Annapurna Circuit that has been tagged as the world’s number one trekking designation and Annapurna sanctuary where the name itself suggests of its divinity and spirituality is certainly a phenomenal combination trek.  The circuit which has served as an ancient Nepal-Tibet trade route delivers you the genuine culture, Tibetan Buddhism influence, and of course an exquisite view of Annapurna, Manaslu, Dhaulagiri, and many more. Walking through this ancient salt trade route and the experience you get is beyond belief. Annapurna Circuit goes through five different districts namely – Lamjung, Manang, Mustang, Myagdi, and Kaski the variation you get in the transformation is unbelievable. However, the constrution of the roads in the area has taken some charm away from the trek, especially the part after the Pass. Thus Himalayan Dynasty avoiids the road affected part of the trek. The addition of Magical Tilicho Lake adds so much value to your trip. Annapurna Circuit and Tilicho Lake combination trek delivers you such an experience that nowhere in the world you would perceive such an imperial experience. You start from the subtropical and gradually get to tropical, alpine, and then eventually desert, and the way you witness the change in the topography is nowhere to be found. 

Thorang-La (pass) - 5,416 m/17,764 ft

Waking up earliest in the morning and going over the Thorang-La cannot be matched with the rest of the high pass walks. As the morning sun hits the trail, you would be stunned to find yourself in the heavenly abode like place surrounded by majestic mountains. The views from the Thorong la pass is truly spectacular, spreads from the northwest Once Forbidden Kingdom of Mustang to the incredible mountain ranges of Annapurna and Dhaulagiri to the south.  Descend towards Kaligandiki valley from the pass is challenging but rewarding as we trek to the shrine of Muktinath enjoying and exploring the arid beauty of the Tibetan plateau. 

Tilicho Lake (4,919m /16135 ft)

Situated at 4919m above sea level, Tilicho is one of the most popular destinations in the area. 360 degree view of snowcapped mountains gives you the feeling of being right in the heart of Himalayas. Once debated as the highest lake in the world, Tilicho lake is one of the popular destinations for foreign and Local trekkers. The reflection of snowcapped peaks on a clear day is truly mesmerizing. And to see the small waves (sometimes big enough to step back a few meters) formed by avalanches from Tilicho Peak that end in the Lake is sensational.

It’s another easy day with magnificent views of snowcapped peaks including Tilicho Peak.

A special effort for approximately 3 hours will take you to one of the most beautiful high-altitude lakes in the world. Due to thin air some may find a little exhausted and experience heavy breathing. However, all these are very normal, yet we recommend everyone take it very slowly. Tilicho lake situated at 4919 m right at the bottom of Tilicho Peak 7134m is second to none with its surreal beauty. On a clear day the reflection of mountains on the lake is mesmerizing and the 360⁰ view of snowcapped peaks makes you feel like being in the heart of Himalayas.

There is a small teashop by the side of the Lake where trekkers can have a drink or some snack. With the feeling of joy and accomplishment we will retrace our way back to Tilicho Base Camp for Lunch and to Shreekharka after lunch.

Today might be a short day in terms of hours walked but by no means its easy. Gaining 600m/1920 ft at this altitude takes a considerable effort. It will take around 2:30 hours to Phedi 4420m where its advised to take a lunch break and afterwards it is very steep uohill for 1:30 hours to High Camp 4800m. Although we have already been to this elevation higher, its still better to take it slow. On the way, you may have ample opportunity to witness the Blue Sheep into the wild or Himalayan Thar including the soaring peak of Chulu.

Though the pass poses no technical problems you need to start  early, around 6 am, so you can proceed slowly and safely. The trail is not steep and long, gradual approach passes several false summits before reaching some stone cairns making the crest of the pass at 5416 m. in fine conditions the views from the pass are truly fantastic. Spread out before you is the entire Annapurna range to the south, the Mukut and Mustang Himal to the west, and the incredibly deep Kali Gandaki valley below. Peaks of Chulu West and east lie to the north, and on either side of the pass are Thorungtse (6482m) to the north and the snow dome of Thorung peak (6484m) to the south. After the pass, we enter into another district of Mustang. The steep descent from the pass is guaranteed to make the knees wobble, but you are compensated with the view of mighty Dhaulagiri (8167m) and Tukche peak (6920m). It normally takes 2:30 hours to reach the top of the pass and about similar time to reach the bottom on the other side.

