About the Annapurna Region

The Annapurna Massif and Mount Dhaulagiri dominate the central Himalayas. Nepal's "Second City," Pokhara, lies to the south of the mountains, which seem close enough to touch.

The region is amazingly varied. Trek altitudes range from 2500 feet / 800 meters to 18000 feet / 5500 meters. There are climate zones from Semi-Tropical (bananas and oranges groves) to Alpine. There are a dozen main ethnic groups, and at least six different styles of houses. 

Great treks include:

   Annapurna Circuit - 11 to 18 days

   Annapurna Sanctuary - 8 to 12 days

   Mustang - 12 to 14 days

   Siklis and Rambrong Danda - 5 or 10 days

   Muktinath Short Trek - 6 days

   Poon Hill - 4 to 7 days

   Kopre Danda - 10 to 13 days

But those are just samples: One of the best parts of our job is working with prospective guests to build an itinerary to suit their time and interests.
