Annapurna region

Trekking in the Annapurna region is the best way to have a close look at the formation of mysterious nature’s wonders. This region is one of the most popular trekking spots since 1977 when it was opened for the first time for foreigners. This region has been associated with the name of enormous Annapurna Peak I – one among eight highest peaks in the world (8091m). The first days of the trek involve walking through rice farms, forests and friendly villages in the lower realms of the Annapurna Conservation Area. Treks around the Annapurna are undoubtedly one of the best in the world, not only for the grandeur of the mountains and thick natural forests, but also for the variety of fascinating ethnic groups in the area (Bhotiya, Tibetan, Tamang, Magar, Gurung, Thakali and many more). The area is easily accessible from Pokhara. Apart from Pokhara there are two airports in this region: Humde (3350m) and Jomsom (2713m).
