Kathmandu’s Tribhuvan International Airport is directly connected to major cities in India, China, rest of South Asia, South East Asia and West Asia and to the rest of the world by transiting through New Delhi, Istanbul, Dubai, Abu Dhabi, Singapore, Bangkok and Hong Kong.

By bus you can reach Kathmandu from New Delhi and other major cities in North India. The main inter-city bus station is at Gongabu. From Kathmandu, it is a 7 to 9 hours’ drive, covering 200 km of distance to Pokhara.
There are motorcycles, bicycles, and SUVs available for rent to move within the city.
Lakeside (north and south) is the best location in Pokhara to select a cozy accommodation. There are several hotels, homestays and hostels, ranging from luxury to budgeted rooms. Not only the location presents amazing mountain views but also buzzes with daily routine, cultural programs, and numerous international backpackers.
What sets the Annapurna Circuit trek apart is its treacherous terrain and a topography which is a favorite of adventure lovers. The views of Annapurna massif as well as other eight-thousanders including Dhaulagiri (8167 m) and Mt. Manasalu (8163 m), are unforgettable. Memories of Manang, a beautiful hamlet, the Muktinath temple which is a holy site for followers of Hinduism and Buddhism and crossing the Thorung La Pass at an altitude of 5416m will remain with you forever.
The Annapurna circuit trek is a difficult hike and requires you to prepare diligently with the target of attaining your peak fitness by the time you land in Kathmandu. The terrain is taxing to your muscles and the thin air at high altitudes increases the risk of altitude sickness. Hence adequate acclimatisation is a must. The treks require two permit cards, which are TIMS, and Annapurna Conservation Area Permit (ACAP). Both these cards could be issued at either the Tourism Board Office at Kathmandu or Tourist Information center at Pokhara, open 10 am to 5 pm every day.
