The Annapurna massif and its surrounding foothills offer one of the most spectacular treks in the world. Justifiably, the Annapurna circuit has become renowned as one of the world’s greatest treks. Whilst the full circuit trek, consisting of a 21-23 days trek, is for the more adventurous trekkers who have the appropriate physical condition and the necessary time on hand, the Annapurna area also offers a multitude of shorter treks. Treks here range from day hikes out of Pokhara to short treks of three to four days or excursions of a week or a fortnight.
The Annapurna region provides endless possibilities for trekking. The Annapurna Conservation Area Project (ACAP) is actively working towards the development and conservation of the entire region.
The Annapurna region is extremely rich in nature, culture and adventure, and while in the region you will be privy to a close view of the mountains Annapurna I (8,091m), II (7,939m), III (7,555m), IV (7,525m) and South (7,219m), which range in the western part of Nepal. Trekking in this region will leave you with a life-time memories.
Jomsom, Marpha, Kagbeni, Tatopani (Sulfur Spout), Manang, Mustang, Upper Mustang and Lo Manthang are some of the popular destinations in this region.
Annapurna Circuit, Round Annapurna, Annapurna Base Camp, Annapurna Sanctuary, Dhampus Trek, and Poon Hill are all extremely popular treks. We also recommend the Ghorepani trek, which is short and one of the most exciting in the region.
The best time to trek in the Annapurna region is from April to June and September to December.
