About this tour

The Annapurna Circuit – considered Nepal’s classic trek – is legendary in the hiking community for its unrivalled variety of landscapes. However, few trekking trips complete the route, often skipping the final leg, which means missing out on deserted trails and unforgettable nights in quiet teahouses. We just couldn’t do that. Join us to tackle the full lap, enjoying superb views of the Annapurna and Dhaulagiri mountains and the ever-changing scenery. Based in teahouses throughout, we spend time in villages inhabited by many of Nepal’s different peoples, both Buddhist and Hindu.Aldo Kane Collection: A hand-selected range of adventures by our Brand Ambassador:“An absolute must for anyone who loves trekking in high mountain plateaus. You could say, this sort of adventure is a full reset for the mind and body. Passing ancient monasteries, bamboo forests and hushed valleys boasting spectacular views of the Annapurnas and Gangapurna, you’ll also have time to soak in everyday life in remote Buddhist and Hindu mountain villages along the way.”Why trek with Exodus?
