This guidebook covers the Annapurna Circuit and the Annapurna Sanctuary in Nepal, justifiably the most popular trekking regions. Includes the Pilgrim’s Trail (7-9 days) and Ghandruk Foothill Trek (4-5 days), and notes on other treks and trekking peaks. Complete access and planning information including Kathmandu and access into Annapurna, handling altitude.

Seasons:
Pre-monsoon (March to May) and post-monsoon (October to November) are the normal trekking seasons. Monsoon and winter trekking is possible but has its dangers.
Centres:
Acess through Kathmandu then Pokhara. Circuit visits Manang and Muktinath.
Difficulty:
Normal Himalayan trekking standard, with tea houses and camping both possible. Altitude (Thorong La at 5400m) is the main challenge - acclimatise properly. Look out for Maoists.
Must See:
Stunning views of the wall of the Annapurna range as well as Dhaulagiri and the surrounding peaks. Bhuddist temples and the wonderful people.
