The Annapurna Circuit Trek is a popular trek in Nepal, takes hikers around the Annapurna massif, passing through diverse landscapes and cultures. The trek typically takes around 12-21 days to complete, depending on the route and the pace of the trekker. The trek starts in the subtropical Marshyangdi River valley and passes through oak and rhododendron forests, alpine meadows, and high-altitude deserts, eventually reaching the Thorong La Pass, which at 5,416 meters is the highest point of the trek. Along the way, hikers will have the opportunity to experience the local culture and visit traditional villages and monasteries. The trek can be physically demanding, but the views of the Annapurna range and the Dhaulagiri range, as well as the cultural experience, make it well worth the effort.
