“A relaxation beneath the majestic Himalayas, worthwhile to live in.”
The Annapurna Circuit Trek is one of the most incredible treks in Nepal. This trek offers a sensational Mountain view of the Annapurna Mountain Ranges almost throughout the trip. Moreover, as there is less use of flying in airplanes; this trip is one of the most carbon-neutral travel itineraries. Not only that but the Annapurna Circuit Nepal trek distance is around 160 Kilometers (100 miles) in length which is not physically challenging. Although, you will have to be physically fit to trek in Nepal as usual.
The trekking tour has managed to stay away from the soil street. This is because it has been built through the Kali Gandaki Valley.
Not only that but the Annapurna Circuit's cost is reasonable than that of the others. This circuit adventure trek package cost usually ranges from around $900-1000 per person. If you manage to have a bigger group the cost can also be reduced with a certain discount.

NOTE: It is recommended that you arrive in Kathmandu a day earlier before you start your trek (if you do not have a day tour of Kathmandu scheduled). And If you have scheduled a Kathmandu day tour you should arrive two days before the actual day of trekking.
If you can arrive a day earlier, it will be best for you as you will get some time to rest, know about the trekking you are doing, get info about the trekking routes, and get time to buy trekking equipment if necessary. Adding some extra days besides actual trekking days will help you enjoy your trip to Nepal to the fullest without having to worry about any preparations, flight delays, and missing international flights.
