Annapurna Circuit trek 10 days is short and minimized classic ACT
Annapurna circuit trek for 10 days is a great adventure holiday that you can do in Nepal’s most beautiful Annapurna regions. The classical Annapurna circuit trek used to be 20 days or more longer but now due to accessibility of the road, it can be done even in 10 days. This is very good for the hikers who have a short period of time in Nepal but still want to do the Annapurna circuit trek in 10 days. Annapurna circuit trekking 10 days starts after the drive to Chame. This means you will miss the villages like Nyadi, Bahundanda, Syange, Jagat, Tal, Dharapani, Bagarchap, Danaq, and Timanag plus the diversified landscape of the lower altitude of the Annapurna circuit trek. These days trekkers can reach Chame in 1 day from Kathmandu and the next day they can start their trek. In this beautiful 10 days, Annapurna circuit trekking hikers can see Annapurna II, III, IV, Gangapurna, and Tilicho with the height of 7940 Meters, 7,555 Meters, 7,525 Meters, 7,4555 Meters, 7,134 Meters, and many other peaks.
Due to fewer days on the Annapurna circuit, hiking for 10 days is quite challenging due to the less timing. Hikers can enjoy the spectacular scenery of the mountain ranges, glacial lakes, glaciers, yak pastures, mountain terrains and many others. Thorong la pass is the ultimate destination of the 10 days Annapurna circuit. 8-9 hours of tough hikes through the base of throng peaks takes you to the Muktinath of Mustang. Frequent weather change that occurs on the trekking trails may happen on the trek so trekkers need to be careful and well prepared for this. Hotels around the trekking trails are very good and offer delicious food and comfortable beds on trekking so hikers no need not worry.

More about the Annapurna circuit Trek 10 Days
Thorong la Pass is the ultimate destination of the Annapurna circuit trek
The goal of the trek is to cross the thorong la pass. The Thorong La Pass is elevated at 5,416 meters from sea level and lies in front of the Thorong Peak at 6,144 meters. This peak is relatively less popular among the climbers but still, some people climb it. Nepal army does the climbing practice at this peak. The Thorong La Pass is quite tough to do because of the less oxygen and steep accent towards the top of the Thorong La 5146 meters. Crossing Throng La allows trekkers to complete their Annapurna circuit trek. Annapurna circuit means to circle the annapurna range by trek to reach the Muktinath which is located in the Mustang district. Trekkers can reach Pokhara by walking or with vehicles.
Thorong la pass is quite tough but manageable.
Thorong la Pass 5416 meters is a tough pass in Nepal. The pass connects two valleys (Manag and Mustang) so the winds blow faster here. Trekkers should have enough gear and take some precautions to avoid obstacles while on the pass. The pass can start from the thorong phedi 4600 meters of High Camp 4800 Meters. We advise you to sleep in Thorong Phedi because in Thorong High camp there is only one hotel usually remains crowded and the height of the hotel elevations makes you harder to sleep so it is better to sleep in Thorong Phedi and walk early to cross the Thorong la pass. Drinking enough water and some acclimatization help you to overcome the obstacles of the thorong la pass. We also recommend having enough gear for the thorong la pass.
Ice Lake Hike
On your Annapurna circuit trek for 10 days, you can go to Ice Lake which is elevated at the altitude of 4600 meters. This hike allows you to adjust your body against the Mountain sickness. The 9-10 hours hike allows you to enjoy the breathtaking scenery of the Annapurna ranges Annapurna II, Annapurna III, Annapurna IV, Gangapurna, Tilicho and many other mountains from very nice angles. You can see the beautiful Manag valleys while hiking to the Ice Lake. The hike is tough due to the accent climbing but it is definitely worthy and rewarding. Up there 2 lakes are located on the bottom of the peaks. Trekkers must have their food and water because there is nothing over there. You may see the yaks grazing on the mountains while hiking to the ice Lake.
