna, and many more mountains which can be seen from here.

Trekkers in Nepal are allowed to trek however they like but in the Himalayan region or some of the region, there is some restricted area where you can trek however you like. To enter that area you have to take a trekking permit. To take a trekking permit, you have to show the photocopy of your passport and two passport-sized photos. You can easily apply Kathmandu and Pokhara which is two types of Permit Annapurna Conservation area of Project “ACAP” and Trekking Information Management of System “TIMS” It, Better to request which is trust worth Trekking Agencies in Nepal.

How Difficulty is the Annapurna Circuit Trek?

The Annapurna Circuit trek is 5416 meters and is quite challenging and has a high pass. It is a Moderate and High Pass at the high altitude of the Annapurna region with a varied trail that can be rocky, steep, or slippery. This is a bit harder for the trekker to complete this journey because it can be physically challenging without training and preparation because it is the longest trekking in this region. You have to know about the difficulties that may occur during the time of trekking because there are many steep ups and steeps down and after facing the problems and difficulties completing the trek.

The diverse landscape and varying weather may bring more difficulties and a basic fitness level is required for this trekking which means you should be fit and fine physically where you have to walk at least 5 to 6 hours each day. You will have a lesser walking distance with a longer trekking itinerary. There are some trekkers who feel bone-tired in the middle of the trek which is why you have to do some physical exercise before joining this trekking or before starting the trekking.

Annapurna Circuit Trek Altitude sickness Guided

Altitude sickness is the basic which is happened while you are trekking at a high altitude. The problem of altitude sickness is mainly due to the failure of proper adjustment. It is just because the different people have a different levels of patience at a high altitude. That is why physically strong is not enough you have to prepare mentally also which is very important while trekking. There are some symptoms of altitude sickness which are headache, dizziness, vomiting, loss of appetite, difficulty breathing, and many more.

I first met Sappa in 2008 on a family Gokyo Lakes Trek and EBC Trek. At that time, I was greatly impressed by the highly professional approach he took to mountain guiding. I’m very happy to report that in 2014 and 2017  nothing has changed during my Langtang Valley second family trek and Manaslu Circuit Trek. Sappa continues to maintain an exceptionally high standard of service and this together with his warm, generous and engaging personality ensured everyone in our party had an amazing time during their visit to Nepal.

We were treated to fantastic traditional Nepalese food and cultural performances at welcoming and farewell dinners in Kathmandu; expertly and safely guided over 14 days of trekking through an incredibly beautiful landscape; and provided with detailed and knowledgeable commentary during our tours of all the main sites around Kathmandu, Bhaktapur and Patan. I’m very happy to report that the organisation of our transport, sightseeing, accommodation and trekking arrangements was first rate and that over three weeks everything ran very smoothly indeed. Overall, Sappa‘s vast guiding experience and mountain knowledge ensured that our itinerary was structured in such a way that it provided us with a good deal of flexibility and ample time to absorb the magnificent mountain views while trekking, as well as not being rushed on our tours of Kathmandu and surrounds.

On this trip, a few in our party were first time trekkers. What a fantastic introduction to trekking in the Nepal Himalaya they received thanks to the great care and attention to every little detail provided by Sappa and his fabulous support crew Manoj, Shankar and Suraj. Thank you Sappa,for also keeping up the tradition of supplying us with bananas and chocolate bars. I must also mention that the pomegranate seeds the crew provided to us on our way to Langtang was an unexpected but greatly appreciated treat. Importantly, from a safety aspect, we were more than pleased to find that Nepal Base Camp Treks used modern four wheel drive vehicles to take us to the start of our trek in Syabrubesi and also for the return journey from Dhunche. We were also very impressed to observe that Sappa and his company take very good care of their support crews.

If you are planning to visit Nepal, I have no hesitation in recommending Sappa and his company “Nepal Base Camp Treks” for trouble free trekking and touring. You will not be disappointed. I can’t wait for my next trek with Sappa, which will be around Manaslu trek.

German Language: Wir haben mit Sappa und einem Träger im Mai 2011 eine elftägige Trekking Tour durch die Langtang und Helambu Region gemacht. Wir sind das Langtang Tal von Syrabrubesi bis Kanjin Gompa hoch gewandert und dann über die Gosainkunde Seen, den Laurebina Pass und die Helambu Region nach Kathmandu zurückgekehrt. Der Trek war einfach wundervoll! Er führt durch verschiedene Vegetationszonen mit reicher Flora und Fauna und überwältigenden Aussichten auf die Gipfel des Himalaya. Darüber hinaus bot der Trek einen tiefen Einblick die die Tamang Kultur und das Leben und die Tradition der nepalesischen und tibetanischen Bevölkerung.

Sappa ist ein sehr erfahrener Führer, der die Gegend sehr gut kennt. Er verstand es perfekt, die Länge der täglichen Etappen und die Trekkinggeschwindigkeit auf unsere Wünsche und Bedürfnisse anzupassen und war insbesondere ein guter Ratgeber bei Fragen zur Höhenkrankheit. Sappa hat sich um alle Angelegenheiten mit den Lodges, den örtlichen Behörden, den Taxi- und Busfahrern etc. gekümmert. Er hat alle unsere Fragen zu den verschiedenen Bergketten und -gipfeln zur Länge der Auf- und Abstiege und zu den anderen Details der Gegend bereitwillig und mit großer Begeisterung beantwortet. Es war eine große Freude, ihm bei den Anekdoten aus dem Leben der Nepalesen, der Religion, Politik und Natur zuzuhören. Mit seiner Begeisterung und seinem Humor hat Sappa den Trek zu einem unvergesslichen Erlebnis gemacht. Wir können Sappa als erfahrenen, verständnisvollen und sympathischen Führer uneingeschränkt empfehlen. Nach den elf Tagen in der Einsamkeit des Himalaya ist aus unserem Führer ein Freund geworden.”

Sappa é o cara. Visitei o Nepal em duas ocasiões. Na primeira ele foi meu guia no circuito Annapurna, onde caminhamos por 21 dias. Na segunda ele nos guiou nos treks Langtang, Gosainkunda e Helambu por 17 dias. Alem disso, ele foi nosso guia no trek Cheppang Hills. Como se não bastasse, fizemos também o clássico Base Camp Everest partindo de Jiri e passando por Renjo La e Cho La, em 24 dias com o seu irmão Lako. O Nepal é um pais maravilhoso e a companhia de um guia como Sappa fez toda a diferença, pois ele nos explicou muito sobre a cultura local, religião, situação política/conflitos no pais e como funciona a sociedade no Nepal em geral. Ele fala muito bem inglês, é muito bem humorado e as risadas estão garantidas. Pra resumir, você começa a trilha com um guia e termina com um amigo. Recomendo-o sem hesitar. Se tiver perguntas pode me escrever.
