Route Map

Note that access beyond the airport interior requires a plane ticket.


Our commitment to top-tier service begins with prioritizing your stay at the most comfortable level. Whether in Kathmandu or during the trek, we offer star hotels and mountain guesthouses tailored to your preferences. Expect a convenient guesthouse with a serene environment and hygienic food options. Accommodations in the Everest Region, renowned for its superb facilities, showcase a significant improvement from previous years.


Kathmandu offers a paradise of delicious food, boasting a variety of restaurants with diverse cuisines. During the lodge trek, relish Continental, Indian, and Nepali menu choices, including Pasta, Pizza, Mo: Mo, Soup, Dal Bhat, and hot drinks like tea and coffee. Our experienced guides ensure guest satisfaction through meal recommendations.

Trekking Team:

Navigating challenging routes, unpredictable weather, and health concerns in the Himalayas demands expertise. Himalayan Magic Treks excels in providing seasoned local leaders and staff with years of experience to turn challenges into golden memories. Our certified guides are trained in emergency procedures, evacuation, and first aid, prioritizing your safety. Insurance and medical services are part of our commitment.

Field Staffs Rules:

Your safety and comfort require an adequate number of staff, including guides, porters, drivers, and assistant guides. A guide is assigned to every trip, with one assistant guide per 4-9 guests and two for every group of 10. Porter allocation is at a ratio of 1:2 guests, ensuring the load is manageable. Our professional staff is multilingual, capable of communicating in languages such as English, French, German, Italian, Spanish, Chinese, Japanese, and Korean.

Best Season to Trek in Nepal:

Autumn (September - November) and spring (March - May) offer the best trekking conditions, with clear weather and moderate temperatures. Summer (June - August) and winter (December - February) present specific opportunities for unique treks, such as rain shadow areas and winter trails.

Experience & Fitness:

Trekking can be challenging, requiring some level of fitness and experience. While Everest Base Camp Trek doesn't demand extreme fitness, certain routes may be more challenging. Adequate rest time and acclimatization are crucial, and general fitness training, including running and skipping, can be beneficial.


Altitude sickness is a concern when trekking at higher elevations. Proper acclimatization, good health practices, and staying hydrated help prevent altitude-related issues. We incorporate acclimatization days into the trek itinerary and provide medical support and emergency rescue services if needed.

At Himalayan Magic Treks, we prioritize environmental conservation. We actively participate in programs such as Kathmandu Environmental Education Project (KEEP) and advocate for a clean environment.

Tailor-Made Itinerary:

Unforeseen challenges, like natural calamities, health issues, or other complications, may necessitate changes to the itinerary. In such situations, cooperation with your guide and the team is essential for a smooth and successful trek.

Annapurna circuit trek

Ha, what a great time we had. DB our guide was brilliant, he carried a 20kg pack as though it was nothing, was always cheerful and a great laugh.
Nirmal the boss has his own hotel in Kathmandu and we were looked after all the way. We were all experienced mountaineers, so let us make some decisions, DG was always there to help and guide, but in a way that we felt it was our trip. in other words we were not treated like sheep. He was always looking out for signs of latitude sickness and checking our fitness levels and leading to suit. Def a recommend

Annapurna Circuit and Annapurna Basecamp

Himalayan Magic Treks made one of the greatest adventures in my life possible. I did a 22 day hike around Annapurna on the Annapurna Circuit and to it's basecamp. The region was unbelievable beautiful beyond any imaginations and all the people I met on the trek were friendly and helpful.
But what made my trek so uniqueful was my guide who was so friendly and kind ALL the time!! We shared so many good laughs and are linked together because of all the things we experienced.
The trek itself was demanding but with all the help provided by my guide and the company more than doable. They organized almost everything for me. The transport to the region, all the stays, my meals and even helped me by choosing souvenirs in the end. I felt safe all the time even in the higher regions of the trek. The company and my guide informed me before and during the trek about any risks and how we could avoid them.
My guide even tought me some Nepali.
I can highly recommend the trek itself but most of all the company!
Thank you for everythin Nabin and Sitaram!!

Très bon trek avec un très bon retour à nos questions de Nabin. Le guide bijay et nos deux porteurs ont été incroyables et très gentils. On peut adapter le tour à notre niveau . Prendre un sac de couchage est un gros plus pour les auberges.

Sehr zu empfehlen!

