THE ANNAPURNA REGION

… A haven for wilderness trails that lead you into a blissful world of sublime beauty …

For a long time, the Annapurna region was hailed as Nepal’s foremost trekking destination, before being overshadowed by Solu-Khumbu for its proximity to Mount Everest. Additionally, the construction of roads connecting Manang to Besisahar, and Muktinath to Lo Manthang changed the experience of trekking the traditional Annapurna Circuit. However, the Annapurna region has re-created itself with new trails that avoid the roads and return trekkers to the pristine wilderness they were searching for – and it’s now grown more popular for adventure seekers and pilgrims than ever before.

DIVERSITY

The Annapurna region is home to seven ethnic groups, from Hindu farmers to Tibetan lamas. The most prominent ethnic groups of the Annapurna region are Gurungs, Thakalis, and Manangba. As you trek day by day, keep an eye out for their different traditional costumes, and see if you can learn to tell them all apart.

As well as ethnic diversity, the extremes in elevation allow for a remarkable range of biodiversity too. From sub-tropical lowland forests of oak, bamboo and rhododendron you’ll climb up to high alpine meadows and windswept desert plateaus near the high-altitude border of Tibet. Keep your eyes peeled for spotting pika, blue sleep, and Himalayan tahr; commonly sighted in the Annapurna region.

SIGHTS

Trekking in the Annapurna region takes place within the Annapurna Conservation Area, which covers nearly 7,629 sq. km. This was the first and is the largest conservation area in Nepal and protects many rare and native species of flora and fauna. Besides living attractions, two unique draws to the Annapurna region are Tilicho Lake (4950m) and the world’s deepest gorge along the Kali-Gandaki River.

Because of this multitude of features, the Annapurna region offers one of the most rewarding and special trekking opportunities in Nepal.

Annapurna Conservation Area is accessible by flight from Kathmandu, or by bus from Kathmandu and Pokhara.
