Annapurna Region

The Annapurna trek around the range is one of the most popular high-altitude treks in Nepal which is named after the Hindu Goddess of Grain and Abundance. The Annapurna range dominates central Nepal, with Annapurna 1 being the highest at 8091m, followed by Annapurna 2 at 7973m, Annapurna 3 at 7555 and Annapurna South at 7219m. Other high peaks in the area include Tilicho Peak at 7134m and the simply stunning, sacred Machhapuchhre (Fishtail Mountain) at 6993m. and to the southen part of Annapurna lies the lush valleys around Pokhara in one of Nepal’s highest rainfall areas and to the north is the high altitude desert and highly erodible ‘badlands’ of Mustang, part of the Tibetan Plateau and the Marshyangdi River and to the west lies the world’s deepest gorge, carved out by the wild waters of the Kali Gandaki River to the east.

The Annapurna region is rich in cultural heritage and so is a great place to experience Nepal’s incredible cultural diversity. You will encounter Gurung culture in the lowlands, Thakali culture around Jomsom, Manangi culture in the east and Loba and Tibetan culture in the arid north. Typical Gurung village at Landruk, Ghandruk and Chhomrong, (fishtail) Machhapuchhre Base Camp, spectacular mountains view from Annapurna base camp, sunrise and mountains view from Poon hill, natural hot spring at Jhinudanda, Gurung & Magar Culture, mostly walk inside Annapurna Conservation Area and much more are the worthwhile of this trekking.
