The Worlds Best Hiking - Annapurna Circuit


About three weeks is what is considered the appropriate amount of time required to experience the entire Annapurna Circuit, but this area in the Nepalese Himalayas offers abundant opportunities for shorter treks in similarly extraordinary environments. Regarded by many as the ultimate "top of the world" hike, the Annapurna Circuit delivers cultural and natural experiences that will stay with the visitor for life.

"The magnificent mountain scenery, seen at close quarters includes Annapurna 8,091 metres which was the first 8,000 metre peak to be climbed, the magnificent ice pyramid Dhauligiri 8,167 metres, once the home of the legendary Buddhist guru Padmasamba, and Machhupuchhare 6,993 metres, considered by many to be the most beautiful mountain in the world."