Useful Information


All of our treks in Nepal start with at least one day in Kathmandu. On arrival, you should proceed through Customs / Immigration.  Once you have passed through Immigration please collect your baggage and proceed through the exit point where you will meet HIMALAYAN DYNASTY representative with the company’s’ CLIP / SIGN BOARD to welcome and transfer you to the designated hotel in Kathmandu.

The hotel accommodation in Kathmandu and Pokhara will be on a twin bed sharing room in a 3-star hotel on bed and breakfast basis. Trek briefing will be organized in Kathmandu by your Group leader making sure all of the trekkers have proper gears and are prepared for their long-awaited adventure holiday. Should you have any queries feel free to ask your group leader or the hotel reception who are always pleased to assist you. Single supplements would be provided as per the requirement on a trivial additional cost. The evening will be highlighted by a traditional Royal Nepali food in a typical Nepal restaurant which would be a perfect event to get along with your group and break the silence. 

Since we don’t consider drinking water straight from the tap to be safe, we request you to use boiled water or the mineral water provided in your rooms. 


Since Nepal has only been open to the outside world since 1951 and despite in the midst of great social transformation, Nepal still thrives as a very spiritual and conventional country. Though Nepali people consider foreigners as special guest yet they are expected to respect and respond to the Nepalese customs, social norms, and beliefs sensitively. Nudity and presenting of an intimate relationship are totally unacceptable. Typically, they greet with a ‘Namaste’ "Nah-mah-stay", it’s a gesture of greeting which is performed by placing our hands together to our heart and slightly bow our head. Namaste literally means "I bow to the divine in you".

Respect holy places – preserve what you have come to see, never touch or remove religious objects. When entering any Nepalese home, temples, and monasteries, always remove your shoes. When taking photographs, respect privacy – ask for permission and use restraint. Many Hindu temples may not be open to non-Hindus. Always ask permission before entering.

While giving or taking anything Nepalese use two hands which is a symbol of respect rather than doing it with just one hand. However, offering things to the begging children is highly discouraged because it only encourages begging. If you would like to donate to any school or charity organization, your group leader will always be there to guide you to do it in an appropriate method.


As for exchanging the foreign currency, you can either do it from the Banks or from any of the registered Money Exchange counters that we have in the Thamel area. However, we don’t persuade carrying too much cash due to the high probability of it being lost or stolen. Withdrawing money from the ATM is very preferable though the cash you receive from the ATM is always Nepali Rupees. ATMs can be the most convenient way to get at your money, again the downside is - they are not always a good value. There might be a certain amount of transaction fees you may have to face when using an ATM in Nepal.

There are normally no exchange facilities on the trek so your trek leader will be giving you necessary guidelines as to how much approximately you are to carry. 


The equivalent of USD15 per day per trekker is generally sufficient for personal expenses like Shower, Battery Charging, Ocassional Laundry and Drinks. We recommend you to carry about USD 300 additional as Emergency backup.  The amount required in Kathmandu and Pokhara for meals, short exploration and transport would normally be covered by about US$ 40 per day. Shopping will vary greatly from person to person.


While in Kathmandu please do not leave your room unlocked. If you are out on a short stroll or on any appointments, make sure to accommodate and secure your valuables – that can either be in your locked luggage or hotel safety deposit box. 

Before we depart for our incredible adventure your leader will organize a safety store facility for your left luggage and the safety deposit box for your valuables that you wish to leave behind. However, please follow the hotel safety guideline over the loss of key to your deposit box.  While trekking never leave your valuables unattained. It’s always safe to carry them on your daypack. Make sure to lock your Tea-House rooms while going out even if it’s for a short time period.  In case of loss or theft please report it to the nearest police check post where you need to obtain a written report. In any such situation, your group leader would be the best person to talk to.  


20 Kilograms / 40 Pounds is the weight limitation for your Annapurna Trekking that includes your overall baggage weight (daypack and your luggage). You may bring more than specified extra luggage which can always be left behind at the Hotel safety store in Kathmandu or Pokhara. However, it doesn’t sincerely require to be an exact figure, 1 or 2 Kg extras per person wouldn’t make a much difference. Significantly, the porter luggage weight limitation is 30 kg / 66 pounds as one porter will be dealing with 2 duffel bags. So it’s always best to minimize your weight limitations. However, regarding what you need to bring carry with you is given in detail at our Trip Information page.


