The Annapurna Conservation Area boasts some of the best treks in the planet. You can choose between a few days to a few months of rewarding trails. I had the pleasure of trekking thru this region with Kristof, a friend from Belgium. We managed to hike thru the Annapurna Circuit and the Annapurna Sanctuary trails. They are spectacular!
This page in particular is designed as a guide to would be hikers in the region. Please keep in mind that nothing is set in stone in remote areas of the Himalayas so do expect things to change by the time you make it over there. Also, do take weather into account as it’s subject to change. You may get stranded for a few days waiting for a snow storm or rain to pass.
As for times given on the “Things to do” tips, all I ask is for you to please take it as an estimate. The times given in the tips do not (DO NOT) include brakes such as the ones you’ll need to eat lunch, drink tea, enjoy the scenery, or to simply take pictures. If you are a gun-ho hiker then you will find the times given to be too long for you. If you prefer to take it easy and go slowly, then you will find you will be rushing to complete the trek with the times given. I guess the best thing is for you to take things at your own pace. We met this couple from California who where doing the Jomosom trail (typically 7-11 days) in a leisurely 5 weeks! It allowed them time to stay more then a few days in their favorite villages doing side-treks and the like. Personally, I would rather have more time to burn, then being rushed to the end. After all, we all travel to enjoy ourselves, no???
