Annapurna Ranges treks & tours

The hiking trails in Nepal’s Annapurna Ranges are among the most beautiful and impressive in the world.

While not quite as well-known as its towering neighbour in the east (Everest is 8848m), the Annapurna Ranges offer a range of different trails, from a seven-day trek to Annapurna Base Camp to an 11-day circuit that’ll take you to altitudes of almost 5500m through flame-red rhododendron forests, shady stands of oak and ice-covered alpine rivers. 

Spoiler alert: they’re challenging and will put you well out of your comfort zone, regardless of how worn-in your hiking boots are. But they’re so worth it.

Why choose us

Trekking experts

As owners of the largest inbound tour operator in Nepal, we have years of experience on the ground. Our English-speaking local leaders are more than just someone to make sure you don’t get lost on the trail; they are there to share their stories and insights about the culture and history of the region, too.

Safety first

Your safety is our number one priority. All of our leaders are trained in Advanced Wilderness First Aid and are qualified AMS (Acute Mountain Sickness) specialists. Thanks to our specialised safety equipment and crew, our annual helicopter evacuation rescue rate is less than two per cent, well below the industry average.

Local Matters

Our assistant guides and porters are local to the Annapurna region and experienced in their field. But they’re not only trekking experts. They’re also your key to connecting with the local people, food, landscape and culture. With plenty of stories and tips to share, you’ll feel like an adopted local in no time.

Porter care

We are committed to ensuring respectful and fair working conditions for all trekking porters. Any leaders that join Intrepid must start out as a porter, even if they have led for another company before. This ensures that all our leaders understand the important role a porter plays on a trek and the challenges of the job. Learn more about our Porter Policy here.

Inclusions

Our trips include not only our incredible crew, but also all the safety gear, like First Aid kits, oxygen, medication for Acute Mountain Sickness, and a SAT phone, required to get you through the Annapurnas safely. All accommodation and transport is included.

Sustainable travel

We have a ‘bring in, bring out’ philosophy on our Annapurna treks, meaning any rubbish should be taken back to Kathmandu or Pokhara and disposed of in appropriate places there. We carbon offset all our trips too.

Epic Everest Base Camp Trek

Matthew · Traveled May 2024
Incredible trip, the trek was amazing and intrepid did a great job taking care of everything. Raj was an amazing leader and made sure everyone made it to base camp. The facilities at up near the top aren’t great and some parts of the trek are tough, but it’s absolutely worth it. Overall one of the best experiences in my life, I definitely recommend this trip.