Driving from Kathmandu to Pokhara is one of the most remarkable experiences that you would perform while doing Annapurna treks with us in Nepal. We Normally start after breakfast around 8:00 in the morning from your hotel.You Group leader along will be accompanying on this sensational drive to the most beautiful lake city of Pokhara. Unlike Local or Public buses in Nepal, we will have the privillage of going with our own pace andstopping at desired places. The Drive is around 6 hours through beautiful countryside and we will take tea breaks and lunch breaks in the local restaurants along the way.


Accommodation at Ghorepani Poonhill Trekking area is essentially in the tea-house that will be basic on twin bed sharing room with common toilets. Rooms with attached toilets and the single supplement will be provided depending on the availability as not all destinations in the Annapurna region offer a single supplement due to the limitation of tea-houses over the restrictions and obligations of National park rules and regulations.


In Kathmandu breakfast is included beside the welcome dinner in a Typical Nepali restaurant that would serve Traditional Royal Nepal Food. In the Ghorepani region, you have the option to choose your breakfast, lunch, and dinner with hot beverages from the menu that has multiple selections. However, your leader would recommend food variation depending on the availability as much as possible that is good for your health in the mountains, nutritious, plentiful, and tasty. In our entire trip, we will eat all the meals in the local Tea-houses including our lunch and our staff will make sure that your food is prepared with hygiene. We can also cater for specific dietary needs if you advise in advance besides our delicious mixture of Nepalese, Indian, Chinese, and continental food. 


For Drinking, Himalayan Dynasty will provide you Boiled or Filtered water. The refilling will be done every morning at breakfast and every evening at dinner time. If you have about two waterbottles, it is generally enough. You may carry more if you feel like you need more. For environmental concern, we discourage our clients to use disposable plastic mineral water bottles on any of our adventure trips to Nepal. Just in Case you have to buy water we recommend you buying from Safe Drinking Water Stations set in all towns or villages in Annapurna Circuit trialfrom at minimal costs. 


Tipping is an entirely personal matter. - It is also an indication of your satisfaction with the service delivered by our local trekking crew. As they work really hard to make your holiday the most memorable one, tipping is more like a token of gratitude of saying THANK YOU to your local crew. As a guideline average tipping is around 10% of your trip cost per trekker. Many people also like to donate various items of equipment to the porters and trek staff who would very warmly receive these items. Your Group Leader will make arrangements for a fair distribution of your gratitude and the used items (possibly by raffle) amongst the trek crew. We recommend you to make separate tipping for your trekking Group Leader.


Since the Annapurna circuit delivers different variations, the length of the trip entirely depends on which package people prefer to choose. However, as the whole Annapurna circuit is approximately 248 km / 154 miles in total length. The reason why it was considered as No. 1 trekking destination was simply because it goes through five different districts of Nepal namely – Lamjung, Manang, Mustang, Myagdi, and Kaski which all vary in terrain and topography.

Annapurna circuit trek is not a stroll in a park it is quite demanding. The highest elevation you would trek is 5416m / 17,769 feet which is Thorong La pass. Though a most admired trekking destination, the high altitude walking into the thin air does matter. However, the daily elevation advancement is very gradual which prepares ample time for acclimatization. Anyone with sound fitness can join the trek. Nevertheless, it is not appropriate for someone with very weak ankles, knee, heart, or lung problems - necessary check-up and consent from your doctor is a must.

if you choose a package flying from Jomsom then there few significant things you are to know. Jomsom happens to be the 'Windy Valley' of Nepal to which our air aviation is quite strict about flying small planes to these remote mountain airstrips. This means flying to or from this mountain airport is very safe. Further, there are flight delays and sometimes cancellation under various weather circumstances. However, this isn't an everyday story and there is an alternative of driving to and from Jomsom in-case of flight cancellation. Though driving may be earnestly long (9/10 hrs.) in comparison to flying yet the fun of driving through the world’s deepest gorge has a different charm.

Yes, with us everybody reserves the right to customize their trip as per their requirements. We are always there to assist you with the necessary options and guidance if needed. We together can come up with a remarkable journey.

