Annapurna Circuit is a trek located at the central Himalaya of Nepal in Annapurna ranges. The distance of the route varies between 160–230 km (100-145 mi), depending on where motor transportation is used and where the trek is finished. This trek crosses two different river valleys and encloses the Annapurna. The trail reaches its highest end at Thorung La pass (5416m/17769 ft), touching the edge of the Tibetan plateau. Basically all trekkers hike the route anticlockwise, as this way the daily altitude gain is slower, and crossing the high Thorong La pass is easier and safer.

Beside to the Annapurna Circuit Trek, Tilicko Lake and Nar Phu Valley Trek is also popular in the region. However, this is less traversed and is off the beaten path trek in the region. Nar Phu Circuit is a recently proposed trek that can end at Jomsom traversing Mesokanto La Pass (5200m). The mountain panorama, seen at close quarters includes the Annapurna Massif (Annapurna I-IV), Dhaulagiri, Machhapuchhre, Manaslu, Gangapurna, Tilicho Peak, Pisang Peak, and Paungda Danda. Numerous other peaks of 6000-8000m in elevation rise from the Annapurna range.

Annapurna Circuit has always been labeled as the best long-distance trek in the world, as it combines a wide variety of climate zones from sub-tropical to 600 m altitude to the arctic at 5416 m altitude. It includes a cultural diversity from Hindu villages at the low foothills to the Tibetan culture of Manang Valley and lower Mustang. Continuing construction of a road has reduced the trail and has changed the villages. The Beisahar-Manag road has been constructed which goes through the trekking trail most of the time. With construction of the road, mountain bikers are attracted and is also becoming one of the world's most popular mountain biking destinations.
