Completed this trek several years ago, but remains my all time number one. It was a solo trip and a personal journey, an unforgettable experience. I did get altitude sickness one day but it was easily remedied by taking an extra day of rest. The tea houses are such an amazing part of the experience. There is nothing like it. Take your time, relax your pace, and take it all in.

Did this all the way back in 1987. It was a longer trek back then (yes, I'm an old timey guy telling you whippersnappers to get off my lawn), starting in Dumre and ending in Pokhara. I was 22, and the best advice I got before the trek was NOT to hire a porter. I probably would now, but maybe not, or make my son carry the heavy stuff. This was the trek of a lifetime. Not just the scenery, but the people you meet and what you learn about yourself. If you have the chance to do this hike, you should.

Trek of a life time! Fucking stunning! So many amazing guest houses, mountains! and of course amazing people!

did this in 2010. can't wait to go back

Great trekking route. Enjoyed every moment.

This is a classic for a reason. the views are amazing but its about the cultural exchange and the people you meet. Thorang La is the highlight. you need to bring clothes for -10C and shorts for 25C an amazing trek through several biogeoclimatic zones from jungle to tundra. A bucket list item

Insanely amazing experience. 132kms, 14days and one of the best things I’ve done in my life! Highly recommend, take it slow and enjoy the ride.

Unfortunately my view of gokyo lake 3 was frozen. However the adventure leaving at 4am to chase the sunrise up on gokyo ri was an experience! Again not for the light hearted Trekkers.

We used this trail as the final portion of a loop trip from Lukla to Everest Base Camp, over Chola Pass to Gokyo and then down this trail back to Lukla. So for us it was a downhill trek. Spectacular views of mountain on mountain!

Great trek lots of beautiful fauna and views to lake

Wow. To say this trail is a must would be to undersell it.
The Annapurna Circuit is a transformational experience emotionally and physically.
Prepare to hike through the seasons. Your trek will begin in lush jungle, banana trees and monkeys swinging about. As the days go by you will find yourself in beautiful pine forests that eventually give way to barren, unforgiving landscape. All culminating, of course, at the pass. Thorong La pass is evry bit as difficult as you have read. But, that's what we came for, right?

Beautiful scenery greats you at every turn. The trail is an incredibly social environment so bring some playing cards! Good luck and happy hiking ;)

This trail is off of the main EBC trail and goes to Island Peak. It's not a hard walk and takes less than 3 hours, but the mountains change around you. It is worth the side trip from the main trail.

This trail takes hikers and mountaineers across streams and through rocky and sandy landscapes with surrounding views of the Himalaya. I loved walking between the mountains and experiencing a "quieter" version of the Khumbu region, less traveled than the EBC trek itself. Yak and wildlife were plentiful in June. At the end, a short climb up the slope south of base camp reveals Imja Tse lake.

Nepal is an amazing country, and this trek is one of the best things I've ever done. Myself and two friends completed the circuit in 22 days. We carried our own gear and did not hire porters, but I would say we were in a very small minority.

The scenery couldn't be more breathtaking or the mountains more impressive. The slow changes in scenery over the trek was fascinating. From rainy jungles, pine forests, high deserts, and alpine environments, this trek has it all. Along the way are tea houses which have food and dry places to sleep at night. Bring a sleeping bag and you'll be set. The food is very basic, Order the Dal bhat and you get second helpings. Drink lots of tea.

note: The roads being built in the region were underway when we went, but not yet open to vehicles. I think the "trek" now would be a very different animal than it was in 2011. It's not fun to be trekking in the wilderness with jeeps and motorcycles driving past.
