Annapurna Circuit Base Camp Trek - Complete Journey in Annapurna

Annapurna Circuit with Base Camp Trek explores all the popular destinations and highlights the entire Annapurna region. We plan this around Annapurna with the base camp itinerary to avoid the effect of road construction in some sections as long as possible. We follow the NATT route to explore the places of interest in the Annapurna region. No doubt the world's number one trekking trail in terms of cultural and topographical diversity.

We trek through the less trodden trekking routes of upper Pisang, Ngwal Braka, and Khangsar exploring Milarepa's cave and Tilicho lake. This lake is the world's highest-situated lake. Crossing the Thoung la over 5400 is one of the challenging passes but a very rewarding climb. Thus, to explore and capture the great view of Himalaya vistas, wind-eroded upper Mustang topography, and the Tibetan plateau. We drive from Kagbeni to Tatopani to avoid the walk on the road. Tatopani means hot water in the Nepali language. We enjoy the natural hot spring water bath after more than two weeks of the trek, obviously, in the middle of the journey to Annapurna.

Specially designed for them who wish to complete the base camp with classic around Annapunra massif journey at once.

Furthermore, we ascend to Ghorepani, the junction point of the Annapurna circuit base camp trek. Then, we hike to the famed Poon hill viewpoint to see the majestic panoramic view of the Dhaulagiri and Annapurna Himalayan ranges. We have already been very close to some of the peaks in the Annapurna ranges while making a round on the Annapurna massif.

Teahouse Trekking to Base Camp and Round Annapurna

Now it's time to head toward another popular trekking destination of the base camp of Annapurna. We trek via Tadapani, Chomrung, and Dovan on our way to Machhapuchhre and Annapurna base camps. This base camp is a sanctuary where one gets surrounded by snow-capped peaks all around. An amphitheater - an incredible vista never to forget. Now we have been to the entire Annapurna region. Thus, we head down to Nayapul on our way to Pokhara. A lake city, a holiday destination for many travelers to end our 4-week-long trip to Nepal. Thus this trek is a complete trekking plan for the Annapurna region, trekking to the Annapurna circuit and base camp trek in one go.

                                                          Fantastic trek

                                                          An absolutely fantastic trek. This combines both the Circuit with the Sanctuary. These two treks complement each other perfectly. The Circuit is a complete immersion into Nepalese culture and the environment starting in the lowland valleys and culminating with the high-altitude crossing at Thorung La Pass. The Sanctuary is the perfect climax for this trek, with unbelievable close-up vistas and panoramas. Mountain Monarch did a fantastic job of guiding. Their policy of one trekker: and one porter is to be commended. During our trek, we saw many instances of porters carrying excessive weight (double duffels!). By reducing loads and creating additional jobs, MM is doing a great thing. Keep up the great work, Pradip!

                                                          When we got sick in Manang, our guide (Yam) adjusted our itinerary (we skipped Tilicho Lake) to allow us to get better. This allowed us to break up the long day & climb from Tatopani to Ghorepani into two days. This change in itinerary worked wonderfully.

                                                          Our guide produced a bottle of antiseptic hand wash at every meal before being served—an effortless but nice touch.

                                                          As we approached high altitude, Yam pulled out a blood oxygen saturation meter to measure our blood oxygen levels at every dinner. This is the same meter used by the HRA clinic in Manang. The meter gave us objective data to reinforce the fact that we felt no ill effects from the altitude. A very reassuring thing. This was so unusual that other trekkers around us asked to try it out!

                                                          We give our highest recommendation to MM and the combined Annapurna Circuit and Sanctuary trek. We plan to return in a few years to do Everest with MM!

                                                          Great service

                                                          I would highly recommend MM to anyone traveling to Nepal. A local company is passionate about providing excellent service and ensuring that you have a safe, fun, and unforgettable experience. Our tour guide was professional and also lots of fun! Our porters and assistant guide were also great. They went above and beyond helping us with everything—a very knowledgeable and well-trained team. 

Our guide was very conscious of safety and good hygiene also. We were in safe hands with MM! 

A week after finishing up with MM, my friend was Badly sick in the hospital. MM came to visit us and was really concerned and supportive! 

A beautiful company that genuinely cares. Also, they are local, and I think it is always best to support local 

Go with MM. You will not regret it. Enjoy!

                                                          Excellent, Professional, Pleasant, Friendly and Helpful

                                                          I just completed a 27-day trek around the entire Annapurna massif with MMA. This was my second trip with MMA, and I was pleased to have had a fully satisfactory trip yet again. The staff is excellent, professional, pleasant, friendly, and helpful. I highly recommend traveling with MMA for any trekking or climbing in Nepal.
