The Annapurna Region of Nepal is one of the most pristine and beautiful collection of incredible mountain peaks in all of the Himalayas! Its incredible snowcapped peaks reign over a myriad of flora, fauna and cultures that gather in the valleys below.
The queen of the mountains is Annapurna One, the 10th highest mountain in the world rising to 8,091 meters. It is surrounded in a small area by other massifs that seem to be paying homage with their incredible snowcapped peaks that pierce the cobalt blue skies.
There is a reason that the Annapurna Range is so popular with visitors and trekkers. It is home to a variety of ethnic groups that live together in peace and harmony. The trek begins near the lakeside city of Pokhara where you encounter plants indigenous to sub-tropical elevations. As you make your way up toward the high alpine passes, you will encounter large glaciers and walk above the tree line. All of this in just 13 incredible days!
This trip allows plenty of time to explore, take pictures, meet the local people and learn more about their diverse cultures who are more than happy to share their traditions with you. There are deep green valleys, incredible gorges, waterfalls and other views to delight your journey. Eagles soar on thermals overhead as you hear the cry of the hawks.
You will soon learn why the Annapurna Range is one of the most popular places for trekkers in Nepal. Its incredible beauty amidst the lofty peaks makes it one of the most memorable spots on Planet Earth. Isn't it time to come and see for yourself?
