Annapurna Region

Annapurna region is one of the best areas for trekking in Nepal- offering a variety of excellent treks of all grades and styles. According to a recent survey by Modern Maturity (USA) Annapurna region has been recognized as one of the world’s best trekking trails. More than 50,000 tourists annually visit this area. The region introduces us Nepal's spectacular diversity at its finest: various tribes and castes, a wide range of terrain, wooded alpine pastures from sub-tropical rainforest to hidden valleys, the deepest gorge of the world and windswept desert plateaus. The trails are good, the walking is relaxed and the spectacular 8000m mountains are breathtaking!

Our trek takes us along river valleys, up stone staircases, through rice paddies and rhododendron forests. On the way we cross the Thorong La pass (5416m), a challenging ascent and encounter numerous monkeys, birds and flowers. The popular trekking routes of this region are Jomsom, Annapurna Circuit and Annapurna Base Camp, Sikles, Lamjung, Dhaulagiri, Upper Mustang and around Pokhara. The best time to visit this region is during spring and autumn. Unlike other parts of Nepal, even the monsoon months are ideal to visit to Upper Mustang that falls in the rain shadow area. Most trekking routes in the Annapurna region are well organized in lodge based style. Regardless of the trek chosen, it is most likely that Pokhara would be either the starting or ending point of most of the treks in the Annapurna region.
