Muktinath, Tatopani, Ghorepani and Poonhill are the major hubs during the Annapurna Circuit Trek. Muktinath Temple, located in the Mustang Region of Nepal, is a sacred site for the followers of Hinduism and Buddhism. The Muktinath Temple is known as a place for moksha (liberation). The Mukti Dhara, Shaligram and Jwala Mai temple are few attractions in the Muktinath area.

Tatopani is another place to enjoy during the trek. In Nepali, Tatopani means hot water. Hence, Tatopani is a hot water spring.

We believe in Humanity

We donate up to 12% of its annual revenue to local community projects like regular maintenance of government schools, rebuilding of earthquake affected houses etc.
Sponsorship is one of the major activities to help orphan children. We also help to conduct sponsorship by collaboration with some organizations.
Volunteering Program

Trekking is an adventure activity in which people walk through villages and climb few hills. The path is usually steep hill and we will likely encounter snows at higher altitude.
In my opinion, trekking is good for everyone who is physically fit, healthy and loves adventure and outdoor activities.
You will be trekking countryside, high elevation, wild and remote areas of the Himalaya. Guide does not only show you trekking paths, he also helps you to be safe and entertain you during the trekking. And this will make your trip joyful. Although you have experience of trekking or hiking, our guide will certainly enhance your good experience since most of them have more than 10 years experience in the Himalaya.
Difficulty of trekking depends on specific trek. We define difficulty of trekking through trip grade. Basically, there are 3 types of trekking - Easy trekking, moderate trekking and hard trekking. But climbing is of course harder and challenging but It also can be categorized from less challenging to hard challenging.
Indeed, travel insurance is mandatory. It must cover Helicopter rescue and medical insurance, in case of some emergency. We would like to suggest you World Nomads because it covers medical evacuation and heli rescue up to 6000 m.
It depends on specific trekking routes. Some areas like Upper Mustang, Manaslu Circuit, Upper Dolpo etc require special permit, whereas other require only conservation area/national park permit. All trekking routes require TIMS. But don't worry ! We will manage all permits for you.
During the entire trek, we usually walk 4 to 6 hours each day. It will be between 5 to 15 kilometers each day.
Standard twin shared accommodation is provided in hotel in Kathmandu. In higher elevation, there is not luxurious hotel. So tea house and lodge accommodation is provided in the higher elevation.
Of course not. We provide a porter who will carry you stuffs. But remember, a porter is provided for 2 trekkers, and each porter can carry only up to 20 kg.
Some of the trekking routes were damaged but most of them were not. Among them, Langtang valley was badly damaged, but now it is reconstructing and safe now. Earthquake 2015 caused avalanche in Everest and killed several mountaineers and also destroyed some tea houses. But rest of the places of Everest are relatively unaffected. Western Nepal was not affected by earthquake at all.
There are several possibilities which are almost endless. Everest Base Camp, Everest Three Passes Annapurna Base Camp, Annapurna Circuit, Langtang Valley, Manaslu Circuit and Upper Mustang are the most popular routes. But there are numerals trekking places all round the country.
It is not mandatory tipping to guide and porter. But they appreciate your small gratuity after your trek ends. By the way, tipping is a great way to show your appreciation for team and devoted attention of guide and porter to your successful trip. But you are free to give tip to guide and porter how much you would want.