Depending on your time schedule you can either book for the whole circuit via Poonhill or semi circuit i.e. flying from Jomsom airport to Pokhara after the highest Thorong La pass. we have always been a master in organizing customized trek for the clients as per their requirements. 

Spring and Autumn is the best time to do Annapurna Circuit Trek.
Spring: April to mid-June 
Autumn: September, October, November, And December
However, despite low temperatures and extreme chill travelers do trek to Annapurna circuit trek even in winter. 

We don’t normally deal distance in Km or Miles while trekking in any parts of Nepal rather we do it in hours. Typically, every day we walk around 6 / 9 hours excluding your multiple breaks and lunch. However, your pace makes a difference with the time you reach the destination. In fact, we are opposed to contending ourselves to get to the destination earlier than the recommended time. We rather take it really slow making your vacation more memorable and enjoyable than exhausting. The longest hours we hike would be the day we go over the Thorang-La Pass - can be from 9 to 13 hours depending on the trail condition which vastly varies with our without snow. 


We use Family Oriented Lodges which are at its best offering you the comfort experience and its typical local environment. It’s basically the extension of their own houses that offers you a twin bed sharing room with common toilets. In a few places, the accommodation facility is pretty basic and sometimes the possibility of sharing rooms with others can be the occasion due to the shortage of rooms. However, as for many places, the facility is awesome. With the advancement in tourism, the tea-houses in these areas have evolved to earnestly convenient hotels. 

You have a variety of choices for the food more than anyone could imagine. Nevertheless, with us, absolute contentment prevails in regards to recommending meals and choosing Local Tea-House.

It’s really hard to skip the motor road and take entirely the new trekking trail. Every now and then we will encounter motorway as the new trekking route graphed by NATTs (New Annapurna Trekking Trails) isn’t under full operation. Though we can’t promise you of evading the motorway and taking entirely a new trekking trail yet we assure you that in a few places we give our best to avoid the motor road and walk the natural trekking trail. 


Annapurna Circuit trek is a physically demanding trek suitable for keen walkers. No previous extensive experience is required for this trip. Even the beginners have done it without much difficulty as the advancement of altitude here is very gradual. However, some pre-physical training certainly will be an added advantage as the Annapurna circuit involves a lot of undulating climbing with altitude variation. As a part of your training, it’s highly advisable to prepare yourself with everyday undulating walking, running, or cardio. Walking up and down the steps positively helps you to synchronize with the Nepal hills terrain.


Himalayan Dynasty provides you with a very warm sleeping bag with fleece liner and wind-stopper duvet jackets with attach hood.

Besides we also provide you with a COMPLIMENTARY duffel bag, T-shirt, and Trekking map.

For Drinking, Himalayan Dynasty will provide you Boiled or Filtered water. The refilling will be done every morning at breakfast and every evening at dinner time. If you have about two waterbottles, it is generally enough. You may carry more if you feel like you need more. For environmental concern, we discourage our clients to use disposable plastic mineral water bottles on any of our adventure trips to Nepal. Just in Case you have to buy water we recommend you buying from Safe Drinking Water Stations set in all towns or villages in Annapurna Circuit trialfrom at minimal costs. 

Unlike Everest, there have been fewer records of Altitude Sickness nightmare stories among trekkers while doing Annapurna Circuit Trek.  Acute mountain sickness is something more of a reaction that materializes in our body under a lower rate of oxygen level. It’s a mountain ailment which is fatal. It’s hard to predict who of what age and physical fitness can actually get of A.M.S. However, the Himalayan Dynasty delivers professionals who are well equipped with medication and oxygen cylinders to deal with A.M.S. Besides, there are ample preventive strategies to deal any mountain sickness. Food poisoning, severe diarrhea, stomach problems are other very common mountain ailments that can be nightmarish than the A.M.S.


All our itineraries are intended to make the altitude variation appropriate for ample acclimatization. Still, the chance of getting AMS is probable even though our everyday elevation advancement is very gradual. Your Group Leader will instruct you with the necessary guidance on when and how to take the Diamox. Moreover, your certified and skilled Leaders are very proficient in dealing with any altitude-related ailments. Over any doubts of being affected by altitude pressure, you can always take 250mg per day starting from Manang until your highest camp.

The charging privilege for your devices is possible in almost all lodges unless if occasionally they didn’t encounter any problem with their power supply or their Solar panels.
