Overview Annapurna Circuit Trek with Annapurna Base Camp (ACT+ABC)
ACT: Annapurna Circuit Trek
ABC: Annapurna Base Camp
This trek includes both Annapurna Base Camp and the Annapurna Circuit, which encircle the Annapurna massif and offer a thorough overview of the western region of Nepal. Among the highlights of this walk are the exhilarating Thorong La Pass, the well-known Muktinath Temple, the distinctive Gurung, and Thakali villages, and the soothing hot springs at Tatopani. Stunning mountains including the Annapurna Massif, Thorung Peak, Nilgiri, Chulu West and East, Tukuche Peak, Dhaulagiri, and Lamjung Himal may be seen up close as you hike.
Base Camp and the Circuit of Annapurna Trek highlight the entire Annapurna region while exploring all the well-known locations. We structure this trip around Annapurna with a base camp schedule to minimize the impact of road work in some areas. This trek is probably one of the most diverse in terms of culture and topography trekking route on the entire planet.
More on ACT+ABC
During the ACT+ ABC trek, we also get to explore Milarepa’s cave and Tilicho Lake on our walk through the less used hiking trails of upper Pisang, Ngwal Braka, and Khangsar. It is not just one of the difficult crossings, but also a highly rewarding climb, to cross the Thoung la at an elevation of 5400. To get around the walk-on road from Kagbeni to Tatopani, we drive. In Nepali, the word for hot water is Tatopani. After a more than two-week walk, we enjoy this natural hot spring bath. Additionally, we begin our ascent to Ghorepani, which serves as the starting point for the trip to the base camp of the Annapurna Circuit. To observe the magnificent panoramic view of the Dhaulagiri and Annapurna Himalayan range, we trek to the renowned Poon hill viewpoint. While making a round of the Annapurna massif, we will realize that we have already come extremely near to some of the peaks in the Annapurna ranges.
