The pilgrimage circuit around the awe-inspiring Annapurna Range in western Nepal remains one of the world’s classic trekking destinations. Recently, Lonely Planet dubbed the Annapurna Circuit a Top 10 destination for 2021.
Here’s what Lonely Planet has to say:
A dream destination for hikers, serious walkers and trekkers, the Annapurna region has stunning mountains and hidden hilltop villages. There are also charming lodges serving food and pots of delicious tea. Hikes here offer everything, from farmland and rice paddies, through pastures and fields to craggy summits and snowy embankments. Tilicho Lake and the village of Ngawal are highlights, with the latter offering beautiful views across the valley of snowy summits. There are experiences to suit everyone, from short treks to month-long journeys of the Annapurna Circuit and Sanctuary trails.