Astonishing mountain ranges and vivid landscapes.
The Annapurna circuit trek is the best way to explore the astonishing mountain ranges of the Mt Annapurna ranges, Mt Manaslu Ranges as well and Mt Dhaulagiri ranges together in just 1 trek. The Claciacal annapurna circuit trek (Round Annapurna Trek) is now can be done in 10 days due to the road construction so you can explore the Annapurna range in just 10 days. But this trek can be challenging due to the fast accent of the height which may cause you altitude mountain sickness. You can see Mt Annapurna II 7,940 Meters, Mt Manaslu 8153 Meters, Annapurna III, Annapurna IV, Gangapurna, Mt Tilicho Peak, Mt Dhaulagiri 8,167 Meters, Dhaulagiri II, Tukuche peak, Nilgiri and many other peaks on the different days of your trek so this is the wholesome of the mountain looking opportunity. The landscapes in this trek route are very vivid from the sub-tropical to the tundra zone. It is a unique and very picturesque landscape which you can see on the Annapurna circuit trek for 10 days.

Annapurna Circuit Trek 10 days difficulty
How difficult is the Annapurna circuit trek 10 days? Well, the short itinerary and the altitude make the ACT Trek quite difficult. Throng la 5416 Meters is the ultimate altitude that trekkers must cross to arrive at the Muktinath. The way to throng la pass is also difficult because of the High elevations and continuous slow gradual trails. Most of the trekkers spent their night before Thorong la is High Camp 4800 Meters or Throng Phedi 4600 meters which is very high to sleep and most of the trekkers do not get enough sleep here. This is also a reason that makes the Throng la pass/Annapurna circuit trek quite difficult. 10 Days Annapurna circuit trek starts from Chame 2600 meters which is pretty high to start the hike that is why trekkers need to be more careful about their health but not worry.
Trekkers are required to trek every day for about 6-8 hours on the mountains terrain trekking trails. Some trails are quite easy but some are quite tough. If you are able to trek 6-8 hours in a day then you can do this Annapurna circuit trek. As there is a rest day on Manag that also help their bodies to adapt to that climate. The itinerary is designed to keep the trekkers very good in their ability. Rushing can create a problem that is why we say slow and steady which makes your Annapurna circuit trek goal achievable.
Permits for Annapurna circuit trek 10 days
Trekkers are required to take the permits for the Annapurna circuit trek for any durations. Once you get the permits it works till you return back and there is a check post everywhere around the trekking trails and your permits will be registered there. They keep the records there which makes them easier for them to find out the number of tourists and where they are heading. This will be also very useful if someone goes missing on the trek. There are two types of permits for the Annapurna region trekking. The first one is Annapurna conservation area project permits (ACCAP) and another one is TIMS permits. Since you do the Annapurna conservations the National park permits are necessary and you will get them in Kathmandu with the agency. Known as an ACCAP Permit which cost about 30$. On the other hand, you are also required to get the TIMS Card which cost about 10$ and you get to Kathmandu by the registered agent or by yourself if you are doing the trek individually.
Food and Accommodation on Annapurna circuit trek 10 days
Food and accommodations on the Annapurna circuit trek 10 days are quite good. There are plenty of tea houses/ hotels along the trekking routes with WIFI and hot showers. Most of the Hotels/Tea Houses have a shared bathroom but few of them also have a room with a bath inside. If you talk about the room then they are pretty much insulated with the ply board for warmth and have a bed with the foam mattress mostly. They also put the single warm blankets but due to the frequent use by different guests, you may feel uneasy using them that is the reason we tell you to bring your own sleeping bag so that you can wrap it over the sleeping bags. That makes you very warm in the extremely cold weather of the Annapurna circuit.
