Annapurna Circuit is world famous adventure trek. This trek is a relatively more strenuous trek than that of the base camp. However, where the similarities arise between the two treks is in terms of the topographical terrain- trekkers can be start both treks from subtropical zones, going through deciduous trans-Himalayan woods and ascend along alpine regions. The major difference in the route between the two treks, the takes the route through Manang and has trails that go to Thorong High Camp.

The journey possess forested hills and thick woods, towards Manang Village, the terrain changes and the vibrancy is quickly replaced by treeless rocky slopes. The trekking trail also reaches Muktinath Temple, one of the most revered famous Hindus and Buddhist temples in Nepal. And after Muktinath trek to beautiful villages to be reach like Jhong, Jharkot, Kagbeni, Marpha (Marpha is famous for apple garden and by apple kinds of products and old monastery), Tukuche, Larjung, Kalopany, Ghasha, Tatopani ( Enjoy natural hot spring bath), Shikha, Chitre and Ghorepani.
The trekking trail of the Annapurna Base Camp Trek is to reach the base camp itself, which is reached after going through famous ethnic Gurung villages like Ghorepani, Ghandruk, Chhomrong, Sinuwa, Bamboo, Dovan and Deurali.
