Annapurna Trekking

Annapurna Trekking

Annapurna Trekking Region is considered the most popular trekking Destinations in Nepal, offering a variety of excellent treks of all grades and styles. Most of the treks in the Annapurna region generally start in the fertile lower foothills of the Himalayas through terraced rice fields, then oak and rhododendron forest as you ascend. Nepal's spectacular diversity appears at its finest as you trek in the Annapurna region: hidden valleys, high mountains, a wide range of terrain, different ethnic group and wildlife. As you climb from the subtropical jungle to alpine pastures the inhabitants change from farmers to herders, Hindu to Buddhist. There are many permanently settled villages in the Annapurnas and in the lower foothills where mostly farming communities predominate. One of the main ethnic communities you’ll encounter en route is the Gurung people, particularly in the village of Ghandruk. You’ll walk through the villages that are home to the famous Gorkha soldiers, who hail from the area. Insights into Hinduism and Animism bring the communities to life. You will enjoy the majestic mountain views, thick bamboo and rhododendron forests and a mix of indigenous cultures incomparable by other treks as you trek from lowland villages deep into the Annapurna Himal.

On the way you are sure to encounter rhesus macaques and langur monkeys, numerous birds of prey and a huge array of flowers and trees, including 3 species of rhododendron. Trekking to Annapurna South Base Camp (4200 m), commonly known as Annapurna Sanctuary is one of the most popular treks in Nepal. From the Base Camp the dynamic 360-degree view includes Annapurna I (8091 m) & III (7555 m), Machhapuchhare (Fish Tail), Varhha Shikar (7647 m), Khansar Kang (7485 m) and numerous other peaks standing like a screen of snow and ice and whilst here you may also see tahr, Himalayan weasles or pika (mouse-hare), though there are few birds in the area.

The most difficult day and perhaps the highlight of Annapurna Circuit is the experience you will feel while crossing Thorong Pass (5416 m). The long, tough ascent is rewarded with absolutely stunning high Himalayan scenery and over to the Kaligandaki valley through the entire Annapurna range, Mukut and Mustang Himal to the west. After Thorong Pass you will make a long descent to Muktinath which is a fascinating pilgrimage site sacred to both Hindus and Buddhists. It attracts many pilgrims. Another interesting trekking in the region is Ghorepani Poon Hill which is relatively short and easy. The high point of this trek is sunrise and the best panoramic views from the hilltop over the high Himalaya.
