The Annapurna Circuit is no doubt one of the most renowned treks in the globe; its magnificence will enthrall the adventure seekers right from their day one. Though it is a challenging trek, but it is also manageable at the same time for average trekkers. Hiking in the grand Himalayan Mountains is typically an once-in-a-lifetime experience that you don’t want to miss.

The right clothing is essential: Clothing choices will depend on the time of year you trek. Avoid cotton, stick to technical clothes. Cotton absorbs sweat, gets heavy, and never dries! We trekked in the middle of May and it was hot during the days and cool at night. Don’t forget a warm hat for nighttime and high elevations.

Get your travel insurance before your adventure: Well, travel insurance is a no brainer for any trekking adventure. And Annapurna Circuit is a strenuous trek, so you have to be ready.
