18-day Trek around Annapurna Peak


Join IFMGA/UIAGM certified mountain guide Matteo on a dream 18-day trek around the stunning Annapurna Peak in the Himalayas!


18 Days

Oct, Nov




In Sanskrit, Annapurna means “she who is full of food”.  Annapurna Devi is also a Goddess of abundance. And of course, the Annapurna range represents her, holds her temple, is abundant. From rice fields to forests, waterfalls and cliffs, this mountain range in the Nepalese Himalayas has it all. It is no surprise then that so many explorers and adventurers have voted it the best long distance trek in the world. But of course, it is not easy, and requires proper guidance. On this stunning 18-day trek, I will show you one of the world’s most beautiful trekking circuits.

Our trip begins in Kathmandu, a beautiful city which we will also have time to explore. Then, we will take a jeep to Beshishar which will lead us to Chame, the starting point of our trek. From there we will walk every day between 5 to 8 hours discovering the landscapes and cultures along the way. When we reach Manang we will spend some time acclimatising as we will be covering elevation levels of up to 6000 meters when we get to Thorong Peak! Consequently, it is important to have a good fitness level and proper equipment.

Of course, I will be there every step of the way to guide and help you. We will also have porters to help carry our things and meals will be included. This means that you will be able to focus on your trekking and on enjoying this wonderful experience!

Are you ready to discover the beautiful Annapurna in Nepal? Then book your place now and please join me on this once in a lifetime experience where you will see abundance all around you!

I also organise ski tours in Iceland and rock climbing expeditions in Greece!

What people are saying about Matteo


3 days for beginners, 2 days for more experimented .. and depending on the logging, difficulty increases ... should be more visible .. Booking was made personally but not by the organization team Pros: - Andreas’s skill as a guide, impressive - knowledge of the mountain - calm and patience Cons : - preparation required from Tete Rousse vs Goûter .. better information needed - extra costs related to the summit .. food, lift, trains , ....



We were very satisfied with the whole experience. Our guide Matteo was very experienced and taught us a lot during the short trip. He looked after us and made sure that we felt secure even on the most dangerous stages of the ascent and descent. I cannot express enough how happy we were with Matteo's support and guidance. He was very professional during the whole trip and also very jovial and kept us a good company. His knowledge of the mountains and mountaineering is exceptional and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend him to anyone wishing to climb in the Alps.



We were a bit unlucky with the weather, so we didn't summit. But given the conditions, I think we did the best we could, we've scaled some smaller peaks and practiced our spline skills. Matteo is great guide, highly recommend.