Talking about the meal on the trek, they have a set menu for each village and hotel. The menu rate is the same in each village but only the name is different. There are no price variations in food. The menu is prepared by the village tourism management committee and every hotel must follow it. Hotels offer you most types of food like western food (Spaghetti, macaroni, pizza, burger, sandwich, spring roll, and many others) Indian types of food, and Nepali food sets (Dal Bhat) for lunch and dinner. For breakfast, they offer local bread, omelettes, hash brown potatoes, omelettes, boiled potatoes and pancakes. Tea ( many types) and coffees are also served for the tourists. Some hotels also offer the desert as well.

Transportation for Annapurna circuit trek 10 days
It is short trek durations so trekkers have to skip the days by using the Jeep transportations as well as the flights from the Jomsom. Here we have discussed the what types of transportations you can use for this Annapurna circuit hike 10 days. Annapurna circuit trek 10 days cost depends on the transportaion you choose. Here on the cost we have not included transportaions. As we request we give you the cost details of the transportaions that occors on the 10 days Annapurna circuit trek
1. Transportation from Kathmandu to Besisahar
Trekkers can choose different mode of transportation to go Besisahar. It is 6-7 hours’ drive from Kathmandu through the black paved road but these days they are widening the road so it might take little longer as well. You can use the public vehicle which is more crowded and often they stop for the people to come in and goes out. This might be annoying to you so to get rid of it, you can use the private vehicle depends on the group size. There is jeep for the people if you are 3 to 6 and if you are 3 to less you can use the car to go Besisahar. If your group is more than 6 then you can take the Jumbo hiace van.
2. Transportation from Besisahar to Chame
This is off road drive. Trekkers need to use the local jeep available there in Besisahar. You can hire the jeep or go with the sharing/collection/public basis. If you hire the Jeep and go, you can tell driver to stop for the while to take photos on the ways as well as you can go comfortably. If you go with the public, it will be over passenger and won’t stop till the driver wants. The trail is not that good so we highly recommend to the trekkers to hire the Jeep to go Chame from Besisahar.
3. Transportation from jomsom to Pokhara or even from Muktinath
This is after the Thorong la pass. Hikers can take the flight from Jomsom to Pokhara or take the Jeep to go down to Beni. From beni you can take another vehicle to reach the Bokhara. Road to Beni is off-road and the road is very bad due to the widening and the geolocations. We recommend our guest to take the flight from Jomsom to Pokhara. If you want to take the jeep it is same cost as the flight and also very tiring and time consuming drive.
4. Flight or drive from Pokhara to Kathmandu
When you arrive to pokhara you have also another 2 options. Either you can take the tourist bus to go Kathmandu which takes the full day or fly to Kathmandu which just takes 30 minutes. If you take the flights it is more convenient as well as less time consuming so you have more time to explore the city of Pokhara and Kathmandu.
Read our client’s feedback on our service
Excellent Annapurna circuit and Lantang Trek
Between April and May 2019, I had the pleasure of doing 2 treks with Shreeram the young boss of Nepal Truk Hub Pvt.
I contacted him by email (as well as two other guides by email) a few weeks before my departure for Nepal to explain and validate my project:
1 short trek of 8 days at – 5000m
1 long trek of 18 to 20 days at +5000m
A few requirements: Just a guide and me, no porter and a good level of English.
I met Shreeram the day after my arrival in Kathmandu and the current immediately passed between us on the human, practical and financial levels.
In total we trekked and lived together for 26 days (Langtang Valley & Annapurna)
We spent fabulous moments of discovery, sharing, effort (especially for me…) of complicity and laughter.
Shreeram has a perfect knowledge of the mountain, its history, its fauna, its flora and its risks. During our days and depending on my physical condition, I have always been able to count on his sense of adaptation, his support sometimes (especially to carry my heavy photo box) and his patience.
Shreeram knows how to listen, observe and organize with the sole aim of satisfying you.
He has a serious culture, a desire to share his mountains, his country and he remains very curious about Europeans and our culture.
So I can highly recommend Shreeram!!
Thank you again Boss;) for these excellent moments and unforgettable memories!!

