Exploring the Durbar Squares of Kathmandu, we not only witness the ancient excellence of the place but the courteous hospitality of the Nepalese people and the delicious cuisine they offer. With a relaxed day strolling around the valley, we commence our trek to the Annapurna circuit along with a trek to Annapurna Base Camp from a drive to Bhulbhule. We begin the walk from Bhulbhule to Jagat. Through a narrow motorable road, we walk from Dharapani to Chame. Following the Marsyangdi river, we head to Pisang. We trek to Manang, one of the tourist hubs of Nepal. We spend two nights in Manang, precisely aimed at acclimatizing with the increasing altitude. As an essential rule in trekking, we hike higher and sleep lower. Thus, we head up to the adjoining short hike routes around Manang. We continue with the trail and head to Yak Kharka and further to Thorong Phedi. From Thorong Phedi we make an ascent to one of the most exquisite passes in the Annapurna region, Thorong La Pass (5,416m/17,769ft). After traversing through the Thorong La pass, we head down to Muktinath, a sacred temple site for Hindus and Buddhists. We glare at the 108 water sprouts (Dhara), which is believed to have sacred water running, which when sprinkled or showered on us, undoing all the sins we've committed in our lives.

We further move on to Poon Hill(3,210m) from Ghorepani(2,860m) and head to Tadapani(2,630m). We climb a steep uphill till Chomrong(2,165m). Through the picturesque village and climb to the valley of the Modi River, we reach Himalaya. The trail from Himalaya(2,890) to Annapurna Base Camp(4,130m/13,549ft) is exceptionally artistic as we pass through Machhapuchhre Base Camp surrounded by majestic mountains like Annapurna Massifs, Dhaulagiri, Tilicho peak, and many more. 

We trek back from Annapurna Base Camp to Bamboo(2,350m). As we descend, the view of the dazzling mountain decreases and we get only occasional glimpses. We head back to Jhinu Dada(1,78m), where we relax in the natural hot spring. After all the way we have walked, this will be the perfect way to end the majestic trek. We trek to Siwa, Ghandruk Phedi from where we will drive to Pokhara. We will spend time on the lakeside of Pokhara city. Pokhara is a town of wonders and a great place to conclude the amazing trek and relax. There are lots of massage places which we can visit after weeks of the walk. We conclude our trek as we drive back to Kathmandu from Pokhara.

A trek around the Annapurna circuit and a hike to the southern side of Annapurna, this package is a blend of thrilling adventure and tranquility. We immerse ourselves in the inexpressible beauty of the snowy mountains. Starting from a historical and cultural tour around the ancient city of Kathmandu, we explore the depths of the icy Himalayan region.

Best Time to 27 Days Annapurna Circuit & Annapurna Base Camp trek

Although trekking is possible throughout the year each season has different advantages and attractions and advantages offer for trekking in the Annapurna region. The temperature in the mountains also depends according to the altitude range – the higher altitude, the lower the temperature.

March-May (Spring Season To Go For Annapurna Circuit and Annapurna Base Camp Trek)

The trekking season begins after March. By April, the trek route throughout the Himalayas will be rewarded with different full blossom rhododendron of red, pink, and white even at elevations of over 3,000 meters. The temperature starts rising from mid-March to mid-May. The weather is cool at this time. The sky is very clear and you can enjoy the clearest views of the mountains.

June-August (Summer Season)

It usually rains during this season. Monsoon generally begins around the end of June and continues up to the second week of August. The temperature during the days usually ranges from 10°C to 23°C and gets relatively colder at night ( 5°C to 10°C). Mornings are usually clear with clouds building up during the afternoon and disappearing again at night. The rain may cause some problems during the trek this month. Various plants bloom during this season. The valleys will be fresh and have a different view than during other seasons.

September-October (Autumn Season To Go For Annapurna Circuit and Base Camp Trek)

This is a famous time among tourists with the most favorable weather and perfect climate condition. The sun shines brightly, the skies are clear, you get a superb view of the mountains and the temperature is perfect for the daytime trek. You can enjoy spectacular starry skies since the sky is clear at night. The monsoons will be over by early September, and the weather ranges from mild to warm days. Daytime temperatures can reach up to 20°C in high altitudes. The nights are colder with temperatures going down to around 5°C. The greens that grew during monsoon fade to golden/amber, proving a spectacular contrast against the crystal blue skies. Grains are also ripening in the enclave. The environment is clean and the lowlands are lush. The biggest festivals of Nepal like Dashain, Tihar also fall during these seasons.


November is a busy season, the clearest month, with the crispy and sparkling sky. The daytime temperatures this month are usually the most stable, from mild to cool conditions. The humidity is also pretty dry with very cold nights

December-February (Winter Season)

The coldest time is from December through early February. After late February, the climate gradually gets warmer temperatures to get extremely cold dropping to -5°C at high altitudes. Daytime is pleasantly warm with sunshine. Despite being cold, the skies are usually very clear and mountain views are at their best. With snowy caps, it might snow and the ground will be snowy. The trails are the least busy at this time. It may not be the best season for beginners but experienced trekkers will have no problem.

The weather in the Himalayas is so unpredictable and the temperature may change quickly from day to night.


