Trekking in the Annapurna Region

The Annapurna region, named after the world famous Mt. Annapurna (8091 m), is a land of spectacular beauty, diversity and contrasting landscapes. It is a trekkerís paradise with more than 30 peaks rising above 6000 m. This is one of the world's top trekking destinations with various options ranging from a few days to several weeks. This region also hosts the world's deepest gorge carved by the holy Kali Gandaki River which lies between Mt. Annapurna (8091 m) and Mt Dhaulagiri (8167 m). Stretching from subtropical lowlands with rhododendron forests in the south to high and dry alpine environment in the north, the Annapurna region features an outstanding variety of wildlife habitats and vegetation. This region is the home of rare and endangered mammals and birds and many of Nepalís brilliantly plumaged pheasants. As diverse as its geography with flora and fauna, the region is inhabited by various ethnic groups with a rich and intact culture.
