The Annapurna Circuit (Around Annapurna) is a popular name for a trek within the Annapurna mountain range of central Nepal. The total length of the route varies between 160-230 km (100-145 mi), depending where the motor transportation is used and where the trek is ended.
The trek rises to an altitude of 5,416m on the Thorung La pass, touching the edge of the Tibetan plateau. This trek crosses two different river valleys and encircles the Annapurna massif, crossing Thorung La (5416m), the highest pass on this trek. Practically all trekkers hike the route counter clockwise, as then the daily altitude gain is slower and crossing the high Thorong La pass is easier and safer.
The mountain scenery, seen at close quarters includes the Annapurna Massif (Manaslu, Annapurna II-IV-III), Dhaulagiri, Gangapurna 7455m, Tilicho Peak 7134m and Nilgiri 7061m.
The trek begins at Besisahar or Bhulbhule in the Marshyangdi river valley Thorong La pass (5416m) and Kali Gandaki river valley. Besisahar can be reached after a seven hour drive from Kathmandu. The trail passes along paddy fields and into subtropical forests, several waterfalls and gigantic cliffs, and various villages.
Annapurna Circuit Trekking has often been voted as the best long distance trek in the world, as it combined, in its old full form, a wide variety of climate zones from tropics at 600 m to the arctic at 5416 m at the Thorong La pass and cultural variety from Hindu villages at the low foothills to the Tibetan culture of Manang Valley and lower Mustang. Continuing construction of a road has greatly shortened the trail and altered the feel of the villages
