Overview of Mini Annapurna Circuit Trek

Mini Annapurna Circuit Trek lets you take complete advantage of the region as it covers almost the entire Annapurna Circuit Trek; only the dirt road through the Kali Gandaki Valley is avoided. The 18 days Mini Annapurna Circuit Trek is one of the many adventures provided in the Annapurna region. The trail, which started in 1997, is famous for its beautiful scenery, which ranges from Snow-covered peaks to barren, treeless terrain.

As we move up in the counter-clockwise direction from Besishahar to Marshyangdi River, charismatic Himal Chuli and Manaslu attract your attention immediately. Places like Bagarshap (2160m), Chame, Pisang, Yak Kharka, Marpha, Larjung, etc., are a blessing while hiking the long circuit. As you reach the highest point of the Trek, the Thorong La Pass (5416 m high), the spectacular view of the Himalayas entices you ultimately. You will visit Muktinath Temple, the holy place of Hinduism, and take a flight back to Kathmandu via Pokhara.

The Mini Annapurna Circuit Trek provides all the advantages of a complete circuit trek but in much fewer days and an easy trek. This plan is suitable for those adventure travelers who have less time and wants to complete the world’s famous Annapurna Circuit Trek.

Trip Detail Information


We will be accommodated in 3-star hotels in Kathmandu and Pokhara; and teahouses during the trek. We will stay at Samsara Resort or a similar hotel in Kathmandu and Kuti Resort or a similar hotel in Pokhara.  All accommodations are on a twin-shared basis. A single supplement will be served on request and will cost an additional USD 260. Peregrine Treks will arrange rooms with attached washrooms; however, teahouses in some places only have shared washing and toilet facilities. Also, note that single rooms are readily available in Kathmandu, Pokhara, and the trekking regions at lower elevations, but it might be challenging to find them at higher elevations.


During our trek, we can enjoy authentic Nepalese food and the more common international cuisine (Tibetan, Continental, Italian, Indian, etc.). Breakfast and dinner will be provided from the teahouse or from a lodge menu where we spend the night, whereas lunch will be provided on the way to the next destination. All meals, including breakfast, lunch, and dinner, will be provided during trekking, while only breakfast will be available in Kathmandu and Pokhara. There will also be welcome and farewell dinners.

Physical Condition & Experience Requirements

This moderate trek is suitable for passionate walkers who can walk at least 5-7 hours daily with a light day pack. Walking in higher altitudes is more physically demanding than walking in lower altitudes; however, if we are in excellent health with average physical fitness and have a positive attitude, self-confidence, and strong determination, we can accomplish this trek. We are exercising and jogging regularly for weeks before the trip is an excellent idea to enhance our strength and stability. Past hiking experience would be an asset, but no technical skill is required for this trip. It is vital for participants with pre-existing medical conditions such as heart, lung, and blood diseases to consult their doctor before taking the trip. Before booking the trek, you are also advised to inform Peregrine Treks of any conditions.

Best Time to Travel

Autumn (Sept. to Nov.) and Spring (March to May) are the best seasons for trekking in the Annapurna region. The weather is sunny and warm with outstanding views. If you wish to avoid crowds and enjoy some alone time with nature, then taking this trip during winter (Dec., Jan., Feb.) could also be an option. However, the temperature during winter could be harsh for most guests. Trekking in the summer or monsoon season (June to Aug.) will be affected by rain, but the Summer trek could be a boon for a keen botanist.
