Annapurna Region

The Annapurna region is situated in middle north Nepal and is defined by the Kali Gandaki River to the west, the Marsyangdi and Dudh Khola valleys to the east, the Pokhara valley to the south and the Himalaya foothills that run along the Nepal-Tibetan border to the north

You will experience the ethnic and cultural diversity of the people in this region as you undertake the 3-week, 118 miles Annapurna Circuit. The wide variety of flora and fauna, the ever changing views of the mountains and of course the trekker- friendly climate all make this a truly memorable experience.

The Annapurna Conservation Area was established in 1986 under the auspices of the King Mahendra Trust for Nature Conservation. The project was built on the principle that ‘conservation is not a separation of people from nature. It is the empowerment of people as nature’s protectors’. The program began by educating the local lodge owners in hygiene and sanitation matters, fuel diversity by moving away from using local forest timber and in maintaining local culture. ACAP, a non-governmental organisation, has supported and encouraged the development of the local infrastructure and income generating activities in environmentally sensitive ways; solar power, bio-gas cooking and bio-degrading toilet systems. All this has resulted in the area providing some of the best trekking services to be found in Nepal.