Namaste frederic BIEN
We highly appreciate your review and are happy that you are satisfied with our service. It was a very nice time with you and had great moments. We would be very happy to see you again in Nepal
Shreeram and team
Annapurna circuit trek 2019
Just returned from the Annapurna Circuit trek with a group of friends, and the experience has been nothing short of amazing! It would not have been possible without our awesome tour guide, Shreeram, and our two strong porters (who happen to look like Korean twins btw), Dev and Surendra.
Personally, I like to engage a local guide when trekking especially in unfamiliar places (this was our group’s first time in Nepal as well as doing such a long trek!), because I’d like to think that the local guides know the ins and outs of the trail better; making sure safety is the utmost priority while not compromising on the view and experience.
Fortunately for us, Shreeram did exactly what we expected of him and far more.
Throughout the 12 days Shreeram always made us feel safe, was observant, caring, and sensitive to our needs. He would advise us on the Do’s and Don’ts throughout the trek, and I am grateful that none of us ran into any major issues (whether general wellbeing/safety/comfort) under his care and guidance. He is also extremely knowledgeable about the Himalayas and the surrounding region, as he patiently answered all our questions and always kept us entertained with little nuggets of information. And added bonus to this all was Shreeram’s unique sense of humour which created a lighthearted vibe within our group, always making us chuckle away.
Not forgetting our porters Dev and Surendra who also did an amazing job, each of them carrying >20kgs over their shoulders every day (with a strap across their forehead to support the load :O ) , never once complaining, and always early to arrive at our destination to secure the best rooms possible for us.
All-in-all, we are extremely grateful to have had Shreeram, Dev and Surendra as part of our trip. While all the above may seem like “small” things, trust us when we say – it makes all the difference and is definitely what separates just “normal” from “GREAT”.
Response from Nepal Trek Hub
Hello and greetings from Nepal Trek Hub
Thank you very much for your valuable feedback regarding our service. We are very glad to be with you for two weeks and could provide our service. We had a really good time with you people and we never forget your team as well. The time we spent together was too short for us and we did not know that it passed so quickly… but the memories we have is always with us. See you again in Nepal.
Shreeram Thapaliya Managing director of Nepal Trek Hub
Wonderful guide for the Annapurna Circuit!
I used Nepal Trek hub to help guide me and 2 others through a 17-day trek through the Annapurna circuit; from Ngadi to the Thurong La pass, with detours to Ice Lake, Tilicho Lake, Tatopani, and Poon Hill. And I’m so glad we used a guide. Shreeram (or “Ram” as we called him) and his team of experienced porters were indispensable. There was major flooding in 2021 – the year before our trip – and Ram and his team helped us find the remaining undamaged trails and helped us pick the best hotels to stay at for the best prices during the whole trip. He also helped to navigate the rock fall areas and gave us invaluable knowledge of the local environment and culture (and he’s a pretty good Nepali teacher to boot!). There is something about having that local connection that just can’t be replaced. We had the trip of a lifetime and will definitely be using Nepal Trek Hub again next time we come back to Nepal!!

Thorong La pass on Annapurna circuit trek
Many of the trekkers hikers say Thorong la pass trek for the Annapurna circuit trek. The reason is the Annapurna circuit trek crosses the one of the High Pass of the Himalayas that is Thorong la pass 5416 Meters. Thorong la pass is named because the trail passes the base of the Thorong peak 6100 Meters. The Thorong peak is just on the right side of the Thorong La pass. Trekkers need more stamina to pass the Thorong la because it is elevated at the 5,416 Meters. Trekkers can either start from Thorong Phedi 4600 meters or Thorong High Camp 4800 Meters. It takes 4-5 hours to reach the top of the Thorong La pass. The trail to Thorong la pass is not that difficult. It goes accent slowly and gently by crossing the multiple zig-zag and this is the most difficult part of the Annapurna circuit hike.
