Annapurna Circuit Trekking

    Annapurna Circuit trek became one of the most controversial hiking routes in Nepal after some parts of the trail were turned into a road. There used to be many hikers walking from Besi Sahar to Nayapul nowadays the majority of people take a bus or a jeep at the beginning and at the end of the route to make it shorter and to skip walking on the road. We’d done quite a lot of trekking in Nepal and were prepared for this route to be a disappointment but fortunately, the trek turned to be much better than we anticipated. Before we walked the Annapurna Circuit trek we couldn’t find good information about how much road walk do you get, where is the best place to start and finish and why, how good are the alternative routes, etc. We decided to complete the whole route to check it out and to write the most detailed and comprehensive itinerary. We walked from Besi Sahar to Nayapul it took us 15 days to finish the circuit, we tried to skip walking on the road everywhere we could, out of 260 km of the trek we walked on the road 68 km and only 24 km were on a relatively busy road.
