The Annapurna region is the second most favoured trekking region in Nepal. Trekking in the Annapurna region provides spectacular views of gigantic snowcapped mountains such as Annapurna I (8091m) and Dhaulagiri (8167m) as well as the famous fish-tail mountain Machhapuchhre (6993m). Trekking in the Annapurna region provides a wide range as it extends from the valley floor below 1000 meters to the summit of Mount Annapurna at an altitude of 8091 meters above the sea level. Most of the area in the region comes under the Annapurna Conservation Area project (ACAP) which was established as a part of an innovate approach to protect the environment.
Various treks such as Annapurna Base Camp trek, Annapurna Circuit trek, Annapurna Panorama trek, Ghandruk Circuit trek can be carried out in the region. As you follow the trekking trails you will witness a diverse landscape passing through small villages surrounded by cultivated lands and as you get higher you encounter high altitude glacial lakes and high snowy passes, as well as rare flora and fauna. The region as a whole provides an exotic slice of Nepali and Tibetan culture. Trekking here provides an opportunity to experience the typical Nepali village, local people and their way of living a traditional life in the Himalaya.
All treks start or finish in the beautiful lakeside city of Pokhara, Nepal’s second tourist city, which has a well developed airport and road transport system as well as extensive hotels, shops, restaurants and other facilities.
