Annapurna Circuit Trek is the most classic trekking in the entire Annapurna region. No doubt, Annapurna Circuit Trek is one of the most popular trekking destinations in the world. This trek is very scenic, incredible with landscapes and himalayan valleys. This trek offers magnificent views of the Annapurna massif itself and incredible views of Annapurna region himalayan panorama. 

This trek involves walking mainly in two river valleys, Marshyangdi River Valley and Kali Gandaki River valley encircling the massive Annapurna, and all the Annapurna region mountains peaks throughout this trek. 

The first leg of this trek is natural, walking through the farming villages and green valleys so it is beautiful walking. Manang, the most amazing village in Marshyangdi valley offers magnificent towering views of Annapurnas peaks and mountains. Manang is a great himalayan valley with incredible landscapes, views, typical Manang villages and its peoples. 

Thorong-la pass, at altitude of 5416m is known as the highest trekking pass of the world. After Thorong-la pass, we will be in Kali Gandaki valley, which is the most landscape himalayan valley of Nepal. Cross mustang, you will be walking in the deepest gorge of the world, between Dhawalagiri (8167m) and Annapurna I (8091m). The last leg of this trek will be in green nature, forested hill surroundings. 

This trek provides an excellent opportunity to experience lifestyles, culture and traditions of different indiginous groups, and cast peoples living in this region. 

Tilicho Lake Trek in Annapurna Circuit: 
Tilicho Lake, situated at approx. altitude of 4919m from sea level, is the highest altitude situated lake in the world. Tilicho Lake is incredible. Massive towering view of Tilicho Peak (7134m) and panorama of other Annapurna peaks are spectacular from here. 

This lake trek is through the rough trail, less developed and has some steep section trek trails. Tilicho Lake trek separates from Manang to Khansar village, then to Tilicho Base Camp hotel to Tilicho Lake, then return to Yak Kharka to join Annapurna Circuit Trek route.

We had an absolutely amazing trip organized by Chet! Thank you so much Chet for going above and beyond for us! We had planned to do the Annapurna Circuit and Tilicho Lake in October 2022 but unfortunately due to bad weather, we didn't make it up to Thorong La and Tilicho Lake - after Pisang. However we managed to do Ghorepani -Poon Hill. Everything was very well organized but mountain weather is very unpredictable. All in all, it was a wonderful experience.

Our guide, Navaraj, was really professional and fun and one of the best guides we've worked with. He ensured everything was well organized and we had an absolute blast with him! He tried to get us the best accommodations along the trail and for that I'm grateful 😅

Highly highly recommend Chet and his team for any of your Nepal treks! You are in the best of hands. Thank you Chet, for everything!

I have all the great memories with Classic Vacations Nepal

I did the Annapurna Circuit trek with Classic Vacations Nepal last May. It was my solo trek. I had a wonderful time. I talked to several guide services before booking this trek with Chet Bhatta and his company. He delivered all the services as he promised. My guide Lok was nice and gentle. He made sure that I had a good time throughout the trek days. My porter Bisnu was nice, and never complained about carrying my trek bags. He was strong !

Chet took me to a welcome dinner at nepalese restaurant for local food and it was great. He even met me at the end of the trek and we had dinner together. He was always concerned for his services. I have all the great memories with his company. I will come back soon for Everest Trek and I will use his services again.

We enjoyed this trek very much! We had a great time.

I trekked to Annapurna Circuit & Tilicho with my brother. Chet Bhatta organized our trek. Our guide Madhu was knowledgeable, and a fantastic person. He knew almost everyone on the trail! Tilicho lake trek was tough but we managed to reach this beautiful lake. Thorong-la was hard but we started earlier than everyone from thorong phedi so we had extra time at the top on this magnificent day. 

Thank you Chet Bhatta and Classic Vacations Nepal team for your extraordinary services to our trip.  We enjoyed this trek very much! We had a great time.