Sehr zu empfehlen!
Wir sind im März 2024 mit Himalyan Magic Treks um das Anapurna Gebirge gewandert. Von Deutschland aus haben wir mit Nabin unseren Trek geplant. Seine Reaktionen kamen stets sehr schnell und somit konnten wir die Reise unkompliziert und auf unsere eignen Bedürfnisse angepasst buchen. Die Organisation hinter dem Trek war optimal, auch auf unvorhergesehene Änderungen konnte reagiert werden. Da wir unseren 2. Trek in die Everest Region Wettertechnisch nicht antreten konnten, haben wir offen und fair über die Kosten reden können. Nabin ist ein sehr ehrlicher und vertrauensvoller Mensch! Er gibt sich wirklich viel Mühe und ist sich für nichts zu schade! Hier wird nicht um Geld gefalscht, hier herrscht Fairness! Herzliches Danke an Nabin für seine unglaubliche Unterstützung!
Krishna hat uns auf dem 14 tägigen Anapurna Cuircit als Guide begleitet. Auch er hat sich stets um unser Wohl bemüht. Wir bekamen eins der besten Zimmer in der Unterkunft, wenn möglich, hat er sich um warme Duschen bemüht und für ein abendliches Bier war er auch gerne zu haben. Gleichzeitig konnte er uns aber auch unseren Freiraum lassen. Es waren sehr angenehme 2 Wochen! Krishna ist ein sehr Hilfsbereiter und herzlicher Guide mit dem man viel lachen kann.
Khanna, unser Porter, hat mit Krishna ein super Team abgegeben. Er ist der Fitteste von allen, hat stets gute Musik zum Anspornen, wenn es gerade nötig ist, und strahlt eine vollkommener Zufriedenheit aus.
Letztendlich haben wir mit jedem Einzelnen der Himalyan Magic Treks Familie ein Gastfreundliches und Herzliches Erlebnis teilen dürfen.
Wir konnten mit allen sehr gut in Englisch kommunizieren und haben viel über ihre Kultur lernen dürfen. Und das auch außerhalb der Treks!

Wir kommen auf jeden Fall nach Nepal zurück und werden unsere Treks wieder mit unseren Freunden der Himalyan Magic Treks buchen!

Dickes Danke und bis Bald

Embark on the Annapurna Circuit Trek, a year-round adventure that beckons trekkers to explore its diverse beauty in every season—spring, autumn, summer, and winter. This iconic trek gained popularity after the historic ascent of Mount Annapurna in 1950, making it the first successful climb of an eight-thousand-meter peak.

Spring (March to May):

Optimal weather conditions characterize the spring season, making it the best time for the Annapurna Circuit Trek. With clear skies and stunning mountain views, spring offers a vibrant and busy trekking experience. The trek commences, promising a visual feast of natural wonders.

Monsoon (June to August):

While monsoon brings annual leave for many in the West, it is not the ideal time for the Annapurna Circuit Trek due to heavy rains. The trails become challenging, and satisfaction may be compromised. However, a few adventurous souls choose to trek during this season, embracing the unique challenges it presents.

Autumn (Mid-September to November):

Autumn emerges as the second most favored time to explore the Annapurna region. The breathtaking views are accompanied by fantastic weather, especially in October and November. The trek is a visual spectacle, with the added charm of festive celebrations in Nepal. Plan ahead, as lodges can be busy during this peak season.

Winter (December to February):

Reserved for experienced trekkers, winter on the Annapurna Circuit brings unpredictable weather and snowy trails. The sky remains clear, offering a different, mesmerizing landscape daily. Fewer trekkers on the trail and quieter lodges create a more secluded experience. Winter treks are for those seeking a unique challenge and are willing to navigate through the cold, making the journey even more rewarding.

Whether you seek the vibrant blooms of spring, the challenges of monsoon, the autumnal splendor, or the solitude of winter, the Annapurna Circuit Trek welcomes you to discover its ever-changing beauty throughout the year.

Embark on the Annapurna Circuit via Thorang-la Pass Trek with costs ranging from USD $750 to USD $1600 per person. The pricing varies based on factors such as group size, duration, hotel categories in Kathmandu and Pokhara, transportation modes (private/public bus or domestic flights for Jomsom/Pokhara/Kathmandu round trip), quality of food and accommodation in mountain lodges provided by the agency, professional guides, sturdy porters, and all necessary permits for the Annapurna Circuit Trek.

When planning your trip, consider checking different packages offered by agencies, assessing their professionalism, and scrutinizing the cost includes and excludes sections. To ensure a seamless experience, connect with our experts directly via email at Book your Annapurna adventure with us for an unforgettable journey amidst the Himalayas.

While there are no daunting high passes, proper acclimatization is crucial, ensuring a safe and enjoyable journey guided by our experienced and trained trek leaders. Experience the Himalayas in a way that suits both novices and nature enthusiasts alike.

While trekking the Annapurna Circuit, access to a hot shower is available with an additional cost, separate from the trekking packages. You'll have two options – gas or solar heating. Gas canisters are transported from nearby cities to teahouses by porters, making them relatively expensive. Expect to pay around $3 to $5 per shower, depending on your lodge's elevation. To conserve both energy and money, it's advisable not to shower too frequently, especially in cooler weather.

Regarding electricity, most teahouses rely on solar power, incurring a considerable installation cost. Charging your devices comes with a fee of $3 to $5 per item. To ensure a hassle-free experience, we recommend carrying a power bank or a portable solar charger during your Annapurna Circuit Trekking journey. Stay powered up and connected amidst the stunning landscapes of the Himalayas.