Our 27 Days Annapurna circuit & Annapurna Base Camp trekking package provides a rest day in Manang 3540m for proper acclimatization, where there is a significant risk of being affected by altitude sickness also called acute mountain sickness.  Altitude sickness is preventable but can be a life-threatening situation if its symptoms are left ignored. Staring from Bhulbhule 845 m and trekking in low elevation for four to five days before reaching Manang 3540 m provides plenty of time for our body to cope automatically with the existing high altitude environment and helps in reducing the chance of altitude sickness problem. Our trekking leader and guide have extensive first aid training and well -experienced in the Himalaya we use an oximeter to monitor your oxygen level and detect the symptoms. We guarantee your health will be in reliable hands. Your trek leader or guide will suggest precautions. The best way is to take your time and drink plenty of water at least 4 liters a day. If it is severe the only cure for altitude sickness is to descend immediately. Please note that your group leader has the ultimate responsibility to decide or stop your ascent based on your overall condition. It is essential to keep in mind that some are more vulnerable than others.

Trip Grade: Fitness level, Medical, and Health

In fact, this is a remote mountain journey, trek routes on the Annapurna circuit involve long climbs, steep descents, and straightforward roads following a good trial. To accomplish trek, past hiking experience would be an added advantage although no technical experience and skills are necessary.

Despite having the security advantage of traveler's cheques, we prefer cash exchange to avoid hassles like a lengthy process and a high rate of commission at the banks.

The maximum withdrawal amount is 35,000 Rupees for a 500 Rupees processing fee if you are using your foreign card.

If you use the money exchange facility at banks and financial institutions the service fee charge imposed is about 4% or more depending upon the bank.

Most importantly, tipping is at the traveler’s discretion and should be relied on good service that does not form the part of wages for your Guides, porters, and crew although they are very much appreciated. In Nepalese culture, a tip is an accepted and honored way to say thank you (Dhanyabada) for good service. Normally the tips are offered at the end of the trek and this is best done as a group. Most groups will give the trips in farewell dinner on the last evening or last day of the trek, to mark the end of the trip. The amount of the trip is entirely a personal preference that may be more or less depending upon your perception of service quality, length of trip, budget, and appreciation of their work. It is important to Discovery World Trekking crews who professionally take care of you all the time during the trekking, inspire excellent service, and offer enriching journey- a trip of once in a lifetime experience. We ensure that all of our crews including guides and porters are paid well and treated fairly with respect.

5 - Excellent

In early November my wife and I spent 16 days trekking in the Annapurna region of Nepal. We chose Discovery World Trekking after researching online and found the owner Paul to be very responsive to our initial inquiries. Paul was very quick and professional to provide us with information and also accommodated us with a last minute request to change our itinerary without a problem.Our guide Karan and porter Kul were really fun and informative travel companions. They managed all of the formalities during the trek; accommodation, meals, check points etc. leaving us essentially free to enjoy ourselves and our surroundings. Karan and Kul were always looking out for our safety and enjoyment and were truly a pleasure to be around. For those thinking of winging it on your own it is worth considering having a guide and porter who posses the local knowledge and route finding familiarity that can reduce the stress of a trip like this. In summary we were very happy with owner Paul's Discovery World Trekking Company and will not hesitate to use them for our next trek in Nepal.

Excellent service and an amazing experience. Paul and his team were very professional, greeting us at the airport for the transfer to our hotel and always punctual at other transit links along the trip.Our guide Siddanta was very polite and always helpful and we got on well during the trip despite the language barrier - his English was a lot better than my Nepalese! He also suggested an alternative to the end of our trip given the monsoon weather which we appreciated.Our porter Aaite was good humoured and helped us along when things got tough.The trek itself had some amazing scenery despite the monsoon weather obscuring the high peaks of the Annapurna range. However it rained far less than expected and the lack of other tourists made this a time of year worth considering.Accommodation in the tea houses and hotel was basic but made for an authentic Nepali experience. Likewise the local buses that bounce along the knife edge tracks will give you stories to tell although we were so scared at one point we had to get off and walk!Overall a great trip and we would recommend DTW and use them again in future.

I usually get altitude sickness. Is there a way to avoid it?

Discovery World Trekking has well-trained team members to deal with altitude sickness. Our team members carry oximeters to monitor the oxygen level at high altitudes to detect early symptoms. In emergencies, we deploy rescue helicopters, but your insurance must cover the costs. However, you can reduce the chances of altitude sickness by:

  • Cutting off caffeinated, alcoholic, and smoking items
  • Drinking at least 4 liters of water a day
  • Trekking slowly
  • Not skipping the acclimatization days
  • Continuing with Diamox, if any symptoms show up
  • Drinking garlic soup

Some places may offer hot running water for a shower for an additional fee.

Is the drinking water safe on the trails in Annapurna region ?

Bottled water is easily available at a low cost. You need to drink mineral water or boiled or filtered water in those areas. It is better to use water purification drops and tablets which you can either bring from your own country or buy in Kathmandu or Pokhara. Discovery World Trekking also provides water purifier pills.

We advise you not to drink river, tap, and well water at trekking regions as they may not be drinkable. 

Do I need to bring my own medicines for this Trek?

If you are allergic to specific medicines, it is better to consult your doctor and bring your own. Discovery World Trekking regards its clients as its family. So, Discovery World Trekking will provide you with medical kits to avoid altitude sickness and other probable sicknesses.

I am a vegetarian. Will I get enough meals during the trek?

Discovery World Trekking does not recommend non-veg items at trekking regions because the meat in such places may not be hygienic. We also strongly advise you to avoid dairy and cheese items along with alcohol. So, our packages are suitable for all - vegans, vegetarians, and non-vegetarians.
